make threads multilevel with nested replies
After using Mattermost in a large organization setting it is quite clear that threads need to have multiple levels. Meaning I should be able to reply to someone else's reply and have it show up indented under his. This would be extremely useful once threads are made collapsible. Think of Reddit comment threads.

I generally can follow several threads of conversation without trouble but something like this would make it easier, requiring less mental energy to organize what is being said. That basically equates to greater productivity. I fully agree that this would be a valuable upgrade to Mattermost.

I agree with this as a great feature to be added. Heck even if when doing a reply to a message in the thread and it not pointing to the parent_id but just to the message_id that is being replied to would be an improvement!
This is key for a thing I'm hoping to build on top of mattermost at the moment. Currently it looks as though message.parent_id always points to the root of a thread, rather than the message you were replying to. Fixing that and then rendering correctly look like the next steps, but there would be UI/UX issues once things get nested enough...
