    Normally a website's background goes bright colors.Why BHW chooses Black? It hard for my eyes to get used to it.

    did you really post this in HIRE A FREELANCER ?
    you do not need to pay someone to change a BHW theme to white
    I use White one.
    @sam.hunt0710 Good explanation.

    I'm one of the fabled "One's who went black and actually came back". A lot of BST threads are made for the black BG and are unreadable with the white template. Ohhhhh well.

    Yeah the black version hurt My eyes too and I also use the white version but when you switch you Will notice that many links or for example sale threads are optimized for the black version so sometimes it can look a bit odd. But for me its ok :)

    Black is way easier on your eyes than white

    Because BLACK hat world.

    Hey, but I understand that some people really do suffer from eye strain when viewing light text against dark backgrounds. The site owner knows this as well, which is why a light version exists.
