I much prefer dark modes, as it's much easier on the eyes. My favorite on this website is Blue on Black. I also like highlighting my own posts so that it's easier to see them, but combined with dark mode, it looks atrocious and makes it hard to read.

This is what my highlighted posts look like in Blue (Default).

And this is what they look like in Blue on Black.

I tried changing the highlight color, but they all look bad. Strangely, this problem is less severe when it comes to friends.

This is what my friend's highlighted posts look like in Blue on Black.

The pop-up window when you click the user's name is dark gray, as it should be. The only problem with it is the color of the font for the time stamp. The solution I propose is to make it so that the window is dark gray for both friends and oneself, but adjust the time stamp's font color to something that remains visible. Here, black text is better than white.

I use the V13 mode myself, but options like this are always good.

The Site Display Style and Color Themes are two very different things though. I'm also using V13 Super Wide combined with Blue on Black.

Check the bottom of the page when browsing GameFAQs. It doesn't matter which page you're on, you'll always see this:

Now put your cursor on "Change Colors" as seen on the top right of the image. Once you've done that, this popup window will show up:

Now click on the one you want to change the website's colors. The first five colors on the left are pretty much the same except for the main color that is changed. Cloudy Blue adds more blue by replacing the white. Sepia changes all colors. The first five colors on the right are all dark versions of the ones on the left. Basically, you replace the white with black. Grayscale removes all colors except shades of gray. Cotton Candy is more of a joke theme as it uses very bright and vivid colors like cotton candy pink, mint green and sky blue.
