* "Go live" means the changes become visible to readers who are not logged in to Wikipedia. In all cases throughout this table, changes are immediately visible to readers who are logged in.

** When an administrator or pending changes reviewer edits an article that has pending changes awaiting review, they must review the pending changes in order for their own edit(s) to go live.
*** This column assumes that a pending changes reviewer is also extended confirmed. (A pending changes reviewer needs the separate extended confirmed right to edit through extended confirmed protection; in practice nearly all pending changes reviewers will have the extended confirmed right.)
