This might fix itself later, but I’m not sure why it happens in the first place.
In this post, I uploaded a PNG from a screen capture. The image shows fine in the post editor but appears broken on the blog. When I check my uploads, the thumbnail is broken there as well.
I tried to re-capture it and converted it to a JPG with the same result. Manipulating the image in Photoshop to a new PNG still fails; the image is broken. I can’t recall exactly, but this is not the first time I have seen this happening. Any idea why and how I can take a look to see what causes this?
I guess this fixed itself because I’m not seeing a broken image. There has been unusually high load on the servers over the last 24 hours, so it’s possible there was a delay getting the images up on the servers.
Last time this self-resolved as well. I also noticed the post didn’t show up on Mastodon until later, maybe for the same reason? If that’s the only reason no problem in waiting a bit, wondering if it would be possible to show a “server load” graph or similar somewhere so we know if there’s an issue it might be due to that.
Yes, we need to better communicate this. We have https://status.micro.blog but it can’t currently differentiate between “downtime” and “slow”. Actually all of the downtime reported from the last month is when things were a little slower than usual, but nothing was actually down.
