    I was going to subscribe to Nitro today but decided against solely because I can't boost a server anonymously. It would be great if Discord would say something about this, like if the policy change in the future. If they will alliow anon boosts I will subscribe

    Same as dεzεгէ, I was going to subscribe today. I was actually searching for an answer to a totally different question and stumbled upon this. Glad I did. Will not be boosting until it can be done anonymously.

    I'm not going to buy nitro until I at least can control the badge and role color.

    The enforced badge and color destroys my experience.

    Dear Discord Devs,
    Please allow members to hide the ugly purple  "look at me, I care more about this community than you" icon next to our names.  I upgraded from Classic to standard Nitro to boost my guild's server, but I will be reverting back or canceling completely.  I appreciate all your work and efforts to make such a great product and was excited to support both my server (anonymously) as well as your helpful company, but this side-effect of supporting is a deal breaker for me.  I'm looking forward to the patch notes which include this change, as I will subscribe again :)

    At least I was able to fix the role colour, on my own server. However, I'm now considering boosting some other servers, but I won't dare until I can opt-out of the badge.

    "We don't need no stinking BADGES!"

    Boosted a server and discovered the badge, is there still no way to hide this? Come on, I don't want everybody seeing I'm spending money, I will be cancelling everything ASAP until this is resolved.

    hi! i would also love to boost a server but i don’t want everyone to know. it seems strange that you would have a badge at all for when someone boosts a server as its not really important to anyone else. i want to silently support the server i’m apart of, i would even like to be able to boost a server completely anonymously but i understand and am ok if its just the server owner who knows. i probably won’t do any server boosting until this feature is available, which makes me sad but i don’t feel comfortable with how it is now. hopefully this gets considered :))

    DISCORD PLEASE

    I'm getting teased from time to time for just owning a nitro and boosting a server.. I don't want this, allow me to hide it and live in peace!!

    Please Discord add the ability to hide badges. I will not be renewing my Nitro subscription because of this. I don't want people treating me differently because I have boosted a server.

    Please make it so we could get rid of it, I am getting harassed non stop just for it being there

    I will no longer be paying for subscription if this problem is not resolved.

    I hated this before. Then i went to classic. Now im back here and remember why i reverted. Please allow option to remove this. Its ridiculous.

    It's very simple: I belong to multiple servers with overlapping members and I want to boost some of them without getting questions why I'm not boosting others. This has to be a common use-case, and it's perplexing why Discord won't allow us to hide the status. I want to give you my money!

    My theory on why Discord is not adding a hide option:
    It seems that advertising benefits from always showing booster icon are greater than potential loss due to cancellations by people who don't want to show the icon.

    wow the great idea

    @evil mushman That makes no sense. If you have dealt with their customer service, then you know, that they just don't think these things through. Revenue should logically be the most important thing, but they don't practice it, and they miss MANY marketing opportunities. These guys don't have MBAs...

    Also, I specifically asked them if this was the case, and was informed, in no uncertain terms, that it was not. If this request attracts enough attention, then they will add the "feature". (And they may do it eventually anyway; this feels like a bug.)

    I will unsubscribe from Nitro soon without the option to hide my Nitro Boost status.

    It's frankly ridiculous that this thread has been here for 2 years without an option being added.

    Unconscionable, really. Discord does many things well, but whatever you do, do not try to communicate with their administration.

    Ironic really, that a communication company communicates so poorly.

    I'm new to Discord, and I was thinking about subscribing so I can boost a server I really like, but then I notice the Badge. Thank goodness I googled first if I can turn it off or not. Not gonna subscribe then, until Discord has put out an option to keep the anonymity and the ability to hide the stupid "I JUST SPENT MY MONEY" badge.
    Also, this thread has been going on for TWO years and no response whatsoever. WOW.

    I cancelled my Nitro about 3 months ago because this issue is still ongoing.  I'd LOVE to re-subscribe, Discord, but have to take a stand on this. 
    I just noticed the other day you can do something similar on Tw!tch. They have options like "Hide Progressive Gifter Badge and Gifts Given Count" & "Hide Subscription Status in Chat Viewer Card" & "Hide Founder Badge"... so I can't imagine it's really that hard to do.  
    Please Discord, why is this not an option yet?  At least have the respect to address the request, even if the answer is "no, we're not doing it".

    just cancelled nitro because of this and now i'm trying to cancel the boost because its really embarassing

    As many of the above have requested, we'd like the OPTION to disable the boost supporter icon. I'm bumping this up because I just subscribed and it's disappointing that I can't be an anonymous supporter. Some of us just don't want the glam

    Bummer this isn't possible. I would have bought boosts now....

    +1 not paying boost or nitro until hiding boost badges is an option.
    Edit: Seems that we need more votes for this to go up, discord marketing simply dont care about our money.
