File compressionEdit

What's the point of compressing some of the screenshots I uploaded if you're only knocking 3 KB off of a 930 KB file? Joe Copp 13:48, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

Probably none, I took a bunch of images off of Special:Newfiles then compressed them and mass re-uploaded. I didn't watch every image being compressed because there was 148 images getting compressed at once, I'll keep my eyes out in the future

I suppose you can keep doing so, but you don't have to go through all that work for such a minuscule difference. Joe Copp 14:19, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
Once i get pywikipediabot i can get le bawt to do it :D! -KATANAGOD
But is there really a point if the difference of file size is so small? Joe Copp 14:32, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
I suppose not, but if a bot's compressing images automatically It shouldn't be an issue. -kat
Makes sense. Joe Copp 14:34, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
