BRING BACK THE VERIFIED BOT DEV BADGE!
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.
Yes! Bring it back.7
Bring the verified bot developer badge, we're working hard to make a successful bot and one of the main goals of that is getting that beautiful badge, hopefully it will be brought back.
Thank you beforehand!6
I'm upset because the way Discord approached this situation is not fair. They could have approached this situation differently to make sure only the people who earned it will get it so the badge still has its value. A great example of this is the Bug Hunter badge, people only get this badge when they have earned it, and there is not a single way to abuse that system. Compare this to the developer badge, it only takes 75+ servers and at least one developer coding a decent bot to get it approved and everyone in the team will get it, no matter if they put zero effort in it.6
Give it back for developers, but chenges limits. Users creates bots only for this bage and this is stupid. Better option is bage for developers with bots in 1000 servers (this is example)3
yes, but I think the 1000 servers is a bit too much. I think it should remain at 100+ servers but extra security like a verified email (the dev) and the badge is for the owner rather then for the ENTIRE team. true story: I am the developer of Bolt bot, and my friend, cement, joined the team yet did nothing for the bot. I did 100% of the work, and I made a true bot, with many features, so I should get a badge not cement. cement did nothing to earn it while I earned everything. I should look at my account and feel proud with the badge while cement deserves to tear up and cry when looking at their account realizing that they did nothing and earned nothing.4
To be honest, 100 servers is really low, although removing the badge completely, is absolutely not great. Therefore, about 300 - 500 servers seems like a decent amount3
Discord should brings back Verified Developer Badge but with new requeriments for new and existing bot developers (to prevent badge farmers). Badge Farmers was the reason of why Discord removes this badge on August 19, 2020. Some requeriments can be...
1) Your bot should be on more than 1,000 servers.
2) Bot owner should had more than 2 years registered on Discord.
3) Bot owner should had a verified email address on his Discord account.
4) Bot owner should had 2FA enabled on his Discord account.
And the existing bot verification requeriments.
I hope that Discord brings back this badge because we work hard and spend a lot of time and money.4
I think the same, it would be great if they give them their badges again.0
Yes it isn't Fair,
Discord Should bring the Verified Bot Dev Badge back0
