    How do you make a QR code with the app?

    That i do not know, but part of this idea came from snapchat, kik, amd facebook messenger how you can hover the camera over a code, and add someone instantly, but in this case, it's for joining servers (and now that i think of it, that'd be cool for adding people as well, but it's pretty easy to just type a name and a number anyway)

    A QR code isn't necessarily trackable, in the case of people taking pictures of them and sharing those pictures, and that would make it much easier to raid servers/introduce spammers. Perhaps introducing this as a form of 2FA for server invites, but not by itself.

    Interesting idea! I like it! It’s like Snapchat snapcodes!

    I would like to see this because it will make things much more interesting as you can scan it with your own phone but there should be regulations since it can be abused for mass invites.

    QR code scan function source is readily available for about any language still in use. Probably for some that are obsolete and abandoned. If you have the (free) "QR & Barcode Scanner" app on your phone, run it on the image above.

    e.g. 

     

    Joey means QR code, like PoGo uses in the Add Friends function...  you can either enter their 12-digit Trainer number, or just scan the QR code on their device that has their trainer number encoded.

     

    QR encoded invites can be expired just like the URL invites, by expiring the invite URL that's encoded in the QR code.

    Free (just credit author in About screen) QR creation code in 7 languages - https://github.com/nayuki/QR-Code-generator

     

    There's also plenty of free libraries of QR code reader/decoder functions, but if I have to hunt everything down for the developers, then I want credit on the About screen, too.  :-P

    The problem with currently available QR systems is that 1) you must use a 3rd-party application to create the QR code; 2) you must use a 3rd-party application to scan the QR code; & 3) scanning a code in this way opens the Discord browser, requiring a log in to join the server.

    This is needlessly clunky.

     

    The ability to display a server invite link as a QR code within the Discord mobile app, and the ability to *scan* a QR server invite link within the Discord mobile app, should both be easy to implement, and dramatically improve the functionality of such invites.

    It is worth noting this should not be replacing the current invite link system, but rather an optional alternative to it; any invite link should be usable as both manual entry, and a scan code.

    This would be cool for small (even big) businesses, just slap a sticker on  the front door saying " join our discord ! and like a discord themed QR - Code I would imagine having Clyde in the middle and then dots in a random pattern that's unique to every invite link and people can scan it to bring up the "would you like to join this server" page.

    Yeah... its implementation isn't quite what we asked for... instead of hitting the plus sign at the bottom of the server list, then tapping Join Server and being able to scan a QR code there, it's in User Settings and used to login (or to scam people into opening sketchy links that the discord.gg processor should bypass).

    Hold on hold on

    They actually implemented this? I don't know if i should be happy that the devs actually took this into consideration, or guilty that because of... well i never ever thought of scam links, and is it fair to say that this idea got more criticism than anything? Like jeez, im actually shocked all around, and im sorry to anyone who actually got scammed with codes, i almost feel responsible for that now
