@manton@micro.blog

It seems my old alias @jlg@micro.blog is still haunting the servers there and not allowing @starrwulfe to do its thing. Any way y’all can clear that up or is that just cached elsewhere? I can’t seem to get a profile for starrwulfe.micro.blog in any ActivityPub client.

@starrwulfe You will probably need to reset the old ActivityPub profile in Micro.blog. Click Account → Mastodon Details and there’s a button there to delete the old username. Things do get confusing when a username changes right now, sorry!

@help I already have, months ago. Not sure why it’s not working now.

@manton @help If I search for my microblog @-@ handle in the fediverse, there's no post history, is this normal? I follow a few other fediverse folks here, but I can't seem to interact with their posts; I can't reply to their threads, nor can they find any of mine.

@starrwulfe If the user has never been loaded on that fediverse instance, it's common for it not to have the posts yet, but going forward it should receive new posts. I'm looking into whether we can improve this or whether it's a limitation in Mastodon as well.

@help This also happens whenever replying to a thread too; lt looks as if I didn't do anything at all, which of course isn't the normal Mastodon way-- they somehow "force" their way onto new servers. I recall BridgyFed having this same issue; perhaps @snarfed can shed some light on how he got it to work?
