I think it's about time to get a list of all that have contributed to this project of ours as staff through the years. I knew there where many, but man... The list is long. Some could be found through the forum, others through memory. several have had more than one position through the years, so we have tried to place them in the last position they had, before leaving the project.

I've made it a two part post. Current staff I will leave in the OP and our retired staff in the 2nd post, except founders, they deserve to be on top.

Many names here, with many different memories attached to them. Some have unfortunately also stepped out of time.

We needed almost the whole team to get this list together. Even some former staff jumped in to help. Hope that we can come up with some fun and nice anecdotes in the comments that you remember from our past staff. All have contributed to get us to the place we are now.

Thanks for sharing this Lolindir.

152+ people who have stepped up and contributed in a major way to the project. Incredible to see it all listed out.

Many familiar names in that list from over all the years. I'd like to extent my respect and appreciation to all those involved with this great
project which has led us to where we are today. Many thanks to all of you for your time, dedication and resolve;
and to you Lolindir for shining a light on and publishing this list, thank you.

Respectfully; Sound

Thank you to the staff, past and present, who have graciously volunteered their free time to keep the project moving forward. Much appreciated.

Wasn't the dev joker the one that stole donation money from SWGEmu? I remember the controversy about it many years ago as my donation was one small part of the donation money that he took. He should be on the SWGEmu dishonorably discharged list!

Lolindir

For better or worse, the names on this list have all been part of staff at some point. That is all this list is. Some have done a lot, others not so much. Some have done good, others contributions are more questionable. One thing they have in common, they were part of staff.

This to remember them all. As can seen, the list is long. I didn't want to sit in judgement on members of the list. If I started with that, we would start on a slippery slope.

That title brings back some fond memories of the Pre-CU terrain Kashyyyk research and development.

Ahhh those names, i think they mapped my childhood all the way since i was 16! (now 31!!). Some SWG:ANH members in there as well! I remember when the founding members were all still active at the same time (just about).

I assume the Ultyma, ramsay, Oru and TA are all still lurking around? I still have the modded loading screen with their names on it! lol.

Two other names of relative impact are Xenozypher and Joker ... I know that the two are not exactly held in the highest regard for one reason or another, but they were part of the project and did contribute. XD

Xenozypher - Early days of reverse engineering packets and writing the first core; parted ways due to disagreements on Core development I believe.
Joker - Early lead developer & scumbag who ran off with the donation bag

It's been 17 years, so my memory could be a little hazy.

Don't forget me! I interviewed and then got fired before I found out I got accepted!

I'm still waiting on that retired staff title too:

Me.

I was the first developer brought on after Core1 was made public. Also wrote Core2 (and still have it). Not sure if I should be qualified as a 'Founder', but I'm very close to that.

Also, Xenozephyr's name is misspelled.

And I'm still unsure if Joker warrants credit or infamy.

(I know a lot of details about the controversies regarding Xenozephyr, myself, and things that were going on regarding development at the time but don't really want to go into details.)

elpete was originally from Bria and his character's name was Kreetlejuice, he was a forum legend back on live and a funny person respected by both sides. Smusatto was a good pvp'er, also from Bria, who I had to fight against many times. I came back to emu too late to be able to reconnect with him. I hope they are both doing well wherever they are.

I remember helping put together this forum and new server setup...all good times even when we all didn't see eye-to-eye (we were all passionate).

I do wonder if we can rustle up some of the old lightside developers to get 1.0 closer to completion! Nice to see a few Dev names, Antman, Xeno....and short time Niffer!

Its been so long even SWGEMU memories have memories! Ha

Long live SWGEMU

Please add me to the Founding members.

Ultyma, Ramsey, TA and Oru rebuilt this community from the absolute dumpster fire that several members left it in.

Core3 literally was first public ally tested on my server, and our first online tests for SWGEMU happened from my living room.

You can confirm all of this with Oru, Ultyma, TA.

I havenít been around for a while, but you can see Iím one of the oldest members of this forum, and spent a
solid five years of my life moderating and administrating this community.

All hail SWGEMU!

Do you still have that jedi fighting video with the song "Quutamo" by Apocalyptica?

That was so hype, back then.

This is really awesome. Thank you for doing this. So many fond memories being involved in the early days of the project before we had any ability to even log in. Remember when we used to use IRC?? Feels so long ago.

That's still better than the [no answer] treatment which has become par for the course as global Internet shorthand for "your value of existence is less than or equal to zero".

This was very early Core3 Pre-ORcand testing of the first time players could connect. There was only a handful of skills that did anything, no skill training and very little else implemented. Also no shuttles or leaving the planet, also note no creature spawns implemented yet either.
