Once you go black you never go back.

That's what I figured too, but since this new site has been designed for light and dark themes, I was wondering if anyone likes the look of the two tone site now. Personally still use dark, but I do like this white version now, the old design seemed to have not enough contrast with text boxes and buttons, so it all was really washed out and looked like an afterthought, which it was, because it was designed dark first obviously.

I always went with the white theme before, so when the redesign hit I decided to go with the dark one just for some added change. I'll also admit that the design choice to have a jet black background behind the top of the front page items and behind the videos was a pretty big factor in my decision. Scrolling down from a nearly full screen of jet black to white is incredibly jarring to me.
