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 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.



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, 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.

LightandDark2000 has created around 49 articles, and he had created four articles in this year (and will likely going to go up). While 13 of these articles are deleted, it shouldn't be too much of a concern as these are recreated by other editors. Mario Jump 83! 14:26, 5 April 2021 (UTC)
Regarding my stats, I consider my self to have authored or co-authored 30 full articles. Most of the deleted pages were redirects; those were deleted because either the main page (the redirect target) go deleted or because a later RfD on a group of redirects saw a consensus that axed some of them. I create a lot of redirects as an editor, but I've been starting more articles recently. And I plan to make more articles in the near future (I have at least 4 planned out). None of my articles were ever deleted for notability or Copyvio issues, and none of my recent article creations had any serious issues, either. LightandDark2000 🌀 ( talk) 15:56, 5 April 2021 (UTC)


Hi, I'm Hatchens. Resubmiting my request for Autopatroll rights (Earlier, my request was denied because of falling short in numbers). I'm working on NRHP entities and creating stub/start articles. Most of the time, I submit drafts for AfC review. And, I intend to maintain a balance between AfC reviewing and autopatrolled articles. - Hatchens ( talk) 05:05, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

    Oh wow! Hatchens is an amazing volunteer at the AfC. Should be having the autopatrolled flag. Definitely. ─ The Aafī on Mobile (talk) 10:07, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
    Hey Kashmorwiki and TheAafi, Thank you for backing me up on my request. It's an honor. However, as I always say, any decision should be taken without any biases and without being influenced. If my edit history holds any merit, then I would be qualified for autopatrol rights. If not, then you guys are with me to build new articles, so that I can qualify for it next time. :-). Thank you once again to both of you for such a nice gesture. - Hatchens ( talk) 11:16, 11 April 2021 (UTC)


Hi! I have created 95 articles, none of which have been deleted. I recently came back to Wikipedia and have created several articles over the past few weeks, so I believe having the autopatrolled right would reduce the workload on the New Page Patrol. Thank you!

Hi. I am almost familiar with the basics of Wikipedia and have created standard articles. If it's in Wiki's interest, I would like to request "auto patrol" access to facilitate the work of other patrol friends in the fight against vandalism. MadD ( talk) 11:49, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Not done I’ve looked at your latest article ( Ali Salehi (actor)) and done some editing to show you how much more you need to learn before patrolling by others won’t be necessary. In addition, parts of the article were incomprehensible to me. Thanks for your contributions but even when you know your way around all of WP's rules, English not being your first language will likely stop you from becoming autopatrolled.

It's tough to learn another language, especially when you start with it in a serious way once you are already an adult. I know from experience; English isn't my native language either. The way it worked for me is to immerse myself into the language in an English-speaking country. I'm not sure what the options would be for you. Schwede 66 21:46, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

I have created over 100 mainspace articles, primarily in the field of soccer/football. All have multiple reliable sources and are detailed and fully sourced. No issue with my articles being deleted for being un-notable. Also have created many re-directs, talk pages when I find an article without one, and files. Most of the files that were deleted were because I uploaded replacement files that were higher quality/size in a different file format, so I couldn't overwrite the original, so they were deleted for being unused in articles. Deleted articles were all (except one that was years ago) redirects that were deleted for page moves, or a typo when I created a redirect.

User:MS Sakib

I am a regular editor in Bengali Wikipedia. Besides, I often edit on the English Wikipedia. I want to translate articles from Bengali Wikipedia to English. But I can't use content translation tool because of the restriction. As a result, the number of my edits on English Wikipedia is relatively low. So, I need this right to overcome this problem. I hope I will not disappoint you if I get the Permission. Thanks. ≈ MS Sakib   «TalK» 18:09, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
Not done However @ MS Sakib: here is a workaround for your WP:CXT problem: on the new article title, put "" or "User:MS Sakib/" in front of the article title, this will let you save the translation. Once you are are done with it you can use the "Move" function to move the page to the final article namespace/title. — xaosflux Talk 18:16, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
@ Xaosflux: Thank you for sharing the method of saving articles. ≈ MS Sakib   «TalK» 18:20, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
@ Xaosflux: But without this permission, I don't get the automatic translation feature in Content Translator. Now only the original content is being copied. As a result, the use of content translator tool becomes meaningless. How can I overcome this problem? ≈ MS Sakib   «TalK» 18:30, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
@ MS Sakib: that feature has nothing to do with permissions, machine translation is disabled for everyone on the English Wikipedia; lack of this permission only stops newer editors from directly saving an article from the tool. — xaosflux Talk 19:38, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

I have already created/improved at least 200 Wikipedia image files. I wish to continue help out by making consistent filenames where needed. Thank-you 22:42, 15 March 2021 (UTC) — Prhart com 22:42, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
  • Can you give us any examples of file renaming you've requested or been involved in, or any other in-depth file work you've done beyond simply uploading images? ~Swarm~ {sting} 02:04, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
Hello, thank-you for the ping. I understand your question. I have long been serious, if infrequent, about uploading images, doing so only when it was important to do so for a specific article (including GAs and FAs). While working with files for articles, I have occasionally wished for ability to to rename files, either for consistency reasons or to relieve filename awkwardness. I just hoped now, after my long, unblemished history with Wikipedia, it would be all right to have this ability, ready for the next time I needed it. Thanks. — Prhart com 22:04, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

I was granted a one-month trial that will end in the coming days. I've marked over a hundred pages as reviewed, and to my knowledge no issues have been raised with any of my decisions. I've tried to act judiciously, limiting myself to simpler cases as I learn the ropes, but I feel confident that my reviews have been of value in putting a dent in the backlog.

