Customizing the main page

Hi.  So I finally figured out how to create a custom bg for the mainpage but I'm not happy about the quality.  Too pixellated, but then wikia's parameters are very restrictive and I do want to use KuSajou image that is colorized and official.  That's also limiting.  If anyone has solid skills in manipulating images via Paint or Gimp or Photoshop, I'm open to help and/or suggestions.  On the Psycho-Pass wiki I administer, an editor actually created an alternate mainpage and offered it to me.  It was awesome and we used it. Over time, he became a great editor and ally, and was eventually promoted to adminship.  That's how it happened for me, as well.  Being such a new wiki, I'm looking for editors who are devoted (very) and skilled (to some extent).  So keep contributing, keep editing and keep telling your friends about this wikia.  Thanks to you all who have edited so far.  Angelle aka Luxartisan (talk) 17:03, June 17, 2016 (UTC)

What I do in most of my wikis is have a small picture and then make it repeat. For example, you could use this picture and click the box that says Tile. 1436798812515.png If this picture doesn't work, try another one.

Here are examples on the Wikis I've worked on:

http://dirty-paws.wikia.com/ http://ladiescode.wikia.com/

If you need help with anything else, let me know! I can try making a picture that you can try to use for the background.

Also, the logo up in the top left corner is pixelized too.

Got the picture.  Had to shrink it by 5% in order to keep Sajou's profile from getting cut off.  But it looks good.  Thanks so much!  Angelle aka Luxartisan (talk) 01:49, June 18, 2016 (UTC)

And by the way, sorry I didn't ask about using your image before posting it.  I really didn't think it would be a problem except I messed up the attribution.  Sorry 'bout that, too.  I took the page offline for awhile, but then put it back.  I'll be getting in touch with the artists and asking if they're ok with their art being here.  If not, it will be removed.  I just wanted to showcase some of the great stuff fans do in a gallery format, which is what wikia offers.  Didn't mean to offend.  Angelle aka Luxartisan (talk) 01:54, June 18, 2016 (UTC)

You might want to check the box that says "fix" in the Theme Designer, cause if you scroll down from the top there's just a blank space.

Several of the artists of the pictures are from Pixiv.com, so here's a masterpost on how to ask for permission on pixiv, which includes tutorials for jow to ask in Japanese/Chinese/Korean. the tumblr/deviantart artists you can just send them an ask/note. KKyoyeon (talk) 13:48, June 18, 2016 (UTC)
