We are embarking on a massive program to make the ads on ROBLOX more fun! We’re not talking about the player-made advertising. That stuff is great!
In keeping with the spirit of ROBLOX being “user created”, our new idea is to have the outside ads on ROBLOX be “user suggested”. To help us get “funner” ads we need to know what you really like. We received a lot of good replies in your survey answers (the one about your favorite gift) but we want to expand the list of “things you like” to a broad range of categories – and we want your answers in the format of pictures like this!
So here’s what we want you to do.
2. Get your family or friend to take a photo of you holding the sign and one thing in your hand that you love. Don’t show your face! (either crop your face in the picture, wear a mask, or black-out your face).
3. Email the photo to us at [Address removed. The event is over as of Jan 18, 2008 at midnight Pacific time. Sorry if you missed it. Thanks to those who entered. ]The subject of the email must be your ROBLOX username. ONLY YOUR ROBLOX USERNAME in the subject. It has to be that way. The photo file should be a jpg, gif, or png. No links to hosting sites.
The other thing you are holding should be something you would like to see advertised on ROBLOX! Here are some sample category ideas…
Everyone who sends a photo of themselves an item and holding a sign will get the prize. We need the username as the subject of the email or it won’t work.
Some of the photos will be shown on the News, but not every one. We will be selecting some of the funniest and most interesting photos to give extra mention and a special prize to. Remember, they must show an advertisable item.
The event will go from now until we get 400 good images. Enter early if you want to get the prize. We reserve the decision to stop the event if we get too many entries to process. The first set of hats will go out on Friday Jan 16 and the final set will go out by the end of the month.
What if you don’t have a camera?
Try a camera phone or some other way to take a pic. Sorry it’s a limitation.
What if you don’t have email?
Again, sorry this is a limitation. Get your parents’ permission to use email for this.
What if you don’t have a printer?
Draw out the sign on a piece of paper and hold that. We have to be able to read the sign.
Can you put something together in a paint program, ROBLOX images, or grab photos from the Internet?
No. This has to be a photo of a real live person holding the sign and an item.
Will everyone get a prize?
Yes. Everyone who submits a valid photo before we close the event and has the username as the email subject will get the prize.
Privacy small print:
Do not have your face in the photo. No faces will be shown on the News. No usernames will be linked with photos on the News. Your email address will not be saved past the end of the event and we will not use it for any other purpose than to reply about the event. Get your parents’ permission to use email if you are 13 or under. Do not upload your photo to ROBLOX as a t-shirt or decal.
Talk about it on the forums!
