Separate 'Manage Messages' into 'Pin Messages' and 'Delete Messages'

    I fully agree. As someone who holds organization in high regard, being unable to allow members of my server to pin important data without providing them the ability to delete anything they feel like is a huge disadvantage.

    I also agree!  Please make it possible for server members to pin anyone's messages without being able to delete other's messages!

  • XiuhcoatlSlayer

    I like this idea a lot! Please do this :)

  • Jack W

    I was about to post the same thing, I really want to give high ranking members of my server the ability to pin stuff since they're so active on the server, but I'd rather not give them all mid-level admin permissions in the process

  • Dora

    Good idea.

  • Lib

    Why isn't this a thing yet? Pinning is harmless, but the ability to delete messages should be for admins only.

  • Shinrod

    Let people highlight important messages without letting them delete every message on a channel ? Sure !

  • Crow Hala

    Pretty please!

  • AoiNoSakura

    Agreed, this is most definitely useful especially for huge servers.

  • Lucidarior

    also adding a "don't mentioned user-x pinned a new post" if a user is in a direct-message conversation with another user, also for servers it would be cool to see a similar feature, which could hide all previous and planned "there's a new pinned post"-messages.

  • zmsl

    plz devs? plz

  • DeadlyOwl

    I actually made a support ticket about this yesterday and only found this post today. Fully agree, those two should definitely be separate features. It takes less than an hour to implement that, I don't know why this hasn't been resolved in 8 months at least apparently.

  • alpha-carinae

    Please implement this devs, pretty please!

  • Yevheniya

    Why aren't you guys implementing this? It's been almost a year. This is simple stuff.

  • DaisyHogg

    This would be a very nice feature for sure!

  • Souls

    It would be very nice to allow server staff to pin messages without giving them the ability to nuke anyone's message as they see fit. One of these two things is far more susceptible to both damaging accidents and potential abuse than the other. There's no reason I should have to take on that risk in order to allow someone the fairly low-level responsibility of being able to pin messages.

  • enigmatix

    Seriously, I have to wonder whose idea it was to fold these 2 features under the same permission. It's like mixing apples and oranges.

  • AndyM

    Where is this, as it's been a while since the original suggestion was made?

    +1 for this idea.

  • webs

    Support, a server I moderate heavily needs this command based on how we operate. Please, devs.

  • raven

    This would still be very useful and probably pretty simple to implement?

  • Vaei

    @Revali @Suspense That's unrelated to this topic. This topic has nothing to do with deleting your own messages, only other people's. Please read the OP again.

    @Yevheniya Sadly I don't think it will happen. It boils down to the low vote count, it's only slightly over 200 after almost a year. In general doing things this way makes sense, but because this is something that affects moderation and not every single user it will naturally get less votes even if it's more important.

    The only thing we can do is hope someone at Discord happens to see it by chance and brings it up with the team responsible or someone promotes the suggestion out of necessity that gets a lot of upvotes.

  • Zyga

    I also want this so much!

  • koneko
    Pretty sure I knew someone that complained about pin/delete messages being an entire permission altogether. I vote that we also get a separate "delete messages" only perm as well
  • Specially Trained Derp

    This really should have been done ages ago.

  • tpickles

    Would love to have these privs separated. Pinning is very easily something you can pass off to your average member, deleting anyones message definitely is not

  • poisonedwaters

    I would like to see the permissions be much more granular.

  • moanatari

    I completely need to separate this two option too 

  • Bron 🇦🇺 [bronfoth]

    Good advice for this important thread in the comment above - to repeat - ENSURE YOU UPVOTE the first comment. Is there any other way to get this issue elevated in urgency?

    In my opinion, it is likely these permissions were lumped together in an effort keep the 'permission option menu' to a manageable size.
    For me this a safety issue for my members. Discord needs to be assisting server owners to prioritise the safety of their members - and this includes allowing the allocation of permissions that are appropriate to each member.
    In my mind, each permission should be separate. If desired, categories could be formed to assist new server owners, but these particular two permissions should not be together automatically in such a category.
    Pinning is a helpful task and cannot be destructive to the server.
    Deleting can totally destroy a server.

  • Perrydotto

    This has been longtime overdue. Please implement this. I have users who love using pins for their own organizational purposes but I don't want them all to give the sweeping permission to delete messages too, it's a huge mismatch of permission power and should not be rolled together.

  • Sophia | AmpUpRadio

    Wow, I can't believe it's literally been 3 years, and something so simple like this still hasn't been changed.  It's still funny thinking about how "pinning" and "deleting" messages shouldn't even have to be mashed together in one permission.  I mainly just avoid pinning altogether throughout Discord now because of the fact that I'm so used to it being stupidly mashed together with the deleting messages permission.  Discord, please fix this!
