If there's a chance for me to get in on this, I'd love to smile dark mode on my Mac is one of my favorite features

The most noticeable issue I see so far, is that the thread icons suffer loss of quality on the dark background. It stands out to me because everything else seems pretty clean.
The flag icons look even better in dark mode. Perhaps a similar style for team logos would be appropriate?

The "Year" field in the Buyout Calculator has a black font (assuming an oversight since I don't see it anywhere else).

Looks pretty sharp overall!

I've changed my mind. And then I changed my mind again. I still like my screen white. With a little bit of toggle in it.

Adding to this, the two most “noticeable” team logos(at least for me using an iPhone) are the Caps because of the white space at the top where it says Washington in their logo and the islanders because it seems almost like the left and right edges are cropped off


Edit: for the islanders logo, I just checked and it looks the same(cropped) in light mode but because it’s a lighter logo it pops in dark where in light it’s mostly unnoticeable

This is fixed site wide with white stroke except for in the forums emojis, it was missed and will also be fixed

I just realized that some players on custom rosters are embossed left and some right. Is this intentional?
Not exactly related to dark mode, but it stands out more in dark.

What do you mean by embossed? The colour difference of the player rectangular box?

That displays whether the player shoots left or right.

One thing I noticed: the logos next to players whose contracts are unconfirmed don't stand out terribly well. I'm still okay with having the black circle, but maybe coloring the exclamation points white would help them stand out.

Also, when I try to delete an Armchair-GM team, the pop-up "are you sure" dialog box is still dark-on-dark.

Thank you. I wasn't aware of that, but it makes sense why they are different now.

That's actually theoretically fixed already, must be a cache issue, I'll force an update from our end
