I'm not only a fan of tiling WMs, but also of tiling Wallpapers. Maybe we can build a little collection of links and self-made patterns.

I'll start with:
http://squidfingers.com/patterns

And a nice one-liner to grab all of them in one go:

Code:
for i in {001..158}; do \
  wget http://www.squidfingers.com/files/patterns/pattern_${i}.zip; \
  unzip pattern_${i}.zip; \
  rm pattern_${i}.zip; \
done

xsetroot -bg \#121212 -mod 3 3

I like tiling wallpapers, but most of the time I prefer solid colors with a bit of gradient. Some people just have different preferences.

Yeah, nice ones. I like glossy wallpapers.

I uploaded a compilation of nice tiles.
Example:

Also [**this** website](http://www.colourlovers.com/pattern) is great.

But...some people don't like markdown. "To each their own".

You can still use BBcode.

Thanks, updated my post.

And Venam, I looked in both manages listed under Help. I didn't Ctrl-F "spoiler", Ctrl-F "hide", ect, and skimmed them both and came up with nothing. Perhaps I overlooked it.

There's lots of texture wallpapers in various sizes here:
http://wallpaperscraft.com/catalog/textures

For the 1600x900 resolution there are ~1800 pictures in the category. I downloaded the entire thing and other categories besides. It makes for a nice collection of wallpapers to cycle through at random. :)
