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.

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.
  • 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 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.

User:Johannes Schade

I want to use AWB to maintain a number of articles that I am interested in. These are, at least for now, about 40 biographies of Irish persons. These biographies have Family trees and Timelines that have not yet found their ideal format and I would like to be able to edit them all in one go. With many thanks Johannes Schade (talk) 11:23, 24 October 2019 (UTC) Johannes Schade (talk) 11:23, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
Johannes Schade, is there a discussion where this "ideal format" is being discussed, or are people just taking BOLD actions over and over until someone decides it's "good enough"? Primefac (talk) 12:00, 26 October 2019 (UTC)
Dear Primefac. I have created these family trees and timelines on these 40 articles (e.g. Helen MacCarty. Surely, it would be nice if somebody else came along and helped me to improve them, but for the time being I am alone. I do not intend to make automatic changes on other family trees or timelines. I hope to find other users that create or maintain family trees and timelines in biographies similar to those to which I have contributed, but I have not found them yet. Then, certainly, a consensus should be found about how such family trees and timelines should be presented in Wikipedia. With thanks. Johannes Schade (talk) 15:46, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi, I want to be able to use this—I need access to it to use JavaScript Wiki Browser (I'm on Mac) and make a bunch edits for HTTPS security. Requesting bots' owners to add specific sites takes too long—I want to be able to take matters into my own hands. I’d also like to be able to fix big groups of typos using this. Thanks! DemonDays64 | Tell me if I'm doing something wrong :P 04:47, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
DemonDays64, how are you checking to make sure that the new URLs are working as intended? Primefac (talk) 23:51, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
Primefac—it's pretty simple; when I'm editing for HTTPS, I open the HTTP page and see if it redirects to HTTPS. If it does, I edit it in. If it doesn't, I try changing the URL to be HTTPS. If there's a "this link is a security threat!" warning, I don't edit it in. If the images and stuff seem to not be broken, I edit it in. When automated, I would be careful to only do this for main domains—frequently, old subdomains don't have HTTPS. DemonDays64 | Tell me if I'm doing something wrong :P 15:31, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
  Done. Thanks for the clarification. Primefac (talk) 15:32, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

User:Awesome Aasim

I plan to use AWB to help with maintenance tagging and nominating articles for deletion. I may also use it a little to copyedit articles more efficiently. I will not use fully automated features, though. Awesome Aasim 07:13, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
Awesome Aasim, you have been blocked in the past for disruptive editing; will those issues arise if you are given the ability to edit dozens of pages at a time? I also am wondering if you know the purpose of AWB, as it is almost useless for AFD nominations and not really much better for maintenance tagging. Primefac (talk) 14:45, 10 November 2019 (UTC) (please do not ping on reply)
I have unknowingly misused automated tools (in particular twinkle) in the past, but I have developed a lot of maturity since I was blocked in 2017. I have learned that quality is more important than quantity and so disabled Twinkle for about a year or so since I was unblocked. I reenabled it after I feel like I have developed enough understanding of the purpose of these tools, in particular the meat bot policy: to improve the encyclopedia by either cleaning up problematic articles, undoing bad edits, or stopping/preventing disruption. I think about a few years ago I was mainly concerned about making lots of edits to the encyclopedia, which made me make a lot of bad edits and not that many helpful edits. While yes there are a few places that I did make improvements, I was too immature to understand. Now I do not make many meta-edits and focus mainly on new pages patrol, pending changes patrol and sometimes recent changes patrol (but RCP has been too daunting for me because of the number of edits made per few seconds). I hope to use the tool to clean up new articles and fix typos here as well :)
Currently I am using the tool on wikiHow to help them improve new articles and clean up pages/fix typos. One thing I learned is "If in doubt, skip". I hope to gain access to this tool so I can have another avenue of improving Wikipedia that is not daunting or problematic, such as the time when I used Twinkle to spam request unnecessary protection. Now that I understand that it is important that I use discretion with these tools, which is why I will not be using features like "autosave" or similar. Awesome Aasim 18:35, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
  Not done – AWB requires good judgment about which edits will be helpful. You are still editing under restrictions imposed in 2017 and you have a long block log. In terms of recent activity, I happened to notice the AfD you opened at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Rocky Ricardo Meade, which is described by one voter as 'a ridiculous nomination'. It would be best to hold off on applying for AWB until others are confident you can edit with consistent quality. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 03:38, 12 November 2019 (UTC)



