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!

Please see Commons:Bots/Requests/BulbaBot 5. My bot needs AWB rights (the bot one) to make a test run, and if approved, to use AWB for the bot tasks specified in the bot request. Thank you. Poké95 05:37, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, I will be doing the test run tomorrow, since I don't have enough time for today. It is currently 20:30 in my place and I sleep commonly around 21:00 to 21:30. I rarely sleep 22:00. And currently, I use an mobile device, so I have to turn on my PC which have AWB on it, which consumes time. Poké95 12:32, 22 October 2016 (UTC)



I am constantly browsing the new images feed to look out for any troublesome uploads that come in. With this right, I will be able to use my knowledge to mark the good ones I see patrolled. Thank you. —Skyllfully (talk | contribs) 02:06, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Because my bot imports the French Wiktionary sounds, it requires that the pronunciations keep the same naming norm: "language-region-word.oga". However during this job, I've noticed that a small minority, which represents at least dozens of pages, needs to be renamed. For one week I've already made several renaming requests, but I'm afraid that won't be enough.

So I would need the filemover right (and I've read Commons:File renaming for that). JackPotte (talk) 00:08, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

I have been uploading and categorizing a lot more on Commons lately, and occasionally make spelling mistakes in the filenames of my photos or notice mistakes in others'. It would be helpful for me to be able to correct them myself rather than requesting that an admin do it. Thank you. Funcrunch (talk) 15:28, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello admins, i would like to request the Filemover rights on Commons. I am an active editor and uploader for 7 years with 4,200+ edits on Commons and a lot of uploaded pictures. I would like to be able to correct mistakes of my own and of others in file names, so I want to request filemover rights. Thank you. Sven-121 (talk) 16:23, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
