I use and very much like the dark background with white letters. But that's what I grew used to when I came to ATS. My informal guess would be that users who were here for awhile before the change like the dark background, and that many who came here afterwards aren't even aware that there is a choice. Or vica versa.

Preferences? Or do some people like a mix of both, like a zebra.

What color is given to new users, or do they have to make a choice when registering?

(and if users don't know about the choice, it's in the last button way over on the right of the ATS home row which lists "recent", "myATS", "logout" etc.)

I use the dark background because its easier for me to read. The white bacground is too bright and the text seems to vibrate for me for whatever reason.


Plus black is my favorite color
haha!

Dark screen for the same reason as yourself and because it's easier on the eyes.
A few decades back, the fashionable colour was green, on the same theory.

I use dark. The white is too bright, but maybe If I were under dark conditions
I might try it. Dark is what I started with & only saw last year that we had a choice.

Just call me (zebra)...lol

I use both depending on what mood I am in; and what the lighting is... in the room I am inhabiting.

I like the fact that we do have a choice; it makes life here a ATS just a little more interesting.

Always dark. The white is too bright and irritates my eyes.

Dark green would be interesting. Maybe we can be given more choices, an entire crayon-box of backgrounds to choose from. I've never tried the white for more than a few seconds, so I'm definitely biased.

amazing

Same. The white is blinding. The bigger the monitor the worse it gets. Like staring into the sun.

I use the dark mostly.

However, I have used the white while in bed with my tablet reading in the dark.

Dark. Easier on the eyes.

This would be my sole purpose of using the Dark. I just can't do the White...it doesn't feel as much like home.

Posts like yours make me wish we could give stars on this forum. I had a feeling most people would like the dark, but you've summed it up well. And the brightness thing too, maybe the high quality and good content of the topics here feel more 'classy' on a cool dark background.

Dark


I just tried the white for the first time since it became an option right now and ummm yuk

Dark is cooler too

Yup I agree with most people here ... I use the dark as the white version is just too much on the eyes. Especially when I'm at work and hiding in a dark place to use ats instead of doing work

I prefer dark, because thats how it used to be here.
When they implemented the choice I figured most the older members would stick with dark as well.

Dark, the white is absolute murder on my eyes. I use dark themes on other forums if there is a choice, and whoop for joy when a forum's only option is dark.

Given a choice, I'll always use the darkest possible theme on a forum. I never, ever use light or white ones unless I can't change it.

Try money and I'll tell you....well, okay. I think the site dropped them after the move. Unless I'm wrong and haven't poked around my user data enough.
