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

  • 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.



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.

Current requests

Account creator



User:Curbon7 has created 81 articles, of which 7 have been deleted. Of these, two were deleted to make way for a page move (G6) and three were G7'd. The other two deserve a bit more of an explanation. Alexander Mamasidikov was deleted per WP:G5, which I would guess is because he lost control of his account around that time. Currently, he has the 2FA tester group, which I assume he makes use of. Finally, there is William J. Meade. He created the page, but later realized that the subject did not meet GNG. He was able to recognize that G7 was not applicable, so he PROD'd his own creation. Someone dePROD'd the page, so he took himself to AfD. In sum, I do not believe he needs new page patrollers to look after his work, because he looks after himself. HouseBlastertalk 21:47, 24 July 2022 (UTC)

For clarification, the weird G5 thing was because I moved someone's sandbox draft to draftspace (thus me creating a redirect from their sandbox), they removed the redirect and created a new sandbox draft, that got moved to mainspace, and it all got deleted anyways because they were a blocked user. That's why I show up as having that G5; no edits were made during the period my account was compromised, as it was instantly locked. Additionally, the other ones besides Meade were redirects that I G7'd, or G6s. Regardless, thanks for the nom. Curbon7 (talk) 22:24, 24 July 2022 (UTC)
It's been 3 weeks lol, can I get a close one way or the other?. Since this nom, I've created an additional 17 solid articles. It's a bit silly if I'm getting held up over an AfD that confused even an admin and a Jan 2021 compromise that had no effect. As I didn't start this nom, I don't mind which result I get, just a result would be nice. Curbon7 (talk) 10:55, 14 August 2022 (UTC)

Hi Folks!! I think this editor should be autopatrolled. Please take a look at this article: Lea Niako and this: Domna Visvizi. The editor has only been here two months odd with only 600odd edits and 15 articles already. I'm not sure exactly what the criteria is, so I guess this is a kind of speculative application, but some workload. scope_creepTalk 16:09, 11 August 2022 (UTC)

 Automated comment This user has created roughly 15 articles. MusikBot talk 16:20, 11 August 2022 (UTC)
Um, why do you care so much?? Unless... Unless we should deny. Which we should. You don't know what the criteria are? Any idiot can read the criteria. No. A loose necktie (talk) 07:37, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
@A loose necktie: cut it out, please.. there's no need for the personal attack against Scope creepTheresNoTime (talk • she/her) 22:04, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
Thanks @TheresNoTime: This is an truly excellent editor who has written six large, well formatted articles in one day. The 15 that have been written are steller. Probably the 2nd best article creator on Wikipedia and well worthy of being autopatrolled. Its been four days, it won't go through anyway. scope_creepTalk 22:18, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
I've looked over his work, and I have to say I am quite impressed with his creations. I suspect someone who may have edited in the past coming back to Wikipedia. He seems to have a clue and writes quite adequately for the pedia. 15 is somewhat low, but this is probably only the second time in 15 years that I would say it would be prudent to override the 25 minimum in this case. But, that's up to someone with a higher pay grade than I. Regards, GenQuest "scribble" 22:58, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
I shall take a look. Schwede66 01:32, 16 August 2022 (UTC)
 Done Excellent work. When writing about European (especially British) topics, it would be better to use British English than American English. But that's about it. I also doubt that we are looking at just 15 articles; there must have been previous activity; even seasoned editors struggle to write such clean articles. Schwede66 02:26, 16 August 2022 (UTC)


Created over 100 articles. None have been deleted, and new articles do not appear to require attention from New Pages Patrol. * Pppery * it has begun... 00:10, 14 August 2022 (UTC)

NONE have been deleted?? That worries me much more than "5 have been deleted" or "30 have been deleted". Deny. Please. A loose necktie (talk) 07:35, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
@A loose necktie: Could you please elaborate on why you believe that writing content that doesn't get deleted would be an issue? --Blablubbs (talk) 09:18, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
If the implication is that the articles are receiving too little scrutiny, then I can say I have reviewed several of their articles and found them to be high-quality. They also tend to rely heavily on offline sources, which makes patrolling difficult. * Pppery * it has begun... 21:56, 15 August 2022 (UTC)

User:A loose necktie

OK, I have written exactly 100 articles so far, 17 having since been deleted, which I think is a pretty good track record. I believe I have shown I have a good sense of Wikipedia's policies regarding notability, copyright, and verifiability, and while I realize this "right" doesn't really "change" anything for me, I don't see much point in burdening the new page patrollers with my work (though I do enjoy the idea of someone having to read over each of the articles I write! But that is just an ego need and I am letting that go). A loose necktie (talk) 21:56, 14 August 2022 (UTC)

 Not done Thank you for your interest, but I am declining your request because 1) you did not give a reason and 2) you do not meet the criteria for autopatrolled (you have created one article that was later deleted at AfD).

