    Cannot agree enough. I held off the update for as long as I could, but was forced to update recently. Time I've spent on Discord has drastically decreased now due to how hard it is to read for long periods of time. If they don't fix this, they're going to have serious issues.

    I doubt anything will be done anymore. If they intended to fix it, they would've already. They do not care about customers. Time to look for an alternative and show Discord what happens to companies that don't care.

    The update just hit me today, and the new UI was like a jarring slap in the face. It's not quite at the point where I can no longer use discord, but it's definitely gone from "enjoyable experience" to "unpleasant experience that I must tolerate if I want to talk to my friends." 

    The only reason I haven't been chased away entirely is the fact that turning off reactions removes most of the quick reaction menu's obnoxiousness. But it sucks that I have to chose between "using reactions" and "using discord at all."

    100% agreed. I want to use Discord. I spent a huge amount of time on it before, but I just can't now. My usage has plummeted on the desktop, and I don't like using it on my phone either because Discords response to this has been unbelievably disappointing. I feel scummy for supporting them now.

    The new UI is a travesty. I can't use it. I've tried to get used to it, but it just gives me a headache. It's so cluttered and unorganized, with flickering everywhere, neon red new messages line, a menu that pops up whenever you move over a message.. ugh. I just can't. It legitimately makes me anxious when I try to use it. I can't believe how many steps backwards it took in a single update. From clean and simple to an in-your-face mess.

    I don't know what to do anymore. I keep posting here in hopes that the continued feedback will hopefully spur something, but it feels completely hopeless and I hate it.
