Requests for permissions

This page enables administrators to handle requests for permissions on the English Wikipedia. Administrators are able to modify account creator, autopatrolled, confirmed, file mover, extended confirmed, mass message sender, new page reviewer, page mover, pending changes reviewer, rollback, template editor rights and AutoWikiBrowser access.

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. Editors should not expect their request to be answered right away and should remember to be patient when filing a request. 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.

User groups

  • Account creator (add requestview 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 requestview 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 25 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.
  • AutoWikiBrowser (add requestview requests): AutoWikiBrowser is a semi-automated MediaWiki editor for Microsoft Windows, 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. This is not a true user right, but access needs to be granted by administrators just like other permissions. If approved, your name will be added to the CheckPage. Users with under 250 non-automated mainspace edits or 500 total mainspace edits are rarely approved. You will need to give a reason for wanting AWB access.
  • Confirmed (add requestview 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.
  • Event coordinator (add requestview requests): The event coordinator user right allows editors to create multiple new accounts, and to temporarily confirm accounts so that they can create new articles.
  • Extended confirmed (add requestview requests): The extended confirmed flag is normally automatically added to accounts after 500 edits and 30 days, but may be added to legitimate alternate accounts of users that already have this access. The flag allows users to edit pages under extended confirmed protection.
  • File mover (add requestview requests): The file mover user right is intended to allow users experienced in working with files to rename them, subject to policy, with the ease that autoconfirmed users already enjoy when renaming Wikipedia articles.
  • Mass message sender (add requestview requests): Mass message sender enables users to send messages to multiple users at once. This flag is given to users who have had made requests for delivery in the past, clearly showing an understanding of the guidance for use.
  • New page reviewer (add requestview requests): The new page reviewer user right allows users to mark pages as patrolled and use the page curation toolbar. At administrators' discretion, the right may be accorded on a time limited basis or indefinite.
  • Page mover (add requestview requests): The page mover user right allows users experienced in working with article names to move them, subject to policy, without leaving behind a redirect. They may also move all subpages when moving the parent page(s). General guidelines include making 3,000 edits and 6 months of editing history. At administrators' discretion, the right may be accorded on a time limited basis or indefinite.
  • Pending changes reviewer (add requestview requests): The reviewer flag is granted to users who are experienced enough with Wikipedia editing and its policies for contributing to the process of reviewing articles placed under pending changes. There is no set number of edits that must be done, but a general rule of thumb is that a user is Extended confirmed. However, a user must be Confirmed or auto-confirmed user to add requests to the page.
  • Rollback (add requestview 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. Also, it is unlikely that editors with under 200 mainspace edits will have their request granted. 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 requestview 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 or modules), 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.

Handled elsewhere

Several permissions are requested and handled elsewhere:

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.

The bureaucrat, checkuser, and oversight flags are removed at meta:Steward requests/Permissions. Stewards will typically not carry out such requests unless they are made on behalf of the Arbitration Committee, by a user who is requesting their own access be removed, or in cases of an emergency.



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 are permitted to grant account creator, autopatrolled, confirmed, event coordinator, file mover, mass message sender, pending changes reviewer, rollback and template editor flags to any user who meets the criteria explained above and can be trusted not to abuse the tool(s). Administrators may either grant these permissions permanently or temporarily. For convenience, a bot will automatically comment with relevant data if the user does not meet configurable qualifications. Even if the bot does not comment, administrators 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. N hours after the last comment was made (as specified by the config), the request will be archived automatically: approved requests will be placed here; declined requests will go here. See User:MusikBot/PermClerk#Archiving for more information on archiving functionality.

Account creator



I have created 40+ articles and only 2 deleted, but that was when I was still a newbie. I usually create notable Nigeria and football related articles showing that I know much about general notability guidelines. I'm working on creating more stand-alone articles for some of The Headies categories that are still yet to be created. For sure, getting this right will reduce the huge backlog at New pages patrol and the much workload on the hardworking New page patrollers, now that the holidays are coming soon.

