Well that whole straightforward move process was not straightforward at all and just meant I lost the 116 followers I build up.
Try and do a "Profile move" and it tells me I need an "alias" setup. Try and create "alias" to the new account and that just results in error (yes I tried lots of times).
So in the end I try a Profile redirect. That works… now I have no followers. FFS
I also exported the list of people *I* was following and it was 170 people. On importing this to my new account, how many people am I following? Well it ain't 170 I can tell you that. Seriously… this was shit? I will not be suggesting anyone else move. Apparently new users just have to pick their instance correctly the first time… urrgh!
Ok the inability to setup aliases is this bug
Without an alias setup, you cannot do a move. Thus in the stable version right now, you cannot do a move unless you already had an alias setup from a previous version.
It is all working now and all followers are migrated! Thanks @mastohost
