I don't think I could have said it any better.

Pink theme is great, but it would be better if it was dark.

I'm usually "dark theme all the things" I didn't love DEV's incarnation. I find the dark text on dark background hard to read, and find all the still-gleaming-white input boxes jarring.

Have you tried it recently? I think it's only getting better.

However, I do love the pink theme. If it was darker I'd definitely use it, but I simply browse dev.to too much to withstand a light theme.

Yep, I tried it out this morning - still not quite my jam, but DEV moves fast - I'll make a point to check in periodically! Pink is doing it for me for now :)

Yeah, it's a bit too dark, and way too high contrast.

Hey, I use the Pink theme. Snark feels like it comes with the territory.

I never knew those were the rules but it makes sense. U&I agree.

Snarky masculine pink is an unusual combination.
