[POLL] Do you like the new dark background for Crashy News’ newly-implemented theme?

Okay, this is more of a throwback to the way the original site initially looked when it launched back in early 2012 and I’ve been wanting for a while to emulate that calm dark cozy feel of it. I’m proud to say that this is finally a reality with the new theme, with this dark chocolate pattern style to it, making it easier to read at night and less of a pain to look at. If you’re on mobile, at the time being, you can use the “Sidebar” menu item at “Misc” to skip to the widgets section if you want to quickly make a search query. Now, for the burning question, do you like the new dark background for Crashy News’ newly-implemented theme? Let me know in the poll and comments.

Although, I do have concerns with the oversized header image and I’m wondering, do you like the theme so far? Let me know in the comments and on the poll

Brand New Theme Soft-Launched for Crashy News (Test Trial)


Hey, just letting you all know that the site now features a brand new theme that’s similar in format to the previous theme but different in some aspects, like the accent, menu behaviour and more. Note that this is a soft-launch and may get reverted back to the previous theme that is being currently used. No opening date has been planned yet.

Sorry for being slow in terms of posting updates and news

I’ve got some chores and other things that I need to finish up while I also catch up to some smaller but important Crash tidbits that need to be posted. I hope y’all ok with some patience and slow down since I’ve got some heavy academic work and exams to do later in the month. This isn’t a break or anything, but just so you know that I might slow down the rate of posting at any time during this month.
