Add a way for Nitro Classic subscribers to boost a server

    Yes, I don't WANT all the games. zero interest. What I'd much rather have is the ability to buy a subscription for my server directly, perhaps by donations etc to beef it up. My group's number is less then 10 so we can't even get to level 2.

    Sorry but this is effectively a slap in the face to $5 tier supporters. All Nitro servers should be eligible. $10 tier gets an extra boost perhaps. This is clearly mean to push the Nitro store tier by locking desired features and improved quality of Discord overall behind a paywall. I thought the Discord team was better than this.

    I posted a similar comment on this post if you guys want to check it out:

    If there was a way to earn or gift a sub that ensured the boost went to the server of my choice... I would probably be more tempted to use that feature than I am now.

    I agree, the new system is great for them because it's going to give us more reason to keep that subscription going. But really, I don't think that audio quality upgrades should be premium features. That should be a core feature.

    For me the problem is , that I use Ubuntu (Linux) , and therefore would not be able to use games from the 10$ nitro, so it won't be wort it for me. But I would like to boost a server, it would be ok, if the 10$ nitro gets two boost's and nitro classic only one. Then we have at least one boost.

    Yeah what people are talking about, since it has nothing to do with the games from discord nitro it shouldnt be tied to it. Let the server boost run free and let the classic version use it as well.

    Audio quality shouldn't be a part of server boosting. Audio quality and low ping are the key essentials for why Discord is appropriate as an alternative to TeamSpeak and it's so popular and proliferated fast because it's free for good quality.

    If one of these gets limited/degraded and we have to pay (or be granted through a donation-like structure like this server boost structure) it loses its advantage and we might as well go back to TeamSpeak or go for a free open source alternative like Mumble.

    In your own article describing the differences between Nitro and Nitro Classic, you describe them as follows: "Nitro Classic offers perks for chat, Nitro includes those same chat perks, with the addition of GAMES". Simple, right? That's what I thought too...

    Do you see our point when we feel like we were misled? There was no indication, hint or mention whatsoever that a new feature was coming and made exclusive to the highest tier of Nitro. In fact, I would consider "Server Boosting" a perk for chat, rather than GAMES

    Definitely +1 to everyone else pointing out that classic was meant to provide just the chat features and separate the extra cost of the games from the traditional subscription for more functionality. Though I currently get a boost as a grandfathered nitro classic subscriber, it's definitely my feeling that the features provided by even the high tiers of boost (like 100M upload for everyone) are much more in-line with the expectations of what classic supporters are paying for.

    Everyone's still supporting Discord for the chat features, and the net $250/mo from a level 10 server of classic subscribers should more than offset the extra bandwidth their server would be using from better quality voice or big uploads. If bandwidth were to become a problem (like very large servers using 1TB+ a month through tons of 100M uploads and hours of HQ voice) then maybe adding a sane bandwidth cap before reverting to "classic" limits (or at least a lower tier) until the next month with extra allowance for higher (above 10) levels. If bandwidth cost is the motivation here and a level 10 of classic subscribers isn't cutting it for that level of service, the solution should be to adjust the points granted to member types and/or point thresholds so that it works out in a way that's favorable for everyone. Discord doesn't go broke on bandwidth costs, classic users get the perks and aren't left to pay double or perish (should they want to boost a server they main), and premium users would still get that little extra something for their additional contribution per month.

    Main TL;DR argument: Please stay in the spirit of how you originally designed and portrayed nitro premium/classic and grant classic users the ability to boost too. If bandwidth/money is the concern, rework your system rather than crap on old supporters when their grandfather ends / new supporters who don't want or can't afford or justify the games.

    To be fair, they could've just made 2 Nitro classic boosts worth a full Nitro boost.

    I completely agree with this I wouldn't even mind paying like an extra dollar a month or $62 a year just to be able to boost my favourite servers.

     

    I'm irrationally upset about this...

    I came here to make this exact suggestion.
    I can't see the majority of people using the 9.99 version, I would assume the vast majority use the 4.99 version for the chat features, I could be wrong of course but that's what I assume at least, so it would make more sense for the classic version to also be able to boost. I would like to do this for my server for the guild I run but I can't because no one uses the 9.99 version and we have a member total of 78 members (and growing), more people use the classic version. : (
    Please consider this!

    I honestly thought it was a one time thing, I don't like subscriptions. Not even nitro itself. I'd pay once for a service that gives me something permanent but what's the point to pay 9.99 for a discord role? And you don't even get anything because it has to be gifter.

    Yeaah I'm pretty peeved that classic users don't get some boosting ability since we * are * paying for something still. Also, my nitro classic doesn't really get me that much and I can't afford more than $5/month so I'm probably just going to end up cancelling my nitro subscription unless classic users get more features that I care about.

    I never said that 500Eu. is not fair. I'm just saying that people need to pay the bills. 9.99/m is more than fair to make up for all the free shit they're giving you.

    I think there 2 ways to do server boosting better:
    Get permanent server booster if you buy 10$ nitro.
    Or add chance boosting server for nitro classic.
    But then you need to increase number of required boosters.
    I hope you change smth))

    I was hoping they would eventually make another nitro version, maybe 1 or two dollars more expensive than classic, where you can server boost, have all the chat extra's like emoji's, more upload availability for pictures and so on..., but not the games! As a student i don't have the money for Nitro, but only for Nitro Classic per year. I am able to server boost right now (A gift from discord <3 ) , since i had Nitro back when it was still one thing without the games... However, i see now that i do not make use of the games and mostly just use the chatextra's and... well boosting. 

    Making an inbetween option of some sort would make a nitro user who would like to boost, but doesn't use the games, a lot happier! 

    Please consider this in a way, or make it atleast so that you could give a boost per month or per two weeks for like 1 dollar per boost for example, to keep it available to everyone :)
