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!

I transfer a lot of files from hewiki to commons, and AWB could really help be. Thank you. Mikey641 (talk) 22:24, 28 January 2017 (UTC)


Requesting rights to use AWB. I do a lot of copyediting, categorizations, etc. on other wikis, and always found it to be difficult without AWB here on Commons. Thank you. Cherkash (talk) 04:39, 3 February 2017 (UTC)


Lately I've been working on large, repetitive sets of geometric images (see Category:Subdivision_squares;_transparent and Category:Subdivision_triangles;_transparent): I also do diffusion of Category:Images_that_should_use_vector_graphics sometimes (which is template-based, so cat-a-lot doesn't help). AWB would make many things easier for me. Thanks! -Apocheir (talk) 16:07, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
