I have been reverting vandalism from Wikipedia lately, and have found that with Rollback it makes undoing vandalism from Wikipedia easier for me to do and faster for me to focus on other pages to undo on. TurboSonic (talk) 18:28, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Not done Your in the low end, as far as mainspace edits, of where we would seriously consider such a request, but I can't help but notice that over half of your mainspace edits are from the last 24 hours. We generally like to see a good track record over a much longer period of time of proper vandal fighting. I would suggest you use WP:TWINKLE for a while before requesting this again.

I occasionally stumble on articles where it would be convenient to rollback rather than revert each edit manually. I am familiar with Wikipedia guidelines and believe i can differentiate between vandalism and good edits. I hope to be of help to the community with this right.

I think this would be a helpful feature to have at my disposal and I believe I meet the qualifications. I have 1350-ish edits.-EDG 543 (talk) 18:52, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

I have been using Twinkle for a couple of years to manage occasional vandalism when I come across it, which includes some limited Rollback-like functions. It would be more efficient to have official Rollback permission. I am not sure what information I can give you to help in your deliberations: I have over 20,000 mainspace edits over more than 5 years, never been blocked, used several tools with no problems (Twinkle, AWB, Refill). If there is anything you want to know, please ask. Gronk Oz (talk) 13:23, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
Not done Yes, you do have over 20k mainspace edits, but 66% of your edits are automated, and only 0.6% or 148 edits are reverts. When I your reverting I don't see any track record where I can establish you've been fighting vandalism. Also most of your recent twinkle edits are page tagging, which is not vandalism reverting, so I'm struggling to find the track record. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 22:20, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for taking the time to explain your reasons. Smile.gif --Gronk Oz (talk) 14:30, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
