    Over the past year or so I've been glued to the "Tempstyle DARK" theme.
    So yesterday I was wondering how many people actually are aware of or use the theme.
    I had forgotten the default theme was white.
    If you're lost, goto Account Prefences to try out the theme.

    So, which theme do you like best?

    I use the white theme. The Dark Theme seems to bother my eyes for some reason, so, I avoid it (not that it looks bad, I just cant' seem to focus at all while I use it).

    You can use it with Chrome as well.
    IMO, it makes the theme look worse, though.

    I dunno, I like it. The regular black theme isn't bad either and I still much prefer that above the white theme, but I probably just grew used/attached to this one :P

    I think dark is much easier on the eyes , white makes it hard to read or should I say follow some of the writing on the screen.
    I wish I could make all web pages look like this.

    I use the light theme. Light text on a dark background sends my eyes crazy.

    I don't think the Stylish script is bad per say, but it just seems to break as much as it's trying to fix :lol:

    I have the same on many sites with dark themes I visit.
    But on this site it's a "slightly dark" background with "slightly light" text, so it's a lot more doable.
    Could be different for you though, I guess.

    I just switched to the dark side ...let's see how long I can stand it..
    (some icons looks worst on the dark theme ...they show some white borders, since they seems to be designed to lighter themes.. ...red text pops out more on the dark theme too ..what I don't like much..) See? -> :( he is sad cause there's some white stuff around his face

    I'm a fan of Arra's dark theme. Nice, easy on the eyes, and the top logo bar on the website matches the rest of the site. :lol:

    Yup ..I know
    but based on the amount of people using this darker theme, I think those problematic icons should be fixed (not only the smiles ..if you go to the home page, you can see this white borders on other kind of icons..)

    Tempstyle 3 is missing in the poll. You know, the old IPB skin.
