Please review the
AWB guide before making a request. Users are rarely approved unless they have either 250 non-automated
mainspace editsor500 total mainspace edits. You can check your non-automated contributions on
XTools. Administrators are automatically approved and do not need to request access. For bots, you must first have a
bot approval request approved, or in trial; link to your BRFA in the request.This page is for requesting AWB Access for English Wikipedia only. Other projects have their own check pages and you should ask administrators there to add you.If approved, your name will be added to the
CheckPage. If you will make many or fast automated edits using AWB, you may wish to use a separate (or bot) account for that purpose; first create the account, give it a userpage declaring it to be your alternate account, then make the request using your main account.
I am currently "dusting" all the articles on the communes and localities of Luxembourg (updating extremely outdated population statistics, dealing with unaccounted bad quality edits, replacing the bottom footer with a more convenient one) and AWB would be a nice help. I'm also just curious to test its potential usefulness.

Going to hold off (for the moment) just because of
this thread (mainly to see if there will be a secondary reply). I just get a little twitchy if someone's making a bunch of edits and someone has to ask "why" prior to asking for something that will allow for a bunch of edits.