I'm attempting to change the name of a page for the macOS application software ClarisImpact from "Claris Impact" to "ClarisImpact." I've already changed all the references within the page to reflect the correct app name, but am not able to change the title/move the page. Having worked on the team at Claris that created this software (Instructional Designer), I have first-hand knowledge of the application's name. I'm not sure that this page accepts citations, but you can confirm the correct name at the Macintosh Repository (macintoshrepository dot org). I wish I had time to find 3 more things on Wikipedia that need correcting (evidently, I've only made 7), but I don't. I expected this to take 30 minutes or so… but it's taken almost 2 hours to understand the whole process, e.g., the Requested Moves help page gives specific instructions on what to do (but I can't because I'm not "confirmed") including instructing NOT to edit the Talk page, but then a few more paragraphs down there are instructions on using the Talk page of a topic to make a "single page move." Confused? Yeah… me, too. If you don't want to confirm me, that's fine—no skin off of my back—but the incorrect page title will continue on a site that prides itself on being the ultimate reference source. Thanks for your consideration. Trlloyd60 04:02, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

I would like to gain permission to edit/moderate the "Victoria Justice" wikipedia page. I feel this page is somewhat neglected. I've requested edits for her biography multiple times as there are a few inconsistencies/errors in what has been said, however these changes have not been implemented.

I am a genuine fan of Victoria Justice, I run a fan page on Instagram titled "" and have done for almost 2 years now. I am aware of upcoming projects she is a part of that are currently in production, such as her starring in: "The Real Bros of Simi Valley" Season 3 & "50 States of Fright", however these have not been added to her filmography and I feel they should as it would give anyone that looks at her Wikipedia page an idea of what to expect next from her. I hope it is possible that I can become responsible for taking care of her Wikipedia page. RobbieN007 (talk) 18:52, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

I'm requesting this right permanently as I've spent lot of time in Afd since the last decline, the majority of the articles I nominated for Afd were deleted. I'm very familiar with the deletion policy and notability guidelines. I also have experience in CSD and A7 tagging and I've spent time tagging articles for maintenance and adding categories and short descriptions and hence I'm requesting this right so that I can reduce the growing backlog by reviewing new pages.

Page mover


I am pretty experienced and familiar with WP policies. I, many times, encounter pages which require title correction, so for this every time I have to go to WP:RM or to any user who has the tool. Like in June 2019, I requested User:Lugnuts for moves, see User_talk:Lugnuts/Archive_50#Pages_Iist which should have been done by me as I unnecessarily overloaded him. And, in recent time, I have requested Gul Ahmed (company), United Bank Limited (Pakistan) and other on WP:RM. It will be very helpful for my future work if I get the tool. Thanks. Störm (talk) 06:13, 2 November 2019 (UTC)
Störm, you have a ton of moves, but you almost never use an edit summary. Do you see that changing if you get this perm? Primefac (talk) 02:02, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
Primefac, I assure you that I will always use an edit summary for 'page moves' in future. And, if get the responsibility, I will be more cautious and responsible. I think it was a bad habit of me to not use summary. Störm (talk) 06:18, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

I often run into pages in article or user space that should be speedily moved (i.e. in threat of deletion in article space) to a Draft article, or people misusing their User page as a sandbox (In which case I move to their sandbox assuming it's not present and then blank the redirect as of now)
I am familiar with WP policies, and am very open to corrections and owning up to my mistakes.
I do not have the recommended edit count, but hitting that will happen in due time anyways (as I spend most of my time handling newly created userpages).
I do not have a need for all of the functionality that comes with the Page mover permission, and am curious if there is some sort of "Timed trial" that exists where I have the permission for a temporary period as a sort of trial run. MoonyTheDwarf (Braden N.) (talk) 00:11, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

