    Discord, I really hope you don't do something like "oh this is already done there's message links" instead of actually implementing quoting for real. It would honestly be fine if message links could be given an embed that shows the message content, but leaving it the way it is is not quoting, it's referencing - you still have to actually click the thing to view it.

    BUMPING up this awesome idea

  • Nico

    What do you exactly mean by BUMPING, illuminade? 😏

  • Haew

    I think about this feature everyday when I use discord. I usually use a closing chevron and paste the message content, but not gonna lie, it kinda sucks.

    How long will we be waiting this simple feature? Hopefully, since spoilers have arrived, quotes will too soon enough.

  • LifeSavier

    Discord Team seems not to care, 12K upvotes for this simple feature and still not implemented....

  • Jolirouge

    Earth needs it. Please. Pretty please T__T

  • MapzOr

    You can do it Discord team! The only feature that we need!

  • Hasse

    Or: allow one click user friendly linked reply to a message....

    I must say I started recommending projects to use Discord's biggest competitor for this very feature. Discord is great to connect, chat and forget. Referring to an earlier message however only works for "geeks" (no pun intended) that find it all natural to google for something they need, then find out soon about https://discordia.me/developer-mode (fun!) and how turn it on... and don't mind being stuck with copypasting message urls. For many projects I see using Discord, this isn't a 'real' users' profile.

    So it gets very ineffective (time consuming, chaotic,...) and frustrating for any community onboarding "average users" and aiming at any structured conversation, e.g. around a new tool, to support, to report issues and bugs, gather suggestions, debate methodology,... or whatever context where different types of angles blend together. Then, the ability to reply to a specific message, maybe even branch the conversation, becomes an essential key feature.

    Ps If opensource, at least one could cofund such a feature ;)

    We need this asap. Whatsapp already has this feature, please add it.

  • heidie

    Very much needed!!


    This would be strategically SO great for Discord. It would dramatically enhance the user experience by allowing topics to stay alive longer AND in doing so, this feature won't close any doors for Discrod in any way. No-brainer.

    I think this idea was already added several times, more normally called "Quote Messages".

  • Kypria

    Added on the application ? yea that's common on forums 

  • KyoLikesTrees


  • Count Delinard

    Do we not have any dev confirmation on this at all? this is the one feature I like in Whatsapp.


    Group chats are noticeably chaotic without this feature, it's a must! :)

    DO IT.

  • maccraft2014

    Great idea! I'd get extensive use out of this, and it would definitely help on larger servers.

  • trooperhx
    I'm not sure I understand. Are you asking for something like a quote system, where you replying to a message show the original message that you replied to as quoted? Or maybe you just want to reply in DMs in have the message shown as a quote there? Or do you want your message to just appear under the original message in a way similar to what reactions show up? If your suggestion is the latter, I think that it would get pretty messy and hard to properly keep track? Now, messages make sense, because new messages appear at the bottom of the chat, in order. Having messages appear in between already existing messages would get a bit confusing in my opinion.
  • Anatomis (Perfect)

    Or maybe he's talking about commenting a message... Or something like that? I am not really sure I understood it, too.

  • Paranuya

    "what about a function where you can quote messages? you use holding lmb to mark the text and then rightclick to quote or maybe an icon shows up that needs to be clicked for quoting it. in the message window you can see the quoted messages." 


    thats what i wanted to have as quote function.

  • timothee

    Yes totally agree, we really need this !

  • Bree

    Yup, this feature is really mandatory - and I really wonder why this was not added already.

  • Uspex

    I'm actually amazed that this isn't implemented yet

  • thetechguy
    yeah we need this feature. it is like reddit for you can quote.
  • CMEPTb

    Oh, come on! Do we have to beg you much more to implement this? This will make it so easier to keep your replies within the context. Group chats are a mess without this feature. Sure, you can use it like ```quote```, but should it be the only way? If so, then be consistent and remove the emojis, because we can type em like ":), o_O, etc" or even use the ASCII to draw our emotions. Please, be reasonable.

  • Anatolia

    Actually I don't consider this as a "feature". This must be an essential part of every chat app. It's ridiculious that Discord team ignoring this.

  • ヤシュ ミッタル

    I wonder how long will you take to build this feature?


  • tally.bookman

    I'm afraid it's never going to happen. It's got over 12,000 votes NOW, and according to one of the posters to this thread, this is not the first enhancement request for this feature, and at least one in the past got many thousands of votes. I, too, stopped recommending Discord for anyone but hardcore gamers who find it's other features really useful. I really like Discord, but only use it when I have to, if there are more than a few people involved. I have monitored this conversation for a few months with misplaced optimism but will stop now. 

    I think the real tragedy is that the Discord team is missing an easy opportunity to build community rapport and build up trust and engagement by at least responding and explaining WHY they won't implement this feature. Saying nothing at all makes the entire community feedback activity seem like a sham (it probably isn't, but it makes it seem that way); it makes them look like they don't give a damn about large numbers of people taking the time to engage (it's only a little time, but we all know how rarely users engage this much at all) - which also is probably not true.

    Finally, it makes the development team look incompetent. There may well be a very good reason why the fundamental architecture or some other foundational decision made a long time ago means that this particular feature is almost impossible to implement; or impossible to implement without a massive rewrite. But in the absence of any explanation, it looks like the dev team is just not good enough to figure this out; which can't be true, but same thing - it looks that way.

    But given that years of persistent conversation as well as assiduously following the stated procedure for community input has yielded exactly ZERO response from the Discord folks ... I'm giving up on it. Sorry to be negative and hope I'm wrong!

    @tally.bookman there were conversations from devs from long ago on Reddit where they told that e.g. search will be a requirement before quoting will be done, together with some other feature which we have for a long time now. I'm too wondering why we don't get this feature since it's really a common feature.
    One reason could very well be that there are still some major technical hurdles and since BD is already providing quoting as basic feature, they maybe think they leave it because people who want it can use that.
