    Could we get a night theme for the forums? By this I just mean a darker background for the page, I find night themes much easier on the eyes.

    You know, I agree, I didn't want to say anything until we got the ball rolling, but the bright light is killer. I have client side configs for that sort of thing, but for my phone. It kills the battery lol

    And to add on to the mobile viewing issue- bright webpages make it hard to stealthily browse a site in the dark when you're in bed with someone else trying to sleep. A darker theme would indeed be useful for many reasons, when and if you can get around to it.

    Haruko, get twilight. It turns of all the blue LCD crystals in your phone and leave just red. It makes your phone super dim in light output but it is still very readable

    I'm kind of concerned about how the tumblr app would look with that haha

    Trust me, it doesn't change the colors. It kinda adds a red overly, but it really does help you. Blue is associated with a waking state, red isn't. So its much easier to fall asleep after you get off your phone.

    Yeah I read a study about that. Too bad my partner's computer emits a blue light.

    Yeah, I turned my LEDs off. Too annoying lol

    Maybe, but it will be a while to get to it, themes take a solid while to make so we'll see.

    Yeah, I hear you on that. I made my entire company site with warm colors just to avoid having a day and night cycle of themes.

    Well yeah, I don't think a single person in this thread expected it to be soon. :p

    Zaren, check your PMs, I sent you something.

    Eek. I added an inverted theme, but because all the other images are separate it looks absolutely terrible (I'm a programmer, not an artist). You might just have to wait until Zaren can get around to doing it lol

    It reminded me of the very first freeforums templates.

    It reminded me of everything wrong in the universe. And my 4th birthday.
