@hamslap Because your event was attached to your individual profile, rather than a team, the permission checks for who can upload were preventing you from doing so. I've pushed an update that should fix that for you.

@kev @ubuntupodcast Ubuntu has *always* been it's own distro. Anything that hosts it's own archives is it's own distro. Even if those archives are derived from another distro.

@hamslap @switchingsocial GetTogether is meant to be an alternatie to Meetup, it's designed for the needs of event organizers, and being able to promote their events on social media is one of the core requirements we've received.

Anybody can host their own instance of GetTogether, and these sharing services can be turned on or off depending on that isntance's desires.

@hamslap Hi there, what is your profile URL? I will check on why you are still seeing the message to complete your profile.

What event are you trying to add a photo to?

@thinkMoult @Doudouosm @switchingsocial We have an open issue for it: github.com/GetTogetherComm/Get

The big question is can we get venue information to auto-fill the Place data, and what API limits are there against OSM.org

@thinkMoult @Doudouosm @switchingsocial I will warn you that we use Google Maps right now, but if OSM can provide us the same functionality and venue data we could make that configurable :)

Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!

@GetTogetherComm is a free open alternative to MeetUp.com.

The lead developer needs help with implementing federation, either coding or better documentation about ActivityPub.

There's an open issue for it here:


There's been discussion but no code contributions yet.

Can you help?

(It would be *so* cool to get this kind of service federated, imagine every town having its own instance :blobaww: )

#ActivityPub #FLOSS #FOSS

Trying out a new logo design, let us know what you think!

Many thanks to @CoralineAda and @stumpsyn we now have a Code of Conduct for both the GetTogether software project, and an Events CoC for the gettogether.community instance.

@Bubu @switchingsocial yeah, they're better if using the hosted service rather than having their own

@geekgonecrazy @switchingsocial @Bubu Running an instance of GetTogether for a single group might be overkill, you can use the free gettogether.community for that

@7usr7local @nuron Okay, do NOT interact with the bot, it's broken and just DMs you the same comment every second in an invite loop.

@7usr7local @nuron I was not aware of that, no. It's not quite the same logo, and appears to be a Facebook bot that tries to pair you up with other people on Facebook.

@7usr7local @nuron As far as I know, gettogether.community is the only instance. Of course, people can run instances without us knowing, so there might be some community out there running their own.

We host on AWS, which isn't usually the cheapest option, but it still costs less than $30/month

@7usr7local @nuron You can host your own instance, in which case you just don't set a Google Analytics ID in your settings and it won't inject the tracking script.

Individually, on gettogether.community, you can enable the "Do Not Track" option and it won't use the analytics code nor any of the social media sharing button code for pages you view while logged in.

One year ago today, the first commit of GetTogether was made. Over the past year we've grown to serve 150+ teams and 400+ events!


Come join the GetTogether.Community today!

I'm not generally a fan of giant patches, but we landed a 2,100 line PR that makes it fully translatable! You can help make it available in your language here:


GetTogether is now setup on Travis and all tests are passing. That's a merry christmas present indeed!
