    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, and 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

    • 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 rules of use and registration requirements 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 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.
    • 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.

    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, new page reviewer, 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.

    Other editors

    Requests for permissions is primarily intended for editors requesting a permission for their own account. Other editors are welcome to comment if they have specific information that is relevant to that request that a patrolling administrator is unlikely to discover for themselves. Otherwise, since only administrators can effectively respond to these requests, general comments or 'clerking' by other users are rarely helpful. Non-administrators cannot "decline" to grant a request, because they're not in a position to accept it.

    A limited exception to this is Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Autopatrolled, where third party nominations are encouraged. Other editors should still avoid offering general remarks on requests and leave the final decision to an administrator.

    User:Prince of Erebor

    I have created 80 articles, primarily focused on Sinophone cinema and fantasy literature, with 2 currently undergoing GAN. All of my articles have been promptly reviewed, and none of them have been deleted or marked for maintenance. I am requesting autopatrolled rights to alleviate the workload of the patrollers, especially those who actively review film articles and have reviewed the majority of my articles, allowing them to allocate more time to address articles that truly require attention. As a side note, I am a veteran editor with patroller rights on Chinese Wikipedia, having authored over 200 articles, including a dozen featured and good articles. While I fully understand that there are differences in policies and MOS across different Wikipedias, I believe this demonstrates my credibility and knowledge in assessing article quality.— Prince of EreborThe Book of Mazarbul 13:18, 1 May 2024 (UTC) reply

    User:SheriffIsInTown

    I frequently create articles on notable subjects, having authored 530 articles, with the majority facing no issues.

    Well it seems like it helps make repetitive changes more effeciently, so I'm interested in using it to automatically make common fiexes, find and replace text, and otherwise streamline tedious tasks (particularly with pages I've made and/or are actively working on). I like the idea of custom scripts to fix less common errors that I am aware of quickly across multiple pages. (For example, in many of the Caribbean archaeology pages I monitor, there are outdated information, word choices, etc that could be more easily fixed all at once).

    New page reviewer

    User:Florificapis

    I got busy in real life for most of March and April, so my request was put on hold per [1]. Here is my original reason for requesting NPR permissions again.

    I have over 120 new articles under my belt, mostly relating to medieval history, monasteries, saints, and geographical features. I am familiar with the kinds of content that would fall under CSD criteria, since I have experience wikifying new pages and tagging obviously problematic new pages for speedy deletion. I know the guidelines on notability, proper sourcing, draftifying new articles, rating talk pages using scripts, AfC, AfD, and other essential patrolling tasks. Would be quite happy to reduce the backlog while being cautious and careful. Also currently a Pending Changes Reviewer. Florificapis ( talk) 00:09, 1 May 2024 (UTC) reply

    User:TarnishedPath

    I participated in the December backlog drive, being granted a trial. At the end of the trial I requested permanent NPP, which was denied with the denying admin expressing concern that I hadn't created any articles. I've since created an article about Neeraj Gupta (refer to User_talk:TarnishedPath/Archive_2#Your_submission_at_Articles_for_creation:_Neeraj_Gupta_(sculptor)_has_been_accepted) and been responsible for the bulk of the material in the newly created article Bruce Lehrmann‎. I had been working on Draft:Bruce Lehrmann‎ but someone else started work on Bruce Lehrmann‎ just as I submitted Draft:Bruce Lehrmann‎ to AfC so I ended up merging my work over to the mainspace article and issuing a CSD for deletion of the draft. I've continued to be semi-regularly involved with AfD. I'm applying because I got a notification a while ago that there was a backlog drive for May and I'm willing to help out a bit with that.

    Hello. I was initially given a month long trial as a new page reviewer after receiving an invitation on my user page, and I've been enjoying everything so far: reviewing pages, providing feedback, sending WikiLove to new and returning users who have made exceptional first attempts, tagging issues, and resolving issues myself (that could otherwise be tagged) when I have time in an attempt to reduce the backlog. I have already been renewed once, and my second trial expires in a little over two weeks (May 26th). I'm requesting either an indefinite or longer-term ability to review new pages before my time lapses. Haven't had any behavioral issues, and I try to treat all users with respect.

