Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Other rights

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; it is also shown on this page. Do not add a section header or sign your message; these will both be done for you.

Requests for the confirmed rightEdit

Please see Wikidata:Confirmed users for details.

I'm translating Wikipedia pages from English to Spanish and can't link the latest page I translated with the rest via Wikidata because it is semi-protected and so am requesting autoconfirmed authorisation to do so. MulberryTwine (talk) 17:01, 14 February 2021 (UTC)

I've already added the sitelink of eswiki to the Wikidata item. You can request an edit with {{Edit request}} on talk page when a page is protected. Sun8908 💬 11:27, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

  •   Oppose You lack experience on Wikimedia platforms. Wikidata has higher criteria than other projects. —Eihel (talk) 03:50, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

LarsOH94 (talkcontribsnew itemsSULBlock logUser rights logUser rightsxtools)

I'd like to start with a few minor edits such as adding hyperlinks to pages that already exist on Wikipedia but are not connected. One of them is the page on War but the page is semi-protected (until May).  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by LarsOH94 (talk • contribs) at 22:26, 20 February 2021 (UTC).

  Not done while w:War may be semiprotected, it is already connected to an item, and the wikidata item, war (Q198), is not protected. If you want to edit the item here on wikidata, you can - if you want to edit the page on Wikipedia, confirmed rights here won't help. --DannyS712 (talk) 21:28, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

Mate I just want to do some batch statements real quick with quickstatments to add citation on wikipedia. Hfnreiwjfd (talk) 19:10, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

  Not done Most of the edits are (deleted) test edits. Lymantria (talk) 20:54, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

Requests for the rollbacker rightEdit

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.

I would like to obtain the flag to perform cross-wiki counter-vandalism (currently most active on enwiki and wikidatawiki). ~ Ase1estecharge-paritytime 09:44, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

  •   Support - good revert with swviewer. --C1K98V (💬 ✒️ 📂) 12:24, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
  •   Done - Taketa (talk) 15:21, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Requests for the property creator rightEdit

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.

Requests for IP block exemptionEdit

Note: only local exemptions should be requested here. For global blocks see here.
