Message links should embed the message it links to



  • fishtuna

    This is very essential for open source communities on discord, and probably all communities.

    Having a link to share outside of Discord, that shows a preview, and opens as a Discord web interface anchored at the linked message is a very welcome feature.

    It exists for Matrix chat (Riot), Telegram, Slack, and many others.

    On Discord message id links simply don't work.

    This is one of the worst implemented features in Discord. Outside of the pinned messages dropdown and search bar, you're forced to scroll to the message linked to have any idea what that link is linking to, and god help you if you weren't reading the latest messages, because you'll never be able to go back to where you were in the chat before clicking that message link.
