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.

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!  ~~Swarm~~  {talk}  07:29, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

User just popped a speedy tag on an article that is having AfD discussion. WP:CIR -Roxy, the dog. wooF 09:25, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
@Roxy the dog: If the criteria in question applies unambiguously, placing a speedy tag on a page undergoing an AfD is perfectly fine in my experience. The patrolling admin can then assess whether the criteria applies and either speedy close the AfD or remove the tag and let the discussion run it's course.

You're not wrong on that point, but that's not actually the only issue. User was removing uncontested PRODs to open up AfD discussions.[1][2][3] Resetting a BLPPROD.[4] Declined CSD tagging.[5] Re-nominating open AfD.[6] PRODDING an open AfD with a unanimous delete consensus.[7] Nominating an attempted AfC draft which was mistakenly created in the mainspace for deletion.[8] Then, when called out on it on their talk page, they actually blamed the episode on their WP:LITTLEBROTHER, for which they are now indef blocked.

User:Mgbo120

I would like to be a reviewer for NPR and help in clearing the backlog. I've been editing since 2015. I am familiar with content policies and guidelines. Yes, I have experience in moving pages WHEN NECESSARY. I moved the pages I created from draft to mainspace. I know exactly how to use the "Move" option and I can only use it when it is necessary. Thanks Mgbo120 (talk) 08:49, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
Not done. So, one basic criterion for this permission is "500 undeleted edits to mainspace that clearly demonstrate knowledge of page quality control". You only borderline meet this edit count, and the only reason you even reached the minimum is because you were spamming minor edits here and here. But, even if I do give you that one in recognition of your created articles, I can't give you "experience with moving pages in accordance with guidelines". That guideline is not looking for the basic competence to use the move function, and it's not looking for drafts moving to mainspace, it's looking for actual experience in changing article titles, that demonstrates a nuanced understanding of article naming conventions, which are incredibly complex. Also, you've only been active for less than two months, so experience is a concern. Also, the fact that you're typing in all caps makes me question your communication skills, and I don't have much else to compare it to, since you haven't even used your first article or user talk page yet. And the fact that you submitted a duplicate request rather than simply reply to me in the same thread makes me question your competence in terms of communication as well. Not even on a personal level, but just in terms of understanding all the technicalities of editing. Please take a few more months to become experienced here before requesting extended privileges. Regards,  ~~Swarm~~  {talk}  00:58, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Thank you. But I have to make a few things clear here. I only re-requested afresh in response to your advice to me to "re-request" in my earlier application. I could have replied you there but I thought I was to make a new request as you posited. Perhaps I misunderstood your advice. Sorry for that.

Secondly, I only typed a few words in capital letters to buttress my points concerning the "Move" question. If that's wrong, I'm sorry too. Will learn.

Thirdly, those few edits you pointed were not spammy, I only improved the pages involved by carefully removing the red links one after the other. I did so to avoid missing or removing any of those names mistakenly.

I've been active since 2015, but I only become much active in the last two months as time permitted me. I only decided to use my free time to edit. That notwithstanding, I believe I have experience editing. I don't know it all. I'll continue to learn and improve. Would re-apply after some months if time permits.

I've been a user for a little while now, and like to think I have a reasonable track record and some experience applying various policies (not just WP:VD). I was recently reminded of the existence of pending changes, and have noticed some backlog issues from time to time that I'd like to help address. I can already revert obvious vandalism (examples 1 2 3), but I think quickly letting constructive edits go live is just as important. I actually ended up with an edit of my own in PC today (amending a constructive but incomplete PC), and that does tend to erode your desire to put work into improving the project.

Okay, that's good, however, you haven't been issuing warnings, which shows me that you don't have sufficient experience in anti-vandalism work for rollback. Issuing the correct standard templated warnings is a fundamental part of anti-vandalism work, and should accompany any revert. The entire anti-vandalism system relies on a series of four escalating warnings preceding a block. Not warning allows vandals to continue vandalizing for longer without being blocked. Feel free to re-request once you can show us that you have been correctly issuing warnings. You can come to me directly and I'll be happy to grant this to you.  ~~Swarm~~  {talk}  00:20, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your explanation, but I almost certainly will never bother with this again. If we make vandalising Wikipedia easier than reverting the vandalism, I think we're doing something wrong. Thanks and nevermind. Dr. Vogel (talk) 01:32, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
@DrVogel: Sorry to hear that. You should not take this personally or be discouraged. I know you're experienced and I'm not trying to give you a hard time. However, we have a standardized anti-vandalism system that has been in place since mid-2005. It's very simple and straightforward: revert and warn. The community's norms do not allow us to block vandals that have not been sufficiently warned. Rollback is granted to experienced anti-vandalism patrollers. It also enables access to specialized anti-vandalism tools which automate the revert→warn→report process. We need to be able to see that people have a good grasp of the fundamentals of this work before granting extended access. That you show us you can competently issue warnings when reverting vandalism is not a tall order. However, if that seems unreasonable to you, there's not much I can do about it.  ~~Swarm~~  {talk}  02:41, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Recently I had to revert a user's edits who had repeatedly blanked the article Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Demitra Sealy. I was able to undo the edits, however because they vandalised it multiple times, some minor text I couldn't restore, only from the last one. I at least wish to rollback to when the article was archived, and if not given permission to do so then to at least request a moderator to rollback for me. --Danozzz (talk) 08:03, 15 January 2019 (UTC) Danozzz (talk) 08:03, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
  • @Danozzz: Rollback actually only works on consecutive edits made by the same person, so it wouldn't help in this case. However, I did revert back to the old revision as requested. I was able to do this using Twinkle. Twinkle allows you to easily restore any prior revision of an article (the option comes up when viewing diffs). If you haven't enabled it, I'd strongly recommend it. It makes a lot of different things very easy. Marking this request as Not done.  ~~Swarm~~  {talk}  00:09, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
