|Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2017 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").||Other ways to donate|
The OEIS Community
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.
The People Who Keep the OEIS Web Site Running
David Applegate, the webmaster in charge of day-to-day operations.
who helped NJAS set up the initial version of the On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences in 1996.

The Principal Editors
dedicated and unpaid Editors-in-Chief and Associate Editors.
This is very hard and time-consuming 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!).
