Hi again rodents,
I don’t know if this was already answered; seems like it hasn’t been asked here on lemmy, but due to slow internet I can’t properly check on github right now.

I tried manually pointing to a community but I got the name wrong and the request hung for many seconds (up to 30-40 seconds, I think), before giving me back a 504 Gateway timeout.
At first I tought it was due to my connection, but then I tried querying with the right name, and the initial response was way faster than before.

I tried again with another community. Same behaviour.
Oddly enough, the behaviour follows when trying with usernames.

I loaded the Deep Space 9 instance and did the same magick trick. I again got the same behaviour.

Is it how lemmy is supposed to handle an inexistent entity or is it a non-implemented feature (or a bug, idk) ?

Sounds like a bug worth bringing up with the devs. It sounds like the site keeps trying to find the search term but keeps failing to bring it up (because it does not exist). Then it probably just keeps trying until it hits a timer of some sorts lol.

Tought it as well, but I didn’t have the necessary stability to confirm the behaviour (something was clogging the beep-boop pipe where I live).
I also tried searching on github and gitea for an issue of sorts, after the network stability was restored, but I didn’t find anything.
Still, I’m terrible at seaches sometimes.

I actually noticed the same problem earlier today, and opened an issue here: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy-ui/issues/71

I loaded the Deep Space 9 instance

Wait, there’s a DS9 instance of lemmy?

Yes, though it and the other instances named after star trek are just for testing federation.
Here they are: DS9 , Enterprise , Voyager

Ah, that makes sense. I’ve read lemmy’s just rolled out its federation so I was wondering how come there’s already an instance for such a relatively narrow topic.

Also, ha, I get it, testing federation. Nice.
