Discontinued
This article is about a discontinued feature.

The Ambassador Program acted as a Roblox referral system members to gain more Tickets. The program was released on April 22, 2009, along with the extension of 32 more character and in-game colors.[1]

Players were required to link Roblox via other websites and each link would award all players 2 Tickets per domain. With three active links, the Ambassador Badge would be given. A cap was set at 50 links for all players to prevent abuse of the system.

In 2009 the Well Connected Gift of Linkmaster, which could also be purchased for 400 Robux or 4,000 Tickets on the Avatar Shop[2] was given to users who were in the Ambassador Program.

On October 14, 2014, Roblox Admin Gordonrox24 announced that the Ambassador badge would be deleted and removed from all profiles, a decision that was met by heavy criticism from the Roblox community.

Linking

Below details how the Ambassador badge was attained.

  1. Visit the Roblox Ambassador page.
  2. A HTML link was provided by Roblox, this needed to be copied and pasted onto another site.
  3. Roblox requested the off-site link where the HTML code had been embedded.

Once all these steps were completed, the user could then 'Submit'.

Removal

On March 6, 2012, Roblox announced that the ambassador program was discontinued.

Social Media Manager Taylor Whitmer reported on the Roblox blog, stating that that feature was only used to make profit and had no usage for promotions.

After two years of experimenting, we have realized that the program is not as valuable as players who come to us through word of mouth or through social media. The Ambassador Program became spammy, which we realized was not a benefit to our players or other websites. We have looked at the numbers, and we simply don't have enough users to justify continuing the program. Part of being a healthy company and an elegant service is removing things rather than adding them.
