Dark theme, opposed to White and Green themes

«1
Especially during nighttime, using either of the two main themes can be pretty disturbing and painful for your eyes. We already have a theme that changes the color theme, so why shouldn't we have another one that is mainly gray and black?

    I would love this! Especially since many apps are now offering a dark theme.

    Thank you very much for the feedback on this!

    This is a suggestion I have seen a few times now and it is on the list, but I can't make any promises on when or if it will happen.

    Regards,

    This needs to happen
    Sims 4 went from "You Rule" to "One of the stories we want you to tell"

    I think they're talking about adding more colors, preferable dark colors to this site so that they can change the background colors from either the green or white.

    I know. I just thought that people who have issues here might also have issues in the game.

    The white loading screen in game does bother me too, and having a darker loading screen makes all the difference for me. Unfortunately, the mod you linked to is outdated. It hasn't been updated since 2016 and no longer works, so someone else took over and created their own mod. It has been updated for the Seasons patch and can be found here:

    Thanks! I think that's actually the one I'm using - just not the one that turned up in a search :/

    I'd love this option.

  • AnthonydyerAnthonydyer Posts: 1,020 Member
    I like this idea. I would like to keep green and white as options, but I would like to see dark implemented as an option.

    I have always went with a black, grey, or blue theme on cell phones and computers, but it seems as if cell phone manufacturers now have this obsession with bright white. Started with iphone and now android picked this up. Cell phones should come with a pair of sunglasses now. Windows 10 defaults to white, but does let you switch to dark.

    Wait? That's a thing? I don't do mods, but that looks fantastic!

    I don't have problems with Windows 10 settings which you can change brightness between 25% and 100% just by clicking on the taskbar battery setting icon.

    There also is a "nightlight" facility which turns off blue light (to help you sleep later) and you can enable it to turn on at a time you choose. I turn it on at 9pm myself. (see Display settings). @EA_Mage

    A dark theme seems like a good idea, by the fact that color black is comfortable color and easy to see in a dark illuminated room, such as a bedroom with the lights off.

    Yes yes yes! A dark theme for this site would be brilliant!
  • Karababy52Karababy52 Posts: 1,920 Member
    Yes, please! I would love this as an option. I only recently discovered the dark theme for YouTube and absolutely love it! It's so much easier on these old eyes of mine at night. Especially since my 'monitor' is our 60" Vizio. :)
  • ShadyboopShadyboop Posts: 6,497 Member
    I would like to have my eyes not get too much exposure from the brightness when I wake up
    I prefer Shade than Shady
  • rabidgummibearrabidgummibear Posts: 77 Member
    well, believe it or not, i have read that lighter themes are actually preferable for the eyes in terms of ergonomics and extended exposure...

    QUOTE: However, most studies have shown that dark characters on a light background are superior to light characters on a dark background (when the refresh rate is fairly high). For example, Bauer and Cavonius (1980) found that participants were 26% more accurate in reading text when they read it with dark characters on a light background.

    Reference: Bauer, D., & Cavonius, C., R. (1980). Improving the legibility of visual display units through contrast reversal. In E. Grandjean, E. Vigliani (Eds.), Ergonomic Aspects of Visual Display Terminals (pp. 137-142). London: Taylor & Francis

    Hope that helps!

    They do come with a bluelight filter but I'd still love a dark theme.

    Dark theme needs to happen on both PC and Mobile versions.

    I'd prefer black over gray. Most Samsung Phones are updating to Android Pie and One UI which comes with a darkmode option.

    Twitter and YouTube already have darkmode options so I'm hoping this site will very soon.

    I do use the bluelight filter on my phone at night when on this forum but darkmode would be even better. I'll soon be getting darkmode when Pie rolls out to my Note 9.
