Requests for BAG membership[edit]

Requests to join the Bot Approvals Group are currently made here, although other methods have been proposed. Users wishing to join BAG, or to nominate another user to become a member, should start a new nomination page via the form below (replacing "UserName" with the nominee's) and transclude the discussion in a section below. Please note that notification to WP:AN, WP:VPM, WT:BOT, and WP:BON is required. After a suitable length of time (usually one week unless the nomination has not received a reasonable level of support), the discussion will be closed by a bureaucrat.

Need more BAG members?[edit]

A user came to complaining that the BRFA process is slow at the moment. Need another user to help out?—cyberpowerChat:Online 01:11, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
