I have been coming to this website for a long time. I think when I started watching was when they just moved into whiskey media.

Today, in fact just now, I asked some kind folks in the secret GB chat (I will never reveal its location) about a fabled black version of the site.

The good folks pointed me towards the two "A" things in the top right corner. I never knew these existed. I somehow blocked them out.

I make this post in the hope that some of you will discover the black site for the first time.

Join me. Come to the dark side. The black side. It is oh so pretty.

I remember the first time I stumbled into the dark side. I was so full of joy. Such a profound moment of utter peace and joyfulness.

Welcome, brother (or sister).

You never realized there was a black version?

Also, what's this secret chat? You can tell me, I'm not a cop!

I was actually really curious if there's a way it can stay that way with some account preferences or something... I have Firefox forget everything and clear its cache every time I close it, so I'm not willing to stay logged in, but it'd be nice if it could be a savable preference.

The black site is essentially the cool side of the pillow.

Wait. Wasn't the black version the default? I could have sworn it was the default, and I had to toggle it to white, because I hated black with white text websites.

I cannot even imagine going through this site with the white layout. Only time i've seen it is when Alexis and Dave were showing the redesign and they didn't have the dark version implemented at the time

Welcome to the dark side :D

Dude. I honestly had no idea. I saw some post the other day and was like "why does that guy's page look so different than mine". I felt alone, and scared.

Now I am one.

It was the default in the old days, they changed the default to the white one with one of the last major redesigns of the site.

It's amazing. I feel so refreshed. The "cold side of the pillow" analogy is perfect. The amount of time I spend staring at this website and these forums.... all that time it could have been black instead of white.

Black.

BLACK!

So, I'm reading this thread and thinking: "look at those ignorant fools. I've known about this since I can remember GB and been using it almost as long. How is it possible that they didn't notice the button?'' And than it hit me. I've been using the white version since the last redesign...

When you switch it to black it should play the Black Knight music.

I legitimately do not understand why the light version of the site exists. It's awful. So bright! It hurts mine eyes. Never used White other than the occasional lapse of cookies or on new browsers, and it's only ever one load, and the first thing I do is switch to the dark version.

Black site leaves white streaks in my vision when I move on to non-"black w/ white text" sites, so I avoid it. White site is more friendly to people visiting for the first time, too, so it's clear to me why it's the default. Black sites are kinda early-2000s. Actually, the white of the white site is pretty savage, as well. Basically what I'm saying is my eyes are offended by bright things.

Ohh my god!! I just stepped into the dark side for the first time. I knew that button did something but I never knew what it was and I forgot about it. Thank You for reminding me, it truly is another dimension.

Personally I wish we had text colour options as well. I'd rather have red text on black, like I did for tweet deck for years. Also kind of wish it was a darker black.

I would use the black site template if not for the white text burning itself into my eyes after reading for a few minutes.
