Please implement a theme with lighter colours. I would like to preserve my eyes for little longer.

    Give us more themes to choose from, please. I would definitely prefer more options.

    Switching from fully black screen to any other lighter/white sites just makes my eyes go blind.

    Even the contrast on this site: bottom part being black and upper part "Vindictus" outline being bright damages my eyes.

    I'm scrolling down and it is dark, I'm scrolling up and "argh, help, this light background, my eyes!"
    It's not easy to concentrade on these bright colored letters on dark forum eighter

    I'm all in for having the option to choose a dark or light theme, specially if it means not having dark/bright blinding contrast like when we scroll up and down right now.

    I'm accepting donations from the community for any future laser eye surgeries provided anyone has suffered blindness caused by this forum.

    Yeah, it is really taxing on the eyes. Should take an example of discord. It uses a lighter black/dark grey.

    This forum so edgy, I cut my eyes.

    At the very least, make the text lighter like in the post box or the like/ insightful/ quote/ report.
    White/ bright colors against a dark background really kills your eyes.

    I would also like to see the text color dimmed a bit, the way it is in the text fields and buttons is fine. It's also very hard to differentiate the bold text from non-bold with the current text color.

    This is how the Vindictus Wiki uses lighter text on a dark background, it's much easier to look at.

    We totally do.

    With regard to the actual suggestion, it's a possibility in the future. This is the first iteration, and we know some tweaks / adjustments are necessary. We're not planning to add an additional theme anytime soon, but we could make some minor adjustments to the current theme a lot easier.

    Please don't forget about this! This theme's dark colours are quite straining to the eyes.

    Being a graphic designer i would say that the best eye-friendly solution (since we talk about reading) would be the dark letters on a light background. Unless you want to promote something and you need this kind of visuals by all means.
