Just 10 easy steps to onboard someone new to SSB to the #darkcrystal prototype! Phew.

  1. Install Patchwork on your computer and open it.
    installers here: https://github.com/ssbc/patchwork/releases

  2. Make an identity (name and avatar)

  3. Click "join pub" top left, and enter this code: [invite code]

  4. Wait at least two hours for syncing.

  5. Follow some people. Put these ID codes in the search box, and click "follow". Follow anyone else you see whose posts you like, too. [list of people's IDs]

  6. Subscribe to some channels. [list of recommended channels]

  7. Explore the network!

  8. Close Patchwork (sometimes things don't work with two SSB clients running at the same time).

  9. Install Patchbay on your computer and open it.
    installers here: https://github.com/ssbc/patchbay/releases

  10. Type /dark-crystal in the top right box to open Dark Crystal

Thanks @alanna

Will come back with some thoughts!

TL;DR if you have a room of people on the same wifi, then you can just consider the room the universe and just connect with the people in the room. That way you don't need to sync!

This has draw backs, but is a quicker bootstrap which might be suitable for some workshop settings :D

@dan

Also, @alanna if you are also in the room with people and they connect with YOU, then you don't need to worry about the pub stuff as your computer will communicate your subjective map of the ecosystem and tell them where to find pubs and will also tell pubs where to find these new people...

So, to summarise your instructions are spot on and excellent for someone you are getting to join the network who is not in the same room as you. If you are in the same room, then it is probably like this:

  1. Install Patchwork on your computer and open it.
    installers here: https://github.com/ssbc/patchwork/releases

  2. Make an identity (name and avatar)

  3. See [person] in local network and add them.

  4. Add [person] (in background Wait at least two hours for syncing)

  5. Follow some more people. Put these ID codes in the search box, and click "follow". Follow anyone else you see whose posts you like, too. [list of people's IDs]

  6. Subscribe to some channels. [list of recommended channels]

  7. Explore the network!

  8. Close Patchwork (sometimes things don't work with two SSB clients running at the same time).

  9. Install Patchbay on your computer and open it.
    installers here: https://github.com/ssbc/patchbay/releases

  10. Type /dark-crystal in the top right box to open Dark Crystal

It's less confusing if you first watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMoodiD0UEI

I forgot how sweet Captain Planet was. Why isn't this being broadcast 24/7 on every frequency?

@Alanna

Yeah this was for the guy at Ledger, who is on the other side of the world.
