About was created on December 4th, 2011. It's an image sharing network, completely community-driven. In fact, users upload wallpapers, tag them, categorize them and even delete them if they don't respect our rules. If you like the idea you might consider signing up.

Each user has a personal profile, favorites, achievements and other intresting things, take a look at the admin's profile.

The wallpapers are highly categorized, each wallpaper has its own title, category and some tags, which are required for the search engine to work. Optionally they can also have a description and a license specified.

We take copyright violations very seriously, read our policy on the matter.
