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)

    As someone who uses discord more than any other site, I tend to like to be able to organize my channels into categories. However, due to this, the channels I list under a single category become too long of a list. That being said, I'd like to option of subcategories within a category. For example:

    CATEGORY
    SUB CATEGORY
    - channel
    - channel
    SUB CATEGORY 2
    - channel
    - channel
    - channel

    And so on, so forth. This way it'd be more organized and grants easier access to certain channels, rather than scrolling through a long list.

    Yup, For someone who plans to make a giant community of gamers, for gamers, By gamers and to meet new people to play with, this is 100% important to creating a properly constructed and clean discord that hosts dozens and dozens of games.

    Add Sub Categories please

    My idea was to make it like this

    >Category<
    "CHANNEL"
    >Sub Category<
    "CHANNEL"

    For servers like mine who have multiple game category for themselves

    Like this

    >Category<
    "CHANNEL"
    "CHANNEL"

    >Category<
    "CHANNEL"
    "CHANNEL"

    >Category<
    "CHANNEL"
    "CHANNEL"

    >Category<
    "CHANNEL"
    "CHANNEL"

    >Category<
    "CHANNEL"
    "CHANNEL"

    >Category<
    "CHANNEL"
    "CHANNEL"

    This would be a HUGE plus for someone like me who has a Discord with over 500 people and is trying to branch off in numerous directions with my organization.

    The last thing I want to do is create/manage separate Discords and begin to bother people by asking/requiring them to join another server. Additionally, I like the thought of consolidating my community to a single server and organize everything from within.

    Being able to create sub-categories inside an already existing category.
    For example :

    You got a category called "games" with the sub-categories Shooters and strategy, inside those sub-categories voice and text channels can be put to make the server more organised.

    I have so many game channels (categories) that need to be inside a category so I can just close all of them.

    Would be very nice.

    How cool would it be to be able to create categories where you have subcategories, and only when you open those subcategories will you see the text and voice channels. This makes it possible to make a server much clearer.

    Then inside the Sub Categories we can add Voice Channels or Text Channels

    For Servers that have Multiple Games or Things going on that you can expand or keep it hidden to make it look nicer

    Example:

    Catergoy - Games
    Sub Category - League of Legends
    Sub Category ( 2 ) - CS GO

    ▼GAMES
    LoL
    cs go

    >Games
