OK, so things are moving on here, more than we expected actually.

Hopefully this is the last time we will be bothering you with stupid questions. For at least a week anyway.

We appreciate that pictures look better on a dark theme, whilst light themes are more work friendly.

There's no doubt we will have a new light and dark theme.

However, which one would you like implemented first? Light or Dark?

Also, please indicate if it doesn't matter which one, and also if you believe that the colour doesn't matter.

Please add any comments below.

I would like to suggest that it's possible to have both...

Couldn't you add a text paragraph style?
Where the pics would be on the dark theme... and the text posted in a light coloured box...

[table="width: 500, class: outer_border"]
[td]If nothing else... people could post inside of a table...[/td]

Dark theme first; Only because we already have a decent light theme. That said it really makes no odds which comes first.
