Colors are extremely harsh to eyes as a disabled person

    I'm a fellow autistic person (Diagnosed with Aspergers when I was 10, am 23 now). I wholeheartedly agree with everything you just said. I don't appreciate the new colors and logo at all because they are very hostile to someone with Autism in particular and cause a strain on the eyes, I genuinely don't understand why they would even change the logo and font in the first place because it was amazing and unique in a way that was extremely positive.

    It's been so frustrating seeing the past few updates being pushed through when it just looks and feels like everything goes in the opposite direction; especially with this one. I didn't notice the issue with the emotes like you did, but I found myself that on Dark Mode the background and spacing gets really messed up with the reaction emotes which is not fun at all. I think the previous layout was just fine so I hope they really reconsiders this move.

    Not incredibly related, but as someone who gets migraines very easily from bright colors, I agree wholeheartedly. A toggle would be perfect.

    100% agree with this as well

    I was hoping that the new color and font were joke similar to their competitor made but apparently it was a real thing. The new color is very uncomfortable to look at and in the app the disgustingly bright blue logo is sticking out like a sore thumb whenever I'm chatting in DMs.

    The old color was recognizeable and comfortable for eyes. I preferred the old font for the logo too but my main issue is the annoying color that I can't change...

    i'm autistic and it dislike this new update. I don't like change and I don't like how this update was not optional. the colours are too bright and i want to go back to the old design
