[edit] FAQ

What is this?
This is a bug log designed to help admins pinpoint bugs, and easily recreate the reported bugs. This log will be user created, but only approved by the wiki staff.
How do I report a bug?
You may post about your bug on this group. Wiki writers often read the wall and your bug is likely to be noticed by one of them.
What can't I report?
You may not report exploits, these should be sent to an admin. Sharing exploits will get you banned.
What if I cannot reproduce the bug?
If the reported bug is not reproducible, then it is not a bug.
What if the bug needs a visual representation?
If you can state how to reproduce the bug in detail, the wiki staff can add graphic image to display the bug.
I found a bug, but it is only reproducible on gametest and sitetest. Can I report it here?
No. Gametest bugs can be reported on the Game Test forum and sitetest bugs can be reported on the Site Test forum. This bug log is only for the current stable version of ROBLOX.
One of these bugs was corrected by the admins, what should I do?
Tell the wiki writers on the wiki group's wall so one of them can remove it from this list.
I am a wiki writer, how do I add a bug to the log?
Use the {{BugReport}} template and place your bug under the correct header. You can see the documentation of the {{BugReport}} template on its own page.

Crashes in Studio on Windows XP

Crashes in Studio on Windows XP
Reported: 2012-05-22
A reproducible crash on XP. Open one .rbxl file. Now open a second. Studio crashes.

Late/No part position update.

Late/No part position update.
Reported: 2012-02-12
GAMEBUG - No update.jpeg
Roblox is able to detect the part's change in position, but does not update the part's buffered image.

(This is experienced continuously when changing the C0 or C1 of a weld every frame)

A possible cause of this is that unanchored parts as though they're anchored when they aren't moving, until they touch or stop touching another part. This makes it possible for ROBLOX to run at a decent speed with thousands of unanchored parts in the game, but weld orientation updates are not detected, and the part's rendered position will not change until it's hit or the part it's attached to moves.

Reported: 2012-02-13
Pressing the reset button will prevent event connections from connecting. (they disconnect on creation)

Scripts tend to revert

Scripts tend to revert
Reported: 2012-04-13
If you click the red back button after running a simulation, and open a script within a few seconds, any changes done to the script will be undone when you close the script tab. This should be fixable by changing the priorities of the red back button to make script reverting the first thing to happen.

Roblox Launcher Plugin for Google Chrome creates thousands upon thousands of log files

Roblox Launcher Plugin for Google Chrome creates thousands upon thousands of log files
Reported: 2012-05-22
The Roblox Launcher plugin (tested only on chrome) creates log files in a temporary directory at a ludicrous rate, which can slow down the computers of users significantly, since other programs find it harder to allocate temporary storage. These files are created even while browsing the roblox forums.

Parental Links.png
In the parental controls, on the page to manage a specific user, there is an user profile link. That links points to the user profile, which was deleted, and therefore redirects to an error page. Solution: Removing the link from the list.

On the blog, if you scroll down a little with the scroll bar (the scroll wheel scrolls by too much), you will notice that the two banners are overlapping, which looks a little ugly.

On the profile page of any user with the bricksmith badge, if you look at its icon, you will notice it looks ugly because it is too large.
