Actually, I went to blackle.com and realized the dark is WAY easier my eyes, which squint in bright light. I can read it fine, maybe even better, but those are just my reading preferences. The light colored fonts are only hard to read on WI on the light colored backround.
I just looked this up, and instead of doing all this work, and the controversy of whether it's worth it, just have people turn down screen brightness to definitely save some energy.
There is also a Greygle with grey backround and black font.

Thanks for the info Justin, and it's a good idea, but would require a LOT of work for just one day. And gReTa's right- it's simply hard on the eyes, because we'd all have to use light colored fonts that are hard to read.
To be more eco-friendly, I think that WI should go black for a day! By going black, I mean changing the background colors to black for one day (kind of like blackle.com). This saves electricity because light colors take more electricity to make. Does anybody agree with me?
That would be so cool! =DD

Think, just how many people use Google?
Google went black on day, I use pinkle, purpoogle, and all those others cause I like them. XD Greenle. XDD
The calculations that blackle uses to estimate the savings of a black page on google are based on incorrect figures that estimate that 25% of the world still uses CRTs (it is likely lower than that). Even so, they neglect to include the differences between CRT and LCD display technology.
LCD displays use a constant back lighting to provide light to the panel. When an LCD monitor shows pure black, that's actually the point at which the monitor is working the hardest, closing all of those little doors to block the light from coming through. Even if the power to keep all the little doors closed was minimal the best case scenario is that Google changing to a black background would have zero effect on the 75% of the world that uses LCD displays and might actually cost a little MORE energy for them. So it might slightly decrease power consumption to 25% of the world, while increasing power consumption of over 75%.
Blackle was a marketing stunt by its creators, to divert traffic from google and generate income from the ads each time people searched their site.
Sorry Justin I didn't know that. I thought that Blackle was a good site. I guess I'll stick to Google again
YES! I agree! I was thinking about this the other day and I was going to make a thread on it but never got to it. I would suggest changing the whole skin of the forum to black/a darker color to help save energy and the Earth.
Nevermind, then. =,[
