I've also just added a dark version of the default avatar, so it's not so glaring on the dark theme

liamdawe"Yeah whatever" is not a helpful comment.

If you want me to do something, be constructive about it.
What I meant is that I understood you can’t be expected to make the site work with all the custom CSS skins and addons out there so I would stop bothering you. That wasn’t meant as criticism.

That said here’s a screenshot to explain the issue. This is with the bright theme obviously, since I’m not a "supporter".

First the normal rendering:

Then with Stylish and the Midnight surfing CSS style:

Looks like the Midnight surfing CSS style doesn’t handle that specific way of changing the background color and leaves the original light grey instead of changing it to dark grey, so the text is quite hard to read. Unfortunately it’s the best dark style I have found and I’m no CSS expert. But as I said, don’t bother. I’ll try to fix it myself.

I'm actually re-doing the pagination at the moment to not look so crap. Please hold on, should have it done by the end of tonight. I'm hoping it will look better for you too then

Yep, tried all of them and none are dark themes. There are still huge white areas (the input text box, at least).

The newer pagination style is now up, and I made sure it has a working dark theme version right away. It looks slicker and not as plain.

Let me know if it's any better your end stan.

Yep, no background color issue now! Thanks!

Fantastic news, pleased it fixed the original crap style and your issues too, double win!

More improvements done today for you, fixed up pre-inputs on forms to not have a really bright part on them. You will mainly see it on the homepage of the UserCP.
