A dark theme for the forums!

Discussion in 'Forum Discussion' started by PhoneCord, Feb 19, 2019.

    What I think would be helpful is an option to switch between the normal theme of the forums and dark theme like how YouTube has it. This will prob be very nice looking especially because I use the dark theme on youtube all of the time and on discord because it doesn't hurt my eyes. The forums look rn isn't that bad but I think a dark theme would be very nice and different.

    I think this is a really nice idea. Sometimes when I am viewing the forums at night in my room, the white background can be bright and strains my eyes. A dark theme not only saves energy but i feel like it would also be less strenuous on the eyes. +1 for this idea!

    It's not the worst of the worst light themes that we've got on the forums, however I'm sure myself and many others would love to see a dark mode. +1

    I love dark theme, it's so much easier on my eyes and I don't think it's too hard to add. No issues with the idea. +1

    Wanderer has already commented on the issue which can be found in the thread HERE.

    His reply stated: "I'd also like to throw it out there that we're still in beta with the site and have had some delays on feature additions. We'll also see about adding a "dark mode" theme for the site eventually which you will be able to choose over the current "light" theme in your preferences."

    It'll get added at some point, but it's not in the top of their priorities right now.

    A dark theme would be pretty awesome. Not only would it be easy on the eyes it's pretty easy to make. Some times you can be tired and it can hurt I can totally relate to that. Thanks for the good ideas keep these ideas going and you can help mineplex a lot more.

    I totally agree with you man, I love the idea especially when it’s dark in my room and it truly hurts my eyes. I would think the white version would look better. But dark version would help at night

    Your idea is great in concept, I would love to absolutely see it. I already understand that the Light Mode on the forums are great as it is, but getting an option to have an edgy theme in the background would make the forums more interesting for a select audience who would prefer that.
    Though I do believe this feature may be difficult, if not, impossible to implement. The forums are run off of Xen, which means customization might lack compared to if Mineplex forums had their own website.

    Regardless, I do see this as a possible cool addition to the forums and can spice up a new look for it.

    This is honestly such a great idea. I usually get on forums late at night, and the brightness always hurts my eyes a bit. Hopefully it gets implemented in the near future. +1 :sigils:

    Hey there!

    Honestly, this suggestion is a great one. Viewing the forums at night is very strenuous on the eyes and a dark theme would fix this problem. +1

    For the time being you can just use an browser exstension called Dark Reader.

    If only you knew the power of the dark theme...

    Jokes aside, I +1 this idea, though I believe it's already planned.

    I would be all for a dark theme, and I’m super glad that one is planned. I like to go on the forums late at night and I’d rather have a dark theme to make things less strenuous on my eyes, so I don’t have to lower the brightness that much. I’m not sure how long this would take to implement, but since Wanderer said one is planned I hope that it wouldn’t take that long. +1, thanks for bringing this up :)

    Oh yes, this is an amazing idea!1 I use Dark Mode on Discord all the time and occasionally on YouTube if it's late at night. Seeing something like this on the Mineplex site would be really cool! +1

    I think this’d make the site look very sleek, and also help your eyes in the dark. Definitely a good idea!
