@strypey the nice thing is that event federation is cumulative, so if instance A importing events from instance B, and then instance C imports events from instance A, C will also get the events from B, without having to import from B.
@strypey event data is federated, but it directs you to that event's instance to do things like RSVP, which means you need to create another account in that host. So it solves the discovery issue, but not much more than that at the moment.
@strypey it sounds like you changed the timezone on the Place object itself, which I don't think will trigger the same logic to keep the displayed time the same
@strypey asking users to add individual events isn't a great experience. Right now one instance can subscribe to *all* events on another instance, making it to to reach instance's admins who to syndicate from. I could add a way for people to request new subscriptions though.
@strypey GetTogther has a syndication feature, where one instance can import event data from another for discovery. But it doesn't allow a user account on one instance to rsvp or comment on another instance yet, that would take significantly more refactoring on the backend.
@strypey GetTogether assumes that any event created for a team will be in the team's city's timezone. If you created a personal event (no team) it should use the timezone you set in your user profile.
When adding a Place with a different timezone, it *should* adjust the stored time on the backend so that the displayed time doesn't change (i.e. if it was 2pm UTC it would become 2pm local time). If that didn't happen for you, that means we have a bug somewhere. Can you file an issue on github?

If you like Mastodon and want to see it succeed and replace Twitter, you need to support your instance too.
By helping pay for the hosting and maintenance of your instance you will not only make sure it can keep running, but you also give the admins a reason to ensure that it's run and moderated to your liking.
If you're an instance admin, let people know how to support you.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
