Commons:Requests for rights


If you request the rollback-right, please read the how-to first.

Admins and anyone with global rollback don't need to request rollback.

How to make a request

  1. First make sure you clicked the correct edit-link and you are actually requesting the right you want.
  2. Copy the following and append it to the text-area:
    {{subst:rfr|{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}|2=reason}} Thank you. ~~~~
  3. Replace reason with a rationale based on the rollback guideline, renaming guideline or the patroller guideline
  4. Press Save page


  • Please check back periodically so you can respond to any queries.
  • If your request has remained unanswered for several days, consider personally asking an administrator.
  • Administrators, please welcome users granted a new right with an appropriate message.
  • When requesting rights that need support by the community (e.g. administrator) please go to Commons:Requests and votes!

  •   Not done - You don't appear to have any exemplary reasons as to why you need to be confirmed right now, You'll just have to edit more and be here more. –Davey2010Talk 01:28, 14 January 2018 (UTC)



A biology student from de.wikipedia rapidly scored several hundreds edits (mostly related to taxonomy) with good edit summaries. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 08:51, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

Alaspada has +3 000 edits on Commons since he started here in 2012. Thank you. Dan Koehl (talk) 22:08, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
  Done good candidate. If you know more users who don't need patrolling but aren't autopatrolled: please request a flag for them too. Natuur12 (talk) 23:01, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
Sure will @Natuur12:, within the next days. Now and then I patrol Commons, and then its easy to identify high producing users who create a high patrol workload, and can be trusted. Thanks again. Dan Koehl (talk) 23:07, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

AutoWikiBrowser accessEdit






I'm going through the "Files with bad names" categories and fixing them. Thank you. @sikander (talk) 03:29, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
@Siqbal: Please display your actual username in your signature to effectively enable pinging and mentioning.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 18:35, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: Oh! That's a good point! Done! // siqbal { talkpage } 23:01, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
@Siqbal: Thank you. I don't see that you have made many rename requests recently, are there any you are particularly proud of?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 01:37, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
  •   Done let's not turn file mover into a big deal okay. And please don't use this page to make people change their signature. Natuur12 (talk) 13:11, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
@Natuur12, @Jeff G.: Thank you! // siqbal { talk } 17:22, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Extended uploaderEdit


I often upload files from Geograph Britain and Ireland. When Geograph2commons isn't working (like now), it would save a step if I could upload_by_url. Geograph is already whitelisted for upload_by_url because Geograph Update Bot uses it. Thank you. --bjh21 (talk) 21:28, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
  Done good luck! Natuur12 (talk) 22:11, 16 January 2018 (UTC)


Hello, having the permission may make it easier for me to upload some of my audio and video recordings, as I wouldn't need to convert each file. Thanks! NaBUru38 (talk) 20:55, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
  Question @NaBUru38: do you mean uploading by URL? If you do, then is the site serving these recordings present in the Commons: Upload tools/wgCopyUploadsDomains list? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 21:10, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
On second thought, one can infer from the context that this is a MP3 problem, not a upload_by_url problem. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 08:34, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
  Done this allows you to upload .mp3-files. .mp4 is not supported but have you ever tried Commons:Firefogg? Natuur12 (talk) 15:02, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
Hello, Firefogg has become deprecated. Recent Firefox versions don't support it. --NaBUru38 (talk) 19:42, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

  Comment For videos, we have video2commons. Regards, Yann (talk) 04:35, 21 January 2018 (UTC)


Wikimedian since 2006, over 800 uploads to Commons. I'd like to upload a U.S. government public domain MP3. Upload by URL would also be useful. Thank you. Antony-22 (talk) 04:44, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

I would like to ask extended uploader permisions so that I can more easily upload freely licensed pictures from and simular websites. - Robotje (talk) 13:06, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
  Done @Robotje: voor het nationaal archief is Commons:Glam2Commons misschien een nog handigere optie. Natuur12 (talk) 15:05, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
