Requests for registration[edit]

Please read the guide on the main page before requesting permission. In applying for AWB access, you indicate that you will abide by its terms.

Also, this page is for requesting AWB Access for this wiki (English Wikipedia) only. Other projects have their own check pages and you should ask administrators there to add you.

Please add your name to the bottom of the appropriate list (user or bot) on this page below using *{{AWBUser|your username}} ~~~~~. Enter your user name exactly as the software displays it, for example in the 'Basic information' section of your preferences. Do not use underscores instead of spaces or change the case of the first letter. Note that all usernames begin with an uppercase letter or a symbol.

If the list contains undecided entries that are over 48 hours old, please change {{noadminbacklog}} to {{adminbacklog}} at the top of this page.

Note that users with under 500 mainspace non-automated edits are rarely approved. You can check your contributions in each namespace at Tool Labs. You only need to give a reason for wanting AWB access if you have fewer than 500 mainspace non-automated edits. Administrators are automatically approved and do not need to list themselves.

If approved, your name will be added to the CheckPage. If you will make many or fast automated edits using AWB, you may wish to use a separate (or bot) account for the purpose.


  • Question You only have 193 edits in the article namespace instead of the required 500. For what do you want to use AWB? Armbrust The Homunculus 13:28, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
  • I think this software is the useful tool for editing articles. How much experience is needed to use it? Hananeh.M.h (talk) 05:39, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
  • The experience I look for proves that you can write English using correct grammar and syntax, that you know how to use Wiki markup, you know some Wikipedia policy, that you can communicate using talk, and that there are not too many complaints about you. I look for about 400 non-automated edits that add or improve content. If you do large contributions using less edits then that could prove competence also, but the instructions ask for a specific reason. That is what do you intend to do with the tool!

  • I am still waiting to hear what you want to do with AWB. Please be specific. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 21:29, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
  • What would you like to do with AWB? Mostly I see reverts and removals. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 02:27, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Mostly to explore it. Most of what I've done on Wikipedia is reverting vandalism and answering semi-protected edit requests, I'm interested in broadening my scope and AWB looks like a useful tool to get into making small corrections. Cannolis (talk) 07:14, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
  • X mark.svg Not done It looks as if you have done very little writing so far. Normally I expect about 400 edits that add to, or fix up pages. This does not include reverts. It is hard for people that concentrate exclusively on counter vandalism to meet the requirements. So I suggest some content writing or content editing.
