Currently, wikimediafoundation.org is run as a WordPress site, which does not allow any level of open editing or transparency.

foundation.wikimedia.org is one of a few fishbowl Wikimedia wikis. This means that account creation on this wiki is restricted; however all pages on the site are viewable by the outside world, much like a fishbowl.



wikimediafoundation.org should transition to MediaWiki, to allow a certain amount of participation by all users.




  • raw HTML is currently allowed;
    • A list of pages that have raw HTML was generated at Raw HTML
  • uploading of various dangerous file types is currently allowed; and
  • the MediaWiki namespace is editable by any user.
    • Can easily be disabled by removing editinterface from the "user" group, however it may require making more users sysops, or a special "editinterface" group.

This list is by no means exhaustive. A thorough review of the configuration files at noc.wikimedia.org is needed to know what level of customizations wikimediafoundation.org has.
