Discord has different badges that distinguish a user as a member of specific groups. Badges display on a user's profile card. To access someone's profile card, click them and select view profile by hovering over their avatar.
Badges appear in a hierarchical order, and multiple badges will stack.
If a user has multiple badges, all badges that the user has will appear.
This badge is issued to all Discord Staff. The badge distinguishes users from staff members, and prevents impersonation by non-Discord employees.
Since August 28th, 2020 can every Server owner that meets specific requirements apply for partnership with Discord.
