    Which do you think is better.....a light theme or a dark theme? Why?

    On your site, which do you have?

    My favorite color is black so I prefer a dark theme but I can understand why people like light themes though.

    I don't like dark themes because aside from straining my eyes, the dark color denotes a negative aura. With light theme, it would be refreshing to the eyes depending on the combination of colors. But very colorful webpages is also uncomfortable with the eyes. In short, themes are like food or beauty that is in the eyes of the beholder.

    i think both light and dark themes can be great depending on how you build them. some dark themes do give off a dead aura but sometimes they can give off a peaceful aura, WHle light themes gives off a welcoming aura

    I personally prefer light but I believe going with both is the best decision. Just let members switch between them. For example, at day I could use my light theme and at night in the dark, I could use my dark theme so my screen isn't too bright when viewing the site.

    I always go with a light theme unless its a movie based website. The white theme helps stand things out in a good way and make reading more friendly too.

    I prefer dark, its cool to my eyes while the light seems so bright to my eyes.

    It all depends on the forum niche. I like both dark and light themes. I actually prefer the background to be dark and then the forum section to be light so it's easy to read on the eyes.

    It really depends on the person who is looking at it but for me I prefer dark ones because it somehow correlates with classiness and elegance so that's why but I don't see anything wrong with light ones, it is actually pleasing to the eyes and most of people will prefer that features.
