I have asked the same question long time ago and the answer was/is 'no'.
I see you are an 'older' folk like me. And I bet you asked this question because your eyes (like mine) suffer more on a white-text-on-black-background.
It is unfortunate but this is life. And I am beginning to spend less time in this website than I would like.

Tap this button on the footer of any page & select a different theme

OP would like to change the page background from black to white.
But, the 3 choices (dark red, dark blue and rgb) still have black background with white text.
They do not really help. :-(

I believe there are more themes available for subscribers, though that's not really a solution for the OP.
I'll ping @PlayfulPhoenix as he's the only one able to fix that.

Hmmm....so, 2 themes with white background and black text? Interesting!
So, the 'better' themes are available/reserved only for paid subscribers.
May I suggest to the site admin that instead of having 3 black background themes available to everyone, change them to 2 blacks and 1 white?
BTW, @rfarmer would you mind posting a screen cap of these 2 white themes? TIA.

Much better than the default black background.
My old eyes just suffer more with this black background.
It is not just this website. Any website with a black background just forces me to spend less time with and even to avoid if possible.

For me it's the opposite, my eyes get hurt quicker with shiny white backgrounds.
But I agree white text on black background is not pleasant either.
That's why the Dark Reader extension is installed on all my browsers: https://darkreader.org/
It lets you adjust colors to your liking.

Does it work on SFFn though?

Trying it now (on Edge with DarkReader extension) and it changes the page background but not the background of actual posts (or anywhere with text for that matter)...

For what it's worth I'm a bronze supporter and I don't have any other themes.

So you only have Dark Red, Dark Blue and RGB?

My SFFN theme is dark blue and yes, the Dark Reader extension is able to change it:


Working on both Firefox and Chromium on Linux, never tried it on Edge.
But no effects on Imgur's comments I just noticed...

Yes sir, you've hit the nail on the head. My eyes just refuse to deal with it. Who do I torture to get it modified so as to provide a choice?

I do believe the way you word things is enough torture as is! As above, the selection of more themes was an option available to forum subscribers, the folks who support us to keep the lights on.

In any case, as we move to a more accessible forum, I've enabled the selection of either light mode for any user that is logged in. See above for how to change this.
