When I first joined micro.blog the account name I would have liked to use, @peterw, was already taken by someone but looked dormant. I use peterw in other places so I’m quite happy that @manton introduced a process for accessing inactive accounts. So it’s goodbye @meandering and hello @peterw.

@lucasfreeman I sent an email to the help@m.b contact and Manton set the process off. Email to the account holder in case they still want it and if no response after five days it frees up. I patiently waited the five days with fingers crossed then went into my account details and changed the username over.

@annahavron I'm going to break the news careful so I'm not savaged. Change of routines are carefully approached!

@peterw While micro.blog/peterw works, I still need to go to meandering.micro.blog to access your subdomain—which redirects to journal.meandering.space. So the transfer is not yet complete, since peterw.micro.blog gives a "not found" for me. I suppose it means your old handle is still in use and can't be grabbed by an imposter. At least, I hope it does.

Also, on mastodon.social you are known under your old handle @meandering@micro.blog. It seems propagation of urls and usernames are a bit flaky.

@renevanbelzen Thanks for that, I hadn’t checked the url so I’ll sort that out or email help if I can’t. Priority was to switch the account name once it freed up so nobody else did and now the other bits can catch up. I don’t use that fediverse name and forgot it’s there so I’ll deal with that too.
