I kinda feel like Mastodon shouldn't break completely just because media uploads are failing

@noiob yeah that seems bad and absolutely not jortage's fault
especially since wasabi breaks all the time lol

@zoe also honestly I see no issue with linking to the original instance until it's cached

@noiob i see no issue with linking to the original instance why is it not an option

@zoe a small instance would be hugged to death by hundreds of users loading the images instead of tens of instances

@noiob okay then: why is something like jortage where instances can pool media not standardized

@noiob okay but like, single user instances definitely do not need that much overhead

@zoe definitely true, maybe not-caching should turn on with the single-user switch

@zoe honestly there's a ton of overhead to be saved on a single-user instance, since public timelines are basically useless on there

@noiob fork of mastodon/glitch oriented at single users, like how Misskey has Dolphin
