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?
Turns out it might take up to 24 hours before Mastodon sees that I've linked the two accounts, so I'll try again tomorrow...
Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong migrating from one #Mastodon account to another?
Both instances are on version 3.3.0, I've added my old account as an alias for my new account, but then when I go to my old account's settings to move it, it says it's not an alias.
@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.
