  • Change the heading to +Position or -Position

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.

I nominate myself for autoreviewer. I'll probably only write commentary work like this one and I think I have written enough original material to qualify as not a vandal. As a some of my book changes are still pending, I think it would also take a little bit of work off the backs of others. If you read this, it would be nice if you could accept the outstanding pending changes in the book as well. Could also just make me a full reviewer, although don't expect me to work outside of my niche, I simply lack the time :/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ayutac (talkcontribs) 10:54, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

We generally prefer to let users gain experience on the project, acclimating to its unique local culture, before giving them reviewer privs. Likewise autoreview, mostly. Cf. WB:Reviewers. --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 12:40, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
While I disagree with Pi zero to an extent, I think that you'll do fine without autoreview at this time, partially because of your sporadic activity, and also it's easier to review your type of edits since you create them in one go. Maybe try again after about 40 edits? Leaderboard (discusscontribs) 14:47, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
I don't mind. I just thought it would be more convenient for others. I don't really care about about the pending change line. --Ayutac (discusscontribs) 16:21, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
