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.

Permissions

Handled here

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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 hoverbar. 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.
  • 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.

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 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.

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 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.

While I am not a very regular author of new articles (just about at the magical 25 article level), I believe I have shown good command of Wikipedia's policies and guidelines as patroller/AfC reviewer and editor.

I have written over 40 articles (3 have since been deleted, but I think my skills as shown in the remaining 39 demonstrate my competence) and have assisted with both AfC and AfD. I don't really mind being denied this right, but I don't think running my pages through NPP has any benefit, since the pages I create don't tend to get either revised or deleted, and the backlog at NPP is WAAAaaaay long (I get notifications now for articles I wrote months ago!). This is a burden I'd just as soon lift off things. But up to you guys. A loose necktie (talk) 20:38, 15 March 2019 (UTC) A loose necktie (talk) 20:38, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

User:T0mpr1c3

Hi there, I have created about 100 new articles and about another 100 category pages in the last year or so. I wouldn't say that I know the Wikipedia guidelines back-to-front, but I would say that I am an experienced editor. I have been creating quite a lot of scientific biography pages, and by now I am familiar with the guidelines for notability and I think I write in reasonably good style. I have also participated in some AfDs - on both sides, although my tendencies are a little on the inclusive side, probably. I think 4 of the pages that I have created have been deleted. 3 of these were very new bios that were quickly tagged for deletion and that I subsequently recreated. I have since learned to tag newly-created pages to avoid this happening. The 4th was a page for a scientific award that had only been awarded for a couple of years and lost an AfD on the ground that it was WP:TOOSOON. Looking back I reacted a bit petulantly at the time, but ultimately I learned from it and now agree that the right decision was made. So, on these grounds, I would say that 99% of my new page creations are OK. If suitable under the criteria that are applied, I think autopatrolling the pages that I create in future might be a time saver. τ℗ʍ (talk) 20:04, 18 March 2019 (UTC) τ℗ʍ (talk) 20:04, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

User:Cormac1cormac1

Has created over 500 articles spanning several years. I've probably personally reviewed over 100 of them, and never had a single issue. Back in 2012 they had a problem with David Stapleton (Lieutenant-General), which was deleted for copyvio, since then they seem to have learned how to not cut and paste. The other 6 deletions are pretty innocuous reasons, with one exception, 37 Club Art, which was apparently deleted as a hoax. Can't see the deleted article, but this seems completely out of character for this editor. Onel5969 TT me 15:55, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Not done - If the file you want to upload is available under a free license, it should be uploaded to our free media repository, the Commons. You do not need any special permissions to upload there, and you can use the same username and password you use here. If it is not available under a free license, it should be requested using the Files for Upload process, which does not require any special permissions. — xaosflux Talk 12:56, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Not done - Hi, and thank you for creating an account to edit Wikipedia. Although I fully understand your desire to dive right in, many of our articles are semi-protected because they are controversial, prone to vandalism, or other reasons. As a new editor with few edits, it might be wise to discuss your edits on the article talkpage in order to gain consensus for your edits, and then use {{Edit semi-protected}} to request the edit be performed. I only recommend this until you're used to the challenges of reliable sources, the biographies of living persons policy, and other similar policies. The good news is that fewer than 5% of Wikipedia articles are protected; this means that 95% of the articles can use your help right now! — JJMC89(T·C) 05:55, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

I have read the guidelines given at Wikipedia:New pages patrol. I have also created the article Squidward Nose.

Thegooduser Life Begins With a Smile :) 🍁 21:11, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

Not done I think you're a pretty good candidate for this, but I think I'd like to see a little more experience in the relevant areas first. You seem to have a good handle on U5/G11, but there aren't a lot of A criteria CSD noms to go off of just yet, and I see a few pages you dropped content tags on that probably should've been tagged for SD. Likewise for PROD, there isn't a lot to go off, but this (sysop only) would've been better as a speedy and I don't love the rationale at IRIB International Conference Center. Similarly for AfD: not a lot to go off, but Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Achinoam Nini gives me pause. It's not about whether there are currently references, but whether references exist from reliable sources that show notability. Hope that makes sense; as I said, I think some more work in the area would be good but you've clearly got the knack of it. ~ Amory (utc) 10:46, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

I have over 500 edits on wikipedia, have been a regular editor for more than 90 days, and have been an editor for more than 7 month now. I have created multiple pages, and have uploaded files. I have read all Wikipedia policy liable laws, copyright, source evaluation, etc. If you feel I need more practice though, I'll be happy to gain more experience. Thank you for taking the time to review my case, and have a nice day! AR.Dmg (talk) 18:45, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

User:Hickland

I've made almost 500 edits to main article space across a variety of articles, but mostly BLP's. I have reverted vandalism using Twinkle and manually before. I'm looking for pending changes reviewer permissions so that I can help to clear the backlog when I can! Hickland (talk) 06:24, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Rollback

User:Mpawluk

To whom it may concern: I'd like to request permission for rollback rights because I'm interested in using Huggle to up my anti-vandalism speed. I diff browsed on Recent Changes by hand for a little while, then started with Twinkle---Huggle seems like the next step. I hope my contributions evidence a reasonable commitment to anti-vandalism---however, if you feel I need additional practice, I am happy to do so. Thank you for your consideration.

