Administrator instructions

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.

Current requests

I have been helping in creating accounts on acc tool, I had account creator rights, which were given to me by @KrakatoaKatie: and it was very helpful. I would like to continue with it and help in account creation. Additionally these rights would help me in real life events too.

I have created 40+ articles and only 2 deleted, but that was when I was still a newbie. I usually create notable Nigeria and football related articles showing that I know much about general notability guidelines. I'm working on creating more stand-alone articles for some of The Headies categories that are still yet to be created. For sure, getting this right will reduce the huge backlog at New pages patrol and the much workload on the hardworking New page patrollers, now that the holidays are coming soon.

I’m active at AfC even and accepted/declined many articles. If I’ll be given these rights then NPP work will be reduced and my time of requesting someone to review will be saved. Harshil want to talk? 02:53, 2 December 2019 (UTC)


Had no intention of applying for any special right on Wikipedia but circumstances are forcing me to do so. It is quite disheartening to see your article crying for a review but no one has time to do the same for you. It is, of course, understandable as to why this happens. And that is why I am applying for this right in order to reduce the burden of our community. I testify that I fully understand what this right means. I am also familiar with Wikipedia policies and guidelines. I create contents on religion and philosophy. Created BLPs of people from different religious and philosophical background with particular focus on Islam which I happen to know a little about. Of 33 articles that I created, two got deleted. Of these two, one was mistakenly created in a different language. The other one was due to my failure, as a newbie, to realise what 'sufficient coverage' meant to be. Well, I understand it now. Other 31 articles have zero percent chance of getting deleted. Looking forward to creating some quality contents in future. I believe it would encourage me as well. Thanks.Mosesheron (talk) 18:31, 2 December 2019 (UTC)


I have created some 30+ articles and am well familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Seeing New Pages Feed's backlog, I am hereby requesting for autopatrolled permission to help lower the burden of the hardworking New Page Reviewers. Shemtov613 (talk) 19:40, 2 December 2019 (UTC)


I have created +100 articles here (1 deleted when I was new user), on Polish officials mostly. I am familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. I am also editor of plwiki where I have created ca 500 new articles. Niegodzisie (talk) 23:19, 2 December 2019 (UTC)


I requested for this rights in 2016/2017 but was denied due to the fact that I had only 8 articles at the time and was told to reapply when I had created at least 25 articles as of now I have 30 articles and none have ever been deleted. But that isn’t what’s important. What is, however is assisting the NPR who have a lot of pages to patrol/Review as of now I can observe 6000+ unreviewed articles. I have grasped the concept of notability and thanks to a more experienced user I have also grasped the imperative nature of WP:RS and hereby seek to serve the community in this regard. In the spirit of transparency I want it to be noted that i have requested a G7 for two drafts of mine due to insufficient sources to substantiate claims made in the article. Celestina007 (talk) 18:49, 7 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,[3] including 170 articles in the main space[4] and more than 400 categories.[5] In August 2018 i was awarded the Editor of the Week Award, partially for my work on creating articles. With Autopatrolled rights i will be able to create additional articles more efficiently. Krakkos (talk) 18:59, 12 December 2019 (UTC)

I would like to use AWB for aiding with multiple repetitive changes and adding links across many articles. TurboGUY (talk) 07:13, 28 November 2019 (UTC)
TurboGUY, what do you mean by "adding links"? Primefac (talk) 14:49, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
Linking words/phrases/people etc. to articles that now exist about that subject, having previously not (specifically the latter). TurboGUY (talk) 16:09, 8 December 2019 (UTC)


In German Wikipedia, I am active moving articles when the disambiguation type is to be changed (latest example). An automated edit summary via AWB would help saving a lot of time. --KnightMove (talk) 19:48, 30 November 2019 (UTC) KnightMove (talk) 19:48, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
It's not possible for non-admins to move pages using AWB. That type of move also does not seem like a thing happening on a large scale. ‑‑Trialpears (talk) 20:02, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
I don't want to do that. As mentioned, I only want an automated edit summary like "Linkfix after move of XYZ to XYZ (TV channel). This helps saving a lot of time. For my current move, those are like ~1000 pages to be edited.
Further, I can't judge the situation in English Wikipedia, but in German Wikipedia those moves happen somewhat regularily. Each of them causes a lot of work, as described. --KnightMove (talk) 20:20, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
Ah okay, then perhaps user:Qwertyytrewqqwerty/DisamAssist would be of interest? It's a script specifically made for this purpose without requiring AWB access. These moves happen regularly through the WP:RM forum, all I meant was that they usually don't require the moving part automated. ‑‑Trialpears (talk) 20:37, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
I'm not sure whether this works in German Wikipedia. Anyway, correctiong links is not only about disambiguating them, but also about fixing links to parenthetical disambiguations to be deleted. In the current example, I change the links to de:Stephansdom (Wien), as this parenthetical disambiguation is liable to deletion afterwards. --KnightMove (talk) 21:22, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
@KnightMove: On enwiki, we generally only delete redirects if there is a seperate consensus to do so at WP:RFD. The old parenthetical disambiguation stays in place generally without issue. –MJLTalk 05:35, 2 December 2019 (UTC)
KnightMove, I'm just looking to clarify - are you wanting to use AWB to move pages, or rename existing links after a page move? Primefac (talk) 14:50, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
Only for the latter, and only for an automated edit summary. --KnightMove (talk) 16:42, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
Your second comment is confusing - you can't just use AWB for an edit summary. What is being changed on the page? Primefac (talk) 16:59, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
@Primefac: Rename existing links after the page move - manually! - and this way preparing the deletion of the post-move redirect when it's not to be preserved according to the rules. For this, I want support by an automated edit summary, as described in Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/User_manual#Edit_summary. Or do I misunderstand something here? --KnightMove (talk) 17:24, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
I think we're both saying the same thing but misunderstanding each other. AWB is useful for making multiple repetitive edits, such as changing a wikilink after a page move. An edit summary is included in those edits.
However, I see no moves in your history since 2018; are you looking for AWB access on the German Wikipedia? Primefac (talk) 18:28, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
Honestly I've missed that this page is for English Wikipedia only - I thought you need a global permission. Well then, sorry for the time spent. --KnightMove (talk) 17:35, 10 December 2019 (UTC)

