    This would be especially useful for servers that have bot feeds or spam channels.

    this is going to make searching way more easier in a lot of situations.

    Maybe even a programming-like syntax. For example, you can type from:user to get messages from that person, but what if you could type not from:person or something similar for the opposite effect?

    yes, strongly agree. I just really want to be able to search for symbols in chat..

    I want it. so much easier and it avoids the agony of remembering exactly what you're looking for (aka the exact words of part of the message you're searching for), but not getting exactly that result...

    Exact match searching would be good. "ring on it" returns dozens of hits for "ring" burying the "ring on it" comment I was looking for.

    @Saku, I'm not sure you understand what OP means by symbols. We're not talking about letters— we're talking about things like !@#$%^&*();,{}[]<>. None of these will show up in search. Searching for something as basic as a comma gives no results.

    I desperately feel the same way

    either doing something like !from: or not-from: or -from: to exclude say bot spam would be very valuable

    a good way to rework this would be to add a 'not' or '-' modifier, ie you could do a search that is [ hello -user#1000 ] to find all messages with 'hello' except those from a user, but also be able to do a search with [ has:link -youtube.com ] if you were looking for a non-youtube link, or [ from:user#100 -hello ] if you were looking for all messages from a user *except* ones that have hello in them.

    Like a parameter of NOT in:#general ?

    @undermaster - they use a dictionary-based search rather than a partial match search. So if you search for "PLA" you will only get exact match results (ie. "I'm using PLA today" would match, "PLAstic" would not match), if you search "PLAN", you get words like "planning" and "planned", but not "planet" or "plank".

    I'm honestly not sure why they went with a dictionary-based search since that's actually more work for worse results.

    @Kierel Shan, my bad. I really did misunderstand.

    Yes, I really want that feature too. that explains why some of my searches wouldn't give me what I want... never realized it was because of the basic symbols ^^

    I would really love to have boolean operators. 🙏

    Discord's search desperately needs this feature.
    There are times where I don't want to see messages from a channel or thread (especially made for bots or spam) but instead, one keyword is enough to bombard me with copypastas from a thread I muted and have never interacted with nor plan to.

    How its been over 3 years since this has been suggested and discord hasn't added this is beyond me. This feels like it should be such a simple thing to add.

    So maybe Discord could implement Regex in their search?

    Possibly even accept regex in search

    !!! this is especially helpful when searching on big servers as discord's search is already so imprecise and I have to search through 10s of pages of messages with /similar/ phrases before it "drops the magnifying glass" . Hopefully they will also allow searching for specific phrases as well (including punctuation) using quote marks like google search does

    Exactly, being able to exclude results "from: bot-user" would be beneficial in some scenarios

    Imagine implementing useful features instead of more ads for Nitro.

    I came to this site just to suggest 1 and 3.

    2 might be a bit of an issue tho, as the way many sites search for word fragments (suggestion 3) by using an asterisk: to use your examples, using "child*" to find "children" or "*read*" to find "rereadable"... or in my case, using "haha*" if you can't remember how many "ha's" someone typed out and you really don't want to make a separate search for every number of "ha's".

    So if Discord wants to use the asterisk shortcut, all ASCII symbols may not be possible. The only way to keep both ideas 2 and 3 would be if they decided to code advanced search dropdown menus, which might be a chore.
