August 2[edit]


I would like to request a rollback permission, to help fight vandalism. I'm an admin in arabic wikipedia (and much more active there) --Histolo2 (talk) 17:10, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done Please re-request once you have a bit more experience here at as currently with only 42 edits it is hard to judge your ability to accurately determine and revert vandalism. Maybe try twinkle, or even just the undo button. Tiptoety talk 17:13, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

August 4[edit]


I'd Like to use the rollback feature to deter vandalism and clean up what has already been done to the great Wikipedia!

Lochie239 (talk) 21:43, 31 July 2008 (UTC) :{{done}} Remember to only use rollback for clear cases of vandalism. Lochie239 talk 21:55, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Nice try. X mark.svg Not done - two edits, one to huggle.css, one to this page. Fritzpoll (talk) 23:13, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Little Truckers Club[edit]

We would like to enhance the profile for volvo, and add information about changes to the logistics industry Little Truckers Club (talk) 10:59, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done See WP:ACC. I don't think you fully understand what this tool is for -- it is for creating accounts for other people when they request them. See also WP:SPAM and WP:NOT; Wikipedia isn't the place to enhance company profiles. Thanks, PeterSymonds (talk) 11:01, 30 July 2008 (UTC)


So I can use Huggle to better fight vandalism. MrStalker (talk) 17:22, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done I feel that you need a bit more experience identifying vandalism, seeing as reverts like this should really be done using the undo button and accompanied by a edit summary. Tiptoety talk 17:47, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
I don't understand your rationale. I've didn't revert that because it was vandalism and I have never said so either, so what has that to do with anything? It was a proper revert, what does it matter what's said in the edit summary? It's pretty obvious when you look at the diff why it was reverted. --MrStalker (talk) 21:06, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
The tool you used should only be used to revert vandalism, that is the problem.  Asenine  16:16, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

August 5[edit]


Would like to use Huggle again after previous ban Dyn amization 17:16, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done I don't know about your previous ban, whatever that was about, but reverts like this are not appropriate. You need to slow down. Since May, you have not made many edits, so I think you need to show a better understanding before it's granted. Thanks, PeterSymonds (talk) 17:20, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

August 7[edit]


been with wiki for sometime and feel its easier clicking on a button rather than copying the previous content and pasting it, making other changes etc etc etc... thanks in advance..! Krishvanth (talk) 11:11, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
Symbol question.svg Question: Do you understand that rollback is only used to revert blatant vandalism? Thanks, PeterSymonds (talk) 12:24, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
Pictogram voting info.svg Administrator note: I also don't see that you've done a lot of vandalism work, at least in your last 500 edits. I don't think you really need this tool. Hersfold (t/a/c) 16:47, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done Consider installing popups or Twinkle and re-applying after you've demonstrated you can identify vandalism accurately. –xeno (talk) 20:09, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

August 8[edit]

Montgomery '39[edit]

I hope to be given a second chance at using rollback, for I have learnt my lesson. If I shall misuse my Rollback rights once more, you may remove them, and I will not come back asking for them. Thank you. Sincerely, Montgomery' 39 (talk) 13:13, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
I asked for this user's rollback to be removed after this conversation because of concerns over use of Huggle. Rollback was removed only a few days ago, so the user has not had time to demonstrate that they now have an understanding of WP guidelines and policies. I don't think restoring rollback so soon would be helpful. Thanks. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 15:26, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done Sorry, it's far too soon for your rights to be restored after misuse. Please demonstrate accuracy in reverting and re-apply in 2 or 3 weeks. Thanks, PeterSymonds (talk) 15:29, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

August 10[edit]


To help with reducing vandalism and spam Kedessa (talk) 11:15, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Only six edits since May 2007. Feel free to ask again after you become a more regular editor. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 11:47, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

August 11[edit]


want to use Huggle Estark37 (talk) 17:35, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done Your account is far too new and we have no way to determine if you would use rollback appropriately. Please consider using WP:UNDO or Twinkle to fight vandalism for a couple weeks and re-apply. –xeno (talk) 17:37, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

My Account[edit]

To Fight Vadalism, of course helps recent changes patrolling when i catch them vandalizing bandits, Yeehaw! My Account (talk) 22:46, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done Too few of edits, it really does not give me anything to go off of when trying to decide if you will abuse rollback or not. Try using the undo button or twinkle and come back an re-request in a month or so. Cheers, Tiptoety talk 22:53, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
The next time you request rollback without fulfilling the requirements that have been set out to you in no fewer than three prior requests, I will seriously consider blocking you for forum shopping. –xeno (talk) 22:58, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

