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) ?
