    Discord for more than a year has been making decisions that don't suit me, and it's a shame since I've been using discord for 4 years anyway. I hope they retrace their steps and change their decision

    Bobby(Communist Pikachu)#3605 dude, people don't believe that you make bots if you don't have the badge these days...

    Well , i don't think that this decision what the wisest , i see that the badge was a HUGE motivation for all bot devs (including myself) and seeing it get removed just because some minority of fraudulent users bypass the verification system ... that's taking the easy way out ,and  that's on you discord.

    I can see both ways like it would’ve been nice if they gave like a week notice but I don't think they'd likely revert it now since they've changed it and it makes it more special for those that have it currently. Also, if you were Mason and saw this would you not be less likely to revert it since it just proves more that people were mainly doing it for the badge?

    Ridiculous decisions made by Discord. They should add the bot developer badge back and change the requirements for verification. Discord should also make it so you have to send a piece of your code to them, or all of it. If a few people ruin it for many true developers, the process should get a revamp. Developers deserve to be recognized, and the badge could also help them with freelance jobs in the future. They also should have gave us a warning instead of on the day the process was going to change other than just a discord server. I believe they should put out a notice on their social media platforms and Discord Community Updates to inform as many upcoming developers about the change. They should extend it to October 7, 2020, when the massive update comes.

    That is bad, because I worked really hard on my bot and now is Verified and I cant get the badge to show my hard work :(

    how does a badge that does and gives you literally nothing, give you "motivation" to spend hours learning a language and coding a bot. But that's not whats happening here, many who want the badge don't learn the language they want to code in, they just search up some outdated tutorial and start copy pasting some code or some use BDFD to make a bot "easily".

    I get where you're coming from, but devs like me, who are new to coding and want to start some easy project like coding a minecraft plugin or coding a discord bot, want a good challenge to start them off. The rewards from completing that challenge might sway their decision to what they're gonna code. For example, I wanted to start my first coding project to be a minecraft server and it's plugins (I'm an amateur to code but I want to learn) and I switched over to trying to code a Discord Bot using JS, since there are many minecraft servers out there, but coding a Discord bot that's good and gets even slightly popular and gets in 75 guilds will give the great reward of a badge that shows your dedication to the craft. This badge, unlike a minecraft plugin/server, could actually be used to show in an application when freelancing or applying for a small position.

    To be honest, I get Discord's POV, but completely removing it was, as Bobby said, "blowing this out of proportion". There are Discord servers, Minecraft servers, Websites, etc. who get hundreds of applications to become staff or get something special, and they don't just remove the ability to get the rank/badge in hopes that people will stop applying so much.

    All I'm saying is, Discord didn't deal with this properly and they made their decision without thinking, and now they're suppressing the community's feedback to this, thinking "it'll blow over". I, for one, won't forget this decision.

    Why tf?

    I've invested more than 200+ hours in it. I find it very ungrateful and stupid of discord to remove the only real reward. Nevertheless, I will continue to program my bot, as I don't want to disappoint all users of my bot.

    I've always wanted the verification badge. Countless hours wasted making bots, I didn't make bots for the verification badge. But none the less i'm over here paying for hosting and advertising so that eventually I to could get the badge, I am devastated and will probably stop hosting for my bot. As I just don't see a reason to have it anymore, I will never get recognition for my hardwork and people never ask me to make them bots because I don't have the verification badge... Getting this badge was my dream, and at 14 i'd be the coolest having it, on top of that nobody ever believes I know my stuff because I don't have verification. My bot was in 30+ servers, and whats the point of getting the check mark on my bot to unlock restrictions if my bot doesn't use it anyways. Thanks Discord, that was real nice.

    Bruh it was one of the main motivators to creating a bot. I put in all the work to do it and some people wanna be recognised for that and feel good about themselves, yeah maybe the bot still get's it's tick but I want mine too just to say that I actually went through all that work of creating a bot, publishing and getting it verified. Imagine if someone went to war and didn't get the badges for it, sure this is on a very miniature scale but the concept is still there.

    I kinda don’t like the fact that because of some people just working for the badge only, people who work hard legitimately get put to the side as well - I was making a bot and my intention was to help the mods on my friends server and I also realized I could help everyone. The badge doesn’t matter too much, but still after I got my bot on to 75 servers it would pay off to have a nice badge and all, plus I helped people with the bot

    Please add the badge back discord

    yes 100%  discord needs to recheck this one as the community is kinda forcing them to as we all want it back and would be a great addition. it's just a badge, why they removed it isn't really that reasonable, sure people are making fake bots for it but it's just a cosmetic so there is really no reason to remove it. I better see that [not planned] turn into a [planned] soon! edit: I like how the people who disagree with bringing the badge back got nailed by downvotes reducing them to the negative numbers :)

    I hope you're wrong on the fact that discord won't do anything. they have to listen to the community. yes, just because a few people made rotten applications, doesn't give them an excuse to get lazy and stop the badge as a whole. people poured HOURS of hard work and go seriously ripped off when the badge is no longer available. this is a true story: I myself am a bot dev who put in hours and hours making my bot run the way I want it to. I cannot believe discord took the lazy way out and removed the badge. so disappointed, we're missing out on SO much.