I would like to try out reviewing new pages, especially that which has to do with the Africa. I do have some experience in article creation and modification. On my first try, I didn't know much on article creation and Citation, I uploaded my article and within minutes it was reviewed, corrected and approved with a note on my talk page on how to cite sources and the use of certain words which are considered promotional. I took notes and read more about it. On my second try, my article was drafted because I haven't put much time into it compared to the first. I took my time to reorganize and resubmit. Fortunately, it was reviewed and approved. So far, I have created 18 articles with none drafted apart from my second article. However, one my artcles was cited for copyright which was later resolved. This again made me read thoroughly on wikipedia's rules on copyright to better understand and improve my editing skills.
Lastly, I also helped to successfully move a language page whose title on Wikipedia was considered to be pejorative by the speakers (with good research citations) to a new name after an extensive discussion.

Page mover


I sometimes find AfC submissions that have been moved to the mainspace without actually having been reviewed, and I would like to be able to move them back without creating a redirect. Noah 💬 14:20, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
-noah-, just a quick question, are you moving these purely because they still had the AfC tags on them, or are you moving them back because they are not ready for the article space yet? If it is the latter, why did you not decline the page (e.g. Ymär Abdrahim)? (please do not ping on reply) Primefac ( talk) 14:29, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
I am moving them back because they aren't ready for the mainspace. That specific draft didn't appear to have the encyclopedic tone (eg. "That´s where young Ymär learned a lot.") and there was no reason for the lead section to have "who moved to Finland when he was younger." in the first sentence. Noah 💬 14:34, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Hello! I am an extended confirmed user with over 2,000 mainspace edits in the last 2.5 months. I understand the policy on vandalism, and other basic content and legal policies, as evidenced by my 11 good articles and 25-odd good article reviews.

Hello! I am an extended confirmed user . I understand the policy on vandalism, and other basic content and legal policies.

I mainly want the ability to add my own edits to pages with PendingChanges enabled without having to involve a second editor. Though I never patrol recent changes, I routinely revert non-constructive changes on the many articles I watch. (Note that I usually don't use the default undo button edit summary, as it's very intimidating to new users, so if you search regex my history looking for that precise use of the undo button, you won't find it, but the reverts are in there. ) It's quite frustrating to be able to edit a semi-protected page, have it step DOWN to pendingchanges, and then lose the ability to edit!

  •  Done Though I did want to note, in reviewing some of your recent contributions, it would be helpful if you used edit summaries more frequently.

I'd also like to use the Huggle or SWViewer software, which requires rollback permissions. Thank you incredibly much. Jamesluiz102 ( talk) 12:09, 6 April 2021 (UTC)


Hi, I am an old user of the wiki with a number of 3955 changes where the vast majority are anti-vandalism, having rollback rights would be particularly helpful. Thx-- HunMaster ( talk) 13:56, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

I made a request a month and a half ago and I had it declined due to my account only being one and a half months old at the time with only around 200 mainspace edits. Since then, I've gained a lot more experiences and now can assume good-faith more. I've been using both Twinkle and Redwarn for the past three months and wish to expand my twinkle and redwarn capabilities and also use Huggle and SWViewer.
Additionally, I'm a patroller and a template editor on Wikivoyage so I know how rollback works as I have the rollback feature on en.wikivoyage.
With Rollback rights, I think it'll make life easier for me as well as I can start to use Huggle as well. Plus, I'll only use rollback in obvious cases of vandalism (and maybe self reverts as well) and not suspected vandalism or good faith edits.
Thanks and have a good day, SHB2000 ( talk) 05:06, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Template editor

User:Est. 2021

I edit templates very often, and personally created/adopted some of them that have been recently protected for good reasons (eg. Template:User WP), but that's forcing me to fix or update them in more complex ways. I would like to be able to fix or update them without lowering the protection, when needed.

Passing comment while checking PERM out of curiosity: this isn't a new user but a returning one. Does that change the analysis? Vaticidal prophet 14:02, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
Yes, and it would have been nice if they had mentioned they're on their tenth account. I'll run the numbers in a bit. Primefac ( talk) 14:16, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
This should really be on the requester to put forward, also that account matrix is easy to overestimate at first view - as it lists "global edits" - over half of which are on a project that they have multiple indefinite blocks on. Additionally, for those that are requesting consideration of other accounts we normally require them to prove the relationship between them by logging in as their other accounts and attesting to the same ownership. — xaosflux Talk 14:43, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
There's a reasonable indication looking at the group in aggregate that they all belong to the same person, so I suppose I'm not as concerned about the timing as much. That being said, our usual metrics for "need" are a solid fail, so I am leaning towards declining (again?). Primefac ( talk) 15:29, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
@ Primefac: agree. If they find themselves routinely making tprot edit requests that get accepted without issue, they are welcome to re-request. — xaosflux Talk 16:08, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