    Hi! I was granted a one month trial with the NPP right and feel as though I did a decent job. I mainly focused on marking obviously acceptable articles.

    I was suggested to apply here, and I've decided to volunteer. To make this more consistent:
    I'm an AFC reviewer and I mostly create articles and review articles relating to biographies, as well as biological or scientific topics. I have DYK, GA, and vast experience with AFD and other noticeboard discussions. I'd like to volunteer in new pages patrolling as well to help reduce the queue. (I most likely won't be reviewing pages daily, but whenever I do, I'd do a thorough review, and I'm very collaborative. I provide feedback and at times amend issues myself of the pages I review).
    Note that I've had a name change, so certain stats tool pages might not work properly. And 3 out of 4 of my deleted pages were self delete.

    I was a new page reviewer until earlier this month.

    Maria Medina Coeli, mistake in title

    Good morning, as I explained on the Maria Medina Coeli talk page, the name is wrong. This error probably comes from the Harvard University source, which although prestigious and reliable, is wrong in this case, which is understandable if you are not fluent in the original language of the sources.

    Rollback

    User:HirowoWiki

    I've been active at recent changes for more than 3 months to help revert vandalism and report AIV, which is successful. Rollback rights need access to a counter-vandalism tool. HirowoWiki ( talk | contribs) 01:21, 23 May 2024 (UTC) reply

    A few concerns:
    1. A couple of days ago, you were warned about misleading edits summaries wrt this edit. Please explain, in your own words, why this edit was inappropriate.
    2. I see that you are failing to consistently warn editors when you revert their edits (e.g. 1, 2, 3). Why? Are you aware that we have tools such as Twinkle or Ultraviolet that make this extremely easy?

    Moving forward, what will you do ensure that you are always leaving a notification? Right after your last reply, I noticed that you failed to notify an editor after making a this revert. What exactly do you mean by "made a misleading edit summary and not a typo"? Like I said, both the contents of the edit and edit summary are inappropriate. Can you explain why? - Fastily 06:16, 25 May 2024 (UTC) reply
    I've undid the last edit; they should leave a warning message. I changed the template with uppercase letters like {{pp|small=yes}} → {{Pp|small=yes}} and {{featured article}} → {{Featured article}}. The template shouldn't be changed in this article. Thank you for the explanation. HirowoWiki ( talk | contribs) 07:47, 25 May 2024 (UTC) reply

    I will ensure to leave a warning message after reverting your edit. The misleading edit summary referred to providing incorrect information in the summary, which did not accurately reflect the changes made in the edit. This can be misleading to other editors who check the edit history. HirowoWiki ( talk | contribs) 08:04, 26 May 2024 (UTC) reply
    Please ensure that you are always leaving warnings. I can't stress enough the importance of not biting the newcomers; if you find yourself reverting good faith edits, then it's especially important to notify the editor; I recommend using tools such as Twinkle or Ultraviolet which makes this extremely easy. If you don't want to leave a template warning, that's completely fine, but you do need to leave a talk page message explaining why you reverted the edit. Moving forward, could you please make a promise to leave warnings/notifications for every revert? And it sounds like you're not familiar with WP:COSMETIC changes, which capitalizing template translcusions falls under. The community frowns upon such edits, so please also acknowledge below that you won't be making such edits in the future. - Fastily 09:36, 27 May 2024 (UTC) reply
    Leave warnings for edits, use tools like Twinkle or Ultraviolet for easy notifications. Avoid biting newcomers and explain reverts with talk page messages. Refrain from WP:COSMETIC changes like capitalizing template transclusions. HirowoWiki ( talk | contribs) 11:21, 27 May 2024 (UTC) reply

    I have been active on RCP over the past month. I would like rollback for the particular case where a vandal persistently vandalizes the same page. It takes time to load via Twinkle and is frustrating when my attempt to revert fails because the vandal or someone else has made more edits. I believe rollback will save me time and make my efforts against vandalism more effective. Air on White ( talk) 03:00, 26 May 2024 (UTC) reply

