I'm shocked at how bad the redesign is. I've seen a lot of dyslexic people on reddit and elsewhere talking about how inaccessible the new font is. I myself get pretty bad eye strain and discord used to be the only chat service that didn't hurt my eyes even in dark mode but now it's got this atrocious neon blue. I'm actually shocked that the redesign made it past any kind of approval when it's a nightmare for accessibility and aesthetics in general, to be honest. it looks like you're trying to knockoff pixar.
I don't think anyone would care if you're trying to attract more groups than just gamers and fandoms but rebranding as aggressively anti-dyslexic, aggressively hard on the eyes and aggressively childish, ugly, and unoriginal is not the way.
But discord will probably ignore this post like they've ignored every other person saying the same thing as me. Might be time to switch back over to a new client.
