Happy 10K Day!

Day by day, GoodBloxia expands in size. Today is no exception, as GoodBlox has reached 10,000 registered accounts! To put that into perspective, here’s that many bricks in one game: https://goodblox.xyz/PlaceItem.aspx?ID=3340

Alongside that, we’ve released a hat only available today for 15 Tix and 2 GOODBUX. Grab it here!

Farewell

Jiquor with his two sports cars.

Dear GOODBLOX Community,

I have been a part of this revival since the very beginning when we first started in 2018 with Keanu73, MrPinball64, GameHero, KJF, and others. We have been through so much over these last couple years with three different iterations of GOODBLOX – this iteration being the best and most successful despite many bumps in the road we’ve been through along the way.

But I’m going to get to the point, no matter how hard it may be. I regret to tell everyone, but it must be done. I am retiring from GOODBLOX completely, which will be effective on October 1st, 2020.

My decision was set as of September 20th, 2020. I am officially retiring from the GOODBLOX community and all of what has been part of “ROBLOX” with me for more than a decade (since May 2007). I have to focus on taking care of my family in their fragile states, I have to focus on Tawny, my significant other, I have to focus on my education extremely highly (I seek a future in psychology and want to keep going with the competitive GPA I have at this moment, and the pandemic has shifted classes online which makes class participation even tougher on me), and I’m getting serious with my new hobby, which will be body work and mechanical engineering (for automotive transportation). The COVID-19 pandemic is also hiccuping my life as a whole even further than it has in the beginning of the pandemic, and there are some personal hiccups I’ve experienced this year that I won’t bring up because they’re on highly personal levels for me. But all this has made me realize what I must be focusing on – and that’s my true future.

The paintball map I worked on with our staff team.

I’m even slowly beginning to stop playing games as a whole – the only real thing I play these days is Pokemon GO, but that’s with my friends in the real world – a game in which all twelve of us play, even together as best we can. Some of those friends have come and gone within the last four years, but it’s where I feel I can truly feel connected. The stress that’s built up here as well has partially taken a mental toll on me, and I know it’s time for a newer generation of people to carry on this project.

There’s a lot more I want to write here, but that would take about fifteen pages and three hours which I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT HAVE today. My work ethic and life goals are slowly coming back into my sense of reality, and who I truly want to become. And I don’t expect to return, but if I do, it will be as a lowly asset developer and creator. I truly thank all of you for being in my presence these last few years.

Before I sign off, I want to give a special thanks to KJF for being a great mentor to me these past few years. I’ve probably learned more about game and web development from him than I’ve learned from others. It’s knowledge that I believe will come in handy.

If you want to keep in touch, the best way to do that is via Twitter, or Discord, if you have access to those. I will most likely update my Twitter more often down the road – nonetheless, keep building, GOODBLOXia.

Farewell, soon…

A Year to Remember

Various members of the community with KJF

GOODBLOXians,

It’s almost been a year since we’ve started the third reiteration of GOODBLOX, which has proven to be such a success, despite many bumps we’ve been through along the way. We have a fantastic community that’s growing beyond what we expected, we have many talented community members creating awesome content, we have items unlike you’ve ever seen in the classic days of ROBLOX, and we have an incredible staff team.

Jiquor before his termination – by “doc”

Our server was created on the 23rd of September by JackGamesFTW with assistance from other staff members. After about three or four days, I was invited to help out with the project (mostly because I’ve been in the other two inderations of this project beforehand). It’s no surprise that I took on a creative role early because of my (almost ten year experience) with ROBLOX (May 2007 – January 2017). With that, I’ve risen from a simple Administrator, to a Creative Director, and now, I’m the Co-Owner. I am proud to serve fellow GOODBLOXians, but I am more than proud to swing the banhammer too. But don’t let that discourage you from chatting with me. I’m usually friendly!

We think our mission to become A Different Revival Project has been a success. Members of the community are friendlier with one another and folks are having endless fun on the forums, various Places, and even in the comments section. This is one of the first revival projects as well to have a classic web site layout of ROBLOX, which shows how nostalgic we really are. This community is also designed to be friendlier than all the ones that have existed throughout the Old ROBLOX Community in general. We think things are looking great! But with a lot of work and updates over the horizon, we can transform this project as a whole…

HOWEVER…

I’d like to celebrate the third reiteration of GOODBLOX more than we ever have before. This is our true one year anniversary – a year in which we’ve truly stayed alive. We knew we would get there, even when the existence of GOODBLOX was uncertain at a few occasions. And we couldn’t have done it without you – the community of GOODBLOX. We couldn’t have done it without KJF, and our contributors. And even if Pranked_Bro is no longer here, we have to at thank him for at least starting the project and attempting to bring people together. Long live GOODBLOX!

