Sexchat old man
The law requires that you have the mens rea (guilty mind/criminal intent) to commit the crime.Thus, as long as you think it's a minor child and you solicit that person for sex, it is illegal.
The commissioner's website has a listing on Roblox, including information about its two chat modes for children, however has no particular advice warning against the game.
In a statement to the ABC, Commissioner Julie Inman Grant said there were "potential dangers for any child using apps or social media services with chat functionalities".
But Ms Mc Lean said concerns about Roblox highlighted a broader issue."Any app or platform or game that allows two-way interaction between your child and another player is going to have predators on it," she said."And then the risk ramps up when you can have chat.
That's one of the features of this game."I think this is a very important warning for parents to not [just] look at the app or game developer's website.
"We need to be constantly engaging with them online, educating them about 'stranger danger' and encouraging them to speak to a trusted adult if they ever feel uncomfortable," Ms Grant said.
