The page-size warning appears on the edit box for every page above 32k, which is
not all that large these days; indeed, policy has revised the point at which one
should think of splitting out sections to the 50k point
It'd be nice if the edit warning were to follow suite, as it's annoying to be
working on a page which merits more than 32k but always having to be ignoring
the warning (and CSS hacks aren't any good, because what about the articles
which are above 50 or 70k and genuinely are getting too large?)
The size warning is due to browsers that damage pages at this
Those antique browsers mentioned in [[Wikipedia:Article size]] are hardly used.
There are all sorts of edge cases we could have warnings for- why must we have
warnings for these?
Huge pages are hard to read over modem connections.
Probably some mobile devices also don't like huge
pages. My antique browser otherwise can handle it,
but it won't let me add more than a few hundred
bytes to such pages - if I want more I've to go
through "preview". When I say huge it's pages like
Village pump (tech). Let's keep the 32 KB as is
for a few years.
