Add a server setting to disallow private messages to users

    I think the author of this suggestion means global for all users, because this is still a complication on big servers.

    This would be amazing as a role permission. Discord is having more and more issues with DM spammers and spambots. A role persmission for sending DMs to other server members would fix the issue completely.

    Each server should be able to manage their own verification system. There is not a single good reason why you cannot make a friend request to talk via dm - this is always possible. Yet it often happens that bots or malicious users join and send bad messages via dm. A time delay would do exactly nothing as the accounts can be prepared in advance. There has to be a way for server owners to regulate that and protect their members. Role permissions would work extremely well in my opinion.

    The way it is right now the only defense a server has against transgressions in pm, like gore or other nsfw images as well as phishing attacks, is to kick all new accounts the moment they join.

    This cannot go on any longer, larger communities are at their breaking point.

    I understand that allowing the users control of this seemed like a good idea when you first started working on Discord but there are unforeseen victims of this choice both users are effected as well as moderators.

    The best solution is to make this a role permission, this is literally the last unfixed security hole that allows spammers to do as they please.

    We have no means to keep growing while keeping our users safe.

    We are having similar issues, users receiving discord invites DMs, which leads our most naive and unsuspecting users to get "recruited" and brainwashed in enemy communities.

    We may have to shut down our discord server if this issue isn't fixed.

    I think having this as a role permission is a great idea, especially if a levelling system is ever natively implemented.

    As long as users can toggle DMs back on just for themselves, I am fine with this.

    HG's comment is why I feel it should be a role permission and not a server-wide permission. This way you can give the permission back to users after they validate to confirm they are not a bot. A server perm would simply be allow or dont. No control.

    Its also worth noting that this would only stop you from sending DMs to other members of that server only (unless the 2 users also share another server that does allow it). It wont prevent users from sending DMs at all or anything like that. You could ALWAYS bypass this proposed permission by adding each other as friends, too.

    As an owner of an 11,000 member discord and growing, this would greatly help everyone in our server and myself.

     

    Time and time again bots abuse the fact if you join a server you can message just about everyone on the server and spam them with invite links. Disabling open DMs by default would put a stop to ALL of this as the only current solution is to kick the bots before they can message anyone.

     

    Reporting these users to discord trust and safety does work, but it's a painfully slow process and only prevents them from focusing on more serious issues.

    This is an absolute necessity.

    We don't have enough moderation tools to protect our users, in general.

    This is something that's 100% needed for any large gaming community. A lot of smaller gaming communities tend to spam the larger ones to advertise themselves in an attempt to grow. I'm honestly surprised that there's no sort of default toggle feature to disable open PMs between server members, as botting is becoming more and more common as time goes by.

     

    While it won't stop 100% of the bot attacks (As bots can still spam text channels or add users to spam them then), it would stop a large majority of them, which is still better than nothing.

    Also disabling DM from servers is a user-side so each user has to do it on his own, but users do not listen to me while i want to protect them..

    Would be a very useful setting to have without completely limiting users

    100% on board. Would be nice to not have a bot spamming my pms.

    I agree 100%, it'd solve a lot of issues, while still allowing contact with specific members via DMs, if needed.

    I support a "fix" for this.
    Yesterday over 300 bots joined our server all with the "in new to discord. Say hi!" One account every 1-3 minutes for a duration of 12 hours straight...

    This should be implemented in 2 ways.  One is a role based permission ie "Give this user the ability to DM members of this server" and also an individual setting, ie in the "Server - Notification Settings" ie Prevent users from this Server to PM me".  The second setting is in case a server owner does not enable the first setting on their server 9ie allows DMs to non friends), but I can override this myself by blocking the server myself.  In either case, being friends with the person would override this setting.

    As a said in my suggestion, the solution would be simple: adding someone as a friend bypasses the DM restrictions. As far as multiple servers, if one server allows it, then the rest you share with the same person should too. Its up to the server owner to set things properly. If the server in question becomes a DM adbot spamfest, either tell the owner to change the settings, or leave the server. The idea is to help people, not limit them.

    To those searching for a solution still, use a captcha bot combined with discord's "table flip" setting, and an auto kick in UNDER 10 min if the user doesnt verify. Table flip mode prevents users from messaging OR DM'ING users for 10 min, or until they are granted a role. Have new users start with no roles or permissions, then grant a role after completing the captcha. The role,from the captcha will bypass table flip mode and allow the user to chat immediately after completing the captcha. After 9 (or less) minutes, have your bot of choice check for the verified role the captcha gives. If they dont have it, auto kick from the server.

    Ever since I set up this system I've had 0 issues with spambots. We went from literally hundreds or even thousands a day, to 0. It works. I personally use YAGPDB as my bot of choice, but it isnt the most simple to use. Less experienced users may want to search for alternatives.

    Go into server settings - moderation, and read the description for table flip mode. It prevents users from DMing other server members for 10 min, or until they get a role. By auto kicking in 9 min or less if they dont verify (and get a role), it resets that 10 min timer if they rejoin to try again. I've tested all of this very thoroughly.

    You cannot do this unless you hide discord IDs within server
    This is up to the individual server who they interact with outside your server.
    Not a very good request imho.

    As part of multiple gaming communities for different games, the issue needs to be addressed. The bigger Discord servers I am part of seem to be getting spammed nearly weekly and even some of the smaller ones are still targets. Almost always bot accounts and almost always spamming every members inboxes.

    I've been moderating a verified Discord guild with ~9k members for quite some time now.

    One of our biggest issues are these spam bots; moreover, we mostly encounter people sending links to "pay for sex in your local area" sites which is not great considering our community is for a game targeting a younger audience and also technically advertising an activity that is illegal in the US and most countries.

    I would love to see a system where they can only people if they have a role in the mutual guild or are friended, since we have a OAuth2 verification system that tracks connected accounts for roles/ban evasion purposes.
