Suggestion: Dark Mode?

Recommended Posts

Pallas

Hello everyone :)


I tend to use the 'dark mode'  option on any site I am on (YouTube, other fora, Discord, Twitter, etc.).
I don't know if I cannot find it, or if it is simply not an option at this time.
If it is the latter, may I please suggest to introduce a dark mode option? ^^   It would be a lot easier on the eyes for me (dark mode also helps with my dyslexia) and for other people.


Thank you for reading!

I am always in dark mode, dark lights sting my soul. In layman's terms, I agree.

ooo, I would love to have a dark mode too. The dark mode is easier for me to read and pay attention to. So if it was a poll i would definetely vote for dark mode.

@Kyler R.   I only see now who I could have made a poll. Argh. Oh well ^^;
Thank you, though, for responding and your support! :)

I agree with the dark mode idea. I have sensitive eyes, and sites blasting white light at me become hard to look at after a while.

Maybe @Petra Jane  can give some answers on this one she is one of our computer Gurus here.  Or we can get @Dev to show up on it.

There currently is not a Dark Theme enabled on the forums, only the default Transpulse green one.

Night mode Themes are available from Invision mod forums, perhaps @Dev would consider adding the option at some point?

It's not something I was aware was easily possible. Mostly I tend to reduce the brightness afterdark as I switch between many sites and apps so a blanket cover works reasonably with me. I do see that it would be a good addition though.

I use it on my phone as well.  Reducing the brightness helps but for us older gals/guys with failing eyes and the tiny type on our phones it can be a struggle to read.  Lol

I also tend to use dark mode whenever possible. It'd be a nice addition.

I'd like to toss my two-cent hat in the ring!  I am pretty light-sensitive, and use dark mode for every app that allows it.  If TransPulse had a dark mode setting, I would switch to it at once.

With a bit of tweaking in Windows 10, I have found that you can set it to Night LIght from the Notifications button at the right edge of the tool bar.  Mine works best using the Invision Default instead of the Trans Pulse green default. That may be a makeshift until we can get our big computer guru @Devworking on it.

Thanks for that Vicky. It's easy to adjust the brightness on my laptop but I'll try that as well.

If you use Chrome, you can add extensions that support dark mode for all, or most, sites. I just downloaded a new one that works with this site when it cleared everything on me. 

Just search 'YouTube Dark' and the one that I find works is 'Dark Night Mode'.

I personally prefer Firefox, and there is an add-on I like to use sometimes called Stylish.  Takes some knowledge of CSS, though.

Thank goodness, that someone did an illustration of "dark mode."  I was confused and had been wondering if all you folks were talking about somehow accessing TP via the "dark web."  🤔

 

Yes, I see.  "Dark Mode; yes, that is rather nice.  I may have to try that for myself.

I recently switched to ‘Dark Mode’ on my iOS for my new-ish iPad. I waited until enough apps had support and now almost all do except that Safari doesn’t render this website  (and many others) in a ‘Dark Mode‘ theme like Firefox does.

 

Our Transpulse Forum looks wonderful in Firefox’s built-in version of ‘Dark Mode’ called ‘Night Mode‘ in Settings (see pic). If you have a iOS mobile device you might give it a spin.

Whats with Dark Mode?  It seems like a UI trend or fad.    I can see in some situations it makes for a better experience.  But does it really have to show up in everything with a UI?

I can’t tell you whether it’s a fad but it is a current trend. For me, it makes using my iPad much easier. My eyes would become tired and blurry after 30 mins on this device. I started using Night Shift which was added to Apple’s iOS a few years ago. That helped a bit by reducing the blue light from the screens light spectrum that tires the user’s eyes. But now with Dark Mode/Night Mode, I haven’t had this issue being on my iPad and it seems to keep the battery from draining as fast too.

      We'll have to work on that.  In the meantime, click on the Transpulse link at the left side in the green bar.  Look for Resources and there they are.     Jani

