The GitLab forum looks like it’s running Discourse. I use Discourse in several other communities, and it’s great. However, I could not find a setting in forums.gitlab.com to set my interface to dark mode. For example on discuss.python.org, there’s a Theme selector under Preferences → Interface, but that option is not available on forums.gitlab.com.
Yep Gitlab disabled it probably so the forum colours matched Gitlabs colour scheme. I also requested it a while back via DM with one of the team. Sadly looks like we are stuck with being blinded and no choice as to the theme we want to use.
Thanks @iwalker - this is definitely unfortunate.
Of course, I set my GitLab scheme to dark mode there too, so actually this forum is doubly jarring!
