Thank you, so far, I have taken a few different things to see what might be doing. I took my follow list on mastodon.art and imported it onto the one account that exists there, and it seems that has helped with some stuff.
It’s not consistent with regards to how an account gets handled on a given instance, but things are a bit better now.
The instance I have setup is https://mastodon.openpsychology.net/ and I’m not sure what I have for logs, or even what to look with to try to find those logs. Nginx doesn’t seem to have any problems which it sees as problems. Ie. there are no errors to speak of. Other than that I haven’t tried to find logs, as I think it would be in something like “syslog” so would need to have some idea as to what to grep for.
Still none of the follows (from last look, I need to look again) are showing up on my instance.
Again, thank you.
