Anyone with a thousand points can edit the background image. I doubt the moderators are going to step on anyone's toes if someone adds a background image first.

I've generally been sticking with the policy of not messing with pages where someone with 1000+ points has already set the bg image. I'd like to think if you care enough about a page to get 1000 points on it that you care enough to select a good bg image.

I just want to suggest the "elongated arm/air dunk" from Space Jam as the header image for the Michael Jordan character page. If at all possible. That is all.

You know I'm right.

I'm going to defer to @zombiepie on all matters related to his airness.

While I like the current header for the Final Fantasy X page, I think it should have a little tweak.

While I think this image would suit better (and overall works better on different resolutions), I can see why you may choose to not want the same pose/image on the background one as well as the display picture but it makes a fantastic header.

If you do want to keep with the current one, I have uploaded one which should hopefully mean both Yuna and Tidus's faces should be visible at the same time (rather than what I currently have which is being able to see Yuna's neck and head while only seeing up to Tidus's lips (which is kind of jarring). Although to get this I had to make it so at some resolutions a part of Yuna's hair is obscured by the Display picture (which is why I think the first image ultimately suits better as the focus of the image isn't blocked at any resolution that I can test).

Pick whichever you think is best (and while I did repeatedly try and add them to the Final Fantasy X page, I kept getting repeated errors each time - so I have had to simply leave them on my uploaded images part - meaning you may have to put them on FFX's page).

P.S. Your header testing system is great, thanks for making it.

@dixavd: I think I'd like the tweaked one (I was the one who requested the header initially).

@toug: @tearhead: @darkvare: @dixavd: @yummylee: @amatureidiot: @rpwll: @hailinel: Alright, I think I'm caught up on all of those. Thanks for more great suggestions.

A quick reminder, please make sure the image is in the page's gallery. I know server issues may still be making this difficult at times, but it is helpful. If you couldn't add the image to the gallery, please let me know so I don't spend time looking for it.

Also, the gallery links are a little bit easier for me to work with as opposed to the raw image file link.

I decided to go with this image for Android. It's an easter egg from the Ice Cream Sandwich release.

I can't get the tester to work. That said the images I picked last time worked well. For the most part anyway. Crisis Core did not turn out great.

speaking of which This or This should be better for Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII

This for Devil May Cry 4

This for Tales of Vesperia

This for Shenmue

This might work for Shenmue II but i'm not keen on it. Up to you. It's harder to find good headers for the older games.

This for Skullgirls

This for Ninja Gaiden II It's not amazing but when most of the images for the game are people getting chopped up you take what you can get.

Again, I was unable to add them to each game's own gallery (is there a trick to it - I always get a "Very Busy..." message in the middle and a message at the top saying "An error happened, check back later" - I always go into its image library and click the "add new image(s)" button from there; is there an other way of doing it which will work?)

This more up for debate, but I don't really care for the current header for Mass Effect 3. I just don't think it really shows what the game is, which I feel is what the headers should do.

I think something like this would work better.

Can someone put one in for Eternal Darkness? I don't care what but just something

Maybe this one (getting Eternal Darkness and the planets in frame) but anything will do.

I'm familiar with the image used as the header on the "Alligator" concept page here: http://www.giantbomb.com/alligators/3015-3102/ . This is actually an image of a dead alligator illegally poached from the Florida Everglades. I strongly suggest we change the image to a live Alligator instead of showcasing the fruits of an illegal act. This picture should do nicely. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1c/Florida_Alligator.jpg

Ps: I also suggest we completely remove all forms of the original image from the website entirely. Thank you.

A lot of you guys are suggesting some relatively low quality and/or low res pictures. If it's an image that's not already the width of your screen, it's probably not the best option.

I think this image (the full size) would fit and work well as the doom header, but I guess it would have to be okay-ed by the artist for use. SO I guess maybe it's not a good image to use.
