    it would be great if by default a dark theme shipped with xenforo.
    sure, many people will say 'just use the style editor', and i have. but there are issues that i have encountered that have made this such an annoying task; gradients that look terrible on a dark theme hidden everywhere, shadow css that is difficult to find and looks terrible on a dark theme, classes like '@darker' that actually mean 'lighter' on a dark theme, and so on.
    it sure would be great to have a dark default to base further dark styles on.

    I think the theme should stay just as it is. If you want a dark one you can easily make it with the color palette.

    i am obviously referring to a dark theme OPTION as stated in the title.
    and no, the default theme is not so easily recoloured dark, and not at all using only the colour palette.

    youve obviously never tried.

    I know what you mean dieketzer. Inverting the colors is kind of like a photo negative. It just looks weird.

    I think a dark option would be nice to have as well.
