What display theme do you use ?

So for the first time I’ve changed the display theme I use on tildes from the default one to black and I’m wondering what other users use?

        For sure. What I tend to do to help out with that is to use a blue light filter. Without a blue light filter, I think light themes are pretty unpleasant to use.

    During the day the default white, but Atom One Dark/Solarized Light in the evening. I hate that the theme switcher disappears from the bottom when you log in. It is such a pain to go to settings to change it especially on mobile. Or maybe we could get timed themes? :)

      I agree. If the settings were hidden like that when you're logged off, I would not know different themes exist.

    Well as of about 10min ago I'm now using Atom One Dark. Haven't looked at the settings page since I first made an account and just been using Dark Reader to make the site use a dark mode. Also learned you can mark new comments which is nice from another page. So many minor features I didn't even realize existed.

    Solarized dark. Reasoning here. I will add one more thing to my reasoning, and it's that gruvbox dark and zenburn remind me of coffee,and that the green unclicked links in both I really don't like.
