How can we improve Discord?

Add the Offline list on sidebar when a server has 100+ members

Or, otherwise put, don't make it disappear when reaching 100+ members.

For me, an admin in three servers, a mod in a few others and a member of various Discord servers, losing this list is just dumb and annoying, and it doesn't affect performance at all for me. (see the last paragraph for me elaborating on this)

Make the function toggle-able or lose it. I want to be able to see offline members in Indie Game Utopia (main server I am admin'ing in.) and others to see it as well, in a server that's made for small indies to talk about their games and stuff isn't it a good thing if they can see who's in there, if a developer they know or like is in there? And with many members being from different timezones, the online users at the same time isn't a lot, so people might think it's a small server.

More on the performance issues thing:
I have been in servers with like 600+ online members, no loss of performance, not even a slight bit and any loss I might have had was if I had other programs open that used the CPU, not Discord. I think it's just a lame excuse to take the feature away and a few months later it will be added as a Brand New Feature™ for their paid Nitro program. I hate to sound cynical but I think the Discord devs are lying about this. Other moderators in my server also think so, and it also bothers them to not have the offline members list, and having to do like 5 clicks to see the member list in Server Setting is inconvenient, on mobile especially, and completely pointless as I stated before. I have seen threads with dozens of people almost unanimously agreeing on this issue as well. Those people also stated no loss of performance when many more members are online as well. Just leave the list no matter how many members or make it an on/off option.

    I also like the option to show the list of Offline members please. Or at least to show the list of all members with a specific role...

    If one reads the comments on the update news of the D+ Apps closely the function is back !
    Thanks and good job Discord !

    Can confirm, all of the big servers I'm part of now show their offline members...

  • TsubeAika commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would want the toggleable one. Discord added in the list for servers but not LARGE servers but TBH, it is annoying...

    I just noticed an offline list on a server I'm on (125 in the offline list) plus a whole bunch of online people.... New feature? I can't seem to find much about it at all? Discord twitter so far haven't said anything (at time of this message)

    Voted.

    Checked on this because recently I've noticed servers with 400+ members with an offline list?

    None of my servers including the 3k+ members one hasn't changed a bit?
    Checked the settings, nothing new.

    I think they just added it for 100+ servers. But it’s still doesn’t appear on very big servers (maybe 300+)

    I administer a server of just over 100 members, and in the past hour or so I noticed I'm able to see the offline users list. Was this just added? If so I'm really glad because I hated having no offline users list.

    Can anyone else confirm their findings?

    wee need this too. keep voting i have given my post. Cause sometimes i cant see who left the channel or who's in the channel and many people keep themselves invisible even if they are online

    Totally appreciate you for bringing this to notice. Today my law of attraction server crossed 100 💯 and I couldn't find any offline member list. Actually many members prefer to stay offline due to work and other things. This would be a great feature. Thanks

    It's perfectly fine to show 5000 online users at once, but not okay to show 50 online and 50 offline users. There should definitely be no issue showing the offline list with 500 members on a server. If it is a performance issue, then have an expand button at the bottom of the userlist that a user can toggle it at will.