    I do not warn users in what I assume to be legitimate content disputes, as warning would be patronizing and unconducive to discussion. The user who added the name of one of Pat Morita's grandchildren appeared to be acting in good faith; I reverted not because he was vandalizing or disruptive, but because the person did not have his own Wikipedia article. The argument here is not about vandalism, NPOV or BLP, but simply a content dispute about what is proper to include in the infobox. Meanwhile, in the case of Matthew Heineman, that was the third edit by a user who added BLP violations who was hopping to a different IP for every edit. It is useless to warn such a user, who I had already warned twice on two different IPs, just as it is useless to further warn a user who has received a level 4 warning and is still vandalizing. My failure to warn the vandal on The Chris Moyles Show was a mistake on my part, possibly because I forgot after I restored the page to remove vandalism by multiple IPs. I hope this helps you understand my editing process. Air on White ( talk) 06:28, 26 May 2024 (UTC) reply

    User:RodRabelo7

    Hello,

    Roughly a month ago, I requested to be granted rollback rights. The administrator who responded, Fastily, asked me to patrol recent changes for a month before requesting the permission again. Having done so, I believe I am now ready to become a rollbacker. As mentioned in my previous request, I've been a rollbacker on Commons for quite some time now – over a year –, understanding how the tool works and the risks associated with it, and committing myself not to misuse it, under the risk of losing it temporarily or permanently, and even being blocked.

    Having patrolled recent changes for this month, with over 700 reversions in the main domain, I'm now more confident than ever in distinguishing between obvious vandalism, non-constructive changes, and good-faith edits, for example. I always make sure to notify editors after reverting their edits, so that these newcomers are not " bitten" (e.g. 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b, 3a, 3b, 4a, 4b, 5a, 5b). Sometimes I even notify and guide them without reverting their edits; that's why I currently have a bit more warnings on user pages than reversions in the main domain.

    I also have a constant presence in Administrator intervention against vandalism, with a considerably high success rate (that is, the ratio between blocked accounts and reports). Of the more than 20 accounts I reported there (ignoring the IPs), only one was not blocked, for reasons I now understand well, so these will not be repeated. I have even opened a checkuser request as a result of my anti-vandalism activities (although this request was deleted in favor of one created later, I don't know precisely why).

    Therefore, I would like to finally become a rollbacker. As mentioned before, I would like to have access to semi-automatic tools, namely Huggle, which would greatly facilitate my anti-vandalism work, making it more efficient. I enjoy patrolling recent changes, and rollback rights would certainly make my life easier.

    I noticed that you're indef blocked at your home wiki (ptwiki). Could you comment on that please? - Fastily 09:36, 27 May 2024 (UTC) reply
    Fastily,
    Yes, unfortunately it is true that I am currently blocked on my home wiki. I was blocked there due to an administrative decision. At the time, there was suspicion that I was a sockpuppet of some long-term abuser. I was associated, among others, with someone named Quintinense. There was a certain wikihounding surrounding my edits, which I perceived as harassment and tried to respond accordingly. This eventually led to a discussion where the majority of participating administrators supported the block. Needless to say, I have nothing to do with this account I was associated with, which has even harassed me here on this project (Quintinense → PórokhovErtrinken: harassment here, here, and probably here, to mention just a few).
    Trying to be succinct so that you, unfamiliar with the specific Wikipedia in question, can understand the issue, what I can say is that people change, and today I have a completely different view than I did almost two years ago regarding the dynamics of a collaborative editing environment – a view that is constantly evolving, by the way. I always strive to improve as a person and as a user, and I believe my activities not only here and on Commons, but also on Wiktionary and Wikisource (in Portuguese and French), demonstrate my good faith towards Wikimedia projects.
    I am open to further questions if you believe they are necessary to better clarify the issue.
    Respectfully, RodRabelo7 ( talk) 10:26, 27 May 2024 (UTC) reply
    Thanks for the explanation. If what you say is true, then why haven't you sought to be unblocked at ptwiki? - Fastily 02:10, 28 May 2024 (UTC) reply
    Fastily,
    In fact, I did seek to be unblocked on ptwiki six months ago. However, 7 administrator votes were against the unblock, and 6 were in favor. The decision is made based on a simple majority, so I was not unblocked at that time. As an example, among the administrators who supported my unblocking were Albertoleoncio (currently a steward and a checkuser; see his comment here), DarwIn (also a Commons administrator; see his comment here), and Skyshifter ( active editor here; see their comment here).
    Recently, I came across the essay " Unblocks are cheap" here on enwiki. I would say it summarizes my opinion regarding unblocking, which apparently is not shared by some administrators on ptwiki. If I were unblocked there today, I certainly would not persist in the behavior that once led to my block. However, it is difficult, being blocked on ptwiki, to convince the administrators there that I am acting in good faith. It is a catch-22.
    For this reason, I try to demonstrate my good faith in other projects. In this process, I confess, I have grown more fond of enwiki than ptwiki, but I still aspire to be unblocked there because my editorial interests (namely Tupi–Guarani languages, especially Old Tupi; e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) are more relevant to the Portuguese-speaking world than to the English-speaking one. Hence, if developed there, they would better reach their target audience.
    I hope I have answered your question.

