Disable Notifications For People Leaving Groups

    This would be great, however you have the abillity to mute groups. If the spam is such a big issue, you can re-use previously made groups or discord servers.

    Reusing groups would be nice, but doing so requires all current participants to rejoin the call rather than just adding the new person and them only having to pick up. Example: We are in an active call of 5 people and want to add a sixth person. There already exists a group with those six people. Adding the 6th person requires one person to add them and then they have to pick up (2 people do stuff). With your suggestion moving to that other group would require person 1 to call the other group. Then person 2 through 6 have to pick up (6 people do stuff).

    So the option of just adding another person is way easier than having a group for every single combination of people you hang out with.

    Allowing us to select whether we want to receive leave notifications would fix the huge amount of them that one can get.

    (We don't get notifications when somebody leaves a server either, because that would be even worse.)

    Muting a group doesnt fix the issue. If the group is still used, you want to see the real messages, but you dont want to get spammed with leave notifications and you dont want to go through every group to mute them individually. The idea is that there would be a global group leave notification mute setting, so that you can focus on the important stuff: the messages (and memes, ofc)

    Hello stuff! Is it possible to somehow disable notifications about someone leaving the group chat or to add this 'settings' in the update? Sometimes its annoying, when someone starts leaving from old group chat. Thanks. <3

    Please, make this happen! I want to have a clean Direct Messages Tab, and so many people get annoyed at this habit of mine leaving the groups, when it is obvious that they are not going to be used ever again.

    I also suffer from friends that don't understand to just stay in one server, and instead make new ones every day.

    Another example of why we need this feature:


    And that is on a 4K screen. Now imagine a 1080p or even a 720p screen... yeah...

    @Nickoakz, that's where the problem lies. There seems to be a sort of divide between my friends on how to use calls.

    Some of my friends are of the opinion you should keep reusing the same call over and over. I personally find there's reasons not to but i won't delve into them here because that's not what my argument is about. Anyways another group of my friends think it's best to just leave "dead calls" be and have them naturaly sink down your "recent chats" untill they sit at the bottom out of sight.

    This works fine for months and then one person decides to leave and that sort of starts a chain reaction as it triggers other people to leave aswell, which can lead to images as the one in the post above.

    if leaving a chat just didn't give notifications and didn't put your chat back up with recently used chats it would satisfy both sides. "stayers" wouldn't get spammed and "leavers" could clean up their chats as they wish withouth bothering anyone.

    Yes this is hands down the worst thing about Discord right now. cc07's screenshot is dead on. Regularly my list of messages gets totally spammed with people's 'leaving group' notifications.

    "no it's useful" to not have this feature mutable? No one asked for it to be removed.

    It's unacceptable that you still aren't able to require authorization to be pulled into group chats and that you can't leave one without it being broadcast to the entire group. This isn't a hard fix and needs to be implemented.

    PLEASE JUST REMOVE IT
    NOT ONE PERSON IN THE WORLD IS OKAY WITH THIS

    Unless someone who doesn't have friends
    Then he doesn't have this useless pathetic boring annoying ping problem

    this is after one person decided to leave everything, which just starts a chain reaction, and now _my_ list is all screwed up unless I want to leave them to (which I don't for historical purposes).

    It should be trivial to add a simple checkbox under "Notifications" in settings of "Enable User Leave Group". When it comes time to blast everyone in a group, just check this value, and if it's false, don't notify the user. _maybe_ 30m of dev time, an hour for full QA. This isn't an unreasonable request Discord, but it's a huge pain to people who want to stay in groups vs people who just blast everyone when they leave.

    There are so many things wrong with how this works.

    1. Why notify at all? Especially for chats older than like a week. If people would go to message people in the chat again, they'd see that they left anyway. There is no need for this notification. All it does is annoy people and make things awkward for everyone involved.

    2. If it absolutely has to notify users, is it really necessary to bring these chats up to the top of your chatlist so all of your chats get burried unless you leave these chats as well? If you have big groups, one person doing a big cleanse of their old group chats is going to cause others to do the same, causing a Tsunami of notifications and abandoned group chats.

    3. Discord sometimes asks to merge group chats when you invite a third to a call, but not always, and it should be the default to do this I think. My friends and I tried to stick to one single group chat for a while, but the interface makes this cumbersome and not worth it. I've basically surrendered to the inevitable notification barrage.

    4. Please just add a setting that let's us disable notifications for leaving users.

    Is anything going to get done about this? - Just had to spend yet another hour being notified that someone has gone through 50 groups and left them

    Just had a bit of a trauma response to a friend leaving a group dm existing with just them, me, and my ex boyfriend. Now I have to relive those memories and I have to decide if I want to rub salt in his wound by also alerting him I left, or sit in an old dm group up at the top of my message chain with just me and him. It’s a useless feature. Let old chats stay dead unless someone actively types in it or let people leave without alerting potential people they have issues with.

    Insane that this hasn't been added yet. This really shouldn't be a thing.

    it's been 3+ years since someone first formally suggested that Discord fix this awful, useless, irritating, non-optional vestigial function that everyone hates... and they still haven't done it. incredible, lol
