Yeah it's much easier on the eyes. Really pleased with it. Wish all forums would go dark.

Home page isn't dark but the forums are for me. I am not sure how I like it so I turned off dark mode on my mac to look at it like normal again. That was a mistake. All 3 of my screens went really really bright white and blinded me. I wasn't thinking......

One can also go into their preferences as well. I have mine set to "MacRumors Autodetect" right now, and last night experimented with the dark mode just to see but as expected, it was too harsh and hard on my eyes so I quickly went back to Autodetect, which for me displays everything in Light Mode, which makes sense as that is how I've got the computer set up as well. Dark mode is great when working on editing images and displaying images, but for text, not so great....also not so great for aging eyes! I could also simply have chosen "light Mode rather than Autodetect.

I am genuinely pleased for those who like dark modes to have the option. But they do my eyes in. Please always make it a choice. :)

I kinda like it. The weird part though is this bright blue separator between each post.

The white font, especially bolded, doesn't work well.

Font needs to be medium/light gray, IMO. Much easier to read and not fuzzy like white font.
I agree, on the forum home page where some of the writing is grey it looks sooo much better

So only mobile version has the main site in dark mode? I have dark mode in the forums, just not the main pages.
Correct, for now. Dark mode for desktop on the news side is still in the works. Several different pieces to the site, so we're rolling things out one at a time.

It's hard to tell what alerts are new, in dark mode. There isn't enough of a difference in background color. The Apple smilie :apple: in dark mode should be white or rainbow.

I disagree, I think its horrible. So hard to read and navigate things. Went back to light mode.
How do you opt out. Is there a way. The home page is still white but the forums are dark. How do you transition back...?

I love the dark mode. And the new forum software upgrade in general. It is much snappier for me. Thanks MacRumors!

Do you people find this sort of thing easy to read or is it just me?
Dark mode is ok in the main text body but there are way too many links that are either difficult to see or which actually disappear.
Plus, a personal thing- I react badly to unnatural colours. Fluoresent, acid or colours next to each other that jar and vibrate.
