|“||I have got the squids dumping... clean it up||”|
—Tmtoulouse, on collecting cephalopod poop.
probably the most powerful person on RW, if there is any power anywhere, since he holds the seekrit password to root access, and the server used to be hidden in a potted plant next to his desk.
He is much less active during his school terms.
He doesn't like it when people stink up the wiki with incense.
April the 1st and all that
On April 1 2009, Tmtoulouse announced his intention to retire from RationalWiki in order to explore a "new found spirituality" associated with the Biblical world-view.
Disconcertingly Not surprisingly, many of the level-headed rational drama queens at RW took him seriously and quite reasonably blamed a convenient scapegoat for his departure. Meanwhile, other users realized it was an April Fool's joke and played along, either announcing that they also intended to leave or blaming CUR for driving Trent off the wiki. 
In November 2010, Tmtoulouse became one of the first three members of the Board of Trustees along with Armondikov and Human. He remains the appointed "Community Founder Trustee" but also holds the important role of Operations Manager for RationalWiki.
