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.

    In that case, how often is the lemme community updated on the kbin instance? Does it download updates every time the user visits?

      My understanding is that instances have worker threads that continually pull new data from linked communities (the ones at least 1 person is subscribed to). It should be almost instant but recently it’s sometimes delayed due to huge influx of traffic.
