    But why? The current color is easy on the eyes. That's all that matters.
    As I get older my eyes agree

    I think a black night mode is sometimes not as good. Whites and bright colors are too bright.
    Based on what I see with other apps using a dark mode, I think it would be better than the current brown. The black makes the white and colors "pop" which to me makes for easier reading. IMHO

    Personally I prefer the black look, it’s also better on battery life for OLED screens and reduces the chance of burn-in. The battery life bit helps a lot more when other apps have black as well, and currently, of the apps I have with a dark mode, Tapatalk is the only one that doesn’t have black. It would also be beneficial for Tapatalk to give us more options for a dark mode. Preferably text color options with a black background. However, the discussion is moot as Tapatalk likely won’t implement any of it. If they do, it’ll be whatever they want, not what the users want.

    Some people don't like the contrast that high. If it's an option along with the brown, then it works. Too much "pop" can hurt the eyes just as much as bright white. I kinda like the inbetweeny of the brown. But it doesn’t really matter to me.

    This is why I asked for opinions/thoughts on a dark mode. Just curious about what the majority thinks.

    Just a few examples of apps/wallpaper with a dark mode. It's not overwhelming with white writing or colors in my opinion. The contrast looks good.

    Regardless, good luck trying to get TapaTalk or Quoord Systems to change/do anything. Unless it makes them more money.

    Thanks. We shall see (fingers crossed). Maybe if I could get more positive feedback it would help.

    Well, I did request it on their support site on the 6th.

    Well I guess no one is really interested in a black instead of brown night mode on Tapatalk.

    I couldn’t care less, actually. Dark and black aren’t synonymous, therefore I don’t blame Tapatalk devs for using brown.

    I had to revert back to 8.1.7 because as of now I can’t load a number of forums (they simply time out in 8.1.8) and posting either fails or reports I’m making duplicate posts.

    I’m guessing this is related to Kin reward tracking as things were working last night.

    I'm having the same issues. Log in problems, can't post an image on the TapaTalk support forum, etc.

    Me too. But it appears TapaTalk is trying to force users to participate in the "kin" stuff. I got this pop up with no way to dismiss it.

    I don’t think the kin feature is tied to dark mode because all I did was like 5 posts and the “get Kin” option popped up on the screen.

    I see both gray and brown/brownish mix when using night mode in Tapatalk. I prefer it to to be more like the Slack dark mode colors.
