Pubs

In order to gossip outside your local network, you'll need to connect to a Pub.

You can find an invite to an available pub at the Pub servers registry.

Get an invite, then in patchwork: click "+ Join Pub" and paste the invite code.

This will cause you to follow the Pub and vise versa. If you haven't synchronized to this social network yet, prepare to wait a few minutes while your local server synchronizes.
