New @ tag colors inaccessible for ADHD.
Previously the only time an @ changed color was if it was tagging you. This was great. It allowed messages to be parsed easily and you could focus in on what was specifically meant for you. Now, however, all @s are showing up a new color which is *incredibly* disorienting as someone with severe ADHD. Instinctively I feel like every @ is for me and that is incredibly overwhelming.
Having all @s be colored is one of my least favorite features of both Slack and Teams, both of which I'm required to use for work. If these are the brands you're attempting to compete against with the new rebranding, then you're already failing as far as this user is concerned. You would do well to learn from their mistakes, not replicate them.
If this new feature is not something you're willing to rollback, at the very least could I suggest a legacy view toggle under the Appearance or Accessibility options?
