I think the forum section headers and unread threads should be a bold white. For some reason I have trouble seeing the difference witht he dark background.

Please no, the contrast between background and text is high enough to cause nystagmus already. More white would make it absolutely unreadable.

Thumbs up

Thanks for implementing this tlr, this is my new standard theme. I always prefer dark mode on my apps, sites and devices when available.

I've mentioned this earlier - so now I at least know I'm not the only one having troubles with the current version

I guess it depends on user-preference and / or device/display type. Maybe a middle ground can be found that makes the unread threads stand out without straining the eyes too much.

White text would not strain the eyes. It's impossible given how little of the display area is being lit up. Google play store uses white text with their dark background and it's fine.



They use white for important stuff and light grey text for everything else.

I'm not saying it would - but obviously people have concerns.

Personally, I'd like the unread threads to be in the theme's highlight color - but I guess people would find this to be too colorful.

vs

-- EDIT --

Any update on the spoiler tags maybe? Using Night Mode and browsing the forum is very much like treading on egg-shells currently. Especially, because - as established above - white on black immediately draws the reader's attention TOWARDS the spoilers on a page, instead of away from it

It's not perfect but it gets the job done. And of course I can't use this colour scheme on my laptop, so it's great that an official one is being worked on.

I really like that version ^^^ the colors seem to blend so well with each other but it s colorful enough to distinguish the parts of the forum too.
And also it is in tone with the current blue theme of the forums.

Let s have a Dark theme and also a Dark blue theme maybe another time we could also try some pastels : )))

Oh I thought Lyle Croft meant header background, not text. Either way personally I'd just make the category headers just a tad, very little bit brighter grey just to make them stand out more. Nothing more than that.

That looks too white! Maybe a slightly brighter tone then.
