I would like to request rollback rights, I have been on Wikipedia for a while and most of my time is spent undoing vandalism and ensuring any bad faith edits are removed as quickly as possible. I am currently using Twinkle and RedWarn and would like to also use Huggle. I feel having Rollback rights would allow me to use my time fighting vandalism more efficiently. I have read through and familiarized myself with policies such as WP:NOTVANDAL, WP:MOS and WP:FIVEPILLARS. Tommi1986 let's talk! 15:09, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

Hi! I have ≥ 200 mainspace edits and I am requesting rollback permission to use Huggle. Due to my anti-vandalism work in the German Wikipedia (5000+ edits) I am already experienced in working with Huggle. Best regards from Hamburg, Germany, Morneo06 (talk) 23:09, 5 April 2021 (UTC)
 Done looks fine despite low edit count. Anarchyte (talkwork) 13:17, 13 April 2021 (UTC)


Hi! I enjoy using Twinkle to revert vandalism (I have nearly a thousand edits) and I have been looking into Huggle, which requires rollback rights. Thank you for your consideration. xRENEGADEx (talk | contribs) 00:58, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
@XRENEGADEx: By the way, have you considered installing RedWarn yet? Once you do, it's hard to go back to twinkle. SHB2000 (talk) 06:25, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
@SHB2000:I have not, but I'll check it out! xRENEGADEx (talk | contribs) 18:07, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
It'll make your life so much easier by using WP:Redwarn. SHB2000 (talk) 22:51, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Hello there, I've been anti-vandalism semi-active and putting warnings on their talk user pages. I have 729 contributions, I'm an extended-confirmed user, I use RedWarn to revert vandalism in general, and I would respectfully request rollback rights. I'd also like to use the Huggle or SWViewer software, which requires rollback permissions. Thank you incredibly much. Jamesluiz102 (talk) 12:09, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

Hello, I've been editing on Wikipedia for a quite good period now, and as of this moment, I have made 3,561 edits. I have been using Twinkle to revert vandalism and I would also want to use other tools that require rollback permissions. I'm familiar with rules and policies, and the rollback permission would help me a lot while editing. Thanks, Vacant0 (talk) 22:06, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
@Vacant0: By the way, have you installed RedWarn yet? It doesn't require rollback rights and once you've installed redwarn, it's hard to go back. SHB2000 (talk) 00:15, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
I haven't but I'll give it a try, thanks! Vacant0 (talk) 14:56, 13 April 2021 (UTC)


I've been here a long time and am familiar with the relevant policies. Wanted to check out Huggle. Thanks. – SD0001 (talk) 02:33, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
Granted that only a RB'er can make the most out of Huggle, one does not need to be a RB'er to start using it. NotReallySoroka (talk) 03:11, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
 Done – I believe that a Template editor can be trusted with rollback. EdJohnston (talk) 03:43, 14 April 2021 (UTC)


I would like to have Rollback rights to fight vandalism because it would make it easier and faster for me. Sometimes the option to rollback all edits comes out in the user page of the user doing the vandalism but I see that there is another option too. Thank you. Stay safe.

I have been reverting vandalism on Wikipedia recently, and am also rather experienced with reverting. I would like to use Huggle or igloo as those are rollback-only. I have over 3000 edits to Wikipedia, of which quite a few are reverting vandalism. 🪐Kepler-1229b | talk | contribs🪐 01:49, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

Hello. I am interested in doing counter-vandalism work using Huggle. I have experience reverting and templating from my work in pending changes (around 400 accepts, so probably a similar number of reverts). If you inspect my undos, I don't think you'll find any concerns. I really like edit summaries and almost always use them. I'll be careful not to rollback non-vandalism edits. Thank you for your consideration. –Novem Linguae (talk) 17:22, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
