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...
Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong migrating from one #Mastodon account to another?
Both instances are on version 3.3.0, I've added my old account as an alias for my new account, but then when I go to my old account's settings to move it, it says it's not an alias.
@vinnl I think I had that when I moved one of my accounts. The other just worked but one insisted the alias wasn't.
I retried over a few days. I messaged the admin. Never got a response. But then after about a week it worked so I don't know if that involved some intervention or not.
