Requests for Permissions Archives
  • Close discussion with {{closed}}/{{end closed}}
  • Requests should be moved to subpages at Wikibooks:Requests for permissions/User Name
  • 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.

Nominations
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.
Outcome
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.

Guywan (discuss · contribs · count · logs · block log · rfp · rights [change]) (Autoreviewed / Reviewer)Edit

I'd like to request Autoreviewed and Reviewer rights. Autoreviewed for obvious reasons, and Reviewer so that I may review pending changes to books that I am interested in. (Chess, Chess Opening Theory, Chess Strategy, and, if ever a regain the courage to deal with it, Japanese.) I realise I have made no edits to Chess or Chess Strategy, but all in good time!

I have zero experience with reviewing, but I do believe I have good common sense. I do not intend, at this time, to leave these areas (although I will not rule out a foray into computer science and programming, at some stage) and assist with the backlog. Sorry!

If no promotion will be forthcoming, could I ask that someone go through my contribs and approve pending changes?

Regards, GUYWAN (t · c) 20:25, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

@Guywan: I went through and checked your pending changes - they all looked good. But, it looks you should get autopromoted soon - if you keep contributing it'll happen automatically. --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 23:29, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

I completely forgot about the bot task discussed at Wikibooks:Reading room/Proposals/2019/June, and when I just remembered and went to run it I found out that the rights had expired. Ping @Leaderboard: for renewal. Can they be indefinite this time? Thanks, --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 12:22, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

@DannyS712: Not sure if they should be indefinite (especially because the bot hasn't done a lot yet), but I wouldn't mind renewing for a couple of months or so. Leaderboard (discusscontribs) 17:08, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
...so can you renew it please? --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 05:06, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
@Leaderboard: ping --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 00:07, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Sorry, forgot about it.   Done for two months. Leaderboard (discusscontribs) 19:20, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

Dino Bronto Rex (discuss · contribs · count · logs · block log · rfp · rights [change]) (importer)Edit

I would like to ask for permission to import pages from Wikipedia, because I have been lately asking for imports through the request for imports page, but there are still lots of pages left to import into two books (one that I have created, and another that I’m contributing to), and I kinda feel bad to spam the requests for imports page. Could I please have permission to import? Thanks in advance, Dino Bronto Rex (discusscontribs) 16:51, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
