Any news on the dark theme being available ? I tried the browser add-on, but even though it's dark, it's pretty ugly.

The real question is, when will the kvr forum migrate to Discourse? https://www.discourse.org/

That will be the death of KVR forums if that happens.

Discourse is like taking a well functioning website / forum, and taking a giant shit on it. It's a broken, ugly and slow system with infinite scrolling, lazy loading, and a terrible search system, designed by people who don't have a clue about practical user interface interaction design principals and conventions. One of the biggest computer graphic websites implemented it, it broke aspects of the previous one they had which are still not fixed, regular users hated it and left..., it also broke / changed user names / logins and accounts and thus practically nobody posts any threads or answers peoples questions there now.

But anyway... hoping for the dark scheme on KVR soon. :)

Came here to ask about this too, really makes KvR so much less pleasant to read and look at. VI Control just got a beautiful dark theme and boy is it easier on the eyes than the blinding bright we have here.

In the meantime, I can only suggest the "Dark Reader" browser extension which seems to work moderately well on this site.
