Dark mode?

Recommended Posts

Overdueleaf

UM team...

Is it possible via the platform used to have an option for a dark mode theme sometime in the near future?  Just curious as I have very sensitive eyes and even with blue light filter  on and brightness turned down, the overpowering white bakground an be very bothersome. If not no worries, just thought I would ask.

Not imminently, however this is something that has been requested quite a bit so I'm hoping to include it in a future update.

If you use chrome, there's an app that dark modes all sites.

Nope. I downloaded chrome for my desktop all-in-one as an optional browser and there's an app or feature that dark modes everything.

You can download software for almost any operating system, that will also work with any browser you use. What operating system does your computer use?

I know this is kinda funny because @XenoFish gets a bad rap for being dark and depressing at times.. But i see his updates as just being a snapshot of life, we all have those type moments we just do not all share them. He calls life as he sees it, nothing wrong with that. His honest and open approach is far more appreicated (by me) than those that pull on those rose colored glasses and "look how great I am" filters before posting their thoughts and experiences.

I appreciate the positive compliment, thank you.

A dark mode that could be toggled on and off in our setting would be nice.

@acute  i would argue against the word "only" ...and perhaps... that it is not all about what he posts but also in how the one reading the post percieves it. 

We all know the saying "try walking a mile in someone elses shoes"...or "try to see it through someone elses eyes"... try as we might it is near impossible, sure we could come close.. but in the end we always (and i would argue) CAN only look at them through our own personal filters and often read/interpret that which may not be.

While i would like to think by now, we would all know that everyone on this planet has different experiences.. and sometimes one pulls the short stick far more often than one should. But I will add this anyways

I always walk a mile in another's shoes before judging them.

That way, when I judge them... I'm a mile away and I have their shoes.

I did after you posted about it, and it works great for the old eyes.

But I have disabled it after I noticed that some webpages load slower than normal.

Nevertheless, I will keep using it late in the evening and at night, so, thanks!
