Currently when selecting messages in chat the only moderation action is moving the channel. You should be able to also bulk delete them. For example if somebody spams a bunch of messages instead of selection them and then bulk deleting you need to do it one by one. @mcwumbly did give a good suggestion by having a channel you can move it to instead but bulk deleting would still be better
Are we going to be able to bulk delete messages like posts in a topic?
For example if somebody spams a lot of messages you currently need to delete them one by one
(I needed to do this the other day)
Folks have brought this up, but I haven't heard as strong as a case for it as you just made now. Seems like a think that'd be helpful in this scenario. A workaround in the meantime: create a private channel and bulk-move the messages there
