User:The Lord of Math

I have been contributing for 2 months and reverted about 150-200 vandalism edits, some using Twinkle. I realized that it would be more convenient to use TW together with other tools such as this rollback or even Huggle. I don't always counter vandalism when I'm online (as I have many other tasks) but this tool will definitely help me a lot in counter-vandalism. tLoM (The Lord of Math) (Message; contribs) 01:00, 11 January 2020 (UTC)
Replying since I was pinged at the Teahouse (perma): I was on the fence on this, leaning toward suggesting waiting a bit more as I had a vague sense that something was off, but held off saying so in favor of letting another sysop opine without me saying so. ~ Amory (utc) 11:52, 14 January 2020 (UTC)
yes, I am only active for 2 months, which may definitely be a concern. On the other hand, I did a huge load of anti-vandalism in 2 main surges, warning at least 200 vandals and making at least 250-300 reversions. So - it’s up to your decision. tLoM (The Lord of Math) (Message; contribs) 13:16, 14 January 2020 (UTC)
 Done for three months, short tenure is indeed a concern but the edits seem solid. Please come here again shortly before the expiration of the flag.--Ymblanter (talk) 16:38, 18 January 2020 (UTC)


I always fight against vandalism. I mainly focus on Indian football related articles and keep them vandalism free. Few minutes ago, I reverted incorrect and vandalism from an article.  :) S A H 12:52, 12 January 2020 (UTC)


Having made more than 1900+ edits, I am an extended confirmed user as well. I wish to be given the rollback rights because I found reversing edits to the undamaged version manually quite inconvenient; I'll make use of the right with discretion. And I asked for permission three months ago but it didn't happen. Taukeerppw (talk) 10:02, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

User:William Harris

I have been using Twinkle for a number of functions over the past few years, including its rollback function. Recently at Dingo I was in a situation where I would have preferred the Rollback facility's edit summary, which would have read "Reverted edits to last version by User B" without indicating the IP name who made the edit, possibly then avoiding the reverted user to take offence and resort to the sockpuppet incident which followed. My intention is to use either tool depending on the situation. William HarrisCanis lupis track.svgtalkCanis lupis track.svg 06:26, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

although i am on wikipedia not from long, but i wish to have this access as i have developed interest in fighting Vandalism, i am aware of wp:rollback well, I recently created a movie page Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali which was vandalised by few users, so i feel like if i have this access it would be much easier for me to detect and act on the vandalism, Thanks.

Hello, Hello! I've been using twinkle for who knows how long, consistently working on reverting vandalism, handling spam, and trying my best to greet new users appropriately. I don't work in mainspace as often as other editors (Altho I should have over 200 MS edits), but I have plenty of experience with the CSD process, and Twinkle's built-in pseudo-rollback tools. Hoping i'll be able to make use of these tools in the subset of the wiki I usually patrol (Everything that's not article space). MoonyTheDwarf (Braden N.) (talk) 20:53, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
