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)

    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

    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.

    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

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

    Discord pls make sub categories, here's example:
    (Category)Important stuff
    (channel)News

    (Category)Chattin' and havin' fun
    (sub category)Games
    (channel)Shooters
    (channel)Simulators
    (channel)Other
    (Sub category)Sharing
    (channel)Pets
    (channel)Ideas
    (channel)Music

    I think i won't be so hard to add so please do it, it will make sorting of channels way easier and comfortable. So on small screens(mine is 1280x720) we will have more space to play with.

    Please-- it is very crucial for text-based roleplaying groups to have organization like this-- just like others have said below! Creating category after category can get cluttered, creating a category with sub-categories that you can collapse or expand (like regular categories can) would benefit so much for example-- a fictional location with multiple areas/ and room locations to go to. With the help of sub-categories, you could select a general location, and expand on the areas/places to go to WITHIN the sub-categories. Easily collapse-able, so that you can make room to easily scroll through the server entirely without having to sort through rows and rows of.. categories with tons of channels!

    I think it sounds nice as long as there aren't too many because that could get confusing or cluttered. I'm really down for anything though.

  • SuperKeeem commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Why even create a limit to the amount of subcategories we could have? Discord roleplay groups that rely on organization to make their entire system work would extremely benefit on having the option of creating as many subcategories as they need, even within an existing subcategory. It does open up the possibility of people pointlessly creating subcategory after subcategory for the funsies, but why not allow those that need the extra organization the option?

    Would be huge organizer for my gaming group to be able to tier categories within a larger one. Main Game --> Campaign 1 / Campaign 2 / Campaign 3. Could then easily collapse entire game group if we were using a different system that day. Would be JUUUUUGE!
