Today marks a very historical move for the Roblox Catalog … UGC creators can now create items under the “Limited” category!
In the official announcement from Roblox on the DevForum, here’s the quote stating that, beginning today, UGC creators will be able to create Limited items.
We are developing more ways for creators to innovate and earn as we build towards our vision of a community-driven Marketplace . Adding scarcity to our Marketplace is a key element of creating healthy marketplace dynamics that benefit creators, buyers, and sellers alike. That’s why, starting today, we are giving creators in our UGC Program the ability to create Limiteds.
As I’m sure you know, this means a lot of good can be done … but it comes with a risk. Personally I believe Roblox must tread very, very carefully because there are a lot of people out there who love to do nothing but make attempts to ruin the Roblox Catalog.
However, at the same time, this means that Roblox Limiteds have a good chance of exploding in popularity, with lots more trading going around, more than ever. So this can be a really great thing for the Roblox economy.
What do you make of this, and do you believe this is the right path forward for Roblox and UGC creators? Looking forward to what you have to say!
