This is a page where users can request rollback rights. Like in requests for adminship, a community discussion is not needed, and instead, an administrator will see if the user's contributions and effort to improve the wiki are good enough. A bureaucrat will then give the tool, if the administrator who made the decision is not one.
There are no fixed requirements for the tool, but a good amount of mainspace edits (400+), anti-vandalism, activity, and being trusted by other users are required.
What is rollback?
Rollback is an extension used for anti-vandalism and undoing multiple bad edits. A user that is granted with the tool can see a [rollback] link in page history, on the topmost edit. By clicking this link, all edits by that contributor are reverted into the last edit by someone else, in one click of the mouse. The edit summary for the action is "Reverted edits by Example (talk | block) to last version by Example2". This is most useful for reverting vandalism quicker.
It should be noted that all administrators have the tool by default.
If you think you are fit for rollback, feel free to request it. However, you must provide a reasoning why you are fit.
A good sample of a request (the format, rather than the text):
Please Place all requests under this line.
- MasterOfMelons-Yes please, i request rollback rights, because i want to revert easy and quick a spammer's edits and help the wiki.
- DiseaseMaster7-I wish to request rollback privileges so that if I find a case where someone damaged a page with spam, I will be able to use rollback to revert the page to a more acceptable and useful format.
- I endorse him for these privileges. :) TheFallenOneGOTH (Talk) 21:56, September 30, 2016 (UTC)
- You have been extremely active around here lately, and I think your dedication to this wiki is reason alone to trust you with rollback priveleges. You've got my vote!
