Is there any possibility of a lighter theme, white background and less moody?
Unfortunately Discourse does not have any options for selectable colour themes on a per user basis, so any changes are site wide.
And so far the feedback for the dark theme has been really positive.
Unfortunately I'm going to be different and say I prefer white coloured background in all my text based computer uses.
It's a shame Discourse doesn't allow this.
As Discourse is modern it keeps getting updates, so you never know. If the option becomes available I will look into it.
I'm with wuyanxu on this, although darker colours are not the end of the world.
I like it, it's more energy efficient
The dark theme looks good on my desktop, although I haven't tried it on phone or tablet yet.
Another +1 for the dark theme, light text on dark is much easier to read imo.
pssh that's because you belong to the dark side
I must admit its easy on the eye so no objections here!
I'd have to go with the dark theme, it matches the deepest reaches of my soul........... If I had one
Easier to read in the dark dark cave that I live in.....
Stay with the darker coloured themes, those lighter ones burn my retinas.
