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.

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.
  • 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 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 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. There is no set number of edits that must be done, but a general rule of thumb is that a user is Extended confirmed. However, a user must be Confirmed or auto-confirmed user to add requests to the page.
  • 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, 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 don't anticipate heavy use of this tool, but as I have a tendency to do article overhauls as a minimal number of revisions, each with high deltas, I'd like to be able to use it as quality control after aforementioned edits to ensure that I'm not ameliorating some issues only to create new ones in my wake. Though once I feel more comfortable with its toolset, I could foresee adding it to my workflow within WikiProject Schools.

@Primefac: Sorry it's not higher on my list of priorities, kind sir, but I won't lie to you and tell you that it is. Unlike some other programming languages, CSS remains a genuine labyrinth to me and my ability to craft functional solutions to everyday problems isn't even rudimentary; layout syntax and aesthetics in general have always been a struggle for me despite my fondness for them. Without being glib or disrespectful, I shall again take refuge with my favorite of the Five Pillars: WP:5P5 and pray that you'll be patient with me.

I mainly work on categories and would use AWB to help ensure the categories are complete, that they contain all articles/ sub-categories they are supposed to contain and no other. I have made some erroneous edits with AWB in the past and do not intend to repeat that again. I have recently been using AWB a great deal in Commons and have not made such errors there. Thanks.

In terms of basic requirements, in addition to being a Wikipedia user for 15 years, I've made over 1,200 mainspace edits, all non-automated and mostly manual (until using Twinkle of late), and have been particularly active in the AfD space. I'm particularly interested in the WikiProject - Deletion sorting lists and the AWB tool appears like it would be particularly helpful in this area. AfDs, CfDs, and RfDs seem to be where I will be focusing more than 80% of my Wikipedia editing. --Doug Mehus (talk) 23:13, 11 October 2019 (UTC) Doug Mehus (talk) 23:13, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
 Automated comment This user has approximately 486 non-automated edits in the mainspace. MusikBot talk 00:20, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
How up-to-date is this? My total edits is more than that and most of them are non-automated. I'm going by the "Preferences" screen. Is it not counting minor edits? I almost always tag my manual edits as 'minor' if I'm just updating citations, removing wikilinks, and the like. Doug Mehus (talk) 23:23, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
Doug, you have 517 edits to the article space, with 48 semi-automated edits from things like Twinkle. Thus, your count is 469. Also, if you're looking at WikiProject Deletion sorting for the purposes of sorting AFDs, then User:Enterprisey/delsort will be far more useful than AWB. Not looking to deny you access at the moment, just making sure you're using the right tools for the job! Primefac (talk) 11:42, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
Primefac, yeah, I noticed that afterward that Twinkle edits were still counted as semi-automated and much of my edits have been other namespaces, especially Talk, Template, and Wikipedia. Thanks for that tool, and the deletion sorting categorization is useful but already included in Twinkle which works very well (and is built-in). Are you aware of any features besides that in delsort? Also, are you aware of any semi-automated tools that can remove multiple wikilinks from the page one is editing? There are a lot of school district pages that link to their school pages, which have since been deleted and redirect back to the school district page. Twinkle can easily remove backlinks, but not links on the same page. So, I'd like to have an automated or semi-automated way of correcting these same page double redirects. AWB may or may not do this, but that would be one of the primary reasons for using it. Hope that helps clarify. If there's another tool besides AWB for such meta-editing tasks, I'm definitely open to that, but haven't been able to find anything. Doug Mehus (talk) 16:34, 12 October 2019 (UTC)


Hi, I'm looking to help out more and I'd like to investigate using AWB to fix typos, grammar slips, ENGVAR on categorised pages and the like. I have around 3,000 edits and I like doing small, useful things. Vashti (talk) 20:32, 12 October 2019 (UTC)