  Request withdrawn, was a misunderstanding. --KnightMove (talk) 17:35, 10 December 2019 (UTC)

No worries, I'm at least glad we cleared it up. As a minor note, I've changed your template to "withdrawn" just for "the record". Primefac (talk) 19:31, 10 December 2019 (UTC)

Mass message sender

New page reviewer


Hi everyone! I'm relatively new to Wikipedia, and I've been happily chipping away for some time. I've mainly been involved in creating articles about notable computer scientists, with a particular emphasis on female scientists (WiR WikiProject was my entry point!). I've tried to improve technology-related articles via copy editing and sourcing when possible as well, and been rather active with categorization lately, having found this surprisingly gratifying. I am usually not keen on getting involved in deletion discussions and such, but rather improving articles that I know would otherwise be prone to nomination. When I just started editing I was rather surprised at the lack of knowledge regarding policies like WP:ACADEMIC, which I'm quite familiar with due to my personal interest and its practical application. So, in short, I am keen on helping new and valuable editors improve pages (particularly those I have particular expertise on), given I have seen firsthand how a bit of help in suitable times can translate into huge differences in outcomes, both for Wikipedia and for new users' sustained collaborations going forward. I think the reviewing tool might come in handy for this purpose. I would love to give this a might not be my thing, but as C.S. Lewis said: "the very man who has argued you down will sometimes be found, years later, to have been influenced by what you said." PK650 (talk) 04:04, 9 December 2019 (UTC)
Thanks PK650 for your interest in New Page Patrolling. In looking over your page creations I agree you have a good handle on NACDEMIC. There's certainly lots of productive content work to be done in that realm and Wikipedia always needs good content creators (and people willing to improve the imperfect creations of others). I also agree with your self-assessment that you don't have much involvement in other places, like maintenance tagging and deletion, or notability outside of NACADEMIC. While ever New Page Patroller has areas they'll patrol and areas they'll skip this permission needs to go to people who can accurately patrol a wide range of topics and who are willing to get involved in deletion efforts where appropriate. As such I'm going to mark this  Not done for now. If as you continue your good work on Wikipedia you find your interests expanding and get more experience in others areas of skill that New Page Patrollers need please come back. Your disposition seems very well suited indeed to NPP. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 15:43, 10 December 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, buddy! I'll certainly get involved in those tasks and learn about the entire process in its complexity. I do believe deciding which articles to keep and their improvement is of extreme importance, and should be tended to with great reverence. Deleting is vital to the encyclopedia, but we wouldn't have one if we didn't take care of the knowledge within. PK650 (talk) 01:15, 11 December 2019 (UTC)

Page mover


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,[10] including 170 articles in the main space[11] and more than 400 categories.[12] 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. Primefac (talk) 21:19, 12 December 2019 (UTC) Updated, forgot the change back to PGM-only, but other reasons (and CfD's existence) still stand. Primefac (talk) 23:14, 12 December 2019 (UTC)


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)

Pending changes reviewer

User:Prahlad balaji

I'm an extended confirmed user who's been editing Wikipedia for about three or four years now and have made at least 4,930 edits. I am a member of several WikiProjects that aim to reduce vandalism, and when I'm alone, I try to stop it, too. If I got reviewer rights, it would make it easier for me to watch articles and reduce vandalism on them. Plus, it will be a big help to the Wikipedia community, because I am very good at this kind of stuff. I've read WP:RPC many times and understand it fully. I will never cause vandalism and only hope to help reduce it. Thank you very much. -PRAHLADBalaji 03:11, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

@Prahlad balaji: I am still waiting for this editor to answer a couple of questions on their talk page, questions about edits that I just do not understand. And I just noticed that they claim to have a doppelganger account, User:Prahlad Balaji--but that's not an account at all, just as User:Pterodactyl (see their talk page) wasn't one either. Drmies (talk) 04:02, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

