How many people prefer dark backgrounds over white ones

41 replies 1 views Edited Jan 7, 2007
Just saw that thread about the nintendo forums, and since i do a little bit of html, some of which others see alot, i wanna know which you guys all prefer.

Dark backgrounds with light text, or light backgrounds with dark text.

I personally think it is much easier on the eyes, as there is alot less light comign from a page with a dark background, making it easier to see the light letters that stand out.

i feel the a light background can sometimes flare out the dark text, and make it harder to see it

I LOVE the PS3 and dark skins here. Well, before I liked the Black, Grey and Blue skin, then it was deleted *tear*

I like regular black on white and blue, (Cloudy Blue). Easy on the eyes, and not suspicious

I always use dark backgrounds, or at least have some very dark areas so I can put my desktop icons on, so I can actually read what they say.  My current one is almost completely black and white, with only a spot of orange.

Oh...you mean like forum skins?  White or Light Grey BG with Black or Dark Grey text.  Its simpler that way.

well thats enough dark votes for me lol, since you all seem to agree that its easier to see light text on a dark background.... thats ok though cuz thats what i always did, since i have always prefered it.

sometimes i see two sites with the same information, and every time the one with the dark bg/light text wins my vote