    Hi there,

    I am requesting rollback rights so I can revert vandalism faster. I've been using Twinkle and reverting vandalism for more than a month now and I finally feel like it's the time. Around last month I've requested Rollback rights but it got declined because I had limited experience in reverting vandalism. I now have over 200 mainspace edits, reverting for more than a month now, and only this that might count as edit warring. Having rollback rights would give me access to tools such as AntiVandal which will help me revert vandalism easier. Myrealnamm ( 💬talk · ✏️contribs) 21:27, 27 May 2024 (UTC) reply

    Oh. I'll explain that:
    If I recall, what happened was I didn't see their edit summary and I only saw the edits that were blanking content. So, to answer your question, I shouldn't have reverted those edits because there were reasonable explanations for blanking. That was my mistake. Are there any other problems?

    Template editor

    User:Sundostund

    Hello. I am re-applying for template editor rights, which I was granted on a temporary basis by Primefac ( permalink) on 24 February; it is about to expire at 00:00, on 24 May. As I promised in my original request back in February, and as can be seen, I didn't misuse this right in any way. I used it in a very responsible manner, on a periodical basis, and I'm no longer obliged to bother others with template-protected edit requests, and basically have them to do my work for me when it comes to HRTs. Naturally, I would prefer if this right is extended on a permanent basis, but that is up to admins to decide. — Sundostund mppria ( talk / contribs) 13:23, 22 May 2024 (UTC) reply

      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, and 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

      • 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 rules of use and registration requirements 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 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.
      • 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.

      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, new page reviewer, 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.

      Other editors

      Requests for permissions is primarily intended for editors requesting a permission for their own account. Other editors are welcome to comment if they have specific information that is relevant to that request that a patrolling administrator is unlikely to discover for themselves. Otherwise, since only administrators can effectively respond to these requests, general comments or 'clerking' by other users are rarely helpful. Non-administrators cannot "decline" to grant a request, because they're not in a position to accept it.

      A limited exception to this is Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Autopatrolled, where third party nominations are encouraged. Other editors should still avoid offering general remarks on requests and leave the final decision to an administrator.

      Autopatrolled

      User:Prince of Erebor

      I have created 80 articles, primarily focused on Sinophone cinema and fantasy literature, with 2 currently undergoing GAN. All of my articles have been promptly reviewed, and none of them have been deleted or marked for maintenance. I am requesting autopatrolled rights to alleviate the workload of the patrollers, especially those who actively review film articles and have reviewed the majority of my articles, allowing them to allocate more time to address articles that truly require attention. As a side note, I am a veteran editor with patroller rights on Chinese Wikipedia, having authored over 200 articles, including a dozen featured and good articles. While I fully understand that there are differences in policies and MOS across different Wikipedias, I believe this demonstrates my credibility and knowledge in assessing article quality.— Prince of EreborThe Book of Mazarbul 13:18, 1 May 2024 (UTC) reply

      I frequently create articles on notable subjects, having authored 530 articles, with the majority facing no issues.

      Well it seems like it helps make repetitive changes more effeciently, so I'm interested in using it to automatically make common fiexes, find and replace text, and otherwise streamline tedious tasks (particularly with pages I've made and/or are actively working on). I like the idea of custom scripts to fix less common errors that I am aware of quickly across multiple pages.

      New page reviewer

      User:Florificapis

      I got busy in real life for most of March and April, so my request was put on hold per [1]. Here is my original reason for requesting NPR permissions again.

