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

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.

    I'm honestly finding myself agreeing with this. Being able to pick which channels you can look through and what date you're looking through would help speed up searches greatly. Being able to see the messages from kicked or banned people would help too.

    Please allow us to search for posts on a specific date using something like "on:(date)".

Miss joy ask me to contact prophet jeremiah omoto I contacted him to help me bring back my husband and he ask me not to worry about it that the God of his fore-fathers will fight for me. He told me by two days he will re-unite me and my husband together. After two day my husband called and told me he is coming back to sought out things with me, I was surprise when I saw him and he started crying for forgiveness. Right now I am the happiest woman on earth for what this great MAN OF God did for me and my husband, you can contact prophet jeremiah omoto on any problem in this world, he is very nice, here is his EMAIL contact: or watch him television marcylandtv com .

    My problem with herpes has caused me many traumas,especially in my sex life.I was so afraid of infecting my boyfriend, I suffered the embarrassment of visiting dermatologists queries hundreds of times.Unfortunately,they did not find a definitive solution to my problem.The solution came from the least expected place. By reading in a specialized forum on the subject,How to cure Herpes simplex virus completely.Many people had tried, with excellent and quick results.I had nothing to lose so I decided to use this method to eliminate my herpes. spent six weeks using this method and my herpes completely disappeared. I recommend this method to all people who want to eliminate the herpes from their body forever,contact

    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"
