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 can already do this. Send invite, and you need a role to get access to channels. You send the password to an admin and they give the role.
make it an option for the owner to password protect invites.
here is a scenario:
defaults: cannot add or remove invites
trusted users: can make invites, but has a use limit of 5 per invite and has a forced password the owner sets
staff: unlimited access to invites
If the link can be spread so can the password. If you want something like this you would instead want something like one-time-use invite codes (Which are possible to develop).
I know you don't want to be like Teamspeak, and I get it, but really, hear me out.
We can use password protected channels and it would be so awesome! So we don't have to manually add them to a role that can join.
There are quite a few TeamSpeak servers that still use TeamSpeak just because of Password Protect, because a few servers I know on are on a game called Garry's Mod, and it's for Star Wars RP.
They used TeamSpeak as it has password protect, so they don't have to manually add them to a role that can join, and then if they leave a certain base or platform, a Moderator doesn't have to remove them.
Please think about it Discord! If you added this, you'd officially beat them.
like Sal said, this is literally unecessary, you just need to set the default @everyone role to have no permissions so that only those who are "welcome" can be given a role to use the server/see the channels.

Downvote cause yeah, as others have said, passwords can be sent around too. This is where making a URL one time use was made for.

That's why there's invite link settings
This is why you have roles though isn't it? Make it so @everyone can't do anything except see your welcome screen, and then assign a member role to grant access upon verification of your choosing?
I agree with notGoronado how the password can be spread. How about when they click the invite, it simply asks the administrators of the server whether or not the user should be allowed in.
This is so useless.
The password can be spread too.
Now the password is spread. Congratulations, god think for a minute!
And what if password spreads?

one time invites, and theres bots for this
use a one-time invite ez
Instead of an invite link spreading, an invite link and a password will spread. How is this an improvement?
I don't agree with "just use an invite link ITS the password hurrhurr" what if someone embeds my server into a forum I don't want them embedding, or I ban someone and they give out the link to a shitload of friends within five minutes. There are a lot of reasons this would be useful, idk if I will use it but upvoted
I mean, aren't invite links kinda like a password for the servers or something. You can just share an instant invite link that gets used once in which it gets expired and then no one else can use it or you can add time to when the link expires.
