    Exactly this request. I was so pissed off that my discord tag changed without warning that I was contemplating deleting my account and never using it again, it was special to me and it's not the same to cheat and change it manually. Why was there not a warning!! And now I can't even change it back!!

    I'm also really pissed, my tag was #0010, but because of the April Fools day, I changed it to "Deleted User" to make a joke to my friends, but my tag changed, to #7159 Without them even warning me about it. God damn it...

    Yes please, considering there's no way to change your name without changing your tag - even with Nitro. Some way of knowing you'd keep your Tag would be really nice :)

    My tag was #1711, and I changed my username for like 5 minutes, now I lost it. How incredibly rage inducing, no warning, no nothing, just another random, stupid number that I cant remember anymore.

    my tag was 3085 and i had it for 3ish years and i really liked it, i hadnt changed my name once. i changed it to see if something would work for a bot and immediately changed it back and its now 5061 and i dont like it at all. i don't want to pay for nitro to get it back. i thought my tag would be permanent but its dumb how it changes, like why

    Yeah ThePaintedFox, you can change your tag with Nitro but not everyone is able to pay for that subscription, like me.

    I'm salty right now, not going to lie. I've never had this problem in the past and I've kept the same tag #1018 SINCE 2016! Last night I was messing around with new name ideas but then I noticed this morning that my tag was changed to #0793 I knew my old tag by heart and it was nostalgic to me but now it's gone forever. I usually keep the same username but this one odd time I want to change it this BS happens, not happy. I can't afford to buy nitro to change it back, and even if I did, I can't afford a subscription and when that one month ends the tag will go back to some random crap. It's extremely disappointing there is no way to change tags to what they were originally.

    It’s the worst! I remember a while back it just wouldn't let me change my name bc someone else with the tag had it—I'd prefer that over just changing my tag!

    And the worst part is they won't ever let us get our original tags back. Like... We don't want something fancy like #0001 or whatever, we just want the tag we started out with

    I recently ran into the same issue. I refused to change my discord username for so long, and then I did it as a joke for an hour and when I changed back my discord tag, which had been "3869" since I'd made my account, was gone. I messaged support and the only response they could get back is that they couldn't do anything, and that I can pay for Nitro to get it back - until the Nitro expires and I lose it again. It is so unbelievably frustrating because I LOVED my old tag and I was very attached to it, and I've given out my discord handle to people recently who, now thanks to Discord not warning me that I'd be losing my tag number, won't be able to find me. I can't afford a year of Nitro for their flawed system, and I can't justify monthly expenses just because they didn't implement a SIMPLE feature. I hope if they add this feature, they restore the tags of people who have had theirs changed.

    Had #1645 since when I joined in 2016 and as a result I got really attached to it, even signed it on some of my stuff.. I changed my name for just a moment and it switched the tag to 5287. Absolutely heartbroken

    my tag was my birthday date, I was so damn lucky and then I changed my username and now I have this stupid different tag than the one I had for almost 4 years. Plus 10 dollars for nitro isn't cheap in Brazil with those damn taxes plus the price of dollar today ( R$4,15 ).

    I haven't even had discord for a full year but my tag has changed almost every 2 months and I rarely change my username, at first I had a cool tag that I really liked and discovered that it had changed and it kept changing then recently I got 1960 which was okay and now I have one I don't like now 6491.
    Can't we just be allowed to keep the original tag?

    There should be a warning about this I'm absolutely livid. Had my number for years and was really attached to it; changed it as a joke like many others and lost #0698 and am now #9195. Not paying for nitro to lose it again. Really poor design part on discords half not even warning users about this.

    I hate this so much. My tag was #4069 and I really liked that tag and was known by people by it.

    I was so unaware of this being a thing! And I'm sure there are many others out there that don't know about it too!!

    I changed my username for a bit and then just POP! I loved my tag and it was the perfect combo for me. I'm really gutted about it. Really disappointed and upset. Then I found this while trying to figure out what happened!! 
    THIS OFFICIAL DISCORD TWEET FROM 2017 HERE
    I wish I got the chance to get it back or be warned about it before being silly. Very, very frustrating.

    Unbelivaboat has a command "!discrim (tag)" which lets you see people with that tag. So whenever you change your name, you can just plop that command down and see if anyone else has it

    Although the user has to be in a server *with* unbelivaboat, so don't trust it too much.

    I also had the same issue. My original discord tag was #2830 and when I got Discord Nitro, I changed it to #9925 and then suddenly after I lost my nitro subscription. It changed back to #0363 which is pretty okay I guess. But still what bothers me is that I didn't even changed my name. I kept it like this for months.

    To everybody in this post,

    If someone already has your username and tag, your tag basically rerolls to a random one without your username. I know it is very frustrating to have your tag change. It has happened to all of us here. Unfortunately, the Discord support team cannot change it manually (I sent them a complaint), so we just have to deal with it. There is a way to reroll the tag again, however, if you are okay with spending a lot of time on it. Join a server with the Dyno bot in it, or create a server and invite the bot at https://dyno.gg/. Then use the command ?discrim (based on the prefix of the bot in the server you are in). Dyno will then respond with a list of usernames who have the same discriminator as you. You can change your username to one of those to get your discriminator rerolled. You will then have to wait an hour for the cooldown if you want to reroll the discriminator again. I did this several times until I got one that I liked: #9559. This is an effective way to reroll the discriminator, and if you want to change your username again, make sure it is unique to keep the discriminator that you have. Good luck to all of you!
