Be invisible on one server but online on another.

    I would prefer to recommend Discord over Slack to my startups for a number of reasons, but this *specific issue* stops me from doing it. Need to have privacy settings for each organization, period, or Discord can't be a work tool. Shame, since it would be a great one.

    Upvoting. I'm in servers with friends(IRL and online), as well as a couple with co-workers, including at least one member of upper management. I'd prefer work not know when I am gaming(I tend to run simulations in the background while I work for amusements) or even online, but I would like my non-work friends to know I am online if they wanna BS.

    Upvoting seems pointless. This already has enough votes, so it seems the "powers that be" at Discord have already decided not to implement this.

    If they do not implement this will be another reason to switch to the new teamspeak when he get out of beta.

    glad to hear teamspeak is coming out with something new as competition. personally, i've always hated discord but only started using it because my guild wanted memes -_- 

    discord really isn't even a voice chat server. it's just a social media platform that just happens to have voice capabilities

    Agreed - Discord is not intended as a voice chat server. It's more like a real-time Facebook.

    Something like this would be really interesting to be seen. But maybe expand it so you can be DND too? And possibly for people in lots of servers there's a pop up where you can manually change your status for any server without having to scroll to it.

    This would be really useful if you want to avoid getting notifications on a server. Especially for people in lots of server which get like 100 pings in 10 minutes pretty much. But they don't want to mute all pings in general 

    The current system just doesn't work. 

    Active= Pings from a role your in, someone pinging you, pining @everyone and @here will all be notified to you. This also includes friend requests and DM's

    DND= No ping notifications at all.

    Showing online in some discord servers is considered opsec! (EVE Online)

    Agree with Dal. Games that utilize persistence (Eve Online, Rust, etc) can use this info for opsec.

    Discord is great for connecting communities but I'd like to limit my game activity to "private" servers and be able to hide this activity in larger "public game community" or professional oriented servers.
