@hikerus Yeah. The site where I had my GS account is malfunctioning and the admin is missing. I am tired of having to move too often without any data portability. I decided to give up on #fedgroups which is the main thing I'll be missing. If not, I'll have to resub to all of my contacts, and rejoin/recreate all of my groups manually.
Mastodon provides a one-click export and import of subscriptions. But I am yet to go through the list of GS contacts and add them here.
@hikerus I am well aware of the technical issues (and the logical ones too). You are correct.
When I started migrating I tried using a new username. But there is a *human* factor too. This is the username I am familiar with. Let us hope that GS and Mastodon will support nomadic identities, some day.
@hikerus For now I did the best I could do: make an announcement on all of my old accounts and requested my subscribers to purge all the old subscriptions. Some might miss that notice. But that is life. I am sure I will get around to let them know. I am not the only one using the same username across several federated sites.
