How can we improve Discord?

Password Protected Servers

It would be a great if you could set a password for people to join the server. For example, if someone clicks the instant invite link, they are prompted for a password, which the owner can give them. I think this would stop random people joining the server if the invite link gets spread.

    You do realize that a password + invite can be spread just as easily as a normal invite?

  • Veltrex commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    "Create instant invite" has been an option you can give or take from roles for a very long time. So those that you don't want to have the option to spread a link, you should take that away...

    Also, if you make a link yourself and don't want it to be spread, make it only usable once, or twice if you want two people to join.

    A better version of what you suggest has been implemented for a very VERY long time, as such, this suggestion is by definition of the implementation already there, 100% useless.

    Some developer please close this!

    If I'm going to have private invites, I'll likely just send them to people I trust. (Irl friends, family, etc.)

  • meganathan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    There's a lot of invitation control, so this suggestion is now redundant. You can grant temporary membership, you can limit the number of invites per code, you can make invite links expire within an hour, you can disable roles from creating invites, etc. The code is already the password, pretty much.

    of all of the front page suggestions this is the only one i disagree with. invite codes are the password. use a bot for verification and/or prevent users from generate
    ing invites. this feature is unecessary.

  • Eoria commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Probably said already but owner can remove permission to create invites for everyone and only create invites with 1 use to give it to whoever he wants

  • Rsod commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    If invite link can get spreaded, why password can't? Assume invite link as a password. I'm against this option, waste of dev's time

    This can be done by using bots but with some over-complicated things, like writing password to a #password channel and making bot give anyone who types it in a rome 'MEMBERS' or something. But this would be better, heh. Upvote!

    there is already a function to limit how many people may join off of a invite code. just need to utilize that function

  • steel commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This seems like a great idea but if someone knows the password then it's all over, the password will be spread around. I think there should be an invite for specific people instead, like if you invite a certain person, only he or she can use the invite and can't give it to others. However, this is a great idea if nothing goes wrong.

    I think that they should employ whatever security measures their users ask for. Be it passwords or invite system, I myself would like the requirement for 2 factor auth to join.

    Omg just change the link... I can see why discord is taking so long at getting important features out, its because stupid suggestions like this are at the top...
