Remove ID verification for Bots

Not planned



  • Vrezmo

    I wasn't aware of this problem until neko chan was made no longer available to join discord servers, discord is taking itself too seriously here. I understand both sides of the argument but ID verification is way too far. Anyone else feel like discord is building a more questionable rep?

  • Dickscord

    this is absolutely useless, it's equivalent to asking for a passport and other information when you get to 100 subscribers on youtube, discord please fix this I'm only 13 ffs 

    and my parents think discord is a cult so theres NO WAY they're ever gonna do this for a discord bot

  • Moi

    I totally agree! Me and my friend worked extremely hard on a bot, and now we can't grow it past 100 servers! How stupid is this? As students, we don't own the right to our passports, our parents do. And we aren't old enough to get a driver's license either.

  • OF3K

    I agree!

  • alfkarl

    Why dose discord not just add a report as spam button for users

  • juancho

    this definitely is discouraging me from making my own bot

  • Gill Bates

    How is this fair

    Are you trying to kill of your platform? I am under 18, and I cannot provide any ID to you. Why do you have to do this, even as a spam prevention method? How is this acceptable. I have to provide my ID like I am travelling to another country? I'm surprised you even dared do this. I used to like Discord and it's policies, but now you made me hate you. My bot cannot surpass 100 servers because of your stupid ID verification requirement. Why do I need to provide my ID as if I am a company? At least provide reasonable alternatives. I know you probably will not see this comment, but if you do, PLEASE consider all the young people under 18, who spent their own time and money just to be stopped by a stupid system.

    alfkarl I agree, they could just add a report feature instead of making this stupid ID system.

    Here, I've taken this question in a more productive/discourse-based direction:

    #360052654733: How is "Verification" ID data used?

  • JohnSmith777779

    Discord doesn't care about the users. There isn't much of a reason to because they can always find more.

  • Queen Komand’r

    I completely agree with the bot owners and understand their situations 100%. There has to be a way to petition this to the developers of Discord so that they realize their mistake, and remove this verification step completely! This is outrageous! Why do you need an ID, when you can just verify with other methods as stated?! Removing the maximum amount of servers ANY bot can join, especially Neko Chan, is definitely one that MUST BE DONE!

  • Asterio🪐

    yes please remove it. my bot got added in 75+ servers yesterday and my parents wont let me use the passport as they think its some virus site , yes VIRUS site

  • ha

    Yeah, there's like a lot of other ways to get your bot verified or just they can make another verification system to prevent people from verifying scam bots instead of making people reveal their Real life Information (basically their doxx)

    Also it's been a year and I think they don't care anymore
