New notices!

For those who are unaware, notices can be found on multiple pages across the wiki. These include notices giving a warning to readers, or notices to editors that a page needs to be rewritten. These can also include notices informing the presence of an interwiki project dedicated to a game, or a notice that a page's contents are outdated. Which is why I'm happy to announce that...

We have updated our notices to a more modern style!
Previously


Our modern styled notifications are provided from a module on the developer wiki which can be found here. Full documentation is available there.

The new notifications feature a more modern style, with one side using the specified color while the rest is a white that matches our wiki's theme. Additionally, i…

We have migrated to UCP

Hi, everyone! It's Acebatonfan again! Yesterday afternoon, the Roblox Wikia migrated to the Unified Community Platform. There were some major changes, and this blog post is going to address some of those and ((hopefully)) help you navigate some of our new and upgraded features.


The following are known issues that might impact the Roblox Wikia on your end. We are working on fixing these issues.

  • The username template does not work at the moment
  • The notifications template does not work at the moment, so our notifications will not be displayed properly or displayed at all
    • Update 10/8: Due to its code not being compatible with UCP, we have decided to delete the template until it is supported.

With the migration to UCP, Special:WikiActivity has been…

Sudden changes to UGC item policies

Hey all,

Last night, Roblox made a heavy & sudden change to privatize sales data on all catalog items (including their own items and UGC items). Our current UGC policies were entirely reliant upon the sales data, and as such these policies are being changed to use data other than sales.

For the time being, all creation of UGC pages is on hold while we sort out UGC policies internally. On a normal basis, we would have these policies decided ahead of time. However, the removal of the sales data was a sudden change that was made without announcement, and as such we need more time to figure out new policies for these items.

Items created by the ROBLOX account will still be allowed as items created by staff are automatically notable. All UGC pages cr…

Wiki news: changing to talk pages

Hi, everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying the last of their summer or the start of a new school year! Woohoo! (**cries from the nightmares school still gives me years after graduating**)

You may have been receiving some notifications about blog posts from Fandom over the past few weeks. Fandom is in the process of migrating its community with Gamepedia. With the migration comes updates to modernize the Fandom platform and MediaWiki code we all use to participate in the Roblox Wikia. The update - the Unified Community Platform (UCP) - requires us to make some changes on the Roblox Wikia so that the transition to the new platform is smoother for everyone.

One big experimental feature on Fandom was article comments and message walls. Fandom has…

Wiki redesign, notability updates, and more

Hello everyone! We haven't had an announcement for a while, or made too many changes around here for that matter. But now with extra downtime from school being over for the middle of the year along with other reasons, we've finally sorted out various pending changes to the wiki and are ready to announce them, along with other updates.


The wiki has been pending a new look for a while. We've had the same design for a bit too long. Yesterday we released a new design with colour adjustments, a new wordmark and icon design, a different background, and a new font.


This look is hoping to make the wiki up to date with the more modern look and feel of Roblox while still having the same atmosphere as it did previously. Do let us know what you think.


Ro…

New wiki policies and some reminders of old ones

Hi, everyone! I hope many of you are enjoying the fun of learning online (and having extra time to spend on your favorite Roblox Wikia). As the wiki gains more popularity, us administrators and moderators often need to adjust some of our policies. We also have many new editors who would benefit from a quick tl;dr on some of our big policies. For a lot of this, I will be quoting directly from our Rules page and out Policies and guidelines page and explaining exactly what it means when you are editing the Wikia.



The Roblox Wikia, its administrators, and its moderators are not affiliated with the Roblox corporation and are not Roblox administrators. Please contact Roblox's support team on their support page for any concerns regarding your Roblox acco…

Major change to wiki forum

Hello everyone. We've had to make a rather large and sudden change to how the forums on this wiki work, and before anything bad happens, we'd like to explain what happened and why.

In short, we have changed to wiki-style forums, and the old forums are now gone. This was something somewhat out of our control - Special:Forum is being deprecated globally, and we chose the better replacement option for this wiki.


What we presume to be the most commonly asked questions:

Why do the old forums have to be removed?
This was a decision from Fandom Staff, and is affecting every Fandom wiki. It is partially out of our control. You can read details on the change on this blog post on Community Central made by Fandom staff, including why they can't keep the …

Notability policy updates & page rules update

Hi everyone! A week ago, we asked about some new additions and changes to our notability policy. With a few tweaks and one redundant criteria removed, we are announcing that these are now live. Along with a few minor things we changed, here's a quick rundown of what was modified.


Here are the notability criteria points that were added based from last week's proposals. These all apply to the "Player" section of the notability criteria table.

  • Is a major credited contributor/co-developer of a notable game
  • Is a minor credited contributor/co-developer of 2-3 notable games
  • Is an artist (including 3D modelers & clothing designers) that is featured (with crediting) in or that contributed to 2-3 notable games
  • Is a winner of an official Roblox competition…

Roblox Premium is being released globally!

About a month ago, a new membership named Roblox Premium began to roll out to many countries. It was slowly being rolled out to random users, without a single official announcement from Roblox about it. All the community knew about it was that it was a possible replacement of Builders Club, which was later proven true.

However, recently, it has been officially announced by Roblox and more information has been provided to the community regarding the membership. On September 23, 2019, a new blog post was created on the Roblox blog which introduces Premium to the entire community. Before, Premium was rolled out to select countries, but it is now officially being released worldwide. Feel free to read the blog post if you would like even more in…
