 Right after the intro people move to the table and topic of their choice. Don't worry if it gets a bit chaotic for a few minutes. Each table opens with a more specific introduction before installing, configuring and using the different tools.

-Let's assume your city does not have a page. Create one for the whole city (e.g. "https://cryptoparty.in/gotham"). That's where the information above goes. Locations or parties should have separate sub pages. This allows others to organize parties without having to create a second version of the city page. You can help creating a good default page by copying from others, adjusting to your needs, and giving feedback on what could be improved on other pages as well. Please add your CryptoParty dates to the [[:parties:upcoming|global dates list]](([[:parties:upcoming|list of global CryptoParty dates list]]))  even if you don't use the wiki as your main website.

 Outreach helps you to make it known that a CryptoParty is happening. First you need to think of your "target audience". That would be people not encrypting anything yet.
