Please consider participating on building a new "HQ" sending in your model / experiences!

Any help appreciated!

Anyone here ready to delete their Facebook account? I walked away last fall. Here is the link (which is not easily found on FB - big surprise!) facebook.com/delete_account

Bryan Lunduke's message to Mastodon developers:

"If you're listening, we need an ability to move between servers & migrate an account between servers where people who are following that account get updated in some way to follow it on a new server".

The issue was such: mastodon.rocks went down. Lunduke lost all of his account data with it being the most followed (4000) person on that particular server.

How to address this problem?
