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 ^^

    Would be nice to also be able to disable it if you're an admin. *hint hint*

    I sadly can't update the suggestion, however

    I agree with @marens101. We should be able to make and customize bubble like the bot bubble for any role, such as having a bubble that said "Mod" and make it orange.

    I'm thinking something like the Bot Bubble, and if we're going to do this for admins, allow the owners to do this for any role, so we could also have, for example, a Mod bubble, etc.

    I really like this idea since its helpful to know who is taking care of the server cause someone times only a role is quite confusing

    @jan358 roles get easily cluttered and some people just don't like mess. It's not hard to do, we don't want to do it

  • jan358 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please, Is that difficult to put a role separatly of the others named admins( And put it first of the list)

    Like that you can set up icons that show near the profile picture like the "Discord Staff Badge" but on the other side, so you can give icons to roles.

    i woud love it! :D

    because whit much people on the server it woud be an better way to identify ^^

    Adding icons to each role is a great idea, kinda like in teamspeak you have user group icons. I definitely want to see that.

  • ^stashy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Some servers, like mine, are based on equality for everyone - I don't like to be treated differently just because I created the server. Not having any identifiers helps with that. If Discord actually implements this, I really do hope they allow server owners to choose if they want to display this.
