@tsturm The option isn't on the Import/Export screen, it's under Account Settings -> "Move to a different account"
@readsteven Ah. I didn't see that yesterday. I wonder what happens to people who are now already following the new account AND the old account.
I hope I'm not crossing the plasma streams there. 😅
@readsteven Huh. Cool - this actually worked. Thanks for the tip! It's weird that this is not mentioned in the import/export page of the account settings.
@tsturm You're welcome!
You're right, it should be exposed a little better. I'm not sure how I even stumbled upon it. (I haven't moved account yet, but knew it has been an option for about 6 months.)
@readsteven Now I have to do that one more time... the Western Quakes bot is hosted at mastodon.cloud - for the later Japan Quake bot I started out on botsin.space, so only of them is impacted.
@readsteven OK, the bot has been moved, too. I'm now pretty much completely off mastodon.cloud within 20 hours of hearing of upcoming trouble. Didn't lose a follower or any of the people I'm following on two accounts.
Mastodon's federation is actually pretty cool!
@tsturm Glad to hear it works as advertised! (Lets hope all admins give notice before shutting down their servers.)
Everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct! Thank you. Mastodon.cloud is maintained by Sujitech, LLC.
