    Which do you guys like better or most prefer ? the light themes or the dark themes. I like both but I prefer light skins over dark ones especially dark green or light green themes.

    If it wasn't because of my advice, this whole color scheme wouldn't have happened :p

    I'd probably prefer light colored themes, but obviously no too bright. I do love dark themes because for example, it bring the logo out a lot.

    The light themes are better. They feel more friendly.

    I had wanted a green and white theme for as long as I could remember. I'm sure your advice helped too though :p

    I prefer light themes, BUT my only criticism with Mybb is the themes are rubbish, the nicest theme i found even for sale was a dark one

    Personally I feel dark themes are rather gimmicky and unprofessional.

    I generally prefer darker themes but a light one wouldn't be bad either.

    I run my community on a dark theme as it was unanimously felt to be easier on the eyes, especially later in the night when most people are actually online. Light themes are often painful to stare at for any extended periods of time.

    I usually like dark themes or more of a mixed theme. I love themes with a dark background but light/lighter actual forum area. Sometimes all light themes hurt my eyes D:

    I'm kind of a fan of both, I love light kind of themes but darkened down. I love the kind of green ProTechModz is using, the dark green and lighter at the top really fits in with a light coloured background with dark on the sides/bottom. It really is easy on the eyes and by far is one of my favourite themes for a MyBB forum.
