I wanted to change the confluence theme to dark, since I am reading a lot, it's becoming unbearable with the white background.
I found these steps:
really? just to change a theme?? I need to talk to my administrator to change the background color of the page??? is this a joke????

uh yeah, just like google! To have a dark theme on gmail i've mailed gmail admin and asked to change the theme for me.... or use a client side script... really? this is the official response?
So no, the user theme is not supported. You can try to workaround this with 3rd parties browser plugins rather than load a custom, per-user defined css.
I was looking for the dark theme too
Correct, remember that Confluence is a shared web-service and it's intended to present a consistent interface to the users.
Yes, it has themes, but themes apply to the space and it's supposed to look the same to everyone.
If you want to take a personalised theme for Confluence, that's up to you and your browser. Confluence is like sites such as, um, google, bbc, microsoft etc - they present a consistent presentation layer and if you want to do it differently, you mostly get browser plugins to do it. Stylus and Stylish have personalised browser themes for most Atlassian stuff, Cloud and Server, and the browser marketplaces are well worth a look
(Note - I'm not saying dark themes are bad, I tend to prefer them for a lot of stuff, but hate them for large amounts of reading - books, letters, mail, etc - really always should be light. For me. My terminals and IDEs tend towards dark, Jira I don't bother to try because I swap between so many of them, and Confluence should be dark writing on a light background to make it easier for me to read)
Yes, you could raise an improvement request, but I would expect it to be closed as a duplicate of the existing ones.
Most Confluence competitors also don't have a dark mode, certainly not by default, as most people expect to read black on white documents.
