Why do you play ROBLOX? 
Back in 2008 one of my friends, Pieperson2222, told me about this “cool website that you can build with virtual blocks,” and sent me a link to ROBLOX. When I saw what ROBLOX really was I fell in love with it. Back then I was a noob, using only free models and Build mode. When I discovered ROBLOX Studio, that was really when I began making games and learning to script. I learned that I had a passion for programming and that kept me hooked ever since.

What is your favorite thing on ROBLOX?
Scripting. I loved it ever since I made my first lava script. It’s really interesting to see all the cool things you can do with scripting, like making your own ROBLOX Studio plugins. I found it fast to learn and flexible. It can be a gateway to learning other programming languages, so maybe it will guide you to making your own programs and websites someday.

What do you want your fellow ROBLOXians to know about you?
I am a video game and web developer. I enjoy making video games. Hopefully, as I continue to learn programming languages like Java, C#, and ASP.NET, my games and websites will get better and gain more popularity. My dream is to one day work in a video game company, like ROBLOX or Electronic Arts. If it wasn’t for ROBLOX, I probably would not have started programming!

Do you have any advice for noobs?
Learn to script. Really, it opens up lots of new things and games you can
make on ROBLOX. It’s fast and easy to learn, and once you know the basics, the rest is a breeze. If your games are well scripted, it will likely gains lots of popularity and support. Learning how to program will also give you a great opportunity to work in the booming video game industry.

Tell us something cool that happened to you recently on ROBLOX.
Just recently, my game Epic Mining 2 reached a million place visits! It
was my goal to get a million visits in a year, and I did it in only 9 months! I want to say thank you to everyone who played my games and supported me!
