  • PanzerFowst

    It is awesome, everyone!


    Hacksick, thank you so much for your work!  Really helping out the Discord community with this!  =D

  • MilesOfJam

    I tried doing the "request data" thing, but it's useless. it only shows the dm's YOU sent, and not the entire chat. i really need the dm's between a person and i but i cannot talk to them irl, we arent friends, and we arent in a server together. discord should really add it as a feature </3

  • hacksick

    jelly you use the id to get their discord tag, and using discord tag u can send them a friend request, after sending the friend request, and now you see your chats with them, look 

    so now you can see your chats with them you can join my server if you have any doubts.

    If you accidently "x" a message, simply try dming the person again and your old conversation should show up. Of course, you would have to remember their discord username.


    I also find this annoying because its not just an accidental close thing, discord also closes them for you automatically once you reach a certain limit. I am pretty sure it does NOT close group dms, but it DOES close normal dms. but then I could be mistaken, and have forgotten some group dms that are not gone from my site.

    The thing is, I have discovered that its not that I am leaving those groups or dms, its not that I am losing connection. its that its just being hidden. Because if you know what to search for, in the search bar, you could in theory find it. the problem is that with how flexible discord allows names to be, you could never find someone.

    Not only could they just have changed their name, but their tag too, and probably be using special characters that cant be even typed into the search bar. Which is another issue. allowing people to use literally anything else other than ascii makes it impossible to friend or search for them, because you cant type those and you cant paste a name into the bar without it messing with the formatting some.

    I would propose like others here that we get some simple sorting. allow us to folder up dms into groups, this would not only make it a lot easier to keep track of different types of friends from different groups but also removes the need to close dms, pretty much forever. you could wrap the same functionality of "closing" them to save ram into a collapsing of the folder. Then if people want to save on ram, they can folder up every dm they have except for a couple, and there you go.

    I see no reason this should not be implemented.

    what's discord package? gosh im sucks at this but thanks for making this tho.

  • hacksick

    Come to our discord server we the new update, it is easy to use and faster, and we will help you out

  • Proxxy0

    I just noticed that I lost a bunch of old DMs of a few friends who arent around any more. I had never closed them due to not wanting to lose what pieces I still had, but it seems as though discord decided I didnt need them anymore.

    I really wish this was a feature. It would mean the world ti have that little bit back, y'know?

  • OldBot Admin

    Please Discord team implement this feature, it's crucial in any messaging app, I can't believe it has been more than 2 years people are asking for this everywhere and you didn't implement something simple like this.

    I'm so tired of closing DMs by mistake and then needing to fry my brain trying to remember the nick of the person to be able to search for it, it is SO FRUSTRATING.

  • hacksick

    Anytime mate

  • awwab

    just get the data request and download it, try to figure out which folder has the dms of the user you want (.csv) and with that .csv file there's .json file, you just open the .json file on the browser it should be 1 line, 2 recipients, the latter one is what you need to put in this website and you should get the user.

  • hacksick

    @awwab that's exactly what my program does, if u have been using an account for long time then you're gonna have many message folders and it can seriously take you like days at a time find the specific dm, but friendcord does it in just SECONDS. so think about it

  • Methodical


    I've figured out an easy way to reopen closed DM's if you are not friends anymore and don't know their ID (even works with deleted accounts). Here is a quick tutorial I've made:

  • hacksick

    Bro that's exactly what friendcord does for you, and you don't even to go through all the folders yourself or search every Id on the discord id website. It just takes friendcord seconds to show you your dms.

    Check out friendcord, and it's reviews, in this server, we have an awesome community of people who are always there to help you out

  • Leviah Deerie

    to make it so it doesn't need its own page, discord could just add a tag in the search menu under "has:" that searches for a user who has dm'd you. then the user who is searching could add more tags to specify who they are looking for.

  • zumzum

    I have found a way to reopen a closed dm. Add me on discord: zumzum#4666

  • fanfan

    Come on Discord team, when are you gonna listen to us & implement this feature?

    This feedback is 3 years old already, yet you haven't done anything about it.

    And please don't advise about finding the name of the friend I closed DMs with. I DM a lot of people in various servers (since it's part of my job), then if they don't reply at all anymore I close the DMs with them. But sometimes I have to reopen past DMs. It sucks that you have to find the other person's account just to reopen DMs. Sending them Friend Requests is obviously out of the question.