THE DETAILS OF GOODFEST 2020:

Community Day – September 2020

We have a wide range of surprises for the entire community. Stuff being brought back, a special sale, a new event, and best of all, a brand new concept called Community Day. We were going to host our first Community Day on the weekend, but once we remembered our anniversary date, we had to host it on the day of our anniversary. But after that, each Community Day will be hosted on the weekends. If you complain though, I’ll ignore you or ban you. Do I need to repeat myself? You get the memo. We appreciate positivity and appreciation with a side of constructive feedback, and that shows well throughout the community.
ONTO THE EVENT LIST NOW…

SEPTEMBER 20: The GOODFEST Catalog Sale starts!
SEPTEMBER 21: Eggstravaganza re-opens!
SEPTEMBER 22: One day of Reign of Tickets and GOODBUX!
SEPTEMBER 23: Community Day, featuring The Golden GOODBLOXian!
SEPTEMBER 24: Lucky Item Festival re-opens!
SEPTEMBER 25: Our new event releases! Wait for details.
SEPTEMBER 26: GAME DAY: Battle Day opens! Wait for details.

On September 27, 2020, everything shuts down right when I wake up. Reign, Community Day, and Game Day abide by a schedule. The poll for the sale goes up soon, and it will start sometime on September 20, 2020.

We can’t wait for our brand new users to partake in the events that they missed back then! One thing I’d like to remind our users of: when it comes to a fear of missing out, you (mostly) don’t have to fear! We try our best to make items obtainable and events playable throughout the months to give new users a chance to earn some fabulous prizes. It doesn’t happen for every item and event, but when it does, you better take the chance!

Let’s keep bringing the community together.
One step at a time.

Introducing GOODBLOX Community Day!

We’re incredibly excited to announce GOODBLOX Community Day–a monthly worldwide event dedicated to celebrate you, the GOODBLOXians in the GOODBLOX community.

What is GOODBLOX Community Day?
GOODBLOX Community Day is an opportunity for everyone in the community to join huge servers with lots of players so you can understand what it means to be a part of this awesome community.

Once a month, we’ll host this event starring a special item, which will appear frequently in the server for just a few hours. When picked up during the event, this special item will award you 50 TIX or 5 GOODBUX. Other bonuses will be in effect during the event, such as increased Walk-speed in the event place, or double ticket earnings for people visiting your place. All bonuses are chosen by us, so each post will tell you what will be featured, and when it will be featured!

We’re constantly blown away by how well this community continues to grow and we’re also blown away by how more respectful this community has generally been lately. Remember to always be alert and follow our rules while playing and to be respectful of all players. Stay tuned to our social media channels and check out this blog and our Discord channel to learn about that month’s featured item, special bonuses, and event times.

Celebrate the first ever GOODBLOX Community Day on September 23, 2020!

Please mark your calendars so you can attend this special event. The first GOODBLOX Community Day arrives then, and it features The Golden GOODBLOXian! Explore Glass Houses with friends and affiliates to grab some Golden GOODBLOXians that award 50 Tickets for every item you collect! If you are lucky, you might collect something extraordinarily special that’s unlike all the other Golden GOODBLOXians out there on the playing field. While you’re out making new friends and exploring, your character will have increased walk-speed and jumping impulse.

Please note: while playing, all weapons will be removed to ensure a friendly and non-annoying experience for all as minimally possible.

See below for event hours. All times are in PST (UTC-8).
Americas/Canada/Greenland: 12:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M.
Europe/Africa/Middle East/India: 12:00 A.M – 3:00 A.M.
Asia-Pacific: 4:00 P.M. – 7:00 P.M.

While you’re out celebrating with players, be sure to share your experiences on your favorite social media channels with the hashtag #GOODBLOXCommunityDay. We can’t wait to hear about all the new memories you’ll be making while playing during these events!

GOODBLOX Grows Again!

Introducing PizzaBoxer – the newest member of the GOODBLOX Team! He has joined the ranks of our Development team as a full-time programmer. His specialty is PHP and C#. We’re all excited to have him aboard and can’t wait to see what magic tricks he can work with the software.

PizzaBoxer is unfortunately the victim of spontaneous arm-loss onsite and torso-loss ingame. He says he’d appreciate some friend requests and some support to help him gain his limbs back. In his words, he also says you should “remember to pay your taxes or you’ll end up armless like me >:(“.

He will be helping the Moderation team off and on and is already super busy with projects. You can PM him to say “Hi” or give suggestions for his place. Please don’t ask PizzaBoxer for stuff or ask scripting questions. We can’t have him getting distracted!

Hooray for PizzaBoxer!

GoodBlox: 1,000 Users

Last week, we reached an awesome milestone for our Revival: our 10,000th GoodBlox user account was registered by “Timothy”. I’ve seen him online occasionally, but we hope he participates in the community for a long while to come. We would love to be able to award our 1000th user some sort of prize, but we don’t have anything to give at the moment.


However, I honestly never would’ve expected to see a total of one thousand users in our growing community. I am amazed at how many of you had shown interest in our revival project, and we’re grateful for you all to be with us. I especially am grateful for our staff members who have come and gone over the years to help us keep this project strong and alive. We’ve been through some rough bumps, and we’ve still got a lot of work to do, but the most important thing is that we’re all here and we couldn’t have achieved this milestone without you. Salute!

