Looking through what everyone has said, it may be better to keep our original theme. I am glad that you're giving the option based on preference. The dark theme, imo, is easier on the eyes, but breaks too many colors throughout the overall site. I prefer the site to be readable without having to jump through thread after thread to change the different colors. Also, having a white background gives people a sort of "canvas." It makes it easier to colorize templates without having it clash too much with the sites background.
