? This is a proposed policy. You can choose to follow it. If it is followed by all, and has wide community support, it may become an official policy. Please comment on the collaboration page of the policy on any changes you would like to make, or just edit the page directly. References or links to this page should not describe it as "policy".

Users who are members of the group Pre-Reviewer have the ability to:

  • Have one's own revisions automatically marked as "accepted" (autoreview)
  • Mark revisions as being "accepted" (review)
  • Use {{Pre-review}} and conduct Pre-Reviews
  • View list of unreviewed pages (unreviewedpages)
  • Edit pages protected as "Allow only autoconfirmed users" (editsemiprotected)
  • Quickly rollback the edits of the last user who edited a particular page (rollback)
  • Not be affected by IP-based rate limits (autoconfirmed)

Requests for pre-reviewer status


All requests to be given pre-reviewer status should be made at the requests for Pre-Reviewer page.

Except for in rare cases, administrator should generally give Pre-Reviewer to people meeting the below requirements, and not give to those who do not.

  1. Autoconfirmed or confirmed
  2. Have at least 5 published articles, at least 1 of which was in the 30 days before the request.

In addition, pre-reviewers should generally be able to respond to questions by the user whose article they are pre-reviewing in a timely manner. If they do not respond within 24 hours, another (pre) reviewer may respond in their place. Pre-Reviewers should follow all regular policies at all times, and communicate in a constructive manner during the pre-review.

All editors who may pre-review an article should use the Pre-Review template to do so.
