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).

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question --- On your user page, you wrote "I enjoy finding spam, accidental uploads, and stolen images, which are usually not used anywhere. 2000+ images detected, over 99% correct rate".
  1. . How did you arrived at this figures and why did you think it should be mentioned on your user page?
  2. Compare and contrast the FoP in Nigeria, South Africa and Somalia. Regards. T Cells (talk · contribs · email) 20:16, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
  1. Any files that were tagged for deletion incorrectly remain listed under Special:Contributions/BevinKacon, it can be calculated from this. User page is to describe your edits.
  2. I would consult COM:FOP. Nigeria - only permanently placed and publically accessible works can be used. SA is the complete opposite end of scale, nothing is acceptable. Somalia, Template:PD-Somalia could be used, however it's a grey area as described at Commons:Copyright_rules_by_territory#Somalia.--BevinKacon (talk) 20:40, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
