Can you guess when was a link to one of my projects shared here on fedi yesterday?
Seriously, we're getting close to having a true "Fediverse effect" (c.f. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slashdot_effect ).
@rysiek @Gargron I guess it's safe as long as we're talking about a few hundreds in few minutes, not seconds. And even then disruption will be only temporary. But if it is really a problem, maybe it's worth to report an issue? Fediverse probably could somehow fetch preview once and share it internally.
This is a brand new server run by the main developers of the project as a spin-off of mastodon.social It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
