    If I remember right, Discord had added this restriction to cut down some database issues. So Im not sure if remove the limit would bring the issues back, but we still need a API to clean up a channel completly.

    Yes, it's due how their database handle message deletation :

    There is also a technical explaination in this blog article: (mainly "The Big Surprise" part)

    If you need the clean up a channel completely, you can just delete and recreate it (to easily keep the permissions, clone the old channel, then delete it).

    I like this idea because some bots will allow images or links to stay and only delete text... really helpful for gallery channels.

    It's really simple, if it casuses stability issues on db don't delete them, just add a flag in db table to hide them?

    Honestly IDK what happens with developers nowdays..
