As a Roblox player, of course you need to know about the rules of playing in this platform. If you do not know about it, you may do a mistake which can lead you to get warning. And even the worst thing is that you can be banned.
Talking about being banned, it is important for you to know how many warnings on Roblox until you get banned. Here, you can read the explanation about it.
The Amount of Warnings To Ban a Roblox Player
If a player does a violation and the violation that she or he does is serious thing such as scamming, phishing, hacking, adult content, game theft or violation of federal law, the account of that player is able to be deleted without any notices.
However, a player is also able to get a ban from an individual game, but this ban is only brought by a game moderator where it means that it is not by a Roblox administrator.
If a Roblox account is deleted, players are not able to see the profiles anymore. However, on January 15th, 2014, there was a bug where it gave users access to see terminated account profiles.
The Levels of Ban
In Roblox, there are some levels of ban where it depends on the severity of the behaviour. According to Roblox site, here are the levels of ban.
- 1 day ban
This ban happens for 24 hours from the time the moderation was initiated.
- 3 day ban
This ban happens for 72 hours from the time the moderation was initiated.
- 7 day ban
This ban happens for 1 week from the time the moderation was initiated.
If your account is deleted, it means that your account has been closed and it is not able to be reopened automatically.
According to Roblox Wiki, in addition to the ban levels above, there are also the other ban levels as you are able to read below.
- Ban/ in-experience ban
This is a ban which is done by an experience administrator and often it uses a command script. If a player is banned from an experience, she / he will get error code 267 with a reason. This ban only applies to a specific experience and there are four types of this ban.
A ban where a player is got rid of a server by an experience administrator. However, the player is still able to rejoin the server.

The account of the player and other accounts which are associated to the IP of the player are deleted. Also, creating new account is disabled. It can happen if a player severely violates the Terms of Service or a federal law. Poisoned players are able to get into the Roblox website and log into an account which is not connected to the IP of the poisoned player.
- IP Ban (7 Days)
This ban is reserved for very severe violation of the Terms of Service or federal law. All players on this IP address will be blocked for 7 days and they will see a 403 error when they are trying to access the Roblox website.

This ban is the most powerful ban a player can get. All players on this IP address will be banned from accessing the Roblox website permanently. This ban can happen if a player violates federal law severely.
- Error 0x1 (MAC Address)
