Do any instance admins know how to undo an account set as a memoriam?
I was curious about it’s exact functionality as it doesn’t appear to be documented anywhere and now the user account I tested it on is locked out.
I’ve tried various options using tootctl commands (activate, unblock etc) but the account still can’t be logged into.
Pro tip: don’t set a Mastodon account as a memoriam if you ever want to gain access to it again 😂
@alan Ugh, sympathies! My pro tip, aimed at Mastodon developers is this: comment your fucking code, and provide adequate external documentation so that people don't need to be asking these questions.
@alan have you tried tootctl creating a new account with the same username) using the "--reattach" flag?
It worked for me to recover an account that was deleted (which doesn't release the username)
@M0YNG No, I haven’t but that sounds like something worth trying. I’ll give it a go and let you know if it does anything 👍🏻
@M0YNG I finally got around to trying this but received: “The chosen username is currently in use. Use - -force to reattach it anyway and delete the other user”.
I wanted to avoid actually deleting the other account but I think it’s the only option.
