I just can't get over how everything is so white. I have my monitor on 20% brightness to begin with, and it's still nearly blinding - the vote buttons are nearly invisible! I wish the website had a dark theme that looks pretty much the color scheme of the "QUESTIONS" drop-down list. That thing is beautiful.
The same thing happened on the Bioware Social Network. People stopped using the website because it was too white. Now they have a kickass Dark Theme for the forums. I hope this site will learn from it.
Actually I realized I was being silly because I have an extension in Chrome called "Hacker Vision" which inverts the color scheme of the website and now I can enjoy everything again without my eyes burning out. Yay :)
Good that you solved it. But I also wanted to add that if your room is dark, you should probably turn on a light or two. That way the screen won't strain your eyes from having to stare at the only light source. :P And GaG does look cool with "hacker vision"!
