Coffee break in #Pau
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 mastodon.nl 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 mastodon.nl?)
Is there something like a 'ActivityPub account proxy' ?
Usecase: I have several AP profiles (say mastodon, pixelfed, writefreely) to which the proxy would subscribe and repost under a generic `@firstname.lastname@example.org` profile.
Users can then subscribe to my proxy to get all my ramblings or choose one of the specific profiles and I gain some flexibility in changing profiles without users being affected.
@admin I've archived my history through the API, so I don't need to wait any longer on the archive generation on todon.nl
If you want, you can suspend my account, although I'd rather have it dormant in place so references will keep working.
