Hello there. This is a weird one, I’ll try to be as brief as possible.
So I noticed this unusual behavior when following some public accounts :
- I follow the person with the appropriate button, which changes color
- I refresh the webpage, the “following” “people” icon turns to the hourglass one, as if the account was private and had to validate my follow, except it’s not
- And I can’t see any update from the followed account
As I said in the title, this only happens with specific instances (catboy.cafe, mastodon.art for example). They are not blocked, and they did not block mine either. No problem of the sort with following people on newer instances for example. I tried with several accounts on my instance, none could successfully follow. It’s just so weird, I don’t even know where to start looking. Any suggestion is welcomed !
