I'd like to give AWB a try because using VisualFileChange for handling Special:WhatLinksHere pages is quite cumbersome. To be used primarily for fixing misspelled or not existing Template: entries. See also User:Achim55/workshop. Thanks a lot. Achim (talk) 12:01, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Hey all, working on german Wikipedia and Wikicommons as a author, photographer and instructor I would like to get permission to move files to support Commons and other user request or correcting the naming. It would be helpful also for my own pictures from the different projects I'm working on and for training projects giving to other photographers as well as WLM, WLE or WLPA 2013, etc. Thanks in advance for your support. --Michael (talk) 20:13, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

I am working in different projects for commons and Bengali Wikipedia. I majorly upload photographs in Commons, it would be extremely helpful for me to get the file mover permission to organise the images in Commons and other user request or correcting the naming.I have been requesting for the rename of files for a long time and I know the importance of it. Also, I am aware of the procedure and criteria of renaming files.Thanks in advance.Schwiki (talk) 09:02, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Moheen Reeyad[edit]

Here I am an active user from 2013 with 5000+ edits and 700+ uploads. In previous, I have worked with file renaming per request; and its a long possess. So, I would like the Filemover right in order to be able to rename files with "meaningless or ambiguous names" or "obvious errors" into something more useful. I know how to use this tool. Regarding my trustworthiness, I am a Sysop on bn.wikipedia and Autopatroler here. Thank you. Moheen Reeyad (talk) 20:37, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

The Herald[edit]

Been editing for over two years and made over 50 successful rename requests. This is not the first time I'm going for the right but this time, I'm sure I'm more experienced with my 600+ edits. Holds the right in en-wiki for over an year and does good job(IMO). Thank you. -The Herald the joy of the LORDmy strength 09:08, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
