Night mode designer here. Yes, I do, in fact, prefer the dark theme over my light theme (don't tell Atko).

I love dark as well. I have this account and my main account defaulted to night mode. It's a lot nicer imo.

I prefer the light theme, but whatever floats your Voat.

Might suggesting disabling custom css. Some subverses don't play well with night mode, imo

I'm holding out in the hopes that we get a checkbox in sidebars to disable a specific sub's css.

Vampire here. Night mode has been a lifesaver.

It definitely suits the site better. I always get a bit shocked when I check voat while in incognito.

Bright designs on sites seem to be going away. It seems to be a little 'stock standard' of a design.

I think it looks nice on some sites. Its definitely becoming a standard design, but sites like soundcloud look really nice with the white contrast. The white is part of the site.

I don't like the standard voat theme. I don't like its stupid hard coded margins, or how expanding a picture is cropped off by the sidebar. I have a 24 inch monitor and the text column is 6 inches wide, pictures are like 4.5 inches wide max. There is literally 4 inches of blank space on the left, and 6-8 on the right. Thats fucking stupid. At least the dark theme blends it a little better.

Imagus on Chrome and Thumbnail Zoom Plus on Firefox will solve your problem

Yeah the "minimalism" fad is to blame for that. Just about every site is doing that these days. And it's not like you can zoom in, no, that just makes the margins larger on most sites. And the worst is when you're on mobile and a site does this- it gives you like one sentence at a time of jumbo-huge font, and disables zooming out.

It would be awesome for a voat page to load "night mode" by default with the option to switch.

It would be cool for this to be the default for new user accounts too, IMO.

You don't even have to go to the preferences. It's the light bulb toggle next to your username!

I like night mode. It's not so glaring and dark colours just feel better.

Whenever I don't log in automatically from a link for some reason, I get a shock. The white is so glaring.

The dark side is better.

We should request to add the possibility to have Night mode on every subverses. Like for example, these two are on the "default" subscription subverse :

Maddox had a note about why he uses a black background

I've chosen a black background for most of my text because it's easier on the eyes than staring at a white screen. Think about it: your monitor is not a piece of paper, no matter how hard you try to make it one. Staring at a white background while you read is like staring at a light bulb (don't believe me? Try turning off the lights next time you use a word processor). Would you stare at a light bulb for hours at a time? Not if you want to keep your vision.
