I… what?! These two things combined make for a pretty terrible user experience when you run your own Mastodon instance 😕


How to like somebody else's toot:

1. Click on them
2. Go to the original profile (separate website)
3. See a toot you like
4. Click like
5. Copy link
6. Go back to my instance
7. Paste link
8. Wait for toot to load again
9. Click like

I am using @Tusky, but I guess any other application would also make the oh-its-a-different-server experience transparent.

For a desktop I would recommend @elk
