The examples used here aren't the best examples. Here's what I think they should be:

  • [[File:Filename.suffix]] to use the full version of the file
  • [[File:Filename.suffix|200px|thumb|left|alt text]] to use a 200 pixel wide rendition in a box in the left margin with 'alt text' as description
  • [[:File:Filename.suffix]] for linking to the file without displaying the file
  • [[Media:Filename.suffix]] for linking to the plain file rather than the file's page on the wiki

Whaddya think?

Memory leak.

What is a memory leak? Can someone explain please?

When MediaWiki tries to resize a huge file, it uses more memory than our servers allow a web process to use. That gets interrupted and shows a 500 error.
