Roblox (formerly ROBLOX) is an automated staff-ran account that shares its name with the platform, primarily used to publish items to the avatar shop. When Roblox commissioned Beta stage from Alpha stage and launched officially, Roblox's account creation date, including all others created before 2006, was subsequently changed to February 2006 due to database changes. It used to have a fully-capitalized username but it was renamed to "Roblox" on May 13, 2021, presumably due to the early-2017 change of Roblox's branding. The account used to have Turbo Builders Club, which was changed to Outrageous Builders Club in 2013, and finally to Premium in 2019. The account's current ID is 1[note 1].
The Roblox 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.
The Roblox account hosted a variety of games up to c. September 12th, 2017, with the number of public games having slowly diminished for some time prior until all of the account's games—except for Crossroads—were made private on the aforementioned date. Some of the now-private games can still be played at Super Nostalgia Zone, a game by CloneTrooper1019. Games owned by the Roblox account include:
- Crossroads (now known as Classic: Crossroads)
- Building With Friends
- ROBLOX's Skate Park
- Happy Home in Robloxia!
- Glass Houses
- Rocket Arena
- Chaos Canyon (now known as Classic: Chaos Canyon)

From its creation up until June 17th of 2007, the Roblox account had no friends. On August 8th, 2007 to August 23rd, 2009 (or possibly further), the account auto-accepted friend requests. The friend list of the account was eventually wiped on or before January 7th, 2010.
On August 5th, 2015, Two users, Txnqo and OVOTango (presumably the same person), became Roblox's friends. Txnqo was removed a day later, with OVOTango being removed either on or before the 29th. It's suspected that Tango had either hacked their way onto the friend's list, or wished to be on it via the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Roblox's inventory was publicly viewable until c. March 5th, 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 private inventory feature was made available to all players 3 years later originally only being available to the Roblox account.
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 approximately 53,000,000 collective RAP and is valued at more than twice this amount according to fan sites.
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 wore the True Blue Hair. Female guests, using the look from BettyBloxxer wore the Pinktastic Hair. Ungendered Guests (those who don't pick a gender or play on iOS devices), using the look from DefaultGuest wore 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.
Last Active Dates
In February 2016, ROBLOX was updating their avatar and games, although it said last online in 2006. Later, ROBLOX updated Crossroads on September 26th 2017. According to Roblox's APIs, ROBLOX was last online in September 2017. However, in 2021, the last online date was changed back to 2006.
- It can be seen that David Baszucki's account originally had the ID of 1 in 2006.
- Roblox's second last avatar seems to be a variation of the Roblox avatar in the Support page.
- Although Roblox has ID 1, "Admin" is believed to be the actual first account to have been made on Roblox, but Admin was eventually moved to ID 18 before being terminated.
- Named City (the current name of the original upload of the game by killernathan) until late 2012, when the game was renamed to the location and date of the ROBLOX Game Conference 2012 event as a promotion.
