Pink: Can We Truly Hate You?

Before GOODBLOX ran into some personal problems of its own, there was a new box that had released prior to when all the problems began. Users discovered the Speckled Pink Gift of Pinksplosion (and that’s a mouthful). Instantly, they found the description contained something about “hating pink”. I was amused that users were truly confused about this box because they kept saying they hated pink everywhere around the site – on blurbs, item descriptions, and forum posts. The list of comments has also got to be one of the longest lists I’ve ever seen on-site (which seems to be a good sign). However, this was not the case at all. If you hate pink, you do you. But I am here to reveal the truth, and nothing but the truth. If you don’t like it, then kindly delete this post from your browser history and ignore it. We don’t take kindly to complaints or insults.

In 2007, users initially got this because they owned an item with the color pink on it. We thought that was silly and clever, but we decided to brain-tease the community. Yes, the description said something about hating pink things, but how else would you hate pink things besides writing down the fact you hated pink, even if you didn’t truly mean it?

Well, some users were smart enough to avoid wearing and using pink body colors, clothing, hats, and other items altogether. Yes, even items that had a *teensy-tiny bit of pink* on them counted. We also decided to count the colors alder, lavender, and salmon because they’re lighter shades of magenta to us. Don’t agree? Your problem. You have to buy it for 100 G$ instead or leave it alone. We looked through every outfit carefully as best we could. If you were caught wearing pink colors, that’s it. This box is not for free.

But we can’t truly hate pink; I mean, this color does show toughness and this color is used to raise awareness on important topics around the world. Pink is tough, pink is cool. But if you genuinely hate the color pink, that’s too bad. We gave you this box just to spite you.

But don’t worry – there are more boxes on the horizon. A new Wanwood box just released last night, and it will be available to earn for a few days. If you made it to the end of the post, why don’t I drop a hint for you? You might as well look into uploading something in a specific category. But we’re not telling you what that requirement is specifically. Figure it out on your own, you clever GOODBLOXian, you.

We’re always watching.

A Gift Only For the Elite

In 2007, ROBLOX staff members put out two hints for the first two gift boxes: the Nice Gift and the Black Iron Gift of Pwnage. Unfortunately, after that, no more information was spread on the remaining boxes until every box had been released to the public for free.

But this time, it’s different. I am here to talk about all the boxes in detail as best I can. I’m also going to upload some cool still shots I got of the boxes while I was bored. But if you complain about not getting them, I will ignore you or ban you if you become annoying about it toward me. End of story.

Now, onto the tale…

A scary green box rose from the depths of a forbidden forest. No no, not the one like you’d find on the northwestern side of Hogwarts, but one with many tales of 1x1x1x1 and other exploiters from times past. Some say the depths of the darkest part of that forest contain a wormhole that connects to the forsaken location known as Banland, where all terminated users go to rot when they have been terminated by our merciless crack squad of moderators. This box has been said to be absolutely legendary for an abomination of reasons, and there are mysteries surrounding the founder whom crafted this cursed box to wreak horrible vengeance on ROBLOX back in December 2007.

Some say Telamon, 1x1x1x1 (and/or his counterparts), or Gamer3D created this box at an attempt to ruin Giftsplosion. When people found out the real creator of the box (JohnCarmack), we knew his evil plan, thus he wasn’t banned, but completely forbidden to access ROBLOX as a whole. As we all couldn’t have expected more, the box made its way to GOODBLOX. Users instantaneously believed JohnCarmack was the culprit, but they were surprised to find that when they messaged him, a letter might or might’ve not been sent back to their inbox, but he fooled Giftsplosion hunters into thinking this was a trap! Some users were clever enough to search his entire GOODBLOX account though, because they found this mysterious Decal
With this Decal advertising an accursed front-view version of a regular Domino Crown with a mysterious ID on the bottom right corner, users had to think harder on who the culprit was this time. Let’s look closely and think for a second; hmm, a Domino Crown…an accursed box…the number 15845…Banland…Wait a minute, now I know how some people found out who it was! It was none other than…

FLESKHJERTA.

Fleskhjerta was one of the initial popular users to ever hit the ROBLOX scene with his cool places and intricate bloopers that left a cool mark on YouTube (when it was still genuinely cool). Banned once and threatening to quit, then being terminated in Late 2008, he vowed happiness to be off the platform and had announced his (awaiting) retirement right then and there. Of course, he did come back thirteen years later to relive memories with his fans (and he was not pleased at all), but I think he had another trick up his sleeve. He sent this box straight from the depths of his cell in Banland over to us. Users found that when they received the mysterious Elite Gift of Hax0r in their inventory in due time, they had contacted the right person. They messaged Fleskhjerta – if you were one of these users, pat yourself on the back for solving this. Salute!

It is now on sale for 400 GOODBUX for a limited time only – the most expensive of all the boxes. If you bought it, you most likely got your money’s worth. But if you aren’t satisfied, then too bad. Delete it. We don’t care. But as of now, there’s only 58 in existance.

