Custom Background on whole site
I think Steam should have the option of adding your own background for more than just your own profile. why not let users have a custom background for browsing the store and other pages so that they can experience steam in a more personal way. we could have that as an option under the profile edit screen titled "Browsing Background" or something similar while still having the ability to have a customized background featured on your profile.

Also what about personalized backgrounds that users can make such as the emblem for their team or faction for certain games or similar things as long as there is a strict procedure blocking out nudity or profanity.

How does steam and the publishers of all these games make money if you can upload your own background?

Who is in charge of moderating the millions of backgrounds?

Steam could have it as a subscrition for users to pay a small fee each month to upload their own backgrounds and they could have the users get them approved before using to avoid uploading vulgar or profane images.

I would be willing to pay the fee to have a custom background on my profile and im sure most serious gamers would as well.

They should have a option of Browsing Backgrounds you can buy or unlock through crafting badges.They would make money from this so this could happen. Uploading your own would be bad there would be no profit for anyone so they won't do it.

It would be a background just for browsing and using steam. only you would see it.

If that is so why is the Fee even coming into play?

I think Enhanced Steam will allow you to choose your background (even if you don't have it, I think). But it only shows for you and other users who have Enhanced Steam, normal users won't see your background.

It would be better if it was free but I'm just thinking they would not be motivated to do it because they would not make money from it. Game developers would make the backgrounds like profile backgrounds.

If they made it free to have a browsing background then they might as well allow custom backgrounds as well.

or really just allow profile backgrounds for browsing screens.
