<p>Thanks to federation it is easy to follow both people on the same server as you and on different servers. However, following someone on a different server requires a couple of extra clicks.</p>

<p>If you're on one of the <i>Quitter</i> servers (or any server that uses the Qvitter plugin) there is an easy way to do both. See {LINK:remote_follow_qvitter}.</p>

<p>You are now following that person. Notices that they post from now on will now appear in your Home timeline. If someone else on your server was already following them you might get some older ones as well.</p>

<p>Qvitter has a handy shortcut for following people regardless of whether or not they're on the same server as you. Hover your mouse pointer over their name. A popup will appear. Click the <em>Follow</em> button.</p>

<p><i>Note: This is not the usual way to follow someone but it's a technique some people find convenient.)</i></p>
<p>You can initiate a remote follow directly from your own server. To do this visit <tt>/main/ostatussub</tt> on your server. For example if you are logged in to quitter.se you would go to <tt>https://quitter.se/main/ostatussub</tt>. You will get to a page with an error like this:</p>
<a href="{RES:manual-confirm.png}">
<img src="{RES:manual-confirm.png}" alt="First page of the ostatussub confirmation" class="figure" />
</a>
<p>Enter a profile address such as <tt>https://quitter.no/doctorow</tt> and click <em>Continue</em>. You will jump straight to the confirmation screen as shown above.</p>
