Description

Special:NewFiles, category galleries and similar image pagers have a high chance of running into the thumbnailing service's rate limits (50 queued files, with 4sec max load time each) This has been addressed in large part by lazy loading the images on the page, but people are still running into T266155 quite regularly.

It might be worth it to add a javascript page to these pages to catch img loading errors, and schedule a single retry for these img loading failures after they failed.
