    Discord usernames are changing to remove four-digit discriminators. Display Names are being added so how you appear to other users stays the same. We will be assigning priority to choose your new username based on when you registered for Discord, Nitro status, and ownership of partner and verified servers…

    Starting this month, however, we’re making some big changes to how usernames and identities work on our platform…

    The biggest problem: our current usernames can often be too complicated or obscure for people to remember and share easily…

    More than 40% of you either don’t remember your discriminator or don’t even know what a discriminator is. That’s a big problem when discriminators are required to add a new friend.
    Across Discord, almost half of all friend requests fail to connect the user with the person they wanted to match with, mostly because users enter an incorrect or invalid username due to a combination of missing discriminator and incorrect casing. ..

    In the coming weeks, we’ll begin notifying users when they’re able to update their account to a new username, so be on the lookout for an in-app prompt when it’s your turn. ..
