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

    If you can create small categories in a big category, you can organize them better.

    Me too, I have clutter, some People said there are more Catagories and channels than members and they are so complicated to use!

  • Lih commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    In the Discord is not enough:
    - subchannels;
    - fine tuning of roles (the waterfall system is inadmissible for large formations);
    - fine tuning of channels and categories (again, the problem arises in large formations).

    If these tasks are not solved, then my community will have to switch to the TS.

    This would be a godsend for things that break off a lot. For instance school studies where there are multiple divisions of science and math, or school electives.

    The addition of categories in Discord was great, although we have very limited access to them. For those that really want an in depth user-friendly experience for their members may want a category within another category. Take for example CS:GO You may have a server with many other games including CS:GO. You may want to have a "CS:GO" category, then within that, a "Competitive" category and a "Fun" category.

    I would actually really appreciate this on my server too...right now it's a mess in some of the categories :/

    Picture scrolling through this:

    > Newbies Start Here
    - #welcome_channel
    - #introduce-yourself

    > Server Stuff [TEXT]
    - #announcements
    - #things_we_said

    > Assorted Crazy [TEXT]
    - #animal_pictures
    - #speech-to_text_nonsense
    - #subis_adulting_points
    - #exclamation_airhorn
    - #music_bot_requests
    - #meme_requests

    > General [VOICE]
    = The Lounge
    = The Parlour
    = Discussion Room
    = Sensitive Noodle's Room

    > General [TEXT]
    - #the_lounge
    - #the_parlour
    - #discussion_room
    - #personal_life_stuffs

    > Guild Wars 2 [VOICE]
    = GW2: Lounge
    = GW2: PvP
    = GW2: WvW

    > Guild Wars 2 [TEXT]
    - #gw2_announcements
    - #gw2_events
    - #gw2_helpful_links
    - #gw2_lounge
    - #gw2_pvp
    - #gw2_wvw
    - gw2_fashion_wars

    > Overwatch [VOICE]
    = OW: Lounge
    = OW: Quick Play
    = OW: Competitive
    = OW: Arcade/Custom

    > Overwatch [TEXT]
    - #ow_lounge
    - #ow_quickplay
    - #ow_competitive
    - #ow_arcade_custom

    >Other Games [VOICE]
    - #pubg_general
    - #other_games_chat
    - #game_room_1
    - #game_room_2
    - #game_room_3

    > Personal Rooms [VOICE]
    N/A

    > The Stream Scene [VOICE]
    = Stream Room One
    = Stream Room Two

    > Admin Stuff
    = Office Of The Forest

    > AFK PIT
    = Break Room

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now Picture This, for the games and general sections, etc imagine having Sub-Categories.

    >Overwatch

    = Overwatch [TEXT]

    - #CHANNELS

    = Overwatch [VOICE]

    - #CHANNELS

    (ETC FOR ALL ABOVE)

    The categories and sub-categories being able to be collapsed would allow everything to look SO MUCH NEATER! Right now, scrolling through my server is literally like in those cartoons where people have a list and it is the biggest thing you have ever seen! Sub-Categories are definitely needed.

  • VideoGamesUSA commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Anyone who says that "this is unneeded" (*cough cough* KensonPlays *cough cough*) is completely wrong. My friends and I have a Discord server where we talk about video ideas. This results in one category filled with text channels and voice channels (one of each per idea). Sub-categories (even sub-sub-categories) would make organization MUCH better.

  • Opto commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is defiantly needed, theirs been multiple occasions when I’ve thought to myself: “Man, I really wish their were Sub-Categories.” You have my vote.

  • Gloryddd™ commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is needed. I’ve ran into 3 times now where I tell myself “You knownthey should add sub categories into discord.” I feel it could help server be more organized. You get my vote.

  • ! ! Rapadant.Host - Sion commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    no this is definitely needed. I run on a screen which is 2560x1440, I had to set discord to 67 zoom level just to take a picture of every category in my discord server. subcategories are bigtime needed especially for much larger communities and larger servers who have plans for expansion. and all these categories are collapsed. can you imagine the headache having to hunt for the area which you need to go among so many? https://imgur.com/a/Sg6VE

  • Kenson commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is unneeded. Just create another category with the same permissions and/or prefix.

    We need this bad, On my server I have something for every rank, For example ADMIN:

    ADMIN: *The Category*
    admin-voice
    ----------------- *channel used to divide*
    admin-text

    It would be nice for this feature cause we could legit just have 2 separate sub-categories so one voice and one text. We need this discord bad.

  • 💎Cupcake💎 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    The addition of categories was amazing, to organize servers better, being able to put my channels under certain categories so its easier to find. But basically, im asking if its possible to add subcategories, for example, on my discord server, i have a games category, and in it i have a list of text channels, but with sub categories, you would open that category. and see other sub categories, that have their specified subject in them. (EXP Games>MMO>WoW, BlackDesertOnline, Tera ext)
