In a humble attempt to bring even more unheralded people from behind the scenes, this patch updates the description of the Support Staff [1] list to include links to some plain, but more complete lists.

This task depends upon

I agree, the currently displayed wording (which by the way for some reason differs from the text in the repository) gives the impression that the list is complete, while it's clearly only an arbitrary selection.

Oops, the lists of forum admins and moderators are not public, they are accessible only after logging in. So the two links should be probably left out... Or are there other options? In the meantime, there is an updated patch without the two links to forums.

I have submitted the patch as a pull-request on github for visbility.

Thanks Morten, are we supposed to add more comments here or on GitHub?

Anyway I'm just mentioning that things changed a little through the years, notably now 1) all wiki admins are mentioned in the Support Staff page, and 2) we have a unified ArchWiki:Maintenance_Team page rather than two like the PR still says.

I can probably update it a little bit and fix the links. I think we can take rest of the discussion on github :)
