Hat collecting can occur across wikis, with users using the rights they've got at one wiki to bootstrap an application on another wiki. This isn't always a problem: most of the user rights require trust. If a long-standing Wikisource admin turns up, there is a good reason ''[[ceteris paribus]]'' to presume trustworthiness compared to a complete new user.
But remember, some wikis are very lax about handing out user rights. [[Simple English Wikipedia]] have been known to hand out rollback after two edits... on the basis that the user also had rollback on Commons. Some even automatically allocate extra rights, like the English Wikibooks that gives rollback and reviewer by an automatic process. Be careful not to replicateplace too much weight on rights on other projects when considering granting thisthem at English Wikipedia.
