    There is no black and white divide- this is entirely to do with shades of grey.

    There are no black people either, that's entirely to do with shades of brown.

    Switch to dark theme
    download "stylish" for chrome or firefox
    download this http://userstyles.org/styles/77518/gbatemp-v4-dark

    problem solved. and it makes the banner dark as well. I hate how the blue banner stays and clashes with the dark theme without stylish.

    Here's what it looks like. The text in the first post is visible using this stylish theme. (I think Arras made it, but I can't remember)
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I mean, of course people should stop using black text because it's inconvenient to those that don't feel like doing this or just don't know about it. So do that too. This is just an option in case people still do it (which they will)

    Also use the "REMOVE FORMATTING" eraser icon when pasting text from other websites.

    That's generally a must - people gotta be blind not to notice that whenever they copy-paste, the font is not the default one.

    Haha, glad to see I'm not the only one still using that (and yes, I'm the one who made a large part of it. I'm also using it myself so if any incompatibilites/ugly things with the site arise, I'll fix them). It does not really fix people using black color fonts though as that is done in HTML and overrides any CSS. Then again, because it's grey and not black you should be able to tell when this is the case and select the text to read it.

    THANK YOU. I gotta tell you man, I'm sick of the hate Dark Theme gets. Besides, don't we have rules for posting news in USN that flat-out say don't just quote the article?

    A lot of the time including a line verbatim from the source is needed, this issue cropping up with any sort of copy-paste apparently.

    If you really want to, you can make your own theme using a browser plugin like Stylish. Requires some knowledge of HTML and CSS though.

    Sometimes, when people copy stuff and paste it into the tinymce editor, they paste font-type, size and colour along but didn't realize that.

    HTML or HTML 5?
    It shouldn't be so hard to make one I guess.

    I didn't even know GBAtemp had a dark theme before I saw this thread. I think it needs some adjustment though, the blue doesn't really go well with the gray.
    Now that I switched to it though, I have noticed a couple threads using black text for no apparent reason. It's readable, but it's annoying to read.

    I installed the user script version, but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. It's enabled but the blue parts are still blue.
