Design-Blueprint

Get Your Article Published on the ROBLOX Blog

We’ve been upping the interaction between ourselves and our readers by cultivating articles that encourage collaboration and discussion. We’re pushing that envelope even further with a new, soon-to-be-launched series, where ROBLOX users have the chance to write bylined articles for the blog!

With our Spotlight articles, we focus on users who have built amazing places and games. Our newly-formed Crossfire series gives successful ROBLOX game developers a chance talk about the design and structure of their respective games (we’ve got an exciting edition coming in the near future). This new series will be written by ROBLOX users, and each entry will describe the process of developing a very specific and/or technical aspect of a game, place or model. You can pitch your article idea today by completing this form.

Your topic can be anything, but unique and focused ideas stand a much better chance of making the cut. Here are some examples:

  • Implementing a map in a survival game
  • Using ray casting to simulate physically realistic projectiles
  • Creating a custom weapon reload animation

It’s pretty open-ended–these are just ideas based off games we’ve recently played on ROBLOX. Your goal should be to establish your creative prowess and help other ROBLOX builders who’d like to implement similar features.

Here’s what to do: first, follow this link, which will take you to an application form. In addition to submitting basic information, you’ll need to give us a detailed description of your work and why it will be useful for ROBLOX blog readers.

If selected, you’ll get to craft your very own article where you can discuss your creation in detail–where the inspiration came from, how you implemented it, and what the benefits are. We’ll help you fine-tune the piece and provide you with assets to make a clean and informative article. This is your chance to become a published author, and to inspire other users to get out there and build.

So let’s see what you’ve got! Start by filling out your application here.

      man roblox your quality has gone down in a lot of stuff like games and clothes and whats up with having to be BC all the time to get some of the clothes and to play some games for god-sake!!

    Well I wrote about The Seasonal Lake,which is in its early stages. It is currently in winter season so it is frozen.It will be a bit like The Wind and Countryside.

    Maybe at some point you’ll open up a contest where we can choose to do any kind of article? Such as interviews, how things work in ROBLOX, current goings on, etc.
    Many ROBLOXians aren’t builders, but are good writers.

  3. DatPlayerWhoIsSickOfRobloxShennanigans!

    Would be lovely is ROBLOX could focus on the dynamic lighting that they got rid of Bevels for.

  4. banjo2

    I would make one about anti-gravity but I am not a scripter and I have NEVER written/typed an article.

  5. samos2

    I’d definitely go for it! If it didn’t have to be technical. I was thinking of a place ideas article. That would help ROBLOX builders!

  6. GotHxd (iamarobloxfan)

    I would rather try to get my GAMES on here, because I can’t really write good articles >_<

      No my friend! I quote, “Your topic can be anything, but unique and focused ideas stand a much better chance of making the cut. Here are some examples”, by Alan Fackler.

    I just completed the survey, even if I’m not featured, I’m eager to see the article chosen nevertheless. Maybe I’ll be disqualified for having exactly 300 words in my summary.

  8. Brawldude2

    I would rather publish an article mentioning Dynamic Lighting (which is coming out soon :D) I got 2 videos of me testing it on my alternate YouTube account

    1. hiccup111

      I had a couple of runs on my on dynamic lighting system too.

      No videos, but if you’d like to see my work, please visit this account, hiccup116.

      It may be a little buggy, and slow, but it works ^^

      Thanks.

  9. Retalisize

    Does this have to be about a game/place in development, or can it be about a clan/group that you are developing, and mainly, on how to successfully start up a clan?

  10. MahPizzaIsHere

    I sent in a story about a unique approach to making detailed maps for FPS games. I hope you consider it!

  11. Gaming

    Does it really have to be something you’ve done? I mean reviewing the unknown work of forgotten or “unknown” ROBLOXians should also be doable. I think.

    Wow, what an amazing oppurtunity. If I don’t win the bloxy, I can at least make my nerdy writing skills worthwhile!
