Neil J. A. Sloanestarted collecting sequences in 1964, exactly fifty years ago. During these years, probably ten thousand people have contributed in one way or another to the database. Although it is impossible to thank them individually,
this page serves to list a selection of names, especially people who are active in the OEIS community today.
Special thanks toRuss Cox, who essentially wrote all the software that makes the OEIS work so well, and
David Applegate, the webmaster in charge of daytoday operations.
Thanks also to西蒙·普劳夫, coauthor of theEncyclopedia of Integer Sequences(Academic Press, 1995), who helped NJAS set up the initial version of theOnLine Encyclopedia of Integer Sequencesin 1996.
Some of the Main Contributors
Between 1996 and 2010 nearly 6000 people sent in new sequences and updates to the OEIS when it was on NJAS's home page at AT&T. Since 2010 when it became a wiki, over 3000 people have registered with the OEIS. The following is obviously only a fraction of them, listing just a few of the
main contributors. The full list of currently registered users can be seen在这里。

The Principal Editors
The work of processing submissions to the OEIS is carried out
on a voluntary basis by a group of dedicated and unpaid主编和副主编。 This is very hard and timeconsuming work
(as NJAS knows only too well, having handled the
first 180000 sequences himself) but the reward comes from seeing the creation of a
beautiful new entry. And, often enough, from discovering a new sequence that one spends
a day or six months thinking about (that is the real reward!)。
The following are some of the most active current (or recently current) editors.

The Sequence Fans Mailing List
The main mechanism for keeping in touch with members of the OEIS community
is the
Sequence Fans Mailing List, moderated byOlivier Gérard。 This is the place to ask for help in calculating
a sequence or finding a formula, reporting troubles with the web site, etc.
As of February 7 2014, there are eleven (unpaid) trustees.
