My current problems with Mastodon/GNU Social:
1. How do I move my account between instances? Like, let's say I'm on mastodon.social but then decide I want to self-host. How do I do that?
2. No language tags. It'd be useful to be able to mark particular posts as being in a particular language. the web is worldwide.
3. How do I just get an Atom feed of someone's posts? Not advertised in the UI.
@tommorris for #3 it's mastodon.socal/users/"username here".atom
@tommorris agreed on 2. (especially)
@tommorris 1. Sadly, one will still have to register a new account somewhere else and start from scratch. However, at this moment, you can export your follow- and block-lists into CSV and import them after moving, so that your home timeline doesn't change.
2. Да, было бы неплохо. (Yes, that would be nice.)
@tommorris for number 1, unfortunately the current best solution is to just make a new account. however, you can export your follow list and blocklist, and then import them on the new account, to make the process a little easier
