Ranks are roles given to users that give specific permissions to users with them.
All users can make edits and pages regardless of having an account or roles (unless blocked). Their contributions use an IP address instead of a name.
This applies to all registered users. They can make userpages (including user CSS/JS pages), use Special:Preferences, and upload files.
Users who are confirmed, by an autoconfirmation process of the wiki, can move pages, bypass CAPTCHAs, and edit semi-protected pages.
All staff ranks have all of the permissions of the group(s) below them.
Staff users who can protect pages, edit protected pages, patrol pages, mass replace text, delete pages, and roll back edits by one user to a specific page, among other things.
