  • 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. Please do not nominate other users unless they have already agreed to be nominated.
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. The importupload permission requires a 5-day discussion before the right can be granted.

Benrattray (discuss · contribs · count · logs · block log · rfp · rights [change]) (create/edit a page blocked by auto)

Hi, can we please have permission to create and edit the following page? Exercise_as_it_relates_to_Disease/Effects_of_a_swim_program_for_children_with_Autism I vaguely recall having problems in my class with titles that include the word autism.... thx --Benrattray (discusscontribs) 05:02, 5 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Benrattray: you don't need a permission to make pages. However, an admin may be able make blacklisted pages for you. These pages may then be edited by anyone.Xania, can you create it? L10nM4st3r / Roar at me 17:47, 5 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
obviously, but that is what the error message says with this type of error. And why would this title be blacklisted, its about health.
Please can the following page also be created (because its blacklisted) - Exercise as it relates to Disease/The effects of physical activity on the social behaviour of children with Autism
It seems to be an issue around blacklisting and the word autism. Whatever the reason for that, I don't think these pages are the cause for concern the blacklisting. Thanks. Benrattray (discusscontribs) 22:07, 5 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Benrattray: I checked the abuse log and couldn't find a log of you triggering the edit filter. Could you explain what kind of warning you got? I'm not an admin here but I can try and help out to the best of what I can. SHB2000 (discusscontribs) 10:30, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@SHB2000: I tried it myself. It was a local or global blacklisted page title. It's not an edit filter. L10nM4st3r / Roar at me 11:20, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ah yes – didn't occur to me that the page would be on the title blacklist. The word "autism" is on the global blacklist which is probably why Benrattray wouldn't have been able to create that page. SHB2000 (discusscontribs) 11:24, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
ok thanks. I will find another way to get these student projects completed. Benrattray (discusscontribs) 23:35, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is a very old request, but FYI, admins can bypass the title blacklist. MarcGarver (discusscontribs) 16:24, 29 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

TenWhile6 (discuss · contribs · count · logs · block log · rfp · rights [change]) (autoreview)

Hello. I am active in fighting global vandalism and I speak English, that’s why I am also here patrolling in the recent changes. I also hold the rollback flag in a few wikis. (Hope, I am trusted. CA for my usergroups) --TenWhile6 (discusscontribs) 21:22, 8 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not done – I'm not denying the fact that you are trusted, but your edit count on en.wb is very low and a majority of those edits were made yesterday. You will automatically receive the reviewer right once you pass a certain criteria (which hopefully won't be a long time away). The autoreview right is more so for making mass edits (e.g. mass-fixing types, etc.). --SHB2000 (discusscontribs) 23:08, 8 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

AWB usage

Hi, I had AWB enabled under my old username. I've changed username from "Rubbish computer" to "Alextejthompson". I had AutoWikiBrowser permissions enabled on my old account, but it hasn't carried over to my new one. I am planning on looking to fix common typos. Am I ok to use AWB here for that? Have any rules changed? Alextejthompson (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 15:14, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Alextejthompson:, you can update the AWB page with your new username. We tend to be lax on this. Leaderboard (discusscontribs) 17:28, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi Leaderboard, thanks for letting me know. Alextejthompson (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 17:30, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

refcanimm (discuss · contribs · count · logs · block log · rfp · rights [change]) (wikibooks administrator)

I have been editing the book Canadian Refugee Procedure for some years. I would like to have the permissions necessary to delete some old orphaned pages on the book.

I'm not sure about permanent adminship since you don't seem to be particularly active in the community (i.e. discussions, etc) as far as I can see. Perhaps temporary adminship would be more appropriate, and the scope would be limited to deleting pages in the specific book? In the meantime, you're welcome to flag pages for speedy deletion if they meet the criteria! —Kittycataclysm (discusscontribs) 13:23, 29 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm opposed to this. Adminship cannot be limited to just deleting pages and just from a particular book. I'd expect to see an interest an understanding of all aspects of adminship before supporting. MarcGarver (discusscontribs) 16:22, 29 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MarcGarver these are fair points. I am noticing, though, that the policy does technically say that you can grant temporary adminship "to perform specialist tasks" and that this right can be immediately revoked without discussion if there is evidence that disallowed actions are taking place. In terms of precedent, I was previously granted temporary adminship in early 2023, which I used at the time only to address persistent vandalism. But, I do see the concern, and I am definitely hesitant to grant any administrative powers to someone who isn't a more widely active community presence. —Kittycataclysm (discusscontribs) 19:45, 29 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Oppose per MarcGarver. There is a lot more to adminship than merely deleting pages from a singular book. --SHB2000 (discusscontribs) 04:28, 30 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Unlike some of the others, I think it's OK to consider temp adminship to a user that mainly works on one book, when there is a good reason for requesting that right. However, I'm not seeing that here. I see only about 15-20 entries in your deleted user contributions page, and only a couple from this year. As Kittycataclym says, you can easily flag pages for deletion. If there's something specific you'd like to do that requires admin rights that I'm missing, let us know. Also BTW: the reviewer right that you have is actually generous on what you can do - you can move pages without a redirect for example.

Adamvialsmoore (discuss · contribs · count · logs · block log · rfp · rights [change]) (wikibooks reviewer)

I'm the main coordinator of the ORCID Advocacy toolkit and would appreciate reviewer rights to be able to clean up after writing sprints, such as the one running this week - the contribution runs in fits and starts so I'm not sure when I'll hit the auto reviewer criteria — Preceding unsigned comment added by Adamvialsmoore (talkcontribs) 16:55, November 30, 2023 (UTC)

  • Question: @Adamvialsmoore: You don't usually need reviewer rights to clean up content. Is there anyting very niche that you would like to do with the reviewer rights, such as rollback or the ability to accept or decline edits, that I'm missing here? --SHB2000 (discusscontribs) 07:01, 1 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
