Dark Theme for forums please. :)

Recommended Posts

The 'Invision Community' should allow multiple themes if I remember correctly, can we please have a dark theme too?  The white is blinding and painful sometimes lol like acid on my eyes, I found an app for Firefox to force an inversion and make the forums dark with light text, but it'd be nice I think to just offer the toggle in our profiles, if we want the light or dark theme, than everyone can benefit.

Just a suggestion, not a demand, but it would be quite nice. ?

It could be so nice, it has biological as well as energy use implications.  ?

Heres a five min mockup with Firefox source inspector and some css tweaks lol..

Actually that's a good idea, I do have an extension that allow me to save my personal CSS changes and load them whenever I visit a website, I might use that.

My books on cats were on domestic cats and the different breeds; was so many I wanted and proved to teacher when I was 8 I was right to colour a cat in blue and showed her pages of Russian Blues and British Blues :P However dark themes would be nice for when I reply via the phone as when at laptop I wear my glasses so white glare don't hurt my eyes or give me nasty headache as much!

Totally agree, same experience!

I'll add my vote to the request.

Until they get around to giving us that, there is a browser add-on called Dark Reader that you can install.

Dark reader can have some pretty harsh performance issues depending on site.

Not a vote for a dark theme, but not against it either, as long as it's one one of a choice of themes - dark and light. I like this one the way it is now, and I wouldn't want to be forced into a dark theme only, take it or leave it.

So, you vote against the union getting a raise!

I am in agreement with Phil. So long as there is a choice, add what you want. I have always found it interesting that people say a dark theme is more natural. Every book i have ever read has white pages when its new. They fade to a cream color after time, but they never invert colors. Reading a black screen with white text leave me with after images burned into my retinas. On of the main reasons i dont type much in SL.

Another vote for a darker theme and I agree with Phil, a choice would be nice. Maybe be able to switch back and forth depending on your time of day or night.

Totally true.  There are some sites that I found out real quick not to use it on, but it doesn't seem to cause any issues here on forums.

Yes, preferably there would be a toggle between dark/light, if your outside during the sunny hours or an extremely bright room a white theme might be more legible, whereas being inside at a computer in a normal or darker environment a dark theme is far better, especially if you're the type to spend good lengths of time at it.

There's not much of an argument for either/or since its situational really.  Screens are not nice light reflective surfaces like paper though, they're still totally emissive unfortunately with our current stone-age technology ? eventually we will have reflective pixels.  Many studies show that too much blue led light is bad, after a long time it can damage eyesight, even causing circadian and mitochondrial disorders that lead to all sorts of problems.
