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. The importupload permission requires a 5-day discussion before the right can be granted.

Permission to use AutoWikiBrowser

Hi, can I use AWB on this wiki to fix typos? I used to do this before permission separate to enwiki was required here. I'm familiar with using AWB on enwiki and other websites. Rubbish computer (discusscontribs) 18:58, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

  Support I haven't been around that long, but Rubbish computer has a proven track record of improving Wikibooks since 2015 according to their user contributions page, and they used the tool without apparent incident before. Seems like a good idea to me. --Mbrickn (discusscontribs) 19:59, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
Actually we don't have a formal requirement to request permission, but we do prefer people to be Reviewers so that their edits are autoreviewed. As you are a Reviewer, I'm fine with your request. QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 21:28, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

Hi QuiteUnusual, if I add my name to Wikibooks:AutoWikiBrowser/CheckPageJSON, would that enable me to use it? And if so is it ok if I do so? Cheers, Rubbish computer Ping me or leave a message on my talk page 12:14, 31 July 2021 (UTC)

yes that's fine. QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 13:57, 31 August 2021 (UTC)

Hi, as per the criteria given in Wikibooks:Reviewers, I should have qualified for Reviewer status automatically. Is there anything else that I need to do? AshLin (discusscontribs) 13:11, 24 August 2021 (UTC)

Thank you, its automatically happened today. AshLin (discusscontribs) 10:40, 28 August 2021 (UTC)

Mathmogeek (discuss · contribs · count · logs · block log · rfps · rights [change]) (reviewer)

I now am sure I qualify for auto-reviewer. Please let me know if there is anything else to do though. --Mathmogeek (discusscontribs) 08:47, 4 September 2021 (UTC)

The bot(?) that does this acts in a delayed fashion, that's what happened to me. I recommend that you continue editing. It should happen eventually. AshLin (discusscontribs) 04:28, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
The bot still hasn't done this, and it's been almost two weeks now. Not sure what is causing the delay at this point. Mathmogeek (discusscontribs) 11:32, 16 September 2021 (UTC)
@AshLin and Mathmogeek It's not done by a bot, but it's rather automatic. This happened to me as well, and apparently it stopped doing this between 2019-202 SHB2000 (discusscontribs) 05:55, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
It's not a bot, it's a function of the MediaWiki software and it isn't reliable. I've manually added +reviewer QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 08:31, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

Nigos (discuss · contribs · count · logs · block log · rfp · rights [change]) (autoreview/reviewer)

This would be very helpful when reverting LTAs (ie GRP) so that it would reduce the backlog for reviewers. Thanks, Nigos (discusscontribs) 15:32, 21 December 2021 (UTC)

I've added autoreview. Adding reviewer is an automatic process and we don't usually do it early except for those in global roles (Stewards, Global Sysops, and Global Rollbackers). QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 18:57, 21 December 2021 (UTC)

This user has a Wikipedia article and has over 1 million en.wiki contributions. Enough said. T. Gregtregretgtr (discusscontribs) 23:35, 17 January 2022 (UTC)

Well, I'm happy to accept responsibilities here if the community thinks that I'm an asset, but to be clear, what is most important is not quantity of edits on a sister project, but quality of edits on this project. So, very much appreciated T, but I encourage anyone who is discussing my suitability as an admin here to focus on edits I have made on this project and to weigh if my competence and judgement as displayed on en.wb in particular are relevant. Were I an admin here, I would probably focus on cleaning up and maintenance. I have admin rights on another small English wiki, en.wq, and I focus on vandalism. I also have advanced rights on some larger wikis like en.wikt, where I do more maintenance and some blocking. —Justin (koavf)TCM 23:41, 17 January 2022 (UTC)
