Get Rid of Phone Verification Completely.
For the love of Jesus can we please stop requiring Phone Verification for Discord Servers and Accounts. Just make it an Email or Something else original for Security. I do not have money to buy a new Prepaid Card every time it Expires. I am a person who is on a Fixed-Income and living in a rural area. I cant just run 25 minutes to my nearest walmart to activate my phone number just to satisfy Discord Developers. Some people dont even have a Cell Phone and its still required in some Discord Servers or their Accounts. Please just read this and get rid of it.
This would unfortunately exacerbate an already incredibly rampant scam/bot account issue. Virtually all grown adults in the United States have a phone. Cellphone ownership is at right around roughly 97%, 85% of which are smart phones. There's really very few justifiable reasons to not have an active phone number (at least if you're American). You can obtain flip phones for as little as 20 bucks, and if you can't afford a cheap plastic flip phone, then you probably can't afford internet and a computer either.
My point is, the vast majority of people have cellphones, those who don't represent a minority and as such there's not real reason to open the flood gates to bots to accommodate the handful of people that do not have cellphones.-1
