People have gotten too used to light mode for them to remove it now

The theme picker is in development.

(I assume dark mode is not there because they're planning on adding it later…)

I feel like they should put it on a different menu because it looks a bit out of place…
Gotta admit though, that's a great way to preview the theme.

i would imagine they would've made it behave more like turbowarp's dark/light mode switcher, but, that'll work after some tweaking with a userstyle

Not yet. The linked pull request is in draft stage, so we'll have to wait a bit for an ST dev to accept the changes ;)

It looks pretty cool too, maybe just possibly we could hold shift when opening the menu to acess the April fools themes?
I actually really like the 90s theme, it just appeals to me for some reason

I still feel it’s a little unfair to the other 2 expansions in lab that have been there for longer and are still not at all being mentioned

The change to the menu bar color is very interesting – it makes sense that they want to improve text contrast, but I would expect a darker shade of blue instead.

Based on the code comments in the PR, it does seem like there will be a dark mode option later:
// Dark mode is not yet supported
// const prefersDarkQuery = '(prefers-color-scheme: dark)';
const prefersHighContrastQuery = '(prefers-contrast: more)';
// Dark mode isn't enabled yet
const isValidTheme = theme => [DEFAULT_THEME, HIGH_CONTRAST_THEME].includes(theme);

The ST seems to be planning on releasing high contrast block colors at the end of June, according to a Scratch translator (apparently the ST sends feature announcements to translators in advance): [src]


I've also added this info to the OP, along with some other updates.

Personally, I like the new block colors a whole lot more than the old ones since they are much easier to see and read. I'm glad that the ST has been taking accessibility seriously lately.



Help improve the Advanced Topics (Really!)
Before you create a topic:
Always search for duplicates or other similar topics before making an umbrella topic, e.g., “The Mac Topic”.
  • Is it about something you are planning on making but haven't made yet? If so, please wait to post until you have created a working prototype. This is a key factor to keeping the ATs as clean as possible.
  • The ATs aren't technical support. It is perfectly valid to ask questions about things related to programming, but not issues with external websites, apps, or devices. Most sites have their own support system; try asking there!
  • Is it related to something you are making in Scratch? (This includes OSes and other Scratch projects) If so, please post in Collaboration, Show and Tell, or another similar forum.
  • Is your topic questionably “advanced”? Try browsing the other forums to see if your topic fits better in one of those.
  • Issues with Scratch itself should be put in Bugs and Glitches.
Before you post: Is what you're posting likely to start an argument or derail the thread (e.g., browsers, operating systems)? If so, please re-think your post!

The Scratch Team are a funny bunch. They make the text nearly impossible to read and brighten the block colours for Scratch 3, then give you an option to amp up the colour contrast!

Literally just increase the text size a bit and darken the colours a bit and everyone would be happy; no need to make the blocks look like chalk candy for accessibility points.
