We've got fun news and not-so-good news. The fun news is about the new feature released for Jimdo's birthday -- read about it at the bottom. The not-so-good news is about the t-shirts for the quiz-takers... read about that right below. We'll get it out of the way first.

New Birthday Feature

Most of you got this right on the birthday quiz! The new feature for Jimdo's 3rd birthday is a custom background! Now if you log in and go to the Style section, you can click on the new custom background section and upload your own image! Don't forget to choose whether the image should be tiled (repeated) horizontally and/or vertically.

Don't have any background images of your own at the moment? Not to worry, we've found a few places where you can look. But remember to check the copyright/use licenses:

Enjoy! (and here are some examples of sites with custom backgrounds)
