Dark room mode

Postby Silverin » 10/05/2017 6:19 PM

This is probably a silly thing to suggest but it would be nice to have a forum mode that is meant for dark rooms. I loved the dark color theme feature on outlook when I was working because it was easier on the eyes. I kept my email constantly on the dark theme.

Dark background colors with white text that is easier on the eyes at night when your typing instead of the bright white. I just find it hard to look at for any extended periods.

Pardon if I am making no sense.

Forum themes would be a really cool thing to implement in the future, I agree!
In the morning when I wake,
And the sun is coming through,
Oh, you fill my lungs with sweetness,
And you fill my head with you.

Shall I write it in a letter?
Shall I try to get it down?
Oh, you fill my head with pieces
Of a song I can't get out.

Can I take it to a morning
Where the fields are painted gold,
And the trees are filled with memories
Of the feelings never told?

When the evening pulls the sun down,
And the day is almost through,
Oh, the whole world it is sleeping,
But my world is you.


Can I be close to you?

I for one have always wanted to see more themes period xD Like I was imagining themes based on each of the major roleplay regions. That being said, I don't know how difficult it is to change the theme. But I'd definitely support having a dark variant at the very least.

My sig would look SO NICE against a dark background. ;)

I've always wanted a darker layout! If it's not too hard to implement, I'd definitely use it.

Maybe have it in the settings options, so that you could choose to use the dark option or the light option as you prefer?

I also think individual bgs for the rp areas would be cool!

As the person in charge of coding said template. Honestly, it's possible but it could potentially be a lot of work. We're not going to install a random theme that doesn't match the Evelon branding, we'd want it to be nice which means design work needs to be done. Also the clickable mod is installed directly into the theme, so I'd need to make sure that doesn't break either.

So, yeah, it's possible but a lot of work. I'm technically supposed to be taking a break from Evelon due to my stress levels right now as well and I have a lot of other half finished projects I want to finish first (specifically hosting all the pets on the website & rebuilding the website to be a little more easier to use/update).

This is understandable. Take your time with your break and don't feel pressured to do things. Its not something that should be rushed. c:

Just poking my head in to point out that when I've needed to work late at night and need a darker screen, I just go into my computer settings and turn on the inverted colours. It can be a blessing to use on occasion.

(In the case of my mac, it's found in accessibility settings, I can't remember where I found it on Windows once - but either display or accessibility I would think.)
