How can we improve Discord?

More status options than "Playing"

What I think would be cool is if we would be able to set our status to other things than just "playing *game*". So what I would like to see added is that when choosing your status (Online, Inactive, Do not disturb), there would be a drop down menu where you can choose things like "Cooking *food*, Watching *movie*, Having a *activity*. If no game is being played the choosen status would show instead of "playing game".

Here are some ideas that could be featured:

Cooking "pancakes"

Watching "Rouge One"

Having a "party"

At "lunchbreak"

Working with "After Effects"

Creating "games"

Looking to play "Battlefield 1"

This is what it could look like: http://imgur.com/a/0iSgh

    Maybe add “Watching” “Doing” “At ___(Location)” or make it so you can write anything there

    LOVE IT! maybe make it so we can edit the status to what we please like how we can edit game titles or programs. For example, I can rename my google chrome to "youtube" and I can rename my status to "watching"

    Love this idea. I want to be able to say that im watching youtube. not that i'm playing youtube

    I like the idea but showing what website someone is looking at could become a privacy issue. Some people are fine showing what game their playing but when it comes to what website their viewing I could see some issues there.

    Great request though :D

    We should be able to display custom status like "sleeping", "doing homework", "at work", "outside" and so on.

  • Clen23 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    We should add more details to the "playing game" status, and have it not always start with "playing".

    For instance, instead of "playing Google Chrome", we would have " browsing [name of the website] ".

    I think the statuses should be more easily customisable. personally, I would happily pay money for this feature, so adding this to nitro would be amazing.

    I would like to be able to display messages that I set up separately when I was not playing a game.

    Allow people to change "Playing.." to "Working.." also.
    Since Discord is also for game developers. And this makes it so people know you're working on something instead they now sometimes think you're playing it. Example a update or new game.

    Am talking about the status. (Settings > Games > Game Activity)

    Not sure by what topic this fits.

    This would probably go under API, Plugins, and Bots, but this is also a good choice. I'd love to see this implemented.

    Default all new added aplications is treated like a game.

    it would be good if the first line were also going to edit.

    examples:

    now it is like this:

    Playing: Photoshop
    Playing: Counter Strike 1.6
    Playing: AIMP
    Playing: Google Chrome
    Playing: messenger
    Playing: YouTube
    Playing: Opera
    Playing: Notepad++

    I need to edit that "playling" to get the:

    Using: Photoshop
    Playing: Counter Strike 1.6
    Listening on: AIMP
    Searching in: Google Chrome
    Talking on: messenger
    Watching: YouTube
    Searching in: Opera
    Writing in: Notepad++

    and more.
