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)

    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

    Yes please, allowing us to nest categories would make organizing discord channels a lot easier and less cluttered.

    This is really important as many of my servers get overcrowded by to many catagories that actualy have 1 main categorie for example: coding or games etc

    The ability to have channel nesting with sub-categories. This has a lot of use for heavily information/text based servers. For some servers it has become an issue not being able to sub-categorize vast amounts of text, making the server look like it has an endless list of channels. Patiently waiting for an update in that field.

    Category<Sub<Voicechat/Textchat

    Or

    'Category'
    'League of Legends'
    'Voicechat'
    'Textchat'

    I think that a nice feature would be Subcatergories. In one Category, for example, Games, you could put a subcategory, like putting in Fortnite or any game.

    Yes, there are suggestions for Categories within Categories, but for the sake of argument, can we make the feature three to four levels deep? for the Server Owners that want a more finessed approach to making Text, Voice, and Role categories? Not only would it clean up the side bars a bit, but I'm sure it would save time when the program only has to load so many roles since it has closed categories.

    If you Devs couldn't tell, I'm voting for Role Categories and sub categories as well.

    I have a Battle Royale server and I want one category for Fortnite and sub-categories for different platforms (Console, PC, Mobile) this would make this SO much more simpler

  • Nutchapol commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes, category nesting would be good
    especially when you seperate your texts and voices

    So I will show this idea in a better fashion (in my understanding)

    _Main Category_

    -Sub Category-

    #Channel
    >Voice Channel

    -Sub Category-

    #Channel
    >Voice Channel

    _Other Category_
    And so on.... am I interpreting that correctly?
