Mastodon isn't sustainable.

Even on what is mostly a single-user instance like mine it uses around 10GB of disk space per month. The database stores 348.389 statuses.

If we want Mastodon to succeed, we have to solve this.


Scare tactics aside, there is some discussion on GitHub about this and the consensus seems to be that removing remote content after a certain time could work.

But this is a pretty hard problem that can affect all mastodon users and @Gargron himself has said that he needs help figuring out what to do.
