I've been building a Facebook Events style event organizing system for the Fediverse. It's based on the simple, open source, privacy-respecting event organizing tool https://gath.io

Please help those servers grow by spreading the word about them! (And if you are interested in starting a new server, you can do that too!)
The new ComposeUI is magic!
We've added some new features like:
- Camera Roll
