wle_2024_cz campaign uses a huge image wasting bandwidth resources
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

In my browser, I got displayed https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:CentralNoticeBanners/edit/wle_2024_cz which loads a 7MB (sic!) image file from https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/ad/WLE_CZECHIA_2024_banner2.png which wastes my money on a metered connection (plus it looks rather ugly to watch it load from top to bottom).

Do most people have an 8000px wide screen and super fastest internet these days and I am just behind?

Heads-up to @Janbery per https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/CentralNotice/Calendar

I've edited the banner to use a 1280x80 thumbnail of a jpeg version instead, which is 45 kB.
