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 ^^

    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.

    Or similar to bots just have Adm in a box colored to the admin role next to their name

    If you could just add the option to add an icon to any role instead, custom or selected from a list..
    That'd be great.

    Since servers owners have a gold crown, maybe add a silver crown for admins, and a bronze crown for mods

    Why create an ultra girly feminine crown for the server owners when they already had an option to create themselves their own group and set it aside from everyone else?

    +1 for making the icons optional! Most of the time people know who the server owner is. And if they don't they are free to ask. So optional would be awesome ..!

    This started showing up this morning. There really needs to be an option to hide it. We use our discord server for communication within a small gaming community. The crown is not appropriate in our setting.

    +1 for making the icons optional! I'd love to maintain the illusion of equality on my close friends server

    Can you make it optional? I don't want to be all sassy with a crown next to my name.
