Slack theme import different format


Original report:

It seems that slack has changed their format of exporting colour schemes.
I was able to reproduce on as well as community servers.

Steps to reproduce
Try to paste this Slack colour scheme: #1A1D21,#121016,#3A2D3B,#FBFAF7,#27242C,#FBFAF7,#2EB67D,#BD3855,#4A154B,#FBFAF7

Receive an error "Invalid format, please try copying and pasting in again"

QA Test Steps

If possible, we should ensure the theme still looks good if we need to infer other theme colours from the ones given, but we can further discuss that if it's not obvious.

The corresponding theme is

Note UX will need to determine the key value pair mapping. Perhaps this should be considered after we figure out what our approach to the new theming should be (if we expect major changes)
