This entire UI update is terrible
Firstly stop changing things that don't need to be. The UI was fine as it was and I think that has made clear by many others of this forum posting about it.
The UI - It looks bad, it is incredibly cluttered and makes the "Welcome" channel on my server looks like I'm running the Command Prompt.
Highlight thing - The way messages are highlighted when they are moused over is distracting and unnecessary
Quick reactions- I get what you were trying to do with this one but for people who aren't using mobile it is extremely unnecessary, and it makes the app look cluttered
I haven't seen anyone else talking about this so it may just be a problem on my end but I can't copy video links anymore. Previously when someone would send a video that they had on their phone/pc I would be able to just right click it and copy the link to the video and post it elsewhere, now I'm only able to copy the message ID & the message link. I'm basically forced to download the video and post it from my computer instead of just copying the link. This makes it literally impossible for me to send any videos over 8MB (which I could do previously by copying the video link).
Overall bad update, please revert the changes, this update is a massive pain and is more stressful than trying to teach a blind & deaf 90 year old how to make a phone call.
Seconded, it would be great to have option to disable the message highlight and quick reactions, whenever I move the cursor from the message input to another channel or server I highlight at least half of the page messages which looks super distracting and when the cursor moves from channel/server back to message bar it does it again. Absolutely useless feature that only distracts a ton.6
I would love Discord even more if they made sure to add a toggle-able setting for ever huge UI change giving users customization. People love customization.1
100% this. Maybe some people 'don't mind', but I've seen nobody across all my servers say, 'hurrah! Thank Christ they changed it!' It's like being married for years, coming home and your partner has had a bunch of unnecessary plastic surgery. Why, Discord, why? It's driving me nuts. At least let us revert back to the previous UI as an option.0
I only realized how good the previous UI was when the new one was introduced.
Please roll back the design or add a toggle to switch to the old one.1