Not done I think you're almost there, but there are a few things that give me pause. Your reversions look pretty good and you're clearly actively fighting vandalism, but you're not really giving any warnings. Warnings let the editor know that what they did was wrong and has been removed, and can be useful for finding vandals who are continuing or escalating their disruption so we can block them. Check out the information at Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace; Twinkle makes it super easy to give warnings, so that shouldn't be too difficult. Finally, while most of your reverts are good, I think it'd be helpful if you occasionally used a more custom message (again, Twinkle makes this easy). Something like your edits to Fox NASCAR, where you reverted yourself, are a good example: the first time you might've said "addition of unsourced content" because it's not necessarily really pure vandalism, and when you undid your own reversion a note explaining your thought process would've been warranted. Why don't you try doing all that for a week or so, then either ask me on my talk or drop a note here and you should be good to go. ~ Amory (utc) 09:58, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

User:No Great Shaker

Hello. I became a member only a few weeks ago but I'm spending a lot of time on the site and I can't help but see the extent of vandalism and disruption. I have done some reverts myself and this morning I used Twinkle to report someone who was blocked as a result of my report. I've noticed that other editors use a tool called Huggle and I think this would be useful for me but the product description advises people to obtain rollback rights first. I think rollback in itself is desirable because, as I understand it, I would be able to "bundle" a rogue editor's input and delete the whole lot with a single click. I believe I will continue to use the site long-term as I have much to contribute, especially on history and football, and it will certainly be a great help if I can deal with disruptive elements as quickly and efficiently as possible to minimise distraction. Do please ask me if you have any questions. Thanks very much. No Great Shaker (talk) 11:42, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
Not done Rollback only makes sense if you're regularly making a concerted effort against vandalism. I'm not seeing that, so I don't think it'd help much. Check out Twinkle, it does a lot of what you want and has a number of additional features, and it sounds like it'll cover most of what you're looking for. ~ Amory (utc) 09:45, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
@Amorymeltzer: Okay, that's fine. If I should get into new page patrols and suchlike, I'll come back. To be honest, I am much more interested in editing and reviewing than policing so I think your assessment is good. I'll certainly deal with disruption whenever I see it and, as you say, Twinkle does do the job with its warning and ARV options. Thanks very much and all the best.

@No Great Shaker: Do you have any interest in being a Pending changes reviewer? Read over that page and Wikipedia:Reviewing pending changes and let me know if it's something you're interested in; it's a more content-heavy perm and I'd be willing to grant it if you think you'd like it. ~ Amory (utc) 10:22, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

User:AR.Dmg

as I've encountered tons of vandalism during my contribution on Wikipedia and I feel I have gained enough experience to gain the Rollback permission. It will help me to efficiently patrol recent changes. At this moment, I'd have to click undo then go to the diff page and click submit to revert vandalism. Using this right, I'd be able to revert vandalism much quicker.My edit history should show my dedication towards wikipedia policy against vandalism. If you feel I need more practice though, I'll be happy to gain more experience. Thank you for taking the time to review my case, and have a nice day! AR.Dmg (talk) 17:03, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

User:Vwilding

Though I've only very recently become an active editor, I have been actively reverting vandalism with Twinkle, but have started to encounter its limitations and slowness in comparison to other tools. Of particular interest to me is Huggle, which seems a far more efficient and convenient anti-vandalism tool, hence my application. I believe I have gained enough experience to gain rollback permissions, as my edit history will hopefully show, but I do appreciate I am still learning. If you feel I need more practise, I am more than happy to keep working and improving my understanding. Thank you!  vwilding talk 23:23, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

User:MrClog

Recently, I have downloaded Huggle. Whilst I knew I couldn't use it, it did allow me to look around in read-only mode. I feel like it would greatly benefit my ability to "fight" vandalism. Twinkle is certainly handy, but Huggle is much better and unfortunately (but understandably) restricted to users with the rollback permission. I would also like to note that I have previously been an administrator on the Dutch WikiKids, but resigned a while ago. Whilst being a sysop there, I did use the rollback buttons, so I know the tricky places where you are likely to use them per accident. Also, I would like to note that I have previously edited Wikipedia with the account FritsNL, but because I forgot to set a recovery email, I lost access to it.

Mostly for adding edit-notices where needed, but there are occasionally technical errors in templates that I can correct. But the primary purpose is for adding edit-notices to pages in the ARBPIA topic area. Nableezy 22:30, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Mostly for editing infobox templates or wrappers, like {{Infobox French commune}} and {{Infobox German location}}. I'm very familiar with the use of sandboxes and test cases before (requesting) implementation of changes. Naturally, I will still discuss major changes before implementing them.
