Unofficial response: Personally I do feel that local administrators and bureaucrats outrank Staff for the most part, as they are given free rein and control over local community decisions. Staff typically don't intervene in local issues.

There are a few situations where Staff do outrank local administrators and bureaucrats. These include but aren't limited to the following:

  • When local bureaucrats request that certain extensions are enabled, or when changes to local usergroups are requested.
  • If local users (including administrators and bureaucrats) are doing things that violate Fandom's terms of use.
  • When global changes are implemented across all Fandom communities that local administrators and bureaucrats have no control over.

Other users are more than welcome to disagree with me, saying that Staff outrank local administrators and bureaucrats regardless of the situation. But due to the points that I have raised, I respectfully stand by the statements that I have made.
