How to make a request

  1. First make sure you clicked the correct edit-link and you are actually requesting the right you want.
  2. Copy the following and append it to the text-area:
    {{subst:rfr|{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}|2=reason}} Thank you. ~~~~
  3. Replace reason with a rationale based on the rollback guideline, renaming guideline or the patroller guideline
  4. Press Save page


  • Please check back periodically so you can respond to any queries.
  • If your request has remained unanswered for several days, consider personally asking an administrator.
  • Administrators, please welcome users granted a new right with an appropriate message.

I'm currently editing pages and images related to the National Register of Historic Places in Florida and there are a lot of images with wrong Commons categories to update. Thank you. Pietro (talk) 14:25, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

I have uploaded more than 7000 pictures since 2008. I want to rename some of these ones (by reason of wrong names) myself because this means a lot of work. Furthermore I would like to help renaming others pictures. M 93 (talk) 20:43, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
