How can we improve Discord?

Category Within A Category (Sub-Category)

I like the implementation of the categories for discord. It makes servers look a lot more neater and better to look at, but there are some people that would like more the the main category because sometimes it isn't enough. Having a second layer would be enough, for example:
> Categories
-channels
>Sub-Categories
-channels
(apology for any grammar/spelling mistakes)

    This idea would take a lot of what makes Teamspeak pretty okay.

    But rather than just categories, set it up almost like a Forum-IRC hybrid

    You have your high level Category with individual channels followed by Sub-Channels/Categories with subchannels embedded.

    Category
    -Text Channel
    -Text Channel
    +SubCategory
    --Text Channel
    --Text Channel
    -Text Channel
    --Text Channel
    --Voice Channel

    Allow multilayering for more organization with channels, categories and the like. Especially useful for hubs where some games/subcommunities of hubs require more specialized chats and discussion underneath the one subcommunity.

    I use categories to set for certain dates of planned events. I would like to drag the "date" category (including its channels) and place it as a sub-category in an "archive" category. This would be for reference to see what we did for event on what date and have it all organized.

    How is this not an obvious thing? How many upvotes until something so basic gets implemented?

    It would be better if you could put categories into Categories! Sorting would not fail like in 60% of the time. Maybe name it "Master Category" or something....

    Yeah like if you have a roleplay server you could do this:

    - Roleplay

    + Earth
    + Mars
    - Jupiter
    + City 1
    + City 2
    - City 3
    Channel
    Channel

    This is needed... so I would use a fornite channel as a example:

    Fortnite
    .Text channels
    ..fortnite-general
    ..fortnite-tactics
    .Voice channels
    ..Solo
    ...solo1
    ...solo2
    ..Duo
    ...duo1
    ...duo2
    ..squad
    ...squad1
    ...squad2

    Do sub-categories because because it is very ugly to see on servers see

    I will do a expample with Fornite

    >Fortinite voice channels
    -duo 1
    -duo 2
    -duo 3
    -squad 1
    -squad 2

    And with sub categories you can will do this

    >Fornite Voice Channels
    >duo
    -duo 1
    -duo 2
    -duo 3
    >squad
    -squad 1
    -squad 2
    And so the servers are more ordered

    There’s supposed to spaces between sub category and channel FYI

    Like this

    Category
    ...sub category
    ......channel

  • Logan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This would be very helpful so that if you for example have a fun category, but have to much channels that are related to each other, then the owner can put channels within other category's but keep it under the fun category. Also it would make the server look a lot neater.

  • Kaine Tegner commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    OMG YES. this is the thing we need. PLEASE let it be a thing to make sub categories. It SIMPLY has to be a thing

  • Nick commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    So necessary for larger servers, and would be especially helpful in my case for organizing staff channels into separate sections.

    Categories are great but it would help out RP servers if categories within categories were introduced. This would help server owners keep channels distinct.
