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
(apology for any grammar/spelling mistakes)

    I was just about to comment this. I have an automobile server with a crap tone of channels, and it bugs me being a perfectionist.

    Being able to have:
    - Overwatch
    > Quick Play
    > Competitive
    would be super nice to have.

    We just need Category Nesting in general. A tree branching system where you can have however man categories within as many other categories as you wish. The current category system works great, just needs expanded and scaled out more.

    Sub-Categories is a must! With categories out, this is a general clean up for server owners. Now we need sub-categories to better arrange our categories. It's still quite as messy as it is.

    As Discord is growing from being "just a TeamSpeak replacement" to something bigger (and more useful: I'm seeing it being used like a forum), a way to make Categories Tree is definitely a must: the "simple channels list" is rapidly becoming a mess or even just too long.
    Would be interesting if "containers" inherit "child containers" and channels alerts, so to avoid to "dig" into the tree to discover a sub-sub-sub-channel had activity, if the subtree is collapsed.

    Would be great if we could add categories under categories. For example - a 'Voice Channels' category and a 'Chilling' category inside of that category. It would improve organization and make the servers look better overall.

    But could I have a category within a category within a category within a category?

  • Aidan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I absolutely Need This one! Since Categories came out I've been wanting Sub Categories

  • BoXslaXer commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I need for my server this thing because we need to classify the games and the partys of the games

  • JacenBoy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    The issue with this is that it would likely be abused to make an overly convoluted system. One level is plenty.

    We need server list categories, just like how we have them on discord now. This would be great to customize lots of things.There should be categories and sub-categories. The sub-categories will fit within categories.

  • Landverrader commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I was thinking exactly the same, I wanted to structure my server like:
    - Chill
    - General
    - Music

    - Tryhard
    - LoL
    - CSGO
    - etc.

    - Random

    But for now I can only do the main categories, which annoys me

  • VINNI commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I really really hoped this was coming along with Categories, was a bit let down

  • Kenzato commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I love the catagories but i wish we could have sub catagories.

    For example

    One category about Counter strike with other catagories like Modding section inside of it

  • Nyx commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I am writing this because I got canary and I'm testing it out and realised that you can not place a category inside of another category, if you can then I would appreciate some instructions as to how you would do it as I have been playing around with it for the past 3 hours.

    <Categories within categories>
    getting my hand on categories, am I a bit dissapointed by the fact you can't nest them

    just removes one layer of I---- brackets ---|
    as I'm still relying on them

    being able to do something like

    --Text channel
    --Voice Channel
    - Final Fantasy XIV
    --Text Channel
    --Voice channel
    --Raid group 1
    ---Raid discussion

    etc but basically tiered in 1 or 2 sub tiers would be incredibly helpfull to my community
