Please submit Personal Created Backgrounds, Icons and Banners here.

All must be MH or MHWikiForum related and with the understanding that they will be used at the sole discretion of the MHWikiForum for THIS SITE ONLY!

Icons should be kept at a 30x30 pixel format and though animation is not required is encouraged.

Backgrounds are suggested at a 1024 pixel width for this site though some variation is acceptable. Smaller ones are fine and will be repeated though may be adjusted when added to forum.

Banners are suggested at 767x215 format for the forum though again some slight variation is acceptable. Again animation is preferred but not necessary.

We encourage all forum members to participate, be creative and support the forum to the best of their ability regardless of their skill level and thank you everyone no matter how much or what they are able to do!

By Icons, do you mean the Avatars that are selected from the gallery?

Hmm... I've got ideas for all three. I hope they come out correctly. The idea I have for a background will be the trickiest one.
Preferred height for backgrounds?

I've seen the icons for the top of the forum, i.e. the buttons like Forum, F.A.Q, Gallery etc

I thought that these were personally a little larger than should be, so I downloaded them and resized them to 50% of their original size... I have included them in this post...

The resized buttons:
 

These are just resized, lemme know what you guys think
They will fit on one line across the forum like the old setup - I have tested their size in a standard post and to me don't look bad...

Thanks Law, the reason for the buttons being a bit large though is to accomidate some screens and to make them more easily readable on several different devices, that is also why they are not restricted to one single row anymore. The font and size were tested on several devices to make sure it could still be read without having to be constantly resized acrossed devices. I know it's not a great solution for everyone but it's what works for the largest number of users and devices.

Meta: as far as background hight, stick with the 1024 width and a compatable height on your own computer that you think works well... Most of the formating are guidlines. I may have to make adjustments if anything submited is used (but will try not to) and the system may make adjustments automatically as well.

Main thing is I would Like to have Forum Member submited content we can use over what some random stuff we find on the internet. Same with armor and outfit pictures. If anyone has a good picture to submit please add it to the gallery section!

The gallery section is a great place to add your own personal MH armor/weapon and play pictures!

That's pretty nice!

The font color and font blending needs to be improved, in my opinion.

Thanks! I'll see what I can do about the font. It bothers me too haha

I changed the colour of the font and darkened the drop shadow so that the text  pops off of the background more

You might have to use more than simply photoshop's layer blending options on the font, but it looks pretty good

I've been working on a background. The tiling in the background always bothered me because it wasn't seamless. For my background I tried going for something that looked like a bunch of aptonoth walking across the sand

No need for tiling with a 1080p image...

Vort is correct. We can actually do a "Full Screen" background, there are some problems however.

1: image size
2: screen format being viewed on
3: Site memory

I can fit any image to full screen but not all smaller images look right being blown up to fit. Different computer monitors are going to display the background differently. I try to test a lot of the stuff on my widescreen home computer, HD TV, 3DS, Vita, SmartPhone, and old work computer monitor to see what looks the best across all varieties of devices, so chances are even if it doesn't look great to you it's probably the best image for all users not just one person. Also keep in mind that some images are just too high quality and the forum can't handle it, nore can some computers. This causes the whole site for some users not to work correctly.

Also a word of advice.. Though Light backgrounds look nice.. Depending on what it is they do not always work best for the forum. For one thing it bleeds through the transparent background more and two it can be more distracting overall. We do want the background to be seen that's part of the reason for the slight trasparent backing but we don't want it to overpower what we are seing either.

The current background is a good example. It's a good picture to show off the Tonfa's but you can look and see the contrast where the light and dark portions of the picture meet. Since the current background is only temporary it's fine for now but a longer term background or one that was more sectioned.. it wouldn't look good at all.

Just a few things to think about.

I know that large images are an issue on some old computers.

Which is why a bit of programming on forumotion's side could just set backgrounds not to load on screens that can't even see them...(Or allow multiple depending on screen resolution...)

alas, good UI is not forumotion's forté, this is mainly because it's hard to make a forum-generator website super customizable without too many issues.

^Yup.. I would rather everyone see the background if they can so turning it off on computers that can't handle it wouldn't be a choice I like.. basically most devices would only have a black background then.. And keep in mind "FREE" website here.. If it were our own domain and server and we paid for it, we could pretty much do what we want with programing, but for now.. Limitations are a must.

So though it may not look as good as we would all like, I am fine for now with the lower resolution.. I can look into a few more option however on the next one I set and see what all is possible, though in the end it will still be with limitations and with what works best across a majority of devices.

Until then however.. SUBMIT STUFF! and we'll work with it! ;)

I made this BG quickly them coz i got bored, its nothing special but feel free to use.
I'm also hapy to switch around the monster icons if you want other monsters shown (tbh I thought the ? icon would look good, but it looks weird), and I'm also happy to change the BG color.
Also I made it so it repeats so it doesn't look ugly

here's another one i made coz i got bored again. i know the guidelines say to make it at 1024 pixels wide, but the forum for me is 1350 pixels wide, so i made it that wide - I figured it'd shrink down/enlarge anyway. Again, I made it so it repeats, and can change the BG color if wanted.

^ it's ok to make it a little off. The coding adjust somewhat as do I when I place it. I try to test it on my work computer which is an older monitor, my phone, 3ds, 55inch tv, Gamepad, vita and widescreen computer monitor when I have the time to see how each image looks... (yeah i know too much time on my hands) it's not going to work out for all devices but i settle on what looks best overall.
