Before requesting, please read Commons:License review and relevant pages such as Commons:Flickr files and Commons:Picasa Web Albums files.

To become a reviewer, one needs to be familiar with the general licensing policy of Commons and the common practices of reviewing. A reviewer is required to know which Creative Commons licenses are allowed and disallowed on Wikimedia Commons. They should also be dedicated in license reviewing every so often and offer their help in the backlogs. Post your request below, so that the community can voice their opinions. The community may ask a few questions to verify the user's knowledge. After a few days, a reviewer or administrator determines whether there are no severe objections to the candidate. If there are not, the user will close the request and add the candidate to the list of reviewers. If permissions are granted, you can add {{User reviewer}} (or one of its variants) to your user page and begin reviewing images.

Please submit your request at the bottom of this section. Copy the code below and only replace "Reason" with the reason you are requesting this user right.

  • Ibrahim.ID (talk  contributions  deleted user contributions  recent activity  logs  block log  global contribs  SULinfo) (assign permissions)
  • Reason: Hi, I'm active user in commons over 6 years, I'm also admin in Arwiki and active reviewer of files licenses there, I'm also member of OTRS team, I got License reviewer before and two admins in Commons endorse me (here), but after 3 weeks, an admin here revoke this right from me (without notice or discussing), because of a small mistake in OTRS ticket, and he thought I'm not suitable for this right without any respect for my history, it actually was a tough and unjust decision, you can check my edits and all the licenses that I reviewed (the list).

Anyway, after 8 months I hope to get this right again to help and reduce the backlog, I have a good experience in creative commons, FOB and License laundering, I know the responsibilities of the right and I never review my files, you can also asking me too, thanks --Ibrahim.ID 08:08, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
