I haven't posted on here in 2 years, but this new update is so unfathomably bad I had to make a post about it. Just looking at the first page of posts in here tells me I'm not alone, which makes me happy, but the more fuel to the fire to get this awful update out of discord, the better.
The new image clustering/collage thing is a bad idea, plain and simple. Not only does it look nasty, it crops off all images to be a perfect square, thus rendering screenshots useless, and forcing me to click on each one individually, wasting more of my time as I click on each one to view and then exiting. This is even worse on mobile, especially if I'm on the move, and its getting to the point where I don't even bother and I just ask the individual to resend the images but separately.
This is also terrible for videos, not only for all the reasons I stated above, but you also decided to remove filenames for some reason? I don't know about anybody else, but I actually liked being able to see the filename and extension, if it was a .webm I could be forewarned if it would crash my discord, and if it was a .mov I'd know I had to waste time converting it to an .mp4 later. Also, sometimes for memes, the filename was part of the joke.
Additionally, the rounded corners and everything just looks goofy, especially for videos/screenshots. I think this was added because some goobers don't know what scrolling was or they would rather there be more space, but I'm not seeing anything good about this and its becoming painful to individually send several images/videos. If you feel so inclined to keep this horrific feature, please make it a toggleable option in the settings. Oh and please don't just somehow change it up so it doesn't crop, idk if I or the many others in here have made it clear, but we do NOT like this mosaic layout. I want it gone, so please make it toggleable to be back to normal, one file at a time.
