Most administrators have a blue background header. They manage and oversee the overall functionality of the site. They are also part of the moderation staff. Nazgul is the owner/CEO of Team Liquid and his posts can be seen as official statements from TeamLiquid.net; the same goes for the posts by those with the TL.net icon, although obviously sometimes they do post non-official statements in their posts.
These are senior and moderation staff. They may choose their own icons.

These are staff that have been recognized for their contributions; they may, as Red Names do, choose their own user icons.
The staff on TeamLiquid.net is split into twelve different sections, although some staff belong to more than one section. The sections are Banlings, Calendar, Casters, Coders, Graphics, Liquipedia, Replay Uploaders, TLPD, Translators, Writers, Strategy, Other and TeamLiquidPro. These all contribute to the different parts of the site.
Banlings, along with Red Names and Administrators, help to moderate the site.
Calendar members take care of the events being added to the TL Calendar so we all know what events are coming up with just a quick glance to the box at the top of the right sidebar.
Caster members help cast TL events such as the TeamLiquid Legacy Starleague.
The Coders write, test, and integrate the code for the different features on TeamLiquid.net.
Graphics, accordingly, creates most of the graphics on the site. They work closely with the writers to style news posts in a higher-quality manner than normal forum posts.
The Liquipedia staff moderate and administrate TeamLiquid.net's wiki and work on keeping the integrations between it and the main site up-to-date. The globe icon denotes a founding staff member, and the puzzle piece icon denotes a staff member who joined afterwards.
Replay Uploaders upload replays of Brood War games for your downloading and viewing pleasure.
The Team Liquid Progamer Database staff updates the results from most prize-awarding tournaments going on in the Brood War and StarCraft II communities
Translators translate Korean and Chinese texts from articles, interviews, and sometimes videos, to English.
Writers create news coverage for tournaments and various StarCraft and Dota 2-related articles for TeamLiquid.net.
Strategy writers cover analysis of Pro-Games, map previews, Pro Q&A's on balance, and guides to show you how to copy the pros.
The other section covers staff members who have certain specific roles but do not constitute having a whole section on staff.
TeamLiquidPro focus on the Liquid Pro StarCraft II, Dota 2, Super Smash Bros. Melee and Hearthstone Teams at TeamLiquidPro.com.

Forum Stars 
Not all Forum Stars are staff per se, but these are people who have made valuable contributions to TeamLiquid.net and have been recognized for it.
This is not an all encompassing list of former staff. There will also be some idea of the former staffs previous job/position on TL if the icon doesn't represent what they did.
- PoP, Carnac, IntoTheWow, Klogon, Liquid`Jinro, ManaBlue, lilsusie, riptide, EvilTeletubby and GMarshal have animated icons.
