What is the diff. between stewards and GS? What permissions do stewards have that GS's like myself don't? I know checkuser and oversight, but there must be others... Tau Ceti (talk) 00:51, 17 February 2015 (GMT)

Hi there Tau Ceti! Off the top of my head, Stewards have access to global accounts (locking/hiding) and the ability to change global group memberships. They can also read private wikis; if I'm correct, global sysops cannot do this. They might have a few more global-related rights, but I can't think of any off the top of my head. They have access to private information (which you already know), and that is another big difference. If someone else would like to provide a more in-depth analysis, feel free! Happy editing, and thank you for your help! -- Joe G. (Talk) 00:54.01, 17 February 2015 (GMT)
To expand, Stewards have the power to control every wiki, and every user on every wiki. They have access to the private wikis and and deleted information, and control users locally or globally at once. GS's only have limited admin rights on every wiki which allows them to access deleted edits and log entries, block users locally on any wiki, and a few other bits. They cannot change user rights unless they have the local sysop right, nor can they access private wikis without the proper rights.—cyberpower ChatOffline 04:06, 17 February 2015 (GMT)
