Nevertheless, it won't work in this way - there is no option to change the colors in an easy way without getting a total chaos, in case I am no genius in programming.

I'm not.
Unless you're using Mac OS 8, you have right click. Ctrl+Click = right click. Also, if you hit Cmd+Alt+Ctrl+8 you can invert the colors of your entire screen (a great trick to play on unattended Macs ).

Funnily enough, I find it harder to read black text on a white/light grey background.

Me, too. Much white on a site makes me feel blinded.

But white on black isn't the perfect thing, too. Black on something light grey or grey-blue would be nice. Just like the subsilver- style for PHP- boards.

But the background behind the forum could stay black...

I particularly like the blue text and black background on the topic lists.

While we're on the subject of appearances, will we get some more Trekish smilies?

I know you can change the color of text on your own posts

But I guess that really does not help though

So do I on a computer screen. When I read a book it doesn't bother me at all.

In case you are older (as many Trek Fans are) or you already have a restraint of eyesight, thenn you WILL notice it on every dark webpage with plain white text.

I for myself can only read here for some minutes, clear and sharp, but then the my eyes beginn to squeeze and I have afterimages when I look onto something other to ease this.

I don't want to critisize the style, but I hope for an option to change it in my profile, so I can read it without stressing my eyes.
Strange. I learned it is only the lens that is losing functionality due to ageing (presbyopy, cataract). I can assure you, the optic nerves are not stressed (as far as I'm informed)! Afterimages are normal, because your receptor molecules have to be recycled. What is it that brain and muscles should compensate? Can you look at the stars without feeling the same problems? Maybe it's rather a problem of focus, not of light. I'll read my physiology textbook now, maybe I find something...
