Allow threads to become full channels, or channels to be converted to threads
Now that threads have rolled out officially, it'd be really great if their functionality could be taken another logical step forward and allow for conversion either to or from channels.
There are a lot of servers out there with channels they had to create that would definitely fit better as threads that could archive and then be restored as needed, not taking up a channel slot or being visible to uninterested members of the community. With threads now out, giving mods the ability to convert a channel into a thread, allowing for a rename and choosing a parent channel to link it to in the process, would be such a huge boost to the available functionality.
Additionally, as threads start to get used more and more it's very likely that some topics that felt ephemeral at first are going to become more ongoing than expected, and might benefit from the ability to take out of a thread and into a channel. Sure, you could archive the thread and create a new channel from scratch as a workaround, but allowing a conversion would be a better option that keeps conversation in the same place.
+1. This would help to reorganize a few text channels as threads under another channel.0

This is my #1 awaited feature and I really hope that there are plans to make it a reality. It would make organizing older servers that much easier.0
Was just asked this today by my server co-owner. We're trying to reorganise our server and so many channels would benefit from being changed into threads that we could nest under a single archive channel (as opposed to the category we have now with about 50 archived channels).
Having more flexibility in how we use the channel structure would make running complex servers so much better. I was hoping forums would maybe be the answer to this, but as discussions can't be moved around/reordered manually, and the entire tree stays visible for admin/mods (it's only a single channel for members), it's just not suitable.
Discord, please enable channel to thread/thread to channel conversion.
ETA: Let admin make some threads permanent and pin them. We have a directory with links to ongoing threads, but if they self archive, the link converts to #deleted-channel.1
Just gonna go ahead and add my voice to the chorus. Enormously useful functionality that would surely be quite easy to implement.0
+1 I really need this feature. This is a must.0