I have made 18 edits in Wikipedia (in Czech language) in last two weeks and I have not been confirmed automatically. Fanfrlik (talk) 07:49, 14 August 2022 (UTC)

 Not done Hi, and thank you for creating an account to edit Wikipedia. Although I fully understand your desire to dive right in, many of our articles are semi-protected because they are controversial, prone to vandalism, or other reasons. As a new editor with few edits, it might be wise to discuss your edits on the article talkpage in order to gain consensus for your edits, and then use {{Edit semi-protected}} to request the edit be performed. I only recommend this until you are used to the challenges of reliable sources, the biographies of living persons policy, and other similar policies. The good news is that fewer than 5 percent of Wikipedia articles are protected; this means that more than 95 percent of the articles can use your help right now!
Unfortunately, only edits made on the English Wikipedia count towards automatic confirmation on here on the English Wikipedia. stwalkerster (talk) 10:07, 14 August 2022 (UTC)

Event coordinator


Reason for requesting event coordinator rights:

Part of our computing topic at Culloden Primary School is to create our own Wiki account and create our own page (one that isn't yet found on the platform). Our year 4 group consistes of 82 children but so far only 6 accounts have been created due to the restrictions in place. May you please allow us to create one account for each child from our same IP address so that we are fully capable of completing our exciting topic before the end of the school year?

New page reviewer


I think I would make a good new page reviewer. I have a lot of experience in content creation, AfD, a light CSD log, and I've also dedicated a lot of time to content improvement (see Hot Pink and "WAP"). I could carry this over to NPR and I'd love to help make a dent in the backlog. Thanks :) —VersaceSpace 🌃 15:53, 28 July 2022 (UTC)

I'm not sure about your request. I've been mulling it over for a good while now. My concern comes in the CSD A7 form about whether you know what should be immediately deleted or not. I can't put my finger on why specifically at the moment, but I'm looking for any contributions that show your A7 knowledgeable, as it's a primary category of CSDs for NPRers. Anything like that that you can show me? -- Amanda (she/her) 18:05, 8 August 2022 (UTC)
@AmandaNP: I am aware of A7, and keep it in mind while editing. I would use it on any article that does not say why the subject of the article is notable. Exceptions are described at WP:CSD#A7; primarily as a music editor I've known that this can't be used on articles about albums or other creative works. I understand that this exception extends to other products. As an example, this criteria would apply to a store but not to a product in the store. If there's any other way I could display that I understand A7 or any other CSD to you, please let me know. —VersaceSpace 🌃 18:54, 8 August 2022 (UTC)
(Non-administrator comment)@AmandaNP So I've been watching this for awhile and if you're still on the fence about granting @VersaceSpace NPR privileges I might have a solution. If you're leaning towards not granting NPR privileges maybe send @VersaceSpace to WP:NPRSCHOOL (if they're interested and have the time). I graduated from NPP School and I learned a LOT and I can't say enough good things about the experience. If this is improper, rude, or if I'm overstepping please let me know and it won't happen again. Dr vulpes (💬📝) 09:10, 11 August 2022 (UTC)

Might I suggest waiting a bit? You just got AFC and your first accept (or one of the first) was pretty abysmal. PRAXIDICAE🌈 12:43, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm in complete agreement with you and Seraphimblade that it was a spammy kind of article. It would probably have been deleted at AfD, which is where I was planning to send it. I don't think it would have survived AfD but any soloist in a national orchestra has probably received at least some press in their own country. Because the country is Iran, and music/arts and press are often subject to censorship there, it may not have been enough to pass at AfD (independent, reliable, etc.) The sources were not in English and maybe the community would decide they couldn't meet the standardss we need. As for waiting on NPP, I don't mind. I should explain, however, that I mainly applied for this AFC and NPP to help review unambiguously non-spam articles that are stuck in the backlogs, and some of the borderline ones like what is usually discussed at AfD. If that's not what is needed here, I don't know if I should reapply? I don't see my role on this project as a deletion patrol, nor do I forsee myself becoming interested in deleting possibly notable subjects without discussion. It's good work you all do, but it's just not my thing. My decision here was more that I didn't want to make this call unilaterally. Maybe I don't understand what the role of NPP is for the project. I will put some consideration into all the comments that I receive, if I am to reapply. Spudlace (talk) 13:52, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
You shouldn't AFC accept something that will be deleted at AFD. One of the reasons for AFC is to protect articles from deletion discussions, since deletion 1) stops an article from being worked on, and 2) is WP:BITEy to new users. The threshold for accepting an AFC draft is that it will probably survive a deletion discussion. Hope that helps. –Novem Linguae (talk) 18:29, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
Yes it does @Novem Linguae:. The article stated some claims that made me think maybe notable but it wasn't easily verifiable. I only read WP:AFCSTANDARDS and the instructions before getting started and I thought I was supposed to be more flexible with non-English sources. I did think it might be notable, but it turned out there were more problems with the citations than I realized, which Praxidicae has explained in more detail in other venues of discussion. Spudlace (talk) 18:43, 15 August 2022 (UTC)

