Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Rollback

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



I have been using twinkle for a while now and have gotten familiar with it. Having rollbacks would be useful. SKAG123 (talk) 00:05, 13 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I see that you are failing to consistently warn editors when you revert their edits. Why? Are you aware that we have tools such as Twinkle or RedWarn that make this extremely easy? -Fastily 21:17, 13 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Some of these edits were reverted days after being made. Do I still need to warn editors after? Thanks SKAG123 (talk) 04:30, 14 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes. -Fastily 04:59, 14 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Upon re-review, I'm going to mark this one  Not done. It's tough for me to confidently say whether you'd use the tool effectively, and I think you'll benefit from more experience. Please follow my advice above and reapply in a month if you're still interested. -Fastily 22:29, 20 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]


One and a half months ago I requested rollback permissions and was instructed to patrol and notify users of the reverts, which I have done on multiple occasions. My original reason for permissions did not change. I mainly edit and watch over automotive articles, where a common misconception is that an introduction year is the same as start of production. I have spent a lot of time searching for sources proving the correct production start and vandals keep reverting the dates even when there is a reference or even deleting the ref. Sometimes they do multiple nonsensical edits at once just because of some common rumours or misconceptions or lack of understanding for the units of measurements differences. Thank You for Your time.

 Not done for the same reason the previous request was denied. I'd like to a) see you spend more time patrolling Special:RecentChanges and b) start consistently warning editors when you revert their edits (Twinkle & RedWarn can help with that). -Fastily 22:29, 20 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I issued 30-something warnings in past two months, mostly from watchlisted articles. What is the required level? YBSOne (talk) 22:33, 20 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'd like to see at least a month of sustained activity patrolling Recent Changes. Also you're still not consistently warning editors when you revert their edits; here are some examples from the past day: 1, 2, 3. -Fastily 22:41, 20 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello! I'd like to request rollback rights because I patrol RecentChanges often and think it would be beneficial to my reverting, and I'd like to use the AntiVandal script. I've been patrolling RC since September 2023, and I also have Pending Change Reviewer userrights. I'm an AfC reviewer, so I am used to seeing problematic edits and know what to do about them (see my CSD log or my AfC stats), as well as how to communicate with new editors. —asparagusus (interaction) sprouts! 18:03, 17 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Been a user for a couple of years already, reverting vandalism preferably in articles I keep on my watchlist. I have been for a long time too, a rollbacker on the Spanish Wikipedia, Wikidata and on Commons, so I think I can use the tool accordingly with the local policy. I last applied two years ago and have since used Twinkle, while also adding warnings when needed on users' talk pages. Bedivere (talk) 01:48, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I'd like to be able to have a more efficient way of undoing vandalism than Redwarn, so I don't have to click through multiple menus to revert multiple edits. Endersslay (talk) 16:26, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
