Folks who're annoyed about the inability to move to another instance without being able to take your followers with you:

"Account migration" has been a feature request on the Github issue list for quite a long time. github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

It is a BIG job, but it is on the list and the devs are aware of it. It could take a long time.

Clicking through to the issue on Github and clicking "thumbs-up" and leaving a comment about your suboptimal new-user experience is really helpful.

@cassolotl I hear from the grapevine that account redirection (i.e. account A points to account B in some obvious way) is on the roadmap for the next version ^^; Not sure what form it will take, though.

@Skirmisher GASP that would be VERY COOL :o
