Wikifunctions:Confirmed users

Wikifunctions Confirmed user

Confirmed users are users who hold the confirmed user group.


Confirmed users are users who have been given access to the same permissions as autoconfirmed users before their account has reached the threshold to be automatically added to the autoconfirmed user group. Notably, users with this group can move pages and edit semi-protected pages themselves without making an edit request.

Autoconfirmed users

Wikifunctions Autoconfirmed user

Autoconfirmed users are users who hold the autoconfirmed user group, the permissions granted to autoconfirmed users are identical to those granted to confirmed users. All users are given the autoconfirmed user group once their account on Wikifunctions reaches an age of 4 days or more.

How to request

Users may apply for the confirmed user group at Wikifunctions:Requests for user groups#Confirmed.


To be granted this user group you must present clearly why they should be exempted from the confirmation period when requesting or be a legitimate alternate account of an already autoconfirmed account. Your account must not be autoconfirmed to be granted the confirmed user group.


Administrators are able to grant the confirmed user group at their own discretion, however this group should only be granted temporarily until the account will be autoconfirmed.[1]
