Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Other rights

From Wikidata
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Other rights: Requests for other rights
To add a request for the confirmed, property creator, or rollbacker rights, please use the following form. Add it to the bottom of the relevant section. Unlike permissions such as bureaucrat, these can be assigned by administrators.
Administrators already have the rights of these groups, and do not need to be assigned any of them.
{{subst:Request for permissions
|user    = {{subst:REVISIONUSER}}
|reason  = REASON
The "reason" is what will show up as a preloaded summary for administrators when they access Special:UserRights. The "comment" is what will show up on this page. If you leave the "comment" field blank, the "reason" will show up here instead. Do not add a section header or sign your message; these will both be done for you.

Requests for the confirmed right[edit]

Please see Wikidata:Confirmed users for details.

Requests for the rollbacker right[edit]

If you are not nominating yourself, please secure the acceptance of the candidate. The rollbacker flag is usually only granted to users who have some experience in fighting vandalism on Wikidata and/or other Wikimedia projects. For more information, please see Wikidata:Rollbackers.

While not required, {{subst:Rollbacker}} can be used to notify a user that they have been granted rollback. Rollbackers may wish to add {{Rollbacker userbox}} and/or {{Rollbacker topicon}} to their user or talk pages.

Rollback would help with the anti-vandalism work I do here. I have experience fighting vandalism on the English Wikipedia. Simplexity22 (talk) 14:30, 14 February 2019 (UTC)

I am an experienced editor with edits on article content in Wikidata, and have created some articles, none of which have been met with objections. Although I mainly work to improve existing articles, I plan to create more articles in the future, I have also become aware of the burden placed on reviewers. I would therefore like be granted auto patrolled right so as not to create unnecessary workload for reviewers and Rollback access would help with the anti-vandalism work I do here.
I have eliminator, autopatrolled, rollbacker, uploader, patroller, page viewer and remover access in Persian wikis and Translate-Admin access in Meta. --DejaVu (talk) 23:35, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

 Not done @DejaVu: 1.You placed this request in the section for requesting rollback, not autopatrolled, 2.Autopatrolled is no longer used on this wiki, and 3.I am denying your request for rollback permissions because you have made almost no vandalism reverts here. Vandalism on Wikidata has a different appearance than on other wikis so we require that you gain experience with anti-vandalism here first.--Jasper Deng (talk) 01:46, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Requests for the property creator right[edit]

Please see Wikidata:Property creators for details.

Users may self-nominate, or nominate one another; however, users should not be given this right if they do not want it, and non-self-nomination requests should be put on hold until the nominee comments accepting the nomination.

Administrators may add the property creator flag to the accounts of users who:

  • are generally trusted members of the community, preferably with at least some history in working with properties, and
  • have shown a satisfactory understanding of how Wikidata works, especially regarding the property namespace, datatypes, and related concepts.

Users should generally not be made property creators solely or primarily based on their work on other projects; property creator is currently the only right unique to Wikidata, and this should be taken into consideration when requesting or granting it.

Property creator right must be only granted following a request on this page which must remain open for at least 48 hours. An exception may be made for the case of regranting of the right to former property creators and administrators where the reason for removal was uncontroversial or due to inactivity.

Property creators may wish to add {{User property creator}} to their userpages.
