RFD apps - dark theme : why is some titlrs uses black fonts?

The black fonts makes it hatd to read in dark theme.

They arent always there...i think,
I have to start the apps, look at a thread, come back to the hot deal and then ... Thete is some thread titles in black?

Is there a way to.disabled this?
Or is that black font replaces the grayed moved thread font?

Inluding snapshot to show the problem...

From your description it sounds like read threads are showing up like that. I’ll see if I can get an update on that on Monday.

Thanks guys. Can you confirm that this only happens within a short period after changing the theme initially?

No, I've been using the dark mode for months now.
And it just happen recently.

At first, I also thought it was some READ flag or MOVED flag, but I can't find a way to reproduce it consistently.
If I open a thread and then come back to menu, it doesn't show as black.


If I wipe down the screen to refresh the post, then some thread are blacked.
Then if I wipe down again, it comes back to normal.

But I don't always get this behavior....

As mentioned before, I also thought this would be the case, but reading a thread and coming back doesn't mark the thrad as blak.

same as me on both android 7 and 8. it seems something to do with 'read messages' timestamp changing the colour. there really must not be that many people using the dark theme?

Still no progress on that issue?
Just came back from vacations and noticed that the problem is still there.

Since the black font on the dark background is almost impossible to read, an easy temporary solution would simply be to change the black font by something else ... more readable.

I'll have a mobile dev check in with this thread.

@superbigjay the issue is still being looked into. I'll keep checking with the mobile dev team and post an update as soon as I know more.
thanks for the follow up.
For now, I have switch back to the regular "white theme" as the black fonts are difficult to read.
