All rights available on Wikibooks are handled here, including reviewer, importer, uploader, administrator, bureaucrat, CheckUser, pseudo-bot, and bot flags. A nomination must demonstrate how the project will benefit from granting the rights.
- To nominate a user (including yourself), add their username to the appropriate section below. Please explain why you feel the nominated user would be a good choice. All registered Wikibookians may comment, and provide arguments in support or opposition. For the bot flag, technical information about the bot may be requested. See the specific requirements for each type of access on their respective pages.
- Consensus does not need to be demonstrated in granting reviewer, importer, and uploader flags. Administrators may use their best judgement in granting those. All other tools require community consensus and can only be granted by bureaucrats. Access to CheckUser is governed by CheckUser policy. After about one week, if there is consensus to grant access, then a bureaucrat will make it so and record the fact here. If not, a bureaucrat may refuse to grant the rights and the request will remain until a consensus is reached.

Removal of permissions
|Note: You may request removal of your own rights at meta:Steward requests/Permissions. Requests to remove others' rights should be placed here, whether due to inactivity, or abuse.|
Just thought I'd let you all know that I have requested at meta that my admin rights here be dropped. I still pop in on a regular basis, but I haven't done any admin tasks in quite some time. It is better to not have the rights if they are not actively used. Thanks for trusting me here. It has been enjoyable. I'll be around, just not as a sysop. --Jomegat (discuss • contribs) 00:37, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Hey. I work mostly reverting vandalism and I think that having the reviewer flag will be beneficial, given that my edits would not need to be reviewed. I could say that I'm a globally trusted user who works fighting vandalism cross-wiki :) — ΛΧΣ21 06:22, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
- Hm. You've made one content-space edit here. Note the autopromotion criteria at Wikibooks:Reviewers; we do sometimes promote folks manually ahead of schedule, but the reason we set the criteria to wait until a user is moderately seasoned is so that reviewers have some familiarity with the ways we do things that make us different from other projects (usually Wikipedia is the biggest hazard since, realistically, regular contributors to most of the other sisters are already aware that every sister is different, whereas it's really easy for a Wikipedian to be so overwhelmed by that place that they just don't realize how things vary from sister to sister).
- You only just arrived here. To me, it does seem a little early for promotion. Remember, other than Wikijunior, when you revert vandalism the revert is instantly visible (and when you undo it on Wikijunior, the vandalism wasn't instantly visible anyway). --Pi zero (discuss • contribs) 12:26, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
Not sure if I don't have the permissions or if I am to stupid to figure out how to do it... If I read these instructions correctly I don't have permissions, because that is not what I am seeing. when I look here. I work OTRS tickets mostly for Wikisource, but Wikibooks has more then Wikisource so I peak in on yours once in while to answer the easy stuff. Wikibooks could defiantly user a stronger presence at OTRS, to answer questions. In the mean time could some one review and approve the 3 pending changes at History of Wyoming to correct a red link issue? Jeepday (talk) 00:29, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
- That much I can do for you, though ISTR that it isn't strictly necessary in WB. Except for the kids' sections, the latest edit is what shows by default, rather than the latest approved, so the redlink issue was already resolved. Chazz (talk) 03:16, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
- As Chazz notes, there's likely no great need for you to have the reviewer priv here. Promotion is automatic once you meet the criteria; by my count, though, over the years you've only made about 20 content-space edits (your first edit was apparently in 2006, though don't ask me how that can be so when your account here was created in 2007 :-). --Pi zero (discuss • contribs) 11:54, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
- I also edit with the account User:JeepdaySock, not sure if that brings the count up high enough to make a difference, but given this & this I am probably pretty low risk from being a potential problem. JeepdaySock (discuss • contribs) 15:07, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

I've made close to 60 edits to Wikibooks, so, while I'm not really experienced, I'm not miles and miles from being automatically promoted. That said, my main focus here is reverting vandalism, and it would be good to have a rollback button for that. I have experience with being a rollbacker on WMF projects--I have been a rollbacker on the English Wikipedia since January and was a rollbacker on Wikidata for several months (before I became an admin there). Thanks, --Jakob (Scream about the things I've broken) 19:34, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
- Afaics, the two autopromotion criteria you're short on are total edits (criterion is at least 100, you've got a little more than fifty) and total content-space edits (criterion is at least 50, I think you've got about forty); you look fine on things like at least 8 edits spaced 2 days apart.
- I'd forgotten rollback is bundled with reviewer. I'm inclined to grant, though I'll wait just a bit just in case somebody wants to object. (Usually if there are objectors I'm one of them, so I have a certain sympathy for someone who wants to object but finds it's already been granted.) --Pi zero (discuss • contribs) 21:14, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
