What is Foolsaurus?

It's a glossary of investing terms edited and maintained by our analysts, writers and YOU, our Foolish community.

Active TMF staffers

This page intends to list all active existing online staffers of The Motley Fool, both employees in Alexandria or the UK, as well as our strollers, hosts, contractors, article writers, etc. etc. -- anyone whose screen name includes "TMF" (which lets you know they are a staffer).

Expanded Definition

There are hundreds of TMFers in the Fool universe.... To help clarify, here are several of the roles that merit a "TMF" handle:

Full-Time Employees
These include all in-house advisors, analysts, editors, and general Motley Fool staff

TMF Community Team
Focused on facilitating both the asking and answering of questions, promoting cooperation and respectful communication, and sharing their knowledge and insights on investing and our universe of stocks.

This includes our team of full-time freelance writers for Fool.com -- people like TMFCop or TMFBreakerRick

The Never-Completely-Comprehensive Alphabetical List of Active TMF Staffers

For each of these we include the TMF name, their non-Fool name (otherwise known in traditional circles as their "real name"), a short job title (we're not really big on job titles at The Fool but this short line is intended to clue you in on the TMFer's main focus). Once we have member pages (in development now), we'll also have a really handy link right to that Fool's member page.
