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.
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

So that's will be great. You don't need to give special role. I am have many members and need to talk only with 1 or group 2-5.
It will be easyer to use password than role!
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...
Bots can easily be used for that purpose, can't they? As an example, you could have people PM the pass to the bot so they're given a role which lets them access other channels. I'm sure it can be done fairly easily.
Single-use invites and timed invites are a thing.
Why should people not also just spread the passwords?^^

Why not make single-use invites? This is just adding an unnecessary step to a really simple way to join a server.
Well, you can just create a single-use one-person invite link, and give those out one at a time to trusted people.
bots are necessary as a workaround if you want this, which shouldn't be necessary
No, that wouldn´t solve the problem.
The password could be spread with the invite link.
We could need a function, that makes the server (and members of it) invisible for everyone, who has no role.
Just remove the ability of people creating instant invite links and disabling the link if one has been generated, none of the less, a fun and interesting idea.
I think this would be a very good idea. i have a server that is a friends only server where me and my friends hang out and this morning i had it raided by 4 people sending porn links and spamming @/everyone. smh..
The thing is, they could just spread the password in the same message.
<Function to lock servers, so only you with a PIN/password/whatever authentication method you can access.>
Just disable the link and generate a new one. The server admin can do this. It would be exactly like changing the password.
