I want to support decentralisation, but I also want to have some confidence that a Mastodon instance will be around in the somewhat longer term.
Thus, I was thinking about moving to #Fosstodon. Anything to be aware of?
Turns out it might take up to 24 hours before Mastodon sees that I've linked the two accounts, so I'll try again tomorrow...
More than a week later, and #Mastodon still doesn't detect that I've set up this account as an alias for my new one — guess I'll be staying on mastodon.social for the foreseeable future :/
@vinnl hmm strange..;can you try @firstname.lastname@example.org ?
notice the two @
I've always managed to move to & from different instances without any issue...
Worth asking the servers for logs I guess? Especially mastodon.social as they are the ones unable to determine the alias.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
