That would be cool!

jrpowell's avatar

Give me a few minutes.

mirza's avatar

How about all the designers on fluther make a fluther wallpaper.

The best entry gets a free facebook application for their blog, a DropBox account and respect from me.

Well… I might make a really nice one if you give me a few days (I have to finish my finals first).

I have been drinking.

I didn’t properly center it.

Foolaholic's avatar

@jp

Thank you. That’s hot.

willbrawn's avatar

thats is really cool, simple & clean

jrpowell's avatar

And if anyone wants other sizes. Just ask. It will only take about 30 seconds.

marinelife's avatar

@johnpowell Would it be greedy to ask for more jellies?

jrpowell's avatar

Do you want smaller ones on the same image?

marinelife's avatar

That sounds purty.

robmandu's avatar

I like dark backgrounds for my desktop.

richmarshall's avatar

This is cool.

robmandu's avatar

Like @jp, I’m working quick ‘n dirty here… but here’s one that uses that purty Fluther wallpaper pattern.

elchoopanebre's avatar

JP’s first one is now my desktop

Thanks!

robmandu's avatar

Like I said, quick & dirty: I missed the 1280×800 request, so here goes again with the proper dimensions.

Adina1968's avatar

johnpowell & robmandu you guys rock! Thanks for the backgrounds!

delirium's avatar

Okay, now I feel bad and have to do one. **Shakes fist**

I blame y’all if I get a bad grade on my finals! ;)

marinelife's avatar

I want them all! I await delirium’s entry with anticipation.

marinelife's avatar

@Robmandu Love the blue with the Fluther jelly aqua!

@johnpowell I like the concept of the jelly reproducing in your second entry.

marinelife's avatar

My first Fluther wallpaper is now loaded! Are you guys going to let Ben & Andrew sell them?

Foolaholic's avatar

would anyone be interested in doing one of the art from the top of the blog page?

Adina1968's avatar

Fooaholic that is a great idea!

mirza's avatar

@foolaholic: resized

delirium's avatar

Paper Fluther

Yeah, I’ll get a lighter less messy one up in second.

:/
Its really really shrunk down there. That’s incredibly frustrating. Is there anywhere that’ll host it for me fullsize?

bulbatron9's avatar

I love them all, but damn Del, yours is SWEET!

@mirza What are you trying to accomplish with your link?

delirium's avatar

I…. have a very different style than most people here.
I’m happy you like it. :D

;) I toldja my art didn’t suck!

delirium's avatar

Clean Version

Light Version

They’re really small, though. I.. i’ll try and find a way to put up the big versions somewhere.

bulbatron9's avatar

Your art rocks! I just didn’t enjoy the “elephant” piece you did! HAHAHA

I would love to see more of your art!

delirium's avatar

Hahaha! I understand. ;)

I’ll show you some of the stuff that I do, sometime. I need to scan a bunch of it, but I have some crappy photos of a few recent sketches and some of my digital drawings up online. **Goes to PM to not clog the thread**

marinelife's avatar

@Mirza This was what I got when I went to your link:

Remote Linking of images is forbidden.

robmandu's avatar

@del, simply awesome. Greatness indeed. Well done!

delirium's avatar

Yay! I’m happy you like it. Though I must say, it is better bigger. Once I figure out how, a bigger one will be appearing.

mirza's avatar

Apparently my secondary web host doesnt let me link to images like photobucket.

@delirium: i like the clean version

Allie's avatar

delirium: Those are awesome! Very nice.. =]

ben's avatar

@delirium:
I love it! Clean is my new wallpaper, too. Excited for a high-res version.

Bravo

jrpowell's avatar

Wow Del. Those are great.

Foolaholic's avatar

@delirium: Those are really nice. Could you possibly do a 1280×800 for me?

jrpowell's avatar

And Del. E-mail them to me and I will host all of them you can come up with at any size.

jrpowell's avatar

@fool
Clean

Light

I resized them for you.

sccrowell's avatar

Ohhhhh WoW!!! You all are awesome! These are terrific! NO, there are better than terrific….

delirium's avatar

JP: Thank you so much! <3!

And thank you for the ego stroking, everyone. **feels warm and fuzzy**

jrpowell's avatar

Here are the original ones Del made at 1280 X 800.

delirium's avatar

Holy.. helll…..

bulbatron9's avatar

No SHIT!

I’ve got the top right, on lockdown!

breedmitch's avatar

Now that’s impressive!

robmandu's avatar

Ni-i-i-i-i-i-ice, Phoenyx!

Found myself @ 16 down, 23 across… just under Chuck Norris apparently. He won’t know what hit him.

Fluthertastic!

Foolaholic's avatar

why does my old avatar show up (nine up from left lower corner)?
And 1280×800 if you please!

robmandu's avatar

@foolaholic, 1,400×900 is sized with the right aspect ratio to scale down perfectly to 1,280×800.

For a PC’s desktop wallpaper, this is handled automatically. So while the filesize might be slightly more than is necessary for you, it’s a practically negligible difference for most applications. The upside is that those of us who prefer a larger format need not worry about upscaling artifacts.

