@xuv Welcome to town!
@dualhammers Thank you. Appreciated.
@xuv Ah, so you are off to a new instance with a subtle change in the xuv avatar. :) Was it only the spam problem on mastodon.social, or did you simply want to experience the swapping to another instance or is the merveilles.town instance a better match to your interests?
I suppose it doesn’t have any consequences for your followers except that they have to refollow you?
@hansup Actually, it's for all these reasons. I was thinking since a while to move to a smaller community than m.s. But the spam from this week precipitated it. And the description of Merveilles.town was really inviting. Also, they have a dark theme. So that's appealing too. I'll see what happens with the followers. I guess the active ones will follow.
@xuv I see. Still, what a great thing this fediverse! If you let us, we can simply keep following you wherever you go! In the old days we would have to create another account on a strange platform...
@xuv Hello Julien! Nice to meet you!
@neci Hello Neci. Nice to meet you too.
@xuv Congrats on the move, I haven't had the patience to do this yet, I'd like to move to post.lurk but I've been teased by a potential migration feature in the future so maybe I'll just quitely wait.
@colm Oh, there is a migration feature in the works? And I also hesitated with post.lurk. There are too many good instances. :)
Pourquoi cette migration vers @xuv ?
@th Je me suis inscrit sur m.s en Avril 2017, quand un gros mouvement de transhumance a débuté depuis Twitter vers Mastodon. Il n'y avait pas bcp de choix à l'époque. Depuis, les choses ont changé et j'ai cherché à rejoindre une instance de taille humaine. M.s, selon moi, est devenu trop gros et souffre de problèmes liés à sa taille. Finalement, mon choix s'est porté sur Merveilles parce que les gens et la culture qui l'habite m'y ont attiré. :)
Merci pour la transparence.
Revel in the marvels of the universe.
