Light vs Dark Theme
Designers and users, which do you prefer?

I have always used a dark theme, but recently I've thought about switching to a light theme.
I only go for color preference based on the niche, for my gaming community I use a darker theme.
But for a community regarding education, I go with a light theme.

Basically it depends on target audience what they prefer and you can guess it based on the niche :-)

Yes it depends on your audience. But I always find dark themes difficult to read.

I think younger people prefer dark. And older people prefer light.

Why not make your theme in both dark and light. That way your members could choose.

Or run a poll with your active users, those are the ones you want to keep happy.
As WallBB said I think it entirely depends on the niche.

It entirely depends on the niche. But most people that run general discussion forums these days mostly head towards darker themes as it's easy on the eyes.
I prefer light over dark but definitely believe in user choice so having both as an option is great.
