The Wikimedia Toolserver wiki was a collaborative platform that provided hosting and support for various software tools written and used by Wikimedia contributors. The Toolserver was 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 used the MediaWiki wiki engine (naturally),[1] 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. [2]

The Toolserver has been closed down on 1 July 2014. Please use Wikimedia Cloud Services, or more precisely Toolforge. On MediaWiki.org you can find a collection of issues after Toolserver shutdown.

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.
