We tried this a while ago, but it didn't work right. My hope is that is does by now, as this extension can be very useful. We can try it again.

Not to mention it's marked as "experimental", which Miraheze understandably has jitters about.

Yep, that can be an issue, but testing it can still be done, it all depends on maintained status + expermental, if also less-then-active in maintenance and expermental, I would decline for sure, with more strict maintenance status then say a stable extension. All depends really.

Their GitHub project pages suggests that it works fairly well, I think:

While this has been in active use on star-citizen.wiki for over a year, I still deem this somewhat experimental, as many edge-cases (may) remain.

Upon file upload this extension creates a WebP version of the uploaded image.

If an WebP file exists, and the browser supports WebP images, the link for the current image is changed for the webp version.

Hi,

I would like to start by apologizing on the project's behalf that your task was not resolved within a reasonable time. The community has now decided via RfC to merge with WikiTide and former volunteers will be returning and new ones will likely join. An event such as this one is unlikely to occur again.

Since your task has been opened for a long time, please let us know if (1) you still need it to be done or (2) if it's a bug: if it's still occurring.

NOTE: This is a mass message and not specific to any particular task.

Hi,

Since no response to the latest question has been received in a while, we must assume that this task is no longer needed and will now be closing it as Declined. (This is simply to indicate to us that the task was not done)

If you still need this task and are able to respond, please feel free to reopen this task and indicate that it is still needed and we will start working on it. I would like to apologize once again for any inconvenience caused by this task not being resolved within a reasonable time.

Reception123

I am rather busy as of late and did not have time to participate on Phabricator or Miraheze. I remembered this task existed when I received an email about it. I believe this extension would be useful as Miraheze as a whole so I still think it should be enabled, however, I do not have any use for it as the project I created (genshinimpactwiki) has been abandoned.

Universal_Omega subscribed.

I am reopening as I want this on MH myself, however we did try it once before and it had technical issues. The extension is already approved though if it works.

@Universal_Omega Why don't we enable it at mirabeta and see what happens?

I am going to go ahead and decline this as I now enabled something in Cloudflare that will load images as webp to the browser when it can making this unnecessary snd prevent us having to store webp versions also.

Thanks for the Cloudflare change, that is still pretty good :)
