remembering four digits is too much for zoomers
>make service worse for 0 reasonwhy does this keep happening?
>let people use letters as well>available discriminators per name jumps by a factor of 167>people are even more likely to spend money on nitro now that they can spell out words with their discriminator
>>93671550>LETS BE TWITTERINO GUYSget ready for the removal of privacy on all servers
>>93671533imagine if they would have had to use ICQ
>solves duplicate name problem>unsolves it
>>93671604>removalyeah just like mojang keeps removing herobrine
>>93671550How is this worse>>93671616it's solved
>>93671550>>93671616>be me>have a unique username that nobody else duplicates>STILL require to remember 4 retarded numbersYou have baby duck. you have new thing bad. number discriminators are shit and im glad they're changing it finally
>>93671644>it's solvedyes i cant wait to name myself xXPeWdIePIe3924Xx again
>>93671654how is that worse than xXPeWdIePIe3924Xx#4815
>>93671653>new system requires two separate usernames>improvedaight>>93671666>>93671666>how is that worse than xXPeWdIePIe3924Xx#4815gotcha cunt, you would name yourself PewDiePie#2959
>>93671681It doesn't require two separate usernames. Only the actual username is required. Display name is optionalif only 4chan niggers ever bothered to read or look up anything before seething>>93671681>PewDiePie#2959yeah that's worse cause good luck remembering those numbers without nitro
>>93671698>yeah that's worse cause good luck remembering those numbers without nitro>clicks on name>whole thing gets copypasted automaticallyquit making bullshit up anon, your arguments cant hold for shit, you are more leaky than the fucking titanic
>>93671706yeah no shit you can copy it if it's in front of you, retardwhat about all those situations where you need to remember it and it's not there
What happens if I don't pick an username? Is my account considered blocked until I choose one?
>>93671698>zoomers can't remember 4 numbers
>>93671706>left click on @xXPeWdIePIe3924Xx>it gets copiedWOOOOW>>93671715your current username plus discriminator becomes your usernameif there are no valid alphanumeric characters in it, you get a randomized string instead>>936717174 numbers times the amount of people u need to remember, plus the actual username (which is case sensitive and can contain any UNICODE)
>>93671728why would you need to remember other usernames than your ownstop making up problems
>>93671698ICQ was really popular in my country. It hasn't been relevant for like 15+ years. Everyone still remembers their 8–9 digit ICQ number.If you can't remember 4 digits, you might have brain damage.
>>93671752thats his whole argument, making up nonsense bullshit problems that arent real, next i know he will be like, BUT WHAT IF YOU GET STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF A DESERT ANON, HUHH??
>>93671754>you might have brain damage.anon this is the target market for d*scord
>>93671787>making up nonsense bullshit problemsthat's what you're doing"two usernames required" <- completely made up>>9367175432 case sensitive symbols including unicode
>>93671550Step 1. You have a new company. Most of the design stuff is done by programmers or in general people who don't really care about design, but mostly functionality. They are often reasonably intelligent, hence their design is fairly decent.Step 2. You are successful and expand. You can now afford to hire a design specialist. He does some changes, things improve a little bit.Step 3. The designer, fearing for his job security starts to complain that things are outdated, not faggot friendly, whatever. He tells the higher up people that if he could hire a team of people it'd improve the product significantly.Step 4. At this point, you are lost. Having an entire team of faggots whose work is worthless, they need to constantly do work lest it be realized that they do nothing. Change, even change for worse, is constantly encouraged because otherwise they appear superfluous to the company (which they always were).This development applies to any useless bullshit job in corporate - marketing, HR, design, etc.
It's not because of zoomers, they have been on discord for years and years.It's because of normies, more normie than what /g/ things of as normies. They've saturated their previous market. Discord used to target Dickey the fortnite gamer, but now they want to target Hannah the bath bomb tiktokker too.And Hannah can't be bothered to remember four numbers because numbers are for nerds.
>>93671681>gotcha cunt, you would name yourself PewDiePie#2959Name yourself PewDiePie_2959 then, same fucking shit
>>93671981but i dont want to
>>93671533Old system was retarded.
>>93671533That's obviously not the reason they are doing this. There is some monetary incentive such as convincing specific entities or internet presences to go on Discord. However all of their names are taken so they won't do it. Thus they have to steal all the names under the guise of this change.
