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).

J Milburn[edit]

  • J Milburn (talk  contributions  deleted user contributions  recent activity  logs  block log  global contribs  SULinfo) (assign permissions)
  • Reason: I was formerly an administrator here on Commons, though lost the tools due to "inactivity". One of the tasks I did was occasional license reviewing, especially of fungal images used on the English Wikipedia. I would like to continue doing this from time-to-time. I am experienced with the licensing expectations of Commons, though most of my experience of copyright/licensing issues is on the English Wikipedia, where I have been an active contributor for about ten years and an administrator for most of that.

  • Scheduled to end: 15:34, (UTC) or later
  • Just to clarify, you are an 'ex' OTRS member... your account was closed in November 2015. I'm guessing you had also become inactive there also. Not that this is a reason to oppose. Reventtalk 16:08, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
    • Thanks, this is news to me. I've really not been active on OTRS in years. J Milburn (talk) 17:59, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
  • @J Milburn: Do you plan to review your own uploads as well? --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:50, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support We need help with reviewing files. J Milburn is an experienced ex-admin, and I'm sure he knows not to review his own uploads. INeverCry 19:47, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
