So like many people on the feedback forums today, I'm not a fan of the reaction bar being intrusively shoved into every message I hover over. I knew the reaction emoji's existed, I knew where they were, but I don't use them. Especially since they're easily accessible through typed commands still.
But I run Discord on dark mode for a reason, bright tabs/windows and colours are very hard for me to look at (I'm sensitive to lights, flashing or otherwise) and the reaction bar suddenly shoving itself into an otherwise clean interface is very distracting and it's making concentrating on an actual conversation difficult any time I accidentally leave my mouse hovering near the window.
For visual, this is the server I spend most of my time in (content and names blurred for privacy reasons obviously). But you'll note that there aren't any emoji's used because it's not that kind of space. It's meant to be more professional, with long walls of detailed text. Hopefully it's easier to understand just why this reaction bar is such an unpleasant oversight from a planning perspective and many of us are hoping it's reverted, or at least removed out of the messages themselves since "ease of access" should not mean "in the way".
