    Maybe allow a "merge" where only the last X messages and all pinned messages are migrated over

    Will be nice to manage large discords and help a lot to restructure the channel orders.

    I thought the same thing when I had to start thinking of ways to transfer info between channels that aren't needed anymore.

    Has anyone from Discord development chimed in on this, I see it was posted 2 months ago at the time of my comment, we have a similar issue we've grown too many channels and would like to consolidate some without having to sacrifice the message history.  I'll be following this post and would love to know when/if this becomes possibly, or if anyone has come up with a creative work-around/hack to accomplish it, feel free to DM me ogsteviestrow#9765

    Please make this happen Discord! Too many channels but too much history to just delete them. :weary:

    Great idea!  Would be very useful.

    We "archive" channels by making them admin-only, but it would be much better to merge.

    looks like Discord is only interested in suggestions at this point that can make them money?

    Hum.... Just you could make a special category for ARCHIVES or something like that make it private or just READ-ONLY par ROLES etc... and sorry for my bad english I've justmake this kind of CATEGORY ... Its a structured way ... you could also close it, etc.   The new question would be.... Could we make a Category INSIDE another Category.... Kind of self-referenced programming object ? ....lol

    (sorry my very bad english vocable...)

    This needs to become an actual appeal to Discord.

    I don't know the technical downsides of making it into an option to merge channels and whether such downsides outweigh the upsides, I can only describe the upsides known to me and hope to see more users agree with it.

     

    Channel merging allows us to move content from one channel to another already existing one without losing any of the content in either channels. The purpose of this is mainly of a discord server's maintenance background; it gives us more options to keep our servers tidy, but also allows us to keep certain content separate for a limited time that already has a fitting channel otherwise, but we want to keep it separately for a certain amount of time to make sure it's more noticeable by server members, and we want to preserve that content after it's not necessary to keep it on a separate channel anymore, but without having to make it an archive, closed channel that's just going to lay around the server forever because we don't want to remove the content that's in it.

    That explanation might be difficult to wrap around your head without an example, so here's one from my own server.

     

    - Server has general channel for games fanart

    - When DELTARUNE demo came out, it was incredibly popular in server, so we made a separate DELTARUNE fanart channel to keep it apart from all other fanart content as some people would come only to see the DELTARUNE fanart and not the rest.

    - DELTARUNE hype has died ever since by now. There's a whole load of DELTARUNE content in its separate channel that we absolutely don't want to get rid of, but we don't want to keep it as a separate channel anymore either. It doesn't fit the server aesthetics lines, it was meant to be a temporary HYPE channel.

     

    Now we face the choice to either delete all the DELTARUNE fanart content to follow our aesthetics lines or keep the content separately at the price of less-appealing channels list appearance. That choice wouldn't be mandatory if channel merging would exist. The way I imagine it would work is that the content of one channel is placed in the other and follows the chronological server-time order. So the post time of each post from one channel would fit into and between the posts of the other channel, making it look as if there was never two channels to begin with.

    That being said, I'm not a coder or developer of any kind so I've no idea how work-intense making such option is, or perhaps it's not worth the hustle for Discord Team at all if not enough users care about this.

    Yes, please. I just tried clicking and dragging a channel over another to see if this was actually possible. Trying to merge NBA & NCAA threads together to make one basketball channel in my discord with buddies.

    What I'm wondering about:
    If a channel merge would happen, how would you like to have the messages merged?
    A channel containing the message history of 2 or 3 previously active channels, might seem nice at first glance, but it will "corrupt" the message flow time-wise. Someone reading back wouldn't understand a thing about what was being said, as 2, 3 or maybe even more conversations would be merged (zipped).. It is as if you are listening to 3 conversations in a room at the same time: Very confusing, and you would lose the core of all the messages.

    @Master-Guy, not all channels have chronological conversations. Some just have data, like screenhots, links etc.  If they do have chronological conversations where it is important to maintain the flow, and the admin merges the channels anyway, then that is their prerogative.

    This would be lovely. I always check to see if someone else has made a suggestion before making a new one. There are times where two channels have the same function and then you realize you should just post everything in one channel, but you don't want to delete it, so you archive it, but now you have a bunch of dead channels cluttering the Discord. Yeah, you can put them all in one category, collapse it and forget it, but it's kind of annoying.

    I am at a point where it would be great to merge two servers or link them to allow the two to share each others members.  I am wanting to merge a friends server with my full service one.  would be very cool indeed.

    This would be an amazing option to have, especially after just recently having to merge a number of channels with others and wanted to keep the some of the old posts. Even if it was only pinned items, that would be good enough. Not everything needs to be merged from one channel to another.

    That would and not work at the same time. If two different conversations are happening around the same time on the different channels, they messages would be mixed and most likely not make sense.

    This needs to happen. 

    @RockstheSquirrel: yeah but you could stick a tag to those merged messages so you know that there was a merge involved. Also, probably one of the conversations wouldn't be that interesting for keeping, and you as an admin can delete the conversation.

    @Calimocho That still sounds like a pain to read. Having to check where the merge was from then reading the message then looking for the next merge line. Having an admin shuffle though all the messages would be worse, especially if it is a long channel(s) with non stop chatting. I would rather have them separate still. So far nothing shows me this is a good idea and can't think of an example of how it would benefit if the above what I said happens. People would get mixed in the conversations more then they already are now if two chats are happening at the same time (Hell, even worse if someone merges more then 2 channels as well, one after and other)
