So we're considering to change the background on the wiki. We'd like some input.

i can just barely tell a difference between the two.  i may be imagining that difference on account of you told me it exists.  really, as long it's a nice dark color and won't fry my retinas every time i look something up it's fine.

One is based on the dirt texture and the original just has some gray circles here and there randomly.

Hi guys I am new in this fórum but not in this site, I have played Minecraft FTB in the last 3 years and used this wiki all the time, just now registered in this forum. My native language is portuguese and I am from Brazil. I never studied english and learned it by myself, so I beg you all for my gramatical errors.

 

Well, I voted for the new one background, it's look more like minecraft and the new texture remember me a block of ash stone, this block can be found in volcano biome from Biomes O Plenty mode.

 

Cya.

I don't really like the new background all that much. It's kind of fuzzy and hard on the eyes, and draws a lot of attention to itself when a background shouldn't. While yes it looks more minecraft-y, you don't really need your background to look minecrafty.

What he/she said. When it comes to backgrounds, minimal is better.

 

That said, if it wasn't a background, props to whomever designed the texture. It is pretty cool, just not for a background.

 

Edit: Oh it do think it would be great if that new background texture could be used only at the top of the page for the background of the header area.

maybe ad a block texture like oak_leaves or dirt but even if it is only suttile like in my example it still breaks up the back ground and maybe you could make different pages have different back grounds to keep it fresh for longerScreen Shot 2016-01-09 at 4.17.54 pm.png

(click picture it isn't just black)

I agree that the new background draws too much attention to itself. It might be workable with less contrast between the lighter and darker greys.

There was a much lighter variant of the background, but that was voted out by the staff. Given that it's pretty much a tie al the time, I'm thinking we'll probably stick with our current background for now.
