    Hi there! This suggestion is the same as https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360050328491 so in an effort to keep duplicates out and keep everything neat and tidy, we're going to merge this ticket into that suggestion. This ticket will be deleted automatically after a week.

    Agreed - the lack of contrast makes the whole thing so much more overwhelming to look at.

    I felt so annoyed but it that I went out of my way to find feedback.  It looks terrible.  All they did was remove all of the color from it.

    It's so visually unclear now? Trying to find active channels on servers is much harder now. I liked having a clear distinction between channel and sideboard, but now it's a visual mess. "Light theme" doesn't have to mean "everything is blindingly white now".

    And please dial the font contrast back to what it was. I use the light theme because high contrast/dark themes give me eyestrain and migraines. This is not accessible!

    change back light mode because it's gotten to the point where dark mode feels really damn weird and now light mode is garbage leaving discord almost unusable.

    Some people naturally prefer the light theme, simple as that - I always had light themes everywhere, but they at the very least had some contrast to make up for it and thus you aren't flashed by a blinding light burning away your eyesight.

    Whoever designed that one clearly went overboard. This new look is absolutely horrendous, strains my eyes badly and since I can't stand the dark theme either I'm now basically forced to avoid discord entirely till this reverts. This mentality of "change for the sake of change" when the old "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." is honestly starting to annoy me.

    For people like myself, the old light theme was the only usable theme. Beyond just preference, the old light theme offered a color contrast that worked for my eyes. It is hard to explain but it is something that the dark theme and the new light theme does not offer. It would be very kind of them to offer the old theme as a third option because as of now I cannot easily use Discord in either theme.

    100% agreed Sixth. The dark sidebar, and light background with dark text was very clear and easy to read. The combination of splashing everything with the white paint tool and changing the font at the same time has left most of Discord unreadable for me.

    I won't say revert, because I'm sure there's 1 person out there that likes this, maybe, but how about just an option for the old style + old font?

    I'm honestly unable to use Discord right now because I literally can't look at it.  The light theme is blinding and is giving me eye strain and the dark theme does not work with my dyslexia.  The light letters just blend together no matter what I do to the font.  Please fix this it's excessively awful.

    Give us the old light theme back, or maybe add the old one as a third option. How hard would that be?

    This new theme is absolute shit to say the least, there have probably been some bad updates in the time I've been on here but none that forced me to go out of my way to comment on the feedback page. Please revert this change as it is painful using discord now. Kinda wanna just go back to team speak after this disaster of an update
