This page is severely outdated. If your name's not here, trust us - it's not out of spite, this page is just going to take a lot of editing to be worthwhile.
A thought - there should also probably (at some point) be an "Content Credits" page which associates particular pieces of 2D, 3D and Musical art with their creator (I suggest indexing by artist).
