If you have firefox, you can download the Stylish extension and then install my new Dark slickdeals style here. There is a before and after image there, but I'll post them here just to give people a heads up of what it looks like.
Note: I did not edit anything concerning ad placement and display, because I don't see them to begin with. If enough people make a request, I'll figure out how to darken them as well.
As of now, it works well with the main page, and the forums, but not really for the other pages (coupons, price search, ratings). Also, my style will work with any of the three slickdeals styles, although I designed it to overlay the "hybrid" style specifically (it's the default style at slickdeals).
Any suggestions are welcome. It's a WIP, and there's a few minor things I'll be changing in the immediate future, so either stay tuned, or check stylish every once in a while.
One bug that I found.. when selecting from polls.. the text doesn't show up.. you have to highlight it.
So far the list of stuff for me to fix (hopefully when I get home from work?):
1) text color in polls
3) search boxes
4) forum rank bars
5) pretty much all of the vb drop-down boxes ("search this thread" for example)
6) do something about the apparel/coupons/price search/etc pages
7) those two tiny little square images at the bottom corners of the site banner (how'd I miss that)
Problem: I updated a bunch of stuff, but userstyles.org won't let me to upload a CSS script that's greater than 65k characters.
The massive number of characters stems from my use of inline images. I feel that they're the best option for overwriting site images, since it requires no external hosting. The down side to using them is that they make your CSS script very large.
Until userstyles.org increases their character limit (and I have no clue if this will ever happen), I'm going to simply maintain the style here, in the form of a txt attatchment.
To change the style manually:
-find "Dark slickdeals.net", highlight it, click Edit
-click somewhere in the text editor, select all (CTRL-A), delete
-paste the contents of the .txt attatchment (CTRL-C, CTRL-V)
And it should work. If it gets screwed up somehow, just re-load the old style script from userstyles.org.
