What about small animations?
Hmm. The code as it stands isn't designed to handle that, but I don't see why it couldn't.

is it even possible to use a gif as a background?
No, but you could load it as a sprite.

If saved as a strip it should work fine

it sure would make sense to have submissions looks like large strips

I'd still need to add some metadata or clever logic to figure out the frame count and delay, though.

did you know that spinning stars work like this???

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. execute_strings on fire off the shoulder of Overmars. I watched object-beams glitter in the dark near the room_goto_fix. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears...in...rain. Time to die.

Did someone say they need to embed metadata inside an image file?!

numframes = width/height
delay = fixed number or encoded into a hidden pixel

I was thinking as simple as 2 frame animations that cycle through the frames every second

that's what I meant by clever logic

delay = fixed number or encoded into a hidden pixel
hmm hidden pixel sounds better

Well, you know, a "menu background" subcategory in art.
Your background becomes official for a week or a month. Or forever if it's really good.

actually a great idea, execpt I think prefer the idea of having it change more often rather than just have one persons background be chosen and used for a short time period

i have an idea. we add this but we use it to promote the shit out of the haxxies, then after the haxxies we start accepting submissions. if there is ever a lack of submissions, we reuse some of the haxxy promotion ones. the haxxy promotion backgrounds should come from the haxxy submissions
