How can we improve Discord?

Not show "typing" when invisible

The client should not send the "typing" event when the current mode is Invisible

Often when you are invisible you sometimes hit a key and it shows the whole server you're here for a few seconds even when you don't plan on sending a message. Invisible mode gets ruined because of that doesn't it?

    If it were an optional thing to turn it off or not when invisible then I would support this. My friends and I use Invisible when we do not want a lot of people contacting us at once, but still like to see each other's typing.

    @Forkinator Even if you post in private chat it shows that you're typing in the other groups you're in. This is a serious bug. Several times I have been chatting with a friend and someone in my group asked who I was talking to!

    This needs to be implimented. There are times when I am invisible and only want to speak to one person and accidentally start typing in the lobby instead of private message. Sure I could be more careful, but this is still a QOL improvement imo. Even if you accidentally hit 1 key when discord is in view, it will say you are typing.

    Ummmmm...Below the gray dot it would say:
    You won't appear online but you'll still have full access to all of Discord.

    This also applies when in voice channels
    You appear there even while Invisibile

    i think there are more important things to care about (mainly when it comes to moderation) that "so they dont see me typing when i'm invisible" afterall if you are typing a message and send it they will know you aren't actually offline. What is the point onf making a feature like that then?

    I think its will be better if show typing after the first word you type ! just because sometime people waiting for your answer and its not good !

    Suggestion: send the typing event, but make it not visible on the GUI, so bots can still see it

    i would prefurr it to be where u cant send messages or use VC while invisible, and i for one would probably quit using discord if this is added even tho im admin in some servers

    @SweetThing: Just because you don't want to be talked to by some people doesn't mean you don't want to talk to anyone.

    Please disable sending messages and joining voice channels while invisible. I try and go invisible and then I stay in a voice channel and send a couple messages and everyone knows I'm here!
