Yeah yeah yeah. I know. I did provide a transparent GIF originally but I think Mike might have changed it since then a bit.

Actually that blue on black theme at rage3d did bother my eyes some. But because they offered alternative themes, I just changed it...

What I'd suggest, if peeps are interested in hearing is if one adds a dark theme, allow it to be user selectable in the user configuration settings. Then peeps who want the darker theme can set their user preferences to it, and those who want a lighter setting, could set their user preference accordingly. Then everyone happy

might i suggest a .png as opposed to a .gif? .png's have much more accurate alpha layers than .gifs do, and look _much_ better; especially when changing the background from white to black etc. the only problem with it is i heard that internet exploader doesn't always render them properly (not so that you can't see them, but with a white background sometimes instead of transparent). i can't confirm or deny this though.

i would love to see a dark theme just for an option personally... i have to agree that at times the black on white can be too contrasting for my eyes in the hours of reading i do each day here. the only issue i could think of is that the smileys might look like poop on a darker background. oh well, that may be a price i'm willing to pay to help my eyes relax at times, though not always.

PNGs do have a lot of positives over the old GIF format. But as you pointed out, compatibility is more important for the time being so we'll stick with GIF. There are also some exploits in the PNG format under Firefox which can bring the browser down immediately.

Dark text on a pure white background is not the ideal contrast scenario for easier readability. We might look into making the posts' background area a light shade of gray or blue instead of white.

This is a good thread, good stuff.
