I saw someone say Krita is on Mastodon now, but didn't link the account.

I've done a search in multiple clients and see that there are two accounts that look the same, both are krita @ mastodon.art.

Which is the real Krita?

(Attached a screenshot from Tusky for reference.)


@garrett ... hang on, user names are case sensitive?

@theoutrider @garrett They're not, but I've noticed Masto and its clients seem to forget that sometimes. 😕

@Jo @garrett I'm extremely confused by the part where lowercase-krita has the URL misspelled in the profile bio while uppercase-Krita does not

@garrett @Jo lowercase and uppercase have separate IDs on mastodon.social/web/accounts/ so I think mastosoc actually thinks they're two separate accounts

@garrett @theoutrider Maybe @Curator tried to fix the capitalisation?

Even so, Masto (the software) should have probably accounted for case insensitivity.

@thegibson @garrett @theoutrider @TheGibson Yeah, both versions of your username show up as separete accounts in the web interface but both link back to the exact same profile page.

I'm guessing an assumption was made about how URLs were handled and it was wrong. 😕

@Jo @garrett @theoutrider @TheGibson Yeah, I've brought this up a few times... not sure what can be done to fix it.
