How can we improve Discord?

Option to suppress @everyone and @here for single text channels

I think it would be nice to have an option to suppress @everyone and @here for text channels so it's the same way that suppress works for servers as a whole.

It can be a little bit frustrating getting @everyone / @here messages from a general chat that you don't want to mute, but you still want to see important announcements on the server from another channel or vice versa.

Just to avoid getting excess red numbers / notifications where possible.

Perhaps it could be part of muting the channel or a separate option all together. Either works well in my eyes :)

    Members of any servers should have the option to suppress mentioning the role since it bypasses @everyone/@here and all new servers just keep mentioning roles.

    I only really found out that the Suppress @everyone and @here option exists by stumbling upon it. In general, as a server owner, I'm pretty afraid to use either to notify people of important announcements because I'll *always* get angry responses of "don't @ me bro".

    I think it would help reduce that if the notifications themselves had a "Don't want to see this? Click <here> to suppress notifications on this server" or something to that effect that would bring them to the notification settings for that server.

    Current supress options for mentions are limited because they can be bypassed, which makes it near useless

    If theres a server that were spamming @everyone, @here, etc, I shouldn't still get the pings if I've already decided to supress them. If I have the server muted and every possible mention disabled, there should be no reason for me to still get the notifications. Its ability to be bypassed is basically limiting the user of a basic feature that decided which notifications to recieve and not to recieve.

    So I wanted to suggest an option, or an improvement to the current option that lets me disable the mentions, with no other say. Because it gets out of hand sometimes.

    I agree 100%, I was Googling how can I do this but it appears I can't.

    This would be extremely useful. There are a few servers where I'm only interested in one or two channels out of many. As it is now, I can leave the @ notifications on and get pinged every single time someone uses them on any channel, most of which are useless to me, or I have to miss all of them. Being able to suppress this on some channels of a server, but not others, would be very helpful. Thanks!

    Yes please add this. I have been waiting for this for 3 years now. I have multiple gaming group channels with different games and I want to supress @everyone on the channels that I am not interested in but keep mentions active on the channels of my interest.

  • RedRevReyn commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This would be great, honestly. Personally I like having a text channel where I mess with the bot settings and all that, so there's no need for notifications to get pushed out for that. I also added the DiscordRPG bot for one of my users and we also don't need notifications pushed out for that either.

    Yea - and pls split here and everyone. Like, if we're calling for game matches or twitch streams, no one cares if you missed it (everyone shouldnt be used), but here SHOULD.

  • JCat commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Per the FAQ and user support, neither muting nor setting a channel notifications to "nothing" will mute @everyone and @here notifications from that channel. We can suppress all everyone and @here notifications from a server, but not a specific channel in the server.

  • tipoima commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    For people who say you can do it:
    If you mute the channel, notification settings for the channel are automatically disabled, including the ability to ignore @everyone/@here. What we want, to the ability to do BOTH. Seriously, why can't we mute everything at once?

  • Shinji257 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    You can do this as a user. Just go into notification settings. You can set notifications per channel if you wish.

  • elizabethae commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Have an option to suppress @everyone/@here for the text channel of your choosing instead of the whole server. There are channels I mute and yet I still get notifications for because @everyone/@here is still enabled.

    Example: We have a gaming channel so that people can group up and play games together except, I don't game. But I still get pop-ups notifying me that I have a message when instead I get a message from someone who just wants to game. The server is important to me, I cannot just suppress @everyone/@here because there are important things I cannot miss. The channel is already muted.
