Just curious as to why each of you don't claim credit for your riddles as in having the writers name on the riddle. Is this because people get to know your strengths and weaknesses through other sites or you don't want us to be able to blame you for a particular headache we are suffering Wink ?

There are a couple of reasons.

First and foremost the whole thing has been a team effort. So even if one person came up with the original idea, that has quite often been modified by the others.

Secondly, we want to avoid giving away extra clues if people get used to styles. If you know who set a particular puzzle, it's possible that you may approach it in a different way as you've got used to how the setter thinks. That's especially true if you've worked with the setter on other contests.

Thirdly, of course, we're all just very modest.

Fourthly, as you pointed out, you don't know who to blame!
