Please take into account that this site is still in the making. So, if your name is not listed here, that doesn't mean, we have forgotten you, it just means, we still haven't found the time to insert you here. Therefore, we apologize in advance for any inconvenience concerning this.

Further, we would like to ask you for the final name of this site: thanks, credits, hall of fame, walk of fame, site of fame etc. to suggest a few.

Many people have contributed over time to the AtariWiki. In this page, we want to thank special contributors for their work preserving Atari and 6502 Programming information.

!! Bill Wilkinson

If you don't know Bill Wilkinson, you don't know anything of Atari and OSS, not even a single bit!

[{Image src='Bill.jpg' width=869 height=114 }]

Thank you so much Bill for your life achievement, your family and the Atari community will miss you. You belong to those, who are not replaceable, we are deeply in your obligation. You and your work will last forever in our consciousness and our hearts, too. We will continue your spirit, wherever you may be now. Thank you.

!! Curtis T. 'Curt' Vendel (1966-2020)

Curt Vendel was a former Atari employee(?) and provides us with extreme rare information, files etc., who are essential for the restoration of Atari's past. Curt took personal risks to save as much original Atari hardware as possible. He saved the Atari Accountant for us, an incredible amount of source code files (still to come), Silent Butler 80 and so many ultra rare hardware, software and information, the community would be much, much poorer now without it!

!! Paul Laughton

Paul is a living legend in Atari!

!! Kathleen O'Brien

Kathleen O'Brien is the big woman in the beginning of Atari. She starts with Shepardson Microsystems, Inc. (SMI) and moved later to Optimized Systems Software (OSS). She wrote the very first Assembler for the Atari, the Atari Assembler Editor cartridge. We can’t thank her enough, for all she has done for Atari! Thank you so much.

!! Mike Peters

!!Harry Stewart

Harry Stewart has given the community such a great gift with all the source codes he provided for us, so Atari can go on forever. Harry will never be forgotten due to his work, he is already in our hearts forever. If there would be a Cecil B. DeMille Award for Atari, Harry Stewart would deserve it for sure.

[{Image src='Thank_you_bob1200xl.jpg' width=520 height=113 }]

Thank you so much bob1200xl for sharing the Basic XL source code with us! Further, the last piece of the Atari Educational System, which is now complete, not to mention all the other things you have done for the community. We will always be in your debt. :-)

!! Alfred from AtariAge

Alfred has preserved the Action! source code from being lost and shared it with us, after the OK from the creator, Clinton W. Parker. Further, he shared with the Atari community rare Action! programs, which were lost over the decades. He is vital for the Atari community.

[{Image src='Thank_you_Alfred.jpg' width=450 height=106 }]

Thank you Alfred!

!! Uwe Röder

In 1989 Uwe Röder wrote [Hypra-Soft-Basic], which was and still is the one and only Basic for Atari making reliable and mathematical correct calculations. All math floating point routines were rewritten and are the best possible condition. In 2015 Uwe Röder has given us the rights to his Basic.

[{Image src='Uwe_Roeder.jpg' width=504 height=121 }]

!! Kevin Savetz

Without Kevin many things of the now Atari community would be simply even unthinkable! Whether there is a mission impossible concerning Atari, Kevin Savetz is our "Jim Phelbs" for these very missions. Kevin has done so much for the community, he really deserves a star on the Atari walk of fame. His recent addition was the impossible to find PILOT II language. So much has to be added here, please check in from time to time to continue on this. Kevin runs a podcast: http://ataripodcast.libsyn.com/rss which is highly recommended, because all the stars from the golden age are interviewed there. Further, Kevin runs his own website: http://www.atariarchives.org/ which is highly recommended, too.

!! Allan Bushman

Allan plays a major role in preserving many Atari programs, especially those, which seem to be lost. Without him the restoration of the Atari Program Exchange (APX) would not be possible. Allan has further access to programs which are not even on the far end of the rarity list! Without his contributions the Atari community would be significantly poorer and many problems couldn't been solved. Allan please go ahead, we deeply need you.

[{Image src='Thank_you_Allan_Bushman.jpg' width=597 height=117 }]

!! Thomas 'Thom' Cherryhomes

Thomas 'Thom' Cherryhomes is a great supporter for the global Atari community. He is polymath, speaks all Atari languages, is a man of the first hour, has developed PlatoTerm and the FujiNet adapter with others, which is a milestone in Atari hardware. More to come, please stay tuned. Thom, the Atari community is very deep in your debt! Thank you so much! :-)

!! James Bradford

James Bradford helped to preserve the Atari Personal Financial Management System (P.F.M.S.) box CX406

[{Image src='Thank-you-James-Bradford.jpg' width=617 height=109 }]

!! Tomasz 'Kr0tki' Krasuski

Tomasz belongs to the irreplaceables in the Atari community, he has such a deep knowledge into the machines, knows everything of roms and especially the SALT- and OSS-roms, that makes him vital for Atari's future. Without his help a complete restoring of the OSS woouldn't have been possible. He is further the creator of [A8CAS|http://a8cas.sourceforge.net/], which helped us so much in preserving all the good cassette programs for the generations to come. Tomasz, AtariWiki wishes you from the deepest heart a long and porsper life, please stay healthy and continue your outstanding work for the community. We really need you, without any doubt. Please go ahead! :-)))\\

!! Roland B. Wassenberg

Roland is one of the main contributors to this wiki, he is tireless chasing for lost items, the 'Indiana Jones' of Atari history. Roland was essential in bringing back the Atari Calculator, parts of Action!, BUG/65 and many Atari application programs. Further, the 'Atari Educational System' program with big contributions from Allan Bushman and the complete 'Voice & Data Cassette' language program, which were never be possible without the contributions from Stefan Meyer and Peter Dell. He plays a major role in getting Atari source codes.

''Thank you Roland!''

!! all the hardware people, without them, nothing would run anymore!
