Bringing Bot Developer Badge back Or Make a new badge

    Hello there,

    i believe what makes the badge secret is that it is limited, its an early verified bot developer badge, not a badge that just opens up here and there.

    discord made the badge exclusive because of people making bots for the badge which cannot be stopped by anyone's promise.

    i as a bot developer have seen the difference between the time of the badge and the time where it was removed. my bot was verified in a month where my second bot after the removal of the badge was verified in 4 days.

    this is the reason the badge was removed as people are and will be greedy.

    a developer badge is a stupid addition (coming from the owner of one of the biggest coding communities on turkey) i realised while moderating my server that around %90 of the verified bots are stolen code.

    verification is a need for a bot and honestly i don't see discord hiring more people just because of the fact that people want a badge. Its super easy to make a bot and get it to 75 servers. This will make the verified bot developer badge useless seing it will be owned by everyone around you.

    i personally think its a bad idea seeing that a bot can be stuck at a 100 servers, it can be rapidly growing but it will have to wait for a month to make that growth just cuz people make bots because of the badge.

    AmishaPateL. as you think the badge is stupid addition just don't forget that you also have it.

    and in the second place the badge is for developers who put hard work to be recognized for their work and also be rewarded for what they did.

    and about the code stealing thing in turkey, you can talk about this issue to them.

    Thank You.

    Yes. I do think they should add the badge back, but if they do there could be problems, like people buying / selling accounts alot more which also is a risk. -ayo#-0002

    My suggestion: the old badge stays the same. People who got a verified bot after the removal of the badge showed that they did it for the community and not just to get it. They should get a "verified bot developer" badge that is somehow different from the OG one (color?)

    Yes, the badge must come back.

    Every single verified developer must write their own feedback or just comments and upvote this one.

    It’s plain and simple, Discord will not under any circumstance bring back the badge, people were making bots just to get the badge, and it was masses of verification requests that were the same, they will not bring back the badge because of that reason. They already said this before in the Discord Developer server.

    Oh welp, what I will say, on my whole and personal opinion is that Discord could proportionally bring back the badge but with a slight difference. That says, this time it won't only be owner of a verified bot, but they can include other conditions.

    Your bot most not be a copy of another bot

    Bot name should be unique

    Not any forked/downloaded GitHub repository

    Must include an official TOS page

     

    Anyways those kind of stuff, I'm commenting this because I honestly stopped working on my bot since the badge was revoked and I knew I would never get it.

    This was my opinion, over, and out!

    The “Early Supporter” badge was added by Discord to show who really supported Discord in the beginning with buying Discord Nitro. Not those who used Discord way back, ts for those who helped keep Discord going by purchasing their services that enhance the platform. It’s not a useless badge. And I myself don’t have the Early Supporter Badge.

    I think he meant making another badge is stupid. Not the badge that is already there.
