    Slack does this flawlessly. Mention = red, Message = blue.

    It's quite frustrating to not be able to differentiate this with Discord, I want to action mentions immediately whereas messages I want to catch up when I have some time to kill. I still want to know when there's unread messages, just want to be able to do it at my own pace, whereas mentions need immediate attention.

    has there been any follow-up to this? I agree, this is an agitating and easily fixable issue

    Yes please! Why does Discord think I am interested in reading every message posted on every server to which I am subscribed or own? The entire point of notifying me of messages when I have the Discord app closed to tray, is to let me know of something *in which I have high interest*.

    The #1 category of Things I Have High Interest In is when someone messages me or includes me directly in a post. Yes I want / need to know that.

    The #2 category is when I have deliberately set a server or channel to have new messages trigger the tray icon's state change. *Which is a feature Discord doesn't yet have btw. Hint hint*

    Other than that. any messages on any server/channel aren't important enough to trigger a desktop notification. They can wait until I decide I'd like to browse Discord for interesting messages in my subbed servers/channels.

    The notification in red should be shown only in private messages, mentions, friend requests and it is still adjusted to each channel of each server that the person participates.

    Splitting notifications between private messages, friend requests and mentions can be a good way to make identification easier, but correctly defining notifications is essential.

    But the community is requesting both as two features that I think as two as necessary and essential.

    Looking on google for this kind of request, too bad it's all spread out.

    I've been wanting this since 2017.
    Why is it so hard to get a notification for just private messages?
