For those of us who are visually challenged; a dark coloured website theme would be nice. I am finding it really hard to look at the website now without getting a full on headache because of all the white so would be nice to have a choice. 

Vote if you think this would be a nice addition to MDL. :)

To me the look of MDL is part of its charm...

I'll add a vote for this. I have bad eyesight too, and the white background is making things difficult to read. On mobile, it makes it even harder to read.

Juniko: The look is not the problem. The new design is great. Its the colour scheme. Before the the update while not ideal it was manageable, but now it really isn't at all. So much white on websites like this has adverse affects on a lot of those with vision problems including myself. I have a light sensitivity & struggle with brightness. So much white unfortunately gives me a headache & makes it hard for me to read anything clearly which means I cannot browse MDL comfortably.

Just a temporary solution for people like you that have vision problems: it seems a lot of people have such problems, so there are apps that fix it. If you google "how make websites dark" for example, you'll find a few solutions. For example, here's a google chrome extension that makes websites dark. Or if you're on a mac, you can use the ctrl + cmd + option + 8 shortcut to invert colors (unless you're on mavericks, for which it's cmd + option + f5)

Thanks. The extension helps a fair bit for the laptop Not perfect since it doesn't work on my phone which I use a lot to browse MDL but it's better than nothing.

lol i'm on dilemma xD
I think a darker theme would be good to used bcs sometime i browse the page at night (like now) and my sister is sleeping like right next to me, and i know it might bother her somehow
but this blue-ish theme is sooo MDL it would be weird if it was changed :(
nevertheless I gave this a vote lolol

I would vote for this but I have no points.
I want to help fellow MDLs. This is just a small change that would make a big difference for some people.
Let's trying sharing this, so more people vote and it gets implemented.
The would not change the white theme, just introduce a new one that is darker.
