|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.
|If this page has been recently modified, it may not reflect the most recent changes.|
Please purge this page to view the most recent changes.
Several permissions are requested and handled elsewhere:
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.
Full instructions at Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Administrator instructions
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.
I have created 80 articles and 4000+ edit counts in English wikipedia. Most of the articles I have created are reviewed by many reviewers without any further editing on those pages from their side (in most cases). I know this as I received notifications about my articles being reviewed. I think that the reviewers of my articles are usually satisfied with me, it's just my thought. So, I think I should not give a burden to the reviewers who are checking on the list of articles pending for review in this wiki. So, I wish to achieve the autopatrolled user right. In other wikis, I have autopatrolled user rights in Wikimedia Commons and Meta wiki, IP block exemption user right in Meitei wikipedia.

I'm currently adding articles related to species of lichens as part of the Wikiproject Fungi Lichens Taskforce (that is the only time talking about lichen has ever sounded cool). I expect all of the lichen articles to be short and simple as there isn't a lot of academic research published on lichens, just enough to pass WP:GNG. Additionally I'm trying to improve and expand articles on amateur radio related topics and have authored a few articles about new radios and have brought back a few from redirection. I currently have authored 22 articles and resurrected/saved a couple more, I know it says 25 but I'm sure by tomorrow I'll have finished at least three more lichen articles. I have a strong understanding of the rules and am currently an active reviewer for Articles for Creation and am a New Page Patroller, have recently completed NPP School, and am active on AfD. I'm honest and upfront with my mistakes and errors and work hard to learn from them. Thank you for your time in reviewing my request, if you have any questions or concerns please let me know and I will be more than happy to address them. Dr vulpes (💬 • 📝) 07:14, 24 August 2022 (UTC)
Requesting autopatrol privileges for Poli Hunt they're creating a lot of articles on Indian politicians. I've reviewed many of their articles and I haven't noticed any problems with them while doing NPP. They have over 5,000 edits, have created quite a few articles, and seems to have their act together. Dr vulpes (💬 • 📝) 07:11, 25 August 2022 (UTC) Dr vulpes (💬 • 📝) 07:11, 25 August 2022 (UTC)
Created over 100 articles. 6 have been deleted, most recently in 2020. New creations do not appear to require attention from NPP. * Pppery * it has begun... 15:03, 26 August 2022 (UTC)
@MPGuy2824 has authored 632 articles and authors about one or two a month right now but does have large influxes of articles at times. They are a NPP, have no copyright violations, no blocks, and no behavioral related sanctions that I can find or have seen. Requesting autopatrol privileges to prevent strain on the NPP backlog. Thank you for your time and if this request is not appropriate or if I've made a mistake please let me know. Dr vulpes (💬 • 📝) 23:57, 26 August 2022 (UTC)
Non-Admin Comment: Impressive DIVINE (talk) 13:36, 27 August 2022 (UTC)
I have created plenty of articles recently, especially this month, without any issues, and am in the process of creating more. None of the articles I have created overall have been deleted and I have had a couple moved to draft but these were early last year and were among the early articles I created; they were moved back to main not long after and since then I have been consistent. I understand that there is a backlog for NPP, so I am requesting autopatrolled rights to reduce this burden on NPP. Thanks. Mellk (talk) 22:47, 27 August 2022 (UTC)
I'd like to mass replace file names. Sebastian Wallroth (talk) 08:11, 16 August 2022 (UTC)
Large scale categorization, mostly sports-related. Crowsus (talk) 08:35, 26 August 2022 (UTC)
I would like to use it to do mass cleanup for articles in the WP:Vital articles list, such as removing excessive (>3) pictures from the lead, remove double spaces, etc. I'm not likely to use AWB for pages other than those in the list. CactiStaccingCrane (talk) 10:48, 29 August 2022 (UTC)
