Any Chances of getting a dark mode?

As the title suggests, Is there any chances of there being a dark mode for this website? Sometimes a lot of us lurk and post at the later times in the day/night and the bright white background really can hurt my eyes.
I Would love it (and I bet a few others would too) if we got the option of having a dark mode for this site. Just a suggestion. :D

Good suggestion.

Personally I am partial to the nostalgia I feel with the tan and green colors LOL. But, if it was a feature we could turn on and off, that would be great!

FWIW, I use the blue filter setting on my phone. After sunset it dims all blue light which makes everything a lot easier on the eyes. I have an android but I know the iphones also have a feature like that called night mode or something.

Hello,

That is a great idea, LOL, for us night people.
I too, have an app that decreases the screen brightness, according to the day/night cycle,
but it's on my computer. It helps a lot to filter out the brightness.

Oh indeed I love the tan and green colors, But only in the daytime. Lol. The ability to turn it on and off would be great.

I Wish I had the blue filter on my IPhone but unfortunately it's an old potato and doesn't have that option, or a night mode.

We'll see what the options are when I eventually get to upgrading the forum software. When I do that, I'll use their newer templates, and we'll see if it's possible to do within reason. No promises on that though. :) But it would be cool.

Hey Thanks for replying! But cool that there might be some new stuff eventually. Either way it's cool.

The way this theme currently is isn't as eye killing as regular light themes for sites, it's more bearable. But thanks for considering it maybe. :)