More boxes are coming along the horizon, and there’s still time left. Keep your thinking caps on and you’ll have more of them in no time.

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.

Olympic Building Contest

We’re having a building contest! How exciting.

The theme for this contest is based around the 2020 Olympic Games which is modeled off where it was originally going to be hosted – in Tokyo, Japan. We want you to build a GOODBLOX place to host one of the games, and this is a great opportunity because the pandemic postponed/cancelled the Olympics in the real world, and we think a virtual contest could be fun! Once everything you want is in place there will be plenty of locations for people to play Olympics games of your own.

How to Enter

1. Make a new place with the title “Olympics2020_________” with whatever you want to call the place on the blank line.
Examples: Olympics2020 Suzuki Tanaka|Olympics2020 I’m gonna win place|Olympics2020 Long jumping range.
1a. You can use ‘2008’ instead of ‘2020’ for nostalgic reasons if you prefer. Example: Olympics2008 nostalgic place 2.

2. Your place must be on your main account and still there at the time the contest ends September 20th, 2020 at 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time. The prizes will only go to your main account.

3. The place must be related to the Olympic Games. It must be about one of the Olympic sports, or about one of the locations for the Tokyo 2020 games.

4. If GOODBLOX is down, you may use ROBLOX to upload your place file. Prize earning still applies there – but prizes will be awarded on GOODBLOX when the web site is on-line.

IMPORTANT: On the Official Tokyo Olympics site, there’s a list of the sports, and a list of the locations the games are being held. Go check out the games and locations to get ideas for what you’d like your entry to be. Also it might be fun to include the Official Mascots of the games into your place somehow.

Video Contest Mini-Event

In addition to the building contest, we’re having a small video contest. To enter, post your video to YouTube or Vidlii with the following tags: GOODBLOX Olympics Tokyo. Remember to put your username and a link to the GOODBLOX website. The video can be any length but must be about GOODBLOX, the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, and must comply with the GOODBLOX Community Guidelines.(edited)

How to Win

Prize winners will be chosen in the following ways: At midnight (Pacific Time) after the end of the contest, we will run a database search to find the Visits count and Favorites count for entries. Our searches will know how many visits and favorites came after the start of the contest. We realize that one person may win more than one category. That is allowed. To prevent popularity loading we will not announce the winners of any prize until the end-date.

*The Mystery requirement will not be revealed until the end of the contest. Don’t ask! We may possibly give out more prizes than this, for different requirements. We reserve the right to add ways to win to the contest.

We hope to see many of our users building cool places to earn these fabulous prizes. The person with the most visits and favorites will also get special rewards too, so get going! Time is money…and items, I guess?

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!

Black Iron Gift of Pwnage

The masked malefactor has struck again! Late last night, he sent the web site into maintenance and distributed the gift to thousands of GOODBLOXian homes. We reported his motives a couple of days ago.

Users found that they got this mysterious (and shiny) blue box if they didn’t have a 1-day ban or more on their account record. He left a sale tag for the staff team as well, which appears to expire in 48 hours from now.

Now we have a cryptic news wire from the GOODBLOX Police commissioner Carl Burgundy:

Police Report                                          ID: 5f3759df

We’re having trouble getting to the Root of this problem. The thing is, it doesn’t square with everything we know about GOODBLOXians. See, most of them don’t break into places and leave gifts. This guy is doing the inverse. And he’s doing it fast.

The commissioner also pointed out that all the houses burglarized this time belonged to known advanced-level bloxxers and up. Whoever broke into their houses must be either supremely confident or insane. In any case, they’re dangerous and citizens should not attempt to apprehend them themselves.

Christmas…in July?

Wait a second – this is July. Why are we suddenly being festive? The answer is all over the website – some burglar broke into thousands of GOODBLOXian homes over the last few days. Nobody reported that anything was stolen, but users are beginning to see a lot of festivities around their levels and profile pages.

However, this is GOODBLOX – this means that not every box is exactly the same as it was back in 2007. That would be boring! This sort of on-site event may look familiar to some members of our community.

One thing is for sure, there’s a crazy man with a sack of gifts on the loose and no one knows when he will strike again!

Be sure to check out the rest of our updates here, with thanks from Pizzaboxer and KJF.

The Semi-Finals!

Hello there everyone – Jiquor here again with some exciting news. We have recently completed the quarter-finals after some problems and we’re happy to get started on the semi-finals. We’ve been extremely busy this week which is why there has been a delay. Because of this, I am sad to say that I am departing back to my shelter-in-place spot on Friday night and that means I won’t be able to stream the last three matches. Sorry! I will have them pre-recorded to be premiered on YouTube once that becomes available. You can find my channel here.

To the people that lost in the quarter-finals, you had a chance to be thrown into a random numeral generator to participate once again in the semi-finals to fight another team for third place. Congratulations to the Crimson Embers for being the lucky team to fight yet again in the semi-finals.

