All rights available on Wikibooks are handled here, including autoreview, reviewer, importer, uploader, administrator (and interface 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 —though discussion is welcome— in granting autoreview, reviewer, importer, and uploader flags. Administrators may use their best judgement in granting those. Interface admin was historically part of the administrator tool set and is granted on request to administrators. 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.

大诺史 (discuss · contribs · count · logs · block log · rfp · rights [change]) (Autoreview/Autopatrolled)[edit]

Hi, I'm from commons & I would like to request to have the autopatrolled permission as I am here to change images/files (usually png -> svg, gif/jpg -> png). As you can see, commons is currently changing the table images of chemical elements from png format to svg format, so I will be active here to make the necesary changeds. By giving me this permission, my edits can be autoreviewed and backlog on the "to be reviewed" edits will be reduced. 大诺史 (discusscontribs) 05:13, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Comment We've kept up with these so far, I think. These are all to Wikijunior, I believe. --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 12:01, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

DannyS712 (discuss · contribs · count · logs · block log · rfp · rights [change]) (Reviewer)[edit]

I'd like to request to be manually flagged as a reviewer to help patrol changes. I haven't yet made 100 edits, but my changes so far have been constructive. I won't misuse the rights, and am happy to answer any questions. I have experience on enwiki as a reviewer and rollbacker, and know how to use the rights properly. Thanks, --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 08:00, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

@DannyS712: I'm not quite sure why you need the rights - no evidence of "patrolling changes" as such. Could you explain on that - maybe I'm missing something. Leaderboard (discusscontribs) 08:46, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
@Leaderboard: so far I've been going through recent changes and undoing the spam or vandalism, but this would also let me approve the good changes. --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 18:12, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
@DannyS712: I don't think you have much experience here to gain reviewer, as @Pi zero: often says, reviewer here is a bit different compared to some other projects. That's just my line of thought though. Leaderboard (discusscontribs) 14:44, 26 May 2019 (UTC):
Just looking through some of DannyS712's unreviewed edits, on one hand they've certainly been doing useful counter-vandalism edits, on the other hand some moderately tricky situations arose that can benefit from a certain amount of additional project-specific experience. For example, in one case they made a useful de-wikifying edit, but then they also figured to remove the {{dewikify}} tag, which seems to me premature as the page still had some half dozen or so redlinks. On another page I found they'd undone IP vandalism to a page that already had a pending IP vandalism edit to it (and it took me a bit of studying to be quite certain the earlier edit was vandalism). Another page had a whole pile of unreviewed previous edits on it that I wasn't even sure of, and I left the whole sequence still pending.

Note that it's not urgent to have review for these things; we really do try to keep up, but when we don't, the unreviewed edits will wait for us. So I don't think there's any lasting harm in letting DannyS712 continue making helpful edits and learning the project by osmosis, for a while. --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 15:52, 26 May 2019 (UTC)

@Pi zero: I understand. I'd like to withdraw this request --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 05:19, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
