  1. Option to mute notifications for messages from specific members of a server.

    Basically I'm in a group chat with my friends and one of them has a really frequent tendency to spam messages, but I don't want to mute the whole server except for @ notifications. It would be a neat QoL option to be able to mute messages/notifications from specific people in a server, but not to the extent of fully blocking them.

  2. 'Silent' Low priority messages

    Low priority messages, whisper it discretely. The opposite of an urgent message. Sometimes you want to message someone without disturbing them. Instead of hoping that their volume is down, why not be sure of it?

    This could mean that users only see the message next time they check discord, rather than a push notification or tone. This would work well with pms, but perhaps in server mentions too, if you don't want someone to miss something but its not urgent.

  3. More Markdown

    We have bold, italic, strikethrough, and underline, but how about text size and text color? Some fonts?

    Of course some permissions should be put in place so that users don't spam in size 9,999 comic sans. Maybe something like maximum text size for certain roles would work.

    Other Fun Ideas. Not all of these have to be added.
    -Horizontal Lines
    -Tables (Not useful for casual chat, but for a specific "server rules" message that users check often on someone's server, it would be helpful.)
    -Marquee/Move (Text that scrolls horizontally across the screen. No real purpose other than fun.)
    -Quoting (Similar…

  6. All Unread Messages Channel

    In Slack there is a dedicated channel where all unread messages appear. They are grouped by channel making it convenient to jump to the first unread message and mark a channel as read.

  7. Set Default Location For Images

    It would be nice if we could set where the file browser dialog defaults to when selecting a picture to upload.

  8. Setting to always hide Member List

    In the Windows 10 app the Member List on the right side of a channel is quite large when your window is sized down. When I have Discord docked to half of my screen, the list unnecessarily takes up 1/4 of the application.

    This wouldn't be much of a problem if I could keep it permanently hidden, but instead every time I reopen the application, it pops open again.

    I would like to have it always hidden rather than having to close it every single time I restart my computer.

  9. mention

    Have the icon for the application in the system tray to denote whether one has received a mention/message, or a non-muted channel has gotten new messages, or both. As it is, there's a blue circle in the top right, what I mean is to have a blue circle for new messages to subscribed channels, and something like a red circle in the top left to denote mentions or direct messages.

  10. Customisable Backgrounds

    It would be pretty nice if people had the option to upload their own images to use as backgrounds for the chat window, with options like "Tiled" or "Fill", etc.

    Example: https://gyazo.com/ff8e120060a2defd7b28edef291a204e

  11. I would like a "lock channel" button"

    I very often move a channel by accident and it can be very annoying sometimes. So can we please get a "Lock channel" button. That would be awesome!

    I noticed that you guys were offering jobs. I was wondering if Discord hired people right out of college?

  13. Event Planner with Global Clocks (Great for planning streams, videos & more!)

    Events Planner can be its own Tab like Voice Chats and Text or can be merged with the text chat (but could get lost or unnoticed). This can be used on a friend level scale to help plan meetings in game together for video/streaming recordings. Or a server level scale where it can be used for promotional events or announcements of who won a monthly prize?

    -I'd recommend also adding a repeated event option too (ie every Monday will be this day at this time).
    -I'd also like to see the correct timezone for each person so no confusion is…

  14. Window Dragging

    Hey guys it would be really if you could drag direct messages into separate windows for example I wanna talk to Bob and see his direct messages but I also want to see my server I'm in as well so could you allow the user to drag the contact out of discord and into a separate window so i could see both chats at the same time. Thanks please add

  15. Answering Machine

    If the status is set to "idle" or "do not disturb" and someone calls you, you can record a message with a beep at the end, as an answering machine!
    And then the message will be available temporarily to check out!
    DoubleG: I'll call my friend Snoppa!
    _snoppa status = idle_
    Calling...
    Snoppa: wut m8 don't call me say some crazy things after the beep
    _beep_
    DoubleG: eyyy call meh
    _Snoppa status: green_
    Snoppa: ayyy whazzup

  16. Windowed Audio Controls

    I would like the ability to have windowed audio controls like Skype, so I would not have to need to open the Discord window to adjust basic audio settings such as mute, deafen and disconnect.

    I've created a mockup for a visual representation of my idea, I imagine that this would be an optional setting in the Discord settings.

    Controls Window: http://i.imgur.com/z2KbOHN.png
    Mockup in Windows: http://i.imgur.com/05ZDFQd.png

    In the mockup the control window is 30px wide.

  17. Enable Streamer Mode when Steam software like Mirilis action is Opened

    Discord needs a option to recognise Mirilis Action as a Streamer Software, no matter where it is launched (could be a steam app)

  18. Priority Speaking Configuration

    Add an option to change the speaking priority of a role or user on the server, so that they can speak over others when there are multiple members speaking the voice chat. Allow Server Admins and other high ranked roles to change this option.

  19. New emoji shortcuts are too accidental

    Anytime I type `Punky Town` in Discord it's replaced with this:
    https://hackybox.com/web-shared/ShareX/Discord_2016-12-25_18-49-47.png

    This only started happening in the most recent update (around 2016-12-25)

    Usually emoji need colons (:emoji:) around their short names, but these new ones just replace regular words. This feels a bit too automatic to me.

  20. stop video

    it's cool you can play youtube, gif's and Vine in the app, but we need some way to control vine video's and other videos that don't stop.
    it would be nice if we could choose to loop vine videos or play once. or at least be able to stop the video. mute is not good enough.
