    I know we used to have a number of forum styles to choose from. I went to preferences to check what we had (looking for a black with white text for nighttime since this page is so bright on my phone/laptop) but it looks like we only have default and mobile default. Any plans on making some skins for tv.net? (even event type ones like the glitter/fire, but mostly looking for something a bit more eye friendly at night)

    What could be more friendly to the eyes at night than bright pink glitter glaring at you from blue light?

    I would love to make a Darkfriend theme! :halo

    I've already made one that you can use with the browser plugin called Stylish. You can find the theme here.

    I still haven't submitted my application to whats-his-face to help with the web/tech side of things. Do I need to do that before I can make a theme?

    whats-his-face would at least have to make the changes for you if he didn't give you rights. They can be uploaded as a file too I think. Mucking with themes in xenforo also changes some of the layouts so it might require tweaking not to break our existing site format.

    Right, it's Deoan! :acurtsey

    It's Xenforo, is it? I'll look up a theme-making guide, then get in touch with Deoan. I'll post in this thread with updates ^^

    New title instead of Director: "whats his face"

    (I laughed out loud, at my office, when I read Mendo's reply. Fortunately my officemate isn't in here right now!)

    Alright, I have made a dark theme, and for now I have published it as a Stylish addon: https://userstyles.org/styles/153647/darkfriend

    Stylish doesn't work perfectly, though; the styles don't always get applied.

    @Deoan Kakarot is it possible to take this CSS and make it into a proper theme? I'm willing to do it myself if you're willing to give me access to the back-end temporarily.

    I'm using the Darkfriend theme and it is AWESOME.

    Anujun is my spirit animal.

    Thanks Kitan :) There are a handful of tweaks I need to make still, but I'm hoping to do that this weekend.

    But I'm not a spirit animal; that's a part of living Native American culture. I can maybe be your Familiar instead :)

    Once I figure out how to get this theme to work, I'll call it "the Dragon Fang" in my head. :lol

    Thanks Kitan -- you are awesome! (ninja edit: also, as your Familiar, I can protect you and warn you of danger! :lol)

    Leala, I thought about naming it Black Tower, but it's literally for friendly nighttime viewing, so Darkfriend was too good :lol If you would like to use it and are having trouble, please feel free to send me a message. Hopefully soon it will be an official theme here on the site anyway, though.
