Community wallpaper start point

Ok so I had this crazy idea that we should create a community wallpaper, what we do is we create a simple background and upload as a .png then people can take it and edit it how they want! The only rule is that you need to post what you managed to do with it then we can have a collection of community wallpapers for users to browse through.


This is what I say should be a starting point. Lets see what happens!

Re: Community wallpaper start point

Steve ... you really might consider going over to the fedora website and joining up with the fedora art group. You've got the skills certainly.

One caveat, though. do not mention my name. I'm about as popular over there as a porcupine in a condom boutique. I'm not exactly sure when and where the relationship went south, but I suspect if you look up "Passive-aggressive hate-fest" in the encyclopaedia fedorica, you'll see an illustration there of a triptych with our lovely Mo', the art group, and me in respective panes. <....>

I'm about as welcome, myself..

I do believe my downfall was when I started referring to "Beefy Miracle" as the "Cheesy Porn" release.

As wallpaper goes, I like grey, the neutral background is not too busy and allows me to focus on graphic design and production.

Uhm ... Yeah. That would do it. <....>

I suspect, however, that I was already long blackballed by then, but ... this one didn't help a helluvalot either.

That is a very nice image! sometimes as hard as you may try you can never beat a nice simple wallpaper.

Thanks for the inspiration BBQDave!

What do you think Dan? Abit more simplicity seems to go a long way!
