Wikipedia:File mover

The file mover user right allows users experienced in working with files to rename them, subject to policy, with the ease that autoconfirmed users enjoy when renaming Wikipedia articles.

Any administrator can grant this right at their discretion to trusted users who regularly work with media files and have demonstrated familiarity with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines surrounding renaming this type of media. There is no set requirement but users should be well-versed in Wikipedia's image and media policies (specifically the renaming guidelines given in this document), have experience with images, and how the rename process works. Experience with the equivalent tool at Commons and other relevant experience with media files may be taken into account.

The user right is not normally given to brand-new editors, regardless of the number of files uploaded.

If you wish to request File mover rights for yourself or another user, please see Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/File mover. Administrators do not need to request or add this user right for themselves or other administrators; it is automatically granted as part of the administrator tools package.

There are currently 403 file mover users, which makes the total number of users with this permission 1,485 (the rest are administrators).
