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.
Note: You may request removal of your own rights at meta:Steward requests/Permissions. Requests to remove others' rights should be placed here, whether due to inactivity, or abuse. Proposals for the removal of advanced permissions (included admin and bureaucrat rights) are governed by the WB:ADMIN policy. A minimum discussion of one month is required to remove an admin or bureaucrat for inactivity.
I'd like to contribute to a particular book: Irish, the Irish language book, which seems to have been orphaned for a few years now. The book needs a lot of reorganizing--it looks like it started life as one giant text dump page, then was split into a few smaller pages, then abandoned. I'd like to create a reasonable structure, then try to get the (very active) online Gaeilgeoir community involved to turn it into something useful and active.
I'm doing what I can in the current structure but a lot of pages really need to be merged, split up, renamed, or moved to subpages, and I don't have the permissions to do that. I can see the Move tab on Wikipedia pages but not in Wikibooks, so I assume this is a permissions problem. If Reviewer isn't the right permission, I'd like to request whatever the lowest level of permissions is that lets me move pages. Chapka (discuss • contribs) 08:57, 9 June 2020 (UTC)
Welcome! There's no problem with you just going ahead and editing; don't worry overly, for now, about review. You seem like a promising new Wikibookian, and I recommend you just move forward (judiciously, of course, but it sounds like you're doing that) with your plans; I've adopted a book myself, a time or two.
The wiki software is supposed to automatically promote users to reviewer after they've done a moderate amount of content-editing here, spread out a little over time. The theory is that they'll have picked up a bit of the local culture by then and so are more likely to wield the reviewer privilege in a way consistent with the local culture. If that part of the wiki software were working right, you can see the criteria at Wikibooks:Reviewers#Automatic criteria. You're not close yet; you've only been here, what, a few days?
When you figure you satisfy the criteria, remind us by asking here again; since that part of the software stopped working right, we've been doing supposed-to-be-automatic promotions by hand.
Also to note: @Chapka: will be automatically promoted to autoconfirmed on 2020-06-11 14:14 UTC; after that date moving pages shouldn't be a problem, as they will gain the 'move' and 'movestable' rights. So if you can just hang on until then things should sort themselves out. --Jules(Mrjulesd) 15:44, 9 June 2020 (UTC)
Hello, I realize that I may be doing this a bit early, but I am fixing ref errors, adding reflists, and such. I plan to start using JWB for this (which makes automated editing much quicker) so I don't want to flood pending changes and cause a lot of work for the reviewers. Thanks for your consideration. --Prahlad balaji (discuss • contribs) 14:53, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
Please don't use any automated tool until this request has been considered properly. While there's nothing wrong with what you have been doing, it would be nice if in some cases you could "fix properly" rather than "technically fix". What I mean by this is that, to take one example, you removed the link to a missing file - which is fine. However, the file could easily have been replaced and by removing the broken link you made it harder for another editor to find and fix the problem. I'd argue that you'd be better not fixing this than hiding the problem (e.g., see this diff). Anyway, this isn't a reason for you not to have Autoreview, but a request that you don't just make a lot of automated technical edits without looking to see if a better fix could be made.

Comment Actually, this sort of thing seems, broadly, a reason not to be in too much of a hurry to advance the normal schedule of automatic granting of review privs. The purpose of our threshold before automatic promotion is, in part, to combat the erosion of local project culture by waiting till users have had time to absorb some of the local culture of the project before assuming their edits will be consistent with the local culture. --Pi zero (discuss • contribs) 16:35, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
