Dark theme
#1
I added a new dark theme. Each user can select their own theme in their User CP -> edit options -> Board style -> Carbon/default. Or the same can be done at the bottom-right of the index page in quick theme select. 

However the problems....
1) There are so many plugins installed, not all will work in any other than default theme. 
2) Everything so far has been set for the default theme. So for example...since i just installed it...there isnt even our forum logo on it yet (as i write this)

I dont think we should have too many themes. For one it multiplies the work for us anytime we change something...we have to do it * number of themes. And 2) there are often problems with plugins and theme that do not arise with the default theme. Most often the case, the plugin author is not aware of unexpected change regarding what that theme did, basically breaking that plugin for that theme.

This is the reason why the default theme is the "Default"...as it is the most stable.


EDIT:
I will probably be adding a couple more to compare different ones.

All other theme than "Default" and syntaxhighlighter v4(all same color,no line number) will not work.
I think we should keep only "Default" theme when the situation(not all stuff working) is like this.

I want a dark theme because I am in front of the computer mostly at the evening. And often I work at night. It's just quiet. In the dimmed room the light theme hurts my eyes.

There has been numerous requests for a dark theme. I think we should pick one and try to get as much as we can working on one dark theme. Personally my favorite of these are Dim. That is the first one i am going to work on to try to get some things working on it.

We need to replicate all the changes we made to the CSS again for a theme. To be honest there has been so many changes im not sure how easy it would be to do that.

Agreed, but at this time now, while some admins keep adding new plugins, it seems like a lost race.

As soon as we are confident in the current feature set, and limit upgrades, it would be easier to migrate the changes.

At some point, we will need a precise list of all changes anyways, so we can faster implement new mybb upgrades and versions, etc.

Maybe it would be good to make a plan. Figure out what we want to fix (like the unanswered posts and a dark them), make sure we are all cool with the list, and figure out an order to work on them.

I think the statues as it now that myBB 1.xx version will not get many updates.
MyBB 2.0 will change a lot stuff,and possible break a lot stuff we have now.
So we can run this version for a long time,
until MyBB 2.x i stable then discuss if we want to change over.

Yeah its going to be a major overhaul on 2.0. They are basically redoing the code from the ground up. Some of the devs said they would most likely support 1.8 for years after release...but that might also depend on the community and how much people are willing/not willing to switch to 2.0

Where a switch from 1.6 -> 1.8 was a couple changes of config files and templates...the switch from 1.8 -> 2.0 would completely break the forum. We would have to start from the ground up again. Of course we could use the current database, but most likely it would be resintalling due to so many changes.

Glad for the dark theme, although it's definitely missing some stuff. Maybe the best way to go about having our themes would be to have them use the same HTML and base CSS but include additional CSS (and maybe JS) per-theme?
