Possible Permission Change wiki

Is there any chance we could get the below permission set to "true", this would then allow member to use off site images and save the fleet storage for other items. This is to do with the wiki.

Code: Select all
$wgAllowExternalImages

Possible Permission Change wiki

Postby Williams » Sat Apr 05, 2014 1:47 pm

To be honest, my instinct reaction would be that this wouldn't be the best thing to add to the wiki. Firstly, our current anti-spam methods restrict the number of URLs allowed on pages, which would severely limit the usefulness of this change. There are also the sections of bandwidth theft and link rot mentioned in the article you posted about to consider.

As for fleet storage; to be honest this isn't a current problem with our hosting (hence why we are able to offer hosting to sims in the fleet). We have a significant surplus of storage space, which is also expandable should we ever need more
