How can we improve Discord?

Allow only admins/moderators to mention certain roles

For example, let's say there's a beta tester role. We don't want everyone to be able to mention that role, that would lead to tons of spam and abuse. Why not have an option to allow just admins to mention that role instead of everyone?

    This would be useful. When setting up my server I remember wanting to make the mod role @able, but not the admin role. However I wanted the mods to be able to @ the admins.

    Why not allow three options: Not mentionable, mentionable, mentionable by users with mention everyone perm

    Could we extend this option a bit further?

    Some people need to ping certain roles for events. (i.e. Tournament Organizer role, "Hey @Top Player, are you guys interested in my tournament that will be broadcast over twitch? Cash Prizes!")

    Can we have an option on a role to "Allow to ping all roles", while still having the option to turn ping of roles off for certain roles? (In the previous example, let's say we turned off pinging @Top Player to everyone, because members were exhausting them requesting game help)

    The main reason this is a hing is if players need to call an admin to a game server for help/ban.

    Exactly what many servers will need, will improve guild overall productivity and avoid any spammers

    Also add a option to disable mentioning @everyone and @here.

    I think its a good idea, especially if there is certain roles can mention other specific roles.
    Ex: everyone can mention @Role1 but not @Role2 and admins can mention both.
