    As much as I think things probably won't be updated or fixed (because of the upcoming new forums with Curse), just discovered this when trying to set up two-factor authentication in the dark theme.


    This made it hard/impossible for the scanner to read the QR code. I couldn't be bothered typing the code out, so I just Chrome-Developer-Settingized it into having a white background and 30px padding :p

    It'd be nice if it could be given a proper background however, QR codes (if I remember correctly) are meant to have a minimum of 20 px of padding and have a sharply contrasting colour, like white.

    (hope the obfuscation on the QR code and text is enough to make it unusable :p )

    that's readably.. sort of.. if you sit up straight and look down on it a little

    My point was that my tablet couldn't pick the QR code up. The text isn't that nice either, but I agree it's readable.

    I can't get the thing to work. I scan the code, my phone gives me a verificatino number. i enter that (on time), but the forum keeps saying it cant validate the number

    @Captainnana might know something about it, I really have no idea about that stuff :p

    I found what the problem was: The time on my phone was 10 minutes off from the time used by this forum
