Looks pretty good, but what happened to the completely dark theme from before?

The black theme on mobile is like Darkside... Awesome! :D

As mentioned several times, it's the theme that takes the most work. So, if it even does get released again it won't be for a while.

This is indeed the master theme, I'm loving it!

Was the master theme. Someone ruined the contrast.

How black should have looked.

Look how unreadable the current style there is, and look how awesome nice readable and contrasty the modified one is.

I don't find the way the style is now to be unreadable at all.

for those who want a bit more contrast and visible links on the black theme. here's somethign you can slap into a userstyle.

If you use Opera, grab the easy user css extension here

div.entry-content a, a:link, a:visited{ 
color: #126;
}

div.content a, a:link, a:visited { 
color: #000;
}

div.entry-content { 
color: #000;
}

div.quote { 
padding-bottom: 12px;
padding-left: 12px;
padding-right: 12px;
padding-top: 12px;
color: #000;
}

body .maintitle a{ 
color: #fff;
}

been tweakign it a bit, mostly have black text in posts and quotes now, with white text in the black headers, and a light blue grey tone for the links. should also for for midnight I guess.

In case you haven't noticed, we did tweak the link contrast on the black theme so that the links are more obvious. When it was first launched they were mostly invisible (particularly the inline links).

but that also killed the contrast of the actual link text on the forum lists.

Strange, either something changed on the forums or the 11.01 update on opera or the easy user CSS plugin update broke something, my style isn't applying as it should anymore.

so now I'm back with the horribly unreadable light blur grey thread titles on white and light blue backgrounds. I guess it's the easy css one, though I tried with it as a user style to and it fails identically...

Any ETA on darkside, taking too long.

I like Midnight or Blue best. Black is ok, but not as attractive as blue based themes.

I got most of it done last weekend, and hope to finish it up this weekend. School hasn't been very generous about spare time this quarter :p

Thanks for the reply! Take your time; school is more important than tending to our aesthetic preferences :) I just wanted to make sure it was still in the works. You guys rock--thanks for ALL you do :D

More or less just a colourless version. I honestly prefer midnight over having a badly contrasting mix of black and white.

Darkside, on the otherhand, was the best piece of web design since ever!