      Congrats, Tory!  (Love the name, btw 😁) Finally making those first steps of progress does feel SO good, doesn't it?  With practice, those needles become easier, too.  I know, I've been known to almost black out from shots and I did black out a few minutes when I got my ears pierced.  Despite working in a hospital for years (in I.T.), I've been terrified of needles and anything medical my whole life.  I was that kid that used to scream, cry and try to run away.  I am so sensitive to pain, I swear I can feel a needle inside my veins, which isn't really possible, but it makes my stomach flip.  Being fairly healthy I've escaped any "medical assaults" until I started HRT.  It's critically important to monitor your chem levels throughout the process, so hang in there, it really does get better.   A couple of tips from experience... one, don't be afraid of telling them about your fear/anxiety.  I was so embarrassed to tell them but found they are very understanding and will usually thank you for warning them, because you are not the only one.  They've had patients pass out, so they would much rather know ahead of time.  Two, if they're not already using them, ask the blood drawer to use a "butterfly".  The needle is so short/tiny you can barely feel it and it doesn't move around while they're drawing.   Recent experience with a blood disorder which requires that I get frequent phlebotomies brought on a whole new level of fear.  This is similar to donating blood and uses a larger needle so they can capture the larger blood cells.  When they first told me about it, I was absolutely terrified!  I seriously didn't think I could do it, but my life depended on it.  So, I told the phlebotomist I might pass out and then used distraction techniques like you mentioned.  It really hurt at first but eased up after they got the needle in and settled for about 15 minutes while a pint drained out.  Each time I've had one since, it got easier and easier until now (after a dozen or so), believe it or not, I can do it without any anxiety at all.  The experienced nurses/technicians are SO good at what they do!  The great thing is that after I got used to that big needle, I don't even feel the little ones anymore!  So, to anyone with the needle fear, I now recommend donating blood as a [courageous] way to resolve the problem.   For HRT, I would suggest you ask for estradiol tabs that you can dissolve under your tongue.  I still don't think I could give myself shots, especially into the muscle.  Good luck with your therapy.  In a couple of months you're going to start feeling much more like "yourself".

      Thank you - does it sound sort of like early Kansas to you?
    • Shay
      aha... I was also the person who wrote procedures for ISO and gage calibration traceable to NIST....   I definitely can believe it - I would suspect comparing general population and trans that the trans have a higher density of left handedness than the general population. I guess that's why a lot of us come from a creative background. That to would be an interesting study comparing trans creative backgrounds (music, art, theatre, quilting, knitting sewing, crafts, etc.) to the general population. I would guess the percentage would also be higher for trans.

      Yep, similar.  Green belt and am currently a fraud and security analyst as part of my job. I am constantly buried in data and I love it. Found one study, behind a paywall ; however, the abstract makes mention of: Numerous studies demonstrate that male-to-female (MTF) transgender people have higher rates of left-handedness, but the theoretical basis for this difference is not well described. 
    • Shay
      I come from an Industrial Engineering, statistics, 6 sigma, Green Belt background... sounds like you have a similar statistics and data background or interest. Certainly need larger samples and I'm sure the confidence level on our study is not very good. It was just interesting and I have heard about the studies you refer to.    What I would really find interesting (and there probably is one) - a study of transpeople and handedness compared to handedness of the major binary genders and maybe handedness of intersex and all the other gender categories.
    • SaraAW
      Too bad we didn't get more respondents, difficult to really draw any conclusions from the sample size, the fact it was sourced from here only and self-reported. Still, definitely interesting. Does not reflect the larger populations distribution of handedness by a very large margin. There is still so much we don't know in regards to the origins of handedness. it would be interesting if a larger study were conducted and if it would provide any additional insight to how / why handedness develops. There are a couple of studies showing exposure in utero to a particular synthetic estrogen used in the 50's to early 70's increased prevalence of left-handedness. There are studies also showing that exposure to androgens in utero may have a small impact to gender. To me, there is something to explore here to see if there is any correlation between being trans and handedness.

      Congratulations, Ronin! Glad that you’re happy with your progress. More good things to come! *And isn’t it great that you can choose your chosen family?

      Today is pop and rock reimagined in funk, swing and big band. A mix of Postmodern Jukebox, Scary Pockets and some other bands.
    • Shay
      That is excellent news - I will be listening this weekend. I remember meeting Rich Williams at the University of Toledo when they had 1 album out and they were opening for Queen. My band Silverhorse released a single called WEARINESS in late 1979 and WMMS in Cleveland kept playing our song and Carry On My Wayward Son back to back saying we sounded like Kansas. I thought that was weird being we had no keyboards or violin... but I'm happy people seemed to like us. Too bad the band imploded just before we signed with Atlantic Records - but that's another story. For now I'm including our song Weariness - let me know if you think there is any resemblance. weariness.mp3

      Thanks for pointers! I’ve had to remind my surgeon and nurse that despite the fact both K and my best friend here with me are Nurses; this is a totally different experience for us both. So I’ve been following their guidance to a T!   having some lunch now. Probably rest a bit then walk around a bit after while. ☺️

      Hi Ciel,   Welcome.  It's perfectly okay to question your gender, and there's no rush to judgment required.  It took me 40 years to find my happy place, but that was in the era mostly before the internet and digital socializing.  I'm sure by asking questions and sharing your thoughts and feelings, you'll find your happy place in no time, just don't feel pressured to decide.  Discovering our true gender, or genders, is a journey to be enjoyed and savored.
    • Sally Stone
      Kylie, this comment just cracked me up, so obviously you haven't lost your sense of humor.  Gosh, I'm still chuckling so much I can't sip my rum and coke.  The silliness aside though, I am so glad you are on the mend, and I wish you the speediest of recoveries.
