I've been on ReasonTalk for 5+ years and I JUST NOW realized there is a dark mode! I prefer dark mode for all my other sites, so this is nice. In case you guys were also unaware, it's in your account settings "board preferences" dark milk. Anyway........ cool!

Good find!

Trying it out now, I'm wishing the text was a bit brighter for links, as the low contrast makes it harder to read.

If you're using windows you should probably look at your advanced display settings and calibrate the colour settings.

I've been using dark mode for a while and never had a problem with it.

Dark mode is crucial. CRUCIAL I say! It blows my mind that only in the last year (or so?) Windows has implemented an O/S wide dark mode. I cannot believe it took that long. Same with Apple iO/S. Makes massive difference for my eyes. I feel like my eyes are melting or something when I stare at a bright white light and try to read. I don't know how anyone can stand it.

I'm not recalibrating my display for one website, lol... the colors are too close together.

I'm also seeing now that the emoticons are showing white matte artifacts around their edges when viewed on a dark backdrop. Not super pleasant to look at.

I didn't calibrate my monitor to see this website in dark mode either, I'm just saying that because I chose to set my monitor up properly it works. It'll probably make Reason easier for you to see too.
