Autoconfirmed users are contributors who are logged in to an account created more than four days ago. Autoconfirmed users can
- edit semi-protected pages (autoconfirmed),
- move pages except images and categories (move),
- overwrite an existing file (reupload), and
- perform captcha triggering actions without having to go through the captcha (skipcaptcha).
In some situations, it is necessary for accounts to be exempted from this customary confirmation period. The 'confirmed' group contains the same rights as the 'autoconfirmed' group, but can be granted by administrators as necessary by request on Commons:Requests for rights. See Special:Listusers/confirmed for a list of users in this group.
