I just made a wall thats 1200x900. In the submission guideline, it doesn;t mention this resolution but it does say a 4:3 ration. Well 1200x900 is 4:3 so is it ok?

I do not belive so; the sizes in the submission guidelines are those that are the most commonly used screen resolutions and are the only ones that are accepted. The 4:3/5:4 ratio is merely saying which category the resolutions are in, since there are several:
4:3/5:4 (common TFT and LCD ratios)
16:9 (common widescreen ratio)
4:6/5:8 (common dualscreen ratios)
Your best bet is probably to resize to 1152x864 (the nearest lower resolution) for right now, and to design at a common screen resolution as mentioned in the FAQ for future submissions.

or go one up and go to 1280x1024 as thats a common somewhat resolution these days

But if I lower the size by a bit, wont it be blurry or pixelated? And 1152x864 does not meet the requirement because it doesnt have 1000000 pixels... the next nearest one is 1280x1024 which is pretty far...

won't it be pixelated?

If you're looking for a 4:3 standard resolution you can use 1280x960, I saw lots of wallpapers using that resolution. Anyway, resizing to 1152x864 shouldn't lead to a very notable quality loss using Lanczos algoritm (and most of programs uses it).

The 1 million pixel requirement is for the scans gallery only. The wallpaper, doujinshi and abstract galleries do not have this requirement, as evidenced by the abundance of 1024x768 wallpapers and smaller pieces of doujinshi work.
Sizing down will generally not result in significant quality loss since you are compressing the same data into a smaller image size - just make sure you are using a bicubic (or bilinear) resizing algorithm and not a "nearest neighbor" algorithm. Sizing up can result in significant quality loss because the computer must guess how to stretch your existing image into a larger canvas. That is why I suggested sizing down to the 1184 resolution instead of up to the 1280 resolution.

OK thanks for all the replies. Probelm solved.
