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.

      Did you configure the pictrs API keys for Lemmy and for pictrs?

      If they’re not configured then I could see Lemmy not even using pictrs.

        Ohh!!
        That’s what’s happening, I haven’t uploaded any pictures so I didn’t noticed, aside from that I’m not sure what are the other use cases of pictrs

          Don’t quote me on it but I think it, besides handling image uploads, caches thumbnails for link posts.
