So basically we have Reading enhancement by using lower contrast.

We could stop using light and dark coloring appearances for GUI's. I believe this is why people gets caught-up.

I repeat Reading enhancement and yes if someone only "prefers" dark or light themes then this is an advice.

Stack Exchange is not going to make a dark theme for every site, nor should they. The overhead of managing/maintaining all of those themes across one hundred something sites is not easy.

If you want one, make it yourself or use a userscript.

  • You are overgeneralizing the discussion. Of course the main team won´t do that but the desing theme if they got no-one for that then be humble instead. DOT Salutations

    What is a WTV? @userDepth To me this answers seems perfectly reasonable, there are so many plug ins and scripts for readability available that it is not worth SE managing the themes, it is not hard to install a browser plug in. I have to ask, how well did you think demanding a theme would go? Why not just ask nicely?

  • @MarkKirby I had to look up "WTV" = "Whatever". All these abbreviations designed for people texting on their phones but being typed into posts are getting tiresome. Commented Oct 22, 2016 at 17:07
  • @WinEunuuchs2Unix Now I am more confused, I thought he was asking for WTV to get a dark theme :/
