It’s time for another video contest! Yay! It would be great to highlight some ROBLOX Tutorial videos. We really like it when the users try to help each other. For this contest we want you to make a tutorial video of how to do or create something in ROBLOX.

Here are some example videos. Your contest entries would be shorter than these, but just as awesome.

What do to:

Make a short (60 second) tutorial to explain how to do something on ROBLOX or in ROBLOX Studio. A tutorial would show the exact steps of how to make or create something. As shown in the examples above, the tutorial doesn’t need music or action. You can record yourself talking and explaining the steps, or use captions to explain the steps. Show us what a good helper you are!

Here is how to enter:

  1. Post your Tutorial to YouTube

  2. Put your ROBLOX username in the description blurb.
    Can teams enter? No. Only the video creator is entered.

  3. Add the tag "ROBLOX Tutorial August 2009" in the video description area

  4. Enter your username and video link on the Entry Form

Here are the rules for the tutorials format. Videos that break these rules will not win.

  • Videos must be newly uploaded (from the start of the contest). If you made a good tutorial before just re-upload it.

  • Video must be at most 60 seconds long including the credits time

  • Credits are at the end of the video, not the beginning

  • Does not show any scamming, hacking, exploiting or rule-breaking

  • Username of the video creator is shown in the video credits
