As detailed in https://blog.discordapp.com/whats-coming-for-nitro-a732ddc4b5b1 , most subscribers did not use the games. With this feature being gone, the resources to refocus, and a focus on adding more features, fun, and enhancements for hanging out in Discord (per the post), this is the perfect time for Discord to take a look at some of the most up-voted requests on the forums. Previously some of these requests were a little bit out of the question, but I think it's going to take one of the bigger requests to fill the hole the games catalog is leaving. I'm going to link a few of the requests I'd be interested in for people to take a look at, and support/comment on them if they want the feature or don't. (Some of these requests aren't/don't have to be/shouldn't be for nitro users only, they can just be some things that the team adds, in a show of good faith as the games catalog fades out.)

This could also include the option for the now-desired older light theme as part of a big "Themes" overhaul; although that bit probably shouldn't be behind a paywall. Market it as the "Themes" update! This, I think in particular, would really smooth out all of the rage on the subreddit and forums I've been seeing. I've also seen this brought up many times before my post here, and no doubt after I post it. Please consider it!

If anyone else has any bright ideas, now's the time! Discord has to fill that hole with something!
