While this may look like yet another thread on the new light theme, I want to give some more general feedback on the way that Discord treat their accessibility features and their users who require them.
Don't forget that back in April when they just outright removed the light theme as a "joke". In this current situation and that one, the thread on Discord's official Twitter is filled with legitimate complaints and feedback and they do sometimes reply, which is appreciated. However, at the exact same time, they post the exact same "light theme bright!!!" joke repeatedly, showing what is clearly a two-faced attitude as they openly mock their affected user base. While I would like this to not be true, it makes you look like nothing more than a group of ableist tech bros who care nothing about the experience of those with various difficulties or simple personal preferences.
It is disheartening and frankly disgusting to see this behaviour happen constantly. Discord seriously has to work on their accessibility both on the platform itself and how they represent this in their public image. I cannot give any support to the development team while they so blatantly laugh in the face of many of their users. This situation is not as terrible as the last one regarding the light theme, but it is very tiring to be at the butt of yet another one of their discriminatory jokes because I have a visual impairment.
Please sort this out. Hire some people who are experts in accessibility and ask for their input on every user-facing decision, because your current team is evidently unable to make accessibility-related choices on their own.
