The trade off for reading it as a quote is readability on the dark theme, unfortunately. I can keep experimenting, but I'm fine with this for now.

I will never comprehend people who prefer Light themes over Dark themes.

I made a realization- Cat only started complaining about her text color when she was in a brightly lit room (and ofc her screen is super dim in comparison)

Be careful when doing these light tests! Cat's going to switch back to her normal color.

It's time to test the color yellow.

Yellow Testing:

Dark:

Spark (not legible in the editor)
more blue Spark (just makes the color lighter)
Spark, but now legible (eeee00)
Spark, but now legible and more faded
Spark, but now legible and more faded and more blue
Similar to eeee00, but the ee's are now e0's

I think dddd00 looks the best, but this can be further tweaked if you want something brighter.

I'm back to bump this thread because jean-luc stopped linking it in his signature and that makes me sad and I'm going to try to give my ststemmate Moltosha dark colored text that's not impossible to read.

If he had the choice, #000000 would be his pick, but black text is hard to read. Before he settled with the default text, but on dark theme his name appears white and he's not a fan of it. Moltosha was willing to compromise if a little bit of blue was mixed in, so I wanted to do some testing here to find out which color is both the darkest but still readable.


Why pure black is bad
000033 is close to Molotosha's blue limit
000044 is too blue
110033 I mixed in some red
330033 Dark dark purple
330000 Just black with some red
222222 Lighter gray
220022 Even darker purple
Quote:Why pure black is bad

330000 Just black with some red
222222 Lighter gray
220022 Even darker purple

At this point, I can safely conclude anything that dips bellow #3d3d3d (the background for the dark theme) is going to be really hard to read, and the closer it is to black the better, but not good enough. If anything, the added colors make it harder to read.

The last thing I want to test is bold to see if it was still hard to read:


[Moltosha] this is a test

Quote:[Moltosha] this is a test

compared to

[Moltosha] this is a test

Quote:[Moltosha] this is a test

I still feel undecided in terms of readability. Which one is the hardest for you guys to read? Do the colors seem easier to read for you guys? Does the bolded black text make it easier to read or should Moltosha stick with the default text color?

The bold helps. I find all of the color tests unreadable. -J

I'm sorry, I'm confused by what you mean. This issue is exclusive to dark theme, unless you're talking about the black text?

None of those colors (including the black name) are readable for us, but our monitor actually is raised a bit so things are darker to us unless we sit up very straight - if we sat up straight we could read them all, but I think we could probably read just about anything that wasn't the exact same color as the forum background.

Truly, finding a color that's easily readable on both themes is impossible. That's why everyone should use the Dark theme.
