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!


Hello mystery, hello misery,
Hello -metry, how do you do?
Say atomic, say plutonium,
Sayonara, I'll see you around.
Hello genius, hello awkward, hello duty,
I hope you're doing just fine.

I can sing, I can dance, I can tear, and I can hear.
I can still be in part of this world, I guess.
I can kill, I can sleep, I can stay, and I can leave
From this full and empty world, oh, I miss you.


You're sunlight in my bones, when I'm all out of hope.

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.

Love can turn to a long, cold burn.

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).


I'm sorry to interrupt it's just I'm constantly
On the cusp of trying to kiss you
I don't know if you feel the same as I do
But we could be together, if you wanted to


Do I wanna know?
If this feeling flows both ways
Sad to see you go
Was sorta hoping that you'd stay
Baby we both know
That the nights were mainly made for saying


Things that you can't say tomorrow day

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.)

And their faces tell a story
That life ain't so sweet
