Longtime readers of my blog will know that I was on Mastodon and then didn't log back in for a long time. My instance (mastodon.cloud) was sold? or was given? to a new Admin so my account was suspended and I couldn't reset my password. I reached out to the current Admin via email and he/she said that they cannot restore my old account but could delete it and create a new one with the same name.
I decided to ask them to simply delete that account and I would create a new account on the OG instance at mastodon.social/@cdevroe
I have no specific plans to use this account other than to keep up with what is going on in the Mastodon world. But if you feel like connecting there please do.
