This post is all about my suggestion of a folder update.
For now, the only things that are considered folders are server folders and categories.
My suggestion is how to upgrade all of these to make all of them better.
Allow for folders to be placed within folders. This will make it way easier to make big servers without the need for a member to do excessive scrolling, or make it easier for the user to scroll through their countless joined servers. This will allow for servers to have a cleaner look unless the server owner decides to add an excessive amount of emojis to their names.
Then we have the new types of folder, the role folders. Yes, I do know that it is a common suggestion, but i will just tell it's functionality now. So there will be 2 types of role folders. Indexed and unindexed. Indexed folders work the usual way of the highest role has power over the lower roles, while unindexed folders, roles have no power upon eachother, they are all equal (insert ussr anthem joke here). Role folders will work just like regular roles in terms of the permission ladder, meaning folders that are higher up will have power over lower folders. By the introduction of this, users will have the ability to make the member list a dropdown menu, so they can search for the person they are looking for without scrolling through 1000 other members. Role folders will also have inheritance, meaning you can set default permissions for a folder, then build upon them when making new roles inside it. Dropdowns will also be available in the roles section of the right click menu. Role folders will also be able to be placed within role folders for that moment when you have the urge to make a megaserver then do nothing with it. They will also be indexed in the list so you can make 2 equal folders if you would want to.
Overall, I think that adding all of this will unlock the possibility of merging already large servers easily, as they could be merged in the click of a button, and they would be placed in their own folders of the brand new even bigger server. All the members will also be moved with it and keep their permissions.
