    I see this has 4 downvotes. Can someone shed some light on why this is. Do you not agree with the idea? Is my formatting bad?

    No idea why there's many down votes on this but i've been searching for such thing for the same reasons but i haven't find any.

  • Mirana

    I can't understand why people down voted your post either. But I think this idea would be very useful. I would use it for a different purpose though.

    As a person with anxiety at the moment, I would love to be able to send an auto-reply to my private messages when I just can't answer to people right now. It's something simple and maybe a niche way to use it. But I know it would help with my stress for not being able to answer for days... Or months. And it would help my friends not to worry too much about why they don't have an answer yet.

    I agree that it's needed. It's more convenient that way when I'm studying or something like that. I do not want to be bothered with a red badge notification with DMs when I'm trying to study. It gets annoying when they clearly don't see my playing status with "Do not disturb unless urgent."

  • SatansLittleHelper

    "Hi! I'm currently on Vacation and if you're seeing this then I have this on to inform my friends and family who use Discord, that I'll be away for abit! But don't worry, I'll see the messages you send me when I get back and I'll reply then!"

  • ・ Bearby 🔪🌹꒱ˎˊ˗

    Yes Please, been needing something like this for so long

  • LoganDark

    Self bots aren't banned so the premise of this post "Since self bots are banned ..." is wrong.

  • Nellag

    Hi @LoganDark can you please tell me where it says self-bots are allowed.

    I can quote from the developer documentation:

    "Automating normal user accounts (generally called "self-bots") outside of the OAuth2/bot API is forbidden, and can result in an account termination if found."

    Kind regards

  • LoganDark

    Oh, they updated that?

    Last I checked only USER bots were banned, and also doing weird crap like friend-requesting people or DMing them without permission.

    If you ask Discord they'd probably say to not automate anything, but if you do make an auto responder and they get mad at you for it, you can just shut it down.

    I doubt they'd ding you for it, if it's insignificant like that.

    Actually I used to do the reverse of this, I'd log into bot accounts using the official client. lol, they patched that

  • TomCat

    Defo need this <3

  • PhoenixAstra

    I need this. I get panic attacks severely when I am socially overwhelmed

  • Lowell

    This would be VERY useful for server admins/moderators. 

  • iara

    I need this please :') I'm getting so many DMs and whilst I want to only open dms to a specific role in my server, I understand that's a bit complex but people keep dming me for something that they have a channel for in the server. I literally have my nickname set as "don't dm me unless can't resolve" but no one listens. If there's an auto reply where I can just be like "hi so if you're looking for support pls go to #support instead" it would be great (and only for a specific server).

  • Aawesome

    Why do people downvote this?


  • LoganDark

    Wow, people are totally going to abuse this. Server owners/moderators are going to set absolutely pretentious auto replies, people are going to create some ridiculous quiz when you try to message them and they're away, etc. The latest comment is a great example of this. I don't think this should be added because of the abuse potential

  • builderpepc

    I think this feature is definitely needed, but maybe not the question-reaction idea. If you're not available, then you might as well read what the person is saying when you get back instead of looking at their responses to your multiple choice questions.

  • Trainer Ash

    But why not have a bot deal with situations for you?
