    Yes. Please don't be like the other messengers which have so much non-text buttons cluttered in their textbox.

  • yassino

    i'm pretty sure it was removed in the latest version

  • Jerl

    Unless there's a "latest version" that it won't let me download, the Giphy button was added in the latest version.

  • yassino

    That's weird because last time I checked, it was removed once I updated my discord client version.

    How did I get this gif button?

    how did my GIF button get removed 

  • Jerl


    Right-clicked the icon in the system tray, clicked "Check for updates" three times.  Still have it.

    This is on 3 separate computers.

    Staff here over at /r/discordapp said it was for Canary (aka alpha/beta of Discord).
    There's a possibility that this feature is being gradually rolled out to non-beta users? Because I've asked several people around servers, and none of them have it yet.

    Eitherway, this just makes the option to have the toggle on/off for it all the more needed.

    A solution to this would be to maybe break these buttons vertically if removing these are impractical.

    Anywhere else is better TBH. I get that they want it to be apparent, but as someone who uses Discord on a portrait monitor, but tends to write very long messages, (such as while roleplaying,) the "little" bit of width the gifting button removes is a huge hassle. I can see where it could go un-noticed on a landscape monitor with only one or two lines of text, but I'm certain many people use Discord in places beside a fullscreen landscape monitor, and once you have a few lines of text it quickly becomes a huge hassle.

    I'd be fine with it in the current position if you could permanently dismiss it, and it moved to people's profile's afterward, but staying permanently in the current position is awful.

    While the Emoji and GIF Pickers seem relevant, a "Gift Nitro" button seems more appropriate for a profile to specify the user and make the process more efficient.

    This. I already pay 5 bucks a month, I don't need ads to buy nitro for other people too.

  • Omegacreeper

    Yeah, You can already buy Nitro/Nitro Classic gifts in User settings -> Nitro, So I don't see why I need a button in my chat bar.

  • Shigoto

    Why isnt there a way to remove the Gift nitro button. i dont want this garbage on my screen. This should have never been on the chat screen and should have always been confined to profile pages, I know it exists i dont need an AD on my screen 24/7. This garbage is starting to get as annoying as skype. PLEASE REMOVE IT

    or just had an option to toggle it

    personally i get verry upset with this button, i often click on it instead of clicking on the emoji button

    and it will be so bad when the GIF button will be live

  • Kewlin

    Oh no, there's going to be a gif button too?

     

    Can they please just make all three buttons optional? I don't even use the emoji button, and there's no way in hell I'm using the gift of gif button.

  • KahadoK>

    yeah !

    have the 3 buttons optional will be an great idea !

  • Fapologist

    It's absolutely a ridiculous placement, it belongs either on the Nitro page or in everyone profile. this just seems like a conspicuous money grab tbh, and it's frankly annoying trying to click the emoji icon and miss clicking the gift thing.

  • Nums

    I second getting rid of this. Gifting nitro is easy enough through the settings menu, I don't need a constant reminder that I can spend more money.

  • Nums

    Or just let me toggle all three buttons individually. I won't use the GIF picker and I don't give nitro enough to warrant needing that button there constantly.

  • Sash0l

    This is marketing, i doubt they will remove it

  • GEEK

    It seems like a forced way to get people to think about gifting nitro in the first place. I understand wanting to let people know they have the option to do so, but causing it to interrupt typing things out to people/ friends? Just seems like a terrible idea from the start. I consulted quite a few of my friends about this, and they all had the same negative/ demoralizing opinion about it that I have. I don't mean to complain, but having something like that on the chat bar is too much. It doesn't contribute anything to communicating via the chat bar what-so-ever, so why put it there? I figured Discord was above stuff like that, but I guess not...

    The easiest workaround for Discord on browsers until/if they add the option to remove it would be to simply filter it out with an ad-blocker extension. You might need to select the area twice to get rid of both the button and the actual pop-up.

  • Melancholia

    Agree!

  • deisan_li

    Agree >:c

  • irismustang

    I came here solely looking for this option to upvote. I just now got that gifting icon and I've accidentally clicked it twice. I don't mind the GIF icon, but I do not have anyone I would want to gift Nitro to and all this does is add clutter. 

  • irismustang

    It's useless marketing. I get wanting income but all it does is clutter and make it more annoying for users, paid or free. I don't chat with anyone I'd want to gift Nitro to, and I doubt I could gift it once and get it to go away. 

  • Tykesha

    Obviously this was put right in the chat for $$$. I'm sure they've already sold a bunch because of it. It's just a marketing stragety, but at least twitch put's their sub gifting feature in their subscribe button which is out of the way and not shown in theater mode...
