Make Discord Open Source

    As long as Discord keeps going in this direction I see no need for it to be open-source, also the fact that it used their servers would definitely make this a no-go.

    Making it skinnable might be a happy medium.

    Make the client open source and moddable, keep the servers closed source, maybe leave some parts of the client closed like the store and such.

    Making the client open source means the community can really push the limits to what discord can do. It wouldn't hurt Discord, it would make it better overall and allow for quicker bug fixes and upgrades.

    werethless12 superficially that sounds great. community development has its perks, however, this will also enable reverse engineering to be much easier, and could go catastrophic.

    Discord is actually a company product so it's pointless to make it open source. I personally would hate to see a lower quality clone of Discord which would be made possible by open sourcing discord.

    Personally, I disagree. We don't need to see Discord App'd code, others just want too,

    Personally, i think that a version of discord without the store but its open source would be awesome!
