Introduction to Participating

Hi! So you’re interested in being “part” of Charcoal. That’s awesome! While we don’t like being too nitpicky about who our members are, it’s important that everyone is on the same page when it comes to what we do and how we do it.

So, consider this short series of documents your official unofficial training. Have a read through them, and talk to someone in Charcoal HQ if there’s anything you don’t understand or if you still have questions. Don’t worry if you’re still not 100% sure of everything - you’ll pick it up as you go.


Just so we’re clear on this - there are no minimum participation requirements for Charcoal. I know being linked to an intimidating series of documents kinda brings that feeling with it, but rest easy. You’re equally awesome if you handle 1 spam post a month or if you handle 1000. This introduction series is just making sure we’re all doing it consistently.
