Darkside appears to have gone completely no from the front page, it is now far too bright. Has something changed in the last half hour or so?

Yes, I'd love to get it.
weren't you also a fan of the pink theme at one time?
I should lighten the theme every week, see if anyone notices. Then in a few months time it'll look exactly like the default theme /me dev.troll
I know you totally don't mean it that way, but I feel kind of urged to say something about staff loving to drop popular features:
Well knowing how IPB is with upgrades, if the skin requires little to no work, I'm sure we'll keep it. But we know that won't be the case. We're not going to just delete it, unless there is a reason. (Even tho I would love to )

Gonna chime in as another major Darkside fan. I frequent the forums a lot more than the main page, especially since the darker option has gone away there. It really is a lot nicer to view than all the bright crap, which is btw a big reason I am in no hurry to upgrade my Microsoft Office either. Huge white screen in a dark room, and against a dark wallpaper, is just painful.

There is a huge difference in brightness levels of the default theme vs darkside. On the forum side I would like to keep darkside around if possible. It's actually been found that light text on dark backgrounds is easier to read against than dark text against light backgrounds.

+1 for Darkside =)
I don't have problems with darkside - bar when people specify their own font colours (eg. when posting a news article, they post black text). Simple fix tho, I just select the font to read it...still burns my eyes, but hey =P

Because that's the exact Opposite of Darkside, and for some of us, it's hard on the eyes.. I don't like white pages with black text, it irritates my eyes..
Why not you guys just use the Pegasus theme instead of the Darkside theme?

I'm also an avid darkside user. As many have stated, it's just much easier on the eyes. I'd hate to see it go, but if it must, I suppose I could adapt.
It does suck if you've been on Neowin for a while, in a dark room, then you need to google something, it's like staring at the sun.
