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)

    Ever since they day categories came out, I have been waiting for Sub categories. I roleplay on a a server with 100 channels and it would be amazing if we could have subcategories to keep it more organized and maybe even Sub-Sub-Categories, but that's besides the point

    There should be categories in categories in categories etc for those who really want to organise their server in a certain way

    KEY:
    -> = Category
    --> = Sub-Category
    ----> = Channel
    - = Just a visual seperator.

    This would be so helpful for my Mincraft network. I have many gamemmodes/server types, all different and seperate! This would make server related giveaways much easier.

    I actally asked discord on twitter if they would do this, they sent me to this website (not this particular page tho) and told me to vote for t if they want to see it happen. I hope it is on thier minds now!!

    This is something that I have wanted forever now. I run a server for D&D and this would be so awesome for things like that. I could run two campaigns at the same time, keeping them both separate, and if i ever wanted to, make it easier to combine them together.

    -Catagory
    ..>Channel
    ..>Channel
    ..>Ect.
    ....-Sub-Catagory
    ......>Channel
    ......>Channel
    ......>Ect.
    ....-Sub-Catagory
    ......>Channel
    ......>Channel
    ......>Ect.

    It would be amazing for organization in severs all across discord. As for the Sub-Sub-Catagories, and so on, I wouldn't go past

    >Catagory
    ..>Sub-Catagory
    ....>Sub-Sub-Catagory
    ......-Channel
    because it could end up a lot like the "Folders inside folders/Nested Folders" glitch on iPhones (IOS 7.X) Where it would crash, and even totally break client side discords, or whole accounts.
    (If you dont know what im talking about watch this. It crashed iPhones, basically frying them. https://youtu.be/YBg8-tQzNu0?t=39s)

    All server owners will agree they dont want their list of channels to big. Then you created category. That worked for sometime but it is not enough. You can only put so many permissions per person and it is difficult to configure. If you added sub category (category inside category) you can have your overall permission in the category and then sub perms in the sub-category. Think about it. Also srry I said category so many times xD.

    This actually would be a good thing. I agree with this. It would make everything look much more neat for the servers that want to expand to involve more friends game and rp wise.

    All of my voting. If I could vote multiple times I totally would. Please Discord, make this a thing. ;~;

  • Spooky Vin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    A better way to visually portray this is:

    > Category
    ----> Sub-category
    --------> Individual Channel
    --------> Individual Channel
    --------> Individual Channel

    > Category
    ----> Sub-category
    --------> Individual Channel
    --------> Individual Channel
    --------> Individual Channel

    I really support this and my server could benefit from it so much. Things have gotten a bit out of hand and I'd love the more efficient organization, since I've pruned as many channels as I can!

    I think it would be cool if we were able to place categories within categories. Kind of like subcategories. It would make servers look cleaner.

    Please, i beg of you this will help discords with a lot of channels to keep things organised
