Requests for Permissions Archives
  • Close discussion with {{closed}}/{{end closed}}
  • Requests should be moved to subpages at Wikibooks:Requests for permissions/User Name
  • Change the heading to +Position or -Position

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.

I would like Reviewer. I think I meet the requirements for it. Artix Kreiger (discusscontribs) 20:10, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

Your wish has been granted just before your message. JackPotte (discusscontribs) 20:13, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
wait, I don't get it. Why was I auto-promoted just now? I see the requirements and it says 8 edits at least 2 days apart form each other. I think my edits would have been achieved a few days ago. Artix Kreiger (discusscontribs) 20:15, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
There are other requirements. Also, it doesn't happen the second that the eighth edit occurred but requires some kind of batch process to run later. QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 13:16, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Hello, I haven't made much edits here but I have created the article Cookbook:Christmas cinnamon cookies and I have more than 3,000 contributions on Wikipedia. I am also a rollbacker and reviewer on Wikipedia. I would like to help clear the backlog - about half the pages about chess I read have pending revisions. Thank you. L293D (discusscontribs) 03:11, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

@L293D: Although it's certainly good that you have wikimedia experience, each sister project has its own culture. So we want users to have en.wb experience, particularly, before they get the review bit here, and that's why we have the autopromotion criteria for reviewer set where they are. (Please pardon my edit to your wikilink.) --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 03:38, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
@L293D: Additionally, I should mention that a lot of our backlog also has broken edits made by a naive user with a bot, that have to be now manually corrected. While I'm sure that our admins appreciate the offer of help, please be aware that the job is much messier than it seems. Chazz (talk) 08:44, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
Hi! Did someone mention chess? Where do I find this chess backlog so I can help clear it too? Chi Sigma (discusscontribs) 22:42, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
