Bio: Most of the work I do on TNS isn’t seen I’m afraid to say. I have knowledge of HTML, CSS and basic PHP. I leave all the javascript and AJAX to Jake who is our resident master. Been a Sum 41 fan for a few years now ever since my Uncle brought back home Half Hour Of Power from his travels across the pond. I hail from Scotland where I sit in my castle all day long yelling at people while munching down on a bit of haggis and swigging the whisky.

Acknowledgements: Thanks to Nic for bringing me in to the TNS staff. Also thanks to Jeremy, Mitchell and Heather for being awesome. And of course, thanks to Sum 41 for everything they’ve done for us.
Bio: I’ve been a huge fan of Sum 41 from the very beginning, but that hasn’t been quite easy while living in Finland. I’ve had to travel around Europe to attend Sum 41 shows, and I’ve been lucky enough to get a chance to be in close touch with the band. In other news, I’m a huge ice-hockey fan as well. I’m a nice guy as long as you don’t act crazy.

Acknowledgements: I guess just thankful that Jake and Nic still put up with me after all these years. Still grateful that Jordan got me the opportunity to mod the media sections back in like '09. I'd also love to take this moment to thank every single active user on the website, because you guys are the reason TNS is still going strong! It's pretty great how devoted this fan base is to the wonderful band that brought us all together.
Bio: Between constant username changes and angry posts about how pointless it is to post lyrics on TNS, I'm just a college student from Michigan. I love playing Call of Duty, and watching Detroit sports on TV. I've been a fan of Sum 41 since Fat Lip was blowing up the radio, and I got my first Sum 41 CD when I was like 8 or 9 years old. My favourite song is probably The Hell Song, just because I have a thing for album openers with really sick opening riffs.

Acknowledgements: Thanks to Nic and Matt Whibley for watching/sharing my Sum 41 fan videos. I hope I can do more in the future. Thanks to everyone at TNS, you make it a pleasure to visit the site even when I have work to do. Finally, thanks to Sum 41. I had a lot of good memories listening to your tunes.
Bio: I'm Jeremy, you may know me as CaliforniaScum, JeremyDisasters or Jeremy Kill. I've been with TNS since 2007 and a Sum 41 fan since 2004. I record my own tunes under the name "My Worst Rendezvous" and they can also be found on my YouTube page. Screaming Bloody Murder is my favorite Sum 41 album and I have yet to see the band play live. I enjoy short walks to the beer store and candlelight dinners.