Had no intention of applying for any special right on Wikipedia but circumstances are forcing me to do so. It is quite disheartening to see your article crying for a review but no one has time to do the same for you. It is, of course, understandable as to why this happens. And that is why I am applying for this right in order to reduce the burden of our community. I testify that I fully understand what this right means. I am also familiar with Wikipedia policies and guidelines. I create contents on religion and philosophy. Created BLPs of people from different religious and philosophical background with particular focus on Islam which I happen to know a little about. Of 32 articles that I created, two got deleted. Of these two, one was mistakenly created in a different language. The other one was due to my failure, as a newbie, to realise what 'sufficient coverage' meant to be. Well, I understand it now. Other 30 articles have zero percent chance of getting deleted. Looking forward to creating some quality contents in future. I believe it would encourage me as well. Thanks.Mosesheron (talk) 18:31, 2 December 2019 (UTC)


I have created some 30 articles and am well familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Seeing New Pages Feed's backlog, I am hereby requesting for autopatrolled permission to help lower the burden of the hardworking New Page Reviewers. Shemtov613 (talk) 19:40, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

I requested for this rights in 2016/2017 but was denied due to the fact that I had only 8 articles at the time and was told to reapply when I had created at least 25 articles as of now I have 26 articles and none have ever been deleted. But that isn’t what’s important. What is, however is assisting the NPR who have a lot of pages to patrol/Review as of now I can observe 6000+ unreviewed articles. I have grasped the concept of notability and thanks to a more experienced user I have also grasped the imperative nature of WP:RS and hereby seek to serve the community in this regard. In the spirit of transparency I want it to be noted that i have requested a G7 for two drafts of mine due to insufficient sources to substantiate claims made in the article.

In German Wikipedia, I am active moving articles when the disambiguation type is to be changed (latest example). An automated edit summary via AWB would help saving a lot of time. --KnightMove (talk) 19:48, 30 November 2019 (UTC) KnightMove (talk) 19:48, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
It's not possible for non-admins to move pages using AWB. That type of move also does not seem like a thing happening on a large scale. ‑‑Trialpears (talk) 20:02, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
I don't want to do that. As mentioned, I only want an automated edit summary like "Linkfix after move of XYZ to XYZ (TV channel). This helps saving a lot of time. For my current move, those are like ~1000 pages to be edited.
Further, I can't judge the situation in English Wikipedia, but in German Wikipedia those moves happen somewhat regularily. Each of them causes a lot of work, as described. --KnightMove (talk) 20:20, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
Ah okay, then perhaps user:Qwertyytrewqqwerty/DisamAssist would be of interest? It's a script specifically made for this purpose without requiring AWB access. These moves happen regularly through the WP:RM forum, all I meant was that they usually don't require the moving part automated. ‑‑Trialpears (talk) 20:37, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
I'm not sure whether this works in German Wikipedia. Anyway, correctiong links is not only about disambiguating them, but also about fixing links to parenthetical disambiguations to be deleted. In the current example, I change the links to de:Stephansdom (Wien), as this parenthetical disambiguation is liable to deletion afterwards. --KnightMove (talk) 21:22, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
@KnightMove: On enwiki, we generally only delete redirects if there is a seperate consensus to do so at WP:RFD. The old parenthetical disambiguation stays in place generally without issue. –MJLTalk 05:35, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

E Super Maker, I certainly want to encourage people to do this. But I am not sure how much experience you have at writing articles, or whether perhaps you want to direct events with a technical orientation. It would help very much to know what events you have in mind, and whether you plan to engage at the physical event or remotely. If you do assist at physical events, it will necessarily declare your location; as you have not so far done this, you may want to email me from my user talk page.

