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

    I have seen many channels with text and voice channels that could have a place within the category but would not "look good" in the category. So having subcategories would help so your can provide information with ease. Instead of having to scramble between so many channels that are not meant to be in the said category but would have a place in a subcategory.

    Ive been caring for my dogs for 23 years. Ever since I saw this option, I knew that my life meant something other than saving dogs. Thank you for this blessing.

    Having subcategories for roles would be a good idea. I'm in a discord where we constantly make useless and custom roles, and it would be nice to have subcategories for those useless and custom roles, so we don't have to constantly struggle on where to place those roles between. I think it would be a good idea to add, if we have channel categories.

    I had the same thought so I came here to check if anyone else did as well. I own a game discord, that seconds as a community/forum as it's where most my traffic accumulates and I myself have fun considering myself a community developer. I think it's an important feature because I now have 33 channels (4 voice, rest text to organize context and prevent flooding) and 6 categories. With subcategories, I could help sweep a lot of unsightly channels under the rug so that users have an easier time navigating the discord channel.

    My server would HEAVILY benefit from this, it's a server I created for a large (and frankly kind of complex, oops) story I made and a subcategory for some of the already existing categories I have would be amazing for structure

    Let's say you have a 'general category', then under that you can have a 'memes subcategory', which opens up to all the meme channels, then an 'nsfw subcategory' which opens up to all the nsfw channels, ect. This would be amazing.

    I don't understand how this isn't a feature yet! This would be amazing organisation-wise for big servers where alot of different stuff is done

    do you think you guys could possibly add "Subcategories"? that way if you wanted to organize something within a category, you don't need to make a completely new one?

    I can agree to the idea of having sub-categories. Not only mine but thousands if not hundreds of servers can profit from it.

    My Server desperately needs this, we run several services both publicly and privately. Private members still interact with public members so they need access to both, however trying to organize the category tree in a way that makes everything accessible to private members is near impossible as it is right now. If we had sub categories we could easily make a private and public tab to collapse nearly 50% of our server for ease of use.

    please this will be an awesome addition to large gaming servers so that the
    y may make sub-theatergoers for every gam
    er that server so people can have the specific space saved
