Alright, I know I'm not the only one who wants this new safe-chat thing gone. It is horrible! They hashtag all of the innocent words! And anyway, there should be 14- have hashtags if they say bad words or if anybody else does. Then 14+ should be able to say whatever they would like to. ROBLOX has gone way too far with this and it needs to be fixed. Reply back to this forum if you agree!

Unlimited speech is too far for a kiddie game. No support, but otherwise support that they've taken it too far (whitelist over blacklist).
I don't really mean whatever they want. You shouldn't be allowed to say anything racist. But you should be allowed to at least cuss.
ROBLOX has fixed over 20 problems with the safe-chat. Its just on-site chat that needs to be fixed. Don't like it? Use skype and other such things, like discord.
No support, this is a kid's game, not Skype. Be thankful they're not Wizard 101 where every single word has to be pre-approved.
Well, maybe not completely removed but improved. We have to remember ROBLOX is and has always been advertised as a kids' sight.

Just hashtag all the bad words and if the words are spelled wrong then why would you hashtag it. I don't think they should remove it but they should make it better.
Everyone swear in word 5 to 100 like i know its bad but every human in world swears.

You just want it gone so you can see what your 13- "patients" or "coworkers" can say at you hospital roleplay?
Like 9 out of 10 is full of Roblox is full kids under the age to disable Safe-Chat anyways other than them lying about their ages.
You have done the correct thing by making a fourm to express how you feel about certain things. However, in my opinion I believe that the hashtags are a good idea to decrease the amount of online bullying. I have got in contact with Roblox about this issue and they have already said this hashtag scenario is being sorted but you will see more hashtags throughout this month because Roblox it trying to make it better for all Robloxians.
Support. ROBLOX has become far too stringent with the usage of the chat, Although I have remarked that more words are blocked for users under the age of 13, things like ######### first names, numbers, and serpveral common woreds are blocked. ROBLOX treats these as if they were curse words, due to pressure from concerned parents and parenting magazines. They do not seem to realize that a lot of parenting magazines often blame everything except for their children for their problems. So yes, support. ROBLOX needs to take care of this.
See what I mean? The word for a last name was blocked. Even my username is blocked because of the first three letters.
Half support, every word they remove have reasons.
Numbers: To prevent younger children saying... (Filtered)
Swear Words: Well, you know why,
Others: Could help criminals get to young children.
But support, where they go with it is still too far. But even some parents do not agree with it.
I think parents should be allowed to use the settings to change what their child can say.
And worst of all, big groups such as hotels find a word that safe chat filters. Then make everyone say it. Then kick the safe chatters. This is a kids game.
