Here's the welcome message for those who missed it:

Welcome to Desktop Nexus!
Thanks for joining our community! If you're eager to dive right into it, feel free to skip this welcome message by clicking the Close button in the top-right corner... otherwise let's spend a few minutes exploring some of what Desktop Nexus has to offer.


Who are we?
Desktop Nexus is the world's largest computer wallpaper website. Millions of visitors stop by every month to explore our galleries, share their collections, comment on wallpapers, choose their favorites, and meet new friends. Our community is family-friendly, and one where respectful behavior is required (see our Code of Conduct). Our entire site is 100% free to use and completely safe (no viruses or spyware), so kick back, relax, and enjoy your stay!

Downloading Wallpapers
Desktop Nexus tries to make it easy for everyone to use our site, regardless of your technical prowess. When you find a wallpaper you like and want to use as your computer's background, simply visit that wallpaper's information page and click the big, blue "Download Now" button in the right column. This will engage an interal system which will automatically detect your computer's browser, screen resolution, and aspect ratio, and automatically crop, resize, and remaster the image, making it a perfect fit for your screen! If you're not sure how to set this image as your computer's background, there's a large "Instructions" button in the top-right corner which will guide you through the process.

Favoriting Wallpapers

There are thousands of wallpapers on Desktop Nexus, so how do you keep track of images that you might want to use as your background later? We have developed a system for you to flag wallpapers as your favorites, similar to saving a website bookmark on your computer (which by the way, you should absolutely do for Desktop Nexus :)). Simply visit the information page for the wallpaper you like, and click the "Add to Favorites" tab under the large preview image (you can click it again later to remove the image from your favorites). After you have hand-picked your favorite images on Desktop Nexus, you can view them anytime by clicking the "My Account" link in the top-right corner of any page, then clicking the "Favorites" tab.

Following Your Favorite Members
As you use Desktop Nexus for a while, you're sure to encounter members with similar interests as yourself (their uploads, their comments, etc). We now offer a way for you to become a fan of that member, similar to how you would favorite a wallpaper. If you have used Twitter or Facebook's friend feed, you'll recognize this as similar. To become a fan of a member, first visit their profile by clicking their name anywhere on Desktop Nexus, then you'll see a brown "Become a Fan" button under their member name. Simply click that button, then when you visit your "Recent Activity" page, you'll quickly see what all your favorite members are doing on Desktop Nexus.

Interact!
There's a lot more to Desktop Nexus which you'll discover by exploring our site, but don't be shy! If you like a wallpaper, leave a comment thanking the user for uploading it. If you find a member you admire, leave them a comment on their profile. Stop by our forum and participate in ongoing conversations. Join our Facebook Group! Invite your friends, co-workers, and family to stop by and check us out! Or even leave us a message about what you think of the site (we love to hear from members).

Again, welcome to our community. Enjoy your stay!
