    Up until now, we've had a Light Theme and a Dark Theme. I just added a Medium Theme and made it the default.

    To change site themes, use the drop down menu on the bottom left corner of any page.

    I think I should make medium a little darker.

    my initial reaction was.....oh, cool....super light gray
    *scroll down, click dark theme*

    "ah, that's better"

    in all seriousness, it probably should be a bit darker.....maybe halfway between the dark and light?

    Ha!

    With light, you can read black text. With dark, you can read white text. If I go halfway between, it's hard to find a text color that works.

    Now I'm being told in some circles that it's little too dark o_O.

    Let me know which of these you think is best for our Medium Theme:

    33488834185_c6453bbcb5_o.

    From left to right it goes:
    #CCCCCC
    #CECECE
    #D0D0D0
    #D2D2D2
    #D4D4D4

    Very subtle from one to the next, but #CCCCCC to #D4D4D4 is not so subtle.

    I'd prefer not to go lighter than #D4D4D4. Doing so would work for those who want the Light Theme, only a little less bright, but not so much a "Medium" option between Light and Dark anymore.

    I've changed it to #D4D4D4 for now. Should be a very subtle change. Text a little more readable.

    D4 is pretty nice. I'm sticking with the medium option for now.

    I've gone back to using the Light. I don't know why I dont much like dark themes, especially given that when I am reading ebooks its always a dark background, but there ya go. All good :)
