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.

Handled here

  • 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 rules of use and registration requirements 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 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.
  • 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, page mover, 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.

Other editors

Requests for permissions is primarily intended for editors requesting a permission for their own account. Other editors are welcome to comment if they have specific information that is relevant to that request that a patrolling administrator is unlikely to discover for themselves. Otherwise, since only administrators can effectively respond to these requests, general comments or 'clerking' by other users are rarely helpful. Non-administrators cannot "decline" to grant a request, because they're not in a position to accept it.

A limited exception to this is Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Autopatrolled, where third party nominations are encouraged. Other editors should still avoid offering general remarks on requests and leave the final decision to an administrator.

User:GMH Melbourne

I have created around 50 pages thus far, haven't had any issues with them being reviewed except for a few early on when I was still getting the grasp of things. I'm an NPR and understand which pages that qualify for deletion and which are fine for wikipedia. I intend to make a lot of new pages regarding Australian Government Ministries over the next few months and thought I'd get this permission to ease the backlog of unreviewed pages. ––– GMH MELBOURNE TALK 00:15, 29 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have created a number of articles and I will continue creating more articles. I'm aware that having this right does not give any special tool to ease page creation process but will help in reducing the tedious work of new page reviewers.

Reason for requesting autopatrolled rights I have created over 50 new pages, and have updated content in many more. My primary interest over the past year has been motorsports, particularly hall of fame level race drivers from the northeastern U.S. My goal is to create stubs that comply with Wikipedia notability standards, so that other users familiar with motorsports have a starting point. As such, my work tends to be non-controversial and succinct, with little need to burden NPP. Kyle4344 (talk) 15:17, 2 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]



I have been working with categories more, and would like to see how the AWB could be helpful. Happyecheveria (talk) 22:10, 13 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'll leave this for another admin, but am inclined to decline - given User talk:Happyecheveria#Category edits I think it's probably not prudent to grant you access to automated tools that would speed up your editing at this time. * Pppery * it has begun... 16:18, 17 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I have noticed that the eponymous article for university categories is often either missing (eg several in Category:Wikipedia categories named after universities and colleges in China have no articles at the top level) or incorrectly sorted (eg in Category:University of La Laguna) and wish to use AWB with a suitable module to correct this easily. Perspicax (talk) 22:44, 19 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Leaving for a second opinion, but given that you've only recently had a talk page complaint about insufficient care in using automated tools I'm not convinced it's prudent to grant you access to additional automated tools at this time. * Pppery * it has begun... 03:48, 28 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  •  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 are 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 percent of Wikipedia articles are protected; this means that more than 95 percent of the articles can use your help right now!

I've recently started participating again at AfC and AfD again in the past few months and I figured I can handle the more demanding workload. By my own estimate, in a month I probably won't review much more than a dozen, perhaps a score, but I thought I'd throw my hat in anyway. Alpha3031 (tc) 13:12, 28 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

With the increasing backlog (although drive is coming), some help probably wouldn't hurt. I've been working at counter-vandalism, help venues, dispute resolution, speedy deletion (some of those) and a bit at AFD and removing copyvios, and currently writing a few articles. I've went through all the instructions for the Curation Tool, the new page feed, the acceptance criteria and other guidance. I've understood everything, though if I'm unsure, I'll rather ask for help or leave it in the queue rather than review it myself. NotAGenious (talk) 11:57, 29 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Not done. As far as I can see, you've only written one article and haven't participated in any AfDs. A lot of your contributions have been removing content from articles with the summary "spam clean up", which isn't accurate much of the time; for example, here, you removed a section that was clearly not spam - instead of removing it, you could've converted the external links into references. Also, this isn't the kind of attitude I look for in a reviewer. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 13:19, 30 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Flurrious. Thank you for offering to help with the backlog drive. The guidelines for granting this right ask for prior experience in AfD, AfC, and/or page creation, but it doesn't look like you've been active in any of those areas recently.

RM/TR show 22 edits, but 12 of them involved moving a request to "administrator needed" that actually only required a WP:ROUNDROBIN.

I went through the WP:Page_mover#Guidelines_for_granting and saw that I am not qualified yet per criterion #1 and #2 but I took the courage to make this request after reading the last line which says An administrator may grant page mover rights to users they otherwise deem competent and may deny the requests if they do not see a need for the tools or have other concerns.

I have a log of draftification and I keep draftifying articles and leaving a redirect that is marked for deletion. I would love to help reduce that backlog by simply having the pagemover right. Thanks so much! Vanderwaalforces (talk) 11:10, 25 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi NoNAja, the time between one's first edit on enwiki and their request for the rollback permission is usually longer than 2 hours. I have had a look at your dewiki contributions and am fine with granting the permission earlier than others would normally do, but two hours are tough to justify.

The second condition is met, if you want to still uphold the first, I will have to wait. NoNAja (talk) 01:38, 3 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


As of this day, I feel like I have now had sufficient editing experience. Most edits that I reverted have either been done through vandalism or in bad faith. Using Twinkle works well, but sometimes the rollback or vandalism revert buttons can become slow and useless. However, if I get this permission, reverting vandalism will become much easier. I will not misuse it while checking the edits. I will only use it to revert vandalism or bad-faith edits. If I don't get the permission, then that is okay. I will wait for another few months.

It would greatly help me fight vandalism. I’ve been a recent changes patroller for quite a while now. I get how it works, and will try to use it sparingly, or only in extreme cases. Professor Penguino (talk) 08:44, 3 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template editor


Hello! A while ago, I got a 3-month trial of TPE here with the primary intention of WikiGnoming template-protected modules — making small simplifications to modules to make them more efficient and/or easier to read. My trial expired a while back while I was away, and my interest in editing Wikipedia waned at around the same time, so I didn't re-request it. My interest has partially returned, though, so I would now like to request permanent TPE. I'm confident in my ability to avoid causing any ruckus; I didn't get into any conflict during my trial, and I made sure to test changes and ensure they wouldn't be controversial.

(Note: I'm relatively certain this'll be asked about, so: my Gnomehub I created during my trial does include a few regex searches for things that might be controversial to simplify (although maybe I'm just wildly overestimating the elevation of the "controversial" bar), but those don't serve as statements that simplifying those would never be controversial; those searches might never be used to make such edits, and just lay dormant as an indication of "this pattern of code might not be perfect in an objective sense" to be used if I think simplifying it would be appropriate and non-controversial. Sorry if I'm not making any sense here.) {{Lemondoge|Talk|Contributions}} 19:33, 29 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
