I have sad news: mastodon.technology will be shutting down by the end of 2022. Access will be restricted no earlier than December 1.

More details here: ashfurrow.com/blog/mastodon-te

I encourage you to export your data and migrate to a new server as soon as possible.

Thank you to everyone who trusted me as their admin. This was a difficult decision. I wish I could continue, but I can't.

Thanks for all the well wishes everyone. You've made this less difficult on me and I really appreciate it ❤️

I will stay on the fediverse at @ashfurrow@masto.ashfurrow.com , a single-user instance I set up with masto.host

I encourage all local users to find or create an instance, and migrate to it using these docs: docs.joinmastodon.org/user/mov

All further announcements about the shutdown will come from @announcements. Thank you again 🙇

@ashfurrow@mastodon.technology @ashfurrow@masto.ashfurrow.com @announcements I'm having some trouble moving my followers so I've had to put a profile redirect on instead. There were only 3 dang nabbit it took me a long time to get those 3!?

@flexsite profile migrations can take time. did you set up the alias on the new account to point to the old one, and then start the migration from your new account?

@announcements Yes, the mastodon.technology server is saying that my the Alias does not exist on mastodon.social, even though it does

@flexsite I did this yesterday. Put in the alias. Go grab some tea, watch a video, take some time. Come back and try again.

@flexsite try removing the alias on m.s and re-adding it. can you post a screenshot of the alias UI?