With this being said, here’s how the last four matches will work out. Read the details below very carefully.
1. The semifinals and final may be extended in length to one hour (two 30-minute sessions).
2. The two winners go to the finals, and the two losers fight for third place. This means there are four matches left to go.
3. Only participants in the tournament will be eligible to claim prizes. If you were part of a team, but did not show up, even if the team you were in won, you do not get anything. Nope, nada, zilch, zip, zero. Don’t complain to me about it – this was on you, so be there on time when it’s your turn.
4. Message Telamon on-site or Jiquor on Discord two hours before your match starts to signify a valid delay of your tournament time. In order for this to be eligible, the other team has to confirm the change with you. If the deadline passed to message somebody, you have no choice; you must play with whatever members of your team show up. If no members show up, the other team wins by default. If nobody from either team shows up, a random number generation will determine who gets to advance to the final round.
5. All guidelines in the previous blog post still apply (click to read).
6. Finally, anyone caught shooting through the lobby walls will be kicked from the server. Do not do it.

Here’s the roster for the semi-finals.

Remember:  4,000 GOODBUX and 5 Builders Club memberships are on the line, so get your act together. Gamer3D had made a trophy for this event back in 2007 to be given to the winning team. (You’ll be able to wear it on your head like a hat – you’ll look ridiculous but everyone will know you’re a deadly with a paintball gun.) Be sure to be the winning team to win this item with fierce determination!

Best of luck.

Paintball Tournament Updates!

June, June, June! Incredible paintball action! Skilled athletes, armed to the teeth, have won against various teams to move up in the quarter-finals! Six teams enter the gauntlet to compete for the top prizes, but only one team of five players can win! It’s all going down July 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. Mark your calendars! We made the diagram easier to understand in this update as well, and match times were (mostly) carefully accounted for this time.

If you are competing in the quarter-finals make sure your team knows when they’re all supposed to show up. 4,000 GOODBUX and 5 Builders Club memberships are on the line, so get your act together. Gamer3D had made a trophy for this event back in 2007 to be given to the winning team. (You’ll be able to wear it on your head like a hat – you’ll look ridiculous but everyone will know you’re a deadly with a paintball gun.) Be sure to be the winning team to win this item with fierce determination!

Here is the updated tournament schedule. Save this image to view a larger-sized version of it.

Jiquor will be managing all aspects of this tournament as per usual. He is the ultimate referee and what he says goes. When the dust settles, he’ll let us know who to award prizes to. Jiquor is back home until the 10th, so he may be difficult to contact at times. The semi-final and the final will also be live-streamed on Twitch!

Finally, don’t forget to check out the PTB team visors in the Catalog – support your favorite team with a piece of PTB memorabilia. We’ll be increasing the prices of these visors after the tournament, so act fast!

Sale of Independence

Hey there GOODBLOXians! We’ve made it more than halfway through this horrible year. However, that doesn’t mean it was horrible on GOODBLOX! We’ve made some awesome feats recently, and it’s almost Independence Day as well. Those feats include reaching 5,000 registered accounts onsite, celebrating another Showcase, making big changes to how games work, and ironing out some important bugs. That’s why I thought, “What couldn’t be more exciting than an on-site catalog sale?”

That’s why we’ve decided to run a sale from July 2nd, 2020 at 1:00p.m PST (UTC -8) to July 5th, 2020 at 1:00p.m. PST. There will be some amazing new items coming to GOODBLOX, there will be items coming on-sale, going off-sale, and being sold at discounted prices.

We also had a poll which lasted for a short time where users could vote on their favorite items to be featured during the Sale of Independence. Keep in mind that this blog post serves as a preview for some of the items that are being featured during the Sale, but this isn’t all of them. Way more than what’s listed below will be featured during the Sale of Independence. With that said, here they are!

Some items that are going back on-sale:

Some items being sold at a discount:

New items coming to GOODBLOX:

Left: Headband Of Sneaky Pwnage – by doc
Center: Fish Face – by Tawny (with help from Jiquor)
Right – American Styles – by Corviinus on ROBLOX

Additional information

Be sure to pick up a long-awaited item that’s being released on the 4th of July. It’s been in our catalog for nearly a year, and we’re finally excited to release it. You can only get it on this day. After Independence Day has passed, it will never be obtainable again (and not even during any other Independence Days in other years) unless we add Limited items and trading, which is extremely, extremely, EXTREMELY unlikely. In fact, don’t even think about it because it’s not going to happen especially while I’m still around. When I move on in 2021, that might change? We’ll just have to wait and see. . .

Also, we’re pleased to announce that Gear items will exclusively become available before Summer ends (hopefully in July like I originally thought). We hope this feature gives users a chance to create more epic games on GOODBLOX, and we hope that people will spice up their avatars with great looks. See the poll results below.

Finally, Political Top Hat won the sale poll, having 32 votes total. This item will come out during the sale for 150 G$ and it will not be available after the sale ends.

We hope that our game days have prepped people’s wallets for purchasing items during this GOODBLOX catalog sale. Keep going – this isn’t the end of your adventure!
