GDPR messages should highlight important information better and have links to games

Currently, GDPR messages are a huge text wall:

Hi Dev,

We received a right-of-erasure-request for the following User ID(s): [REDACTED]. Please delete this User ID immediately from all of your records (e.g. games, data stores, etc.) from the following Game(s): 1441335069, 1441442726 as this is an obligation under data protection laws. If you would like more information about how to delete a User ID from a data store, please visit our Developer Hub at https://developer.roblox.com/articles/Data-store , https://developer.roblox.com/api-reference/class/GlobalDataStore and https://developer.roblox.com/en-us/articles/managing-personal-information.

Please note that you must delete the User ID from all of your records, and not just from your data stores. The pages linked above are provided for informational purposes and are not intended to provide a comprehensive method of deleting User IDs.

The links are not clickable and it is hard to parse important information at a glance.

I propose that:

  • The User ID(s) should be clearly marked, on their own line or bolded, so that they can be caught more easily at a glance
  • The game(s) should not be given as IDs but as clickable links, so I can easily navigate to them without needing to type roblox.com/games/{id} manually in browser
  • The DevHub links should be clickable

Proposed format:

This does not require any additional data to be available to whatever is sending these messages. It just requires making the Roblox messages HTML-enabled so they can have fancier formatting, AFAIC.
