    I was about to mention that I run into the same issue myself.

    It's uncertain how it happens exactly (whether it comes from people logged in on Mobiles, or people moving channels when they can't see all of them) but it does create a lot of chaos.

    To add to the post above, on top of allowing/disallowing people from moving channels, being able to automatically order them in alphabetical order would be great.

    Ideally differentiating categories and channels. So that channels can be ordered alphabetically in a category but categories be  manually ordered.

    thank you i was trying to find a way to move channels from category to category and you answered my question on accident XD but this is a good idea ill up-vote it.

    Huge +1 from me

    Hi, I really believe this feature should be implemented, not only for people such as the above but also just as a general UX thing as well.
    I find myself using a laptop constantly and with how sensitive the clicking function is on the trackpad, I find myself accidentally moving important channels to locations they shouldn't be.

    Personally I think it would be cool to have a little icon per category to lock the channels with a popup that allows me to confirm locking the category. The same the other way around so you don't accidentally unlock the channels to just be moved around again by accident!

    I do not have fine-motor difficulties but I do have a sometimes-glitchy keypad and clicker. I find myself dragging channels around occasionally too. It would be very helpful to be able to 'lock' channels so that it doesn't happen unless I'm trying to.

    I don't even have a motor condition. I just wind up dragging all the time. It's inconvenient and annoying and should really need a confirmation button.

    +1 from me. I am constantly dragging around channels accidentally.

    This is the single most annoying thing about Discord.

    If you don't have your mouse perfectly still when you click, channels move - basically randomly - to a different position.

    This is AWFUL user interface design.

    The "move channel" option should either be an absolute lock that can be unlocked only by positive choice, or put on a time delay that only kicks in after a couple of seconds of a click-and-hold.

    I actually almost wrote this suggestion myself, lol. Here's my now discarded op post:

    I'd like a button on servers you have manage channels permissions that toggles being able to drag to rearrange the channels. It's easy to accidentally rearrange channels when you're just switching the channel you're in, and rearranging channels is a pretty rare occurrence anyways. Obviously people who don't like having it locked can just leave it unlocked!

    This feature is a must have, IMO. Once you get the channels sorted out in a server there is very little reason to move them. A simple checkbox in the server settings would suffice. 

  • Izzy

    Good idea.

  • ~~**—Angel—**~~

    I agree!!

  • Cambor

    I have no motor control issues and my mouse and such are totally fine, but I still find myself constantly moving servers or even channels around by complete accident. PLEASE put a lock toggle on the server list!

    I'm surprised this suggestion only has 50 upvotes. Definitely the most annoying thing about Discord for me.

  • Liška

    Fix it already or we go back to Skype!!