      I have over 120 new articles under my belt, mostly relating to medieval history, monasteries, saints, and geographical features. I am familiar with the kinds of content that would fall under CSD criteria, since I have experience wikifying new pages and tagging obviously problematic new pages for speedy deletion. I know the guidelines on notability, proper sourcing, draftifying new articles, rating talk pages using scripts, AfC, AfD, and other essential patrolling tasks. Would be quite happy to reduce the backlog while being cautious and careful. Also currently a Pending Changes Reviewer. Florificapis ( talk) 00:09, 1 May 2024 (UTC) reply

      I participated in the December backlog drive, being granted a trial. At the end of the trial I requested permanent NPP, which was denied with the denying admin expressing concern that I hadn't created any articles. I've since created an article about Neeraj Gupta (refer to User_talk:TarnishedPath/Archive_2#Your_submission_at_Articles_for_creation:_Neeraj_Gupta_(sculptor)_has_been_accepted) and been responsible for the bulk of the material in the newly created article Bruce Lehrmann‎. I had been working on Draft:Bruce Lehrmann‎ but someone else started work on Bruce Lehrmann‎ just as I submitted Draft:Bruce Lehrmann‎ to AfC so I ended up merging my work over to the mainspace article and issuing a CSD for deletion of the draft. I've continued to be semi-regularly involved with AfD. I'm applying because I got a notification a while ago that there was a backlog drive for May and I'm willing to help out a bit with that.

I have already been renewed once, and my second trial expires in a little over two weeks (May 26th). I'm requesting either an indefinite or longer-term ability to review new pages before my time lapses. Haven't had any behavioral issues, and I try to treat all users with respect.

      I was suggested to apply here, and I've decided to volunteer. To make this more consistent:
      I'm an AFC reviewer and I mostly create articles and review articles relating to biographies, as well as biological or scientific topics. I have DYK, GA, and vast experience with AFD and other noticeboard discussions. I'd like to volunteer in new pages patrolling as well to help reduce the queue. (I most likely won't be reviewing pages daily, but whenever I do, I'd do a thorough review, and I'm very collaborative. I provide feedback and at times amend issues myself of the pages I review).
      Note that I've had a name change, so certain stats tool pages might not work properly. And 3 out of 4 of my deleted pages were self delete.

      2. I see that you are failing to consistently warn editors when you revert their edits (e.g. 1, 2, 3). Why? Are you aware that we have tools such as Twinkle or Ultraviolet that make this extremely easy?

      I forgot to leave a warning message. Also, I made a misleading edit summary and not a typo. HirowoWiki ( talk | contribs) 21:47, 23 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      Moving forward, what will you do ensure that you are always leaving a notification? Right after your last reply, I noticed that you failed to notify an editor after making a this revert. What exactly do you mean by "made a misleading edit summary and not a typo"? Like I said, both the contents of the edit and edit summary are inappropriate. Can you explain why? - Fastily 06:16, 25 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      I've undid the last edit; they should leave a warning message. I changed the template with uppercase letters like {{pp|small=yes}} → {{Pp|small=yes}} and {{featured article}} → {{Featured article}}. The template shouldn't be changed in this article. Thank you for the explanation. HirowoWiki ( talk | contribs) 07:47, 25 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      Why are you being so evasive with your answers? I'm not asking you trick questions or attempting to embarrass you. Please re-read my reply above and answer the questions please. - Fastily 05:46, 26 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      I will ensure to leave a warning message after reverting your edit. The misleading edit summary referred to providing incorrect information in the summary, which did not accurately reflect the changes made in the edit. This can be misleading to other editors who check the edit history. HirowoWiki ( talk | contribs) 08:04, 26 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      Please ensure that you are always leaving warnings. I can't stress enough the importance of not biting the newcomers; if you find yourself reverting good faith edits, then it's especially important to notify the editor; I recommend using tools such as Twinkle or Ultraviolet which makes this extremely easy. If you don't want to leave a template warning, that's completely fine, but you do need to leave a talk page message explaining why you reverted the edit. Moving forward, could you please make a promise to leave warnings/notifications for every revert? And it sounds like you're not familiar with WP:COSMETIC changes, which capitalizing template translcusions falls under. The community frowns upon such edits, so please also acknowledge below that you won't be making such edits in the future. - Fastily 09:36, 27 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      Leave warnings for edits, use tools like Twinkle or Ultraviolet for easy notifications. Avoid biting newcomers and explain reverts with talk page messages. Refrain from WP:COSMETIC changes like capitalizing template transclusions. HirowoWiki ( talk | contribs) 11:21, 27 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      Right, those are things that I'd like you to do moving forward. Can you please state clearly that you, HirowoWiki, will be doing these things? - Fastily 02:10, 28 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      Yes, I will be doing these. HirowoWiki ( talk | contribs) 02:27, 28 May 2024 (UTC) reply

