The Wikimedia Toolserver is a collaborative platform that provides hosting and support for various software tools written and used by Wikimedia contributors. The Toolserver is operated by Wikimedia Deutschland e.V. with assistance from the Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. and supported by Wikimedia UK, Wikimedia Switzerland, Wikimedia Austria, and Wikimedia Sweden.

The wiki uses the MediaWiki wiki engine (naturally), but is modified with a custom skin based on the modern skin. Editing permissions of the wiki are only granted after confirming a valid e-mail address and your real name, although the account username can be a nickname. [1]

The Wikimedia Foundation (WMF), founded 20 June 2003, is the non-profit organization responsible for a very large number (over 850 in total) of very active wikis, grouped together and known as 'projects'; as well as the wiki engine software initially developed for them known as MediaWiki. The Foundations' wiki projects include Wikipedia (encyclopedias), Wiktionary (dictionary and thesaurus), Wikiquote (quotations), Wikibooks (open content textbooks), Wikinews (news source), Wikisource (free content primary and secondary source texts), Wikispecies (a free species directory), and many others as listed below. Most of these projects have separate wiki versions written in many different languages. There is also the Wikimedia Commons (for images, videos and other media files that can be used by all the Wikimedia projects), Wikidata (central space for data used on all WMF projects), and the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki (for issues common to all Wikimedia projects). Its most recent project, Wikivoyage (a 'travelpedia'), was inducted to WMF in late 2012.

Wikimedia Foundation is a member of the Open Source Initiative.
