Forcing usernames to be unique will not get rid of the issue of multiple people wanting the same name. Assuming "@fasteroid" is taken when I'm forced to migrate, Fasteroid#1150 will just become "@fasteroid1150", and there is absolutely no difference between these two in regards to needing to remember a discriminator...
...aside from the fact one keeps the discriminator distinctly separate from the username (objectively better)... And the fact one supports names in any language... AND the fact the other constitutes a MAJOR breaking change to old discord bots... *AND* the fact that now ANYONE can username squat since there's no longer 9,999 guaranteed instances per username. Seriously, did ANYONE besides the marketing department or HR think about this?
Sheesh. The rebrand and logo changes around a year ago pissed me off but this is worlds worse. Do not do it!
