Game titles that span five lines cause creator name to be unclickable

Page URL: Gamename under playbutton bug examplegame place - Roblox
Impact: High
Frequency: Very Rare

Reproduction Steps:
Creating a place with a name that causes the title of the game to appear on five seperate lines can cause the creator a game’s username to become unclickable.

It’s easiest to do this with alternating length words or five long words, like " Cage Mesh Deformer - Layered Clothing Example - Roblox" or Gamename under playbutton bug examplegame place - Roblox

I can reproduce this this bug with the following device info on my 1920x1080 monitor:

  • User agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/90.0.4430.93 Safari/537.36
  • Platform Type: PC
  • Device Type: Computer

Expected Behavior:
I’d expect all of the game specific buttons like play button, ratings and favoriting status to be moved downwards to account for the title being readable and clickable, as clicking a game’s creator is important right now as groups and usernames can appear identically, and be used as a method of scamming.

Actual Behavior:
The name of the creator isn’t clickable.

Resizing the window to be horizontally thin enough that it expands the play button and puts the creator’s name on another line causes it to be clickable.


A bug report describing exactly the same issue can be found below.

The bug has been irritating me for a long time, and I hope that the creation of more topics will bring greater attention to this issue. In some instances, the creator’s name can actually go below the play button.
