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 also seems like fosstodon.org needs to be made an alias of social account, not the other way around
@olamina Yes, I entered my current account's password.
I also tried adding the new account as an alias of the current one, but that didn't seem to matter. It also says "To move from another account to this one, first you need to create an account alias", so that seems to imply that it's the new account that needs to have the current one listed as 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.