    Imagine making a discord bot from scratch, learning about the verified dev badge and trying your best to make the bot as good as possible before submitting for verification but then some people complain that people are buying that badge and so discord closes the badge. I mean it's just one more month till the deadline for restrictions. What made them not even wait for that one more month? That badge was seriously the only perk for the developer and now they're killed it. I agree that the badge should go. But at least announce it a day or two before killing it. I really wish they extend the badge till the verification deadline tho.

    Though I didn't create my bot for the sole purpose of getting the badge, I would've loved a prior notice telling me about the news. It was disheartening; even though it was just a badge, it showed off that you were supporting Discord by creating apps, making it easier for the users.

    Also, if verification is just about getting your bot verified, why let the "early developers" keep it? What if we were developing (or publishing) the bot before the deadline in October? What's different from us and the people who were fortunate enough to get their bot verified before the obscure notification was released?

    I'll continue to work on my bot, but this entire situation is disappointing.

    I feel like Discord just took the lazy way out.

    They kept the badge for those that were able to be verified first, and stopped giving it out afterwards. If they wanted to remove the badge... then REMOVE the badge, don't let a few keep it and remove the ability for others to obtain it who worked just as hard.

    Of course I would like to see the badge return, but if it doesn't then I don't think others should be rewarded with a badge because they were lucky, or knew how to code before I could? I feel that it's just flat out lazy and careless. You had plenty of options to chose from.

    Additionally, you released the badge initially as a reward for developer's hard work, to say they accomplished something. But now I guess it means that you're just lucky. And you took away developer's rewards, and you went back on what the badge was supposed to mean.

    Of course I will still work hard to complete my bot's verification either way, as it is still a great project I believe others should use... but come on guys.

    To discord that badge is just a badge. For a developer who truly strives and spends a lot of time it is an achievement.

    When you remove it because people get this badge in a not so legal way without being a true developer you are taking away that motivation from those who truly strive to have it.

    It's not just a great achievement or a medal on your profile. It's proof that you tried hard and you got it. It can also help you let others know that you are a real developer and not just a guy who copies code or uses github bots, it opens a lot of doors.

    I think the decision made by discord is very bad. Luckily I have had time to send verification for a bot, and we are already going wrong because I would have been lucky to get it to send the verification before

    I have read many disappointed and unmotivated people to keep creating applications, only in this post. Now imagine that to all the people who had as main motivation the badge.

    I just got to know about this change, and I can agree with all of you guys. I've been working on my bot for a long time, and I was really excited to get this profile badge.

     

    It is very sad to see the badge go, and I really hope that Discord will one day bring it back.

    To be honest
    If discord takes out this badge out of the system

    They are basically destroying more then 50% of those who are motivate to make bots

    If that’s there desire , let it be. But they shouldn’t do that , they basically destroying the bot community

    I agree! I think that without this badge it just gives no reward to the hard working developers and it just makes you look like an ordinary discord user when you have a famous bot but you get no credit! Yes there maybe fraud but I think that Discord can up their game and be able to fit in the badge so you are a unique user on Discord. I know that there is a badge next to your bots name but that is it, they should give out more credit to the hard working developers.

    I didn't know about this until now, and I don't think this is a good idea. 

    Not sure that I am the only one who didn't get this news, but I also agree with the post, Discord should have posted DMs to people who are in teams or owner of bot application! 

    Even though I was fortunate enough to apply for bot verification and got approved yesterday, I think Discord really should think about this seriously again. 

    For me, the badge was one of the biggest reasons why I wanted my bot to be verified, and Discord just ruined most of the developer's dream. Upvoted.

    A couple of months ago, I and a couple of friends who were programming students set the goal of creating a bot with many options and that could offer many things to users, I had promised them that if everything went well and we had the opportunity to reach many people and they would give us a nice verified badge, today in the morning one of them found out about this and he was a little disappointed, I understand that many people are not doing things well but as many of these comments say, there are people who work hard every day to do this, And as silly as it sounds to have that badge meant a lot to us, it was a goal that we wanted to achieve and for which we have been working these weeks. I don't think it was right to do this either.
