Ability to collapse forums
Replying to forum posts is great, until you've replied to 20+ posts and 90% of the scrolling you do is caused by followed forum posts always being shown. I know I can unfollow the posts to hide them, but being able to collapse the entire forums channel or even only showing the follow forums post when I've clicked on the forum channel would be amazing.
Agree, definitely would be a useful feature to have.2
This ability is for sure needed.2
Please incorporate this!!!!!! <3333
The desire to compact and consolidate channels is HUGE on my server. We love the organization that Forums offer but not being able to minimize them is a super bummer!2
Okay, so Forum topics are not collapsing by default...
HOWEVER, when I clicked an active voice channel and clicked ''open chat'' to open that voice channel's specific chat channel the Forums are now collapsing. This temporary workaround affects only YOU, however it can be replicated by others!
Click a voice channel > open chat > close the chat = Profit!1
Forums are a great opportunity to clean up chat and the channel list but right now the forums create too much chaos.
The channel list becomes bloated very quickly and topics there are in the order of their creation date. This is super limiting.
If I have a forum channel about hardware, I want people to freely talk in a general post and I want people to create their own topics.
None of this I would want to show up on the left channel bar unless they open up the hardware forum channel.
Just like voice channels, it would help if we could type directly into a forum channel.5
We absolutely need this to happen. The clutter is unbearable in the sidebar. Forums were supposed to alleviate this not make it worse.5
This is desperately needed, I'm surprised they didn't think about it after months of development...4
Absolutely agree. Was just about to post the same thing.
Imagine having 30 posts on a server with 50 text channels.
Also maybe this is an opportunity to rework threads a bit.
Do we need both features? Forums kinda look like a better version of threads to be fair.3
Agreed, followed threads should only show up when someone posts a new message- you can access them when there's no new messages regardless so they really don't need to be displayed all the time, just a massive waste of space2
We’ve been moving our communities from Meta over to Discord and this is one of the biggest issues we are encountering with our forums. It would be nice for admins to set the default behavior of forums to be always collapsed and let users change the behavior if desired 🤓2
drventure I'm glad you want better service than that from Meta. What are the purposes of some of your communities? I'd try to see how useful it were for me to be a member.0
Agreed, this is needed.
Who wants to have a channel list so long you can see other channels? Without it, it completely discourage people from using forums. Because of this, people don't want to reply to many posts to avoid this behavior.1
Yes, followed threads should only be displayed when someone publishes a new message. Since you can view them even when there aren't any new messages, doing so would be a huge waste of space.1
Even if forums can't collapse themselves, if I collapse a category they're under, they should absolutely disappear like everything else. The fact that they don't is frustrating and making them clutter up my server's channel list.0
