Be Our Guest; Buy Our ROBUX

September 26, 2008

by John Shedletsky


We’ve got two big features to announce in this release: guest mode and the ability to purchase ROBUX!

Guest Mode

Some people want to try out ROBLOX to see if it’s any good before they take the time to make an account. A lot of game websites force you to create an account before you can even play their games to see if they are worth your time.


We think anyone who gets in-game and plays ROBLOX for 10 minutes is probably going to want to create a full account (especially since it is free), in order to get the benefits of membership, such as having your own place, collecting the daily login bonus, and being able to customize the look of their ROBLOXian.


Guest mode players appear in-game with the name "Guest ####". They’re just like normal users, except they can only use Super Safe chat and their stats don’t get logged from game to game. We don’t log stats because Guest users don’t have a "My ROBLOX" page to display them on…


We’ve heard stories of people buying Builders Club on four accounts, just so they can get more ROBUX. We’re making things easier now for those people by allowing players to purchase ROBUX directly from the ROBLOX Central Bank.


You do not need to be in Builders Club to buy ROBUX. However, Builders Club members get advantages when buying ROBUX: they have the option of buying smaller amounts, and they get a better rate.

Buying Builders Club is still a great way to get ROBUX, through the 15 R$ daily allowance that BC members receive (along with other benefits). But now people who want their cash right away have another choice.


8 out of 10 economists we surveyed expect that the ROBUK will rise strongly against the dollar in the near term, making it an excellent inflation hedge in these troubled financial times!