>>93672756I feel like this is the most likely reason. If you force unique names, then you can enforce giving the name "McDonald's" to the McDonald's company exclusively, letting them have an official account that's more difficult to imitate. They're then more likely to try to advertise on your platform.Of course, there's no way for a brand to advertise on Discord like that, but that can always change in the future. I can easily see Discord trying to add Twitter-like functionality.
its so that in the imaginary scenario in which somebody tells someone their discord username in real life, it will be simple, like an instagram or twitter handle. ever since covid, discord has been desperately trying to kill all of its branding to become a normified general communication app. too bad zoom, slack, google, and microsoft already took over those markets. but yet discord succeeded anyway. now its only good for weird egirl servers and people who think animated emojis are peak comedy. the downfall was when they introduced nitro. after that it was a rapid downfall
>>93673027>implying it was ever good
discord is trying too hard to become instagram
Who's acting like you have to remember the discriminator? If you forgot, you can easily look it up in the Discord client. It even let's you copy your name with the discriminator.
>>93673857because contrarians can't live without constantly complaining about something
>>93673836>>93671604>two ESL retardsTheres a difference between spying and public.discord spys on its userstwitter is public.
>>93671698>yeah that's worse cause good luck remembering those numbers without nitrodo you remember your bank pin???
>only 1000 users can have the same name, that's bad!>so now only 1 user can have that name, good luck!I bet that someone at the company will be selling "exclusive" usernames in the black market or they will make their own market and take a cut of every transaction.
>>93674230they're gonna be like twitter and just forcefully take over any username that a brand would like to use
for a shit service like discord I won't even remember two digits. Fuck them
hey guys do you remember when mmo games only allowed one person to have one character with one nickname, wasnt that great hahaha, we should bring that back.. ha...ha.. *sob*
>>93674373They will probably charge corporations for that. Still, it's fucking retarded, they could have created special no-discriminator accounts for corpos without forcing everyone else to change username.
It's funny how people started refunding Nitro because it won't let you choose username anymore and Discord responded by essentially making the whole transition pay-to-win. I hope they keep making these retarded decisions so this cancerous service can die already.
>>93671533No zoomers asked for this the discord devs are millenials who keep trying to monetize more of their service because it turns out selling mountans of data isn't as profitable anymore when everyone else is also doing itWe're reaching the digital equivilant of equivalent those towns in africa with literal mountains of used clothing and glasses or those towns in china that are plastic wastelands that for a short while made cash recycling it all until people realized it wasn't worth.They're going to start charging to change your username. I promise you that.
>>93672931I know it's cursed, but I can see discord adding banner ads to unpartnered and non-boosted servers. Hopefully they won't do the bullshit that was keyword advertising.
>>93671533I did not visit 4chan to see discord posts. Use should use matrix or XAMPP anyway
>>93675490To talk to who?
>>93671533le discord thread
>>93671550Think of how someone might make money from this and you'll know your answer. The creed of every shit company is eventually nickel-and-diming.
>>93671897incredibly well put, anon.
>>93675490nigga, I like matrix in principle, and I was it was viable, but god damn it is awful.they should've gone for a modernized IRC with QoL improvements instead of trying to be a clunky discord knockoffthe web client is a diarrhea of endless spinners
>>93675531Good question. None of the 4chan posters or KiwiFaggot posters pretending to be anons have friends anyway. I meet my friends in person if I want to talk or hangout
>>93675801>The web clientSo pick a different client? It's an open protocol
>>93674987werent they already charging for custom numbers
>>93675801hexchat literally looks like discord, very modern compared to irssi
>>93671533what happens if you try to use same username as 9999 other people
>>93674518Absolute win for me, I've made alt accounts with the same name as several people that I hate and I've got Nitro for all of them ready to pounce.
>>93671616There should be only and only one username. I'm AnonTheGreat without numbers. >>93671616>>93671610
>>93676596You do like any sane person does, you choose a more unique username
>>93676596It will say the username is unavailable, so just add 4 unique numbers like Anon9384
>>93677882Then you get to be Anon9384#2352so cool
>>93671533Who cares? Does anyone here actually unironically use that tranny cesspit?
>>93671533>Using Discord to begin withStop trying to groom kids pedo
>>93671533Yes goy pay 5 bux for your username on the black market.
>>93671533>insert the numbers into my display nameSolved.
>>93681352first name usernames will be hundreds or even thousand of dollarsshort dictionary words will be pretty expensive as well
>>93671550>>93671533>believing the official explainationget in the blockchain you stupid goyim.
>>93671754i havent used icq in 20 years but i still remember my number.
