Revert UI Change or Add Legacy Option

    I need this so badly. Though, perhaps a toggle for each individual feature would be a bit better.

    Additionally:
    -The separator between lines in both compact and regular mode was an accessibility feature (specifically for people with dyslexia + similar problems), and now that's gone
    -The new emoji bar and text highlighting are extremely distracting for people with ADHD, and can't be turned off
    -The new text highlighting is also so rapid that it could potentially be an epileptic trigger, plus people with motor functions will have the highlight constantly flashing, because it's only on mouse-overs

    I think maybe Discord should ask and engage with the community more, and especially disabled and neurodivergent folks, because these features really do make quality of chat so much worse for some.

    Ah you see, this would be great except for one issue people generally dont take into account.

    Adding a legacy option that allows things to be toggled back to the previous would double the work than discord would need to do to apply any future updates (say bugfixes and the like as i pray theyll stop tampering with the UI eventually). Once you have two states for the UI every update they ever make has to be tested not once, but twice, and they also need to code things not once but twice. Theyd effectivly be doubling their workload for no reason.

    Discord honestly should just revert the UI. I dont think anyone asked for this absurd change. And those that did are more than likely a minority due to the massive amount of people who hate this change.
