    add a way to have your servers on your profile of discord at least 1 or 2. that way people can join your server if they want. too many servers are saying to not have ads anywhere making it hard to gain members.

    Will this be implemented someday? The Thread is 1 year old. I wish it so much also.

    Im discouraging it and yet you will have to actually MAKE an entire discord
    So mostly it just might be like BetterDiscord

    What would even be the Point in having more than 1 account?

    I do believe it’s a matter of time before either discord implements this, or falls out of favour for something better. Maybe people go back to slack?

    That being said, it is not as simple as ‘adopt this thing that twitter does’. From what I’ve learnt about discord, they don’t rush into things. It is done the right way, or it isn’t done at all. I hope this infrastructure is on their pipeline, because I don’t think single accounts is sustainable long-term for many of us, but I’m not expecting it done tomorrow.

    This seriously needs to be added, I have two discord accounts both managing and testing a server, this would be useful because I can't stand using the web client...

    @Audhumbla I'm afraid I have to disagree with you. The use-case of a shared family computer is already well handled by Windows, Linux, and probably MacOS (no personal experience but I would be shocked if it wasn't the case). Give each family member their own user account -- without a password for the kids if necessary -- and use fast user switching to swap between them. This keeps everything each user has together.

    What Discord needs is a means to allow users to have multiple accounts logged in simultaneously. Or multiple public profiles per account as per my sadly deleted original suggestion.

    Of course, there's no reason they can't support both, but considering it's taken this long for them to do anything I worry that they won't ever support both. So I lean towards the one that is not already feasible.

    @Stelard are you really arguing against the use case of something that EVERY major social media app considers a BASIC FEATURE?

    Also, to append to my last comment.
    There are a couple extra cons I wanted to point out with one acc multiple profiles solution.

    1. Security: if my one singular account got breached with my work profile on it, it would compromise my companies content. Where as me having multiple accounts if one got compromised there is a high chance the other is fine.

    2. To implement from a programming perspective multiple profiles is adding features to ui and changes the structure of an account (in code and database).
    Where as simultaneous accounts doesnt change the structure/architecture of a singular account. It just changes the UI a bit (i would expect it to be a lot less ui work than multiple profiles but not 100% sure) to allow simultaneous switching of said accounts and code work is focusing on how users are signed in. No real back end adjustments needed.

    @Audhumbla I don't really have much to add to the argument, but just a small mistake I noticed in yours-

    You mentioned that simultateous switcing of accounts would need more backend adjustments... but that's not completely true.

    For 'Fast Account Switching', you'd need to make changes to a database. It's just, rather than the server database (which contains information about every user), they'd have to change the client database. If they didn't, there wouldn't be any way for the discord client to know which accounts it can switch to. Without changing any databases, it would essentially be a 'Quick Logout' button instead :)

    Meanwhile for 'MultiAccounts', you'd need to make changes to the server database, otherwise Discord wouldn't know which accounts are linked to each other.

    If we forgo any security, this would be the basic concept:

    Multi Accounts:

    Server side would need:

    • Registering alternative username
    • Registering alternative password
    • Registering number of alternative accounts (They'd obviously have to limit it... can't have a single person having 100+ accounts).

    Switch Accounts:

    Client side would need:

    • Registering alternative username
    • Registering number of alternative accounts (The UI would need this in order to make the switching box.. might require a scroll bar for example).
    • Request user to type in password then send request to Discord server to verify the password is correct

    Both would require more or less equal amounts of backend work... If we implement security, such as Auth tokens etc, both sides would need work in regards to that too.

    As for the whole switch accounts/multi accounts thing, in my eyes, there is practically no difference... Switch accounts would still require a username, password, profile picture and userID. That's more or less a brand new account anyway. The only difference would be that the switch account wouldn't need a email, since that would link the accounts together.

    As for the personal/business issue, implementing something akin to YouTube's channels would be best. Same username, password and email, just multiple channels attached to it. That wouldn't work for families though, since nothing prevents you switching between those channels freely.

    @MarsMehlo for your case, having Discord and DiscordPTB installed would solve the issue right?

    @DeathVirus (simultaneous would need less*) in my experience and my intended use of the term backend is typically server side work. Maybe this is wrong however, if you change my comment from backed to "less server side changes" then my comment is still correct.

