Pixelfed is too centralized around pixelfed.social.

I will be permanently closing registrations once it reaches 10k users and work on solutions to encourage others to start instances! #pixelfed

@thegibson pixelfed is surprisingly light, .social uses only 13 gb for 33k media (images and video) and that includes the database size!

@dansup

surprising.

so a 250 GB SSD would go quite a long way...

@thegibson Yeah, remote media will be proxied by default.

An 8mb image gets optimized down to 230kb on average!

@dansup
with Mastodon you can clean up remote media so less disk space after some days
If your instance only takes 13gb for 10k users, hmm, maybe I get one up
@thegibson

@dansup so what so you see storage requirement look like?

I would self-host most likely.

@thegibson It really depends on what limits you set.

You can set a max number of users, storage limit per account, max photo size, max album size, and more!

@thegibson I haven't checked the docker file yet, in the near future it will be officially supported.
