OzRay: Cannot complain. I'm one of those that's now reading other sections of DPR regularly, rather than just the forums.

It may be for some, but the demand for the opposite, for nearly a decade of DPR, suggests it's not for everyone. And, as I pointed out, note that many sites with black backgrounds and white writing are going the way of the dinosaur.

Additionally, I don't sit in rooms with low light, gone are the days of living in caves lit by a feeble fire.

I suspect that white (light) backgrounds with black (dark) lettering is also the default for just about every major website in the world because it is easier on people's eyes. I don't know of one major media site that is the opposite. There must be a reason for that.

Only photography websites seem to dominate with black backgrounds and white lettering because of, I suspect the view that it's the way photographs have to be viewed. Even Luminous Landscape has changed their theme. And I've never been to an art/photo gallery where the walls are painted black to highlight the artwork.

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (718 comments in total)

This is definitely something I've been waiting for and good to see that it will extend to the forums.

I'm one of those that finds white/light text on a black/dark background extremely painful on my eyes, so such a change is most welcome.
