The dark theme is very nice; thank you for implementing this! I've been using it ever since the release!

The light one looks great and was the final enticement to me signing up. That said, I prefer dark websites and the dark one is just as beautiful. Definitely using this one now.

I don't know who created the dark version, but there are a few bright elements in it which could have been fixed as well.

Most of the ones I've seen are nice complements so it's not TOO dark. I'm a fan. I could definitely see those with an even darker preference still wanting something darker though. The current form is a 'professional dark' I guess.

Granted, I still haven't looked around too much so I may be missing some things.

In fact, I love bright themes. But bright orange, bright blue, white text etc are not exactly what you expect to see in a dark theme.

Well, welcome to the community! Thank you for the kind words!

If you could give me some examples, I can see about tweaking it! :)

I am not forcing it on you. Just like the elements I mentioned above, reaction indicators and badges are bright in the dark mode. There is even a bright blue dividing border line in the dark mode. Some of the default CSS avatars are bright too.
