niso I think it makes sense to change the backround to black. It's kinda ironic having eye strain on a site that you're trying to find answer to your eye strain 😃....
Currently the solution is to use a browser extension to provide a dark theme like tfouto mentions.
The reasoning for this is to allow choice and start with a "sane" default. But I'd be happy to include instructions for methods to change it into a more tolerant way of viewing it.
There's also this.
si_edgey FoF / Follow Tags - this allows users to follow tags and receive email notifications, such as getting an email update as soon as a new discussion about Temporal Dithering is posted for example
Certainly, I can check that out
si_edgey FoF / User Bio - I think each user should be encouraged to add a bio with their specific issues (dithering / PWM) and their current usable setup. When reading a discussion often posts are only relevant if you have the same core issue as someone else so it would be great to be able to quickly check a user's bio.
Flarum bios have been flaky in my experience with them, as they were not especially great, then were removed and alternate available plugins didn't seem to be much better. I'll look into it however. The one you linked to I believe simply brings the removed one back.
si_edgey I would personally like to see private messaging back but presumably there was a reason for stopping it. I use Byobu on my site.
There was. I'm always welcome to requests, but it's unlikely I'm going to change the current private messaging setup without good cause.
https://chat.ledstrain.org is currently in managed hosting with zulipchat and separate from this forum. This is important when there are issues with the forum itself. Inability to sign up or login, the forum failing to render for example, are times where the ability to communicate is needed but not necessarily possible with the forum.
And of course, if a upgrade breaks things and is down for a extended time, there is somewhere to go to ask questions.