Hello everyone, I am requesting this right for multiple reasons. Often I see bad userspace moves when checking renames (i.e this) or cases where requesting user moves userpages and then request rename to a different username and while fixing such moves suppress redirect will needed. Also being a SPI clerk, sometimes I have to fix bad cases (i.e this one) and suppress is helpful in such cases too.
Being a Global rollbacker I have this right over all wikis but since that's for a different reasons and I have been informed that using it here in such maintenance cases can be controversial, so I'm requesting for the right.
I also note that I have no intention of using this right except the cases listed above or some other non-controversial moves.
Thanks you for consideration. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 06:49, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

  Question: @King Rishab Dugar: I noticed that you were recently granted rollback rights, so I reviewed a few of your recent uses of the rollback tool. Do you think you could explain why you used rollback in the following instances: [8][9][10]. Thanks, Mz7 (talk) 02:15, 12 November 2019 (UTC)
  Comment: @Mz7:

For this case since the physician title was explicitly displayed as the article's title and his biography too uses the word doctor - he worked as a doctor for 12 years .So the word doctor (which is more of a degree) was better suited than physician (which is a subclass of doctor i.e a physician is a doctor in medical science).

Here as u can see the previous edit removed "[[]]" from some phrases. Rollbacking it to the previous one enabled people to know about the phrases if they didn't knew what it meant.For example someone didn't knew anything about 71st British Academy Film Awards and instead of going to google to search about it and then coming back to wiki it is better he just taps on the highlighted blue line 71st British Academy Film Awards, and gets his required data

Here I found that after it was being distributed by Sony TV the picture format became 720 p i.e. HDTV and not 480 p .So it was necessary to update it which was done by the previous user. Deletion of necessary information didn't look nice so i used the Rollback tool.

Thank You,

Peace and love

  Not done as per the very recently denied requests, of which the most recent is here Twinkle can be used to welcome and warn users -- Indeed as an Admin I find it sufficient for pretty much all the warnings I need to place, except those needing custom messages. Please wait several months, and then try for PCR first, avoiding all edit wars in the meantime DES (talk)DESiegel Contribs 17:51, 10 November 2019 (UTC)


More of a formality, I've been using Twinkle to do this for ages, and I've frequently done RC patrol when active (I've had the member userbox on my page since 2011). Mostly trying to formalize my permissions. hewhoamareismyself 18:46, 11 November 2019 (UTC)


Hi, I'd like to request rollback right to fight vandalism quickly. Just so you know, I was temporarily granted rollback earlier this year but later my request for permanent rollback was rejected as I didn't use it. I think there was two reason, 1. I use mobile most of the time and rollback wasn't possible in mobile site. Also mobile recent changes wasn't suited for patrolling. 2. I am a student. And during exams, I really needed to take a break. And because of that during that one month trial period I made only two rollbacks. I do not want to sound like a hat collecter. But just so you know, after I was granted rollbacker on Commons I joined SWMT and started using m:SWViewer to monitor small wikis and this wiki. SWViewer is fully mobile optimized and I wish I could have found it sooner.

Now I would like to use this generic rollback to quickly revert obvious vandalism by LTA. For the record, I am CVUA graduate here, and I am a patroller too on Commons and have rollback rights on meta-wiki. And I definitely use this right in those wikis as luckily rollback is now possible on mobile site in Advanced mode aka AMC (Advanced mobile contributions). Please note I am a human too and I do make mistakes. Please notify me in case I did something wrong. Regarding my recent inactivity, I wanted to have some cross-wiki experience and thus I went to Commons and now I have over 18000 edits there. Thanks. Masum Reza📞 02:10, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

Template editor


I would like to edit the highway shields templates for road infoboxes. There are several highway types in Arizona and other states that currently have to be put in to highway infoboxes manually, where it would be easier to do so using the template. If I can help it, I would rather not go through the process of needing my additions to the template approved through another user. I've had ample experience and practice making my own templates and editing templates that I am allowed to access. — MatthewAnderson707 (talk|sandbox) 20:15, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

One template not edited one time due to protection levels, to me, does not demonstrate a need. Recommending more experience/demonstration of skills but will revisit / allow other comments before making final judgement. Primefac (talk) 01:11, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
