I started to add a staff/credits paragraph on some articles. I feel it has been missing from the wiki (and I'm certain many other people will agree). If you see a game page that you know has credits, do not hesitate to add them.

here are some examples:
http://bootleggames.wikia.com/wiki/Sheng_Huo_Lie_Zhuan#Credits (Chinese credits with translation)
http://bootleggames.wikia.com/wiki/Zhan_Guo_Si_Chuan_Sheng#Staff (I decided to capitalize their last name. Good or bad idea? especially when it's available, unlike quite a few games…)

I also replaced/rewritten some unclear position because of bad wording.

Here is an example with Decathlon (C&E):
Original:
Code:
 
PRODUCER: MR.KUO
EXECUTIVE PRODUCER: JACK
ORIGINATE WITH: BIRD
CHARACTER DESIGN: TASMIN
GRAPHIC DESIGN: SCORPIO

My attempt:
Code:

Decathlon-gameplay
High Jump Gameplay
Character designer: Tasmin

Main programmer: Danny

I'm still unsure about where to put in the article, right before trivia feels OK except for very long credits such as Decathlon (for example).
Suggestions welcome.

I'd say for cases like Decathlon you should leave the credits the same as they are in the original game, aside from fixing capitalisation and spelling mistakes. Your interpretation of the titles might not be what they intended, it's better to leave it as-is and leave the interpretation up to the reader IMO.

I definitely think adding credits is a good idea though.
