Greetings everyone,
We are contemplating enabling a new feature here on the forums: The ability to change your background to either a new color or an image!
Posted Image
I know you are all probably excited already, but wait, there's more! Instead of just telling you about it, how about we show it to you?!
- iScending
Solid color background (Keeping it real yo)
- Tuccy
Tiled small image
- Ectar
One large image
As mentioned, this is still in the works and we have not yet made a decision on when or if this will be enabled to the community, but hopefully this will generate some buzz (as the cool kids say) and get your happiness level up!
Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated!

Frills... and all it does is clutter the screen.. not wanted when reading/writing textual information.

When can we have proper functionality?

Searching?
Edting Formating?

You can pick whatever you want, as long as it follows forum rules and the terms of use.

Soon™! Last I heard is that a forum patch is almost ready to be deployed and should (knock on wood!) fix this, and other issues.

ye...i'm sorry but i don't belive that ^^ it's not that i don't belive you, but you know...
would be nice to have the forum fixes first, handle the problems before you generate new ones ;)


For me it would be enough to have your calendar images as a background, you could just take your favorite tank and its fine.

This is one of the things we are considering before we release it to the community. Not hiring more staff, but how we can make sure it's not abused :p. Most likely it will be dealt with as we do with the forum avatars, so we will be relying on the community / moderators to let us know if anyone takes it in a bad direction.

I don't give a small furry rodent's tiny bum.
Fix the bugs first...
.
.
.
First report of "broken forums", 17th of july.
Instead of making up "new interesting idea's", stop insulting us and fix your damned mess first...
.
.
More then 4 months since the stats of certain premium tanks have been missing/broken. (Just another example of your laziness (WG, I dunno which department is responsible so I'll leave it at "WG in general")
.
.
Beyond rediculous...
.
.
P.S. A reminder what those bugs are:
.
- not being able to search your own or another person's posts
- not being able to edit posts without messing up the layout of the post
- still able to select red text (which results in bans)
- still able to select bigger fonts (which results in bans)
P.P.S. I realize you moderators and community managers are not responsible, you are just messengers.

Still can't quote posts with emoticons in them.

Forum still randomly tells you you can't use that image extension for no apparent reason.
