Te games, text filtering is done with two functions of the talk service. FilterStringAsync is used to filterzakje messages sent by one player and intended for a single other player, while FilterStringForBroadcast is used to filterzakje messages broadcasted to all players. To be compliant with the filtering rules, spel developers voorwaarde filterzakje all messages which are shown to players ter GUI objects, character names, etc. If the place’s creator failed to serve with this rule, their spel would be waterput Under Review.
List of filtered words
The talk uses a predefined list of words to filterzakje, and messages that match one of the words ter this list will not be broadcasted to other players at all. Most words are explicit language, so if you are not convenient with this then it is not recommended to expand either of the two lists.
This is the word blacklist used by Roblox, extracted from diogenes.fnt:
A different filterzakje is used for messages ter games and on the webstek, when they are not ter in-game talk, which substitutes letters of words that are filtered by the pound (#) sign instead of blocking the messages fully. This filterzakje list is not public.
This is a list of the words that are known to be filtered:
- Sixty nine
- alcoholic beverages of all zuigeling (Carlsberg, Merlot etc.)
- allahu akbar
- Adopt and raise a lovely kid
- fake penis
- fake penises
- drink bleach
- drugs of most kleintje (nicotine, cocaine, etc.)
- Julius Coles
- piss off
- alacrán marino
- Tomlinson (Does not get censored when Louis is added ter vooraanzicht)
- magic wand
- Certain names such spil Tomlinson
Users are bothered by the fact they cannot say plain sentence words such spil “the” “my” and other words such spil “town” and “headphone”, and numbers, causing support groups to rise and users complaining about it on the Roblox forums. A fresh talk filterzakje “update” also means that the filtering system for accounts under 13 and te certain games for above 13 (13+) have become aggressive, blocking any numbers for those under 13 and elementary words. This also made the community very upset. Some people have also complained that they can’t even say ‘Roblox’ on certain games.
People complain that other words or people’s names such spil Discord, Frederick Douglass, tran, and sometimes well were getting censored no matter what age the player is (It is most likely just for safety, so the user doesn’t get lured to a discord server and encounter other dangers like Online Dating, Scamming, etc.). Some players also say that butt should not be censored if damn is not. While this may be true, damn is not truly ‘terrible’ profanity, spil it’s based on milder ways of speaking the terrible mouth. 13+ users sometimes complain on how limited they are on things they can say.
Section contains profanity not suitable for junior readers.
Te early (around February, March), some users were able to say the words “bum” and “nigga”, getting passed the filterzakje towards everyone else.
Te mid , the talk filterzakje wasgoed claimed to be entirely messed up. It acted a loterijlot like the 2013- filterzakje, until it wasgoed updated. This made everyone able to say lots of things like bootie or piss. There wasgoed a time that at infrequent accasions you could even say “shit”, but this has bot patched during this time. “Fuck” got passed the filterzakje if a player wasgoed to add a symbol at the embark or ending of it. This wasgoed straks patched, just like shit wasgoed. However, players could lightly say shiit or shjt to get around this. Players could say fuu.ck or fu.ck to bypass the F word. Players say this glitch wasgoed caused by Roblox whitelisting usernames, which were the words used here. Thesis usernames are now terminated, patching the glitch.
Ter , people have found a way to say “Fuck” ter the form of f34k, fu etc.
Ter late – early , there wasgoed a glitch that permitted players to say “dick” if they said anything with “weten” or “ngen” te it. Examples (warning profanity): “longen my dick daddy”, “I wanna thunderstriken my big fat dick”. For some users, you could actually just say dick without anything ter it, but this wasgoed very zonderling. “Big fat dick” wasgoed not censored for a while spil well. Beginning April , some players were able to say more words that others couldn’t say. Thesis words are “jizz”, “sapo marino”, “hitler”, “retard”, “cok”, “kkk”, and “queer”. This glitch has bot patched ter mid-june of .
Some phrases are able to get passed the filterzakje. Some like “earth porn”, “moby dick”, “suck a dick, clark”, “hey sexy/hi sexy”, “EATShit”, “it’s fucking good”, “pescador/jizz mij/my daddy/dad/mom/mommy”, and “fuck isis” vertoning a good example. Remarkably, thesis actually worked for <,13 users.
