I got logged out and now I can't change the theme back to black. I'm on iPad and I can't click on my profile picture in the top right to change the color. There was a menu that used to pop up when you did that if I remember right and either it's gone or doesn't work anymore. If nothing else I might be able to tap on my name when I post this and dig into my settings from there. (Edit: no.)

Same here. An option in the settings to change the background color as well as the unviewable drop down menu would help a lot.

Just know that we love and support you as you make it through this trying time. It's not a fate I'd wish on my worst enemy.

If you manage to make it out on the other side of this, I'm sure there's a New York Times Best Seller tell-all waiting to happen

@zacagawea: My condolences. I can only imagine what horrors you must face on the white site. Stay strong and keep hope alive. One day you will be b(l)ack amongst your brethren!

Welcome to the better side of Giant bomb. The white text/ black background kills my eyes.

@zacagawea: the way I get around the site getting stuck on the eye searing white layout is to "request desktop site" (I am on chrome on an ipad at the moment) and then my avatar button and the site skin switcher work in that mode.

@jrm: @sparky_buzzsaw: @zacagawea: I figured out how to get it to work on mobile. Sign out, switch the color to black and then log back in. Always works for me when it switches to white. I'm on an iPhone by the way.

@zacagawea: I forget to try it, too! I tend to get stuck in the light skin for about half a day before I remember what to do.

Glad to be of help, duder!

As much as I can't stand the white site on desktop, I just realized I use it all the time on mobile...

Kill me.

I figured out a way to turn on the black site, but I'm on Android with chrome, so I don't know if this will work on iOS/other browsers.

first you have to be in landscape mode. next you have to go into your browser settings and scroll down to "request desktop site". turn it on and the page will reload and the site should look slightly different (in portrait mode, it will look like a standard mobile site, which won't have the option to change the site skin, so stay in landscape). Click and hold on your avatar in the top right corner of the screen until the drop down menu comes up and stays when you let go. From there, you can change the site color to what you want and turn off desktop mode.

There should just be a clippy thing in the lower right corner at all times when using the white site saying something like "Hey, it looks like you're using the white site, click here to correct it!".

One of my absolute favorite things about this site is the option to switch between white/ black backgrounds. More websites should do this! (I'm looking at YOU Youtube...)

Personally the white background is Waaay too bright and hurts my eyes, while the Dark background is just so chill and soothing.

That sucks OP, I wish you all the luck in the world in making things right again.

I just wanted to say "White is right". I am actually with you, being stuck on the white website sounds like hell. GiantBomb launched as a black site and it should forever remain that way!
