  1. Picarto integration

    We've already got Twitch integration, so why not Picarto as well?

    https://picarto.tv/

    While Discord may have been designed for gaming, it's definitely used by more than just the gaming community. We've got Patreon integration already as well, so why not add a popular streaming service used by artists? Just like with Twitch, simply being able to show you're streaming and link to the stream page would go a long way!

    I even got memed on by @discordapp and drew a picture for this, make it happen guys.

  2. Vacation Mode (Out of Office)

    Even though it may be terrifying. There are times when we will not have access to Discord or any internet to begin with. Usually this has to do with being on vacation, moving, or something else.

    Despite telling everyone about your plans to go to Wumpton Island, inevitably people will not get the message or forget.

    This mode fixes this by automatically replying to DM's and mentions with a prewritten message. Your status also changes "On break" with a light blue color, this status is treated like any offline user.

  4. Video Calling Quality Settings

    I like to see quailty settings for discord with video calling and screen-sharing. What I'm suggesting is that discord should add some quality settings for video calling and screen-sharing as bandwidth can be a problem for people with bad internet or good internet. With so much bandwidth going in between people from up to down, it can cost a lot for people, data or not. So I suggest with image - Quality settings for video calling

  5. Allow only admins/moderators to mention certain roles

    For example, let's say there's a beta tester role. We don't want everyone to be able to mention that role, that would lead to tons of spam and abuse. Why not have an option to allow just admins to mention that role instead of everyone?

  6. Cover Banners for Community Channels

    Name of Idea: Cover Banners for Community Channels

    Short Description: Allowing users to upload a cover image for their community channel.

    General Description: A cover image for channels could add more flavor to community channels. Basically the idea is for admins to upload an image that would blend with the chat background. The image/ banner should remain in fixed position so it remains present all the time. Only elements that will scroll are the text messages.

    Example 1: https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/342712580000972801/342713367276027914/testingimage.png?width=1006&height=566

    Example 2: https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/342712580000972801/342713475153526787/orbitimage.png?width=1006&height=566

  7. Reduce white-space between channel categories

    The new channel categories are a great way to organize channels, however the large areas of wasted space around then cause originally short channel listings to become much larger for very little gain.
    It would be great if this white-space could be reduced (even just a little) to save space on smaller screens.

  8. An option to freeze your server in case of a raid.

    An option to freeze your server in case of a raid or emergency.
    This technically means a temporary off switch to your server (turning off any sort of activity: messages, kicking, banning, removing or adding roles... just anything except for the owner), which allows you to have time to find out who was the raider and fix the issue before it's too late.

  10. role category

    See since I've heard that Channel Category has been coming out and now i have seen it in Canary, i was wondering if you guys would do a Role Categories like the channels. It would be useful for a server with a big amount of roles. I haven't thought of how to do like the level of permissions like it is now but i wouldn't be surprised what you, discord devs, think of because you guys are astonishing. You guys never disappoint in what you guys do new to the servers aspect!

  11. Add colors to the text messages.

    Basically the message modification as: _hey_ **OK**, etc, but it will be some words selectioned for do a message with the wanted color:

    Example: (#ffa3e9) PINK PINK PINK (#default) hey

    Between the parentheses you place the hexadecimal color, and when you write #default It's the default color that haves the Discord messages. You could also add italic letters with "_" and bold font with "" As it is already implemented in Discord

    Example: (#ffa3e9) **PINK** _PINK_(#default) hey

    This will be something amazing for do more colorful the messages in Discord, or something in the Private Messages, but I thinked it…

  12. Discord is not only for gamers! Change Discord's description

    All-in-one voice and text chat for gamers, developers, friends, family and literally everyone that's free, secure, and works on both your desktop and phone. Stop paying for TeamSpeak servers and hassling with Skype. Simplify your life.

    This is how it should be

  13. Solution to 2500+ member mobile push notification limit

    Currently discord disables mobile push notifications once a server reaches 2500+ members. Only mentions and tags create notifications beyond that point.

    Please raise this limit to 5000+ members.

    A better solution would be to add an option for a premium server that would remove this limit. Users that manage servers of this size typically wouldn't mind paying a reasonable fee to preserve mobile push notifications.

  16. Increase emoji limit

    I want you to increase emoji limit, because it is hard to embody all emoji ideas on the popular server ith lots of users. Lots of people create servers where a large quantity of emojis would be rather useful, but amount of emojis is limited to 50. I'm not asking you to do the amount of emojis to unlimited, I just want it to be increased to 100 or more.

  17. Add the Offline list on sidebar when a server has 100+ members

    Or, otherwise put, don't make it disappear when reaching 100+ members.

    For me, an admin in three servers, a mod in a few others and a member of various Discord servers, losing this list is just dumb and annoying, and it doesn't affect performance at all for me. (see the last paragraph for me elaborating on this)

    Make the function toggle-able or lose it. I want to be able to see offline members in Indie Game Utopia (main server I am admin'ing in.) and others to see it as well, in a server that's made for small indies to talk…

  18. A new "video" channel type, for server-wide video share

    We have voice channels, text channels, DM Channels, and Group DM's.

    Video is coming to discord, to DM channels, to Group DM channels, but not to servers.

    If servers had "Video" channels with their own permissions like, "connect to channel", "send video", "send audio", "view video", "hear audio", etc, that would be so useful.

    Think of the possibilities, bots can play videos and everyone can watch them, bots can control what plays.

    We could have stats channels, like say a tournament is being ran, you could make a bot live show the tournament/game, with stats, information, just like watching a…

  19. Make 'admin' role non-movable by 'moderator' role

    I mean, I don't want the moderators to be able to move me to another voice room on my server. I've tried it with a friend, who had only the moderator role, and he was able to move me to another channel, even if the admin role, which I had, is higher in the role list than the moderator.

  20. Change the Default Colour

    Ever wanted to change the default colour on discord? I think it would be a brilliant idea if the people at discord could make it so its possible to change the default colour to whatever they wish, sometimes it can be hard reading grey and I think it needs to be optional.
