Like browsing MeFi in a shrouded theater

A lot of people have complained about FanFare's professional white background. Well, DRUNK WITH POWER after somehow kludging together a successful CSS theme for /r/MetaFilter with zero experience, I decided to try my hand at giving our new subsite a makeover, too -- the layout is fine, but that glaring white is painful to read in a darkened teevee room. Inspired by the original soothing dark blue color scheme from film/TV review aggregator Metacritic (which discarded it for an unpopular redesign years ago), I put together a complete FanFare theme (screenshot*) that adjusts not just the background and text, but stuff like visited links, link hovering, the pop-up video button and lightbox, posting page notes, live preview area, and the sidebar and Deck ad box. You can install it in Firefox (with Greasemonkey or Stylish), Chrome (with Stylish or Blank Canvas Script Handler), and jailbroken iOS (with Userscript Loader, using this URL) -- it's tested and working properly on all three.

Always Professional

Is there a way to maintain the professional white background "plain" theme when not logged in? The solution can be as kludge-y as necessary if anyone wants to explain how I can do this myself; I need it to work on literally one computer.

Look, you're really cute, but I can't understand what you're saying...

"Looks like you're searching for an exact phrase. The local search doesn't do that so well. Be sure to try your search for "_____" at Google if you don't find what you're looking for here." Perhaps it's just my colorblind eyes, but I can't see anything other than the "deep space nine" link in the notice above my search results. Is there any chance the Big Dark Bar of Highlighting could be changed to a different color so the text stands out more effectively? Thank you!

The background of MeFi Projects sings to me

Is there any way to make the background color of one page apply to the others? Or different themes beyond default and plain? [more inside]

Starry Eyed Surprise

About those stars some people get... pointless tiny little request, but could those be given a transparent canvas so they show up nicey nice across themes? Currently when viewing with the white background they show up as a star-in-a-block. Or you could even render them as Unicode entities so they could be given the ol' CSS one-two punch and you wouldn't have to get clever with graphics.

Background color and info in RSS ponies

QuickTwoPonyRequest: [1] Can a background color for alternating comment s be used to aid readability? [2] Can tags, category and poster information be added to the two RSS feeds?

Can we get another background for AskMe?

COLOR THEORY CRYBABYFILTER: I love the blue and grey of metafilter, but find the green of AskMefi to overwhelm me, and in kind of a swampy pea green soup way where I can feel ill if I read it too long. Is it possible to offer another background color, similar to the white screen you can get in your preferences when the Metafilter blue gets similarly distracting? I love AskMefi but that green really gets overwhelming at points.
