Poll Black or White GB theme? (330 votes)

Black 79%
White 20%
But if you're thinkin' about my baby, it don't matter if you're black or white~~ (Results Pls) 7%

Was curious to see which theme people have mostly chosen (choice available in top right) for the site, especially as white is default, but I feel that the black is the true GB way.

Black. White hurts my eyes if I look at it for more than 5 minutes.

Black. Now if only there was an option for red text I'd be set.

What do you mean? Are you referring to the fact that the black theme isn't actually black but lighter hues?

Black, and anyone who says otherwise is objectively and subjectively wrong in every way and should reevaluate the decisions he/she has made in life.

I forgot the site had an option to change. I've been using white this whole time. Seeing it in black again is WEIRD!

Black, because I like my retinas. If Geocities-era internet had anything right, it was black backgrounds/blackgrounds.

I look forward to a day when we can enjoy a website regardless of it's colour.

That said, I tend to roll black site tendency when I can be bothered/remember to change it.

Black - you know the tests at the start of games where they ask you to move the slider so that one of the images is barely visible? The less I see of the writing on my walls the better. It is crayon though, so I should just wash it off.

Just like with every single website, dark themes are far superior.

I would say black all the way, specially for the desktop site, but I strangely prefer the white on the mobile site. Could not tell you why.

I switched over to white on this page since I've been using black for as long as I can remember.

I immediately yelled in disgust: "I CAN'T EVEN READ THIS!"

and vowed never to do such a horrible thing again.

The thing is black text and white background looks like any tech support forum on the web, so I can safely use the site at work. any website that has a black background looks shady.

That's because it is shady, in that it protects you from the searing bright light of bad web design.

Black text on white background is easier on the eyes than white text on black background.

Black is the only option.

All the OGs like myself use black. Only the young thugs and hoods use white.

I once had a white one. I always like white, hahaaaaa.

But i give it to my cousin 'cause he liked it very much. And now i can only play GB games on my new JXD s7800b, but really it runs great anyway, which consoles me a lot.

Every site should have a a black theme. This is soo much better for the eyes. GB are pioneers in eye preservation technology. I mean we kinda need eyes to see their content! Why does youtube not leave that "earthday dimming the blinding white background light switch" functionality on all year long?

White, because the black page burns it's white text into my eyes. I'll read a block of text for a few minutes and it will actually burn itself into my eyes and stay in my vision for a good 20 to 30 seconds after I stop looking at the screen. Maybe there's something terribly wrong with my eyes, but I personally prefer the white theme for that reason alone.

I tried going white back in like 2008, then one time I forgot to log into my account and found the black so relaxing to my eyes and stuck with it.
