Sorts are collections of experiences that users see when they are browsing the Discover page, such as Most Engaging, Up-and-Coming, and Roleplay. While most sorts generate automatically, you can nominate your experiences to Learn & Explore, Free Private Servers, and Xbox Featured sort categories. Experiences you nominate should have a consistent and active user base, be well-liked by the community, and remain public to all users. Consequently, Paid Access experiences are ineligible.
After you nominate an experience, wait at least 2 weeks before re-submitting a nomination, as it typically takes anywhere from 2-4 weeks to review submissions. When an experience is approved, you'll receive a direct message on the Developer Forum. To avoid having to resubmit a nomination, carefully review the criteria for each category to make sure your submission applies to the correct category.
Learn & Explore Criteria
The Learn & Explore sort highlights experiences that let users learn in an engaging way. The Roblox Education team reviews all applications in this sort category, and they may highlight accepted nominations on the Education Hub or the Roblox Education Twitter account.
An experience in the Learn & Explore sort must:
- Explore a subject matter, such as science, history, or math, or have educational value that is clear to an educator.
- Not allow users to encounter aggressive monetization as a part of their first time user experience. Monetization should not detract from learning or gameplay. For example, users cannot access large portions of content or gain an unfair advantage in gameplay due to monetization.
- Remain appropriate for a classroom for students of all ages, even if it contains advanced subject matter.
- Have a "Like" ratio above 50%, and maintain at least 15 daily active users.
In addition, you and your team must have a recently clean moderation history.

An experience in the Free Private Servers sort must:
- Contain activities people would do in their daily lives, such as hanging out at a cafe, shopping at a mall, or hiking through the woods together.
- Have Private Servers enabled and set to free.
- Have a "Like" ratio above 50%, and maintain at least 50 daily active users.

To ensure fresh content, the Developer Relations team rotates experiences in this sort category every two weeks.
Xbox Featured Criteria
The Xbox Featured sort highlights experiences specifically compatible with Xbox devices, such as having full support for gamepad input in Xbox-specific terminology.
An experience in the Xbox Featured sort must:
- Be fully playable on the Xbox One.
- Pass the Xbox Guidelines. If your experience does not meet these guidelines, Roblox will contact you.