I'd like to use AWB to fix typos - I have over 20,000 edits and have been going through Wikipedia:Typo Team/moss/A this morning but hopefully AWB will speed up the process! Bellowhead678 (talk) 11:20, 13 October 2019 (UTC)


I put in an earlier request here that was accepted: [1]. I'm asking for my permission to be removed; I have not been using as it as much as previously planned since my computer charger broke a few months ago. I've been making all my edits on my tablet since then, and even if it was technically possible to use AWB this way, I wouldn't be comfortable doing so. Clovermoss (talk) 03:06, 15 October 2019 (UTC)


Have used AWB for years but just discovered my registration ceased when I handed back the admin tools in May.[2]. Have a few tasks I'd like to do in Australian and early modern Royal Navy categorisation, for which AWB would be handy. I have around 15,000 non-automated mainspace edits.

Hello, I would like to have the new page reviewer rights to help with the backlog of pages to review. I can help in eliminating spam, a lot of times when I create articles it stays unreviewed for several weeks, so I would like to help out in this way. I have been helping Wikipedia to stay away from Spam and have deleted several spam pages. I have been working at New Pages Patrol without the rights and I have been active at AFD (successfully nominated and deleted over 50 pages), the right will help to clear the backlog. I feel with my experience I will be able to successfully and efficiently review new articles and pages.
I also have over 1400 total edits and 34 articles created, none of them are deleted. I have also learned what is WP:GNG and what are WP:RS and really to help Wikipedia to stay away from Spam. The right will be useful if I could patrol them as well as doing the manual of style tidy up and categorization. Thanks Meeanaya (talk) 05:44, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
(Non-administrator comment) Meeanaya might need a bit more experience before reviewing new pages, per their comment yesterday: "As far as what I have understand from WP:GNG, if a topic is notable, it is not essential to have sources, it is good to have verifiable sources for it." Schazjmd (talk) 15:20, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
Schazjmd, I think you have missed the context of the conversation, user CASSIOPEIA has moved two my pages to draft in the last 30 days due to lack of sources; which is in a way was incorrect as it was a page for village. Both of these pages got approved again through WP:AFC within 48 hours. Last example was Jaswantgarh (Udaipur). The existing New page reviewer (CASSIOPEIA) had missed Template:WikiProject Cities. Meeanaya (talk) 18:37, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
If you will look at my AFDs you will probably some of the great work when several senior editors were wrong (including admins) and I have pulled page to mainspace from draft. Please review this example Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2019 August 1 and my work at his AFD. I have flagged over 50 pages through AFD and successfully deleted these even when they were on the Wiki from 3+ years and really failed WP:GNG. This is a very clear proof of my substantial understanding of WP:GNG, if I will get the New Page Reviewer right, no spam will be approved by me. My comment on CASSIOPEIA was a little vague to find the exact same mistake and he was again proven wrong while curating the pages I have created. Meeanaya (talk) 18:52, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
I apologize if I misunderstood, Meeanaya. Schazjmd (talk) 20:38, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Not done. What is up with the duplicate requests? El_C 17:37, 15 October 2019 (UTC)



I fight vandalism through SWViewer, so I would use the rollback function. I am already rollbacker and patroller on cswiki. Thank you. MrJaroslavik (talk) 08:05, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

I would like to request rollback rights so that I can help in the administration of Wikipedia instead of just editing articles, Thanks. Eschoryii (talk) 09:06, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

User:Hogwarts Portal

An editor has entirely altered the color codes from various tables in the page - Femina Miss India. It was not discussed and no reason is given for this alterations. It is very difficult to revert it back to its original version without Rollback. It would be helpful to prevent such instances abd vandalism even in other articles of Wikipedia.

Not done It seems like you are requesting this because you occasionally run into vandalism, and not because you pla on making it a focus of your work. I don't see any real experience in combating vandalism., which is one of the things we look for when assessing these requests. Given that, I would suggest that WP:TWINKLE would be a much better tool for you to use, and you can just switch it on anytime in your preferences without any need for advanced permissions.
