    Since the default forum theme is just the Xenforo default theme which also was the default theme of Cheese For Mice I was wondering. Should we change it?

    Currently we have four styles installed.
    • Xenforo Default Style
    • Xenforo Dark Default Style
    • Social
    • UI.X Dark
    What is more preferred? A default dark theme or a default light theme?
    If you know of a good looking free Xenforo theme then you can also post it here so everyone can discuss which to use.

    Once we are 100% sure what AnvilGod's final style is going to be we can adapt it to look more related to Transformice such as we did with the forum icons recently and we can design our Elisah's devoted VS AnvilGod followers themes based on these default themes.

    I'm using the dark style personally just because the light style is a lil painful on the eyes. I also like rounded icons and such as well so.

    Can you change the theme ??

    No joking, I prefer the dark one because it's easy on my eyes.

    i agree with all the comments above
    dark theme is actually perfect to use at any given time simply bc it’s rlly comforting for the eyes

    plus i think it kind of suits the ‘anvilgod’ kind of theme more rather than the lighter version so it’s more preferable

    Don't forget that we got two dark styles, we got the Xenforo default dark style and the UI.X style. Just saying you like the dark style doesn't say much as it could be either of the two.

    My bad, sorry, I'm on UI.X. I absolutely forgot about the other dark style lmao.

    Nowadays you'll find most people prefer dark themes anyway. Look at Discord and such, it's default is a darker theme and most people don't swap.

    Oh whoops, I tried the UI.X Dark and that is so much better than the default dark. But I would be fine with either one.

    I feel like the only person that prefers the lighter themes, aha. The darker ones hurt my eyes. That being said, I'm fine with a darker default theme as long as I can still change my theme to a lighter one. Out of the two darker ones I'd say the UI.X Dark is better than the Default Style Dark.

    I wasn't even aware there is a possibility to change forum appearance, but I personally prefer to use a more darker theme (not limited to black/grey). However, none of the current forum styles are satisfactory. My main issue with these darker styles is that they emphasize the cluttered forum pages. There are too many buttons, menu's and area's that distract from the main purpose of this page: the forum posts.

    Maybe I am used to the atelier forums, but right now there's too much irrelevant information on my screen. At least in the default theme, this clutter isn't being highlighted. But I agree, the bright colours are kind of hurtful to my eyes.
