It’s pretty much been a week since the new rebrand was launched and support and social media reps keep telling us to write here in this forum, fill out a survey and that “accessibility is one of our greatest concerns” (even though all of this is also hard to look at and use for the same color problem as the app itself)
I dont understand how you can continuously lie to everyone that it’s a big concern for you when you continue to actively ignore hundreds of posts and complaints about accessibility on every platform including this forum, twitter, reddit, and tiktok.
I used to use discord a lot, I have active servers I own as well as developing my own bot and I have barely been on or talked to my friends since the update because it gives me a lasting migraine within a few minutes of just looking in the app wether on mobile or desktop.
Not only are so many of us fighting for this accessibility we have to also constantly put ourself in uncomfortable situations if we even try to talk about it on social media. Before you know it people who aren’t affected come and attack people trying to genuinely explain why they can’t even use the app anymore and discord chooses to respond to those people instead while continually ignoring us.
Further more, you ban and don’t allow the use of modifying the program. So if people want to modify it themselves you can potentially ban them for it.
Adding the old blurple back as a color scheme option along side the new one, and maybe even one in between, would solve the biggest issue at hand.
Let’s be honest, fixing a hexcode to change a color isn’t something challenging, yet no action has been taken nor as a proper response been published by the company.
Do better discord.
