You know, the anarchist one?

Yep

I do.

Here here. I don't like the new one. Not gentle on the eyes. Always liked the dark/red version.

I never changed from the red/black.

I only made the white one because some people pressured me into it. lol. I don't like it, and I don't really like the white theme for the main site either. I still use the red/black one there too myself. I hate white backgrounds on websites. It's like staring into a bright light... literally.

To be honest red and black isn't very eye friendly either, and it isn't the most professional looking... but what the hell.

Which is why it's great that there's more than one option. Razz

I find a black background with light text easier to read myself. I also like black and red.

I learned individually eyesight perceives colors differently, no wonder.


RE: Anyone still use the old SS forum skin? - Cianna200 - 03-19-2016 11:48 AM

Yes I still do.

The light grey and blue one is easier on my eyes.
:o

Then either your screen's brightness is too high or your screen's color temperature is too high. Likely both. You can install F.lux (Windows and Mac), Redshift (Linux), or Cf.lumen (Android) to adjust your color temperature.

Anyway I tried the alternative skins and I hated them all.

I can't imagine using anything else. So nice and easy on the eyes and has been (well, in some way, shape, or form) for 10 years.

I thought the old version of the forum used DarkOrchid? I think the Red and Black skin has only been used since 2012, and the blue and white one (which IMO is much cleaner and slick looking, though I just use the red and black one out of pure nostalgia) since 2014.

flux is fucking gay and fuck bright themes. anyone that doesn't use the edgy black and red theme isn't a tr00 ss'er

Have you ever tried DarkOrchid?

That's what the site used before 2012 I think.

DarkOrchid was never the default. It was a forum skin option before we migrated to MyBB though, I think.

red helps with dark adaptation. when your eyes adjust to dark conditions red light throws them off the least. its why stargazers and meteor shower parties use red lights all the time.

the eyes are most sensative to green which is why a green laser pointer at night creates an actually visible beam to point to parts of the sky.

dont know who else reads here at night in the dark
