- Embedded images should be smaller than or equal to 1440x900 (preferably 1024x768).
- The file size for image previews should be no larger than 750 KB.
- Images linked externally should be no larger than 3 MB.

- If you plan to img-embed your desktop, please try to keep it under 100k (It's recommended that you link it, externally).
- Stay within the board rules, no matter how yummy you may believe it to be.
- If you are going to quote, there isn't a need to quote an img-embeded picture - Just don't do it. Please just reference the post by page number/page link/etc.
- The desktops thread is not to be used as a means to post images of a pornographic or otherwise provocative nature. We do not support a babes forum and neither will we in an unofficial capacity. Please help to keep the thread relevant and safe to browse for everyone.
- The moderators of this forum reserve the right to edit or remove your posts as necessary so they may comply with our Community Rules and so that the thread remains on topic.

In the interests of keeping the thread on topic it is strongly urged that you format your posts in the following order:
- Themes: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).
- Wallpaper: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).
- Icons: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).
- Programs: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).

For finding mystery wallpapers, consider using Google Images Reverse Search or Tineye.
Please use reduced-size thumbnails, where possible, out of respect for people running on lower bandwidth or screen resolutions.
Any image posted that is over established guidelines will be removed! Use a thumbnail or use a text link to your image. If your image is removed, this is why.

Wallpaper is Lindsey Stirling, of course.

Desktop Gadgets are various Python scripts displayed through GeekTool. Some like the clock, and code to determine the moon phase I got elsewhere, but the rest is custom to suite my needs, and minimize the number of requests sent to Yahoo and Environment Canada.

Bartender is used to minimize the number of Menu Bar icons, and remove those that don't play nice with the black Menu Bar.

Im assuming your running OS X ML or Mav correct? I really want to know what you used for the black bar and dock. Also if you could include icons that would be sweet. I mainly want the black bar and dock, i miss it from SL/L days. Also what are you running for a music player. BTW im glad someone else listens to Die Antwood haha :D
