Discussions Improvement Suggestions

It’s a good idea to get some images for the profile & background banner, to personalize this place. The Discussions Guidelines, located at /d/g, also need to be personalized. I can help with selecting images if needed, & I can suggest specific Guidelines that I have found helpful if anyone wants, or link people to the Guidelines that other larger, successful Wikis have used to great effect.

Those are actually secondary however. What’s most important is Discussions Categories; at least five are usually good, to help organize content in the same way Forum Boards do. A Category for each book, or perhaps instead for Characters, Magic, Theories, & Places would be good. Either way, a fifth category dedicated to Wiki-Improvement would also be good. In the end the decision falls to the Admins however, these are just suggestions.

How does the current one look? It’s a rotated version of the image below:

Oh, I was actually working on another image. I just sent in a photoshop request to change up an image. Would you be ok with the below image if the gold was instead an extension of the central background? (view the full thing by clicking)

Hey Wyvern. That image fell out, because the people I asked to crop it weren’t able to sadly. However, the new Headers could use a background image, & that might work there. Want to try it in ThemeDesigner?

I've tried uploading it but I'm getting a message saying "incorrect file size". The file is 467 KB and Theme Designer seemingly limits me to 300.

Have you tried TinyPng? It will compress the image within the acceptable parameters.
