Checked Fediverse Observer and whole bunch of server has been decommissioned because of which users can’t login and because they can’t login , Lemmy is losing active users. Any plans to fix this ? I am more concerned about the content thats lost.

    Aren’t images propagated to other instances as well? Wasn’t that the issue with the illegal content a couple of months ago where instance owners had to go and purge the images themselves even if it was only posted on one instance?

      Instances copy images locally to avoid overloading remote instances. For instance I have 16GB of pictures and videos stored even though I only posted a few pictures.

      I was under the impression that only thumbnails/lower res copies were federated, rather than the full high-res original - if that’s changed then that’s great 👌
