I strongly dislike the new reaction bar
I thought I'd write a post of my own since many other commenters are complaining about things I'm not bothered by.
At any rate, the new reaction bar is obnoxiously obtrusive, both visually and as a click target. I would very much like to see reaction picking and other similar tasks (quoting, pinning, deleting, etc.) available the way it was before this update.
(Incidentally, the "disable reactions entirely" setting is one I *don't* want to turn on. I *like* reactions; I just don't want to be pestered to react to every. single. message. I let my mouse pointer hover over.)
I just hate it that every sentence you hover over lights up and the entire mini pop menu on the right.
It's all an eyesore to a once clean overal image.12
it is annoying and obtrusive, I like reactions but let me click the little emote button to choose, I don't need to see the 'top 3' highlight on every single line when just trying to read11
it hurt my eyes so bad i searched out a feedback url. this is actually more bothersome than the steam library update7
The rest I can deal with, but the reaction bar is just so glaringly intrusive. I run dark mode on Discord for a reason, and the bright ass colours of the reaction emoji's is an eyesore. I barely use reactions in the first place, but I'm not bothered with their existence. What I'm bothered by is the fact that they're distracting and make reading messages uncomfortable.4
I'm in the unfortunate spot where I actually do like using reactions sometimes. But since there's no other way to get rid of the quick reaction bar, and it's genuinely distracting/getting in the way of viewing previous messages, I guess I'll have to disable reactions entirely, and do without.0
It covers up the text I'm trying to read.
It's positioned so that I'm not sure which post I'm responding to.
It at least needs to be smaller; ideally it should only appear when I put the cursor at the end of the first line of a post.0
