Since the revival of a couple of months ago, the existing profiles have had no federation with diaspora pods that were previously connected with. This is unrepairable on my end, and since the only non-bots that ever log in are @Alien (A23P) and myself, I'm considering ending the Friendica node. Thanks to Mike's work updating the diaspora plugin, I currently use my Hubzilla powered channel to connect with diaspora folks. Alien has been using his old diaspora account and I haven't heard any complaints.

@Alien (A23P) - I'm going to leave this up to you since I'm torn. Now that I know how to keep Friendica stable, Do you wish to create a new profile at or move on? If you choose to move on, just let me know when you have your data backed up and I'll shut it down.

  • VERY much thanks for the heads up.
  • As you noted, I'd also noticed that while I was pulling from Diaspora, none of my comments or post were actually hitting out to Diaspora.
I absolutely have USED & ABUSED the ability to save and categorize post and comments on Friendica, and it in many regards became a personal library for me. In fact, I still continue logging into it for that one reason alone.

But man...... ever had one of those moments where you just want to fall on the floor screaming in denial..... "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!?"

I suppose that's about my feeling on seeing your post here, but alas, I can not deny the logic of your rational.

I'm in travel currently and have a few music gigs left to knock out before I return to a state of relative calm. So would just like some time to wrap those up and things, and then I'll take making sure I've backed everything up and what not (MUST PRESERVE THE LIBRARY) and then * le sigh *......

We do have the 'Export personal data' option. I bet that export could be imported to a newly created profile on the same server. I'll give it a try someday when I'm not super busy.
