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?

It's time — I'm going to try to move to #Fosstodon. Crossing my fingers that all goes well and everything transfers over properly.

In case things do not go as smoothly as I'm hoping, you can follow my new account at @VincentTunru.

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...

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

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.

@happybeing Ah, thanks, that's reassuring. I did remember reading a toot by someone running into the same, but I didn't remember who it was :)

I'll try again in a couple of days then I suppose.

You can also just export followers/followed from one account and import to the otger
