How can we improve Discord?

Search exclusions

I would love to see a feature in search for exclusions, Stuff like:
not-from: user
not-in: channel
not-during: date
etc.

I find that a lot of times I know what I don't want to find. And having exclusion filters would be an easy way to filter out the extra noise.

    Also `!role: @bannedusers` would be great any role based querying, especially for bot makers.

    “not-during” is the same as having both the “before” and “after” tags

    I use the exclusion features in Google searches a lot, and I was really broken-hearted to discover that this didn't exist in Discord's search feature the other day. To describe what I envision using some of the examples below:

    !from: aeaeaeae#2549 before: 2017-10-01 after: 2017-09-19 !during: 2017-09-29 bo? exa*

    This would search for comments from ANYBODY but myself (aeaeaeae), before October 1st and after September 19th, BUT NOT on September 29th, and it would return results where people would say 3-letter words beginning with "bo" like "boy" and words of any length beginning with "exa" like "example."

    I would also like to see an option that allows you to search ALL Discord channels you are in...not just the one which you are in doing the search from. Or does this already exist?

    @snek "!" (meaning "not" in Java) also works. "!from:Retard#8008", "!in:#nsfw", "!during:today"
