    Before i get this ss, I pinned wpcentral on 8.0, and never unpinned it. I updated to 8.1 and i noticed wpcentral was transparent. I unpinned it. Changed toast notification into on and pinned but this time its just blue. I checked settings and it is in accent color mode.
    I definitely want Transparent WPCentral back :(

    You need to go to setting > live tile and pick the flip tile.

    On my L1020 it gets transparent. On my L920 it gets only a solid colour. Go figure...

    It's always been transparent for me until I turned on the Live Tile. Then it stopped being transparent.

    For now, only the pin to the forums is transparent, while my WPC Wide Flip Tile is not.

    my experience is its random. its transparent, then if i open WPCentral to read some article and return back then background is not transparent anymore. But i dont need to unistall reinstall, just wait few minutes and it returns back to be transparent again (if i keep it as is with display off, only glance, after few minutes it returns back to transparency, if i go to home screen ). Its small issue, can live with that.

    I can let you guys just on this. The new WPC app update will add support for transparent tiles. :)
