This list is not exhaustive and only covers mods who are upfront with their credentials.

Moderators that hunt cheaters in particular are much higher rated on average and not keen on revealing their identity.

These are the mods roughly listed by the time they were made moderators:
lichess.org/@/thibault (founder of the website -- a very busy person! Prefers to delegate tasks, please do not approach him for mod stuff in particular because you probably won't get a response)
lichess.org/@/legend
lichess.org/@/Clarkey (not very active, co-developed several systems for detecting cheaters thanks to his mathematics expertise)
lichess.org/@/flugsio (more of a developer)
lichess.org/@/GnarlyGoat
lichess.org/@/Chess_Agent
lichess.org/@/arex
lichess.org/@/Spinaltap (sporadically active)
lichess.org/@/FireBreathingDragon
lichess.org/@/ChesSuxX
lichess.org/@/Unihedron (demon hunter)
lichess.org/@/bosspotato
lichess.org/@/TonyRo
lichess.org/@/ProgramFOX
lichess.org/@/MrLegilimens
lichess.org/@/erikelrojo
lichess.org/@/lovlas
lichess.org/@/RocketBabe
lichess.org/@/achja

Please do not message moderators individually to report a player. To report someone, click the report button on the suspect's profile.
