Do you prefer to browser the forum in a dark background theme?

Yes I would like to browse the forum in a dark background theme. Please install one so I can set it as my theme in my User Control Panel.

No I don't need one. However, you should install a dark background theme anyway in case someone else wants it, or in case I change my mind later, or I may want to try it out just for fun some time. So please provide it as an option.

Poll: Do any of you want a dark or black forum theme?

Post by Winston » October 29th, 2014, 6:28 am

Poll question:

Do any of you prefer to browse the forum with one of those dark background themes with light colored text? If so, I can upload a dark background theme and activate it, so that you can set it as your theme preference in your User Control Panel. The dark background theme would look something like this:

https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... l/demo/3.0

You could set it as your theme preference, and then you would see that as the forum theme, while the rest are viewing the default theme.

Let's take a poll. If enough people want to use a dark background theme, I can install and activate one like the above.

Cast your vote. You may change your vote at a later time by resubmitting it above.

No, it looks too video game-ish. I'd keep it as is.

Ok we've switched back from the Halloween theme to the regular theme now.

Since the Halloween theme is a dark background one, I've decided to keep it active as an alternate theme that one can select if they prefer it.

To select it as your theme, go to your User Control Panel linked above. Under Board Preferences, you will see an option for My Board Style. There you can select the Halloween theme. Then click submit and you will be viewing that theme again. So if any of you prefer it, you can always switch to it.

Here is the link for your User Control Panel.

Just to let you guys know, if any of you prefer a dark or black forum theme, I've installed two of them. You can choose them from your UCP panel. Here is what they look like:

Yes, I usually darken all screens if I can. I don't want to stare into a light bulb. Early web pages had gray backgrounds. I really could not understand why Windows chose themes nearly as bright as light bulbs when Windows 95 came out or why they got rid of the ability to control background colors for the most part after XP.

I agree MrMan. Dark backgrounds are easier on the eyes. Remember back in the early 80's when the Apple II computer came out? It had a green text with black background. Very easy on the eyes. Even today, if you work in a medical office in America, the computer they use usually has light text on a dark background. They know it's much better for the office workers.

Doesn't Windows offer different color themes under the display options? Have you checked? They may have a dark background theme.

Have you also tried using a blue filter screen on your laptop? That should help too.

Anyway, I'll probably put a link to the dark background theme here at the top of the forum, so users can access it easier.

Ok done. I put a link to the dark theme of the forum at the top, under the big banner next to the Mobile theme link. So if you guys want to use it, just click on it. Also, if you want to switch back to the light theme, there is a link at the top of the dark theme back to the light theme to. So it's easy to switch between the two.

I'm using the dark theme now. It's really nice. Feels like staring at the stars in the night sky. Much easier on the eyes, and feels soothing and relaxing too. You guys should give it a try and see if you feel the same way.

Shout box text is too dark in dark theme. Otherwise, everything looks good, and of course it is much better than the light bulb theme.

I noticed that. The shout box text is too dark, but no biggie. It hardly gets used anyway. lol

I am still using the dark theme and it is far easier on the eyes for sure. And it feels relaxed too, like looking at the night sky. lol
