@aral Nop, first time I get any report. When they are in black is because of the size limit of Mastodon, I know that is the way a huge image in bytes will become black.
@mastohost Hmm, odd. Happens only nearly every account I’ve tried. Using the web interface. Will try and narrow it down.
@aral I see this occasionally and explained it away as Mastodon giving users two URLs: the cached one on your server, and the original at the originating server. If your instance no longer has the cached one, your client can retrieve the original image. This is often necessary as admins clear out local caches. If the connection to the original instance is slow, or the original instance is gone, then the image remains black.
@aral I didn't notice any image fails but it could be OVH Object Storage having an issue.
Please, let me know if it repeats.
@mastohost Will do, thanks, Hugo :)
This is my personal Mastodon.