@Drmies: I've answered your questions fully. Nothing malicious about what I did. Thanks. -PRAHLADBalaji 18:32, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

@Prahlad balaji: OK. I deleted that page with the capital B. The sockmaster--well, your edit didn't change how it's rendered, and it was kind of odd to see someone edit the page of a sock blocked six years ago. Thank you, Drmies (talk) 17:01, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

@Drmies: You're welcome. I've also created the User:Prahlad S Balaji account, and it's not just a userpage. It's an actual doppelganger account, and its only edit is its userpage, so you'll see its edit count as only 1. Thanks. -PRAHLADBalaji 18:36, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

User:A Red Cherry

I would like to have access to this ability, given that I have been editing periodically on Wikipedia for years now and have received some acclaim for this work, mostly minor edits, fixes, and corrections along with dealing with vandalism in those instances. There's many pages which I think I could contribute to help the pace of accepting unproblematic edits, and I have of course read WP:RPC. Thank you very much!

I'm an extended confirmed user with over 1900 edits. I have reverted vandalism edits before, and I would like to help prevent vandalism. I have read through WP:Pending changes and WP:RPC. Thank you! - Iamreallygoodatcheckers (talk) 01:36, 3 December 2019 (UTC)


I would like the permission to help me with vandalism, as most of my work are reverting vandalism. I got the permission declined in the past month but I have gotten more experience. I have read the Wikipedia:Pending changes and Wikipedia:Reviewing pending changes. Thanks. The4lines (talk) 18:14, 5 December 2019 (UTC)

I was granted PCR rights back in September for 3 months, I would like to request a permanent extension so I can review pending changes. Andrew Base (talk) 08:27, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

I was an inactive editor who recently decided to contribute more actively to Wikipedia this year beyond the sporadic edits I used to do. I have been active at combating vandalism, improving existing articles, and sourcing for references. I also understand the copyright, BLP and the other policies and have learnt (and still learning) how to apply them. In combating vandalism, the rollback permission together with Twinkle have served me well. However, I realise that there are times that valid edits being held up due to pending changes not being reviewed be it vandalism edits or not. As such, I would like to request for the pending changes reviewer permissions. robertsky (talk) 16:35, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

User:Hog Farm

Okay, so I know my account hasn't been active near as long as a lot of people. But I'm extended confirmed and have about 1,100 edits, so that ought to qualify as a verifiable editing track record. I've been rather active since joining Wikipedia, and I spend a lot of time fighting vandalism, so I have experience to see what it looks like. I'm also familiar with AIV if it comes to that. Giving me this permission would help me fight vandalism, promote good editing, and save time for other editors. Hog Farm (talk) 05:28, 10 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,[14] including 170 articles in the main space.[15] Though generally contributing to Wikipedia by writing content, i would like to contribute also by reviewing edits made by others.

I want the rollback precisely because I want to use STiki, I have an idea when use rollback. Actually i'm interest to more Work using Rollback for Vandalism and disruptive edit. i have lot work using rollback for protected. if i get, Having this user's rights will be a lot easier for me to work with and I through extend the rollback safe from a lot of other Vandalism edits. (I have a better experience now because my previous decline here by admin for some reason, but at this moment i fix it, an also right now using [1] edit summary, [2] CSD is declining now than ever before. Though some decline, but later i was able to remove article via nomination. I think I am eligible for this right. In addition I've extended confirmed user, pending changes reviewer , new page reviewer rights on English Wikipedia. I have a request from the admin if not eligible, ask me any questions). I hope that my contribution will helpful. Thanks-Nahal(T) 12:07, 4 December 2019 (UTC)
I see comments on your talk page one to two months old which suggest that at the time you had a bit lighter understanding of our policies. Whereas I do not think you will abuse the rollback userright, I would prefer a bit more experience before granting the flag. Please continue your good work and reapply in about three months.--Ymblanter (talk) 10:34, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
Ymblanter, Thanks you so much for review my request and your best opinion. Although I have had a better experience now than I did rollback related work two or three months ago. I hope to do more with Wikipedia rules & policies in the future. If you think I am not currently qualified then I will apply after the next two to three months showing my good work, ( it's would have good for me, if i'm on Rollback trial period for a while or I'm withdrawn my request) Thanks again.-Nahal(T) 11:04, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

User:Mike Novikoff

I can clearly see that for a Twinkle user like me this permission would be nothing but a hat. Nevertheless, I ask for one so as to get an approval for almost all of my edits since this April, and to try tools like Huggle or STiki if my local software eventually permits that. Please also note that I have this permission at Wikidata since this June, and vandalism fighting is the main thing that I do both here and there. — Mike Novikoff 03:50, 10 December 2019 (UTC)
Hi Mike Novikoff, do I understand correctly that you currently do not intend to (or can not, for technical reasons) use the requested permission? ~ ToBeFree (talk) 20:48, 11 December 2019 (UTC)

With access to Rollback, i will be able to combat such vandalism more efficiently. Krakkos (talk) 18:55, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
