Talent Hub – Ensuring Developers' Safety

Talent Hub is a great place for creators to connect and collaborate. Whether you’re looking for someone with a special skill set or want the chance to showcase your own, this is the spot for you.

We want to make sure your experience on Talent Hub is as rewarding and safe as it can be. With that in mind, we’ve put together a few guidelines to help you foster productive relationships and avoid some potential issues.

Verifying a Creator’s Credentials

You may notice that some users have a verified badge next to their username on Talent Hub. This lets you know that Roblox reasonably believes those users are real and they are who they say they are.

Verified or not, you should talk with any potential collaborators before committing to working with them. By discussing their previous projects and skills, you can more clearly assess how much experience they actually have and make sure any information they’ve shared on their profile is accurate.

Creators can add links to other accounts on their Creator Page, including Roblox, DevForum, and their social media. Viewing these accounts to see how active they are and how they interact with others can help you determine whether you want to collaborate with them.

Creators will most likely claim they’ve done previous work when showing that they’d be a good person to collaborate with. You can verify their work by looking to see if their Roblox account is involved in the experiences they say they’ve made. You can also reach out to previous collaborators they’ve worked with on DevForum (or elsewhere) and make sure that the creator is telling the truth about their work. You can also ask these previous collaborators about their experiences working with the creator.

Setting Up a Safe and Productive Partnership

An important thing to keep in mind as you start collaborating with a creator is that neither party should deliver all the work before receiving compensation or pay all compensation upfront before any work is done. Doing so could open the possibility that someone disappears without paying for or completing the contracted work. Instead, it should generally be established between both parties that partial compensation be made before work begins, with the remaining amount paid once the work has been delivered. This may change depending on the kind of collaboration you’re starting, but setting these expectations — and sticking to them once agreed upon — is crucial for both parties.

By thinking about these guidelines when starting to collaborate with others, you can help ensure that you, your work, and your Robux are kept safe.
