Here we go, a dark theme for those who like it! If you want to choose a different style, use the bottom left of the screen to change it!

Hehe! I wanted to give a bit of a shock to the system. It is actually a bit more restful to the eyes if its late in the evening. when you switch back to the normal view, you can see how much glare there is!

Not bad. You can also change it in account preferences.

I am not sure why it says Default Style, Use Default style or Shades of grey. There are only two options. Odd!

Sorry hard for these old eyes to read, glad we have a choice.

My monitor has some horrible fiddly little sensors for adjusting the brightness. I just can't be bothered to adjust it. I have to tip the monitor upside down to be able to adjust it properly. This will give me a nice option!

It makes the Access World forums look like some cult hackers forum! :LOL:

I'm finding its giving my sleepy tired eyes a bit of a break. It certainly gives the site a different feel.

I will have to sort out the logo at the top. It says Xenforo now!

The sticky threads stand out a bit ridiculously. The colours need a tweak there.

Yikes, that caught me off guard! I think I prefer the old, but it's earlier here.

Try it late in the evening. I am tired, it being (oh drat!) gone 1am. I'm feeling sleepy and so the dark theme is doing the trick. When I switch back to the normal theme, its blinding! I do love the default theme, but might use dark theme late evening.

I've gone back to the other theme. It's clearly a matter of personal choice, but I don't care for the dark theme. Not a problem since I can change it in my profile.

Doc, I only have the dark theme as a default for now to a) give everybody a shock and wake them up! and b) let people know there is now a choice. Tomorrow, I will change the default back to the normal theme. But some indicated they wanted a dark theme and now they have it. I thought about adding a green one for farmers.

Just notice when scrolling that the little arrow on the bottom right now has 2 arrows to jump top or jump bottom. Wasn't it just a jump to top yesterday?
