    Yeah there is an AKA tab when you are in a message with someone but that isnt always the most reliable of information

    I don't think that I would ever use this, but I see how it can be useful.

    @Da Bald Eagul - true, you can do that, but ideally you can see them in the list, otherwise you have to open the profile of each friend, on by one, until you find the one you are looking for... There is a post for it here: https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360030124711-Nicknames-on-the-friends-list

     

    @Laenrda - If it displays to the user who set it, and not globally, then this is not in violation of any law across the globe. There would be an issue if Discord would offer up this information without the user knowing, or of adding this information on behalf of someone would make it available to others, but the above does neither of these things.

    while I understand what you mean by this, how like on steam you can assign nicknames, you can also use the "note" system by clicking on a user's name and assigning a note so that you have the info you need at one click

    No click is better than one click imo xd

    I would like it if you could "client-side nickname" anyone though, not just your friends.

    All the emoji's and special characters people use in their name is a nightmare for accessibility. Being able to nickname people would help the usability of TTS by not making them have to constantly re-read the dozen of emoji's some people tact to the end of their names.

    I would find this suggestion very useful as a lot of my friends constantly changes their name.

    Really need that. Or client-side name change, or option to sort by note, or some client-side groups where i can put some contacts (only for me so they dont see each-other and i can see all my customers fast).

    For example in my case part of my work is in discord and to PM a customer (who can often change nickname and there is a lot of customers in general and amount is growing) i just need to scroll through all contacts and guess if he is my customer or i just played wow with that guy at some times.

    This is definitely my biggest annoyance with Discord. I’m spoiled by apps like Whatsapp and Telegram using names from my phone contact book; by Steam chat’s ability to add nicknames to people; and, more than anything else, the fact that people don’t tend to change their nicknames in IRC. It’s such a seemingly minor thing, but it’s one of those small things that you only really appreciate when it’s gone. (Or maybe I’m just weird.)

    Merci ! C'est juste que je trouvais ca utile car des fois les gens n'ont pas les mêmes pseudos partout et puis on peut renommer quelqu'un de façon sympa même si il le saura pas x)

    This would be very helpful. In skype we have the ability to edit a person's name as needed. A lot of my contacts in Discord use their RL names, but I only really know them with their Second Life name, and I often find it difficult to locate them.

    Uhhhh, you can add notes to someones profile. It might not be exactly what you are looking for as the note only displays on the profile itself and you still see their wacky name. But it's a good workaround that I use very often until they actually add nicknames.
    What I am really waiting for is folders for DMs/friends list. That would be amazing. Now I need to type it in the note but that's not that helpful 😒

    I would very much like to see this feature . Even if the original name stays like this for e.g “og name (nickname)”

    If the devs drop everything just to add this feature it would be worth it, because inability to assign personal nicknames to other users is the single biggest downside to using Discord, which is otherwise absolutely wonderful. See how Steam does it - it works beautifully there.

    This kind of feature is damn near required in any modern chat application. Even most sms apps let you do this, ffs

    This is a good idea as my friends often have stupid names and I can not tell them apart.

    This should be a thing at least for friends. Right now I got bunch of them with nicknames that are in fact meaningless for me. I'd rather see the names/nicknames/aliases etc. set for them by me. Like, instead of DudeMe#1234 I should see Martin Smith which I set for that contact/friend.

    Even MSN had that... it's so basic and required in any chat software that it's shocking not to have it.

    Steam, Skype, Whatsapp, Telegram, Messenger, Battle.net... All those chat applications do it and they do it right.

    I think of it like your contacts list on your phone. Its your view of the interface, you pick what you label them as. Its frustrating not to be able to set how it displays on your end. Notes are to keep track, but I want to be able to set the display name as I see it in private chats. I mainly use Skype, which has this, I cannot fathom why this feature isn't in. Notes are truly not the same function. I keep checking to see if this becomes a thing, it is a big bother not to have this ability.

    I think the main reason I want this feature is because some people will be in a server and they will choose a super offensive name. And since my phone is also my work phone, I don't want people thinking that I codone the names that they have selected. I block the people with the offensive names, but they still appear in the member's list. I would like the ability to either a) have them disappear from the members list when blocked or b) change their name and don't display their original name for my view.

    You can always add it as a note: https://i.gyazo.com/5528d6c3fe85bf48ddd624540e365ea5.mp4
