    Idk if they hired some new people or something but man, they're really causing an uproar with these updates. How did they declutter something that didn't need it but cluttered everything where it counted?

    YES! A million times yes, thank you for saying this! Discord, like every other company, needs to be more aware of their neurodivergent/disabled users. Updates like these just go to show how little thought is being put toward their userbase. Hopefully, with all the backlash its received, they'll roll back this update.

    It's not necessarily only a problem for users with accessibility limitations, removing that little separator between different users' messages just makes the whole interface look garbled even for regular users, and makes it especially hard to tell whose message is whose at a glance when people have the same or similar role colours.  It's less of a problem in standard mode but compact mode just looks like a massive wall of text now, it's abysmal.  I'm glad the team is trying new things but with the new tiny reaction menu being so easily misclickable and the arbitrary removal / rescaling of UI elements, this update just seems like a step backwards.

    Absolutely this is my main concern also, yes it is annoying (and poorly thought out) the changes are for quite a lot of us but the accessibility concerns for those who don't fit that mold is really very poor (whether it be epilepsy, some kind of motor functionality or even just each humans observing and processing visual stimuli and information differently, this current UI is far more straining and just makes the experience more anxiety inducing and tiring which is amplified if you have disabilities of any kind)

    Discord developers, give us more options instead of just forcing us to live with your "improvements".

    Dear Discord developers. We are your community and we are asking you to give us an ability to bring back an old chat version or just to switch back to it. The new version is not satisfying and makes Discord less enjoying to use. 
    With best regards, DEDNET community!

    The new chat is difficult to read and makes everything jumbled.
