John James Shedletsky, III[1], formerly known as Telamon, is a famous user who was the former Creative Director at Roblox from 2006 until 2014.[2] He was the fourth engineer hired at Roblox.[3] He resigned from his full-time position in May 2014 in order to pursue establishing a new business venture, although he continues to work on an as-needed basis with the corporation.[4] While employed at Roblox, he created games such as Nuke the Whales and Sword Fight on the Heights IV, and he created the LOL group. He has also patented some systems which have since been unique to Roblox. Shedletsky has a YouTube channel which is known for uploading many trailers of Roblox during its early years. Nowadays, Shedletsky is mainly active on Twitter and returns to the site from time to time. He is also known to have two alternate accounts that have a vast trove of limited items stored on them; EarlGrey and SonOfSevenless.

Outside of Roblox, John is married to the administrator known as BrightEyes. He graduated from Stanford University in 2006 with a bachelor's and master's degree in computer science with additional focuses on biology and classical literature. His interests include computer graphics, machine vision, game theory, game design, graphic design, oil painting, bio simulations, and classical literature.

ID swap with Telamon

Prior to the username change feature being released, John changed his name by switching the user IDs between Shedletsky and Telamon. By doing this, he was able to keep all of Telamon's earned assets and also took his user ID. When asked about the name change, he tweeted that he did so because he outgrew his previous name.[5]

April Fools' Jokes

On April Fools' Day of 2007, John made an announcement on the blog announcing that Google purchased Roblox and had renamed the game to Gooblox[6]. Later in the day, David Baszucki (also known as Builderman) released another blog post that explained the April Fools joke and that the Gooblox domain was purchased by Google.[7]. Users who enter the URL for Gooblox will be redirected to the Roblox website.

In 2010, his Administrator badge was removed for a short period of time as a part of a second April Fools joke. After this, many people speculated that Shedletsky was fired. However, this was not the case and he later regained the Administrator badge.
