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

To apply, submit your request at the bottom of this page. Copy the code below and only replace "Reason" with the reason you are requesting this user right. Requests will be open for a minimum of two days (48 hours).

Ok, I introduce myself, about 10 years I am in Wikimedia movements in India and around the world. Former president and secretary of WMIN ( India Chapter). Longtime Administrator Bengali Wikipedia and Wikisource Project. founder member of the West Bengal Wikimedians, who are organizing WLM from India and OTRS member. Presently I am working with CIS-A2K Team. I have a basic minimum knowledge of Copyright policy. The commons image reviewer user community mostly review the FlickR images. But my works will be mostly at Category:Unreviewed photos of GODL-India or if time permits at FlickR. Being an Indian am very much knowledge about Indian Copyright act. So I can judge/review the images, which would be uploaded under {{GODL-India}}. If I have any doubts during reviewing any file, I should consult the commons community. Thank you for your understanding. Jayantanth (talk) 14:40, 20 October 2018 (UTC)
