Highlight Words, for Custom Notifications / Mentions
Allow users to provide a comma separated list of words that will trigger a notification, so you will be notified if someone is talking about you without using the @mention syntax, or if you have a nickname that people often refer to you as besides your username.
In Slack, these are called Highlight Words, and your username minus the @ is automatically one.
Yeah, the countless times I've been browsing servers and seeing old conversations that I "missed" because it would be awkward to bring up again hours later...
someone mentions a particular game, hobby, tv show, movie, youtuber, twitch streamer, etc.
100% I support this idea.
This is really needed. My friends and I came up with emergency code words for when something goes wrong and they need all of us present without actually announcing what’s going on. When the codeword was used though, none of us got the notification. Implementing this kind of feature would allow us to always be aware in those situations.
Yes, but I would like to add that it would be preferable if you could choose which highlight word notification you're getting for each server. Also, I think the whole "Your username is automatically a highlight word" shouldn't be implemented.
I would also like to see this feature
Yes please, this feature what I'm looking for
The issue I find is that often I have a question but I have no clue who on my server might have the answer, that's why I propose an "@anyone" mention for discord. This would be a less important or urgent mention to all users, and I have several ideas for what it could do:
1) It behaves identical to "@everyone", but it just improves sentence syntax. I.E.: "Does @anyone have an idea on how to fix this glitch?". This would let readers know only minimal responses are needed, and it isn't an important issue, just something at least one person will hopefully answer to.
2) It highlights text like "@everyone", but does not send a notification, although it will show up in the mentions menu of a user. Simple as that, it just attracts attention to the readers with highlight and mention history, but not disturbing them outright with a notification.
2.1) A nice bonus to this might be that it turns the new message bubble next to channel names and servers (the grey half-round) yellow, and then "@everyone" could have a red bubble.
2.2) Another idea might have it to have a different color highlight as well, to further emphasize on it being less urgent.
An idea I saw before that I do not like is having "@anyone" mention one random person in the server. I do not see any use for this, and if such a function would be added I'd rather see it labelled as "@random".
Yes yes and yes please
Definitely takes my vote. Sometimes when there's thing going on in our channel I would like to be pinged when certain words are mentioned. Recently switched from IRC over to discord (easier to have it in a browser tab than a separate app at work) and I really miss this
PRETTY PLEASE WITH SUGAR ON TOP!!!!!
Yes please this is crucial!
Yes, we need this!
Please add! Is there a timeline for implementation?

this is a must have >.>
how do we not have this already
Yeah, I want this. I'm a mod and I am sick of having to have every single message in a channel ding and pop up on my screen while I'm doing something, only so I can watch for mentions.
Definitely a function we need
+1 +1 Yes please!! I live right next to a pokestop and I want a notification everytime someone mentions "Metro Clock", or if someone mentions my current goal Pokemon aka 'Suicune', it would save soo much time scanning the chats.
This feature is one of the fundamental reasons I Installed better Twitch TV on twitch. Its such a simple tool but is unbelieveably handy to have, Expecially when you are in a role of power on a server.
Yes, please add this. Thank you
