Most people in the database will be listed as uncredited, because entering credits is a pain in the ass. I checked the first two and found credits for them on MobyGames. In fact MG has two Arlo Evans pages.

Maybe we should turn this into a project to update these people with the games they're credited in.

Weird that they all have "Evan" in there somewhere. I fell like an opportunity was missed because there's no "Evan Evans"

If I have time later, I'd like to do that.

That's a lot of Evan.

I've updated Evan Williams but opened a Pandora's Box of credits. I don't have time right now, but I'll look into contributing more later.

Done Flower through Olson.

This is hilarious, cause I can just imagine some dude combing lists of game developers for "evan" and then not bothering to list what they've done, lol. How does someone make such a list anyway?

Yes, as it has already been stated if you find people in the database with zero credits they probably do warrant being in the database but no one has added the games they are credited in. When the site first launched every person that existed in Mobygames' database was in our database. The thing is none of the pages had any games attached to them. The problem is that because adding credits is unintuitive and does not really reward that many points no one does it anymore.

@ZombiePie: I see. I did not know that (I haven't been 'active' for too long)

Thanks for the clarification!
