    Honestly, working in tech it kinda baffles me too, but from what others have said here, Discord also tends towards the "SURPRISE! NEW FEATURE!" rather than actually responding to direct requests like this. Someone did email them...it's somewhere a few pages back in the thread, and got some kind of info on it. Truth be told at this point I've forgotten what it even was. 😂

    There was a previous message (now well buried) where Discord said we hear you but won’t comment on on future features. They don’t want to promise something that doesn’t work out, nor commit to a timeline.

    Reading these most recent messages has given me a little different perspective on what others are looking for. Personally I don’t like Slack threads as I have a hard time telling when there are new messages, and often lose things that are only in the thread and not also in the main channel. Notifications isn’t an issue for me-I’m personally just looking to group related messages.

    Though as someone doing bot development, I can also see making a change to message structure like this potentially causing issues with how messages are processed and if not done very carefully, could impact/break existing bots.

    This is the main reason our company isn't switching to discord from Slack.

    Threads would make migrating from Slack much more appealing.

    Teams is even more appealing than Slack

    Threads!  Please!!!  A lot of the channels I'm on are technical and a single #help channel isn't enough.  Questions get interleaved and no one knows who's responding to who.

    How is this not implemented? I just joined a decently large discord server and it's a complete mess. Impossible to follow a discussion and just a massive wall of spam.

    If nothing else, you'd need to put a limitation on how many people can be active/part of a channel at the same time.

    +1 for threading. IMO it's the last feature needed in order to replace forums.

    Atm it's chaos trying to search/chat in a single channel, especially when you have 10/20/30+ participants - everyone is just talking over eachother, discussing separate topics (spur-of-the-moment topics that don't warrant a separate channel, but would work well as a thread).

    Ping - having joined a few member groups on Discord recently I have found this feature really missing. 

    Why I prefer threads: I come in to a group, see a conversation a few messages back I want to contribute to, but there's now another conversation going on that's newer. I can quote, but that interrupts the existing conversation, then you have two concurrent topics, which gets confusing fast. That can scale to any number of simultaneous conversations as the number of active users scales.

    With teams and members are geographically located, there is 80% times someone outside of the geolocation would comment or reply to a message. And, its very difficult for the person to follow different message that is floating around. Its a chaos if that response to a message floating around without tied to parent.

    I hope this is implemented at some point soon, it makes conversations a lot more organized and neat. I use Slack at work and that is the only feature that Slack has over Discord, even though I still prefer Discord.

    Also would much prefer Slack's approach to threads than Flowdock's. Flowdock's brings no value in my opinion, just retains the messiness of the channel and adds colors to threads (which btw is probably not very colorblind friendly). I'd also prefer not having to memorize which shade of blue my thread is.

    Discord, you're the most awesome piece of software that I've ever seen. Please, add this functionality! Make our lives easier!

    Seriously, why is this not a thing. It needs to be.

    It's a major missing component that's holding us back from transferring some very large community groups into the service.

    My tech friends recommended a move from Slack to Discord. I was very much surprised that they do not support 'Threads' in the text chat channels. It is, without doubt, the one thing I truly miss. I am surprised that this has not yet been implemented, seeing that these suggestions were posted a few years ago.

    I probably will be taking my business from Discord to Slack because it doesn't seem like the devs are responding, or even commenting on this feature; something many people want and have been asking for. 

    I don't understand why this is something that Discord chooses to ignore, even when countless people are stating they will switch to Slack, it would make Discord better, etc. This can be an option groups could turn off/on so it wouldn't ruin the experience for anyone who doesn't want it, it would only enhance it for those that do. 

    I sincerely hope that the Devs and Discord take the requests of the community seriously.

    @Julien JP instead of slack, consider moving your community to Guilded instead. It is a Discord compete that has threads as well as many other features Discord is lacking.

    Went looking for how to use threads in discord.  Found this.  Much disappoint.  We can't use it for business while this feature is missing.

    Thank you. I'm migrating over to Guilded because of you, hats off good sir.

    I'm using Discord for business more and more and it has replaced Slack for most of my community groups. The one feature it is sorely missing is threads. Conversations can be very hard to follow without them when more than a couple people are talking. Comments get missed. We end up relying on tagging @people and @roles and pinning everything. It feels like it's an escalation of making comments louder and louder when threads would solve this much more neatly.

    Is the absence of threads due to technical issues / lack of budget for new features, or do they want discussions to feel like the spew of comments you get when watching a Twitch stream?

    I could see making threads an option that mods could enable for the entire server or just for specific channels.

    Please set up this feature, as we are a larger crowd and important messages will get lost
