We re-introduce all the core Mod DB staff, so you know who's behind what.

Mod DB is a large site, which needs more than just a few people adding articles on their lunch break to keep it ticking over. This article is a quick overview of the important people, what they do, and whose fault it is when something goes wrong.
These people are the full-time staff who make sure Mod DB is kept running at a business, technical and editorial level.
Scott is the Managing Director of DesuraNET, and is also responsible for all of Mod DB's code. If there's a bug somewhere, it's probably his fault. Scott also manages the business and advertising side of things, something which is becoming a bigger part of Mod DB.
Check Scott's blog for insights on where Mod DB has come from, and is going to.
Behind Mod DB lies some fairly complex internet wizardry - Greg is our Systems Administrator who keeps Mod DB on the air. If everything suddenly stops working, it's probably Greg who gets woken up about it.
If you're interested about what powers Mod DB, Greg's blog is the place to find out.
All of Mod DB and DesuraNET's artwork comes from Shaun, our in-house Graphics Monkey.
The site managers are responsible for keeping the whole site running on a day-to-day basis, and are volunteers who do it for the kudos, karma and staff t-shirts. Most operational problems ultimately end up in their inboxes.
One of Mod DB's pair of Site Managers, Nick tends to deal with the community - making sure people know how things work and are kept up to date with the latest changes.
The other half of the Site Manager duo, Graham makes sure that things are being authed on time and the rest of the staff are doing their job.
Dave is our resident video wizard, and looks after things such as ModCast and Mod DB TV.