    To rephrase what I was intending:
    Having a client side that stores information about which accounts can sign in is less difficult than a server side change to all accounts plus everything else on top of that.
    Multiprofiles change the way a single account object is viewed so would require a significant rework of the server database and code to reflect the structure.
    Simultaneous users may need authtoken or some value (if it doesnt already exist), but this is still one thing added not a restructure.
    Client side you would store the information in a binary config file/ cache it you wouldnt use a "database" for it - itd be like how cookies on websites work.

    And in regards to UI, yes they both need those things. And it would depend on how they visually wanted to execute it.
    However, the main difference is the concept of multiple profiles. They would then have to have all the current "account" ui separated from what we are now calling "profile" since you now have account stuff and profile stuff. So thats extra interfaces. Also development of the new profile class. Functionally/conceptually there are a lot of similarities I agree - things like considering which is active, switching server lists, switching friends lists and such. But, in comparison with simultaneous all the current UI would pretty much stay the same. They would just need to add / tweak the inteface to have an "alternate accounts" panel. And adding an alternate account would/could still use the same sign in ui.
    If you had multi profile they would need to keep the create account, sign in to account ui and have to make a new "create profile" ui. These differences (unless I am overlooking a simpler solution) is my basis on why I said simultaneous accounts would be less work.
    Multiple profiles has the pro of one email, which is why I see a validity in both functions (but this is the most amount of work solution)

    And at the end of the day, both ideas give a solution to personal and work splitting. But not the solution to multi user switching.

    And saying "have discord and discordptb" is the microsoft approach of if there is a work around you're good. Work arounds are a lame excuse and dont make "discord" better, thats what we are asking for. One app, that does this. MarsMehlo and her bf dont need to download both chrome and mozilla to have ease of use with Facebook, google acc, etc. So why is it a valid point here?

    @Stelard multiple user accounts is a thing for company computers or public computers...not for home computers. In most family situations it's simply not worth the extra time or resources to setup multiple users and log into all of them every time you reboot.

    Besides it doesn't address mobile users at all

    @Assimilater I disagree, my family had our own windows accounts on shared computers for as long as Windows has supported it. It's a good idea for security and privacy, and MS is still pushing it. It could stand to be made a little more user friendly, perhaps.

    I will concede mobile support for multiple users is not really there yet, but that's because the presumption is that a mobile device will not be shared.

    @Audhumbla I think we might actually be arguing for the same thing, after reading what you said. Allow me to take a step back and clarify.

    What I want is a way to be simultaneously logged in to multiple accounts, so that you can see all the servers and friends of all logged in accounts, and messages coming in on any of those accounts show up. Ideally it would let you change the colour scheme of the app to match whichever account you're about to send a message with, to prevent any accidents. And if they made it easy to log some of those accounts in and out to suit the 'hey mum I just need to send a message to Jon real quick' use-case, so much the better. This would suit me, and I think most of the people in this thread.

    What I do not want is for Discord to give us a way to log out and then log in to a different account slightly faster, and then call it a day. We already have ways to do this, albeit not an ideal way; Windows accounts, launching Discord as a different user login, password managers, etc etc. If you're okay with cutting off account A to check on account B, then you can do that. If you want to keep 2 or more accounts open at once, that's difficult to do on Windows and impossible on mobile (unless you use Android islands, which only lets you do 2 accounts at once and involves installing Discord again, and your keyboard app, and other stuff).

    @Audhumbla Obviously, this isn't a solution, but if your workplace contacts you via discord often, you may want to look into a app cloner for whatever OS your phone is running. Should Discord ever sort out a proper means themselves, you can always change to it then!

    I have a personal account and a company account. I'd like to log into both simultaneously, with one set to active at a time. Please consider a UX update to the native desktop app that would allow me to sign in to multiple accounts (saving the passwords too) and allowing me to switch within 2 clicks to one of those accounts at any time.

    Thanks.

    This feature is useful yes to separate between games. I can have one account for game A, and another for game B.

    As someone who has two accounts to keep things organized it would be great to have a way to quickly switch between the two without having to completely log out. I would love something similar to how Twitter works.

    My solution was using the app

    I still want discord to support multiple accounts but i will use this app for divide work and personal

    this would be a smart idea.

    a button where it says "add account" you press that and it opens a login page (discord app windows)

    you log in with the correct information and go to settings and easily switch accounts from the other one to the new one.

    to prevent alts i suggest it to only have 10 accounts that u can use.

    yes or no?
