    How about those annoying floaty menus that you have to chase around the screen that I know became very popular with web design agencies .. I mean, way to go, make your site hard to use, that's going to get you the business ..

    Would people actually like the site to do a night/day switch? it is possible to code it but its hard to tell if people are joking or not

    Got an account on another forum and you can set your profile theme in your profile settings so could you not make a drop down menu to allow us to

    1. set it to light
    2. set it to dark
    3. set it by day or night depending on post code or location
    4. add custom themes which are downloadable from sites a , b or c ??

    I'd go for it - as at work, light fits with my office, but at home I prefer dark sites.

    I would also go for one that does it by timezone. Dark from 6pm-6am...light from 6am-6pm :-) sounds like a plan.

    If it's possible to switch can we have the option to choose light or dark instead... That way we'll all be happy... Maybe

    I presume your talking about mobile access not desktop site? as that can be changed currently via the next to the notifications menu at the top left of any page.

    I like night day swtiches. A forum I used to frequent had a nice Flash sun/moon clock they use. They don't change the colour scheme of the site to match though.

    I do that already... Use the light grey theme... I was assuming you were intending to change things again.
