    Please fix it. Also, the right side bar takes up too much space and results in less space for thread titles so they're too small.

    White text on black background is easier to see.

    We have a mobile app coming out that should fix it and I am talking to the developers about getting a light theme back.

    The old one was missing a LOT of add-ons and all the other stuff that fixed this current one and will need to be overhauled as a separate entity, and we were still trying to fix this one.
    Hard to do both at once, but I will post again after I have an update on it

    White or yellow text on black background would be easiest to see, I think. The text is already tiny on screen, so not having to stretch every time is better experience.

    Browsing on this black theme is literally horrible. I don't come on here anymore unless I have to or need to check something up, and it's not because I don't want to, it's because it literally is painful to read white text on a black background then use other sites which almost every one has black text on a white background (as it should be).

    I'm guessing white background uses up more mobile device battery than black background. For that reason, I prefer black background and white or yellow text. I'm also guessing phone users also prefer not having their batteries drained quicker with white background.
