This suggestion would create a badge on a user's profile and community of experienced and famous moderators on the platform. The same way one can apply for Verified Bot Developer and Discord Partner, they would be able to apply for this position and the main factor would be previous experience moderating / managing large discord servers. This would reward said staff members of communities with a badge that makes them stand out from regular users on discord, as well as showing everyone that goes on their profile that they are a verified moderator and know what they are talking about. This would also reduce if not eliminate people's ability to impersonate staff members, since almost all staff members of large servers would be in the program. There would be no rewards other than the badge, and if Discord feels like dedicating some more time to the suggestion then they could make a Verified Mods only discord server the same way there is one for partners. This server could be used to brainstorm new suggestions for servers, testing new features, etc. I'm not really advocating for the server, there are other ways for that. I'm mainly suggesting the badge. Let me know what you think in the comments and upvote if you agree.
