Removing redundant rights from users

I was recently told that FAMEPedia no longer has mw:Extension:Moderation, mw:Extension:MediaWikiChat and others so the user groups like automoderator, chat moderator, moderator etc. has no effect on a user's editing. I propose to remove those rights from the users and delete those groups from the wiki. I don't know how the deletion has to be done. Ugochimobi said they can manually delete those groups (if we agree to it). Best, --Mazzaz (talk) 16:44, 15 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

i do agree we Have, too many users with extra groups i think we should delete those groups as we have restricted certain things. Cocopuff2018 (talk) 17:41, 15 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Magogre and Cocopuff2018: I'd be disabling these extensions and every other Unnecessary extensions today. Chimobi (talk) 07:21, 7 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
So, I disabled some extensions that are quite unnecessary I also found out that the mw:Extension:Moderation and mw:Extension:MediaWikiChat were already disabled, the user rights that come with them just need to be DELETED.
Extensions I disabled;
  1. mw:Extension:Translate (not needed per, our subdomain already says this is the english version of FAMEPedia, so there's no need for that.
  2. mw:Extension:ContributionScore (currently unnecessary)
  3. mw:Extension:PageNotice (unnecessary)
  4. mw:Extension:SocialProfile (Practically conflicting with mw:Extension:GlobalUserPage, but I think the Sysadmins haven't noticed yet.
Extensions I enabled;
  1. mw:Extension:VariablesLua (currently necessary)
  2. github:fuerthwiki/MobileTabsPlugin (for improved mobile experience, amongst other things.)
Thank you. Chimobi (talk) 07:48, 7 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ugochimobi, thanks. I assume I should proceed with removing the redundant groups from users. Should I? --Magogre (talk) 09:41, 7 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Magogre: Sorry for the lateness in a reply, please DO. When you're done I can delete the usergroups permanently. Regards. Chimobi (talk) 10:42, 7 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, indeed its about time we get this done, also we have users who we grant user rights to and they never even use them i think we shouldnt just grant users rights because " hey they are trusted" they should have a pattern of editing Cocopuff2018 (talk) 12:23, 7 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
