Is Godot planning to add telemtry? (collect user data)

Godot Version

3.x.x - 4.x.x


Is Godot planning to add telemtry?
For any reason?
If you go Godot’s discord channel and search for telemetry you can find somany things about it. Some people are saying we are planning to add.
Is it true? Is godot collecting/planning to collect our data?

edit-note: First, I am not trying to troll anyone. I am just trying to learn.
edit: I dont have so much internet and I cant connect discord without vpn (I dont know why?) but for example I took this screenshot from godot discord:

Hey ovo, I already replied to you about this question via DM a few weeks ago, so I’m a bit confused on why you would like to ask it again :frowning:

Can you share the screenshots of those devs saying that they plan to add telemetry to Godot? If you see our latest release, you will notice that we are moving in the opposite direction by adding features to prevent you to accidentally send requests to a server.

So, again: no.
We are not planning on adding telemetry to Godot.

Disclaimer: The forum you are using right now is using telemetry.

Keep trolling these forums and you’ll just get reported and banned…

okay I will share screenshots no problem. I am just trying to learn :frowning:

I am not trolling anyone

and I asked because of last time I cant remember the name of “telemetry” and I think I cant explain myself to you. And I will load images also inşaALLAH when discord opens. (sometimes its not opening I dont know why?)
If I disturb you I am sorry.

From the screenshot you are sharing, you are quoting a person who is not part of the Godot Team, nor the Godot Foundation, and she is not a maintainer. How is that a reason for you to believe that we are going to be adding telemetry?

If we were going to add it, there would be a proposal here first: GitHub - godotengine/godot-proposals: Godot Improvement Proposals (GIPs)

Followed up by a PR at GitHub - godotengine/godot: Godot Engine – Multi-platform 2D and 3D game engine and reviewed by the community.

Discord is not a serious place where to get information about the project, and none of the project’s development happens there. It is a platform where community members chat about whatever they are interested in.

Hope that answers your question!
