Group chats timeout
I think it would be nice if group chats that are inactive for, let's say a week or month, gets disbanded.
The backstory here is that when you create a group call, a new group gets created to host the call, which is nice since you can easly recall the people in the group and have a specific chat for that group. The problem is when you use discord basically everyday, and you are a lazy individual (such as myself), and constantly create new group calls because you are lazy and don't want to search through your chats to find the groupchat with the specific people you wanted to call.
This leads to both alot of group chats being created, and alot of "dead chats" staying, which you most certainly wont re-use.
The consequences of this is partly that you get alot of dead chats, which takes up alot of "slots" (the ones you see without scrolling) in your pms, but also that when you want to share something on discord from your phone, it's basically a russian roulette if you will hit the channel you currently are in, or if you will hit a dead channel that had the same people (partly because the share feature on the phone is unintuitive, but also because there are lots of dead chats with the same name as the one hosting the call you are currently in; the active chat).
The way I currently solve this is by sometimes "clean up" the dead chats. This does however take some time, and is really just tedious.
It is because of this that I think unactive, or "dead" group chats (especially those where the name and picture haven't been changed) to be deleted, or auto-left, after a week, month or after some other adjustable time (of course, a setting that does this for you works fine too, as long as you can set exceptions), and is a feature I would love to see implemented.
Edit: Formatting, consistency and the way I express myself
Disagree. Group chat history is important to keep if you care about it.0
Yes, which is why I think a setting which allows the user to customize that should exist, so people can chose for themselves whether they want to keep or remove inactive group chats0
The problem is that when it deletes and the users suddenly need it... They never deleted it and would be annoyed...0
What if they where on a holiday for a long time that would be annoying as AUSsaultBird said0
