    The wii backround of the main page looks white and plain. who thinks there should be a backround wallpaper for the nintendo wii it would spice the whole system up a bit.

    If anything color themes, likewise the use of an image wouldn't do much good as the channel boxes sort of block any real art. It'd be possible to use a template and design images that worked in such limited space, but really I don't see the point unfortunately and would rather see the time spent on adding headset or even HDD support.

    Color would be a nice addition in the next update. Although, time would be much better spent if they added a headset or something else that would improve the gaming experience as KhrisKhaos has said.

    Art in the backround would be awsome, and being able to get them from the net would be cool too

    See but theres the problem, the blocks where the game start thing is, the photo channel, the mii channel, and all of those will be in the way. Unless of course they faded the blocks and they only became solid or non-transparent when the cursor goes over it. it may work then. all i know is that IMO it wouldnt matter. the addition would be cool though.

    Coloured Templates like on the DS would be a nice addition.

    There's no reason why they shouldn't have customizable backgrounds. Yeah the channels would block much of it, but so what, it would look cool with just a black background instead of white. Or green or something. Or pics uploaded from an sd card. And by the way, this would take about 1 minute to program into an update, for all you thinking they could "spend their time better" creating headset support, which also btw would take about 5 minutes to program.
    Nintendo needs to get off its @$$ and allow some meager level of customization, it would make us feel a little more attached to our systems! Xbox 360 has fully customizable menus, and for a reason! Not just because it's cool, but it allows a more pesonal connection to the system, as cheesy as that sounds, it's true.

    Some sort of background would be nice in the message board bit because with just being white is kinda boring and just too white really lol

    The background is fine in my opinion.
    It suits its purpose well, holds the channels together nicely, so I don't see the need for a new colour.

    I agree. I don't really see the need for it. And like everyone else said, the time making that feature could be spent on something else.

    Yeah! A color change would be great, maybe they'll update it to allow us to do that.

    Probably sometime around Wiiware's major launch in Spring 2008. Sorry guys, we have one heck of a wait. But it's clear Nintendo has something in the works for improving the Wii interface. It will not remain the same forever.

    instead, maybe they should make a 'customize channel' where you could like not just change the coulors but add tints or borders or even MAKE the pictures you put in the backround of the channel sorta like the pc's default 'paint' it would be even cooler if you could do it to other parts of the wii menu channels. just a suggestion :)

    ARav989: Is that what I think it is in your avatar? That's the incredible shot of a swingset swarmed with bees being torched, isn't it? :lol: "2 QUARTS OF 87 OCTANE GASOLINE REPORTING FOR DUTY SIR!" haha.

    I wouldn't mind some customization options, but KrisKhaos has a point. With such limited space to have a real effect with background images, unless you're able to customize the whole layout of the channel (like view less on each "page"), it'd be nearly pointless. I think I'd settle for alternate color schemes, though, and maybe even a ticker option (for game, news, or weather updates, whichever channel you subscribe it to).

    What makes you say that, exactly? Wii Ware is essentially just a way for third parties to make new VC titles.

    Edit:You know, I just thought of a interesting idea for a custom interface which supports your own sort of "wallpaper" laid out across the channels, but I think I'll have to take it to photoshop & imageready to truly display what I'm thinking.
