    As a night person, I have to ask...Can we PLEASE have a dark theme for the forums? [​IMG]

    Most of the forums I go to have a dark theme I can apply, but then I come here after roaming those boards...BAM! I get blinded by the blue and white awesomeness that is GBAtemp...


    I love these forums but its hell on my eyes lol

    While I do agree that it burns my eyes at night, (I too am a night person) I don't think anyone is going to take out part of their day to make a theme.

    If you can not wait for such things then may I suggest:

    Firefox:
    http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

    Extensions
    Firebug:
    http://getfirebug.com/
    Use this to fiddle with the sites code as your machine sees it and thus as it renders.

    Greasemonkey:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748
    Use this to make a script to make it permanent.

    Hint: what you want is accomplished with CSS which is detailed here: http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp and it is used by a great deal of other sites and so other scripts ( http://userscripts.org/ ) which you can pull apart.

    This along with adblock, noscript and tab kit may browsing rather nice these days.
