After many long years, the thrilling dark mode for Stack Overflow has just been released! However, it's not everywhere and this cryptic paragraph is all we have regarding that decision:
For now, we have no plans to bring dark mode to the many sites across the Stack Exchange network. Many of the designs on our sites have been around long enough that converting them to dark mode would require redoing the artwork completely. We would prefer to avoid giving anyone across our network a substandard experience and we don’t want to change those elements without the input of these communities.
Now, I'm not asking this on Stack Exchange Meta, because it makes sense to me for most other flavors of SE, eg Seasoned Advice for cooking. They have their own cover artwork and aesthetic, and the majority of users likely haven't developed a taste (pun intended) for dark modes.
However, as far as I can see, our layout is the same as SO's and shouldn't require re-working anything. And I can only imagine that as many people would welcome the feature here as did on SO.
Curious to hear what, if anything, is keeping Code Golf moderators from pulling the UI changes here. If nothing else, the internal 'politics' of SE are starting to intrigue me; I never realized the different communities were so fractured and independent!
Note: Would normally show some evidence of research and effort, but I didn't know where to start looking for answers with this one. Also, am unclear on whether this falls within the scope of questions here or whether it's better warranted elsewhere. Please do let me know!
