Heiya Amanda,

this should help in your case:

$wgExtensionFunctions[] = function() {
	if( array_key_exists( 'checkuser', $GLOBALS['wgGroupPermissions'] ) ) {
		unset( $GLOBALS['wgGroupPermissions']['checkuser'] );

I remove the staff group provided by the EditAccount extension
similarily without issues. I guess this has to be done every time an
extension adds a new user group.

Cheers Karsten

One of the configuration changes that I made to my wiki is that I grandfathered oversight and checkuser rights into the “steward” group, which is what Miraheze uses for its “staff” group, and then I unset the oversight and checkuser groups to remove them in the config.
