    I would love to have this implemented. 

     

    However, it would also be helpful to move messages to other channels.

    I agree, it should be possible to move one or more messages into other channel or thread.

    this is needed, cuz usually we would make a thread out of some discussion that already started, we can't expect everything ahead.

    And a dedicated permission for it.

    I would love to see this feature added as well.

    Yeah +1 on this.

    Admins/mods can make any message a thread retroactively.

    Users can make their own message a thread retroactively and then this cascades recursively (each reply, each reply's reply, etc. etc. moves into the thread)

    Yes, It would help a lot to be able to move messages in thread, or to create a thread from a list of messages, so everything is moved as we create the thread.

    So we could both use thread to start a conversation, or to archive an existing conversation that happenned. It would also permit to delete message from a public board while allowing mods to still be able to read it.

    Being able to create a thread from messages from another thread will allow mods to limit thread "hijack".

    Tech Inside. MS Tech and Discorder. The sooner you implement a capability to move threads or messages to different areas of the discord the better. This would prevent a congestion in fields set by the admins thereof. Truth be told, for an independant startup you have a lot to learn. If you should respond quicker to requests no matter which way they lead, you would find yourself in a more professional field of business.

    This is essential. The current implementation of Threads is pretty much useless outside of events on all of my servers. By the time anyone starts a thread or notices one's been started most of the conversation has taken place in the normal channels.

    We have a some announcement channels in our 1000+ members server and this feature would save us!
    Please implement a feature to automatically move replies inside thread if the original message is a thread.

    Please add this, there are many cases when I and other server members wish we could retroactively move conversations to threads

    See https://support.discord.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360030113312-Move-Messages

    This already exists in some other Discord-like apps (FlowDoc)

    Messages can be drag-and-drop and merged as new threads or moved to existing threads.

    Users can move their own messages.

    Moderators can move everyone's messages.

    Yes, please. We need this.

    As others have said, often we don't know in advance when a slightly off-topic message will devolve into a full on new conversation. By the time we realize that the conversation deserves a thread of its own, it's too late to move just one message to a newly created thread.

    bumped, uncluttering my server and i want to not loose any messages in the channel so the ability to move the messages into a thread would help immensely considering that the messages im trying to move are quite important

    Being able to move messages into threads would add a massive amount of value to the feature. Definitely +1 this suggestion.

    Threads are severely limited in application without this feature. I've just started trying to use threads and it's not a great experience.

    This is a feature needed urgently after threads came out. No one can anticipate to which direction a conversation goes. And in special channels like photo-only, GIF-only etc. where people can also comment on the material shared, moving messages is a must. I personally don't have the heart to delete a bulk of messages that members send about a photo or something, which on the other hand causes a mess that would never fit such a channel. Threads feature is a pretty good feature, yet without this implementation it will always be lacking.

    It's weird that it didn't happen.

    DISCORD!!! Can you guys make this happen??? We need to be able to move messages in and out of threads to keep everything organized. Gogogogogogo

    Threads are useless without being able to move already existing conversation into a thread. We can't predict the future Discord, what is it you don't understand?

  • Demistic

    this would make a ridiculous amount of sense, and allow organization of channels and posts MUCH better.

  • xbot

    Gods yes, such an *obviously* sensible idea: sometimes you start talking about something in a channel, and a few comments in you realise it'd be more useful as a thread, but then "forking off" at that point is not useful because half the conversation is missing.

    This is essential, threads have been pretty useless on my channel otherwise.

    Also it'd be great to have replies to other comments become threaded. People don't like responding to other ppl because the convo looks convoluted. Can't have multiple convos going at the same time so most ppl rather not engage.

    Yes, please. Just ran into an instance where I would love to be able to move some messages to a thread.

    Discord in general needs more moderation control over text channel messages.

    This functionality would be very useful. Please add it in future versions.

    This is absolutely necessary. Over the past few days my members discovered a new fixation and their posts spammed up a channel that would otherwise have had pictures and now it's filled with "text prompts." I don't want to delete them because it's still a creative subject in that channel meant for that, but i also don't want them just sitting there even after we make a thread because there was already SO much.

    An option to select multiple messages and THEN select "create thread" would be great instead of only being able to create it from one.

    Please, do. Without this, threads are near to useless in practice.

    Just had an instance of going WAY off topic about .ico file formats in the #artwork channel. PLEASE implement this! I wanted to thread the conversation earlier but we were already dozens of messages in!
