Custom Themes

    I just want to say no one here should be open to the idea of paying for client side theming because unlike other nitro features which are server-side CSS theming is completely client-side and whether the discord developers like it or not client side theming is already possible the whole point is that we want them to make official theme in like what is already in BetterDiscord but let me remind you that better discord already exists and is already free

    I think it should be a clientside feature with an upload button in the appearance section of the settings or something so we could create our own themes to use or download ones online that were designed by others.

    Although, like ~エリアス・ロッシン~  said above, if the feature is actually implemented any time soon, it'll probably just be locked behind a paywall sadly, knowing our luck. (Nitro exclusive, maybe a premade theme store, idk.)

    If Discord does decide to take the paywall route, I think they should have it be so non-nitro users can freely upload static themes and have animated ones be a nitro feature like animated emotes are.

    I also agree with MaHI111's "strapped CSS" idea, full customizability of the layout would be a nice thing to have, but it is probably unlikely to be implemented. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Also please add so that you can have a main theme on like every server by default! :)

    a nice fully transparent theme would be nice for all platforms so you can see your lovely homescreen on discord :)

    or give people a css code editor and let us make our own css theme thats custom to use so its not all the same like one would have a fully red discord theme and the other would have a fully yellow one etc

    I found this because somebody in our group just asked how can you change it from black on black because that makes scrolling very hard.  Frankly, I don't know why that was made a default. Heralds have known for hundreds of years at least the principle of what tincture to put on what tincture.  White and yellow work on dark or medium dark purple, green, red, black, blue, brown (if you must), or you can do it visa versa. There's a reason text is usually black on white, because it stands out.  Look at the logo for virtually any major company, and you'll see this rule of tincture used (although some do it with a contrasting outline).

    If there's going to be a default, I think it should at least be changed to one that's easy to distinguish.

    This from Wikipedia on Rule of tincture:

    "Modern design principle

    "The rule of tincture has had an influence reaching far beyond heraldry. It has been applied to the design of flags, so that the flag of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach was modified to conform to the rule. Pragmatically, it is a useful rule of thumb for the design of logos, icons and other symbols."

    would also be nice to have server specific themes (that could be disabled if someone doesn't like seeing the theme)

    who uses discord light theme amirite?

    Maybe it sends a request to the client saying "Hey this has a custom theme, would you like to download it?" and you'd have the choice.

    Cross-site scripting through CSS is available though http://www.tralfamadore.com/2008/08/xsstc-cross-site-scripting-through-css.html, so the Discord team would either just make it customisable from the app without CSS or they would have to attempt to block all known cross-site scripting.

    Would love any customization that allows us to hide/remove/not automatically open to the toxic activity tab!

    All you have to say Alden Loveshade is that You and your friend have trouble seeing the dark tones of discord. Not an entire lecture to people who probably already obtained their degrees... Also what is the brightness/ contrast on the monitor itself btw? Changing that may help you see darker tones.

    don't you ever think there could possibly be a reason it's banned by tos?

    I know exactly why it's against TOS that's why I'm asking for Discord to add this feature

    You can already do that. Your discord server must be a partner or this... read links below.

    https://discordapp.com/partners or https://discordapp.com/verification 

    I think, discord made it that they only get these for safety reasons or something.

    I think this would be a cool idea, although if that actually was an option I think they should add more things it affects.

    Everybody's so hyped about server themes, but I've never considered applying that to things like pings and the New Message line, but it's a fantastic idea!

    IMO, it should be CSS based just like what BetterDiscord and other plugins already does, cause if that it'll be easy for the themers out there to implement it and we basically have a lot of themes on those market already, since BD was marked as a ToS violation, I had to stare this boring screen for like the past 8 months now.
