    What size should I make my background picture for my profile? It's either too wide, or too short.
    Please help (measurements in pixels please)

    I'm pretty sure the dimensions depends on the screen resolution everyone has.

    So... there's no guarantee that if it works for you, it'd also do for others

    I think that if it fits for one person, it'll fit for others, it'll just be bigger or smaller.
    Yours fits perfectly JIM, and mine is too short on the right

    mine doesnt go down far enough, but it does cover the message section so it looks pretty sweet. and i didnt have to change the colour scheme
