Questions tagged [dark-mode]

Dark Mode is a pathway to many UI elements that some would consider unnatural. Dark Mode is currently only supported on Stack Overflow (English as well as the other languages) and questions about it are better asked on the site's own meta. Questions about the possibility, feasibility, or schedule of rolling out Dark Mode elsewhere on the network are acceptable here on Meta Stack Exchange.
