Update: We're past the annpuncement stage npw. You can still vote,but essentially I take it that no one opposes to monthly changes or how I'm doing the background.

Update 2: I realised two things. Textures with transparent parts cannot be used. They look weird. Further, darker textures won't work well because all our text is black and it'll be hard to read. Sorry, Fred, that kinda strikes out your top two. So keep this in mind when suggesting. Also, I'll accept painted blocks.

You might notice the forum looks different (maybe ghastly, even). Don't worry, nothing's permanent. I like malachite, so I used that as a test. Basically I figured out how to efficiently change the background to one of SC's texture.

So, here's some questions.

How often do you want it changed? I was thinking once a month, to keep the forum looking fresh. It takes me 5 minutes plus minus to fix it up, so it's not too much trouble.
The second is a bigger question. What texture do you want? I don't really know what's the most favourite block texture, but just leave a comment (preferably listing your top 10) and by referencing against other people's comments, I can figure out what to use next.

Further, the texture might look a bit different. Basically I took a screenshot in-game (so the texture is larger), then adjusted the brightness in my photo-editor after precisely cutting out the texture (no seams, I have this down perfectly). I don't really want to ask for help to do this, because it's a lot easier for me to account for uploading the pic to imgur, then changing it in admin. But yeah, if the texture is slightly brighter/darker, no worries.

Update: I'm also deciding on a permanent top banner. What I have is very temporary. Lefora has no hints as to what the image size should be, and it looks clipped on mobile but OK on computers. The size I'm using is 160 x 256 (the size the previous wood texture was), so if you want to design something, use that and post it here. Make sure it's hosted on a site like imgur and the link is a DIRECT image link (like: http://i.imgur.com/Qrh5fwq.jpg). If you don't have an account anywhere to host it, just let me know and I'll upload it myself.

That's all for another exciting episode on: Random Changes on the Survivalcraft Forum that Won't Matter

1) Leaves texture
2) Cobblestone
3) Spruce wood texture
4) Stone bricks
5) Planks
6) Birch wood texture
7) Solid Malachite Block
8) Iron ore texture
9) Gravel
10) Limestone

These are my top ten texture looks. I think changing it once a month sounds great.

Please if you can,
Make the wire through hole block better if it looks like the colored clay black & white.
I mean like make the "brick wthb" looks like a color white clay and "semiconductor wthb" looks like a color black clay.

Also the diamond block to be a good flooring tiles.. Uhmm... Also the door..
Just prioritize the wire through hole block, it's up to you if you want to add more..
Thanks a lot in advance :) gonna use it in my current project.

I currently using the fanver 1.29 almost, just the wire through hole block was my problem.
I'll be so thankful if you can fix it for me. ^_^
Thanks a lot once again!

omg lefora, just tried creating one for banner testing purposes and http://www.lefora.com/portal/createcommunity they say forum creation at lafora is currently unavaliable, they the procide to direct you to a different free forum site... yep, lafora isn't ever going anywhere and will probably is not even going to be staying up much longer, it probably cant keep its already made forums up much longer since the add revenue on forums that... well, aren't used, is nothing, and they can't keep them up forever, and this will eventually get this forum, well deleted, not because it isn't used but it is the only one really used and even then has low traffic. Then I proceed to create an account for the other site and the site I asked for isn't even letting me connect. I've already verified my account and all that but even then I doubt it would let me test a lafora themed site for the banner I was going to create. You guys really should consider moving the forum at this point, I put very little effort in creating mine just to prove a point and, well, it is hosted freely, lightweight, ad free, simple, and ... well working. http://sc-forum.is-great.org/index.php Think about it. Even a basic SMF forum would be great!

@seph This is officially 'endorsed' by Kaalus and it has been here since forever (I found members birthed in 2012 for some reason). I don't think a move is anticipated.

@beboy no worries.
