Personally I find themes much easier to use in practice if the body background on desktop is a darker shade that "blends into the background" rather than trying to make things "pop".There's a difference between making something that just looks cool, and making it easy and pleasant to use. My 2c. (Incidentally, translucent themes are a great example of this problem. I've seen plenty that look cool, and have even made some myself, but they tend to be an absolute bastard to use for any length of time.)

I get distracted by a background shade that is too light in comparison to the forum content (ha ha). It's a question of balance, not of colour per se (ha ha). Which I thought I had made clear (ha ha).
