Ambassador Program: Paradox of Fail

April 23, 2009 at 7:16 am | Posted in Thought | 10 Comments

Hi again.
The ambassador program, I was studiying this for a good amount of time. However, I can tell that the program is an absolute fail.

First of all, this encourages spam. Real, Bad, and Horrible. That’s the spam. You might think this can’t be so bad. It IS.
– Popular blogs get hit hard… with Spam comments. Even Askimet Spam Protect reconizes the spam!
– Some popular forums (most of them, actually), do not tolerate Advertising, even in the signatures. The player of Roblox will advertize for that badge. He will get banned and his sig deleted.

2nd, there is no way an intelligent person would click that link. No way. What does this give? More noobs.
If they wanted to attract more, THIS is what they should say:
“ROBLOX: A Free Building Game with Physics. Create your world. Create your Blox.”
I mean. That is SO more attractive than that cheesy line they put. But you know what’s the worse? If you click the “check out what I have been building lately!” part (I saw the Destination link.), the user will get nothing. Nothing. Yes, NOTHING. Also, more people want to check the player’s creation first before playing the game. Everyone knows that. And the user won’t get the 2 tixs they wanted.

This part, concerns more the Fansite Kit. You remember the blogroll? You remember when they deleted it? It was for this “COPPA” thing. So it was, blogs weren’t appreciated by Roblox anymore…
…but now? THEY ARE ENCOURAGING BLOGS! And they still have this thing with COPPA. Eventually, they’ll go feature more blogs and leave the blogs that started it all, into dust. At least, take our site as examples for the Kit. (Odd, you guys don’t recommend WordPress in your Fansite Kit…).

Last thing, the present. Look in the recently updated hats. In order to get it, you gotta “POST AS MANY LINKS BY FRIDAY!!!!!!!”.



…No way. I am disgusted. This… is EXACTLY this in “another” way:
” POST THIS ON 83 HATS, 2 DECALS, AND 7 SHIRTS TO GET 999999999999 TIXS AND 777777777 ROBUX! TELAMON TOULD ME IT’S TRUE!!!!!!!;;;;!!!! ”

  1. I play ROBLOX and my account name is pumkinhead13 in ROBLOX, a addictive multiplayer universe

  2. Not that bad because some noobs might not know how to use HTML 😮

  3. It is not soo bad coz they say it will be allowed to have only 1 link per domian…

    But i am worried coz there are many noobs …
    they can destroy any site by posting a link

    (There are many noobs and more will come…)

    It is hard to belive that roblox can fix this…

  4. At first, I was all for it. But after seeing all of the TOTALLY unnecasary spam riddeling decent websites, I’m starting to wonder what Roblox was trying to do in the first place. As of yet it’s getting a very bad name… that’s for sure.

  5. good points. All of them. But ROBLOX is getting desperate….. oh well. A new user is made every 8 seconds!

  6. Live with it.
    ROBLOX encourages to advertise everywhere to get famous.

  7. Roblox is losing creativity. Guess I should just quit. LIKE RIGHT NOW

  8. its a pretty good idea but people take advantage of it. I agree with this article

  9. great now now theres a chance that noobs will take over games

  10. You need to stop complaining. The program is a good idea, you can only post that link on sites which allow html for a reason, forums and comments don’t allow most html. They could have just told you to link to a page anyway you wanted.
