@maique @pcora @pimoore Thank you for the nudge. I picked a new theme, one that has a dark and a light mode, edited it a bit, and it's now live. Somehow the posts are not showing up on the timeline, but it's working on the blog.

Also, thank you, @amit, love the Paper theme.

@maique Sorry to create work for you. 😉 It’s truly been an interesting conversation though, I didn’t realize there would be so many opinions around this topic.

@pimoore No, no, for me it was the other way around, and I want to thank all who took part on the conversation. A couple of months back I started adding alt text on photos partly because I saw a post about it, and today it was time to deal with this. I had no idea so many had reasons to prefer a light theme but, once I did, there was no way not to do it.

@maique Yes, @amit! I like the Paper theme too. I have Tufte on my main (Micro)blog, @odd, but changed from Hitchens to Paper on my (more) serious blog @auran. @pimoore

@pimoore @maique most dark modes look horrible

@maique @odd thank you! I share your love for the theme 😊

And I have always liked to keep a toggle for dark/light mode - dark mode themes aren't universal in how they look. Many websites in dark mode are painful for me to look at. So I know it's each individual's preference. So better let them decide.

@amit True! I actually saw a PaperMod theme over on the Hugo site that I thought of experimenting with.

@maique Yes, I loved the Multilingual support. (with language selector) part.

@odd @amit I actually have that theme on my list of ones to port to Micro.blog, I’ve just had it (along with seemingly everything else) on the back burner.

@pimoore Ok, then I won’t start with it. No need for two ports of the same theme! I see many interesting ones, so next time I’ll announce it, if and only if I’m in such a state that I’m actually capable of doing it.

@odd No worries, my list has only gotten bigger in the interim. 😆
