Repeated instances of a player being warned or banned can increase the likelihood of their next punishment being an account deletion (also referred to as a termination). 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, 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 banned from a specific game is immediately kicked from the server. 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.
Users who violate Roblox's Terms of Service will be given one of these reprimands. They range from a stern reminder (which were replaced by warnings) to follow Roblox's guidelines to have IP permanently blocked from the Roblox website forever.

These are common reasons as to why a player may be banned from Roblox:
- Inappropriate Content
- Adult Content
- Terroristic Advertising
- Disputed Charge
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).
- 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).
If an account is banned or terminated and has an active subscription to a VIP 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).
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.
On October 17, 2018, thousands of accounts received a termination for "Roblox ToS Violation". Almost the majority of users who were deleted were innocent, including developers and major people with 500K+ RAP (Recent Average Price). All the terminations were given out at 4:51:49 PM.
Botters also have been terminated by this incident, therefore showing that Roblox does not support scams.
If you type "https://www.roblox.com/Membership/NotApproved.aspx" (the page you will always be redirected to when ban/warning is in effect), it will for some reason show your last moderation action that you received. It is unknown if this trick will put anything on your moderation history, but it's highly unlikely it does. This also will not ban/warn you, so going to another Roblox website domain will not redirect you back to the page. The page is a little glitchy if it's a moderation action that was given before the Roblox font change/dark theme update.
Doing this without having any moderation history on your account will instantly redirect you to the default Roblox home page.
Appeals & Membership
Users are encouraged to appeal a moderation action through an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
Some users believe that users who purchase a premium membership are more likely to have a ban appealed and less likely to get banned. most likely because of how said users paid Roblox directly and can give refunds if banned.Players with 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.
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 rumored that players have been banned after their "parent" emailed The Roblox Corporation asking for their "child's account" to be closed.Some users claim to have been banned for no logical reason. A rumor that spread throughout 2011–2013 noted that moderator MSE6 (now scandal) bans users for no reason, such as for being Christian. 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.
- When players receive a 14-day ban, the player's account will not be deleted, even if the moderator note states otherwise.
- Another word for this ban is "Account Suspension", as you can read in the begin section of this page too.
- In 2018, thousands of players were terminated for no reason. The moderator note was unauthorized charges and "Roblox ToS Violation". Many people suspect that the reason was that Roblox's moderation bot glitched and started terminating innocent players. This happened twice: The first termination wave happened on the Fourth of July. Second time was somewhere in the second half of 2018.
