Very nice visually! Thank you for making this available!
Took me a while to figure out the changes which I needed to make for logo and background
Extremely nice and clean looking forum. Very easy on the eyes. This is one of the best "dark" themes out there IMHO. Thank you for this Gator!
Thanks @Finnigan for taking the time to review my style. So glad you like it. Enjoy the holidays. :)
Love it! I was looking for black background, but blue is great too. I hope it can be customized to a different blue. Thanks!
Thank you for the review. I also have "Shades of Grey" if you were looking for a normal dark style.
A solid dark-mode theme which looks pretty neat. I haven't found a thing to complain so for.
Many people of my choir love this theme already and it's just up for a few days.
I'm thinking of making it the default theme as well.
Thank you, celebrir. It's really nice to see some are appreciative of my time and effort. Take care! :)
Thank you for this, great job, looks wonderful. One bug I think is when inserting code and previewing the message it's cut off. Try a test with:

[CODE="|Test Code"]Dim Foo As String
Public Sub Foo()
End Sub[/CODE]
@NealC Thank you for the review. I just tried your test and it works fine for me, so I don't know what the issue could be. I only changed colors, borders, and backgrounds, etc. There are no template edits used in this style. Thanks again, and good luck. :)
I love it! And I haven't even edited it yet. Has an awesome colour scheme which is good on the eyes! Please make more
Thanks for the kind words. I hope to make it better when time permits. :)
Our forum needed a dark (and free) theme. This feels very light-weight and looks cool. Thanks! Now, to decide if it should be default or not.. ?
Always good to be free. :) Thanks for the review.
I've been using this as my default style for Blue Moon Roleplaying with some tweaks. Nearly everyone loves it. : )
So glad you liked it. Thank you for taking the time to review it. :)
