Being followed by a faceless and silent avatar is creepy.
Here’s my suggestion for newbies: set a picture and write at least one, preferably four posts that tell us something about yourself, about what to expect.
If you follow me, I will look at your profile and maybe I’ll follow back. But I’m not following a faceless and silent avatar.
Now... how to get this message out to newbies... 🤔

@mdbraber I'm trying some halcyon servers to connect to but I'm getting stuck after authorizing the app. Am I missing something or is something going wrong at your end? (also, not sure if this is the proper admin account for

I'm trying to recreate the fuji film simulation in my Fuji X-T1 camera. The X-E3 camera I have has it built in and I like it a lot. The X-T1 does not have it and it's very hard (at least for me) to recreate it accurately.

My previous account has been removed from my previous instance ( overnight including all my toots and media.

It's mostly the last part I'm sad about. (the export function didn't work for toots and media)

While moving to another instance is possible and fairly easy, this left a scar, especially since it's hard to show what happened. (for example to ask others if I'm being unreasonable )
