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.

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 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 am a professor of chemistry at the Memorial University of Newfoundland ( I am planning to have the students in one of my classes contribute pages to a wikibook for the course ( I would like to be able to review the contributions myself. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cnrowley (discusscontribs) 22:38, 6 September 2015

Apparently this user already has the right. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 03:46, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
The request here was made at 22:38 on September 6, and autopromotion occurred at 23:38 on September 25 — apparently at the same moment the user made a certain edit, which suggests the software promoted them the instant the criteria were met. --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 12:32, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi there, we currently prepare a phrasebook for refugees in Europe. I'd like to better support volunteer editors in the next steps with the role of a reviewer. Once the translation tables are ready, we'd also be happy for some support (technical / distribution) by the wikibooks community. Thanks!

The point of the reviewer right, and the delay in allocating it, is to ensure contributors understand Wikibooks. I see a number of basic errors (e.g., not using book categories) on the pages you have created, so I don't believe you are ready to have the right allocated in advance of the automatic promotion.
