The Site Admins
Mafioshi, is now responsible for updating and enhancing YoshiArt.com with fresh new content, adding to existing sections of the website and creating new sections. He also manages the Art Gallery section. (Mafioshi has since retired).

All three are partners in the YoshiArt Project, dedicated to the same mission: Making YoshiArt the very best home on the web for Yoshi fans everywhere!
Many people have contributed to YoshiArt over the years, providing us with many new cartoons, comics, wallpapers, MP3s, etc., and also helping in other ways. Below is a list of as many of those names as we can remember. If you've contributed and your name isn't on here, please contact me, and we'll put it right!
Dino Dude- Dino Dude took care of the YoshiArt.com main site in Soul's continuing day-to-day absence in late 06' to mid 07'. He also contributed the first part of the rare Super Mario Anime. He took great pains in testing alternative forum systems, and in finding and testing forum converters. He has donated server space of his own, and also served as administrator at the forums for a time. During the Holiday Season of 06', he organized YoshiArt Forum's first (and hopefully not last) SECRET SANTA project, in which members of the forum were paired up, and were to exchange different forms of Gifts to each other.
