  • Dark Themes are the bomb, it's awesome that you're doing this.

Every site nowadays should have one, on both web and mobile! DeviMon (talk) 04:41, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

  • This would be an EPIC feature to have!! BilltheCatACK (talk) 20:08, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
  • I think that this is a great idea. First of all dark themes are very trendy and are really cool. Secondly, having a theme using dark light will help many of those who have eye issues or studying at night etc. and it is much healthier to use dimmer lights especially at night.

  • It wold be very helpful, if Wikipedia would offer a theme/mode for comfortalbe view in dark sorrounding. Also with the option to use warm colors (e. g. brown, yellow or dark red instead of blue) for people who usually work on wikipedia in the evening/early night and can't afford beeing awake all night, as they have go to to work next morning.
