Hey! I do have a suggestions for the style of the site. Very simple. 

Maybe add an Night Modus to it? (manually enabled or disabled) So everything that is white right now is becoming black. I really like it when site have something like this. My eyes just appreciate it. 

Cheers :)

This is a great idea. I prefer to use night mode on my phone especially because I'm usually in bed! I believe it uses less energy for the screen to display black too so it's environmentally sound!

I'm not a fan, but I'll ask to see if an option would be possible.

Here is an interesting article on it.

That is interesting and I'm not hugely surprised that black text on a white background is easiest to read but there must surely be something to be said for not staring at a bright screen in a dark room?! Or is it purely anecdotal that it strains the eyes?

They talk about that in different responses. One popular opinion is that a dark background is better in a dark room, and a light background is better in a light room.


That being said, I'm told this is a pretty big change. It's something we'll look at in the future, maybe at the same time we go to an app. Thanks for bringing it up aaronhawk. I'm going to lock this thread for now.
