Requests for permissions
Shortcuts:
This page enables administrators to handle requests for permissions on the English Wikipedia. Administrators are able to modify rollback, reviewer, file mover, template editor, account creator, confirmed, and autopatrolled rights.
Editors wishing to request a permission flag here should do so following the procedure below. Editors requesting permissions are advised to periodically revisit the requests page, as notifications will not always be given after a decision is made. To find out what permissions your account has, go to Special:Preferences, where your permissions are listed in the user profile tab under "Member of groups".
Requests for permissions are archived regularly, please see Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Archive for an index of past requests.

Permissions

Handled here

User Groups
  • Account creator (add request · view requests): The account creator flag is granted to users who are active in the request an account process. The flag removes the limit on the maximum number of new accounts that can be created in a 24 hour period. It also allows users to make accounts with names similar to other accounts. The account creator flag is only given to users who participate in the ACC process and may be removed without notice should a user's participation in the account creation process cease.
  • Autopatrolled (add request · view requests): The autopatrolled flag is granted to users who are active in the creation of new articles. This tool is granted so their creations are auto patrolled in Special:NewPages. Unlike other requests, any user may nominate an editor for Autopatrolled, even without that user's consent. A user who wishes to have this flag generally should have created at least 50 articles and must be trusted, experienced, and must have demonstrated they are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, especially WP:BLP and Wikipedia:Notability.
  • Confirmed (add request · view requests): The confirmed flag may be granted to new users who have not yet hit the threshold for autoconfirmed status. These are users who have not had both 10 edits and 4 days experience. People with this flag can upload files and edit semi-protected pages before hitting the autoconfirmed flag. Users requesting this flag must indicate clearly why they should be exempted from the customary confirmation period.
  • Rollback (add request · view requests): Rollback enables users to remove vandalism much more quickly and efficiently than by undoing it. Users who do not demonstrate an understanding of what constitutes capable vandalism fighting, either because they have no or little history of doing so, or show a poor ability to discern between good and bad faith edits will not be granted this right. For a more detailed explanation of rollback and information about when it is appropriate to use the tool, see Wikipedia:Rollback. For information about the technical details of the feature, see here.
  • Template editor (add request · view requests): The template editor flag allows users to edit protected templates and Lua modules. General guidelines for granting include making at least 1,000 edits overall (with at least 150 to templates), being a registered user for over a year, and having a record of successfully proposing significant edits to several protected templates. Users should demonstrate proficiency with template syntax and an understanding of the need for caution when editing heavily-used templates.
Other
  • AutoWikiBrowser: Requests for access to AutoWikiBrowser should be made at Wikipedia talk:AutoWikiBrowser/CheckPage, if approved, your name will be added to the CheckPage. AutoWikiBrowser is a semi-automated MediaWiki editor for Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 designed to make tedious repetitive tasks quicker and easier. It is essentially a browser that automatically opens up a new page when the last is saved. When set to do so, it suggests some changes (typically formatting) that are generally meant to be incidental to the main change. Please read the quick guide on the main page before requesting permission. Users with under 500 mainspace edits are RARELY approved and you only need to give a reason for wanting AWB access if you have fewer than 500 mainspace edits!

Handled elsewhere

Several permissions are requested and handled elsewhere:

  • Edit filter: Requests for access to the Edit filter manager group should be made at Wikipedia talk:Edit filter. Requests may take in general up to seven days to process; more in case appropriate consensus, or lack of it, is not clear.

Removal of permissions

If you wish to have any of your permission flags (except administrator) removed, you should contact an administrator. If you want your administrator flag removed, you should contact a bureaucrat.

This is not the place to request review of another user's rights. If you believe someone's actions merit removal of a permission flag, you should raise your concern at the incidents noticeboard.

Note: The bureaucrat, checkuser and oversight flags cannot be removed using this process page; those need to be posted at Steward requests/permissions. Stewards will typically not carry out such requests unless they come from members of the Arbitration Committee or a user who is requesting their own access be removed.

Process

Requestors

To make a request for a permission, click "add request" next to the appropriate header and fill in the reason for wanting permission.

Any editor may comment on requests for permission.

Administrators

Administrators are permitted to grant rollback, file mover, reviewer, confirmed, autopatrolled and/or account creator flags to any user who meets the criteria explained above and can be trusted not to abuse the tool(s). They should review the user's contributions and logs to ensure the tools will be used appropriately and check for any indication of potential misuse.

Once an administrator has granted a permission or decided to deny a request, they should add {{done}} or {{not done}} respectively under the request with their comments. If a user already has the requested permission, or is autoconfirmed and requesting confirmed, {{already done}} should be used. The request will then be archived. A log of approved requests will be placed here; declined requests will go here.

