Default server notification settings

    I'm typing this post to voice a complaint that many moderators, admins, community leaders, and tournament organizers of multiple servers have regarding server notification settings.

    Primarily, this complaint revolves around the red "1" notification you see on a server.

    The desired settings result is:

    Not to receive a red 1 or sound notification for "everyone" and "here"
    Not to receive a red 1 or sound notification or white circle status for any new messages on the server
    Not to receive a red 1 or sound notification for any new events added on the server
    Not to receive a red 1 or sound notification for any "@s" of your name including replies
    Only receive a red 1 notification for ROLE MENTIONS (no sound)

    The options we only have are have are:

    No sound, red 1 notification for direct name "@"
    No sound, red 1 notification for direct reply with "@" toggled ON
    No sound, red 1 notification for direct role "@"

    ALSO, when you "reply" to a user or a user "replies" to you WITHOUT ping on, it is not moved to MENTIONS. It should still show up as a "reply" somewhere! Otherwise the reply thread is completely lost. To me it logically makes sense that it should still be seen somewhere without notification or ping sound!


    Consider the following example: If a user with a moderator role on a server selects "suppress all roles and mentions" as a moderator then they will not receive a sound or a red 1 for any pings at all!

    There needs to be more options. Having no sound is already easy to configure, but why do we still have to get constant red numbers piling up when you don't want to see replies or direct ping "@"s? People often "@" a moderator name DIRECTLY instead of the role. We want to ignore the direct "@" name mention at all costs, including replies, and only receive notification of the ROLE ping.


    Add the option to suppress specific server role notifications (no red 1)
    Add the option to suppress all pinged reply notifications (no red 1)
    Add the option to suppress all @"username" notifications (no red 1)


    Please consider adding the feature of the way direct replies with "ping off" are received, such as placing them into the inbox under MENTIONs - or make another space for it.

    Suggestion: introduce more granularity in default notification settings. Notification overrides as default settings options would be a good start, e.g. only @mentions, suppress all role @mentions, etc.


    In other words, I'd like to see the granularity of the notification overrides on DMs also be available as default states in the Notifications page of App Settings. My use case is straight-forward: I receive no desktop notifications, but in certain servers I have enabled mobile push notifications on direct mentions, and for certain DMs/group chats I have enabled notifications for direct mentions or on all messages.

    It would have been much easier for me to set a default notification condition such as “only direct mentions” and then go through my server & friends lists to override those I did not wish to receive any notifications from.

    Looking forward, having a default restriction like this would help avoid the circumstance where I have push notifications enabled and am added to a group chat, causing every message in it to send a push notification to my phone until I manually set an override. Currently, all DMs/group chats automatically send push notifications when notifications are enabled on mobile, but I can't (and don't want to) block invitations to group chats.
