This is a workpage... Workpages are pages that are under development by Administrators (Sysops), or contributors who are assisting us by improving the web site's function and ease of use. This workpage should be considered informative, rather than authoritative, unless and until it is adopted by the Administrators; as such, only Administrators should remove a workpage tag. Unlike Articles that need to be expanded, which are Scouting-related (and located in the main namespace), workpages are geared toward MediaWiki and located in other namespaces, such as, Help:, Template:, and MeritBadgeDotOrg:. Even so, you are welcome to help us work on this page. If you prefer, you can present your ideas on the talk page. Thank you -- The MeritBadgeDotOrg Administrators

User rights (or, permissions) available in MediaWiki

Allows users to read pages (not in $wgWhitelistRead)
Allows editing of any page which is not protected
Allows creating normal pages
Allows creating talk pages. Note that edit = false prevents creating talk page regardless of this setting.
Lets users change the title of a page by moving it
Lets a user delete a page
Lets a user view deleted versions, undelete a previously deleted page, or undelete specific revisions of a deleted page
Lets users lock a page (presumably only those with the ability to protect a page can edit a protected page)
Enables a user to block an IP address, user name, or range of IPs, from editing
Lets a user change the access levels of another user including de-sysopping. On wikipedia a Steward is required for this, but by default in mediawiki it requires only bureaucrat. Steward isn't a default group.
Lets a user create a user account for another user, or for themselves
Lets a user upload an image or other file to the wiki, or to overwrite an existing non-protected file
Gives a user a link to more easily revert a bad edit
Lets a user state that they have checked an edit that appeared in recent changes
Lets users edit the MeritBadgeDotOrg namespace to affect the interface
Lets users lock and unlock the database (and possibly change other settings that affect the whole site)
Edits by a user with this "right" (rather: property) by default do not show up in recent changes (usually only used for mass edits by bots)
Allows user to import pages via the transwiki interface.
Allows user to import pages which have been exported to a file
