I haven't been able to connect to Mastodon cloud from home in months... For some damn reason (the Gothenburg city net have caused issues before)

So if I'm quiet that is the only reason


@ohyran I've switched as well, and I have not regretted it for a minute. Finally the local timeline is really interesting, and the server is very well maintained. I've had frequent connection issues on mastodon.cloud, but hardly any on fosstodon.

My problem is mainly that I have certain things outside of FOSS I like to keep tabs on, plus restarting an account.... gah
(I snagged @ohyran of course anyway :) )
I'll check into it, btw is there someway to track GNU social accounts too?

@colomar @ohyran I switched a few months ago, and totally agree about the Local Timeline finally being something I want to look at. Plus the server has been rock solid and works with Tusky on Android. 10/10, would switch to fosstodon again.

@mhall119 @colomar
Yeah will have to do a round-up of the people I want with me
The issue is that I would mostly use the federated timeline
(Also you cant follow Gnusocial accounts from there for some reason, although that may be just me)

@ohyran @colomar You can export your list of people you follow from the old account, and import them into the new one. Sadly that only works for people you follow, the people who follow you will need to follow your new account manually

@ohyran welcome to Fosstodon, your friendly FOSS community within a FOSS social network! So meta, much geek, wow!
