User:Masum Ibn Musa

I have decent experience of reverting vandalism and familiar with all of rule. I have also this right on Bengali Wikipedia. For more helpful to contributing reverting vandalism, praying for this right  Masum Ibn Musa  Conversation 14:06, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Pictogram voting info.svg Administrator note: @Masum Ibn Musa: You do appear to meet the basic qualifications for this. However, when reviewing these requests I like to take a look at recent threads on the user's talk page as well. Your user talk page is using some extremely obnoxious formatting to force all comments into a font that is difficult to read and makes my eyes hurt, so I am leaving this request unreviewed for now.

@Beeblebrox: Most of time i'm working with new page patrolling and welcoming new editor. I have been reverting vandalism about last 1 year. Plz re-review this.  Masum Ibn Musa  Conversation 05:50, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
I didn't deny your request, I just refuse to review it when you have a talk page that is so hard to read. Perhaps some other admin with more patience and/or tolerance for eye strain will come along and review it. Beeblebrox (talk) 07:12, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Now that the talk page is readable, I don't see any red flag issues and you have experience in the area. Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 04:15, 23 June 2015 (UTC)


I have been editing articles on wikipedia and I'm a wikipedian since 6 years. I have contributed in various categories such as video games, academic institutions, entertainment, etc. I am also involved in several WikiProjects. The sections I usually work on include illustrative decictions on the subjects mentioned, that include artworks, box arts, logos, emblems, etc. As these are likely to be vandalized at a higjer rate, I would like to recieve rollback rights as it helps to get rid of vandalism on these pages.

X mark.svg Not done. Please ask again when you have significantly more experience. When you have 200 edits to mainspace you can enroll at the WP:CVUA to learn more about reverting vandalism. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 12:21, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
User now has 200 edits, and I see no risk in granting this minor userright. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 12:59, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
May I be granted with this privilage now? AkshayAnand (talk) 10:33, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

User:Zwerg Nase

I edit a lot of Formula One articles, where for the last few weeks and months, a lot of vandalism has been taken place (some even with racist content). I believe rollback right would help me to help the project in keeping things in order. Zwerg Nase (talk) 09:41, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
I don't see much reversion of vandalism, and no evidence of warning users. But I have no reason to think you would abuse the tool. Yes check.svg Done — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 11:53, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you! Revisions were often done by other users, but I feel confident that with me being able to help more, it can be done better and swifter :) Zwerg Nase (talk) 12:04, 24 June 2015 (UTC)


I generally create new articles but as soon as the articles are created, a lot of unregistered users add a lot of information that is either from unreliable sources or doesn't have any source at all. It becomes very difficult to maintain the quality of the articles in that case. Hence, I request that this permission be granted to me so that I can ensure that whatever I am working on meets Wikipedia policies and guidelines. Thanks. Vishal14K | Talk 13:00, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
This is not a good use of rollback. Those kinds of reversions require decent edit summaries, which rollback cannot do. Please continue to use the "undo" button and append an explanation to the edit summary. Regards — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 11:55, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done You have a good number of mainspace edits, but they are very sparse. The last bit of editing that may be of counter vandalism efforts was in February of 2013. Please review Wikipedia:Rollback to find out what it is for, and if you'd like to learn more you can consider enrolling in the training program. MusikAnimal talk 21:40, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

User:Some Gadget Geek

Since my previous request I have properly learned to distinguish IP addresses (both IPv4 and IPv6) from standard usernames and am treating them as they should be treated, not as username violations as I did previously. I have not made any further blatant WP:UAA requests, and hence I believe I am prepared to use the rollback tool properly. <<< SOME GADGET GEEK >>> (talk) 16:24, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Automated comment This user has had 1 request for rollback declined in the past 90 days ([1]). MusikBot talk 16:30, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done You appear to have yourself introduced unconstructive edits as soon as a month ago at Yue. Understand this is absolutely unacceptable and considering rollback is intended to revert these types of edits, we naturally cannot trust you with the tool. I will say your recent edits however are helpful contributions, and with time you may be granted rollback if you become active in counter-vandalism efforts, demonstrating you can distinguish vandalism from good-faith edits. Please review Wikipedia:Rollback for more information on what it is for, and if you decide you want to get involved I would recommend enrolling in the counter-vandalism training program before requesting again.

I want to have the rollback right so I can easily revert vandalism. I've been editing Wikipedia, especially Multi sport event related articles. People make some of incorrect edits and it's very time consuming to go through each edit and revert it. I'll use it only for it's purpose and help make Wikipedia better.  Yogwi21  talk  07:15, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Beeblebrox (talk) 19:47, 28 June 2015 (UTC)


I am not even a month old in Wikipedia and I've already made over 300 edits. I am willing to claim this right because I believe I can fight more such vandalistic edits. I want to protect the underrated pages of wikipedia which are often not revised by experienced user. Thank for reading. RealmmbTalk Realmmb 16:00, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol declined.svg Denied, you seem to be editing from mobile most of the time and rollback isn't well-supported from the mobile platform. Additionally, a number of your articles have been nominated for deletion and you have inappropriately or improperly listed other articles for deletion. Together, this leads me to conclude that I do not have confidence you understand Wikipedia policies and processes sufficiently enough to use the rollback permission for the intended purpose.

User:FOX 52

I've been editing since 2012 with 4,200 edits under my belt, and have worked on my share good and bad faith edits - I'm quite familiar with guidelines as well FOX 52 (talk) 01:13, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Nakon 01:14, 1 July 2015 (UTC)


A quicker way to revert blatant vandalism, or my own personal edits that need to be undone, would be useful. I'm reminded of this particular edit [2] where rollback would have been particularly useful. I clearly understand the guidelines about the use of rollback, and I'm reasonably confident in my ability to differentiate good faith edits and pure vandalism. I've gotten into the habit of regularly placing warnings/notifications after reverting unscruplulous changes and rejecting pending changes to articles, which I think in general would be a good practice after each use of rollback (barring times when I would rollback my own personal edits of course).Godsy(TALKCONT) 06:03, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
