Before we had the light theme, called default. I added Shades of Grey. Now we also have Shades of Blue. So take your pick!

Yes, I agree. I liked Shades of Grey, but the blue adds a bit of colour! The forums keep getting better and better!

I agree. I couldn't use the original dark theme as I found it added to my eye strain.
I'm trialling the new blue shades and so far I like it.

I might swap back to Default during the day and Blue for evening/nights

In the old days I used to have my command window, yellow on blue. :)

The thing I have found is that I never realised how much eye strain I had with the bright colours of the default. When you start to get used to the dark themes, there is far less squinting at the screen, for me at least. I have green eyes and apparently they let in a lot of light. I always need sunglasses when its bright outside.

Try switching back to the default theme after using one of the dark themes for a while. You will soon see what I mean.

I have green eyes also and I use Flux on my laptop to lessen the strain on my eyes.

On thing about this Blue, the word Flux is a link, but does not appear as one.?

Ah OK, not obvious until Save.

Isn't the use of flux now redundant with the advent of the Night Light feature in Windows 10

When I click New post, nothing like that happens. Have you cleared your browser cache?

for me every time I load the page - or do anything whatsoever that refreshes the page/notification, the red notification number will blink somethin random, like "7", or "15", just for a second, then disappear.

i did go to my chrome settings and under the timeframe "All Time", I cleared the option for cookies/data cache as well as cache images/files
no change to the flashing, except now it lingers for an extra half second or so.

I cannot replicate that error. Can you do a little video for me so I can see what you mean?

I will grab a little screen recording tonight after work. Not sure how angry the corporate A.V. gods would be at me if I tried to use a screen recorder at work. Ha. One time I tried to upload a .vbs file, inside a zip file, to AWF, and me + my manager got an automated email from I.T. within 30 seconds.
Dang! Harsh.
