Make Verified Bot Badge



  • Donovan_DMC

    I would love to be able to verify bots, though a few things here:

    Most of the raids across Discord are caused by users creating lots of accounts and automating all of them, having a large audience and taking advantage of that, or compromising accounts via some other method.

    I don't really understand what you mean by "Secured Request Header". The dynamic ip bit doesn't work if you switch hosting, that's unavoidable for most sizable bots, I've switched between 6 hosts in my bots 3 year lifespan. The "most do shards" bit doesn't make much sense, the gateway forces you to have shards after 2500 guilds, and after 100k (EDIT June 15th 2020, it's 250k now.) they force you to use specific shard counts. I also definitely do not agree with the open source bit, this would bar the vast majority of large bots from this. While this would make it much easier to see anything suspicious, the posted code in most cases is not what is running. (some compiled/transpiled languages like TypeScript look completely different from their source, and the config files and other secrets that are left out), so it's not really solving that problem, there isn't a way to solve that problem. On the "must have the Discord Developer License" bit, I disagree with this, you shouldn't need to pay for verification, that would be an indirect payment gateway. Otherwise, I would love to be able to verify bots.

    Donovan, The Secure Header and the IP verification is made with website, you need to go to the developer app and enter an single IP or more, Of couse Big bot will be accepted even if they dont have open source. This is a solution for Small bot, i fight to get small structures accepted by this way.

    For Dev Liscence it's for separate Trols from Serious users.

    And remember this structure is for Discourage not serious bots to be posted, and this is proposition of solutions against this problem:"How to Authorize smalls bot" because i dont want bots with potential to be on the edge.

    But thanks to you i edited the post to be more with you.