Alternate account of ThatIPEditor, since I forget my 2FA keys at home. I can't verify with that account right now but feel free to send me an email with a code to something to my main account. Would be nice if I could also have EC granted. ThatNotSoIPEditor (talk) 19:36, 26 August 2022 (UTC)
confirmed? Would a month be enough to get five more edits, or do you want longer? Sdrqaz (talk) 22:53, 26 August 2022 (UTC)
Hi, I am a Wikimedia UK Trainer and Computer Science PhD student at the University of St Andrews. I would appreciate granting me the event coordinator's permission for the following events taking place on 06 Sep, 13 Sep, 20 Sep, and 27 Sep. Here is the events' page on Eventbrite. Many thanks, Abd Alsattar Ardati (talk) 10:15, 30 August 2022 (UTC)
I would like to help out with the new page review backlog. I am currently an AFC reviwer and I also fight vandalism. I have read through the reviewing tutorial, deletion policy, and general notability guideline. Thank you. Ts12rActalk to me 18:14, 27 August 2022 (UTC)
I am editing Wikipedia since two years and I am an active article creator. I am familiar with Wikipedia's rules and guidelines. I would like to contribute by reviewing new articles. I will be happy to help reducing the backlogs as well as would be happy to help new editors by reviewing articles. Batamore (talk) 11:51, 28 August 2022 (UTC)
Reason for requesting new page reviewer rights Hello. I decided a month back to give reviewing pages a go. I have just completed NPP school and was tutored by the lovely Atsme. My pass record is here. I have created a dozen articles, none of which have been deleted. I have also participated in over 300 AFD’s with a 90% green rate. I believe I will make a valuable contribution to this area. Thank you. MaxnaCarta (talk) 15:41, 29 August 2022 (UTC)
I am a long term editor, many a times I have come across vandals moving pages as per their whims. I have to often put request to some Admins to again move back page to old title. I hope permission is granted. Thanks Jethwarp (talk) 11:46, 18 August 2022 (UTC)
I've been regularly reviewing new user pages for the last few months, and in doing so, I've left quite a few pages that looked like drafts in the user page because, as far as I'm aware, technically drafts are allowed to be started there. It wasthat I should instead be moving these to the draft space, as new users may not know that they should be starting these in the draft space. I would like page mover so that I can do this and not leave a redirect behind as the user's main user page. It would also be helpful for me when draftifying articles, something that I've taken up since mid-July. Hey man im josh (talk) 11:45, 29 August 2022 (UTC)
I've been editing Wikipedia for multiple years now and have over 2,000 edits. I also frequent Special:RecentChanges and have a good understanding of what constitutes constructive and unconstructive editing. Having pending changes reviewer rights would allow me to make a more positive contribution to the community. Partofthemachine (talk) 06:08, 7 August 2022 (UTC)
Hello, I am applying for this role. I am fairly active on Wikipedia and have a history of constructive, timely, well-sourced edits. Geopony (talk) 11:07, 17 August 2022 (UTC)
Hello, I'm reapplying since I believe I've gained enough experience on Wikipedia and have been active ever since. Would love to hear a constructive response. Cheers!! Rejoy2003 (talk) 11:14, 21 August 2022 (UTC)
Reason for requesting pending changes reviewer rights $tar Anonymous (talk) 18:53, 23 August 2022 (UTC) I work a lot in the field of vandalism, and I see some vandalism happening in the pending changes section of articles and I would like to correct the vandalism. I also feel that a lot of pending changes happen and that they are not checked fast enough.
Just wanted to apply for Pending changes reviewer if i could help the articles which are protected. Nupamjo (talk) 05:51, 30 August 2022 (UTC)
Reason for requesting rollback rights
As an avid Wikipedia user with experience in distinguishing vandalism from legitimate edits, I have performed some edit reverts by non-Wikipedia accounts. Being registered on the site for 1 month with more than 1,400 edits, I can proof read and identify to witness any changes and see if I could make a potential improvement to the respective article.
