When an organisation such as Charcoal is maintaining several large projects with many people involved, it can get confusing over who you should ping for help. Welcome to the one-stop shop for all your answers when it comes to getting in contact with the right people.
Just ask in Charcoal HQ! There are always lots of regulars there willing to answer your questions. We also have a wiki for SmokeDetector, and instructions for FDSC which will answer many of your questions for you.
First, put your idea out the folks in Charcoal HQ. If there seems to be a general consensus that it is a good idea, make an issue on the appropriate GitHub repository so that it is easier to track and makes it harder to forget about it.
Ping whichever of the following people happen to be in the room at the moment: Undo, ArtOfCode, angussidney, Thomas Ward, hichris123, Andy, ferrybig.
Ping ArtOfCode or Undo, they do most of the development on metasmoke.
Ping one of the authors of the userscript, ArtOfCode or angussidney.
Ping one of the authors of the userscript, J F or Glorfindel.
Ping Cerbrus, the author of the userscript.
Look in the source code of the userscript on GitHub, the author’s name can be found in the metablock at the top of the file.
J F, angussidney, and ArtOfCode are the primary authors of the website.
If you find a post that needs moderator attention in general, please just flag it on the site. However, if you need to speak to a moderator about something specifically Charcoal-related, these mods should be able to help you.
This page has a list of people who speak languages other than English.
First of all, check that Smokey isn’t responding to any commands. You can also try rebooting Smokey from either SOCVR or Tavern on the Meta, more often than not Smokey has just lost connection to CHQ. If all else fails, please ping one of the people with a bold name on this list, they will be able to start a backup instance of SmokeDetector.
Ping one of the Room Owners, they will calm down the situation and take further action if necessary. If someone has violated SE’s Be Nice policy, you can contact any diamond Moderator.
Please ping an admin: Undo, ArtOfCode, hichris123, angussidney, or Andy.
Ping Undo, ArtOfCode or angussidney, and they will give you push access to the repository to add your US. While you are waiting, you can make a pull request to add the userscript to the repo. Don’t forget to leave a message in CHQ to let people know about it!
Just make a pull request to one of our repositories on GitHub, and one of the maintainers will review your code and merge it in. Note that some projects have Continuous Integration (CI) tests that needs to be passed before that can happen.
