Looking to maybe self host my own instance, I’m still learning about the fediverse. If a different instance that I federate with hosts something illegal are there risks to me? Is anything from other instances hosted on my server like a copy of it? Or would I only end up hosting things my users post? I’m paranoid and sorry if this is a silly question.

    I also have around 3GB used for pictrs and I’m not really sure the best way to see what all content is in there.

      Yeah I haven’t uploaded any images on my instance myself. So none of those images are mine. Might do some reading tomorrow and see if there’s any mention of this in the past on other communities. It’s not an emergency but I’m curious.

          I had found an old post which indicates that post thumbnails are cached. So I guess there’s that.

          In case you didn’t see it, the OP of this thread realized they didn’t setup their pictrs API key… so I guess it’s possible to omit that and lemmy should still work. Not sure about the downsides.
