GearShop page design and layout

It's nice that you have a good database for background images. But personally -- when it comes to web layout and design -- I'm always against a static and stretchable background image. Visually it's quite disturbing when you scroll down (with computer, tablet, phone // specially with touch screen devices) and when there's something stationary (eg. big background image). Instead stationary image the whole page should flow down as-is.

Regarding stretching: If you look the page with higher resolutions than 1080p the background image looses it's details: it becomes pixel mess. // the main site follows a good design: you have a pleasant background colour with a highlight on top left corner of the main layout. The pages are appealing with different devices.

My point is that I'm sure you want the pages look professional -- not cheap as you were using automatically generated web pages.

As an example you could take a look nasa web site which has a clever stationary image on the background. Or BBC who are relying on stationary banner on top:  or these sites which all have their unique and stationary look:

National Geographic (awesome design regarding bg usage)
Firefall the Game
