I can't be the only one this is happening to.
There are several bots, all named "ClickMe" followed by gibberish, that keep spamming my FRs. It's clear they're not actual people because 19 people all named the exact same thing with some variance asking to be my friend all at the same time is pretty unbelievable.
Recently, reCaptcha was added to the site for certain features, and I think now's the time we add it to FRs.
I just got another batch. Should I post specific usernames so they know which are bots?
i don't know how we're going to implement this into the actual servers, but i guess bots don't add you in game, do they. lol.
@dakk why don't you just set it to people have to follow you to message you, bots will no longer appear.

Support, same problem
Dude we're talking about bots here, not real people. ReCaptcha will work.
As for inboxes, there are fix for it in the settings.
Good idea, but ROBLOX doesn't give a crap about their community. I support, but ROBLOX doesn't.
Yeah I wish staff would read suggestion forums :( too bad they only collect suggestion from media
there is a recaptcha
after you sign up 1+ accounts on the same IP in a hour
so the bots probably change ip
ive tried it
also the bots cant be created
roblox make it so the username isnt appropriate
add reCAPTCHA EVERYWHERE.
Add ReCAPTCHA to sending friend requests. To sending messages. To posting comments. To posting threads on the forums.
ReCaptcha is the obvious solution to all the bots running rampant but ROBLOX runs around like a chicken with it's head cut off trying to fix the problem by making it worse.
reCaptcha IS BROKE!The whole point of it is to stop robots from logging in to accounts and making them. Well now we have 5% of roblox players that are click me/don't click me bots, and all of them have gotten past the point of rC. All it is good for is annoying me when I try to log in my account, just remove it you stupid admins and do something about your site for once.
all of you who are saying "MUH RECAPTCHA DUN WERK!!!!" are blind to the fact that the spam accounts are always created from new IPs to bypass the recaptcha on the signup page
as stated earlier the recaptcha doesn't appear until after you make an account on that IP.
