Discord:

Discord is an American VoIP (that is; Voice over Internet Protocol) launched in 2015, wherein instant messaging and digital distribution platform that is designed for creating communities. And has got both versions for mobiles and desktops.

The communities here, are named as “servers” made by one of the members of the group. And everyone joins in there and communicate with text messages, voice calls or video calls, sharing media, links, and files (often in private chat), and also live stream games. It can even be connected to other platforms, like; YouTube and others.

WHY USERS DELETE DISCORD ACCOUNT?

What are the reasons to do so?

  1. Very poor management.
  2. People can set only 250 notes to other users, and notes after exceeding the limit get silently rejected by the server and diapers when the profile is opened again.
  3. The server region, the download apps screen, and the add server are always light-themed since begin.
  4. Every server has got a member limit, which has to be raised by its staff. Even after reaching the max limit, it still may show you the join option and after you click there it will load forever. And this was since this explorer was added.
  5. Mismanagement of server screen share.
  6. Communication with it is just unbelievably disorganized.
  7. It has got a blog, email list, Twitter, GitHub, or just can say everything except a well Discord. The only thing that one can assure in this is System messages when it’s time.
  8. Not always reliable, especially while Downtime and it becomes worst when you are in need.
  9. The Discord, it’s the stuff that just doesn’t care about you. Especially when you are the one putting huge contributions to them, and their ecosystem like; making server lists, creating bots, or some useful tools for them.
  10. One miserable one is that it can lock and delete your account on just a joke that is you can never even joke about you being less than 14 years of age. And if you claim so by chance (even as a joke), then your ID is going to get locked and you need to send your photo with your birthdate to them to prove yourself right within the next 14 days. I know, it’s quite unwell to share such personal data with a private company.
  11. The staff is absolutely untrustworthy, either support or developers’ team.
  12. The client mode, which is for adding some extra useful behavior and fix the issues of the app is against the terms of service of the Discord.
  13. The metadata collection. Even if you turn off the data collection switch or use some blockers extension in case using on the browser, it will change its tracking endpoint and no blocker can stop sending data to the new address or tracking endpoint.
  14. Actual despicable actions and despicable people cannot be stopped.
  15. Since Discord is non-profitable and no one has to pay anything adding on with no ads other than those with a subscription for premium plan and investors. Hence at some point, it is going to implement aggressive monetization and it’s a fact.
  16. Security issues, since there are many security and privacy holes in this app.
  17. And most important, the Discord staff back a few months have wiped off the big report boards.

I think, till now you must have got quite a lot numbers of unknown reasons to move out of Discord.
