How can we improve Discord?

Admin Icon - Give Admins a better way to identify themselves

The idea is that admins could have a small bubble (an icon) added to their profile picture (or name, for the compact view) to quickly display that this user is an admin, withing the actual chat without looking at the member list.

The bubble could be either a custom picture in a very small resolution (hence it being an icon) or a preset (colors, forms, e.t.c.) which can be activated or deactivated for the server. It could be displayed either at the top left, top right, bottom left or bottom right of the profile picture.

I ever felt like it could be easier to quickly identify who has admin rights and who not, especially on big servers where, if you are in a hurry, you may or not may be able to instantly see exactly that. It is just a small addition, the fact that it could be activated or deactivated within the server settings also means that it is no forced change. So a pure addition ^^

    an awesome idea, I'm certain that discord are going to have it in their upcoming patches... This has to happen ASAP to show the power of admins in the server too, and this icon give personality.. and It is important for people to know that this guy is reliable (in big servers for sure)... if he/she sends a link about something everyone would know that this guy is trusted by the server's owner. and so on

    Admins don't need any more reminders that they have power over users in there servers. The crown symbol is plenty enough.

    I don't find it very useful as it would look the server staff a bitt. narcissistic? I don't know, it's just my opinion!

    For An Easier Way To Recognise Different Staff
    Owners - has a star symbol
    Admins - has a Blue Orb
    A Custom Tag:
    (Just a Example)
    #admin - [name of user]

    I think this can be a very useful Idea for Very Large Servers/Communities

    We do our own. Server staff have a specific emoji before their name. even when we switch nicknames, we keep the sparkle (the emoji we use) and members are forbidden from copying it.

    People can see in the chat who is a modmin at a glance, while we dont have to have a staff role color (in our server its better to be able to take on the colors of short-term event roles)

    Admins already have roles, one could change their color, and now you know that the player is the server admin

    A admin tag so like with bots how it says ‘BOT’ next to there name when a person in a server has the administrator permission granted it displays there name with a blue ‘ADMIN’ label next to there name.

    Hey, it would be cool to have a Silver crown for the owner of the server to put on people so they could be easily identified as admins or mods?

    Hence is your answer:

    Apparently the Server Owner crown will show only when there are not administrator roles.(that means roles without the "Administrator" permission).

  • Dinosaur commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Since a few weeks server owners got small crowns next to their name with a ''Server Owner'' discription.

    It would be cool if server moderators could also have such icons next to their name, premade by Discord or selfmade uploaded icons with a custom discription set by the server owner. (Same size as the owner crown)

    Moderators wouldn't require a role for this, but will still be recognized by other users. Icons can also be toggled on/off by the server owner.
