This should be obvious, there are 4 administrators on Neowin, 2 site founders Marcel and Myself, Daniel (was the first staffer we took on and was promoted to this in early 2001) and our American investor Brad Wardell aka Frogboy
This group consists of coders and developers for all aspects of behind the scenes work at Neowin, including image creation. This group has exclusive access to our servers.
This group consists of one person, that is Marshalus. He is the voice on most legal areas and the first point of reference when contacting third parties on behalf of Neowin, he is also communications officer and has setup our Jabber system for staff Instant Messaging service.
This is now "Managing Director".

The Supervisor group was created just over 2 years ago to take the load off the admins, the staff selected (usually a group of no more than 5) are long term trusted staff. They are given administrator permissions and can make operational decisions without fear of being over ruled by the admin group. This group also has an ops forum and many decisions are talked about and decided between admins and supervisors with the help of developers.
This group is another name for "Super Moderator" meaning that anyone in this group can moderate anywhere including news comments.
This group contains staff that are usually new to the staff and have been given a specific forum or number of forums to moderate exclusively, they cannot moderate everywhere so we try to keep this group small. They also have permissions to edit News comments.

This group is our news editors, anyone in this group may not moderate the forums unless they have been given a secondary group which allows this.
This group is for IRC moderators.
This is where ex staffers go that have contributed a lot to Neowin. Not all ex staffers go here, if they leave on bad terms or simply did not deliver while on staff then they are instead returned to Registered.
The people in this group paid for additional privileges and enhanced service, or just to support Neowin financially!
