    Have an upvote from me. I liked this suggestion, and want to see it on Discord.

    Hello,

     

    I think this would be a great idea, especially for server moderators. In the discord servers I'm in, often someone swears, harasses, or threatens another in a voice channel. Then when a moderator enters the chat, they stop because they hear the sound of someone joining and sees the tag. A silent/invisible join/presence in a channel would be great for moderators who need to catch someone. The option could easily be enabled rightclicking the voice channel and clicking "silent join".

     

    Thanks

    I see the appeal for this but I think it could easily be abused, sometimes I'm having private conversations in vc's that are stopped when others join. With this feature a moderator could be listining in without my knoledge. For smaller server's where modderators arent as serious I could see this being an issue.

    I disagree with this idea. It'd be abused and people would listen in on the conversations of others which is creepy, not helpful.

    I find the idea that the moderator can sometimes listen without being seen excellent.
    There is far too much abuse from so many people and this will allow the moderator to banish someone with bad behavior without blaming others who have nothing to do with it.
    For private conversation, it's symple, don't come in group lounge lol :)

  • moderators admins or server owners need this ability, far too often so people change their behavior to cloak their intent. as was previously stated, have private conversations in private not in public if that's an issue for you.

    DM is where private conversation should take place, other then a locked channel VC is public

    I agree on this one. As a long-time server owner I find it very difficult to prove someone guilty of harassment if said harassment is being done through VCs. And if you're going to have a private conversation, move it to DMs, where private conversations are supposed to go.

    Agree with this. I run a small server for my kids and their friends who are all between 6 and 12. I would like to be able to get on their channel once in awhile without them knowing so I can check on them. "Trust but verify" :)

    @Droid underaged users are not allowed in discord, therefore you shouldn't use that as an example in the first place.

    This would be fundamentally wrong in so many ways and in fact unlawful. 

    everyone has a right to privacy (you dont wave that right by joining) and such a tool would be abused far more often then used for good reasons.

     iam a curious person and the temptation would be to listen if someone talk shit about me or whatever. i rather get it straigh in person then behind my back. and people in my discord know that i can take critique. and what could i personaly gain from it? i would never be able to confront the person about it because i wasnt there. only 2 possibilitys are left when confronted. either i listened in or someone snitched, nothing good will come out of it and its not a way to establish trust in any way.

    this would totally be the autocratic way where a gouverment decied´s when and where they can listen in without cause or permission (yes i know that happens but trough loopholes in the system, if you listened to what edward snowden had to say)  harrasment not only happens in discord, it dous in real live, and everybody know how hard it is to proof these kind of accusations. thats why we have courts.

    and if your argument is, "well sometimes there are tapes of revealing conversations" iam sure the person who taped everything wasnt in the room in invisible mode. he just had a tool to record the conversation he had and not just heard.

    and last point, just because you are the admin dousnt mean you are the sane one.

    @ryu this wouldnt be an option for any user would be for moderators of servers to make sure rules are being followed in the server, rules you as a user agreed to by accessing their server, so how would that be abusing it?
