==About==
 
 
 
The following are short biographies of some of the people behind MusicBrainz. There are developers who write the software for the web site and client applications, system administrators who keep the servers running, style editors who edit the style guidelines, and editors who add to and improve the accuracy of the data itself, but all of them contribute their efforts to help make MusicBrainz work better for everyone.

==The MusicBrainz Community==
 
 
 
MusicBrainz wouldn't be the same without its user community.  See the [http://musicbrainz.org/topmods.html top editors list] for a list of people who've contributed the most number of edits. Most of these users are [[Auto-Editor|AutoEditor]]s, too. Of course, this is not the only way, others who contributed less edits may have shared their knowledge about specific artists in the database, or helped building the community, etc. Quite a number of users who have made contributions to the wiki have created their own Wiki page.
