    I have a created a theme for Skyblock forums that is easier on the eyes late at night. Alas, it cannot be used by all forum users: it required the Chrome plug-in, Stylebot. This theme may be buggy, and I apologise for this.

    Examples of what the theme looks like


    How to install the theme


    Latest updates (18/08):
    - The background is now a fixed, subtly twinkling star background--oh, so nighty! Very parallax!
    - The logo is no longer a replacement logo: it's now the original, tilted slightly for that "why did you tilt the logo" effect!
    - Sorry brown premiums: you're now orange (just a lighter shade of brown in the end). Also, all premiums are pastel colours.
    - Fixed up general stuff.
    - The search bar is less obtrusive.
    - Darkened profile comment boxes
    - Try as I might, I couldn't darken the reply box, but I did at least make the buttons prettier.
    - General bug fixes

    - I'm not entirely sure what I added but it's been four months, I was bound to add something.
    - Now compatible with moderator functions

    I'm not really liking the colours. It just doesn't go together very well. Theres blue and brown, black and grey text which is a little much. I think to have a dark theme is one thing but to make it look better it needs to come away from the blue and the background should be darker, and the text should be white.

    You make a good point. The brown text is accidental - I didn't notice it on my monitor. It probably should be darker, yes. I'll work on it some more.

    Honestly we can just get a professional XenForo website developer to create us an amazing theme. Yours looks fine but ... paying a few dollars wont hurt cyps money.

    Grey text on a black background makes me want to rip out my eyes.

    I offered to buy a $35 theme and he said no. -.-

    Does this look any better? I think I could still go darker on the main bit, I getting rid of the blue is a lot nicer, you're right.

    I hate to be picky, but each box needs a border. It kinda bleeds into one and it's easy to lose where you're at.

    If you think so. I don't like the borders, but they might make it easier to read. I feel like the images and names split up everything well enough. I'll see how it looks with a divider.

    Odd, re-adding it from scratch works for me... I'll have to do more testing. Make sure that the first line says
    Code:
    li.message.staff {

    Yeah it looks better. The blue could be replaced with a lighter grey or silver type colour.

    Cool thanks, and I also like how I'm able to edit the code to suit myself cx