Because of the fact that we’ve reached 1,000+ users on GoodBlox, I am pleased to announce that we’ll be having a special sale from May 8th to May 11th. Be sure to save up your currency, enter future giveaways, sell some shirts, and join our Discord server.

Maybe when the sale progresses on, our 1000th user will be fortunate enough to receive one of our most expensive sale items. But until then, look forward to this future sale which runs from May 8th to May 11th.

We’re Public!

“And as those bricks forged together, more of them started to come together rapidly. The first level on ROBLOX was created from these bricks alone, but there was nothing else beside a mountain of bricks in the center of a lone baseplate. As ROBLOX continued to develop, humanoids were appearing out of thin air and they were sharing what they had to offer creatively. Updates revolutionized ROBLOXia, staff members came and left, and the virtual currency, Tickets, were banished from ROBLOX later on.
Suddenly, a glitch in the matrix opened a mysterious portal that humanoids before 2010 could see. Some entered this portal, leading them into the world of GoodBlox. To some, it seemed this place was a dream come true, or merely a mirage. Days later, more humanoids, even those created recently, saw these mysterious portals and stepped in for their next amazing adventures…”

The Chronicles of GoodBlox, V.68

GoodBloxians, we’ve done it. At its current state, the GoodBlox web site has released to the general public. GoodBlox is aimed to replicate ROBLOX as it was in the year 2008 in all its glory. We have things that ROBLOX no longer has that many players are going to enjoy, such as two currencies, the GoodBlox Forums, classic icons and renders, and so much more!
Of course, we are unable to make everything as it was 100% accurate, and that also goes to say that nothing and nobody is perfect. We are humans, and that means some errors will occur along the way, but we are doing our best to replicate everything as best as we can for our wonderful community. Some of those inaccuracies include never-before seen events, awesome new assets, and users + their unique id’s. However, we assure you that a lot of these features and items are necessary to make GoodBlox a successful revival. Remember: we welcome player input, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to let us know

We have a new, never-before seen User Badge on GoodBlox, the Beta Tester Badge! This neat badge signifies users that have registered an account on GoodBlox during the beta testing period. All Beta Testers will also receive news, updates, and event information ahead of the general public, and some other awesome perks!

Finally, we have worked hard to bring GoodBlox to you, even during our busy lives. KJF and PrankedBro have a thrilling education, MrPinball64 is working a job and involved with other projects, and Jiquor is working three jobs, attending college, working on two projects, and supporting his significant other (whoa)! However, even if staff members have busy lives, we’re still working hard on GoodBlox and we do not plan on disappearing any time soon. The site is still not fully complete, so we rely on everyone to submit suggestions and bug reports – even some reports might qualify for virtual currency or a unique, never-before seen asset on GoodBlox!

Remember that you can always contact us by posting on the Goodblox Forums, and you can also message GoodBlox staff members on GoodBlox or the Discord server, where we all are to answer any questions, concerns, and comments you have about GoodBlox.

Welcome to Goodblox!

“In the beginning, there was nothing, and that was absolute; an absolute void where only one brick, Two-By-Two, existed in this void of nothing. Two-By-Two suddenly multiplies, resizing itself, colorizing itself, and organizing itself, and ROBLOX was born. As years went by, a gap in the fabric of our delicate, blocky universe formed seemingly out of nowhere, where it felt like something vital was missing in this universe. Out of nowhere, a vintage brick set itself to the center of this gap in our blocky universe, Classic-By-Two, which multiplied and colorized itself, about the same as many years ago. Nothing tried to stop this brick, but Classic-By-Two prevailed over Nothing, growing bigger and bigger. That world is constantly expanding as we know it.”

The Chronicles of Goodblox, VI.137

Welcome one and all to Goodblox! Goodblox is a ROBLOX revival dedicated to classic ROBLOX times in the year 2008, and we’re excited that you’ve decided to view our site, and hopefully have joined our wonderful community of players. This journal was created by the Goodblox Staff Team where they can drop hints about on-goings on Goodblox, share their thoughts about different aspects of the sandbox platform, and occasionally post sneak-peeks about what’s in the works. As we keep tinkering around with the ideas of what ROBLOX used to be like during its classic period, we have ideas of our own that will benefit Goodblox as a whole, and we’re always listening to the community, even if we are all spammed with requests and messages on a daily to daily basis. We’re always listening.

One thing about the future of Goodblox we have been thinking hard about is how we are going to be able to run the most secure client ever engineered over the history of many revival projects. In the past, that has been a problem because there have been staff members that have betrayed us during our developmental period of Goodblox, and there are always people that want to exploit our project for their own fun and benefit. With the current team we have now, we can assure all of you that we are coming up with many ways to make Goodblox extremely successful, compared to the other attempts when Goodblox was being developed.

We welcome player input, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to let us know by posting on the Goodblox Forums. You can also write to any of our staff members in our Discord server, where we all are to answer any questions, concerns, and comments you have about Goodblox.

Since you’ve read this far, I’d like to share a little image with you. This is a sneak peek based on a feature we’re currently working on. You can enlarge the image by clicking on it, and we are working hard on making this feature live, but always remember, coding is a head-banger, no matter how good you are at it. That goes for all of us.
