Dark theme for the forum

Question

Would it be possible that when whoever has access to the backend of the forum and has some spare time on his hands could have a look at a dark theme for the forum?  It's not at all urgent or crucial or anything.  But I recently noticed how BI (who are using the same backend software as far as I can tell) have a dark them that you can toggle on and off with an option at the bottom of the page.

BI example:
Light theme:

Dark theme:

:root {

    --secondary-bg-color: #282a36;
    --main-title-color: #ff5555;
    --main-bordor-color: #ff5555;
    --main-text-color: #f2f2f2;
    --main-link-color: #8be9fd;
    --main-textHightlight-color: #ff4848;
}

It looks like this on a real fake site:

It should be relatively easy to do, i know some CSS myself and it wouldn't be hard at all  

Then you know you can edit the CSS files yourself by first pressing CTRL + S when in your browser and saving the full webpage.  You'd then be able to give those edited files to whoever is in charge of the forum 😀

It will be possible and I will eventually look into it  once my exam period is over, so I would expect it to be available in 2 or so months

In relation to this i ask what colours do you want prominent, personally im a blue and black focus but feel that a red and Gray maybe more suitable. 

 

throw your opinions for sensible theme colours below:

 

Main colour: 

secondary colour:

Highlight colour (when you roll over things):

Those borders are 2px, on a 1366x768 15-inch laptop monitor they look rather pronounced.  On a 4K screen you barely see them.  (Go for em, rem or % and not for px ;))
