    Hey Discord devs,

    Perhaps you would consider opening your UI source code? We will _find_ the bug and patch it. :)

    I don't see it listed here: https://github.com/discord

    I know it's an electron app--I've had the main process crash on me before w/ a system alert.  I'm ready. Tap me in.

    Me

    Discord

    *beep*

    Me

    I'm in over 50 servers.

    Discord:
    *beep* I can't tell you
    *beep* I was only programmed to beep

    Me
    FFFFFUUUUUUUUUU

    Discord
    *beep*

    This is seriously annoying and critical I believe. It makes me want to uninstall Discord, it is that bad and annoying... Too bad still no update on this...

    I DID uninstall it for a while, esp. since the desktop app doesn't work.  When I reinstalled it, I muted all the channels except for the one I want to be alerted to all the time.

    Well, there does seem to be multiple solutions to deal with this. First, change notification/mute settings for every channel in all of your servers. This can be supplemented by staying on top of marking things as read. Still, new channels get added and going by my email inbox, keeping everything marked as read doesn't really work for some of us.

    I think a decent addition would be to keep the existing visual cues they have, except use a different color for servers/channels that have been active in the past couple of minutes. Or maybe make that time configurable. You want it long enough that if you stop to read a message, everything else doesn't go back to white before you're done reading the first message. This might be too visually distracting, but a color fade to white based on time passed would be nice so you can easily pick out the most recent activity.

    There actually is no solution, just the workaround of muting everything.

     

    How hard can it be to add the red 1 for the notification that already works when you got pinged with @ ?

    But what you're asking for won't actually change anything at all. Instead of bold white for unread, they'd be red. Maybe with a number by the channel which lists the number of unread messages, but an unread message is still an unread message, no matter what color you make it. How is discord supposed to know which channels you want marked red instead of bold white unless you go in and configure every server/channel?

    Dude, how many unread channels are there on your discord right now? For  me its a few hundred  and I don't even know which server it generated.

    You don't understand the problem, apparently because you're only on one server.

    I understand perfectly. I also have TONS of white channels myself. But explain to me how to distinguish between a red channel and a bolded white channel. What should it look like. What if you aren't at your computer and check again an hour later, what should it look like then? What if you don't check for 24 hours, what should it look like then? At that point, you have just as many channels with messages, only they will be red instead of white. This is why I suggested timed red that eventually goes white.

    Maybe there's a setting the server manager can control this with. On my Tim Black fan channel and one of my gaming channels, it does show a number in a red circle that tells how many unread messages there are.

    jrc you do understand that not every white channel generates the sound, and that you can't see white channels on the server list sidebar, right?

    Q,

    As mentioned in this thread more than once, there is a little white icon to the left of each server to note that there are unread messages on the server. Then you click in to see which channels are white. If you don't know what I'm talking about, right click a server and mark all as read. If you want each server another color, I have to ask the same questions as earlier. How do you want them to look after you're away from your computer for various periods of time?

    As far as not all messages beeping, I don't know anything about that since I keep so many white channels I don't notice. I assumed all new messages were beeping. But you've got me curious now so I'll probably test that today or tomorrow. Do you know how discord decides whether a message is beeped? Is that a setting that the channel admins set up? Cuz if that's the case, then yes, I would agree there's some utility is making some stuff red. More stuff for me to test, I'll have to create my own server now :)

    Sorry for all the messages today peeps, I'm really bored :)

    Ah, I think I see a simple situation/solution.

    Muted channel = white

    Unmuted channel = red

    Seems so obvious now but nobody put it in such simple terms :) You still have to manage your channels well, but it's doable.

    Hilarious that my comments get censored because I call them out on their incompetence.

    All my servers have that white mark, it's not the same as a sound notification.

    Since no one gave me a solution i had to deal with the beeps for 3 days and in the end i literally wanted to punch my pc to bits. But instead i reset my whole pc and it stopped happening to me. Its the only way to end it in some cases. Hope it helps

    Phoby, in the future you can open task manager, scroll down to discord, and then close it. It doesn't fix the overall issue of wanting to know where you're getting beeped from but at least it stops the beeping.

    Hello. When is this going to be fixed?? It's ridiculous. At least make it possible to set different sounds for direct messages and posts in channels!

    Same Problem here. drives me crazy!! Please fix!

    SOLUTION: It's Fixed now. Some servers might configure wrong notification settings here and there. If you join one of those servers Just right click on server icon -> Notification settings -> and click only @mentions

    DrSupreme is wrong. The problem is the fact that no one can track down what channel on what server the active conversation is happening in.

    Workaround:  Shift + Esc = marks all channels as read. Then wait for one to light up, and you'll see there's an active conversation there. It's a pain if you're in many servers, but it's the best workaround I've found.

    The cause

    1. Discord server notifications can be set to:
      • Notify on any message
      • Notify on @here, @everyone, and when someone mentions you
      • Notify when someone mentions you only
    2. The server owner can set "Notify on any message" to default
    3. Discord has zero useful visual indicators as to where a notification sound is coming from when #2 is utilized
    4. I'm pretty sure that Discord sets any new server to "Notify on any message" by default if the server owner doesn't pick one.

    A variety of solutions

    1. Don't let server owners set "notify on all messages" by default. Who thought this was ever a good idea?!
    2. Discord uses a tiny white dot to notify you that a server has message activity of any kind. Color this dot red for servers that have their notifications set to "All Messages". This isn't hard.
    3. Warn the user that the notification policy is not defaulted to "@here/@everyone/@[my username] when they add a server to their list.
    4. Bounce, pulse, or otherwise signify which server icon is responsible for a beep sound.

    How are we two straight years into Discord's most annoying "feature" without a fix?

    This is getting on my nerves as well. Everytime I try to do something on discord (like open it), it KEEPS BEEPING.

    I was kind of rooting for Microsoft to buy them and offer some Microsoft half-assed support which is better than full-assed support that we're getting now.

    Still broken, after all this time. Discord is too busy trying to get new people than to take care of those that helped to make them so popular.

    I would like to have been a fly-on-the-wall during the discussion of putting this feature in the app.

    "Hey - check this out.  I made it go 'beep'"

    "Why does it go 'beep'?"  

    "I dunno.  But isn't it cool. I guess it could mean that something happened that the user might be interested in.  But, we won't show them.  You-know ~ sort of like a game.  Find the beeping noise"  

    "Hmm....well I guess so.  Um... what was the purpose of this app again?  "
