The Wikibooks community allows administrators to grant and revoke permissions.[1] For administrator, bureaucrat and CheckUser access, see Wikibooks:Administrators. For bot access, see Wikibooks:Bots.

Admins have the trust of the community, and use their discretion when granting or revoking these rights. Requests are made at WB:RFP, where any admin can grant the right if they choose to. Declined requests should be explained and archived for later perusal. Granted requests will be logged at Special:Log/rights, and may be archived into the history. Admins are responsible for making good decisions regarding which users get the tools. Admins are absolutely not to wheel war with user rights - those admins which do will not be permitted to change user rights.

The full list of rights available to user groups is at Special:ListGroupRights.
