The Ban Hammer is often referenced in metaphors for being banned from Roblox.

ban is a form of account suspension that can occur when a player violates the Terms of Use on Roblox. Players are typically given warnings on their first few offences, and the amount of warnings a user can obtain before getting an actual ban varies.

If the violation is serious, such as phishing, scamming or violation of federal law, accounts can be deleted without any prior notices or commands.

Additionally, a player can get banned from an individual game, however this ban is only carried out by a game moderator, not by a Roblox administrator. An admin command plugin is usually used to carry out these bans. This can also happen to any player if a server is locked by an in-game admin or moderator.

Robloxians are unable to view the profiles of deleted accounts. A bug on January 15, 2014, gave users access to terminated account profiles. Moderators initially claimed that the bug was a new update. However, Arbolito, a Roblox user, confirmed that this was an error with Roblox's programming and was later nullified. [citation needed]


Ban level

Bans can be severe or minor depending on the offence. Users can be banned for different lengths of time.

Users who violate Roblox's Terms of Use will be given one of these reprimands. These can range from in-game kicks to permanent IP bans.

In-game bans

An "in-game ban", not given by Roblox staff but instead by game owners or players with admin powers within a place, only restricts the player's access to a specific game. These bans can range from being kicked from a server to being permanently banned from a game. If a player is banned from a game, they are usually restricted from access until the server is shut down unless another one is running. Players with in-game bans still have access to the Roblox website, their own places and other games they can access. This ban will not affect your moderation history.

However, some places may block access to specific players and theoretically ban them; this usually occurs in group-run places with restrictions imposed on other groups or users. A player who is blocked from a game may also be immediately kicked from the server. This can also happen to any player if a server is locked by an in-game admin (you will not have access to the server unless it is unlocked or restarted).

Exploiting

Main article: Exploit

Exploiting is a major violation of the Terms of Service and can result in light or harsh moderation action depending on the severity of the exploit. For this reason, exploiters commonly do their business exploiting on alternate accounts (however this can backfire if the account is IP banned, in which case they may also choose to use a VPN). Due to this evasion method, it is very difficult to capture an exploiter.

However, there are other techniques that developers can use in order to identify exploiters. For instance, on

Shedletsky's Sword Fight on the Heights IV, the game had an unobtainable badge without exploiting, called "Touch The Divine." If a user were to use any form of exploit to grant themselves this badge, that user would automatically receive a ban (most likely an account deletion/termination or most less warning or a ban).

Issues

Private servers

If an account is banned or terminated and has an active subscription to a private server, the subscription will continue after each renewal date as long as they still have sufficient Robux in the account to rent another month of the server. It is unknown whether this will ever be patched.

Audio refund incident

On July 4, 2018, thousands of accounts on Roblox were banned for "Unauthorized charges/disputed charges" after unintentionally or intentionally receiving a double refund for uploading audio that was rejected. Almost all the bans given were permanent, and Roblox has announced that they are reinstating accounts that were affected (provided that they received a refund unintentionally).

Plugin incident

On March 11, 2018, 10 user accounts were banned due to a bug with a cleanup process banning users using the word “Editor” in the title. This caused groups of terminated accounts to have code leaked.

Botting incident

On October 17, 2018, thousands of accounts received a termination for "Roblox ToS Violation". This ban wave primarily targeted bot users due to scams that were being perpetuated by them, although some innocent users which included known developers and traders were affected as well. All the terminations were given out at 4:51:49 PM.

URL error

If the URL "https://www.roblox.com/Membership/NotApproved.aspx?ID=" was accessed (the page the user will always be redirected to when ban/warning is in effect), it would show the last moderation action that the user received. The page would experience hiccups if the moderation action took place before Roblox's font change to the Gotham font.

Doing this without having any moderation history on a user's account instantly redirected them to the default Roblox home page. This was patched in early 2020.

Exploiting ban wave

On April 24, 2020, many users received bans of varying time amounts for "exploiting", as a way to target the working practice of exploiting using the Lua utility Synapse. Whether or not a majority of the users were innocent is debated. Some of the targeted users were banned for using FPS unlockers, despite Roblox's consensus that they are allowed. The banwave took place between 9:38 and 9:42 PDT.

Appeals & Membership

Users are encouraged to appeal a moderation action through an email to appeals@roblox.com. If the moderation action is deemed to be unfair, it can be lifted. Many users believe that the Roblox appeals system is unfair because appeals have an extremely low return rate.

NewExporiationDate

A message bar notifying a banned BC member that they can cancel their membership for the duration of their ban. This particular section is no longer used.

Players with Roblox Premium who are banned receive an additional notification when their accounts are banned. This notification identifies when the player's Roblox membership will expire or renew and how to contact Roblox if the player wants to cancel his/her membership for the duration of their ban.

Criticism

Many users who have created new accounts state that their previous account was banned for no apparent or sufficient reason. A glitch on the mobile client occasionally causes the player to see a message that they are permanently banned when they have received no recent moderator sanctions. It is also known that Roblox bots troll or pretend to be a parent asking for some unknown user's account to be banned/deleted, though its been confirmed that you can no longer get your account deleted due to parents request (A test was hosted and they reply with something on the lines of "Unfortunately we can not do that").

Some users claim to have been banned for no logical reason. A rumor that spread throughout 2011–2013 noted that moderator MSE6 banned users for no reason. b1tsh1ft has been rumored to ban users who post a topic within the wrong subforum. After b1tsh1ft was fired, the rumor spread to a new mod, EliteEinherjar.

Trivia

This section is a trivia section. Please relocate any relevant information into other sections of the article.

  • According toShedletsky (Telamon at the time), the first problematic user that Roblox staff encountered on the platform was found on October 17, 2006.[18] However, it is unknown as to who the first user to be banned is.
  • When someone receives a 14-day ban, the moderator note can state that their account has been terminated even though it has not.
