Move Messages

    I can see this was mentioned that it might be added soon on Discord's Twitter - THREE YEARS ago. What happened? This is almost a no-brainer: admins/moderators should be able to move chat messages when a user posts them in the wrong channel.

    I too wonder why this isn't a feature already. I see people post messages in the wrong channels all the time and it'd be MUCH easier to just move it to the right channel instead of lecturing people about it. 

    [Edit] And to also help admins make people conscious of the move while avoiding shaming their users, the users who had their messages moved could get a message from the Clyde bot that only they can see. 

    And of course as Hexenritter suggested, please make it where we can select multiple messages for those long conversations that spring up in irrelevant channels.

    I suggest voting in a single request for better visibility

    I would also suggest going one step further and allowing the admin to select multiple posts at once for movement.

    Seems like Discord dosen't care to add this rather basic admin feature.

    Noob to Discord here.I was just searching for the way to do this, and surprised to see it has been on the "waiting list" for three years. Can anyone from Discord comment on why this has been left behind for so long?  It seems like a basic permission that admins would use regularly.

    So there's no way to move messages at all??

    Nope. If you want to move a conversation thread, the participants have to copy/delete/paste their posts in the order they were posted. One. By. One.

    Hello, fellow user that just google searched how to complete this basic interaction and found out it’s IMPOSSIBLE. The ability to move messages to the appropriate channel should not be too difficult for the developers to implement, and would greatly reduce the woes admins/mods feels and the shame participants feel for making a simple mistake that could have gone unmentioned. Come on now, 3 years? Do you see how many people have commented in this week alone? Listen to your users. We are your bloodline.

    This should have been a feature long time ago. I'm relatively new at moderating a channel and straight away I'm missing the ability to move posts to other text channels.

    I made a discord group just a couple days ago and already I'm frustrated that it doesn't have this feature... looked online to see if this was a feature I just didn't know how to do since I'm new to discord, and nope!

    Please make this a thing, please make this a thing! I have a server member that insist on posting messages in the wrong channel. It doesn't matter how many times she's asked, she still does it. I alternate between wanting to strangle her and hit her over the head. I'm about ready to change her role so she can only post in one channel but she's a friend's girlfriend and that may cause more problems.

    I definitely agree, it would be very useful to just pick up and move a message from one channel to another. A user perhaps posts a link in the wrong channel, it would be great to be able to hit the option button, click "Move," and choose a channel for it to be shifted to. Preserve timestamp and position in chat timeline, and perhaps send a little private notification to OP, politely letting them know their message has been moved.

    This would be interesting to see, not least because it would help fix messages which got accidentally posted to the wrong channel in a particular server.

    I'd like to be able to move/resend messages to another channel or friend or friend group chat!  Especially ones with discord links in them.

    Should also allow designated users to do it as well.

    If Discord won't do this, they should post some sort of "Won't Fix" response, at least.

    It's such a bummer not to have this feature.

    Of course I can make some rules and scold people who deliberately do not follow those but sometimes it's not about disobeying the rules, it's tired people who just accidentally missed the channel. I don't really want to bother them with reposting and I don't like repost it myself because of two reasons - first of all, that would kind of show off their failure, and second, I'm not always able to do it right away. Also moving a big conversation by myself would look poor.

    Please make this a feature! Users will always make mistakes and only by seeing the post has moved will they learn!

    please add this. its a huge pain as an admin to only be able to request users post specific topics in appropriate text channels and not be able to enforce it other than just deleting a post completely.
