Did you know has themes? Until recently, I definitely didn't. Now I can't live without night theme, it even turns the "Write A Post" button into an awesome street sign.

How to Use Themes

  1. Go to Settings

  2. Go to Settings->Misc

  3. Scroll Down and Choose Your Theme

  4. Even Transfers to Mobile!

Using dark theme rn.

I try to get dark theme on every site I go on, usually requiring external stylesheet with Stylish extension.

I love it when sites provide their own dark themes since 3rd party stylesheets can get out of sync with site layout updates.

I am on the same boat. I didn't know there were themes until recently because I am so used to gui's having that available on the main screen.

Nevertheless I use dark theme on anything I use, if it is available. If not available, on chrome I use stylus and most websites have a css dark style sheet to ease my eyes.

Ahaha street sign, love it.

I use the pink theme. It adds a solid pop of color.

The pink one, no idea why. I guess I want to be different (?)

Default now but I switch things up often. I feel that’s pretty important for dog-fooding the themes.

I think night theme might need a bit more contrast. What do you think?

Default, Sans Serif. I tried dark, and switched back.

I didn't know there were there until this post. After cycling through all them, I am sticking with the default. I tend to use dark theme, but something just seems right about the default on here.

Dark theme. Comic sans font. It's a beauty.

Pink is the only worthwhile theme. Don't @ me.

Minimal Light Theme.
According to me dark theme is good for coding, not reading.

I've been using the pink lately. Initially I used it to fix some issues in the theme and then I just stuck with it.

Strangely, the default theme. I say "strangely" because I usually gravitate towards darker themes, but that just looks WRONG here.

It’s just a lot easier on my eyes. I just think has a bit more of a cartoony look which is why the night theme looks a bit unusual.

There also more then 2 themes, check out the others!
