    Not a bug but a suggestion. I have some eye problems, and white and similarly light-colored backgrounds put a lot of strain in my eyes, causing a lot of glare. Is there a possibility to add darker themes to the forum? The four available styles in Preferences have all white or nearly white backgrounds.

    @Homo eructus I use an extension in Chrome called 'Deluminate' that darkens any site you are on (almost all sites, some will be broken a bit). This is a shot of what I see the site as.

    I did start making a dark theme based on "Whisper Pirate" a long time ago, though I never finished it. It's still selectable for admins, but the poor contrast in some areas shows why it's unfinished:

    I might come back to it one day, but in the meantime, it's nice to know there's a browser extension to help you. :onya
