No more dark theme on BI forums?

Recommended Posts

Today I've discovered that there is no longer a dark theme/style available on the forums.

This is really a shame, because it was so very easy on the eyes compared to any of the other bright themes. Is there any reason it was removed, and will we get a new one?

I'm also interested in this.

Yay!

I second that as my eyes are getting shot these days and the bright styles are hard on the eyes

I'd like to know the reasoning behind a possible remove of the darkstyle feature. - why?

Also, i'd like to ask for a comeback or a replacement of it.

I for one would welcome such an option......"Don’t Underestimate the Power of the Dark Side"

This brightness burns! :)

I'm another that prefers the dark theme.

I need the darkness back. It saves on power and looked better.

It would probably only save power if you are still using a cathode ray monitor.

Darker was better for my eyes. Probably the age I'm at. But the choice is nice if its there.

Welp, I don't see why it should take over 2 weeks just to get a simple response on whether it's coming back or not, so I went and made my own theme.

StyleBot (Chrome): http://stylebot.me/styles/9606

Stylish (Chrome/FF): https://userstyles.org/styles/112710/bi-forums-dark-theme

To use it, install the Stylebot extension for Chrome (or Stylish for Firefox). Or if you already have your own CSS plugin, just go to that page and copy the CSS.

This theme just covers the basics: viewing forums, threads, and posts. If there's anything else on the forum you'd like to see darkened, or if there's something I missed, or if you disagree with one of my color choices, just let me know and I'll try to take care of it or make a special version for you.

Note, you should have the "Bohemia Interactive" theme selected in the bottom left of the page. Other themes may work but are untested.

Works great, thanks man! Much better than the blinding white background.

If you want to enjoy persistent dark mode also on sites that aren't supported, consider installing f.lux. It's a program that changes the screen temperature based on the location of Sun (making the screen warmer during night), and also contains a lovely darkroom mode for hardcore users.

Thanks everyone, I'm glad to see my work has benefited others.

I just made a small update to fix polls in threads. If you're using StyleBot, I think it should automatically update you. For Stylish, you will need to go to the theme page and click the update button.

Edit: And updated again (4/16) to make the poll bars a little darker to not be distracting.

Edit: And another update (4/16) replacing the thread icons with darker versions.

Brilliant, vegeta! Thanks for sharing this.

*edit* - I have to say, this theme is far superior to the original dark theme. Great work.

**edit** - One small problem with text on profile page being the same color as the background:
