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.
  • When requesting rights that need support by the community (e.g. administrator) please go to Commons:Requests and votes!



Strike Eagle[edit]

Have more than 650 edits and been here for quite some time. I don't think my edits would require patrolling. I already have rollback, PC and autopatrolled rights in en-wikipedia Thanks, ƬheStrikeΣagle 08:34, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

I am already granted AWB access on English and Marathi Wikipedias. I have a good expertise with this software and have been using it for a while. I would like to use AWB on Commons for moving some files to new Category page, etc. Thanks. Abhijitsathe (talk) 06:21, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

I am a bureaucrat user in many Tamil Wikimedia projects. I am involved in organizing Wiki Loves Food contest. I need to run AWB for some maintenance tasks like adding campaign category to all images submitted through this contest. Thanks.--Ravi (talk) 11:56, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