Pictogram voting info.svg Administrator note: @Masum Ibn Musa: You do appear to meet the basic qualifications for this. However, when reviewing these requests I like to take a look at recent threads on the user's talk page as well. Your user talk page is using some extremely obnoxious formatting to force all comments into a font that is difficult to read and makes my eyes hurt, so I am leaving this request unreviewed for now.

User:Vishal14k

I generally create new articles but as soon as the articles are created, a lot of unregistered users add a lot of information that is either from unreliable sources or doesn't have any source at all. It becomes very difficult to maintain the quality of the articles in that case. Hence, I request that this permission be granted to me so that I can ensure that whatever I am working on meets Wikipedia policies and guidelines. Thanks. Vishal14K | Talk 13:00, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
This is not a good use of rollback. Those kinds of reversions require decent edit summaries, which rollback cannot do. Please continue to use the "undo" button and append an explanation to the edit summary. Regards — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 11:55, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done You have a good number of mainspace edits, but they are very sparse. The last bit of editing that may be of counter vandalism efforts was in February of 2013.

X mark.svg Not done You appear to have yourself introduced unconstructive edits as soon as a month ago at Yue. Understand this is absolutely unacceptable and considering rollback is intended to revert these types of edits, we naturally cannot trust you with the tool. I will say your recent edits however are helpful contributions, and with time you may be granted rollback if you become active in counter-vandalism efforts, demonstrating you can distinguish vandalism from good-faith edits. Please review Wikipedia:Rollback for more information on what it is for, and if you decide you want to get involved I would recommend enrolling in the counter-vandalism training program before requesting again.

  • Symbol declined.svg Denied, you seem to be editing from mobile most of the time and rollback isn't well-supported from the mobile platform. Additionally, a number of your articles have been nominated for deletion and you have inappropriately or improperly listed other articles for deletion.

It has been 2 years and 3 months since I joined and till now I have over 410 edits... But, the edits are about the quality of them. I'm currently working on improving more than 10 articles, but I prefer to make the changes and review it very carefully before I click the (Save page) button.

As you can see, I'm not that very much active as an editor on the English Wikipedia, but I read a lot and often stumble over articles which have changes pending review. On the German WP I'm a reviewer since... uhm I guess shortly after it was introduced there... so I should be well capable of correctly reviewing articles. I surely won't spend many hours per day with reviewing but it still may help if I do so from time to time. Therefore, you may grant me reviewer rights at your convenience. Best wishes.

The problem is that we do not necessarily use the same criteria for accepting or rejecting edits as the German WP, and with only 70 article edits here, it is difficult to judge how well you understand policies on this Wikipedia.

Almost all of my ~900 edits have been reverting vandalism, though some of them (especially the more recent ones) have been semi-automated with Huggle. I was granted rollback permissions about a week and a half ago, and I would like to be able to accept pending changes too. KSFTC 16:49, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

I'm even a month old in wikipedia and I've already made over 300 edits. I want this right so that I can help prevent the underrated pages of wikipedia from vandalism which are often used for "vandalistic" works. I'm also a RC-Pattroller and use Twinkle.

Though I agree I made a few mistakes in some circumstances, I still believe this right is an "I-Deserve" for me. The mistakes were made unintentionally though.

Thank you for reading, hope you grant me the rights. RealmmbCTalk 12:40, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

File mover

(add requestview requests)


User:AustralianRupert

I primarily writing articles focused upon military history. While searching for files to illustrate these articles, I have found several images over the years that, under the file moving guidelines, should potentially be moved to a more appropriate name. As such, I would like to obtain the file mover privilege so that I can rectify errors in file names that I come across while editing. I currently have the file mover privilege on Commons (please see contributions here: [4]) and have done a few file moves there. I have read the file moving guidelines.

As I am working on updating article is the WikiProject Fire Service, I have come across a number of poorly named files. My goal here is to be able to take files with names like "DepartmentLogo123.jpg" and rename them as "Santa Monica Fire Department Logo.jog" (for example). I know there is a long backlog so I would like to be able to help out. Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 17:33, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
@Zackmann08: Have you made any file rename requests on enwiki? Have you read the enwiki file move criteria? Also the backlog isn't that big, most of the pages in the category are from Category:Wikipedia files that shadow a file on Wikimedia Commons which usually don't need to be moved on enwiki (instead deleted as duplicates, or transferred to Commons as free images). Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 04:27, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
@Callanecc: Thank you for the response! I have made a few request on enwiki over the years but for the most part have found an admin with the necessary permissions and just requested they do the move, rather than just adding to the backlog. I realize that relative to other backlogs this one is not that large. I just want to be able to do more, ya know? I mean Ideally I would love to be an admin so I can help with page moves and other administrative backlogs, but I do not feel I will "pass the test" to become an admin, so I figured that this would be a good starting point. Get a few powers (for lack of a better word), show that I can use them responsibly, then hopefully apply for admin rights down the road. I welcome any feedback or advice you may have for me. Thanks so much. --Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 16:59, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Template editor

