Did thumbnal images disappear for anyone else?

I noticed yesterday there seemed to be fewer and fewer thumbnail images appearing on the front page, and today there seems to be almost none at all. The ones I have seen so far seem to be from posts on this instance only, but I can't confirm that with certainty yet.

Sorry if this has already been addressed anywhere, I took a look around before posting and couldn't find anyone mentioning it. Is this happening to anybody else?

It's highly likely this is happening due to @ernest working on this aspect currrently. He said as much yesterday, so it's probably only temporary.

Seems like posting a link will not retrieve <meta property="og:image" content URL (image) anymore?

Can confirm, using Firefox Linux.

Hmm, haven't heard of that distribution before.

Firefox on Linux, as for the distro it's openSUSE.

I think the issue is that they don’t seem to be generating for links right now. I mod a few magazines and it seems true regardless of the URL source. Presumably this is why less show up on your feed.

Sounds like Ernest is working on this aspect of the site right now.

Yup, can confirm the same on PC Firefox. Ernest is probably working on it. He also probably needs help.

Same here. Using PWA on Chrome for Android.

Ya know, I thought something felt different when scrolling lately. This is it! Yeah the thumbnails are absent for me. Using the PWA on Android Firefox fwiw
