I am originating a new usage of the ✅. I hope it catches on, because in a sense it's mostly used this way now.

As portability is currently quite limited, the checkmark now indicates that I am actively using that instance, and that my other nonchecked instance identities are hibernating.

@five I already took it off again because thought being Unverified is cooler, but this is actually a good way of using it. *hat-tip*

@tim large motivation was the ongoing joke where new users think it's real and old ones play along, kill a couple birds with one stone

@tim EVENTUALLY I want to see a field in the same location (or so) that replaces the long @[name]@[instan.ce] shit with an indicator of Primary/Active and Instance. Top populated instances could get a simple color or something. (Planning several steps ahead here, for when I type, say, @[bob] and get three or four choices, ppl jump btwn instances, etc)

@five You can just use Identifi to tie up a bunch of IDs to a single login. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But yes, needs work.

@five If identi.fi wasn't buggy atm, I could already demo it. Would need more work of course, yes.
