    Thanks for your input.

    If you read regularly, I understand that that can be a lot of information, and that’s why we put it last in the blog post. However, we also need to take into account that people reach this blog post coming from Twitter, a search engine or any other means, and in most cases they don’t have any background information about Mozilla Hacks Weekly or the Developer Engagement team (the team info is only included in the Mozilla Hacks Weekly blog posts).

    So, having it as one big footer to the blog post is, for now, the compromise to tend to all kinds of targets. Any suggestions of other ways of achieving that is welcome! Thanks!

    I love Mozilla Hacks, but putting the bios of the development team over and over again and again on Planet Mozilla for every single article from Mozilla Hacks is just unreadable. I understand that people are worth acknowledging, but it seems superfluous to acknowledge the whole team for every article.
