Okay, I'm going to get a dark theme since quite a few people have asked me to.

They are going to cost $ so we can only get one.   :(

I've been looking at some skins and have rounded down the options to 4. Please pick your favorite among these. I will take the polling result into consideration but make my own decision based on cost and maintenance factors.

Here are our choices:

http://www.ipsfocus.com/themes/chameleon_dark/

http://www.ipsfocus.com/themes/brave/

http://www.ipsfocus.com/themes/villain/

https://test.cllv.in/darklagoon/


If you like to elaborate on why you prefer certain options, feel free to. And let me know if you have other suggestions. I'll certainly consider them if they look good and are compatible.

Out of the 4 options I like the first one chemeleon dark the best. While it is dark it also seems more open due to the transparency. The others look good but comparatively seem boxy and closed in.

1. got my vote :)

The poll results were tied. But it did help me to narrow down the choices. :wub:

Personally, I liked the Chameleon Dark theme (the first one) but I was concerned about the 'header which collapses on scroll'  feature.  In my experience, fancy features like that will work so long as I continuously subscribe to the 6monthly updates of the theme ($10), because themes need to be regularly updated to be compatible with IPS Software (the underlying forum itself) which is updated every 2-3 months.

In the end I decided to go with 'Brave' (the second one) since it is the simpler of the two. It is logical to assume that there is a smaller chance of the theme not being compatible with future IPS upgrades, say, if I stopped paying for theme updates. ($20 now since we have 2 themes for 6 monthly updates, totaling $40 a year).

P/S:

You can now switch between the light theme and dark theme, by going to the bottom left of the forum
