The server banner looked nice and worked fine on my end. We should add it back.

Support An official server should look official, a banner is part of that look. Shush (talk) 14:09, 29 July 2022 (UTC)

Support - great example image, i want it just like that InvalidCards (talk) 14:11, 29 July 2022 (UTC)

Oppose - Discord has multiple problems with server banners on Android devices currently, the benefits of having the banner do not at all outweigh the issues it would cause. Kolja 14:13, 29 July 2022 (UTC)

Oppose - There is zero benefit to adding this and none of the functional issues with this feature have been solved in the last 3 years. The scroll resetting still exacerbates the addition of a large section of useless space, as well as it now showing that space first instead of scrolling up whenever you try and scroll up. From a design perspective, you've included quite literally nothing of worth in this proposal, so I don't see how anybody could support in any meaningful way for that reason. zTUG5mD.png Crow  14:16, 29 July 2022 (UTC)

Oppose - Pointless waste of space and mobile Discord still sucks ass -Towelcat (talk) 14:18, 29 July 2022 (UTC)

Oppose - Looks annoyingly blurry with discord zoom below 100% on top of all the other issues still existing FjaraTalkRxSktuY.png 14:47, 29 July 2022 (UTC)

Zoom in then? Not sure why we should withhold implementing a feature because you don't use Discord at the normal zoom level ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ jayden 15:23, 29 July 2022 (UTC)
Considering nobody has given any reasons to implement besides aesthetics, an aesthetic reason to oppose doesn't seem out of place to me. Discord allows you to scale zoom, a complaint that that scaling makes it look bad is as valid a complaint as any support here, it's not like scaling is some magical 3rd party unsupported feature. zTUG5mD.png Crow  15:27, 29 July 2022 (UTC)

Oppose - The banner has usability problems on Android mobile, and since there's no way for individual users to disable the banner I have to oppose. For clarity, the problematic behavior is what I call "scroll priority": YhbxDwv.png Suppose the red dot is my finger dragging down the channel list. Even though I'm at the bottom of the list, the banner gets pulled in every time I move upwards. This wastes the first part of my scroll action and blocks about 20% of the viewport on an already limited screen size. This behavior is actually really interruptive when switching between channels quickly - if you have an Android device I highly recommend demoing it on a server that has a banner (like official RS). I don't find the aesthetic change worth this trade in usability for 60% of our mobile users. Riblet15 (talk) 18:33, 29 July 2022 (UTC)

Oppose - As much as I think having a banner would be nice, as an android user, I have to oppose per Riblet.  BlackHawk (Talk)    18:44, 29 July 2022 (UTC)

Oppose – It doesn't really add anything notable while I think any server looks cleaner without a banner, aesthetics clutter just for the sake of it. It also comes at a cost of vertical space, especially on Android. --julia talk 18:50, 29 July 2022 (UTC)

Oppose - I really wanted to like this, but the implementation on mobile is so, SO bad. When I closed the first thread about this, I was hoping that the Android issues would get fixed and we could try again...but it's actually gotten worse in the last couple years, not better. Bummer TBH. ʞooɔ 18:55, 29 July 2022 (UTC)

Regrettable oppose - Per Cook. I really like it on desktop, but I can understand why we wouldn't want to implement a feature that worsens the user experience for certain people, for something that provides no benefit outside of being aesthetically pleasing. I like pretty things, but this will have to wait until Discord fixes their stuff — if they ever decide to. Owl (t | c) (osrsw) 19:27, 30 July 2022 (UTC)

Closed - a server banner won't be added to Discord. Technical issues with the banner remain. Isobel talk page 12:55, 8 August 2022 (UTC)
