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.

It does beg the question: is bringing your followers to a new instance even relevant if they aren't also on that instance? (Mastodon newbie here)

@Eenewton @chuckwendig Yes! Because anyone can follow anyone else on any other instance.
