Disable server unread count badge



  • madSimon

    Yes, please. Mute should mean MUTE.

  • Raoul Duke

    Yeah I was just looking for that thing, it drive me crazy, I only want badges for friends talk !!

  • Latromi

    How is this not a thing?

    Why are Discord notifications SOOOOO ARCHAIC? Give me options for EVERYTHING. I if I want to toghle seeing NUMBERS, I should be able to. If I want to still get notifications for certain badge or roles, I should HAVE THAT OPTION. If I want to mute a whole channel then I should NEVER see an unread indication on that UNLESS I have it set to allow notifications for CERTAIN things.

    Mute needs to mean mute.

  • Giostu Zikiya

    It is not implemented. Although sound and banner notifications are suppressed when the correct options are ticked in the server notifications settings page, the unread count in the app badge still exists and cannot be disabled. Stupid sh*t.

  • ShadowT7

    I agree, muting roles or completely server muting does not prevent the notification number with the red dot from showing up. Crazy that you mute something and still get a notification icon for it. The sounds and pop ups are muted, but that's not the issue.

  • Marconius

    Server mute does apply to the Unread badge in the current version, but I would still like a way to not display Unread for a server while still keeping notifications on.

    My preferred solution would be to make the two equal: so if you have only mentions set to send notifications, those would still produce unread badges, but nothing else.

  • NerdShowAndTell

    This is still really annoying. On my iPhone I still see unread badges on the discord icon and on the server, even if it's muted! I'm going to be forced to just remove servers.

  • VIncent

    On pc and android the Apple problem occours the problem with it is me, oh! A new message? No just yet another unread notifications from a muted server. On a channel i dont f@$%ing care about.

  • zenoran

    Am I going crazy? Why do certain servers and channels still have dumb banners regardless of mute and other suppression settings I’ve attempted to set. Application bug? I’m doing something wrong? It sucks because it’s basically forcing me to leave severs because of the annoying badges I don’t care about.

  • Goines

    This is super annoying.  As others have said, I really want to use discord and trust my unread counts.  But, when I completely suppress a channel or server I still end up getting unread counts for it, even if I told it to suppress notifications.

    We need a way to completely suppress a channel unless we manually click on it to read it occasionally.

  • benjo

    hi discord. i'm in a discord with a TON of channels, and people @ here in them constantly. so what happens is i get the little red badge pestering me to check the channel. i hate this.

    not only have i muted the channels in question, but i also turned the notification settings for them to "nothing" and i STILL get the notification badge. after searching online, i am apparently NOT the only person who's been dealing with this frustration for more than two years now.


    PLEASE fix this.

  • benjo

    everyone, submit tickets to discord for this. i submitted one and they said they MIGHT fix it if enough people complain. also, upvote every thread that pertains to this.

  • Prometheus

    Your product management team is so incompetent that a fix hasn't been made for this annoying behavior EVEN AFTER TWO YEARS. This is why I will never use Discord as a serious chat app. Slack all the way!

  • [VOZ] Lucas Ramos

    Please fix.

  • Brizzletron

    Pleeeeease devs!!

  • Nalivai

    It's unbelievable how this is still a thing

  • macerbi

    The impossibility of hiding the message counts is extremely annoying.

  • kanz

    I'll add to the chorus. Don't show unread for a muted server. It should be obvious this is what a user expects when they mute a channel.

  • Joe Clay

    +1 from me too

  • Crafunzio

    Please fix this, it is ridiculous. Muted server, no notification chosen (should I really say that twice?) and still getting the DARN counter

  • Oneathese

    I don't understand why they won't fix this. They did a lot of updates to app and the logo and even made a story about all the logo updates. I don't care about your logo. Just add this feature or just bundle it in with the mute function. I'm tired of thinking I got a message to find out it's from a muted channel. If they don't change this we should find a new chat system to use. They will only respond when people stop using their app.

  • Stepipeppi

    How has this not even been considered yet. This is such a basic and reasonable request. Having 2,417 show up as the discord badge means absolutely nothing to me. Meaning I am much less likely to actually use the platform, because I’m always assuming I don’t actually have new messages. This should’ve been done a long time ago.

  • Stevo

    I knew a dev on the Discord team who explained that discord will basically never fix this. The upper management wants to leave the notifications on so that people are clicking on servers more often to generate traffic. This essentially allows them to lie about their usage stats. The more server clicks that they are getting, the more they can say their product is being used when compared to their competitors. This is good when talking with investors. Of course they would never openly admit this to the public, so not only will they never fix it but they will never tell you why. Only a few people on the inside know how it really works. Even though it would take them five minutes to fix they never will because they want those high click numbers for monetary reasons. Welcome to corporate America.

    So, it’s not the devs fault. It’s the upper management and CEOs. The devs aren’t even allowed to respond to people about it in here. That’s why they never post anything. It’s not their fault, they’re simply being told not to by their bosses. So don’t blame them.

    Prove me wrong, Discord…

  • Aethenosity

    Justin, this is implemented now? How do I do it? Mute still does not remove the unread message badge on muted channels (which is why I was googling the issue right now). I'm just starting to work my way through setting again, maybe I missed something.


    Edit: I see "suppress @everyone and @here" in the server notification settings, which was unchecked. I'll try that.

  • mrBlaQ

    Lol this seriously isn't fixed yet? Do you guys have a dev team?

  • Axel [BraveZebra]

    Yes please! disable that, is super annoying when there are 10 servers on the left, I only really care to stay constantly updated about one, and get the badge with the number on the bar.

  • lfz

    We need this feature, it's really confusing for every one I know that the red notification bubble still appears next to servers that have been muted. Just give us an option
