Let us disable reply pings



  • HaramDingo

    This can either work in two ways:

    • Having the user (i.e. the pinger) using replies to either have their default @ ping turned off or have it in the user settings to select their default, or
    • Suppressing pings from any replies (even if the user above has pings on) in maybe a global setting somewhere. Or maybe only allowing pings from certain people, like people on a friends list or something? Because even though the server settings suppress @everyone and @here, as well as all @role mentions are already suppressed, pings from a post being replied to are not.

    I would place this functionality under App Settings in the "Notifications" section (obviously). I like my pings to come from certain people if they are meaningful, and preferably not during business hours.

    Please do this!

  • Khes

    discord is usually so good about fixing stuff and allowing customisation, why not this as well?

  • trollage1

    yes, this gets really annoying. discord should also make the option to disable pings and reply pings server wide.

  • ads

    as a moderator i can't set dnd. bc i need to react quickly in some cases.

    but peeps keep pinging me on replies, and begging them to turn ping off all the time is not the way things work.

    please, make a setting on sender end or receiver end to turn off reply pings by default.

  • HedgeWizardly

    Agreed, please allow us to either suppress reply pings as users receiving them, disable them across the board for servers, default replies to not ping, or make it clear on replying that "This message will ping this user. If you don't think it's urgent, you can choose to disable it".


    This has caused a couple of issues in communities I moderate and would be a nice solution.

    Been awhile..

    Please allow the ability for users to at the very least to set the default state of on-reply pinging to "@ OFF" or for servers to disable on-reply pinging entirely. This is causing end users a lot of pain and discomfort from both a moderation and participant perspective.

    If it is a structurally challenging problem to solve, the design of the feature itself should probably be re-evaluated.

    The devs are implementing all of these other updates but not this simple thing, pretty hilarious, dont think they ever read here as well so spamming them in twitter posts might make them read this major complaint from the community

    Oh my God Discord, PLEASE offer a way to mute reply pings. I have Asperger's and ADHD, I use Discord for productivity as I run and manage several servers. I can't chat in public servers without getting reply pings, I'm sick of having to regurgitate the same sentences every single time I have to explain to someone to not reply ping me, that I have ADHD, and that I've tried absolutely everything to attempt removing that stupid red [1], [2], [3].

    I finally found a solution a few months ago in the form of a 3rd-party feature that automatically suppressed reply mentions on desktop, but the developer abandoned it and that no longer works so it's back to this hell. Why is there not a single way to mute them? Or better yet, why is it on by default!?

    I swear this has got to be one of the most infuriating and distracting things I've EVER experienced on a platform, GIVE US A WAY TO MUTE THEM PLEASE!

    This has genuinely been causing me mental anguish for well over a year now!

    Second reply to this post because I am actually begging for this to be fixed. Please. Most of my friends are on Discord, but I have completely removed myself from finding new folks to talk to in Discord because I get 4, 5, 6 reply pings after I send a single message and pings are supposed to be for important stuff.

    Please Discord, fix this. Its been two years of this being an issue, adding a keyboard shortcut isn't a solution, it's a water droplet thrown on a fire. Please fix this. Please. I beg of you.

    How has this not been fixed, I've gotten into multiple arguments with users who say "it's too hard to disable" when I ask them to stop pinging me, it is a basic accessibility feature the app lacks.

  • prototype464

    There is a news article about it now. I have been waiting for nearly two years for this to be fixed.

    Why is the only way to mute reply pings blocking people? Fix it already!


  • Marcus Hawkins

    2 years later, it's still an issue.
    Bumping this thread in hopes this will get noticed more often.

  • prototype464

    Still waiting for this Godforsaken issue to be fixed. Jesus Christ, Discord, just do SOMETHING.

  • DoctorDothraki

    Bumping again. Here's a list of useful and distinguishable features requested here:

    **User settings:**
    - Default @off for replies (sending)
    - Remember the @ setting from your last reply (sending)
    - Suppress pings from replies (receiving)

    **Server settings:**
    - Disable @on like you can disable external emojis
    - Make @off the default for all users
    - Suppress pings from replies the same way you can mute a server

    **UX changes:**
    - Remove the easy ping option from replies, requiring the user to tap another user's name to ping in a reply
