I just noticed the new background while i was on safari's top sites thing, and i immediately came here to see it in full view. i think its really nice it gives the site more depth with the night-sky type BG. although it could be redone, it looks really low quality.

Ah yeah now i look closer the quality does look a bit off, but wouldn't upscaling the quality slow down the site download times?

the quality is something we try to ignore when it comes to the background. i mean that as in we dont need some uber hardcore ace quality and mostly its to speed up the site. this is actually an older background we used a while ago. anyway, it either stays with the quality now or it goes. anyway visitors arnt going to be staring at the background for hours on end. hopefully the posts in the forums will capture their attention.

The quality is not the best for a couple of reasons, the original wallpaper is only 1600x1200, so I needed to stretch it out a bit so it doesn't tile on people's screens. And second, it's because the original quality would make it over 2MB in size tongue, so I compressed it down