(add requestview requests)


User:Qed237

After I withdrew my old request to become a template editor about a year ago, I think it is now time for a new request. I will start by showing where I stand regarding Wikipedia:Template editor#Guidelines for granting:
  1. 24 Months
  2. 37000+ edits
  3. 2700+ template edits and 29 module edits
  4. Never blocked
  5. Sandbox edits
  6. These are successful requests

I well pass criteria 1-4, but I am aware of the fact that criteria 5 is not the strongest since one is only semi-protected and one edit is only a revert. Also criteria 6 is only editnotices. But I believe that my experience compensates for that (or I would not have made this request). I am well experienced in template editing (and some of those templates probably should be protected) and as an example I was one of the major contributors to Module:Sports table (although an other editor actually made the coding) now used all over football related articles and spreading to other projects. I am no stranger to consensus and often goes to related wikiproject for consensus (often Wikipedia:WikiProject Football) before doing changes that may be controversial and if I get this right I will not abuse it and do what I want, but I will still find consensus first as that is one of the "keystones" in wikipedia (in my mind). Also if I become a template editor I can add editnotices myself (if requested) as I have gotten questions about editnotices, but not been able to add them so It has been extra workload on others to add my requested editnotices.

If you have any questions I will try and answer them, but I think my (very) long message above answers most questions. Qed237 (talk) 14:53, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

User:Ahecht

I have done a lot of work on Wikipedia improving and tweaking templates, and having the template editor bit would allow me to more easily make uncontroversial changes to protected templates (of course, I would test any such changes extensively in the sandbox and gain talk page consensus before making any changes that could conceivably be controversial). There doesn't currently seem to be much of a backlog of template edit requests, but now that one of our more prolific template editors has retired/been blocked, I feel that I have enough technical and policy knowledge to help with addressing any backlog that occurs.
I have been on Wikipedia for almost 9 years, have made over 13,000 edits, (almost 500 edits in the template namespace), and have never been blocked. My template work has included edits to technically complex templates such as modifying the {{Afc decline}} template to make commenting on draft submissions easier and more informative to new editors, creating templates such as {{Great circle distance}}, {{Title year}}, and {{Current other}}, making major modifications to templates such as {{Xsign}}, {{CC-notice}}, {{Show by date}}, {{Db-g12}}, {{AfC talk}}, {{Uw-uploadfirst}}, and {{User Wiki age3}}, and requesting sandboxed changes be made to templates such as Template:Reply to, Template:Copied, and Template:AFC submission and its subpages (I also requested edits to Template:R_to_list_entry and Template:Infobox company, but didn't edit the sandbox). I have also helped other editors with their edit requests (such as at Template:User sandbox) and made dozens of small but useful edits to templates to add additional non-breaking functionality and improve documentation.Ahecht (TALK

    Hi SamB, you're jumping the gun by a bit more than 15 edits, when you take into account all your automated edits (I counted about 80 or so). Can I ask what you're planning to use AWB for? WormTT(talk) 12:26, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
    @Worm That Turned: Oh, was it that many [semi-]automated edits really? I guess I do use checklinks and refill a fair amount (though I do actually keep an eye on them to make sure they don't, for example, do anything horrible to link titles -- and when they do propose to horribly mangle titles, I go back and try to make the new title at least as good as the old one; also, most of the links I fix with checklinks I had to wade through a bunch of archived copies of what look suspiciously similar to 404 pages), and I had noticed that xtools-ec doesn't seem to count edits made using those tools. So, um, what tool are you using to count edits?
    Oh, and as to what I'm looking to use AWB for, lately I've mainly been contemplating things like adding [most of] the pages listed in a navigation template, such as {{Conway's Game of Life}}, to an appropriate category. Maybe HotCat can do that already, but I'd feel more comfortable being able to check each edit (one of those novels doesn't really seem to have much to do with the Game of Life), and I wouldn't have to worry about accidentally triggering the wrong flurry of edits. (If it seems like I'm strangely familiar with AWB, that's because I've already used it on commons.)
    Anyway, if you'd rather I do more edits and ask again later, I guess I'll just have to wait a bit longer before I can actually do any of the little tasks that make me think "well that would sure be easy to do with AWB". (Wow, that is a lot more text than I thought it was going to be.) —SamB (talk) 19:51, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
