Please Vote: New Dark Style

Several people have requested a dark screen style to save mobile battery life. I will be adding the top style. We will run this poll for 4 days and everyone can vote on 2 styles. There will be a separate thread to add a new lite style.

Will the current two go away then?

Though I like Digi

Ooh! My old eyeballs do not like any of the dark styles! Is there a mobile version of phpBB to which these could be restricted?

Nope we will just have 2-3 more options for people. I don't know if I will do much more then that. I might consider 1 low res style for people who want to preserve bandwidth.

BTW just becasue you don't use a mobile doesn't mean you can't vote for one of these styles non are strictly mobile. I didn't vote because I personally don't like dark themes, but I won't have to use it outside of test.

There is no way to currently dynamically change styles we'd have to write that custom, but really, it will just be another option in the drop down. If you don't like them, you can stay with what we have or use one of the new lite styles. I won't be using a dark style. I'm right there with you They give me a headache.

Oh, I didn't realize we could change our own styles. Where do we do that? I'm not seeing it in the UCP.

UCP -> Board Preferences -> Edit Global settings. There is a drop down that let's you chose a style we only have two right now. Prosilver and We Universal.

I'll have to look at these tomorrow as a big thunderboomer -- first one in ages -- just rolled down on us and the electronics are flickering and beeping.

I was surprised purplexion wasn't getting any love. I thought people would like it for sure. I thought our current leader, digi, would be too geeky for most people. LOL

I found digi easiest to read. Purplexion was just irritating to look at. I generally like dark themes but only if they're easy to read. If they're hard, then it's not worth it.

I think all dark themes are hard to read. That wasn't the point though. I just think it's funny how out of touch with other people's ideas of what looks good are.

Well, like I said, this isn't anything I was looking for so this is only an academic opinion.

Ooo I like Purplexion 💜
Digi isn't too shabby either
I think both are easier on my eyes than the bright white/grey that it currently is.

I don't know if you are aware, but there is a prosilver version available in your UPC that is blues and teals, I use that one, but I guess it has more stuff on it to do, which is ok with me

Like Zangie I don't use mobile and currently switch between WE Universal & Prosilver. The darker ones are too dark for these old eyes but whichever one is chosen I'll try out just because.

I do find Purplexion has better contrast for an easier read.

Is there any way to put a switch that wiewers can click on and change the screen to the color(s) that the viewer prefers?

BTW I have a complaint about the whiny font. It only comes in [whiny]. Why doesn't it have [nasal_whiny] [snivelling_whiny] [buttsore_whiny] or [troll_whiny]. Furthermore, there are no sizes. Can't anyone do anything right around here?! It's not my fault I don't know jack shit about computer programming. It's not my job, dammit. I specifically wanted it to come in the sizes [senile_whiny] [drunk_whiny] [teenage_whiny] [three_year_old_whiny] and [Trump_whiny].
