Very cool! Clever incorporation of the logo in the first pic.
K. Got them submitted.

Thanks. I really like 'em when the logo appears to be part of the pic.
This is one of my faves, but again the resolution is way to low to be distributing.

Thank you everyone, for all the cracking (ie, wonderful) submissions so far.

Mauser, Clicktician, Manzana, Dreamer - will you be posting your pics/suggestions - currently in this thread - in the Community page as well?

Reminder: Deadline is end of Monday, 26 November 2018. Since we have members from different time zones, let's fix this at 11.30pm, Monday, California time. That's about 24 hours from now.
I had completely forgotten about the OP and that one was supposed to upload to the community site. It's only 9 hours left. I don't have an account. I don't know the specifics regarding licenses so I would have to figure that out. If someone with an account liked the pic I posted please upload it. I posted the link to the picture url right below it. Anyway, here it is:

https://www.opendesktop.org/p/1273699/

Forum member freefreeno posted that charlie-henson (creator of the picture) had given him permission. From freefreeno's link:

Absolutely man, the MX team can use any of my wallpapers they like.. Ask the MX team if they can link my profile page into their community :). If you click on my name it will take you to my profile page and from there you can see nearly 4000 wallpapers.. Thanks for the kind words FreeFreeno

I have a guy's named Charlie Henson's permission to link his entire wallpaper collection from opendesktop.org here for you all. If you go herehttps://www.opendesktop.org/p/1255841/ you'll see that I have gotten his permission and if you go herehttps://www.opendesktop.org/u/charlie-henson/ you'll find entire collection. I have used his work on and off for a long time. I have already made some mx linux wallpapers from his work but when I try to upload them I it says wrong password. How can I have the wrong password when I am logged in right now. very weird and confusing.
All in all, I had forgotten about the OP and didn't take this seriously, sorry. I uploaded just for fun, I didn't think more about it. I used the wallpaper for some time and was quite happy with it. :bagoverhead:

Since the Creative Commons licence attached to the Charlie Henson pic is very general, and the author has given his express consent as long as proper attribution is given, I will just take it that you've submitted this wallpaper for consideration.

Similarly, I will take it that Manzana's Ecuadorian volcano pic has been submitted, since it was taken by him.

If any of these are selected, we will then sort out the sizing and attachment of logo.


I will not include clicktician's Pinocchio and 2 skyline pics in this thread (based on his own reasons). He has already posted his actual 2 submissions on the Community page. Mauser's is also now up.

Thanks,
I look forward to see the official for MX18. I think all MX releases that I have seen had a good default wallpaper. As long as people aren't upset or annoyed by it it's good. I used the Kingfisher wallpaper for quite some time.

I have a wallpaper ready already for MX-18. Since there is no MX-18 section and it won't let me upload it to the MX-17 section, here it is here. Image
Love it!
