I have been editing for a few years now and have the required experience. My primary reasons for this permission are moving article name correction and moving articles/drafts without leaving redirects. I deal with this issue now by mostly AFD/CSD. I also new pages reviewer, which sometimes have to moved to draft space. I have a number of moves under my belt, check my contribution. This will help me with my contributions.-Nahal(T) 11:24, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
NahalAhmed, two concerns. First concern, you have been actively editing for 8 months (I do not count the three edits you made in May 2018); why say "a few years now"? Second concern: the R2s of Mount Cottrell massacre and Irrum Manzil metro station, both of which were perfectly reasonable redirect titles and definitely not eligible for R2. Why lie, and why do you think those redirects should have been deleted? Primefac (talk) 14:30, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
I also note that moving rail stations to the capped versions is against consistency with similar articles. Though I am sympathetic to the notion that these might be proper names, the moves were probably not uncontroversial. Dekimasuよ! 14:41, 8 December 2019 (UTC)


During my seven years as a Wikipedia editor, i have made close to 16,000 edits and made close to 1,000 articles,[1] including 170 articles in the main space[2] and more than 400 categories.[3] In August 2018 i was awarded the Editor of the Week Award, partially for my work on Wikipedia categories. With page mover rights i will be able to move categories and thus perform category work more efficiently. Krakkos (talk) 18:15, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
Not done., categories can be moved without this right; Additionally, there is no RM participation, and both recent RM/TR requests have been contested.

I am with the New Pages Patrol and often encounter new articles that are poorly titled. I frequently move such pages to correct titles via simple moves. But accordingly, I also frequently encounter situations in which a simple move is impossible because of an old redirect (round-robins), then I must make a request for a technical move. This happens a lot during my editing work so I hope to save some work for others by doing it myself. I do not expect any need to get involved with category moves or the title blacklist. Thanks. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 21:30, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
In general this looks pretty good to me. Can you explain the result of this move for me? Dekimasuよ! 02:04, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
