What is Discord Tag? How to Create Discord Tags

Let’s take a look at what Discord tags are before we get into what they are used for. If you’ve ever used Instagram or Snapchat, you must be familiar with the pain of being unable to choose a username that you truly enjoy.

Most applications simply utilize usernames to distinguish between users, which may be a disappointment if you had your heart set on one that was already used. Many of these applications also don’t let you alter your username unless you erase your existing account and create a new one.

Discord, on the other hand, is renowned for its extremely configurable user interface. And if you’ve looked around the program, you’re undoubtedly aware that you can alter your username, set a new one for each channel, and get precisely what you want (find out how here if you didn’t already know).

And, unlike other applications, Discord has no restriction on numerous users using the same login.

Given this, how would you know which user is the one you’re searching for if you wanted to add a certain person? Discord tags can vary in this situation.

Learn everything you need to understand about the Discord tag, how to alter it, and anything else connected to it in the sections below.

What is a Discord Tag?💁

To address the topic, A Discord Tag is a username and a discriminator combined into one. The latter is a four-digit number (2413 for instance) that is produced at random.

To distinguish the username from the discriminator, a ‘#‘ is utilized. As a result, a Discord Tag is a combination that ends up looking a bit like this:

username#discriminator

Discord Tags are very essential because the program allows many users to share the same login. The Discord Tag’s discriminator aids the user in recognizing other users with the same username. You could choose whatever 4 digit number you like between 0001 and 9999 to use as a discriminator.

It’s worth noting that, like the username, several people may have the same discriminator. When it comes to the Discord Tag in itself, this is not the case.

Two users can never have the same Discord tags. The username#discriminator combination will always vary.

There are two points to note when adding someone to discord:-

  1. To send someone a request, you must have the Discord Tag Combination.
  2. The username#discriminator combination is case-sensitive. You will not be able to find the correct individual if you capitalize letters where they should not be capitalized and do not capitalize letters where they should be capitalized.

There is another popular tag on discord, it is called the spoiler tag. This tag should not be confused with the discord tag.

In fact, this spoiler tag serves to mark different points within a message as a spoiler to a game or a movie climax. Once you get this tag, you should proceed with caution to viewing the message.

How to Locate The Discord Tag

Discord Tag is put next to the username, as previously said. They (The name and the tag) are both separated by a hash.

Checking the Tag on a PC

You must first be logged in either on your browser on in the desktop application.

How to Create Custom Discord Tags

For users with either a Discord Nitro classic or a Discord Nitro membership,  or users who are Discord partners, it is possible to modify their tag if it’s available.

Users with a significant following on Discord are known as Discord partners. The Discord partnership program is open to owners of Reddit communities with more than 8000 users/members, content producers with 10,000+ followers/subscribers, non-profit organizations (NGOs), and big gaming communities. You may apply on the Discord partner website if you meet the requirements.

You’ll need to utilize a bot if you don’t have a Nitro membership or aren’t a Discord partner and want to alter your tag. This, however, prevents you from receiving a personalized tag and instead assigns you a random one.

What Is Nitro and Nitro Classic?

I have made mention of these earlier, but what really are they?

The terms Nitro and Nitro Classic allude to Discord’s premium subscription services. These two memberships are pointless for casual Discord users. They can have a great time using Discord even if they aren’t present.

These subscriptions are more recommended for individuals who spend a significant amount of time on Discord. Those that spend a lot of time on Discord, either playing or working, will need a membership to use all of its capabilities.

How to Modify a Discord Tag for Users without Nitro Subscriptions

It’s conceivable that you don’t have a Nitro or Nitro Classic membership. Chances are that you are not a  Discord partner, either. You may, however, still be able to modify your Discord Tag.

In certain situations, you’ll need a bot to update your Discord Tag. Using a bot, however, has one drawback: you will be given a changed Discord Tag. You are unable to choose your own Discord Tag.

To utilize a bot, you must own or at the very least be the moderator of a server. It’s conceivable that you’ll wish to modify your Discord Tags again after you’ve done so. In such a scenario, you’ll have to wait at least one hour. The following are the procedures to changing your Discord tag:

Open the bot that says Dyno Discord on the website https://dyno.gg/. You would first have to log in.
