Hello Wikipedia administrator, I wish to request permission to use the AutoWikiBrowser (AWB) tool. I'm an editor with 1,000+ edits and 3+ months of service. I also made 500+ mainspace edits, including 250+ non-automated edits. My prior work has been with categories, which gave me experience with other semi-automated tools (250+ edits with HotCat). My current focus is WikiProject Islands and the Islands portal where much help is needed with countless of islands, islets and atolls articles and stubs that require a variety of fixes, updates, tags, links and templates. I believe that AWB can greatly assist me in making these repetitive editing tasks faster and easier. Please note that I am familiar with both Wikipedia's policies and AWB's rules of use. You can trust me with this important tool. Thank you for your consideration. History DMZ (talk)+(ping) 07:49, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Requesting AutoWikiBrowser rights to use JavaScript Wiki Browser. It helps with performing menial tasks that would otherwise be very time consuming to perform. I've been using this tool on pl.wikipedia for some time now, I am also a bot operator on, so I have experience in operating automatic and semiautomatic edits in Wikipedia interface. As is not my main wiki, I would be very glad if someone could {{ping}} me if he/she would like to ask me any additional questions or when the request is granted. Cheers!

Hi, I have read the AWB guide and I promise to use this tool cautiously and follow the guidelines. I believe I have made more than 500 edits and more than 250 non-automated edits in the mainspace.--SharʿabSalam▼ (talk) 03:30, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
For what purpose do you see yourself using AWB? Primefac (talk) 16:52, 24 May 2020 (UTC) (please do not ping on reply)
To be honest, I still dont know how exactly this tool works. I know that it makes it easier to do repetitive tasks. I have created articles in Category:Sub-districts in Al-Ma'afer District and in many other similar categories that use this source "". The source is now dead and I have found a better, more reliable and extremely informative source "". I am hoping this tool will help me replace all of "" sources with "" sources. I am also hoping to fix refs and do some other general tasks with it.--SharʿabSalam▼ (talk) 00:14, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
