Why do you hate your eyes?  

Eww. Much white.

Not particular clever to be staring at bright lights, and sure the computer monitor etc isn't exactly Sol, but masses of white backgrounds raise the intensity of light that is emitted.

The least light you fire into your eyes, the better - generally. Black back with white text is incredibly legible, and vastly reduces the lumenosity.

Doesn't even need to be black, really, just a few shades "dirtier" into grey would be enough to prevent a page that's 90% glare. a pale blue, a mild green - there's ways and means.

Minimally, I feel there should be various .css profiles to choose from in order for users to set visually the experience they endure.

[Mod Post] One of our Moderators in training put together a simple theme that you may be interested in. He put it together quickly just before opening the forums so he is not quite finished with it. Here is a link to his post with the theme available. https://asgardia.space/en/forum/forum/feedback-11/topic/user-addition-temporary-dark-theme-for-those-who-cannot-stand-white-316/

Readers might be interested in a freeware application I use called FLUX, which automatically varies brightness, contrast and (white) colour warmth dependent on time of day, thus making reading the screen easier on the eyes in different lighting conditions.

like Amethysta I use Flux (or Twilight on mobile) if I work on the computer after sunset. Never had problems with my eyes again after I started using it and it is also usefull if you want to look at your smartphone in the middle of the night. (And the battery will last longer)

Ty, Jewel, but if i'd wanted to add things to my browser to be able to use it normally, I'd of done that already. If I was that offended I would of just adjsuted the .css and used it from local source.

I can cope with one white website. I'll just wait until there is "themes" available.

Btw, Amethysta, Open Source>Freeware.

Both are free, typically one is far more trustable however as the source code is openly published. There are open source examples of that functionality.

Open Source is not comparable with Freeware. Open Source is the decision to publish the source code for a specific purpose. It does not make a software for free nor does it grant the ability to clone, republish, modify or sell the given source code.

If any CSS capable users have the desire, they can uplload their own themes to https://userstyles.org Notable themes could be chosen for integration to the site.

Dec 23, 16 / Cap 22, 00 22:23 UTC

I've added a quick and dirty css hack to userstyles.org. You can find the Theme here https://userstyles.org/styles/136822/asgardia-dark-theme.

With this it should be much easier to read at night.

Just an EEEEEE instead of an FFFFFF will do.

Grtz, Dirk.

Same here, I use Flux, which is the smartest choice overall, since it applies for all softwares and avoid the blue lights that tamper with sleep quality. Anyway, other themes would be great, but takes time to make and maintain. Thanks to Inexorabilis for his user theme.

I also have uploaded a much darker Theme, so that you should have absolutely no problem with night time reading anymore. https://userstyles.org/styles/136928/asgardia-darker-theme
