    Notes aren't easily visible and can't be used for sorting. If they were all that was needed we presumably wouldn't need server nicks either. Agreeing with the OP that it should be implemented for friends, at the very least.

    As an artist who gets in contact with most of his commissioners through discord (chat is quicker than notes), sometimes theyd change their username and forget to remind me, so when i look for them i cant find them and thus they end up losing their slot and i lose a client; sure i can ask them for a set userpage i can reach them out to, or set up a server, but both are too time consuming to manage; i could just add their username to their notes and then look for it in the search feature and it would be super helpful, it would also help me categorize them (IE if i add the Commissioner word on the notes, it would show all people with that word on their note)

    Why is this marked as completed? This feature is not available.

    Is this marked completed because you can put it in the note field?

    If so, I don't think that's what the OP meant -- I think they meant something like Steam's where it will show up next to the user's nickname, not something you have to click on a user to see.  Notes are handy, but it's not the same.

    Also, I don't see a way to search notes, so you would have to go through each user, clicking on their name, to see if the one you're looking for is in the notes.

    Maybe also add an option to override server nicknames / names (only visible to you tho)

    This would be a very helpful feature.  So many like to change names frequently, it is hard to be sure who is who...  Being able to add a private nick is just the sort of thing to resolve any confusion.

    Yes, But that's only for servers, Not for friend DMs.

    Similar to that, but it wouldn't be for just your friends. It'd be everyone on the server, but not a server setting. It'd be a client setting

    Would be a lovely feature to see implemented, especially for those tricky friends who change names often.

    It is really useful indeed I have already gone through the issue of having to find out who is it and having people removed thinking it was my brother adding em but it was just a name change... so it would help a ton having a feature like this 😄

    What I think he means is a nickname only for your client without changing his server nickname which can be different on every server, and maybe you don't even have the rights to change the nickname.

    What should be mentioned is that both the username as well as the nickname can change at any time, the nickname can even be different on every server. Something like that, the AKA is already a feature btw.

    You can more or less add your own nicknames with notes already but you have to open those every time to check them.
    I would actually like to see this feature too, since I have quite a lot of friends on different servers with different names that also sometimes change their nicknames or even username, and its kinda annoying to always have to figure out who is who.

    I would limit it to only friends thought. 

    About the format, "Username (Nickname)", of the name thought not sure , since you could also just give that name to yourself, maybe highlight the "client nickname" or so. (like the AKA)

    I get how this may be weird from a server view point, but it would be very helpful to set nicknames for my friends. This way I can remember who they are when they change their own names or pictures. Basically, the same way that you can set nicknames for friends in Steam.

    So basically adding a nickname to them that applies anywhere and you can see it only. That's cool.

    This would be great! I often find myself utilizing this feature on other platforms to keep track of who is who. A lot of people change their name often leading to confusion. You can already kinda do this by making a note for them. A name history similar to steam would also be nice.

    Still a problem. But hey, we have games and tons of other useless crap that has nothing to do with the original intent of the app. I like Discord, but get so discouraged when any application tries to become all things to everyone. It never is a success. Instead, why not be the best at the thing it was intended to be. This would include being able to see who the heck you are are chatting with regardless of how many names they have or how frequently they change them. Add a nickname field so we can put our own ID for a given user. Please.

    This would be super convenient and should be pretty simple to implement, I think? Hopefully the Discord Team wouldn't mind doing so. I've had my friends change their names and icons so much without a heads up so I eventually have to check our messages to see if I even know em' or remember who they are. It'd be so nice to just be able to give em a Nickname for DM's and such, not disimilar to Facebook Messenger's nickname options. Also if they're allowing others to choose their own Nickname in DM's, showing a "_ has changed their name to _" whenever a Nickname was changed would also be nice. Just the little things for flavor of life and such.

    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.

    Not what I'm working for, The issue with doing that is you can't find the person via the find feature (CTRL + F) and it also doesn't change their nickname.

    I've been recording friends' names in the user notes.  The problem is, I can't type their name into the Ctrl+K quick search to bring them up.

    Because I'm not talking about servers. I'm talking about my personal friends. The other guy was talking about personal nick names on servers.

    I came looking for this exact feature. My SO and I share several servers and being able to give them a special nick that I know is only attached to our DMs would be great. Obviously we both have personal info about each other that we don't necessarily want divulged. When the notification popup appears for a DM, the only difference from a server popup is the lack of a server name. Cue mini heart attacks as I double check the channel and server it's coming from to be absolutely certain.

    Say your friend is the type of friend that changes their name / pfp a lot, it can be really useful for that. Also it can just be useful for keeping track of who's who, I could see it being very useful for me at least, and I'm sure for other people.
