Roblox makes it easy to create a Roblox noob or customize a Roblox avatar, but Roblox group names are not so easy to change. Heck, it’s even easy to play Roblox VR games which heighten your experience and introduce you to the virtual world. Rest assured, however, with a few steps, you can change your Roblox group name at any time.
If you play Roblox, you are probably in a group, so how you can change a Roblox group name becomes relevant quickly. Roblox groups are named automatically, and most people will change them right away. But, for people who have played together for a long time, maybe you want to change the name after your personalities have changed.Your group name is important, especially if you play with people you don’t know. Your group name gives you a personality and helps you to form a community.
When you create a group, you put like-minded players together and work towards a common goal. Sometimes, that goal is just to have a good time, and other times, it is to wreak havoc. If you’ve played Roblox for a long time, you may want to rename a Roblox group to help you keep track of what you are doing. It can help you to build, battle, and engage in gameplay.
First: Change the Owner of the Group
Whatever your reason is for changing the name of your Roblox group, it is pretty easy to do if you are the owner of the group. If you aren’t the owner of the group, you won’t be able to do it. Luckily, it is also easy to change the owner of the group. Follow these steps:
- Go to the Groups feature.
- Click on the group for which you want to change the owner.
- Click on “Group Admin.”
- Click on “Members.”
- Search for the user you want to remove from the leadership role (or just remove).
- Click on the drop-down box under their profile picture.
- Select a different role to assign to them.
- Assign yourself (or someone new) as the owner.
Now, it isn’t always easy to do this. You will need to have the permissions to do it. Often, people will just form a brand-new group and assign a name that way. This helps to cull members of the group and rename it at the same time. There is no way to delete a group.
While you are in there, you can also change the group description. You will need to click on the red X located in the same area.
How To Change Your Group Name on Roblox
I cannot stress this enough: changing the name of a group on Roblox is easy, but it is inconvenient. When you create a group, try to get the name right before you make it. Make it generic enough that you won’t want to change it.After you have created it, there is no feature which will allow you to change your group name. This doesn’t mean you cannot change it. As with almost everything in Roblox, there are ways to work around it. Some of them aren’t exactly effective for most players, just those looking to cause a bit of trouble. Even so, here are a few ways to change your Roblox group name:
1 – Use a Brand Name in Your Group Title
Did you use a brand name in your group name? For example, group names like “Target Workers” or “JonSnows” may get copyright complaints. In the past, people have been warned to change their names, and they were given the option within Roblox.
The most famous case happened in 2015 when a group was named “Frappe” and Starbucks filed a lawsuit against Roblox. The group was forced to change the name. Honestly, it was nice of Roblox to even give them the option. Most other platforms would have just deleted the group.
This is your best option. You can use a brand name in hopes that someone will file a copyright claim against you. I’d only use this option if you aren’t sure about what you want your group name to be, but you want to form it now.
The option to change the group name will go to the owner of the group, not everyone else.
2 – You Can Try to Contact Roblox Directly
If you want to edit your group name on Roblox, you can try to contact them directly. This may or may not work for you, but a few people have had success in doing this. Send them an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will have to plead your case and make a good argument, but it has been known to work.
Often, it works best if you have a member’s name or something similar within your group. Once again, you can only email them if you are the owner of the group.
It may depend on the customer service agent you get. If you don’t get what you want, you may want to wait a few weeks and try again.
While you can get any group name you want (within reason—you cannot use hate-speak or foul language) on Roblox and use it to define what you do within the game and to attract more like-minded players to join you in your mission.
Unfortunately, you cannot change the name after making it in most cases, unless you try one of the methods listed above. Those won’t always work out. The owner of your group should contact Roblox to get more information on whether or not he or she can change your group name.
Other than that, there are no ways to do it. Most people simply create a new group.
