Possible usage (examples of links):
- https://www.roblox.com/home?followUserId=1 - would make the client follow user ID 1 into the game the user is playing (only works if the player's privacy settings allow you to join them e.g. via the profile)
- https://www.roblox.com/home?editPlaceId=920587237 - would try to open a place with that ID in the studio (won't work if you don't have permissions to edit that place)
- https://www.roblox.com/home?placeId=920587237 - would open the client and join that place (won't work if you don't have permissions to play it)
- https://www.roblox.com/home?placeId=920587237&gameId=8c7024c6-e89d-4bd1-977b-2c21fd8ed793 OR https://www.roblox.com/games/920587237/NAME?gameId=8c7024c6-e89d-4bd1-977b-2c21fd8ed793 - would open the client and join a server with that identifier (same condition as above applies)
- https://www.roblox.com/home?privatePlaceId=920587237&privateId=efa67300-c5a1-47e6-a3d8-a9af904e6993 - would open the client and join a private server with that identifier (only works if you normally see the server under the `Servers` tab. In other case, use below method based on invite link)
- https://www.roblox.com/home?privatePlaceId=920587237&code=wlH1zTFR3s3ZRNTbwzVL3530tVh2aHl1 - joins a private server using private server link (code comes from `privateServerLinkCode` parameter of Roblox's private server link)
The browser tab will be automatically closed after launching the app unless `dontClose=1` parameter is present in the link.
