    Hmm, not sure this would be the best option considering everyone seems to like it how it is already. Maybe this could be implemented but have an option in settings to turn it off?

    I personally think that this feature would not be useful enough

    I don't think people would want that.

    There are enough people who disabled it in WhatsApp because their contacts wanted them to answer in seconds and they got pissed of about that.

    Man yes people would want this cause I'm sick of texting people then wondering if they seen it most times I know for a fact they seen the shit just choose to ignore it so I just remove myself from ppl like that but still it would be a good feature just have it where people can turn it on and off so people who don't like it and do like it can have their say over it simple

    One of the reasons I love Discord and support it so much is because it doesn't do this kind of thing. I'm fine with some kind of feature being implemented, so long as there is a way for me to opt out of people being able to tell I've read a message. When you get several hundred tags a day from people who need a response, it would be annoying to view a message and immediately start getting pestered about why you haven't responded. So for some this would work, but I wouldn't be comfortable with using it.

    For direct message would be very good. On servers only if it were viable.

    Honestly speaking, I hate this kind of feature as I find it to be incredibly invasive and often time making me feel like I need to respond immediately, and I don't like that kind of pressure. If this were optional, sure, but please do not make this for everyone.

    I think this is a great idea me and my bf us discord to talk and it's hard to know if he sees my message.

    Do not make this a toggle feature, that defeats the whole purpose of this feature, to know if someone is ignoring you or not, this should work in DMS and group chats.

    We've been considering switching from Skype to Discord at the office but not having this feature would be a deal breaker for me.  It is incredibly valuable to see if your coworkers had the time to read your message.

    In the same way we'd like to know if people are reading our discord messages, We'd like to know if Discord is reading this thread.... 🤔

    Hey Finemoves, I feel the same way!  I'd love to know what discord thinks about this.:

    Just reinstating my position as I still get emails on this. This is not a feature most people I know on discord want. This is intrusive, from my personal opinions it is the one reason I don't use facebook messenger. 

     

    If you want someone to acknowledge that they read your message, tell them to respond like a normal human being.

    Clearly some people do want this feature, and some people don't.  I suspect that people with either view are decent human beings.  They just have different needs.  IF it happened to be true that most (but not all) people didn't want an indicator of whether messages have been seen,, then how could we meet people's differing needs?  The read/seen indicator function could be turned OFF as the out-of-the-box default position.  Then people doing DMs or server managers could choose to turn the function on if they felt the need. PLUS each individual could turn the function OFF for themselves personally, as an override, if it was turned on by a server manager and the user didn't want it on.

    Pursuing your own personal views in ways that look after your own user experience makes total sense, but blocking the availability of an optional function that others really want is heavy handed and in my view unnecessary..

    I do believe that, if this happens, it should be a setting we can toggle off either app-wide or on a case by case basis. Just like any other program with read receipts.

    At the moment, the only way I can know if a member is reading threads, is if they literally respond. Clearly this is no indication of how many people are reading the thread. Knowing which members are not reading announcements would be helpful in knowing which members to remove. At the moment, it creates a lot more work running a racing league having members that don't read certain informative pages. I've had to use 3rd party links getting members to sign in as the only way to know which members are reading important announcements.

    It would just solve a lot of problems if this was all available in one place.

    To the people saying this is "intrusive", what part of "you can disable it" is hard to understand?
