Recently, codeforces.com has a new background that you can see right now: a christmas themed background with snowflakes, adding more feelings of a holiday spirit onto codeforces. Seeing this, I had a random idea. What if we made this a monthly thing?

I'm sure that the white theme would be quite boring to look at after a while. Maybe, we could have some art on the background to look at while solving problems, to get more motivated? Or maybe we could have a dark mode themed codeforces, as many coders like to use dark mode for coding? Every month, art submissions could be submitted to codeforces, and there could be a system like the current contest proposal system but for artistic backgrounds. Just like the contest making system, we could add a cash reward for good artists who create an amazing art background for codeforces.

I think this would be a great idea, what do you guys think?

Great Idea. Maybe we could have themed contests in future maybe on games,animes,cars etc.

    I think so too! In a global round before, there was a task called Omkar and Bed Wars. There have also been contests about shows like My Little Pony, so I don't see why we shouldn't make codeforces contests with more diverse themes!

This is not artforces. You can also make permanent changes to a website's aesthetics if you change the css using developer tools: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/25488746/how-to-make-permanent-changes-to-a-websites-css-from-within-the-browser
