Add an option to change default avatar's color.
I know this may sound dumb but im currently on a streak of no Icon since making my account in 2017 XD
I dont want to break this but the new color genuinely hurts my eyes too look at and gives me headaches if I look too long, I loved the old color and it was very pleasant to look at. Please give an option to change it back, ik alot of people have default PFP's as well so this would allow them to express it as well. (sorry if this seems like a rant, i just do not enjoy looking at this ugly color)
That option exists right now, only go to configuration and accessibility, the saturation bar is right there, take down the saturation to 70% and you get the old Discord Color.
btw: I love the new Color.-2
that does NOT change the default profile picture color.
it's an over engineered "fix" to a problem that Discord staff apparently does not quite understand.
they could have just given us a way to theme. even just simple color-pickers for the colors in the client.
there is a basic better discord plugin that does that which definitely took a lot less time to implement than this.
there is also this mocup that is a lot better than what we got.
I understand what you saying, but Discord has a color brand, which is more difficult than just code what do you want, a lot of contracts and branding identity is in-game, I quite sure Discord knows, So I think that you are the one who is not understanding, you are complaining all the stable platform just for a personalization whims? The color affects you, right? Just turn down the saturation, Discord knows what are they doing.-2
yes, the color does affect me. I have to be on an older version / use ToS violating software to not get headaches.
and I am not alone in that.
turning down the saturation on ALL colors makes the other colors harder to distinguish, making for another sub-par experience.
and I am not alone in that either.
de-saturating the colors already changes the color of their "branding" / "identity" so your argument doesn't really make sense or apply here.
besides. allowing you to customize what it looks for >>>you<<< does not affect branding or company identity to the outside. at. all.
I do not believe they know what they are doing in terms of accessibility. I never said it was done in bad faith but as I already said it's over-engineered and misses the point of what needs to be done to actually be accessible for people with visual impairment.
you could argue for a middle-ground of having different sliders for different colors... but again. over-engineered and misses the KISS principle.1