Back in September, I requested, and was given the NPR rights for 3 months, set to expire in early December, now I am here to request a permanent extension of the right. I've reviewed and tagged pages appropriately, and want to continue helping newer users. James-the-Charizard (talk to me!) (contribs) 13:30, 25 November 2019 (UTC)

    • @James-the-Charizard: thanks for your continued interest in New Page Reviewing. I have some questions and concerns based on your NPP so far. I see a lot of red links - 11/29 reviewed articles by my count. Most of these have been speedily deleted even. One that was speedily deleted, recreated, and then deleted at AfD with your participation was Zionfelix (Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Zionfelix). Do you recall how you went from thinking it should be reviewed to !voting delete at AfD? Normally I would ignore this as it came early on but it is part of a possible trend. More recently Shreedeep rayamajhi was properly moved by you to Shreedeep Rayamajhi but was then deleted there as a WP:G4. Do you have thoughts or other context that would be helpful in evaluating these? Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 19:06, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
      • Barkeep49 In the case of the Zionfelix article, I was in the process of doing a bit of research to check wether sources got missed or for copyright violations, but I ran out of time (real life hits hard) but I did the tags first, and forgot to press unreview (as I was going to let others look at the article too). Once I looked into things further, I found a lack of reliable sources along with promotional language (which ended up being removed by another user) which made my vote delete on that AfD. As for the other one, I moved the article (as all BLP articles have uppercase names) and saw potential in the article, however I didn't know it was eligible for G4 at the time (likely the previously deleted tag was inadvertently removed when I moved the pages) which is why I just left it be after I was done with the small minor fixes. The thing is, on several of the red link articles, I would've probably tagged for speedy deletion, but I held back just to be safe (technically going against the policy of being bold, but oh well.) and figured let other reviewers handle those articles. Since then I have grown more and learned and am not afraid to hold back. James-the-Charizard (talk to me!) (contribs) 19:46, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
 Done for three more months. There's enough promise here to warrant continued work, but James please take some time to improve your knowledge and ability to accurately tag for speedy deletion. There was a broad range of reasons why the articles were speedily deleted, everything from G4 (which this script can help with) to copyright, to Spam. If you find you need help with any of this please don't hesitate to drop me a line or ask at WT:NPR. Best,Barkeep49 (talk) 21:55, 30 November 2019 (UTC)


I think I can be helpful in reviewing new pages. I also think I have use for it because of a good number of articles I would like to review. 1, 2, 3. I have the experience needed since I have been a regular editor for 4 years in addition to having good understanding of general notability guidelines.

I am requesting this policy because I seek to serve in this regard as I am aware of the burden of the current NPP and the backlog of several unreviewed articles furthermore I believe I have extensive knowledge on notability guidelines as I have created 20+ articles with none deleted. Celestina007 (talk) 00:45, 7 December 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your interest in New Page Patrol. I notice some positive work, including regular participation in Articles for Deletion discussions and your articles created (though I will note that you did recently request G7 on an article that had been, properly, moved to draft). However, there are a few issues which are leading me to marking this as  Not done for now. While AfD participation is good, the record on nominations is a little more mixed and I see no evidence of work with speedy deletions. I also found at least one comment on a deleted page that was a bit more aggressive than I'd hope from a New Page Reviewer to an article creator and the lack of edit summaries which are descriptive also give me pause on the communications front. However, you do seem qualified for pending changes reviewer and so I have granted you that. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 18:19, 7 December 2019 (UTC)
Barkeep49 noted! I shall address every issue you have emphasized upon and would work diligently on them and in the future would re-apply. Keep up the good work sir. Cheers Celestina007 (talk) 19:27, 07 December 2019 (UTC)

Page mover


One of my interests is to edit animal articles. Often, these articles need to be moved due to taxonomic reasons. While many of these moves I am able to do myself, frequently I lack the permission to do so. Lately, I have been pestering a patient admin (see here) to do multiple moves for me each week. The page mover permission would allow me to move these pages directly without further tying up an admin's time. Loopy30 (talk) 01:30, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

Pending changes reviewer

User:Prahlad balaji

I'm an extended confirmed user who's been editing Wikipedia for about three or four years now and have made at least 4,930 edits. I am a member of several WikiProjects that aim to reduce vandalism, and when I'm alone, I try to stop it, too. If I got reviewer rights, it would make it easier for me to watch articles and reduce vandalism on them. Plus, it will be a big help to the Wikipedia community, because I am very good at this kind of stuff. I've read WP:RPC many times and understand it fully. I will never cause vandalism and only hope to help reduce it. Thank you very much. -PRAHLADBalaji 03:11, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

@Prahlad balaji: I am still waiting for this editor to answer a couple of questions on their talk page, questions about edits that I just do not understand.

