How can we improve Discord?

Track who joined through what invite.

Raids happen all the time. Public Discord server owners and staff team members know this. Sometimes raiders join from advertisements, and sometimes they are invited from users in the server. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to see where these raiders joined from?

I would like a feature that would allow us to see what users joined on each invite, along with other sources, like the widget.

The way I imagine this to function would be that people with the permission may go into the instant invites page, then click on the invite that they wish to see who joined from it. List the users in pages of 10 users per page, which then can be flipped, sorting by who joined first as a descending list.

This feature would really help rid servers of raiders, and prevent further raids from happening. People who hide in servers just to invite raiders will then begin to think twice about inviting their friends to raid.

I know many people would like this idea implemented, so please share this around so that Discord becomes aware of this, and they realize that it's an essential feature to keep the platform safe.

This idea has been talked about every now and then. Let's make sure they listen this time.

    What would happen if they join via the main invite? Then the raiders couldn't be tracked. Wouldn't work.

    After having checked the discord API, there is no direct method of checking what invite link were used by the joining user. Therefor this feature can at current not be implemented by a bot.

    (There are though ways of fudging around this by saving the list of invites before an after someone joined and checked what invite link incremented, and through that know wherefrom someone joined.)

    But it would still be nice if discord just gave the information of what invite link (or what user invited them) each user used to join the server. Both through the API, but also through the member page in the server settings.

    So an API example for the feature would be:
    member.invite.link
    Or for the author of the link
    member.invite.author

    How about limit who is able to create invites to people you trust? You *can* see who makes invites, how many times they were used. If there is a raid directly following that invite creation, you have the culprit.

    Seems pointless to me.

    This isn't Garry's Mod, Discord develops Discord, not other people. Bots are cool and all, but they aren't made to do Discord's work.

    The server join message was added by Discord even though bots could do that. What's the problem with Discord adding this?

  • Maersko commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It's so cringey of how many people to every discord suggestion says a bot can do that, yeah well, it aint fucking third parties job to develop Discord and require you to run third party bots.

    There's a bot who does it? I certainly don't care, no hard feelings. This isn't part of Discord so he's suggesting it FOR DISCORD, not FOR BOTS. Also what if he doesn't want many bots on his server because if the number of bots is higher than the number of people...yeah...

    There is a bot called Invite Manager that lets people see their active invites and how many they have.

    I think it would be enough with adding it to the Audit Log. I'd also like it to accessible through the API, along with an event for invite creation.

    Bots are things of such things. You cannot just say "we have a bot for that", because NATIVE SUPPORT is better and really good when done correctly. We only have bots because we need things Discord doesn't have. Bots also serve as a a more personal item, but there are some features needed more so natively. +1

  • Chew commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    As with my suggestion, bots can easily do this, but we're asking for NATIVE SUPPORT here. Cool, bots can do it, so? What about it? Add a useless bot for one feature just for a simple thing discord can add itself? No, this is for discord itself suggestions, not "I'm looking for a bot that does x", thanks appreciate ya.

  • Nico123o commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yeah, as the others said, i think there's already ways to do this, but I do think this is cool if it is made by Discord themselves, as it'd be more official - You have my vote. :)

  • Ankial commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Dude there is a bot called "INVITE MANAGER" you can set it all up and the bot will tell you who got invited to the server and by whoms invite did they came from. disregard this suggestion lol, the things discord don't have. the bots have them
