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.

Nominations
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.
Outcome
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[edit]

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 (discusscontribs) 00:37, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

I think I should get reviewer status so that I can use my copyediting skills and check them against writing. StudiesWorld (discusscontribs) 12:29, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

What is it you want the reviewer bit for? I'm unclear what you mean. I see you've basically edited here on two occasions, both this year, total of twenty-four mainspace edits, none on Wikijunior (which is basically the only place where the review bit has direclty visible consequences). The criteria for autopromotion are meant to let people get experience with Wikibooks first. --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 15:48, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
For fact checking and copyediting in all spaces. StudiesWorld (discusscontribs) 20:49, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
These do not sound to me like activities that require the review bit. Perhaps I'm not understanding this description the way you're intending it. --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 23:00, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
As Pi Zero has said, the only use for Reviewer permissions is for those actively reviewing edits especially those related to Wikijunior (and a small number of other youth-targeted books) as these books will only show reviewed edits by default. All users become Reviewers once they have met the criteria as mentioned on Wikibooks:Reviewers.--ЗAНИA Flag of Estonia.svgtalk 23:28, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
