Allowing us to use the same number on multiple accounts
Like the title says, we should be allowed to use a Phone Number on multiple accounts at once, this can be useful if you have multiple accounts and there are some which you really want to use but you need to verify by Phone on these accounts and asking a friend or family doesn't work and you can't afford a new Phone Number. Also maybe a time limit to prevent abuse, let's say something like 1 new Phone Number per week or Month. And if you are adding the new phone number it will ask you what you want to do or you want to remove the old account or add it to the new account and remove it don't remove it from any accounts.
This is a very good idea, if you need to verify other accounts but you only have 1 Phone Number then this should fix it!2
The 1 week cooldown is good, because else people will add infinite accounts with their phone numbers, so the 1 week cooldown is good for this.2
Discord's policy of 1 number per account is crap. It seems you can't even use the same number on a new account even if you delete your old account.
The discord devs need to understand that some of us need to use multiple accounts in order to keep work separate from personal stuff. So I need at least two account, but ideally 3 or 4. This isn't rocket science.
For example, Twitch allows up to 5 accounts on the same number, and if one of the accounts receives a site-wide suspension, the rest will be suspended too. That's totally fair and effective to enforce bans, while allowing users a little wiggle room. It's even more important for discord to allow that because we don't just use it for entertainment but for work and other things.1
