I know quite a number of us are talented in making wallpapers, and simply enjoy making and sharing them with our fellow Scholars. In an effort to simply the "search" for Scholar-made wallpaper, as well as to showcase our wallpaper/desktop talents, I thought I'd make a sticky for the forum, where you may post your wallpapers to your hearts content.
Please, when you are posting wallpapers in this thread, try to follow a few basic rules:
Only your own work. Please don't post the work of other Scholars, or cool wallpapers you found on the web. If you have a site to suggest, please PM me and I will add it to a list inside this post.
Please post a thumbnail of the wallpaper, and not the full size image. This means instead of using the img tag on an image that's 1024x768, use it on a smaller, preview image (preferably no wider than 600 pixels). This will make the thread easier to load for our dial up members, and easier to view.
Please make sure that you offer a link to your wallpaper files, and check that those links are working periodically, fixing them if they aren't. I recommend that if you decide to put them together in a zipped package, use the .zip format, which is more common to the average computer than .rar.
Images should, as always, comply with the general SoSZ rules when posted. If the image is not work safe (violent, sexual, etc), do NOT post a preview; instead, link to it with an appropriate disclaimer.
Please note: You may still post your wallpapers in your own art threads. I simply encourage you to place them here as well!
If you have any questions, please just PM me. Also, for a sample post, please look below (where I've linked a wallpaper of my own.)
