[Userstyle] Transparent theme for forums

Yup. WK is srs bsns so no flimsy flamsy distracting transparency needed. The dark theme is great

Looks good! I’m thinking I need to tweek my colours and transparency a bit more since some things blend too much… I’m going to be here all week messing around with this stuff…

Nice, I like the background. Makes sense that you might need to edit some things, though, as I made it with a specific background in mind.

Well, there was an attempt.


Took care of all the bugs I had found over the past month or two, so if they’ve been bothering anyone you might want to update

This is what I finally did with it. : D

Although, I’d really like to adjust the top bar a bit (change the text colour for WaniKani Community and the [Userstyle] thread title… maybe even make that Community banner just as clear (and dark) as the rest of the top (the same) instead of the extra oval. Tried looking through the code, but it was really long! I found some colour specific stuff waaaaaaaaaaaaay at the bottom (page specific section)… however I’m not quite sure what all of the elements are (that I’m hoping to update).

Love that you went with the Lifetime purple, @Kumirei for the notification bubbles. : D Totally works with the background I’ve chosen. Oh yeah, and our user names… I’d need to change that colour, too. (I’m thinking those titles + names also the same purple. That’ll do it for me. : D )

See my screen below:

Hey, when I first added this style, I still had tenderwaffle’s grey (WK classic) userstyle on, and it made a similar colour out of mine. Have you turned it off? I’m just curious. ^^

I love this! I tried doing one but just ended up turning the entire background into a blob.
Curse me and my dumb brain.

So, for this reason I’m showing you below, I’d also like to adjust the transparency of the text entry box… White text on white text when replying to something in a longer thread makes it a bit difficult…

I think I’d also like to change all the grey bubbles (number of new posts) to the same purple as my Lessons/Reviews and Notifications, too… @Kumirei , would it be possible to list what/where certain elements are in the code, so I can fiddle with it? ^^ Thanks in advance! [EDIT: Links too…]

@Cassykins if you’d like it as-is, I searched Dark Sailor Moon Background and it was one of the first wallpapers that popped up. I knew it existed because I’ve seen it before, looking for wallpapers for my phone and just in general appreciating Sailor Moon things (and finding new backgrounds for my Windows 7 hard drive… I may have this saved over there, for all I remember… even though I’m using a Capaldi Doctor Who one at the moment.) BG image here. Literally the first one when I searched again. It’s cool to see on the main forum page too, as you get either Saturn or Pluto depending on how you scroll…

Which is something fun that I wasn’t expecting. I had mis-remembered this being a background of Saturn on the right-hand side. HAH! Only her glaive blade is. *shrugs* But it worked out anyway, so I’m down with it. Thanks for the compliment! ^^;

Oh that look great! I’ll see if I can’t add a few options on the userstyle’s page this evening. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while anyway. I also have a few bugs that just keep coming back with updates, so I suppose I can take care of those as well.


I mainly forum at work computer, so yeah, I don’t currently have it active.

Awesome, thanks!

And one other thing I noticed last night after my last screenshots in here, was that nested quotes get whiter and whiter… To be able to see white text shouldn’t they get blacker and blacker instead? (A black/dark grey transparency, rather than white?)

Anyway, your work is beautiful! I intend to use it as my night theme, when the sun has gone down (I have poor lighting in my apartment, and have spent many a night burning my eyes out even with the classic WK grey by Tenderwaffles). Not sure if I’ll use that in daytime to “focus” or just keep your lovely theme up. : D

Thank you again! ~<3

Sorry @AnimeCanuck I had completely forgotten about my promise to make options. Added some now while I was updating it anyways. Let me know what the options don’t catch and what they do catch but shouldn’t; I just changed the default values of related groups of elements, so it’s going to start off crude.

Everyone else: the theme is now updated to fix what was broken in recent forum updates.

Saw this and thought it was awesome so I gave it a try.

Everything was going great until I noticed some of the transparency flickering (if I refresh it a few times it comes back). I thought it was because I meddled with something I shouldn’t have while changing the background and some colors. But when I re-installed it, without even touching anything yet, it still did the same thing.


But overall, I really do love the theme and I hope you can fix it!

Thank you!

Thanks! I don’t use it myself anymore, since I’m working on the v2, so for a while I’m relying on reports to catch bugs. I see that there have been some changes since I last updated and that I do indeed have a few things to fix. However, it seems to me that you must have two version installed and active, because I see some styling in the images to the right (except for the second row which is in the wrong order) that’s just not in the code anymore. The flickering indicates to me that you have two styles in conflict, the left (ex. row 2) is the updated version in which I have fixed the things on the right. Check both your userstyle extension and your script handler.

I just published updates to the things on the left.

Chrome user? This might help.

If this doesn’t help, then maybe disabling “Accelerated 2D canvas” will.


Just wanted to say thank you and share my love for this theme (and a screenshot).


Really loving it so far!


Ooh, that looks great! I love seeing which backgrounds people use with it (✿◠‿◠)
I’ll probably release v2 this summer.


Looking forward to it!

I tried another background at first but that didn’t work out at all. XD
This one’s nicer on the eyes anyways. The forum looks so much more stylish now!
