It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to run this wiki. We are lucky to have the best staff team a wiki could ask for to run our wikia. With the admins making sure every page is in tip-top shape and chat moderators making sure all of our wonderful members are getting along, there is always something new. Here you can get to know who is in charge and a bit about them.

Administrators

Adthinsp

Not a lot is know about Adthinsp other than he was the first admin of the site. His last known visit was in April 2007.

Goldenbear

Of our oldest admins, Goldenbear was the most active. Despite the spam, he went through the Wikia page by page and made the site worth fighting for. Without his brave efforts, the Wikia would be little more than a haven for spammers and other ne'er-do-wells bent on causing mischief. It is on his original rule system that our current rules are based. Unfortunately, due to computer problems, Goldenbear took month long leaves from the site and this is where the spam crept in. Without a leader to organize and control things, the Wikia soon fell into chaos. But it wasn't that way for long. It was duing one of these free-for-all periods that ZEM requested adminship. Then we had two semi-active admins and the site really took off from there! It is due to these same computer problems that Goldenbear has not been active for some time.

ZEM

ZEM is one of the oldest active members of TTTE Wikia. Although he did not create the wiki, he changed a spam filled website into a reconized database on all things Sodor. He is known as our fearless leader, and as been with the wiki as we expand. He is currently working on bringing TTTE Wikia into the social networking age through Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Thomasfan

Thomasfan is another "old timer" (if you say 4 years is old). He is defiantly a valuable asset to the wiki. He goes through all the edits once a day and makes sure they are in perfect shape. Because of Thomasfan, we don't have to worry about spam build up as he will make sure vandalism or spam is gone within a day. He is also willing to lend a helping hand when needed, especially to our new users. He also tries to keep the Wikia up to date with the latest features available to us and has written the better part of our current rules (with help and approval from the other admins of course). While he doesn't come onto the chat box as often as he'd like, he's always up for a good discussion - especially in the subjects of religion and politics. (That's something you don't want to find out the hard way!)

Victory93

Originally going by the username "Vitas", Victory93 is also an admin on the TUGS Wikia. He asked ZEM for admin rights at the time when ZEM was requesting bureaucratic rights so as to make Thomasfan an admin. Unfortunetly, he is no longer active on this wiki.

SteamTeam

SteamTeam is one of the most important users here when it comes to content. People always say "A picture is worth 1000 words". Here at TTTE wiki we take that to heart. SteamTeam as taken the time to upload hundreds of high quality screenshots from TTTE episodes and specials. Without SteamTeam's dedication and hard work, the wiki would be a dull website with nothing to look at.

NOM

NOM is ZEM's brother. By Thomasfan's request, he was made an admin. He is a big fan of pigeons and raises them as pets. He is no longer active.

Chatbox Moderators

Oliverandtoad13

Better known as Richie, Oliverandtoad13 is one of the senior members of the wiki. Even after 2 years, you can still find him updating information, uploading high-quality screenshots, or simply enjoying a discussion in our chatbox. He is our resident expert on British steam, and is the user we turn to if we need a lecture on steam railways. Richie is also renowned for his love of his home country, England, sharing his love for indie-pop music and comedy shows to anyone who will listen, and is famed for his non-existant temper fuse. Recently Richie has been able to have numerous interviews with key people in the production of TTTE.

SkarloeyRailway

When SkarloeyRailway first joined the Wiki over two years ago, he found he had much to learn and was even banned for a week for spamming! ("I didn’t know the Smudger rumors were lies!" he swears.) Now he is an active and helpful contributor to the Wiki. He is a great guy to have a chat with, so if you catch him on the chat, say hello! Known as SkarloeyRailway01 on YouTube, SkarloeyRailway is the creator of the famous Wooden Railway Series which is currently in its fourth season. He has made a wide variety of remakes from the Railway Series and TV Series alike. So check them out!

Toby7

Toby7, who also goes by Toby or Sean, was only a member of the wiki for 7 months before being promoted to Chat Mod. He could often make 100 edits a day (much to the nusiance of Thomasfan) but they were all in good intentions. Toby7 can be found closely monitering the chat, keeping all of the users in line. He often takes the duty of welcoming new users, and making sure they know the rules inside and out. Toby is also our resident Plastic Paddy. Even though he is a 5th generation Irish-American, he probably listens to more Irish music than any other 1st generation!

Jamesis5

James is key member of the team when it comes to spam prevention. Since the chatbox was introduced in Summer 2011, it has attracted many "spammers" who wish to disrupt the chat for whichever reasons. Fortunetly, James has been able to handle the spam on the chat with great intregity. James has been able to hunt down duplicate accounts to find who is trying to get around there ban. One of the more political members of the wiki, James always stirs up active discussions in the chat box. It is also good to know he his extremely proud of his Scottish heritage. You certainly don't wan't to find that out the hard way! As of August 2012, James has taken leave from the Wikia for an unknown period of time.

Lbbrian

Well known for his early Trainz videos and Wooden Railway series on YouTube, Lbbrian (also known as Matt) is one of the chat mods here on the wiki. He joined the chat back in the Summer of 2011 and was active on the chat ever since. As the months went by, he eventually became a chat mod. Matt makes sure that there are no spammers or trouble makers on the chat whenever he is on. He's friendly with most users known well to him in the TTTE community. Matt is also known to have a massive collection of merchandise from both the US and UK. Matt is proud to be a staff member of The TTTE Wikia and a member of the TTTE community as a whole.

CalleyFan

The wiki's boldest Chuggington fan, CalleyFan keeps in contact with and sends video reviews to the Chuggington producers and production team, who usually (if not always) respond. Though loving Chuggington, Calley is also a massive fan of Thomas and Friends, with over 300 wooden trains collected over an 11 year period. He is an extremely active member of the chatbox too, making sure all is in check. Outside of the internet and Thomas/Chuggington, CalleyFan has multiple projects in the works, such as an animated series due to be released on iTunes. He has also released an eBook on the Amazon Kindle platform.

SodorProductions

The newest member of the team, Sodor Productions (usually goes by Jim) has a long history in the TTTE internet community. Although he is the newest chat mod, he has been a member longer than any of the others! A knowledgable, and undoubtly friendly user, Jim is also quite the colorful character. He has numerous fan-fictions on other sites. The way he writes them would make any Awdry proud. However, it wasn't his writing that got him the promotion. He is able to keep a mature converstation going with anyone without ruining the laid-back atmosphere of the chatbox that we are so proud of!
