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).

  • You have to replace {{FlickrVerifiedByUploadWizard}} with the standard flickr review template ({{Flickrreview}}), the feature at Upload Wizard has still some bugs. Or you use flickr2commons. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:47, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
    Thanks! Let me give it a try and see if I understand what you are suggesting. RAN (talk) 17:21, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
    There is no option to do what you suggest during the upload: "Release rights. The file is under the following license on the source site "Flickr": No known copyright restrictions." There is no option to change the review template or the license during the upload. Do I need different rights, so that the Flickr button I click on gives me ({{Flickrreview}} automatically?

    Nope, you can only do it (replacing Flickr(long template) to FR) after UploadWizard process is over and it is published. — regards, Revi 12:00, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Can I get the review rights temporarily to see if that solves the problem, then when the the upload wizard is fixed, I will not need the rights anymore. I mostly just upload Bain images and corresponding public domain obituaries and government documents like passport applications. RAN (talk) 15:46, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
    • In upload wizard the review is done with a js script on client side, thus the *automated review* is restricted to admins and LR. Please use the bot to do the review as suggested by Revi. Btw, your block on enwiki is a bit concerning so i wouldn't support adding this flag to your account. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:21, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
      • This resolved the issue. You should be able to upload now, the bot will be used. --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:34, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Steinsplitter and Wikicology - Editor doesn't seem to have much knowledge inregards to what LR is ..... Oppose for now. –Davey2010Talk 20:45, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
  • I'll take a look at BAIN as part of User:Fæ/LOC#Bain_Collection_(ggbain). These are likely to be better resolution than the versions on Flickr. -- (talk) 18:38, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
