Why is there such opposition to dark - or even darkish gray?Anything could potentially go well with either the light or dark design. If it is designed well enough to not have issues with navigation and displaying important items on it, you could even have most business sites run on dark themes.
Well, two major drum lesson websites are dark. I don't really see the big turn-off for my project.Considering how much "Dark Mode" is becoming popular I don't think you could go wrong with it being default so long as you have a light theme alternative. The Dark themes no matter the forum for me are much easier on my eyes and much less "in my face".
