New UI is overstimulating and unfriendly to users with disabilities

    I wholeheartedly agree with this. As someone who has Aspergers and ADHD, I already struggle enough with my energy and being overstimulated. When I want to go check Discord when I'm having a sensory meltdown, the stupid highlighting makes everything worse. Don't even get me started on the huge eyesore of a message popup. 

    Discord please, don't fix something that isn't broken.

    Yes. It's way too obtrusive and ruined something that was ideally accessible while not overstimulating.

    100%. I really struggle to use Discord as-is. It hurts. It gives me a headache if I try for too long. It's so sad. I want to use Discord, but I simply can't with the awful new UI. That's where I talk to most of my friends, and it sucks that I have trouble communicating with them as a result.
