The Wikimedia CheckUser Wiki, commonly referred to as the WMF CU Wiki, is a private MediaWiki site controlled by the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF). The purpose of the wiki is to allow users with the check user permissions on any and all WMF wikis to have a workspace to collaborate and discuss proceedings. The wiki is completely private except for its Main Page, due to the fact that sensitive IP address information is frequently posted on the wiki's pages. The CU Wiki is not unified as part of WMF CentralAuth, and therefore global accounts on public wikis like Wikipedia cannot be used to access the CU Wiki. Only select accounts can be created by site administrators, and accounts are only given to users with CheckUser access on at least one public site. Jimmy Wales, the founder of the WMF, also has access, as do the WMF Ombudsman Commission members.

The Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. (WMF), founded 20 June 2003, is the wiki company and non-profit charitable organization responsible for a very large number (over 900 in total) of very active wikis, grouped together and known as 'projects'; as well as the wiki engine software initially developed by themselves, known as MediaWiki. The Foundations' major wiki projects include Wikipedia (encyclopedias), Wiktionary (dictionary and thesaurus), Wikiquote (quotations), Wikibooks (open content textbooks), Wikisource (free content primary and secondary source texts), Wikinews (news source), Wikiversity (open learning community), Wikispecies (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 (shared repository for documents, images, videos, and other media files), Wikidata (central space knowledge base for data used on all WMF projects), and the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki (coordination of issues common to all Wikimedia projects). The Foundations' global reach is nurtured in its Incubator, where all new language versions for all projects are initiated and developed before being rolled out. Its most recent major project, Wikivoyage (a 'travelpedia'), was inducted to WMF in late 2012.

Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. is a member of the Open Source Initiative.
