I already use Pending Changes Reviewer Rights to check for and revert any vandalism, I believe that rollback rights would help too TeaLover1996 (talk) 21:32, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done You have recently engaged in edit warring--I would like to see more time between edit warring and rollback. Malinaccier (talk) 22:16, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
@Malinaccier: Recently? It was two months ago that is not recent TeaLover1996 (talk) 14:18, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes, seems recently to me. I stand by this decision. Malinaccier (talk) 14:38, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
Well if thats what you think I will wait until applying again for rollback rights. Regards TeaLover1996 (talk) 15:05, 19 May 2015 (UTC)


The usual tool access reasons. Antrocent (♫♬) 23:11, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Antrocent, I've given you the user right as you've been around a while, have lots of edits and should know what vandalism is, by Wikipedia definition. Just remember that rollback should typically only be used in clear cases of vandalism. Thanks for your help. Rjd0060 (talk) 21:37, 22 May 2015 (UTC)


I think getting rollback rights would help me revert bad edits & vandalism better. Kamran Mackey (talk) 00:59, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done - Looking through your contribs you have just over 500 edits and don't appear to have much experience in fighting vandalism. I would recommend trying out a tool like Twinkle to get some experience first and then re-requesting in a month or so. Best, Mifter (talk) 22:53, 22 May 2015 (UTC)


I have a nervous habit of tapping on the laptop's touchpad and moving the mouse pointer around. Since receiving the rollback right a few months ago, I have accidentally clicked rollback three times. I have read Wikipedia:Rollback#Accidental_use_of_rollback, but I still feel the right has more cost than benefit in my case, and would like it revoked if that can be done without harm to my record. ―Mandruss  03:05, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done - Rollback removed. Best, Tiptoety talk 03:16, 23 May 2015 (UTC)


I have been using twinkle to rollback for years and I didn't realise I wasn't a rollbacker untill it failed. Since I updated my phone yesterday, somehow the twinkle option is not appearing. The "pending changes" option still does so I guess "rollback" might as well. Also, where do I post the issue I am facing? Thanks! — Yash! (Y) 03:32, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Although you may find you don't like it near as much as twinkle rollback. Personally I wish I didn't have it, but admins don't have a choice in the matter. If I had to guess I would say the browser in your phone just doesn't support twinkle, but WT:TWINKLE is where the actual experts on it hang out. If you get it fixed up and don't want "normal" rollback, ask me or post here again to have it removed. Beeblebrox (talk) 04:01, 24 May 2015 (UTC)


I protect mainly articles about Czech Republic, Czech politics and Czech government where I often get in touch with vandalism, I will take care about these topics and generally whole Wikipedia. For me, it's great opportunity to help and prevent people from misunderstanding and false information. Thank you Itsyoungrapper (talk) 18:10, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Looking through your contribs you have just over 200 edits and it doesn't look like you have much experience in fighting vandalism. I would recommend trying out a tool like Twinkle to get some experience with anti-vandalism work first and then re-request in a month or two if you would still like the tool.

I have been using Wikipedia and editing it on a monthly basis since May 2012 (3 year) ;Creat more than 100 Articles and I am currently on more than 3,000 edits and much of my editing is copy-editing (including the reversal of vandalism); I am aiming to do more on Wikipedia including more substantive edits but I also want to take my minor edits further and make more effective use of my tools.--SaməkTalk 21:33, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Beeblebrox (talk) 16:11, 27 May 2015 (UTC)


Hello, I am a regular editor at Wikipedia but do not hold any significant responsibility rather than a normal user and recently have been doing rollbacks in the case of vandalism. I have read all the regulations regarding the rolback regulations and my history is clean as well Sammanhumagaint@lk 07:38, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Beeblebrox (talk) 16:24, 27 May 2015 (UTC)


I frequently patrol pages and i believe this tool will compliment my activities on Wikipedia Flixtey (talk) 17:08, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

I would like to stop vandalism faster instead of unfoing edits. I am trusted for this right. Jacob Lott 8 talk 16:32, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done. Please see the notice at the top of this page. With only 23 edits to the mainspace, I don't think you have sufficient editing experience yet. Take a moment to check out what counter-vandalism is at WP:CVU and when you have made 200 or so edits to articles you may wish to enroll at the Counter Vandalism Academy to learn more.