Is there some significance to requiring an exact 1,280×800?

robmandu's avatar

Oh, and the fluther servers used to (still do?) keep all of the images you had uploaded for use as an avatar (on http://static.fluther.com). The recent server upgrade has moved off of that, though.

Anyway, my guess is that @phoenyx had to manually download all avatar images, and then arbitrarily keep only one of the several that some people had loaded (perhaps chosen alphabetically instead of by most recent date).

It was likely quite a bit of effort, or at least, quite a bit of expertise to knock it out quickly.

mirza's avatar

Wow phoenix.

phoenyx's avatar

Since people are asking about the process:

I got the idea when this question was posted and thought it might be a fun stretch of my ruby skills. I used Hpricot to grab all of the image files with “thumb” in the filename. I grabbed about 850 images, pretty much at random, and eliminated the ones that looked like dupes or whatever until I had 792 (32 X 22). I then stitched them all together with rmagick and padded the 1440 X 880 image out to 1440 X 900.

It looks like there are still a couple of duplicates and my script grabbed both current avatars and formerly used avatars, so some users are over represented. I was pleased with how it turned out, though. If I had more time I’d like to make them into some kind of larger image (photomosaic style) or make sure each person is only represented once.

marinelife's avatar

@phoenyx I think it’s great. I think I am missing though. Sniff.

robmandu's avatar

@mirza, who, in your opinion, wins all the booty based on submissions to date?

Or should we ask everyone here to GA their faves, as votes.

jlm11f's avatar

that’s not true marina. i see you! (3rd column, 6 down)

marinelife's avatar

@PnL Thanks! I am there!

@phoenyx Sorry! My oversight, not yours. It really is an impressive piece of work.

robmandu's avatar

Okay, by my reckoning, there have been 969 unique users on Fluther (up to the new server upgrade, at least). Of those, many folks have opted to use one of the brilliant default images.

If someone uses a default image, then s/he does not have a thumbnail photo in their personal avatars directory (hence why there aren’t a lot of jellyfish in the mosaic.)

Again, cannot know for absolute certain, but I agree with @wildflower and @PnL that it smells right to me that everyone with an uploaded avatar photo (up to the server upgrade) is represented.

Yay!

And now I just realized that @Marina has uploaded her own personal jellyfish image. How clever!

mirza's avatar

@robmandu: since there are no more sumbissions, I would say its a tie between Delirium and phoenix. SO both of you guys win a dropbox account and a facebook application for your blog. If you want the prizes, pm me.

robmandu's avatar

Nice! And I agree!

Well played, all!

marinelife's avatar

Mirza is the man in this area, and I agree that the winners are highly deserving. Congratulations to all.

I downloaded everything. I expect I will rotate them.

I just want you to know, robmandu, that yours is my current background. (I lurve the dark background.)

andrew's avatar

@robmandu: 969? We’re pushing 8K registered users.

marinelife's avatar

@Andrew I guess now you don’t have to answer me on the podcast. I have wondered if there are a lot of lurkers, i.e., people who read and give lurve, but do not post.

robmandu's avatar

Heh, @Andrew… my reckoning did seem too low. Just counting unique dirs for user avatars on http://static.fluther.com.

Bad idea, I see.

mirza's avatar

Is fluther getting a new logo ? and whats with andrews eye

jrpowell's avatar

Here is one that goes along with the tee shirt color.

marinelife's avatar

@johnpowell I could not view that one.

jrpowell's avatar

My host probably went down. It seems to work now.

jlm11f's avatar

i can see it

ezraglenn's avatar

Wow. These are so amazing. Delerium’s first one is my current background. I love the water stains! haha.

Phoenyx you are a beast.

jrpowell's avatar

@phoenyx
Care to share the source of that script? I would love to read it.

I also use Ruby and the Gem you posted. I love looking at code.

bluemukaki's avatar

@phoenyx: You should use those images and feed them into an automatic mosaic maker with the fluther logo! I tried just by pulling some avatars off some of the questions in my recent activity and the result is here, although it uses some users over and over again and I couldn’t find any green-y ones that worked…

phoenyx's avatar

I posted a link to the image files I used over in this thread.

johnpowell: remind me next time I’m in the chat channel.

crunchaweezy's avatar

Hate to be a pain, but does anyone have a 1920×1200 wallpaper?

jrpowell's avatar

@crunchaweezy

What one would you like at that size? I can resize it for you. The quality will be slightly lower but any one of them should hold up well.

Here is one Del made at 1920×1200.

edit :: damn, that turned out to have a large file size. I will try to fix that.

bluemukaki's avatar

Ok, I’ve put Phoenyx’s thumbs through a Mosaic generator (called MozoDojo by the way, and it’s really cool) and it’s come out with a few pretty cool images, there weren’t enough thumbs to get a good resolution and shape on the jellyfish and have a full wallpaper size image, so I made them square images. Check them out on Flickr.

jrpowell's avatar

Whoa.. Those are really cool bluemukaki.

robmandu's avatar

Ver-r-r-r-r-r-ry nice, @bluemukaki!!

Isn’t weird how you can never seem to find your own avatar, but you can see everyone else’s?
