Petition to Roblox Corporation

Allow ROBLOX Experimental Games to be playable

WHY I STARTED THIS Recently, ROBLOX made changes to their website, now disallowing users 13+ or not to play experimental games. They claim that this accomplishes the following goals: Enhancing the safety of our community Putting an emphasis on secure development earlier in the learning process of developing Roblox games Reducing the risk of undesirable changes being made to your games without your permission This however causes problems; Old games of developers that are inactive will now die. FE is a different way of scripting, and more complicated to approach than Experimental Scripting. Where this comes in is the popular Experimental Mode games, where the creator and/or developers are unable to do FE scripts. Can kill developers with big potential. This change will kill a lot of games and will eventually get rid of developers. I like to make games, and GUIs. But, this has currently really killed my games, since i cannot do FE scripting then their quality and function with the GUIs has all gone down the drain and i'm sure this has happened to other developers too. And clearly, nobody seems to like it. See the Twitter post here EXPANDING ON 'SAFETY' Safety in both modes vary. But, exploiters cannot be stopped with FE. This only prevents commands from replicating, and exploiters can still teleport and noclip through walls, and when this is used in games like Prison Life, it will destroy the experience for everyone.  WHAT WE HOPE TO ACHIEVE We hope for players to be able to play Experimental Games again or at least more understandable, detailed and easily accessible help for developers to understand and script in Filtering Enabled.

Better broadband speeds for Barkleys Hill, Bristol and environs

October Update: We have the quote and are now fundraising for the upgrade click here to donate We would like to petition the main broadband suppliers (BT, Sky, Virgin) to improve the substandard internet connection on Barkleys Hill and the neighbouring streets of Little Parr Close, Baileys Mead Road and The Chine. Superfast broadband is defined as a connection with download speeds of 24Mb or above. Broadband under 2Mb is considered to be slow enough to apply for a government grant.We have one of slowest internet connections in Bristol with download speeds of 2Mb to 5Mb and yet many of the surrounding roads in the area get download speeds of 22Mb to 40Mb. Our local exchange, Fishponds New (SSFIS), is enabled for Openreach FTTC and should be able to provide a better speed however the broadband suppliers need some additional convincing that it is financially worth their while to upgrade the connection. I am hoping that with this petition and completing the 'register your interest' links will help with this. Barkleys Hill is a family area and the slow speeds are surely putting a strain on households with the increase in mobile devices, streaming TV shows and sharing photos. Any resident trying to run a home business would struggle to keep an effective connection with the current speed levels. We would therefore urge residents and local businesses to push suppliers to take action to enforcing superfast broadband in the area to enable homes and offices to maximise their internet experience and to remove the current limitations and difficulties they face with lower upload speeds. Please check the website for updates and how you can help:https://sites.google.com/site/barkleysbroadband I would urge all signees to register their interest directly as this will also make a big impact: BT: http://www.productsandservices.bt.com/products/speed-checker/Virgin: http://www.virginmedia.com/cablemystreet/Sky: https://fibre.sky.com/shop/broadband-talk/broadband-options/sky-fibre-broadband/
