Hello,

This is something that's been on my mind for a # of years but I bring up now. I have sensitive eyes and bright things give me eyestrain and headache. I was wondering if it would be possible to implement a dark(er) theme option for the forum? This would be on a per-user basis and users could select which style they want from the user control panel. I'm not talking about making the forum black or anything. Just a tad easier on the 'ol eyeballs would be nice.

Something akin to this should work nicely I think.

Thanks for looking at this and considering it.

Just looking at the options, and your interest in a darker environment, Black or proFormell might be closest.
Whether this is going to happen is a different story, it has been discussed before...

Thanks. I am aware it's been discussed before and the answer came back as a nope. That being said, I'm hoping with more users asking from time to time that more weight will be given to the request when you all meet at the secret pub to discuss such ponderings. :)

Well, then, add my name to the list. I use the dark theme on Tapatalk, and it's one of the reasons I use that app so often to check out this forum.

I am usually a dark theme user on many forums that I visit (as well as software programs that have a "darker theme" (Mac OSX and Visual Studio 2017), however I greatly enjoy the current theme on this forum. I feel it is very easy on the eyes and it gets the job done nicely in my opinion. Nothing wrong with suggesting though so users have the preference. :thumbs-UP:

As a workaround, you can install a "night mode" type of addon in chrome or firefox to automatically invert or change the color/contrast of pages. BYM is super lightweight and good for firefox, although it disables multi process. Deluminate for chrome is the BEST extension/addon regarding night mode, but its computations to know what to invert can be fairly cpu heavy on more complex pages.

Forgot about that option, I will have to test out those addons on a myriad of sites I visit.
