Done, I am thinking from a strategic point of view:
1. If you submit first and there are a lot of submitted screenshots, noone is going to look at the last page.
2. If you submit early and there are online 1-3 pages of screenshots you might get more since you had more time to gather clicks?

At the moment the second strategy seems the best if you look at the first submitted screens and how many reads they got... :idea:

doesn't matter when you submit since all judges will go through all screenshots and vote. good luck to you :) but if i were to pick,... i would submit late ;)

^Probably better known to Pink Floyd fans as the album cover of Dark Side of the Moon. :D

Here you can see 'the other half': http://www.minilps.net/images/stories/shop_image/product/pink-floyd-dark-side-open-gatefold.jpg

See the comments on the cover art in: Whoops! Blunders and Mistakes of Science and Engineering.

If you like near vanilla desktops, here is an example:
http://sc.gentooligans.com/image/anonymous/2012/08/03/vivos-kde-desktop
The idea is that for a work box the desktop must not be intrusive but still pleasant.

Maybe the photo are not rolling skulls but cannot force myself to change it :-P

Best

Sorry for displaying the limited capabilities of my understanding but, without any disrespect to Spark25x, could someone explain to me how it is possible for anyone to be 4th ?

I read that congratulations were made to likewhoa for putting together the Screenshot content management system.
I personally express my thanks to likewhoa.

For the congratulations... Considering the number of votes, I will wait for him to explain how his system did to obtain such a rating... :twisted:

Hello,

Congratulations to everyone. Can anyone please tell me where to find Spark25x's background image? I really liked the background but I could not find it yet. Thank you very much.

Nope link no longer works!
There are very nice shots in there - problem is I would never use a view as desktop, would grow tired after just a week.
Had I seen this before Spark would have got my vote too.
