  1. Password Protected Servers

    It would be a great if you could set a password for people to join the server. For example, if someone clicks the instant invite link, they are prompted for a password, which the owner can give them. I think this would stop random people joining the server if the invite link gets spread.

  2. Share System Sound

    So with screen sharing and video calls just hitting discord, what better way to accompany them than by also adding an option to share your system sound like skype can!

    In skype you can share your system sound with your friend without it looping their voice back through, which is super useful for applications such as watching someone play a game, or showing music projects etc!

    Also if the system sound is Stereo that would be a step up on skype!

  3. Admin Icon - Give Admins a better way to identify themselves

    The idea is that admins could have a small bubble (an icon) added to their profile picture (or name, for the compact view) to quickly display that this user is an admin, withing the actual chat without looking at the member list.

    The bubble could be either a custom picture in a very small resolution (hence it being an icon) or a preset (colors, forms, e.t.c.) which can be activated or deactivated for the server. It could be displayed either at the top left, top right, bottom left or bottom right of the profile picture.

    I ever felt like it…

  4. Enable pop-out video chat, and allow dragging the box anywhere.

    Currently, the video chat function is limited only to when you have discord focused, a 'pop out' button would be a really good idea.

    As well, currently you can only drag the window (While in a chat other than who you're calling) to either the top or bottom right, it'd be nice if you could fix it anywhere on the screen.

  5. Allow changing color for @everyone

    Being able to change the color for the everyone role would have positive benefits across the board (especially with server theming)

  6. Category Within A Category (Sub-Category)

    I like the implementation of the categories for discord. It makes servers look a lot more neater and better to look at, but there are some people that would like more the the main category because sometimes it isn't enough. Having a second layer would be enough, for example:
    > Categories
    -channels
    >Sub-Categories
    -channels
    (apology for any grammar/spelling mistakes)

  7. New Loading Lines

    Hey, thanks for taking your time to come here with your amazing ideas for new Loading Lines! You can comment them here instead of making a new suggestion just for it. What you can also do is Tweet them to @discordapp.

    This suggestion also functions as a Megathread to merge new Loading Line sugegstions into. When merging them, please add a comment of the suggested line as well so that it doesn't get lost.

  8. One video/screenshare presenter to the entire server

    I would like to suggest the function to have ONE presenter broadcasting video/screenshare to the entire server/channel, like a close group livestreaming where viewers can text chat while watching. It is extremely useful for demonstration and education purposes, especially for an art education server like mine.

  9. Colorblind

    I have deuteranopia (red/green) and I can't differentiate the colors in the activity status bubble. Adding a tool tips kind of function where I can hover the mouse over the bubble to see if they are active/away/busy/offline etc would go a long way to those affected by deuteranopia colorblindness determine the activity status of users.

  10. Grace Period for Deleted Channel Recovery

    A channel was recently deleted accidentally by a staff member with Manage Channels permission. Because of this, we lost all chat history in the almost-a-year-old channel.

    After reaching out to Discord support, I was told that this delete is a true delete, and data is unrecoverable.

    Because of this, I believe there should be a grace period for recovery of deleted text channels. When a channel is deleted, it should be hidden from the channel navigation and un-interactable (like how deletion currently works.)

    After this, a section called "Deleted Channels" would be available in the Server Settings. A list of…

  11. Add a server setting to disallow private messages to users

    As a large guild owner, we fairly constantly get people who private message members in our server with "Steam gift code" or other sorts of scams.

    Add an option to disallow people from direct messaging other users if their only mutual server is ours. However, friend settings will override this (as it makes sense). This will help in large servers that try to keep their users safe.

  12. Make minimum window size an optional feature.

    Ever since the last update (earlier today), discord has now a minimum window size.

    However, this minimum window size is way waaay too big for me. I want my window way smaller than that, I like to keep discord opened on my second screen and I only really need to see the last 2~3 messages.
    Right now, discord takes up half of my screen, I don't need or want it to take up that much of the screen.

    I can see how it's needed in certain occasions, or how it's handy for a few people. I also know there's been…

  13. Maintenance mode

    Ok, so say you need to do some work to your server and you don't want users online. You enable maintenance mode in the server settings so that only admins can connect. When users click on your server a page pops up saying 'Servername is currently in Maintenance Mode. Estimated time left: ----- ' or something simular?

  14. Password Protected Channels

    This is still an improvement that partially blocks some communities to go through discord and not TeamSpeak. Let me explain.
    Currently I own a game server, players in my community are divided by teams they create themselves and there are sometimes more than 50 different teams. We will not create a rank with permissions and a channel for the 50 teams and move their friends from an anoter team for each team everytime on discord. So using a password system I would just have to create a channel with a password choosed by the factions and they can give the…

  15. Busy Status Indicator

    With the different status' available the use of Do Not Disturb seems a little harsh when maybe you are only in the middle of a game or just busy working and may not be able to answer right away but are open to receiving messages. Online shows too much leniency and notification sounds. This is why I believe we should have a "Busy" status indicator that doesn't give notification sounds much like Do Not Disturb but allows other users to know we will get back to them albeit a bit delayed. The color could be Pink or Blue.

  17. <name> is online.

    Something similar to skype where you get a notification if your friend comes online. There should also be an option to disable this for certain friends or entirely.

  18. Mute symbol should look different when I've muted the user and they've muted themselves.

    Why does the mute symbol look the same when I've muted the user and they've muted themselves? Many times now I've muted a user some other day, don't remember it, join a channel where he is and I just think he's muted himself and I probably talk over him.

  19. Be invisible on one server but online on another.

    We can choose on which server we are online but invisible on other. Imagine I am on a server but I want to leave them to devote myself to another server without being told "you were online ... Why not be with us ... Liar" Because yes sometimes I was lying . For having peace on another servers. Thank you !

  20. Search exclusions

    I would love to see a feature in search for exclusions, Stuff like:
    not-from: user
    not-in: channel
    not-during: date
    etc.

    I find that a lot of times I know what I don't want to find. And having exclusion filters would be an easy way to filter out the extra noise.
