Looking for someone to encode your latest TAS efforts?  This page lists members of the community who are capable of encoding to the [EncoderGuidelines|site's standards], and the platforms they are willing to encode for. Active Encoders tend to lurk around the [IRCChannel|IRC Channel], if you wish to find one. 

''[TODO]: add more people to the list!''
