Help: Who to ask
Who to ask - General
This help file tries to advise who to ask about bugs in general code.
It is important to ask the right people about bugs. Coders do not
know how other coders code is done internally; also they can't
fix others' code without hours of investigation; and that
would not be polite. Arches can fix/disable anyone's code if they see
it absolute necessary.
First thing you should try when looking for help with something is the
newbie or wanted channels, see also 'help when to ask a wizard'.
Tell or mail these people if you have something to ask
or you notice 'bugs' in the following subjects. (See `help who to ask
about guilds' or `help guilds' for guild related issues.)

Most of the time coders are very busy. We have lot of things going on
and we can't/won't interrupt our doings everytime someone has something
to ask. Use mail for asking things, or post to bugs or ideas-wanted.
Also note that most level 150-199 wizards know (or can find out) how
a specific part of the code works, so you may want to try with such
a wizard first, before bothering an archwizard.
