ROBLOX is an automated staff account with the same name as the platform itself, primarily used to publish items to the catalog. It has a capitalized name because Roblox was officially stylized as "ROBLOX" at the time of its creation. This account used to have Turbo Builders Club, and now has Outrageous Builders Club.
The administrators, who have used the account collectively, made more than 100 places; only 27 of them are active. ROBLOX's places include all of the starter places and other classic games, such as Crossroads and Chaos Canyon.
Not due to popular belief, the account was switched to different IDs multiple times, before landing in the ID 1 spot. "Admin" was the first user, but was moved to ID 18 and later banned.
Until 2014, ROBLOX had two friends, before its friends list was wiped out.
OVOTango Hacking Incident
In 2015, a user named "OVOTango" hacked ROBLOX so that he could get onto his friends list. ROBLOX later unfriended him, and ROBLOX themselves said it was for Make A Wish. For some reason, OVOTango claimed that he was ROBLOX's friend "because of cancer research". OVOTango kept saying "A Legend Never Dies...", referring to the time he was ROBLOX's only friend.
Account creation glitch
When Roblox decommissioned Alpha stage, commissioned Beta stage and launched officially, ROBLOX's account creation date, including many others created in 2004, was subsequently changed to February 2006.
ROBLOX's inventory was publicly viewable until sometime in 2015, after which it went private and became unable to be viewed by regular users. ROBLOX’s most recently published hats can still be viewed through the "collections" showcase on its profile, however.
The appearance of ROBLOX used to be connected to all Guest accounts. For instance, if the ROBLOX account decided to put on a Sparkle Time Fedora, all guest accounts following the changed avatar would get the Sparkle Time Fedora. To combat this, the accounts DefaultGuest, BillyBloxxer, and BettyBloxxer were created to keep the ROBLOX account's appearance separate from Guests and to define the Guest look.
Male guests, using the look from BillyBloxxer, wear the True Blue Hair. Female guests, using the look from BettyBloxxer, wear the Pinktastic Hair. Ungendered Guests (those who don't pick a gender or play on iOS devices) wear the 'R' Baseball Cap.
When gear was first released, this became a problem. Any guest playing a game that allowed gear would receive all of the gear ROBLOX owned. Both of these were fixed by creating the BillyBloxxer, BettyBloxxer and DefaultGuest accounts, which became the new outfits for guests.
The ROBLOX account hosted a variety of games up to September 12th, 2017(?), which slowly diminished with many places becoming inactive until all were taken down on the date mentioned (except for Crossroads). Some of these games can still be played at Super Nostalgia Zone, made by Clonetrooper1019.

In late 2012, the place "City" was renamed to the location of the Roblox Game Conference as a promotion.
The ROBLOX account is known to own a copy of the vast majority of accessories and gears ever released to the Catalog. In Limited items, ROBLOX has a value of 42 million RAP which places it at the #1 spot for collective Recent Average Price. ROBLOX is valued at more than twice the collective RAP of all its items according to fan sites, and it is said that the account will hit a value of R$100,000,000 in a few years due to continued creation of new Limited items.
