Like Slack, it would be nice to be able to configure a server-level retention policy.
For example, "Keep messages in this server for one year". Servers could choose from a range from "Forever", "Three years", "One year" "6 months", etc.
This would clean up a lot of stale messages and de-clutter the search. It'd also give users piece of mind that everything they send isn't stored for eternity.
It would also help companies / groups justify their decision to use Discord over similar chat platforms that do have message retention configurations (a principle of GDPR).
