I was wondering whether the (delete-rootuserpages) permission was needed to perform certain functions if the user already has (delete-usersubpages). I know that as long as the user has the (delete) permission, they do not need to have either permission. Lately I created a test group on a site and assigned the (delete-rootuserpages) and (delete-usersubpages) permissions separately.

I've been able to find things that the (delete-usersubpages) permission can do that the (delete-rootuserpages) permission can't do. But I haven't been able to find things that the (delete-rootuserpages) permission can do that the (delete-usersubpages) permission can't do. I was wondering whether my findings regarding these two permissions are correct.

delete-rootuserpages lets you delete the page [[User:Username]], whereas delete-usersubpages only lets you delete e.g. [[User:Username/subpage 1]], [[User:Username/subpage 2]], etc.

If you have the delete permission, you are correct in that you don't need either of the other two.

Weird, I thought that (delete-usersubpages) could be used to delete the page [[User:Username]] as well.

So is this what you're saying?

(delete-rootuserpages) = Lets you delete [[User:Username]] but not [[User:Username/subpage 1]]

(delete-usersubpages) = Lets you delete [[User:Username/subpage 1]] but not [[User:Username]]

Or can (delete-rootuserpages) do what (delete-usersubpages) can do as well?
