I don't get this obsession with dark mode on everything. It only makes sense for your eyes when you're in a dark room, otherwise it will actually cause eye strain.

Some people like it, all my websites are in dark mode with a Chrome extension

Much easier on the eyes at anytime.

I also don't understand the obsession.

The only time it makes sense to me is if you are using your phone next to someone else in the dark and don't want to disturb them...and even then it only makes sense if you have an OLED screen.

I find that to be a fallacy and I'm almost certain it's been scientifically proven as well hasn't it?

Unless your brightness is too stupidly high when in normal mode, it should always be easier to read black text on an off-white screen than the other way around with white text on top of dark grey or worse black.

The research I've found seems to suggest that a screen background matching your environment is easiest on the eyes - i.e. if you're in a bright room with a well lit background, then a light background works best, if you're in the dark then a black background.

Gamer16 is living in his mom's basement. Makes sense.

So how many people using dark mode all the time as in the dark?

I would bet almost none, which means based on that knowledge above just about everyone is doing it wrong.

My left screen is this window now and my right screen is a Linux terminal with white on black...the left is far easier to read except for the font being less bold on MyBB.

But my screen is brightness calibrated to sensible levels and not trying to be the sun.

MyBB background being light grey and not pure white is really all that's necessary.