After this discussion, I think I'll just see how things go at AFC for now and apply for NPP again at a later time. This has definitely been a valuable exchange with good input for me. Spudlace (talk) 19:07, 15 August 2022 (UTC)

To manage stubs and dirty redirects. nirmal (talk) 04:33, 25 July 2022 (UTC)


I am an active editor of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) articles and have been working on several redirects related to them, and have worked on a few disambiguation pages. I frequently encounter the need to move some MCU articles for title changes (sometimes to revert vandalism), with many drafts necessitating moves from their initial Untitled states to officially titled ones (though many have beaten me to them in the past), moving to a more acceptable titling format (history example), and the drafts having to be moved to mainspace once filming starts per WP:NFTV. I comply with the guidelines at WP:AT, and have an understanding of when to use WP:NATURALDAB, which prefers natural disambiguations over parenthetical disambiguations, for Rogue One or Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (which I made Glass onion (disambiguation) to help with navigation for). In the past I did make an erroneous undiscussed move at Draft:Blade (2023 film) but I learned from that mistake as it was a poor jumping of the gun on a minor italics formatting choice. I also was among those who suggested in the WP:MCU task force (before it was anything official) the naming conventions for the Phase articles such as Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase Four being the title for that article over others discussed such as the more unambiguous and yet still helpful titles Phase Four (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which were natural disambiguations but not decent disambiguations in their own right as the former's format is generally used for in-universe characters or elements, while the latter's read more as a sentence, so a compromise in the titling format I helped suggest was agreed upon. I also did recently move Secret Wars (film) to Secret Wars (2014 film) given Avengers: Secret Wars was just recently announced and that 2014 film needed to have further specification as the common name for the Avengers film would lie at Secret Wars (2025 film), even though that would not be the main article title.

I also feel that a lot of pending changes happen and that they are not checked fast enough. 𝙷𝚎𝚕𝚕𝚘𝚑𝚎𝚊𝚛𝚝 👋❤️ (𝚃𝚊𝚕𝚔🤔) 01:26, 7 August 2022 (UTC)


I've been editing Wikipedia for multiple years now and have over 2,000 edits. I also frequent Special:RecentChanges and have a good understanding of what constitutes constructive and unconstructive editing. Having pending changes reviewer rights would allow me to make a more positive contribution to the community. Partofthemachine (talk) 06:08, 7 August 2022 (UTC)


I have been editing Wikipedia with actively many edits of my name, contributing, as well as defending vandalisms. I'm fit for the position Ningalonnichpovuka (talk) 20:30, 8 August 2022 (UTC)

 Not done due to relatively limited editing history. I recommend that you consider re-applying in the future, when you have additional experience. Best, GABgab 23:10, 14 August 2022 (UTC)


I asked for protections to be lifted on Aztecs, but they were only lowered. It is on my Watchlist and I would like to expedite and modify useful edits such as these. I will use the powers for good and not for evil etc. SamuelRiv (talk) 22:13, 9 August 2022 (UTC)

Reason for requesting rollback rights

I've got 260+ mainspace edits, am a regular to recent changes, and I'd like to think I'm a good judge of vandalism. Heyallkatehere (talk) 23:35, 9 August 2022 (UTC)

I noticed that you're not always warning editors when you revert their edits (e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4). Could you please comment on that? Thanks, FASTILY 08:09, 12 August 2022 (UTC)

I would like rollback as I have done anti-vandalism work for some time now, and would like rollback as a useful tool, and to use Huggle. JML1148 (talk) 10:38, 13 August 2022 (UTC)

Hi, for diffs 1, 2, and 3 I was unsure exactly what template to use for that. I could have just left a message, in hindsight, but I didn't do that. I'm unsure why I didn't warn diff 4, as they should have gotten the missing citation template. Hope this answers your queries. JML1148 (talk) 08:03, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
Please ensure that you are always leaving warnings. If you are reverting good faith edits, then it's especially important to notify the editor; I recommend using tools such as Twinkle or RedWarn which makes this trivially 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. Could you please make a commitment to leaving warnings for every revert? -FASTILY 22:07, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
I have both RedWarn and Twinkle, actually! I am happy to leave a warning for every editor that I revert, and I understand my mistakes. JML1148 (talk) 07:45, 16 August 2022 (UTC)
Great, thanks for confirming.  Done -FASTILY 08:24, 16 August 2022 (UTC)


Currently enrolled within the WP:CVUA. I have been attempting to patrol the recent changes more and more and would like to experiment with using Huggle. Requesting access to utilize that tool. Skipple 02:21, 16 August 2022 (UTC)

 Not done You enrolled in CVUA yesterday. That's *way* too soon to be requesting rollback. Courtesy ping for @Cassiopeia -FASTILY 02:28, 16 August 2022 (UTC)
