The WolfQuest Team consists of three usergroups on the community forums and two developers.

WolfQuest Community

On the community forum, there are two usergroups that represent the WolfQuest Team. These are as follows:

Members with red usernames are administrators. Those within the WolfQuest Team will use the WolfQuest Team Member rank.


Main article: Usergroups/Moderators

Members with green names are not directly part of the WolfQuest Team, but they are expected to positively and accurately represent them.[1]

Development Team

The developers of the game are accredited to Eduweb and Minnesota Zoo. This group of people are largely involved with the development of the game among other tasks.

Minnesota Zoo's role included community management, public relations, advertising the project, providing educational content[citation needed] and possibly being the lead of some events which occurred in past years (Wild Wolf EdVenture, wolf Q&A sessions and such) available on the website and other such tasks.

It is known that a majority of the game development was performed by Eduweb, such as programming and script writing, modeling, seeking funds (grant-writing up until 2011) for continued development and purchasing and implementing assets.


  • To date, only two of Eduweb's employees have actively administered the WolfQuest community forum.
    • The first known "main" Eduweb administrator was WileE.[2] It is probable that this status changed shortly after the game was released.[3] This information may be incorrect due to the limitations of what the wayback archive is able to provide.
    • The second known "main" Eduweb administrator is Dave. As of 2014, he is believed to be the current and fourth project coordinator, having succeeded Kristie.
      • As of 2016, Pepper works in conjunction with the above in a joint effort.
  • It is not possible to become a member of the WolfQuest Team Members usergroup without actually being an employee of Eduweb or Minnesota Zoo, though the former is much less implied due to Minnesota Zoo effectively ending their role with WolfQuest as of 2012.


  1. • New Moderators 24-Mar-2012Proof in an old mod application topic showing the mod expectations. These expectations have since been included in most modern application openings.
  2. As shown in an archive of the forum dated August 24th 2007. Proof.
  3. He is no longer a forum moderator at any point prior to the release date. Removal from forum moderation is thought to be due to the first batch of volunteer moderators being appointed around that time.
