Add an option to revert the Discord Icons before they got the redesign



  • Jess Rogue

    Not really sure why others are downvoting. The new Canary build made some of Discord an eyesore. I guess I could get used to it, but man it's kind of annoying.

  • Motionq

    I have to agree, they at least should've taken opinions before changing up the style. Maybe it's just me adjusting to the change, but IMO there were no issues with the old style.

  • Loukes

    Honestly I like it. But I agree we should have an option to change between the old one and the new one. I can see how people don't like it.

  • /moss>

    personally i don't like the new icons either. they are bad (my opinion)

  • Harold

    Same. I really hate it. I miss the old design, this redesign is horrible.

  • Prince Altoid

    Redesign honestly makes me wanna stop using Discord on my computer. Please go back to the old one, or give us the option to.

  • Hudbus

    The redesign is too rounded out.

    It was far easier to tell what was what with the clear-cut edges of the previous design, now things feel like a blur.

    Everything is floating around, it feels like I'm looking at a bunch of items floating in some internet soup. 


    Please enable an option to swap between designs like with the message display system.


    Also it appears I can no longer re-size things within Discord? 

  • Guaporacer

    The new style is good but the old wasnt bad tho, I agree about the option to change between styles, that could be nice

  • Trap2.0

    I personally just don't like the look of this new style, of course there will be the people like me that don't it and the people that do like it, but as others before me have said it would be nice to have the option to switch between the styles, more control over the platform that we use and love.

  • Lunar

    I hate it because when a friend DMs me, I don't actually get pinged. I just get a sound notif. This makes it VERY difficult to know unless I'm staring at Discord constantly whether I've been DM'd (I keep the site muted while I do other things)

    Edit: Discord just had some weird shenanigans happening until I reloaded. My apologies.

  • Loukes


    Hasn't that been an issue before the update? I never get pinged anymore, no pop ups displaying the messages.

  • WinNT5_0

    I completely agree. also these green buttons in the server list

  • firon

    yeah, don`t like new design.

    especially the count of people in the voice channel

  • Annie

    I think it's rather cute. maybe the green buttons are a bit off, because I still like the idea of the cute colours discord created (greyple, blurple, etc). They're still iconic. as for the dots in the profilepicture circles are a shock change too, but they're more eye catching, so I guess that's a plus. The only problem I have aside this is that now I can't just scroll/ stay on the same chat and have the messages been autoread for some reason, or when I go to the end of them.
    As for the additions, the log is very helpful and well-structured as for the widget just as much.

  • Toxikz

    I agree, there should be an option to revert back to the old look.

  • High Priest Luk'az

    My eyes bleed when I'm looking at these new icons, Discord plz.


  • Gwynevere

    Parts of it feel really blurry.

  • ᵧᵤₕ

    it's alright, but i feel like it'll take time to get used to if this is going to be official.

  • Bailey

    I agree, I don't like it. It's cartoony and icons are far larger than they need to be. 

  • Ukraine


  • Gronmin

    I think the worst part is the text and symbol in the channel listings. It looks bloated and doesn't fit with the rest of discords text. It reminds me of a mobile design which makes things needlessly large so that people are able to select them with touch controls. However, on PC this has also resulted in me being able to fit fewer channels on the screen at once without me zooming out or something.

  • DickHardly | Gen1

    Everything looks like its in bold. The words, text and voice call symbols, everything. I'm really not a fan of this update at all. I would really like a way to revert this change on my end, like a way to toggle between new and old.

  • swagmama

    This update is so bad and unnecessary, especially when nobody had any problems with the old design. Should definitely give users the option to switch back.

  • pol

    please for the love of all that is holy let us revert, if i wanted this crap design i'd of asked for it.

    nobody asked for gui change.



    don't be like google, facebook, and other low-quality companies changing things just because they can and telling people to "suck-it-up"


    reddit implemented the option to revert back because they realized how crap their theme change was, let's do that here so we can go back to discord and not discord chrome.

  • PrincessLapis

    I don't mind the server icons being smaller, but the other new UI changes are bad. The icons in the top right look bad and I feel like they stand out too much now. The search bar has become unpleasantly dark, and I really don't appreciate the channel names in servers being so much larger. (And 

    But probably my least favorite change of all is the mention notifications. I don't like the red mention circles, and I hate how they take a bite out of the icon, and have a huge border around them.

    I'm clearly not the only one that at least dislikes the changes. Many people in the servers I'm in do, too. And please, in the future, don't make unannounced UI changes. At the very least, you should be fully open with your users about what you've done.

  • theNoah

    Personally, I dislike how the look of the channels have been changed, and I also prefer the larger server icons; it was much easier on the eyes prior to this change.
    edit: Remember to share the original post so that it gains more traction!

  • yuiop

    Better idea, make the UI something that you have to turn on from the options menu and keep the old UI. (Or the other way round if they really want to keep this mistake of a UI as the default)

  • Isthariel

    That's what I'm saying. Give us the old one back, and preferably burn the new one in a trash pile out back.

  • etek

    Found this after getting the update just now. It looks ridiculous. All the colors and buttons are odd and bold, the channel hash icon at the top is WAY too big.

    But worst of all, I can't even see how many friends are online anymore at the top-left! Defeats the purpose of the whole friend system. 

    This update is just awful and should be swiftly reverted. Or at the very least, I should have a way to revert.

  • PatPeter

    Completely agree! If I knew my Discord was going to do this when I restarted it, I would have never restarted it!!! The circular pings are ugly. The mentions and unread indicators are ugly.

    But the maximum user limit on channels is the WORST! It sticks out like a sore thumb.

    I STILL can't move channels when I have unread messages above that channel. You didn't even fix anything functional in this update, you just made Discord look worse.
