It says “both admins and/or bueracrats.” Can we remove the “both”? It sounds wrong. Gale5050 Complain about me! 22:57, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

I changed the wording to make it more clear. Is that satisfactory? — Capitalis quadrata Y.SVG (talk) (contributions) 01:58:04 2020/09/17 UTC
@Y: yes, thank you. --Gale5050 Complain about me! 13:28, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
@Y: actually not all admins are checkusers, can we say some? --Gale5050 Complain about me! 14:28, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
@Gale5050: All admins (and bureaucrats) actually do have checkuser rights. For some reason or other some administrators were granted specific checkuser-roles, which actually meant and did nothing as the administrator-role already comes with the checkuser rights - these roles were removed earlier today once that was realized. Sorry for causing some confusion regarding that on my talkpage. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Zzz...morning? 15:47, 17 September, 2020 (UTC)
@Cat the Colourful: I see but what do you mean checkuser specific roles? --Gale5050 Complain about me! 16:14, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
That people can be granted checkuser rights with a specific "checkuser"-role, like Alvgjerd has. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Zzz...morning? 16:23, 17 September, 2020 (UTC)

Hopefully I can clear this up: there is a page on here called Special:UserGroupRights. This lists every specific right (ability) that each group (like admins, bureaucrats, etc) has. The "checkuser" right is inherent to all administrators and sysadmins, so they do not need the "check user" group, considering they already have those rights from being administrators or sysadmins. The "check user" group (listed here) is for people entrusted with the checkuser right but who are not administrators nor sysadmins. Hopefully that makes sense, let me know if not. — Capitalis quadrata Y.SVG (talk) (contributions) 17:15:23 2020/09/17 UTC

Ok, but what about privacy polciies? Gale5050 Complain about me! 01:14, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
If you're referring to privacy for check users, users are only allowed to make check user requests with a valid reason, and we have a log of all check user requests that have been performed. — Capitalis quadrata Y.SVG (talk) (contributions) 01:17:32 2020/09/18 UTC
The WMF has a policy of where only users indentified can be CUs, such as wp: User: Ponyo. Do they have to be indentified to the Uncyclomedia Foundation? Do they also have to be 18+? Gale5050 Complain about me! 01:19, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
No, we do not have those policies. — Capitalis quadrata Y.SVG (talk) (contributions) 01:21:24 2020/09/18 UTC
Our policy is that we sell your data to the lowest bidder and our underage anonymous admins know where you sleep. --EMC [TALK] 01:47 Sep 18 2020
@EMC: WHAT??!!!? Shouldn’t that be in the terms of service?!? Gale5050 Complain about me! 11:51, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
