    I was just thinking the same thing. My eyesight loves the lower output of white. @Wavelength: I would also like a bit less contrast, but a darker tone overall seems more pleasing to my eyes. If it's one or the other though, I'd prefer this contrast to help me read.

    Edit: I'm not sure if I like my avatar better on a darker screen though. :kaodes: Kaomoji doesn't like it much.

    Had to disable it to read some forum posts. Apparently they set the text to black. Got tired of highlighting it to read :)

    I gotta say, this is WAY easier on the eyes.
    There's a reason that early computers used black screens and white text and they did not use white screens with black text..
    It would have been a pain on the eyes!

    I want to try it out of curiosity but... can I revert this back to default? (I dunno if it set to Default or Web Forum. Sorry.)

    @Marquise* Just go to the bottom of any page after switching themes, click on the theme that is current, and you'll get the option to switch back. It's super easy.

    Also, I haven't really run across anything that looks like a real bug. Though for the darker theme the blue text "Users Who Are Viewing This Thread" line at the bottom should probably be brightened up a little bit.

    Wow, I can't believe I'm just only discovering this now! I'm definitely a night owl when I'm working on stuff, and this night mode is perfect, thank you!

    Will try. Thanks @Mrs_Allykat

    Did it... Will optionally use it after heavy photoshoping or if someone sleeps in the same room. Nice to be able to get back. Very useful. (I prefer the lighter default one. But I can appreciate the black one for convenience.)
