Application Centers

TBSFirstApp

Spoiler for the new application UI.

In April 2017, TBS was changed from an Anti Exploit service to an application center service. Ranking bots were also created around this time.

Anti Exploit

TBSAE

TBS - Anti Exploit Protection

Prior to being an application center service, Terabyte Services was built around the idea of anti exploit. Games with TBS installed would have the ability to call a TBS official to the server if someone was exploiting. The TBS employee would have tools and commands to take care of the exploiter. They also had a debotting service, which removed scams from group walls.

Terabyte Advertising

TBAInfo

Terabyte Advertising is a paired group with Terabyte Services that provides in-game advertising. Developers who put advertisements in their game receive 30 Robux every 1000 views through the payout feature on the website. 100 Robux must be accumulated in order to cash out, and the user must be in the terabyte services group. Advertisements could also be purchased at a rate of 50 Robux for 500 views, and the cap was 450 Robux for 4500 views. Ads would be purchased at the Advertising Central game.

Group Deletion

On September 8, 2017, the TBS group was deleted due to the ability to purchase plans via Robux, as well as SquirrelByte being warned for "scamming". This led to issues with payment for plans and a complaint being created.

Terabyte Office

Terabyte Office is an interview system created and owned by the developers of Terabyte Service. The building features 10 offices with interviews ran by bots. The game owner would connect the game to an application center created on the website and when the interview was started, bots would host interviews with players. When the interview was concluded, the player's answers would be sent to the website like an application. The office was first announced on August 9, 2018, when it was used for TBS Customer Support applications.

On August 16, anyone who joined the office could get a 10-minute demo. This option was removed on September 5, when users could purchase the office for 2 hours for 129 Robux. Two days later, the price was dropped to 99 Robux. Then, on October 19, the office was updated to have invitation codes, and the purchasing was changed to 99 Robux for a lifetime server with one code.
