Sorts are collections of experiences that visitors see when they browse Roblox, helping them find what they’re looking for.

While some sorts are generated automatically, others are nominated and curated by the community. This article outlines how to qualify and how to nominate an experience to be featured.

Learn & Explore

The Learn & Explore sort highlights experiences that let people learn in an engaging way. To see frequently asked questions about this sort, see our announcement on the DevForums.


  • The experience explores a subject matter (science, history, etc) or has educational value that is clear to an educator.
  • No overly aggressive or pay-to-win monetization strategies. Monetization should not detract from learning or gameplay.
  • All experiences should be appropriate for a classroom for students of all ages (even if the subject matter is advanced). We will be highly critical of content such as violence.
  • Applicants (and their teams) must have a clean moderation check.
  • Experience should have a “Like” ratio above 50% and maintain at least 15 daily active users.

Frequently Asked Questions

In general, the experience should have a consistent/active visitor base and be well-liked by the community. Please refer to the criteria above for each sort's requirements.

You'll receive a direct message on the Developer Forum if the experience has been approved. This usually happens within 2 weeks of the submission, but it may take up to 4 weeks if submission volume is high.

No, but please wait at least 2 weeks before re-submitting. If you haven't received a decision after 2+ weeks, you're free to apply again — however, you should review the criteria carefully and make sure the submission applies. For example, if you're submitting for the Free Private Servers sort but the experience doesn't support free articles/Creating a VIP Server on Roblox|Private Servers, the application will be rejected.
