Can we get some wallpaper color matching algorithm?

I know it's not a huge issue, but I think it would be cool if you could set the random wallpaper picker to choose sets of wallpapers that have similar color schemes. I've seen some websites do it, you can pick a color and it'll list wallpapers closest to it. If you could write something to generate two or three "general" colors for a wallpaper, the wallpaper picker could randomly choose second and third wallpapers based on loose color associations with the first.

It would give a greater chance to pick matching ocean or forest scenes, or whatever. Like I said, it's unimportant, but it would be cool.

That would be *really* cool!

I think there's an algorithm that everyone uses to match a background color to your chosen wallpaper, so this could very well be doable. It has to come behind my suggestions, though!

I notice you guys have a beta tester tag. How could I get in on some private beta testing?

You have to pay at least 100 CND to Jon. A small gift to him is recommended as well.

No, just kidding. Once upon a time, there was no Beta section in the forum, everything was done by mail. We had to announce if we want to participate.
Today it should be enough to ask Jon to get access to the private beta testing area.

No 'beta testing' going on at the moment. If you've proven you can walk on hot coals/code, Jon may consider adding in when the testing starts up again. :wink:

I like the idea of colour matching images, perhaps I'll investigate this for version 3.2. As for beta testing, there isn't any beta testing going on right now. It will probably start-up again in December. Thanks!

BTW, Jon: our mega-incredible-awesome-cool Beta-Tester image is broken. The url http://www.binaryfortress.com/Forum/Themes/core/images/custom_displayfusion_beta.gif isn't valid.

Thanks for the heads-up Carsten. I have been upgrading the forum today, and there's been a few surprises. It should be all fixed up now.