      I've been patrolling recent changes for almost a year now, and the rollback right would mean I could start using Huggle for that, as I've been meaning to do for a while now. Sneezless ( talk) ( contribs) 21:44, 24 May 2024 (UTC) reply

       Not done I noticed you make a handful of edits, and then drop off for months at a time. While I appreciate your enthusiasm, I'd like to see you spend at least a month consistently patrolling RecentChanges ( Twinkle & Ultraviolet can help with that) before reapplying. Also, please ensure that you are always warning editors when you revert their edits. Thanks, Fastily 06:16, 25 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      Thanks for the tips. I'm already using Redwarn for warnings, but did you notice any particular times when I didn't properly warn users? I've been using the ProblemWelcome and WelcomeIP templates instead fairly often, since most editors I'd otherwise use a warning template on are new editors.

      I have been active on RCP over the past month. I would like rollback for the particular case where a vandal persistently vandalizes the same page. It takes time to load via Twinkle and is frustrating when my attempt to revert fails because the vandal or someone else has made more edits. I believe rollback will save me time and make my efforts against vandalism more effective. Air on White ( talk) 03:00, 26 May 2024 (UTC) reply

      I do not warn users in what I assume to be legitimate content disputes, as warning would be patronizing and unconducive to discussion. The user who added the name of one of Pat Morita's grandchildren appeared to be acting in good faith; I reverted not because he was vandalizing or disruptive, but because the person did not have his own Wikipedia article. The argument here is not about vandalism, NPOV or BLP, but simply a content dispute about what is proper to include in the infobox. Meanwhile, in the case of Matthew Heineman, that was the third edit by a user who added BLP violations who was hopping to a different IP for every edit. It is useless to warn such a user, who I had already warned twice on two different IPs, just as it is useless to further warn a user who has received a level 4 warning and is still vandalizing. My failure to warn the vandal on The Chris Moyles Show was a mistake on my part, possibly because I forgot after I restored the page to remove vandalism by multiple IPs. I hope this helps you understand my editing process. Air on White ( talk) 06:28, 26 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      If you take a look at my contributions, it will be beyond obvious that I am aware of Twinkle and am regularly using it to warn users. Air on White ( talk) 06:32, 26 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      It doesn't matter whether it's "a dispute" or a good faith edit: you need to leave a notification.

      User:RodRabelo7

      Hello,

      Roughly a month ago, I requested to be granted rollback rights. The administrator who responded, Fastily, asked me to patrol recent changes for a month before requesting the permission again. Having done so, I believe I am now ready to become a rollbacker. As mentioned in my previous request, I've been a rollbacker on Commons for quite some time now – over a year –, understanding how the tool works and the risks associated with it, and committing myself not to misuse it, under the risk of losing it temporarily or permanently, and even being blocked.

      Having patrolled recent changes for this month, with over 700 reversions in the main domain, I'm now more confident than ever in distinguishing between obvious vandalism, non-constructive changes, and good-faith edits, for example. I always make sure to notify editors after reverting their edits, so that these newcomers are not " bitten" (e.g. 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b, 3a, 3b, 4a, 4b, 5a, 5b). Sometimes I even notify and guide them without reverting their edits; that's why I currently have a bit more warnings on user pages than reversions in the main domain.

      I also have a constant presence in Administrator intervention against vandalism, with a considerably high success rate (that is, the ratio between blocked accounts and reports). Of the more than 20 accounts I reported there (ignoring the IPs), only one was not blocked, for reasons I now understand well, so these will not be repeated. I have even opened a checkuser request as a result of my anti-vandalism activities (although this request was deleted in favor of one created later, I don't know precisely why).

