Group Descriptions too short before interrupted by "Read More"

As a Roblox Developer with a group, I want to be able to share valuable information to the people who stop by the group in the quickest way possible. I want the least resistance for players to find, read, and take in the information presented to them. A recent update has shortened the visible group description to an absurd degree, essentially telling developers (this is how I feel) that this is not the place to post valuable information. If not a group description where do we post? What is the point in shortening the amount of visible information and hiding it behind an extra click?

A typical group has some things to say in their group description that we want the highest amount of people to see, and this “Read More” button adds resistance to that goal.

If Roblox were to address this issue, developers and other group owners would be able to present their group in whichever way they wish, whether that is a lot of info or a tiny summary. Allow the developer to decide how much text is presented, rather than force it upon everyone in an attempt at a one size fits all solution.

I’m annoyed currently by the short length of the collapsed profile bio, and this is just taking that frustration and spreading it somewhere actively harmful to my ability to reach my game’s audience (comprised of impatient children who already barely read).

My players now have to work harder to find important information about where to go to submit ban appeals, suggestions, bugs, etc, and will dump even more mindlessly into the group wall.

Probably also bad for SEO.

Developers should have more control over the look and feel of these content pages (game page, group page, profile page) IMHO.
