    Is a dark theme for OpenGL desirable?

    A dark theme has been requested a couple of times in the past, and again in since we upgraded. We are curious if you would like to have a dark theme?

    Yes please.

    Before upgrade there was dark theme, I used it, and I was happy with it.

    Strange how "Results 1 to 2 of 2" only shows 1 vote..

    Assuming (can not think of any other way to see it that would make any sense) the questions is to gauge the priority (with fairly ridiculous error margins) of adding such an option - i have to say no as i would not use it. BUT, it would be nice when there sooner or later would be such an option for thous that prefer it. Also, non-black should, obviously (or not), remain the default.

    I'll say yes as far as we keep a light theme too.

    For some people like me this is actually an accessibility issue and not just look and feel.

    Sitting here trying forum appearance options on this 10.1" tablet, I find I really like the dark theme. Thanks for suggesting it (and for installing it).

    Looks quite good. However, quotes and code blocks are unreadable, the show white font on light gray background.

    Can confirm that behavior here. Hopefully an easy tweak for the webmaster.

    I've adjusted the quotes and they are working here. Can you confirm if they are working there also?
    Thanks.
