Allow only admins/moderators to mention certain roles

    I have experience with this problem all the time, but I would suggest making it so only certain roles can tag certain roles. Regarding my server, the people we want tagging certain roles, do not have admin or mod.

    this should be implemented ASAP

    the tagging for roles is pretty nonsense without this feature

    anyone can tag a role or nobody, this is damn stupid

    I agree with Francis. That would solve the problem brought up by Nelly and would give admins more hierarchy control.

    This would be perfect if implemented along with: https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360029972692-Simplified-and-Advanced-Role-Hierarchy

    For example, I manage the Joe Rogan discord. We have a role for people that want to be notified when Joe goes live. In order to accomplish this, we have to quickly toggle the role as mentionable, mention the role, then go back and untoggle that setting. Would be much easier if we just had a toggle that only allowed moderators to @mention a custom role instead of just ALL or NONE.

    @Aniky

    I think you didn't understood what we are talking about. We are talking about this:

    If you create a new role, you can only decide if ALL or NONE is allowed to ping the role. We would like Role1 and Role2 to be able to ping Role3. But other people don't.
    It's not about the "everyone" role.

    Barely found this. There was a page on feedback subdomain, but now it's gone. https://feedback.discordapp.com/forums/326712-discord-dream-land/suggestions/19469011-allow-only-admins-moderators-to-mention-certain-ro?category_id=144477&page=3&per_page=20

    I completely agree. This is important functionality and can't be dealt via bots.

    This has been on since 2016, the release of @mention roles... When will discord do this?

    > If you don't want to be ping, make it clear to your members (by writing a rule in a "rules" channel for example). 

    The entire point is to prevent abusers, not the people that follow the rules (or we wouldn't need this).

    I host a Discord server of 14,000 people. 1 role may contain a TON of people inside. We have about 75 total roles over the years.

    It is useful for both mods and bots to do this. Currently, bots have to set permission to allow the role to be pingable, ping them, then turn it off. 

    Then let's say our stream is going live, and we want to ping hundreds of people that's in the streamer role, but also want to announce it publicly to encourage others that may not yet have the role to join:

    Same thing. We have to allow the role to be pingable. Ping. Then turn it off again. 

    It's extremely tedious. This feature would mostly be useful for larger servers. EXTREMELY useful. I've been wanting it for ages. Ah... it'd lower so much stress. You'd get the spammers that come in and try to @ping every single role possible before getting banned. Sure, they get banned, but always after they ping a ton of roles.

    @Aniky Facepalm, when will people read comments fully.

    Certain custom-made roles, not the @everyone or @here role.

    YES. PLEASE. We need this SO badly. It would help so so so much with efficiency. Also, it would reduce the likelihood of a raid lasting too long. This is extremely important, really hope Discord is actually implementing this

    The best solution will be a simple patch who improve a role call system.
    First option will be "allow a mention for this role" (toggle button).
    Second option will be "select roles from the list which has privileges to mention".

    The role mentions function came out on 2016. And now we are in 2019, many discord servers have grown much much larger.

     

    In a large community, @role can be really useful and also frustrating.

    We need to @ a smaller group of members rather then just @here or @everyone.

    But there will always be someone typo and end up tagging a role accidentally. #facepalm

    And right now we don't have anyway to prevent it.

     

    Please actually review and redesign the role mentions function with feather permission settings.

    I think all of you misunderstood the OP. He wants a toggle for only moderators to @mention this role, instead of just having it available for anyone or nobody. @hiccups @aniky

    This has over 3000 users agreeing/upvoting everyone and their mother wants this. If you guys add this it will be very very appreciated on discord worldwide because I just think of 1k ways this can be useful I've been trying to do this for a while but nothing works. Please just allow this. The whole community will love this as a feature just add it, Its alot of coding but surely be appreciated.

    Please do not mix new ideas with ideas from others. If you have another idea, please create your own topic.
    What you are talking about has already been suggested at the link below. Please post there. Thank you.

    Absolutely. This is a very good idea.

    It will allow us to open up notification settings within a server and allow users to CHOOSE pings(example: only server news, new content, do-not-disturb, etc)

    Please make this a reality discord!

    We have 14k members on our server. If I'm about to make an announcement, I need to set permissions to allow ANYONE to ping >> Type really fast (copy+paste) >> Send my announcement >> turn off the role ping super fast. If someone notices I'm typing -- even with copy paste -- or notices the announcement fast (since they get pinged, after all), they can @ping up to 14k people if they do it before I turn off the perm!

    This is extremely ghetto and this should absolutely not be the way to ping roles from a mod perspective.

    If not just allowing Administrator to override an unticked 'Allow anyone to mention @role' maybe perhaps a separate 'Override no mention @role' permission too!

    It's true that it can be helpful to work around it by using conditional mention deletion.

    The problem is, of course, by the time the bot reads the message, the ping has already gone out to the server's members with the role(s) that were meant to be protected.

    At this point, while we wait for the feature to get some attention, the best thing to do is flat-out make the roles unmentionable until necessary, and then reverting the roles' to their original state.

    Two threads were redirected here, and, again, this one is not the same as those two.

    But... since they point me to this thread, I really want to have not only Suppress @everyone and @here for servers, but also Suppress @allroles for per-channel bases.

    My MMO Guild have daily contests with prizes and stuff. They use @guildmate role. Since i am not interested in those contests, i don't do them, but yet, everytime i have alot of notifications thrown at me because i am @guildmate.

    Muting certain channel, doesn't not mute @guildmate notifications. Creating another role for guild-wide contests is bad idea, since we will have to do very big poll.

    I absolutely agree that this should be implemented. Recently a big server was raided, every role was mentioned, because I value being able to mention people in roles to inform them of something specific just to them, not the entire server. And it would be inefficient and stupid to just make announcement channels for each individual role, because a) it takes up space, and b) it would become a hassle if people in different roles need to be told the same thing
    At the absolute minimum, people with the Administrator permission should be able to mention any role. And here's a problem; this post was made 5 months ago, and has over 3 thousand upvotes. Have we had updates since then? Yes. Have they added this? No. We've gotten mobile indicators and spoilers. Come on discord team, add this already please

    I don't understand, why is this not a thing yet? This feature is very important to us, man. Without this, admins and moderators have to swtich the "Allow anyone to @mention this role" option back and forth back and forth again to just mention specific group of people.
