1. I can see that people have been asking for the ability to - as a user - move to a different Lemmy-instance. Is this still considered? How probably is it that it will be implemented any time soon?
  2. When I create a user at an instance, I delete it, but then afterwards I want to create it again (with the same name), it says that the user already exists. Is this intentional? Will it be possible to (re)create a user with the same name after some time? Or never?

Related, but slightly different: when I DDG this question I find this post, but I cannot comment on it (because I have to sign in to that instance). But when I then search for this title in the search bar of my instance I don’t find the post?

I kind of assume the latter is to prevent identity theft. It’s reasons like these that make selfhosting single user instances appealing as you know it’s your account and you have access to the database.

I really hope commenting via Pleroma becomes a bit more viable in the near future so I can use this account mostly for cleanup tasks.

(I love the idea of Lemmy by the way, and all the people who make it happen).

Everything about Lemmy; bugs, gripes, praises, and advocacy.

For discussion about the lemmy.ml instance, go to !meta@lemmy.ml.
