This is unbelievable, Discord.
Every 2-5 min there is at least one new post begging, PLEADING with you to reverse the changes. You say you're “reading every post” and “are very aware of the feedback” you are receiving- if that is the case, why have you not taken action? Not even a statement? If you are aware of the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of users who have a growing hatred of this update, why do you continue to die on the hill of “suck it up, this is the new us!”. Your userbase, on every platform available to them, is begging you to change this “”"up"""date.
It is clunky, buggy, and incredibly hostile towards your disabled/impaired users. You have gotten rid of the familiarity; something you claim to have been an “issue” when in reality that is the thing we enjoyed. The app being a “tiny version of the PC app” was what made Discord easy to use. You have needlessly complicated what was perfect. No one asked you for this; in fact, your beta testers advised you against it. Many users have already canceled their nitro, uninstalled the mobile app, and are using the web version on mobile, or not using it at all. You are actively hurting the use of Discord with the update.
If you truly care about our “voices” (which, lets be honest; we BOTH know we do not have one to you. Our money does the talking) then listen to your community. Roll back the update or give us the option to toggle the new UI off. You can be smart when you want to be, so rub your last two remaining brain-cells together and listen to your userbase for once.
