    I am not entirely sure what you mean? Like a blurple and minty green theme??

    Also I will poke at the dark styles in a bit and try to fix.

    Speaking of which: @seebs I seriously forgot what thing you wanted fixing so seriously, pics plz??(the problem with fleshland privilege is you get to deal with fleshland memory loss. Also I am a very visual person, so like... speaking at me is the best way for me to totally not remember any details cause I can only conceptualize auditory info)

    Edit: warning: obnoxious color changes may happen

    i meant i like the dark blurple from original blurple and i like the minty green from the teals and green theme and i was wondering if there was any plan to mix those (or something similar) since dark purples and light greens is one of my fave color combos

    i understand if its not, just figured it couldn't hurt to ask

    my bad for not clarifying in the original request

    no pressure, but would you be willing to make a dark theme with a dark gray background instead of black? the white-on-black contrast is too much for me :P

    Monochrome with not black background?

    Edit: to clarify neither dark background has a black background, but I could potentially lighten them a bit?

    Oh, I see now that it's not really black! Hm. I'm not sure I'm actually sure what about it is bugging me, so I'm gonna bounce until I can actually communicate :P

    sometimes, even if the darker part isn't black, if the lighter part is too bright a white it can still be upsetting for some people

    not sure if that is the issue but it might be part of it

    Really it's that I will be seeking a replica of my favorite dark theme from the forum I was on as a kid for the rest of my life, haha.

    @blue I am totes not against making more themes if you'd like. I mean, this is sorta my hobby :p but I would need to know what you are looking for. Lower contrast monochrome? A particular color scheme?

    Some of my tools are limited(like I can't change the logo atm so clashing makes me sad), but this is my hobby. I make the pretty colors. I fix things if there is a problem. And I will probably keep doing it until I am bored. So if you have a thing, I can try for it. Can't promise when things will get done, but I will attempt.

    I wouldn't mind if that (and also signatures and the stuff under posts like post #s) were slightly darker by default, but it works.

    Okay, so I think the thing that's bugging me about the current dark monochrome theme, which I otherwise like, is that the section headers and some other boxes are still dark-text-lighter background, whereas I would prefer everything* to be consistently light-text dark-background.

    *posting this i've realized the spoiler buttons are light but they're small enough that it doesn't bug me

    Also the lighter background on the post composition screen makes it low-contrast enough to hurt my eyes.

    ... And the post formatting option buttons are pretty hard to read?

    I admit that that is mostly a pet peeve for me, so I can totes change it back to the red if desired?

    Would the darker teal maybe be an option? The mint is a little too hard to notice.

    ...and now the alert number is nearly invisible.
    maybe make a theme that's like...Teal With Green Alerts?

    ETA: It's a kind of blurry pink colour instead of its previous clear-lined white.
