I noticed today that images on a very long pages may fail to load (thumb border is present, however). I have already contacted Wikia, but I want to know if you have experienced this as well. It's happening to me while logged-out. Final Cannon Dyskusja 22:06, September 21, 2012 (UTC)

No, this hasn't been happening to me. Love and Lust 22:28, September 21, 2012 (UTC)
It's probably Wikia's new lazy-loading system, images will not load at all until you scroll them into view. If your browser experiences a JavaScript crash then it can prevent the images from loading. There may also be glitches if you scroll the page really fast (AFAIK images load in order of viewing, if there are a lot of them then it may take time for the software to catch up with wherever you scrolled to). If the images are big then there will be a significant delay between scrolling them into view and having them actually load completely. Lunarity 01:08, September 22, 2012 (UTC)
I also think that this is likely to be the cause, so the bug should probably be reported using Special:Contact so wikia staff can improve this feature. -452 02:34, September 22, 2012 (UTC)
Ah, now I know what's going on with slideshows.--PedroM (talk) 10:08, September 22, 2012 (UTC)
