The new color scheme is really, really harmful to my eyes.
I'm autistic and I'm sensitive to bright lights and loud noises, I use discord dark mode. Discord dark mode is great and there's nothing really bright.
I would describe the new rebrand as.. "discord light modeification", take a look at this https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E1R9ljIVIAEGpBc?format=jpg&name=large
It's sharp purple on bright yellow, and the reactions are a light color on a light background, it's harsh to the eyes and there's just some objectively bad graphic design choices like having a light color on a light background (the reactions)
Everything's just too bright and busy. On another subjective note, this all feels way to childish, bright colors, wacky fonts, wacky art style, I don't get why appealing to kids is top priority when kids have the hardest time on discord due to bullying or predators.
The discord chat;
The unreacted reactions blend too much with the background, and the reacted ones just don't fit in, they're too bright for their surroundings and bother me a bit.
The pings are just too bright for their surroundings and mess up the flow of dark mode.
This is a nitpick but the new green is too sharp, the old one was nice and blended in.
In conclusion please for the love of god change it back back, it's subjectively bad in terms of graphic design and objectively bad when it comes to being way to bright and the colors not flowing
