If you check a website, like, Ask Ubuntu, you have the following background:

Ask Ubuntu

However, on Code Review, you have the following:

Code Review

Would be nice if the background was the same, nice, tiled version :(

    \$\begingroup\$ It seems to be sized differently for each site - perhaps it's intentional? BTW, the screenshot on the Meta.SE post shows a unicorn, but I don't see that on any site. I Want My Unicorn! \$\endgroup\$ Apr 1, 2019 at 10:24

    \$\begingroup\$ I got my unicorn - you need a window width of 1401 or wider, in keeping with late 1990s sites that assume particular window sizes... \$\endgroup\$ Apr 1, 2019 at 20:54

Code Review's gargantuan tiles were inherited from the following style rule in the site's theme:

body {
    background-size: 280px 503px;

I guess it's technically fixed now but we won't fix it and we can't reproduce it so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