      Therefore, I would like to finally become a rollbacker. As mentioned before, I would like to have access to semi-automatic tools, namely Huggle, which would greatly facilitate my anti-vandalism work, making it more efficient. I enjoy patrolling recent changes, and rollback rights would certainly make my life easier.

      I noticed that you're indef blocked at your home wiki (ptwiki). Could you comment on that please? - Fastily 09:36, 27 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      Fastily,
      Yes, unfortunately it is true that I am currently blocked on my home wiki. I was blocked there due to an administrative decision. At the time, there was suspicion that I was a sockpuppet of some long-term abuser. I was associated, among others, with someone named Quintinense. There was a certain wikihounding surrounding my edits, which I perceived as harassment and tried to respond accordingly. This eventually led to a discussion where the majority of participating administrators supported the block. Needless to say, I have nothing to do with this account I was associated with, which has even harassed me here on this project (Quintinense → PórokhovErtrinken: harassment here, here, and probably here, to mention just a few).
      Trying to be succinct so that you, unfamiliar with the specific Wikipedia in question, can understand the issue, what I can say is that people change, and today I have a completely different view than I did almost two years ago regarding the dynamics of a collaborative editing environment – a view that is constantly evolving, by the way. I always strive to improve as a person and as a user, and I believe my activities not only here and on Commons, but also on Wiktionary and Wikisource (in Portuguese and French), demonstrate my good faith towards Wikimedia projects.
      I am open to further questions if you believe they are necessary to better clarify the issue.
      Respectfully, RodRabelo7 ( talk) 10:26, 27 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      Thanks for the explanation. If what you say is true, then why haven't you sought to be unblocked at ptwiki? - Fastily 02:10, 28 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      Fastily,
      In fact, I did seek to be unblocked on ptwiki six months ago. However, 7 administrator votes were against the unblock, and 6 were in favor. The decision is made based on a simple majority, so I was not unblocked at that time. As an example, among the administrators who supported my unblocking were Albertoleoncio (currently a steward and a checkuser; see his comment here), DarwIn (also a Commons administrator; see his comment here), and Skyshifter ( active editor here; see their comment here).
      Recently, I came across the essay " Unblocks are cheap" here on enwiki. I would say it summarizes my opinion regarding unblocking, which apparently is not shared by some administrators on ptwiki. If I were unblocked there today, I certainly would not persist in the behavior that once led to my block. However, it is difficult, being blocked on ptwiki, to convince the administrators there that I am acting in good faith. It is a catch-22.
      For this reason, I try to demonstrate my good faith in other projects. In this process, I confess, I have grown more fond of enwiki than ptwiki, but I still aspire to be unblocked there because my editorial interests (namely Tupi–Guarani languages, especially Old Tupi; e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) are more relevant to the Portuguese-speaking world than to the English-speaking one. Hence, if developed there, they would better reach their target audience.
      I hope I have answered your question.

      Hi there,

      I am requesting rollback rights so I can revert vandalism faster. I've been using Twinkle and reverting vandalism for more than a month now and I finally feel like it's the time. Around last month I've requested Rollback rights but it got declined because I had limited experience in reverting vandalism. I now have over 200 mainspace edits, reverting for more than a month now, and only this that might count as edit warring. Having rollback rights would give me access to tools such as AntiVandal which will help me revert vandalism easier. Myrealnamm ( 💬talk · ✏️contribs) 21:27, 27 May 2024 (UTC) reply

      Oh, and yes, constantly warning users about their edits (unless they've vandalized past their fourth or 4im warning, and then I'll go to AIV). Myrealnamm ( 💬talk · ✏️contribs) 21:28, 27 May 2024 (UTC) reply

      I'm concerned by this complaint on your talk page. Do you still think the edit referenced here should have been reverted? Please explain your reasoning. - Fastily 02:10, 28 May 2024 (UTC) reply
      Oh. I'll explain that:
      If I recall, what happened was I didn't see their edit summary and I only saw the edits that were blanking content. So, to answer your question, I shouldn't have reverted those edits because there were reasonable explanations for blanking. That was my mistake. Are there any other problems?
