gg sans is Discord's new font which has recently started being rolled out. Much of the community, myself included, do not like being stuck with this font. Here are a couple of solutions with pros and cons:
Introduce an option to toggle between the current and previous font.
- Allows users to pick their preference
- Forces no one to use a font they prefer less
- More work than doing nothing
Revert the change
- Satisfies the complaints about gg sans
- Creates new complaints about another matter of preference
- No development work
- Decent community backlash
Beyond gg sans being unappealing to many, I've seen at least a few say it actively causes them pain. In a situation where the choice affects only the end user, I see no reason not to give the option to the end user themselves.
Unfortunately there's a decent chance Discord is able to entirely ignore the complaints without any serious problems. The best way to encourage changes is to cancel any payments and voice your concerns here (along with leaving a positive rating on posts like mine).
