# Smelly and Pingable people

We have a bot that helps you ping people in the classroom.

The command !!/help will provide the following:

!!/people <all/unpingable/pingable>
all - Lists everyone who is in the ping index
unpingable - Lists everyone who is in the ping index and is not pingable
pingable - Lists everyone who is pingable
!!/ping <username/@username> <msg> - Pings <username> with <msg>
!!/help - Prints this help page
!!/alive - Says "I'm alive" if the bot is alive


These are largely to help you determine who can be pinged from the classroom at the given moment.

• All hail and thank @thesecretmaster for creating Smelly. – Ben I. Mar 9 '18 at 20:59
• If I understand correctly, someone who is "pingable" is someone I can ping directly with the @user syntax. Someone who is "unpingable" cannot be pinged that way, but can be pinged with the !!/ping <user> <msg> syntax using Smelly. Correct? – Gypsy Spellweaver Mar 22 '18 at 13:44
