The Wikimedia Steward Wiki, more commonly known as Steward Wiki, is a private MediaWiki site controlled by the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF). The purpose of the wiki is to allow very specific users with global steward permissions across all WMF sites to have a workspace to collaberate and discuss proceedings. The wiki is completely private except for the Main Page, due to the fact that sensitive information regarding check user and Oversight tools, both of which stewards have access to, are often included in the wiki's pages. The Steward Wiki is not unified as part of WMF CentralAuth, and therefore global accounts on public wikis like Wikipedia cannot be used to access the Steward wiki. Only select accounts can be created by site administrators, and accounts are only given to users with global steward access. Jimmy Wales, the founder of the WMF, also has access.

Its sidebar contains a section titled 'Stewardry on Meta', with links to the Meta-Wiki for the Steward handbook and Admin activity review. It also contains 'Help and coordination', with links including: Steward elections, internal procedures, global IP block exempts log (GIPBE log), proposals, open cases, and meetings.

Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. (WMF), founded 20 June 2003, is the wiki company and non-profit charitable organization[1] responsible for a very large number (over 900 in total) of very active wiki sites, which are grouped together by primary subject and known as a 'project'; as well as the wiki engine software initially developed by themselves, known as MediaWiki. The Wikimedia Foundations' major wiki projects started with Wikipedia (encyclopedia), and subsequently expanded to include Wiktionary (dictionary and thesaurus), Wikiquote (quotations), Wikibooks (open content textbooks), Wikisource (free content primary-source 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 site versions written in many different languages. There is also the Wikimedia Commons (shared repository for documents, images, videos, and other media and text 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 Wikimedia Foundations' global reach is nurtured in its Incubator, where all new language versions for all projects are initiated and developed before being launched as a new separate wiki site. The Foundations' 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 (OSI). Furthermore, the Wikimedia Foundation is a United States 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, granted April 2005, and headquartered at 1 Montgomery Street, Suite 1600, San Francisco County, State of California 94104, United States of America.[2]
