I think discord should bring back the verified bot developer badge. sure they add a little checkmark by the BOT tag and allow you to grow past 100 servers but in terms of verification that's pretty much it. nothing special happens to the actual developer. I 100% think we need that badge back to decorate our profile. discord, if you read this please add this in the next update. there are a group of verified bot developers who are frustrated that you removed the bot dev badge, this includes me. I made a bot for legit reasons I devoted HOURS and HOURS into making my bot work exactly how I want it to. like fun commands, utility commands like the random number generator, and other cool commands, and I would also like a neat badge on my profile. preferably keep the same looks as the original one. now there is an ENTIRE community wishing it to be brought back, so discord, in doing so (bringing the badge back) will make an ENTIRE community happy. it just isn't fair for those who didn't submit the application before that time you removed the badge and who are making legit bots.
With so many people wishing it back discord almost have to bring it back
Think about the disappointed bot devs who were looking forwards to the badge but isn't the only reason why they are making a bot. believe me, I was excited as I made the bot before with the intent to be a fun bot that brings joy to any community with it's many commands like games like rock paper scissors, and got VERY disappointed when the badge is no longer available. I didn't scap my bot as the badge wasn't the main focus. there are people (like me) who made true bots and are disappointed with the removal of the badge.
Potential options to make sure that the bot is legit:
The bot owner/dev's account is at least one year or older,
The Bot has a constructed support server
The bot has at least 5 functioning commands
the bot has a working help command and a support command with the link to it's support server.
the owner/dev is active on the support server (testing features, making announcements etc..)
Just because people have been making fake bots it's not an excuse to get lazy and remove a whole ENTIRE feature. people work hard for this badge and it's now gone. it isn't fair to those who make true bots. please consider deeply fixing this and adding it back.