August 12[edit]


I've been granted the right to create account and wants to be added to the 'Account Creators' group. Cahk (talk) 18:56, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done at this time. You do not require the account creator flag to participate in the account creation process. Please demonstrate need by first hitting the account creation throttle through WP:ACC work. –xeno (talk) 18:57, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

August 15[edit]

Master of Pies[edit]

Well, my role as a user on Wikipedia is to be able to find vandalism and sockpuppets. I believe rollback willl be able to help me do this in a much quicker manner. So, please give me this permission. Thank You! --Master of Pies (talk) 17:46, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done At this time you have far to few edits for me to be able to adequately judge your ability to use the tool, I recommend that you try using the undo button or twinkle and come back in a few months. Tiptoety talk 18:21, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

August 19[edit]


To stop various link vandalism on several paranormal pages. Scienceisyourfriend (talk) 17:44, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done You've only been here for five days and you only have 16 edits to the article space. I need to see a reasonable history of tackling vandalism so I can discern how you'd use the tool. Reapply once you've accumulated more experience, using the WP:UNDO button for instance. Thanks. WilliamH (talk) 17:49, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Message From Xenu[edit]

I'd like to help reduce Wikipedia's vandalism. Message from XENUu, t 20:20, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done Edits like this and this are not vandalism. Please take your time, and try using Twinkle a bit more making sure to be very careful as to what you identify as vandalism. Also, take a peak at WP:VAND. Tiptoety talk 20:23, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
I never said it was vandalism, I undid it as I noted there was no references or citations to a verifiable source. Message from XENUu, t 20:28, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

August 22[edit]


I need rollback enabled so that I can use the 'Huggle' vandalism removal tool Z897623 (talk) 16:38, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done You have just five edits. You need to demonstrate a history of discerning and reverting blatant bad faith edits, such as with the WP:UNDO button. Please reapply once you're more experienced. Thanks. WilliamH (talk) 17:27, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

August 26[edit]


(No reason given) --Theoneintraining (talk) 14:36, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done According to this, you do not have an account on the internal account creating interface. When you get one, and you get over the six-a-day limit, please apply once more. Thanks, --Maxim () 14:53, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

N.samimi island[edit]

Huggle usage N.samimi island (talk) 19:18, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done You have just eleven edits to the article space, none of which are tackling vandalism. You need to demonstrate a history of discerning vandalism and blatant bad faith edits, such as by using the WP:UNDO feature, before I can grant you this right. WilliamH (talk) 19:27, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

August 27[edit]


I am now working on New Pages Patrol and am running into recurring vandalism edits on pages such as Matthew Kemeny (in addition to notability concerns, etc.) chrylis (talk) 02:45, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done In all of your edits to the article space, only two are actually reverting vandalism. I need to see a larger history of reverting vandalism and discerning good faith edits from bad faith ones (such as with the undo feature) before I can grant you this flag. Regards, WilliamH (talk) 11:59, 27 August 2008 (UTC)


I would like rollback permision to be more effecient in removing vandalism Foxtrotman (talk) 18:10, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done You have very few recent edits and have less than 200 edits ever. Try editing some more for a bit and then come back and we will be happy to give them to you. -Djsasso (talk) 18:13, 27 August 2008 (UTC)


Rollback has stopped working for me. When clicking on the rolback link nothing happens. Undo works fine. Not sure if this is the right place to post the problem or not. As a test, created a test edit and tried to roll that back with no success. Dbiel (Talk) 00:38, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Try emptying your monobook.js, purging your browser's cache, and see if that does anything to help. It could be a buggy script that's causing the problem. :-) Stwalkerstertalk ] 06:48, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestion. I emptied the monobook and tested rollback and it worked fine. I restored the monobook and tested rollback and it worked fine. Looks like it may have be a cache issue or something. Anyway it works now. Thanks again for the advise and it did solve the problem. Dbiel (Talk) 19:28, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done I'm marking this as a {{not done}} as rollback seems to be working fine, and it's perhaps something with your user preferences. Maxim () 18:32, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Huggle Usage and Undoing Vandalism - makes life easier. ClosedEyesSeeing (talk) 02:51, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done - sorry, you have under 500 edits of which most are welcoming users, and very few are actually fighting vandalism. GbT/c 07:56, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

August 30[edit]


Was just wanting know if I could apply for the rollback feature. I'm using the Lupin anti-vandal script and only intend to use it to remove things I know are vandalism. Thanks for your time :). VanMavus (talk) 12:08, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done Not enough experience, would suggest reapplying in a few weeks. WilliamH (talk) 12:40, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
