We've resolved a partial outage: We weren't receiving media forwards from other nodes due to a full disk partition. The cleanup cronjob had an error and we weren't seeing it. We've corrected that error and are working on better monitoring. You might see a bunch of media forwards from your friends as their servers re-send them. Thanks for your patience! <3
