Add Skin support/modifying the discord layout locally, and support it serverside
Doing this would allow people to customize discord the way they like it, including changing the layout. Create an Editor that will allow us to create our own layout and make things work better for the way we use discord. The lazy people who don't care about the different channels in their servers can then modify their discord with a custom skin, submit it for official use and then have it shared. I've been thinking about how nice it would be to have skins for discord and a different interface that might fit my needs easier. There are people with disabilities that could also use a skins feature. Create some defaults like "mIRC", "Forum", "RPG", RP Etc. Allow the modifications to include things like forum style or RP type functions.
Actually It would not... There's a UI/chat suggestion change in the wrong area that suggests completely altering discord and changing it to a forum style... My Idea is different than just changing the chat. The Idea here is to have skins/modifications to the discord client itself, Discord would NOT loose it's independent branding this way, it would make itself even more unique. no other chat client other than IRC clients support actual skins that alter the look. There's one multi chat client I called Trillian but that's way different it doesn't include discord. It's function is quite depreciated now too with YIM and other clients it supported being gone.1
The only problem with this is it makes Discord lose it's independent branding, which isn't good for brand identification. Other than that it would be a nice, but unlikely, feature to have.0