I have been actively editing Wikipedia for two years now and have a track record of defending certain controversial pages from various forms of vandalism. I came across "pending changes" for the first time on a page I wanted to add content to and decided I would like to have the "Pending changes reviewer" permission after I read through Wikipedia:Pending changes. I am familiar with the various Wikipedia editing policies. Websurfer2 (talk) 09:29, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

I've been a regular contributor on Wikipedia for years now and meet the listed criteria. Some of the articles I occasionally edit tend to be pending changes-protected and lack a swift response from reviewers. I could therefore give a hand in this and speed up the response.

User:The Grid

Even though I've been a Wikipedian for 14 years, I have been active in the past 1.5 years reviewing Wikipedia policies. I wish to have the opportunity and the rights to review pending changes on here. I acknowledge the criteria put forth on WP:RPC. – The Grid (talk) 16:20, 27 November 2019 (UTC) – The Grid (talk) 16:20, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

User:A Red Cherry

I would like to have access to this ability, given that I have been editing periodically on Wikipedia for years now and have received some acclaim for this work, mostly minor edits, fixes, and corrections along with dealing with vandalism in those instances. There's many pages which I think I could contribute to help the pace of accepting unproblematic edits, and I have of course read WP:RPC. Thank you very much!

I want these rights so I can decrease the workload for my fellow Wikipedians. I've been a rollbacker for some time now, using that feature only within the purview of WP:RBK. Likewise, I know I can use pending changes reviewing rights responsibly. TheSavageNorwegian 10:01, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

I'm an extended confirmed user with over 1900 edits. I have reverted vandalism edits before, and I would like to help prevent vandalism. I have read through WP:Pending changes and WP:RPC. Thank you! - Iamreallygoodatcheckers (talk) 01:36, 3 December 2019 (UTC)


I would like the permission to help me with vandalism, as most of my work are reverting vandalism. I got the permission declined in the past month but I have gotten more experience. I have read the Wikipedia:Pending changes and Wikipedia:Reviewing pending changes. Thanks. The4lines (talk) 18:14, 5 December 2019 (UTC)

I just got to know there is a huge backlog in Wikipedia. I am already a newpage reviewer and I just do my level best to minimize the backlog. I am doing my routine work as NPR as I often involve in Afd discussions, tagging articles for PROD, Afd when they do not meet WP:GNG. I also help to revert vandalism in recent times for controversial topics. Abishe (talk) 15:36, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

I've been trying to ensure that articles are built with correct info. I just encountered an unsourced edit, which was very likely vandalism, so I decided to request for rollback to easily reverse seemingly vandalism although I'm relatively new to Wikipedia. Thanks.

I want the rollback precisely because I want to use STiki, I have an idea when use rollback. Actually i'm interest to more Work using Rollback for Vandalism and disruptive edit. i have lot work using rollback for protected. if i get, Having this user's rights will be a lot easier for me to work with and I through extend the rollback safe from a lot of other Vandalism edits. (I have a better experience now because my previous decline here by admin for some reason, but at this moment i fix it, an also right now using [1] edit summary, [2] CSD is declining now than ever before. Though some decline, but later i was able to remove article via nomination. I think I am eligible for this right. In addition I've extended confirmed user, pending changes reviewer , new page reviewer rights on English Wikipedia. I have a request from the admin if not eligible, ask me any questions). I hope that my contribution will helpful. Thanks-Nahal(T) 12:07, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

I have been reverting vandalism for almost 2 weeks now, and I think I'm ready to use they stronger tools. I have nearly 200 mainspace edits, and just over 500 total edits. N0nsensical.system(err0r?) 10:26, 5 December 2019 (UTC)

Having made more than 1100 mainspace edits, I am an extended confirmed user as well. I wish to be given the rollback rights because I found reversing edits to the undamaged version manually quite inconvenient; I'll make use of the right with discretion. NYKTNE (talk) 16:11, 7 December 2019 (UTC)
