More Themes?
« on: November 24, 2014, 07:41:26 pm »
Sorry if this has been suggested in the past or something. I wasn't sure if it has. Feel free to delete it.

It's just I was wondering if we can have more option for the website theme. The current one I have is the black one and it sometimes hurts my eyes to see it, however, I didn't like the other one because it's too plain for me and empty so I just stuck with the black one. It would be nice to have something more bright, but not too bright like lime green or yellow for example.

Hmm... personally the dark theme does help my eyes at night compared to other sites that have white backgrounds (blackout mode). But... I do get where you're coming from.

I'm personally not sure if this site supports different themes, but it's a heck of a lot of work to program them and get it right (I've done it in the past and it's not easy xD my colour coordination is all over the place at best).

Is the issue focussing on the white text within the dark backgrounds?
Or is it because it's so dark in general?
Are there any additional things within the layout that you feel are contributing to the issue?

Sorry -  I feel that the more details we have, the more we can potentially help.

It's just how dark the black is. If you go on mangago, you can see it has a dark theme as well, but it isn't dark like black. It's a dark that doesn't hurt the eye, but it's also probably because it has some light colours mix with it.

I mean everyone is different, I understand that. A lot will probably prefer the black theme, but for me, this is too black and too dark for my eyes to stay to focus for too long on.

If you guys don't want to add any more themes, I get it. You don't have too if it's too difficult too do. It's just a suggestion. I'll just try to get use to it or go to a different website to stare at then come back.

Oh its ok, I'll mention it to an admin and see what they say, I just wanted to get a couple more details before I did that's all.

After all, I'm speaking from my own experience and not theirs ^^

The main color for the theme is not black, but a soft dark gray. Could your screen's brightness possibly be set too low?

For us to create a new theme, it would require editing it all from scratch, like Mitani referred, which if possible we'd like to avoid. :/

Even if I brighten my screen, it wouldn't make a differences. Anyways. It's fine. You don't have too. Like I said, it's just a suggestion.

I find it odd that the black hurts your eyes. I like the black because bright lights trigger migraines for me, so white and bright backgrounds hurt my eyes.

Personally, though, the grey bothers me because it makes colored font hard. I've just learned to deal with it.
