Darker dark mode

What's better than dark mode? An even darker dark mode!

We've updated our color scheme across the app to use darker darks, and a higher-contrast primary color on both themes. Overall, we've simplified our color palette which should increase consistency across the app.

We have lots of ideas on how to expand our theme system in the future to improve customizability, accessibility, and fun. Keep your eyes out for future changelogs by following us on Twitter (@Basedash).
