For people looking for an alternative to Facebook events that isn't spammy like evite and the like, I recommend checking out gath.io

It requires no login, basically you provide an email address, you get a unique editing URL, you make a nice looking event form, and people can RSVP there. Your event and all related info is deleted from their DB 2 weeks after the event is over.

@darius I wish it wasn't giving up every time I tried to upload a photo tho

@hope Huh, what browser are you on? It has yet to fail for me...

tech 

@darius not working in FF or chrome. the image is only 4.5 megs so I wouldn't expect it to break badly enough to send me to a bad gateway page when I save changes

tech 

@hope ah. is it 920x300 or less like it asks for? I'm only attempting photos of about 500kb

tech 

@hope hmm though I just uploaded a 20 MB photo and it worked.... weird!!

tech 

@darius hmm. Cutting this one down just worked too. ugh. haha. Also my flowers are all artifacty now. ugh.

@hope Yeah. I mean this is one guy maintaining and running this on a tiny server so I understand why he needs to mega-compress all images as much as possible.

@darius I wish I could host it!

Also I just realized you can't RSVP with a number - everyone has to individually mark themselves as going or just comment which seems like an easy fix maybe I'll suggest.

tech 

@hope Yeah there is definitely room for easy improvements like that!

tech 

@darius It is odd though that you could upload a 20mb file and I just tried with a 2mb one and got the same bad gateway :eyethink:

tech 

@hope Yeah I'm wondering what the deal is there....

tech 

@darius wait just checking did you actually hit save and see the image on the event page? cause it does let me drop an image in the box but when saving is when it blows up

tech 

@hope Yeah I did create a page successfully, I actually dropped in a giant uncompressed GIF and it turned it into a small PNG

tech 

@hope okay I tried a 1900x16000 10 MB image and got the bad gateway!
