I'm just curious, I couldn't find much online in the way of pre-made ones, so I made my own background and leaderboard instead.

Do many people use them or is in not something you bother with?

And sorry if this is in the wrong place, I'm new to the forums

I update mine from time to time if I feel like it or if I see something cool I want to use, and usually I have to either find a background close to the 2000x1000 dimensions or just find a pre-made, the latter of which I rarely do since some basic photo editing can easily produce a 2000x1000 image to use.

I made one when I started using the forums. It's a background from the Endless Night short directed by Sayo Yamamoto.

When I had premium like 3-4 years ago what I use to do was just google search "space tile" and I think if the image is small for a background it'll just repeat itself. I think it looks cool.

Here's an example of what I mean by "space tile"

I do. Just to make my page more colorful.
Posted 6/10/17 , edited 6/11/17
I usually put my background black.
Posted 6/10/17 , edited 6/11/17
No. I may put a background eventually, but as of right now I'm too lazy to look for one.

I don't, but it's mostly because I'm a computer illiterate who lacks even the knowledge to do that, and I'm too lazy to figure it out.

EDIT: Also, looking at previous answers in the thread, it seems I would need to be a premium member to have one. I guess it's a good thing I didn't waste time looking for it.

EDIT 2: I like your background, though. Is it the girl from SHELTER?

Yep, I use backgrounds. They change occasionally. Sometimes it's a repetitive pattern like origami or traditional Japanese textiles. Sometimes I create my own by combining texture and manga.

I prefer a background over blank space. The 1 I have was found online somewhere (Deviant Art for the header, 4chan or the milder aspect of Sankaku Complex website for the side bars). My wife and 1 CR member (Mystic17, left over 1 yr ago) helped me set it up. I refresh the content every other leap year.

I suppose that would be the easiest way to go about doing it, which would explain the lack of pre-made backgrounds available!

I wasn't aware it was a premium member thing to be honest with you i just assumed anyone could do it haha

Thank you, it is yea, i couldn't decide what I wanted as a background and then shelter started playing on one of my spotify playlists and i'd forgotten how much i love the song and video
