Follow

Do you lose all of your followers if you migrate to another instance?

@kyletorpey Yes. You can export your following list, but of course no guarantee anyone will follow the new account.

@kyletorpey yes. the instances/nodes are isolated. like email servers attached to an @ domain.

all messages are sync'd/federated but your sign-in is local to the instance/node.

@chaeseco seems like it could be solved with blockstack. have users be able to change their name via entry on the blockchain, each instance automatically checks the blockchain for changes.

@kyletorpey sounds like you should help contribute to the github and make masto better. :smile:

@kyletorpey
yeah, but you can export your following list and notify them to follow your new account.

@cws good point. you could just send out a direct message to all of them when it happens i suppose.
