Finally! Now I don't have to put sunscreen when I log on to the Escapist.

Wooo!

caiman16:
"Bacon Ipsum" is a joke about "Lorem Ipsum", which is used in graphic design to see a mock up of the final design.

Lol, yeah I spotted that one. I found it more amusing then the actual backgrounds.

Fappy:
Neato! Thanks guys!

EDIT: Holy shit the puppies are seizure inducing! Tell me you have one of these planned for kitties?!

My... my brain... can't think. Can't see... can't puppy... PUPPIES!

Also? I approve of Bacon Ipsum wholeheartedly.

You know the background options would of been 20% cooler if you had a pony option preferable MLP: FiM.

I'm kidding! I was pefectly fine with the last background option but none the less I'm glad to see the original background.

I think that's a pretty sweet idea! I'ma go check it out and see what I come up with. I just thought the background was being changed to blue, and that was pretty cool in itself, but that I can customise the background? That's just awesome! (express)

Arkley:
The Escapist's site designers have clearly compromised their artistic integrity, and thus the artistic integrity of all site designs, by buckling to fan demand for a less shitty site design.

Please take care to phrase your criticisms respectfully.

That's great, I thought I was just having a wicked nostalgia trip for a minute.

This is awesome. Thanks!

I went through all of them one at a time, hesitating on puppies. I thought to myself, "the others have been...okay, surely this will just be some pastoral photo of a puppy in the grass or some such." When I clicked the submit button I sealed my fate; All 32 inches of my screen exploded in light and color, fear and horror, desperation and madness. With my last cognitive thought I type out this message as a warning to all other escapists: Beware. The. Puppies.

Doggy background ftw! This is just awesome. :D

Awesome!!! Thank you very much guys.

Puppies made me laugh a lot. Can we get one with ZOMGPONIES? Or even better... Ponycorns?

Stay tuned, we're going to be making another announcement later this week about how you can get involved :)

If by "getting involved" you mean give amazing feedback/suggestions here's mine: have a background of a volcano spewing a fountain of adorable kittens out the top.

I advocate this plan.

I sense a design competition maybe?

OT: ZP Yellow... awaaaaaaay!

And there's Susan's stamp of approval. Make it happen! :D

So you caved, eh?

The artistic integrity of this site has now been damaged beyond repair and the medium of websites set back decades!

Shame on you Escapist. This is why we can't have nice things.

Sorry. I just couldn't resist.

Oh wow, the puppies are so painful. xD

I think I'll stick with the Apocalypse one. Seems pretty cool. :0

OK, so I love the blue one, but I also love Fireworks, and I love both Zero Punctuation. Seriously Escapist, why do you make me choose one out of 4 awesome!?!?!?!?!

I'll stick with Zero Punctuation for now.

Oh, thank you, so much.

This is such a relief to my eyes...

I would like to see a dragon background.

Nice one! Think I'll keep with Escapist blue, brings back memories :)

Thanks for the not rotate options,
I would be watching a video on the site and something changes in my screen and I am always searching what exactly happens. It was really annoying.

Also can you provide higher quality backgrounds? Im on a full hd screen and some of the lines of the ZP background look a little jagged. Is that just me or?

If you think the puppies background is seizure inducing, CTRL - to zoom out all the way and then stare at it....

I wholeheartedly approve of this update.

Hit the Escapist today and I was in awe. Is that the classic Escapist background I see?!?!?

There was much rejoicing, and thank you for listening to your user base, even if it took months for you to finally give in.

i see Retake The Escapist was successful. Way to give in to consumer demand. I know a lot of people are now going to ask "doesn't this change take away from the artistic vision of the original artists?"

but i think it was the right move. instead of just a different color, we can now see how our choices effected us by watching the puppies chase after rainbows.

Mumorpuger:
Awesome!!! Thank you very much guys.

I friggin' love ponycorns.

I hate myself for getting that reference XD

DAMMIT SISSY!

And I love you for the same. :D

Thank my chaotic lord that we have the old default back and more. That white was bleaching the color from my face and arms.

Volcano kittens. You'll kill us all man!
I very much like the idea of letting the talented of the shuffling undead masses of The Escapists help in creating some awesome backgrounds for the site, and maybe more.

Aww yissssssss.

So good.

We'll look into that. Thank you!

WOAH Holy crap! I didn't even notice until I saw the article, but thank GOD. That looks SO much better. Hello blue rectangles. My old friends.

The puppies make me want to vomit rainbows during the 3DS-like seizure it gave me. Kind of surprised that there wasn't a DDKR or PONY! theme, somewhere in there.

The default, apocalypse, and black ZP are fairly calm. I'll probably switch between those.

Also, hey, had you guys held out longer, we might have tried to bribe you with cupcakes. You caved too soon!

YEAAAAAAHH! This is great!

Also, the text tester made me hungry. :(

Yay! Thanks Escapist, definitely appreciate having the option to change it.

on a related note; PUPPIES!

Thank you for letting me turn off the rotating stuff!

Minor bug: I keep trying to set background animation to 'No' but every time I go back to that page, it's set back to 'Yes.'

Also, a request: I used to catch up on videos on lunch at work from my phone, but after the site design, it's REALLY hard to do. It's difficult to browse, nothing will load until everything has loaded on a page, and the news is super difficult to browse - which sucks since I barely get reception in my work's office. Maybe a separate mobile setup that's faster and more streamlined? The current setup is GREAT for my home pc, but yeah.

At any rate, keep up the great work guys! <3

Thank you kindly! All that white hurted my poor little strained eyeballs...

Now is there anything you can do for my carpal tunnel syndrome...?

Heh, there I was wondering why my background had suddenly changed. I'm sticking with the white (first person to say that?) but I totally appreciate the option to change if I feel like it.
