Last few hours Ximich spent developing a new awesome way to use pony and cats pictures as threads' background!
Congrats, now you can do that =)


of cause, it's not that easy as it sounds.

Things you need to now about this new feature
- in The Pit only
- to make a revolution and become a new Mayor, the difference between you and current Mayor should be 10 replies at least
- top user with more than 15 posts in a thread become a Mayor

Superpower
- change background (upload pictures with a hight resolution)











- change "like/dislike" text

- create a special message (custom Mayor statement)

- we started with a to indicate Mayors, but now you can select another smile to appear near your avatar


What if you are a superstar and already have more than one thread to rule? In Forum Profiles you have a special tab for threads you own =)


It's just a beginning, feel free to suggest "superpower" for Mayers!

waiting for your crazy ideas about Mayor's superpowers =)

Update for everyone. I've been playing with a few different pic sizes and as long as you maintain the 16:9 aspect ration then your picture should look alright in the background. I have only tested this with 1920x1080 and 1280x720 but it at least seems sound in principal.

You can do everything something with football thread. It's yours!

Real talk it's a fun idea but people need the opportunity to have a neutral background for those of us who post at work or whatever

If you think something is broken, report a problem.


But I still don't get it. Or really like it. Which sucks when someone put time/effort into making it

I like this idea but it's not really fair because ETR has no life and the rest of us do so we will never get to be Mayor
#20
I actually love this because I'm a top poster in the anime thread and I've gone mad with power

ewwwww

I did a test background pic in the football thread and you cant delete it apparently


EDIT: chose a 48x48 pic (ie, tiny) too so it wouldnt be massive if it couldnt be deleted.

That went well

This is totally going to get abused. Or if you look at the football thread, it's already been abused.

And so have my eyes.
I have nothing important to say

Thanks for report, fixed. Now you can delete background.

I actually love this change btw

But I do think it'll only really be useful in the only threads


Still love it tho. One of the first changes I actually really like other than larger avatars

Can we get like an option in the settings/new user cp to override the custom backgrounds with the standard black background (or white or w/e it is on classic)?

I know a lot of people browsing at work don't want to click on a thread only to have a giant meme appear on the sides of the screen. I also just prefer the cleaner black look of the standard background.

Got it working and done the football thread But there's a problem with different screen resolutions and/or people on mobile in that some can't see it (possibly to do with the type of pic it is ). Dunno how or if that's solvable, but thought I'd let you know anyway

#36
guys, any decent ideas about what else we should make cusomizable for thread mayors?
#38
Quote by EndTheRapture51
we should be able to give others nicknames


lol NO way
#39
If you're gonna give the option to turn off backgrounds, why not just let everyone have their own custom background?

No one will keep what someone else chooses for them (apart from my awesome Jol one obvz), so everyone will just have it turned off
