The rollback extension allows a user to revert all of the edits by one user on a page, to the last edit by a different user. This feature should only be used in reverting edits that are clearly vandalism, and any possibly good faith edits should be reverted with the undo button. This is done so that the user reverting can explain why they are reverting the edit, for the benefit of both the original editor and any other users looking through the article's history, using rollback suggests that the user vandalised, hence no edit summary is needed.
A request can simply be filled out below. Asking for rollback can be done by anyone, however only users who have shown they are competent on the wiki will get the tools. Although it may take a while, a bureaucrat will visit the page and give out the tool.
The below is an ideal approach to asking for the tools:
Hi, I'm Ffums, I have lots of mainspace edits, do lots of anti-vandalism and think I could do much more with these tools. Ffums 13:37, May 34, 2183 (UTC)
Place all requests HERE.
Hello. I would like to request Rollback, here are a few reasons why:
- I watch the Recent changes all Night & day.
- The tools can help me undo multiple vandal edits,
- Which i have encountered before.
- I am a trusted member of the community.
- Almost all of my main space edits are undoes.
All in all i know what i am doing. And since i edit during the night mostly, when most are sleeping, it would make things easier for me.
Thanks for considering
I think it's time to request rollback, for I think it will be very handy. Most of my edits are undoes, and I think I will benefit more with these rollback rights. I usually check the recent changes and undo many bad edits/vandalism. If I could have these rights to rollback vandalism, I think it would be very helpful.
Thank you for taking your time to read my request. DarkMetroid567 16:26, January 9, 2012 (UTC)

I'm going to apply to get rollback because I feel that it will help me get the job done better in a more efficient and faster way than just going through the process of undoing the edit (or even multiple edits). There was one case in which rollback would've been very useful (there were multiple cases actually).

I would like to request for rollback rights. I spend most of my time in the recent changes and have undone many vandal edits and bad edits. I believe that with rollback rights I will be able to do more for this wiki. Thank you for your time.

I would like to put in a request for acquiring Rollback Rights. I have unfortunately haven't been editing the mainspace as much as I used to, but I am starting to edit on it again, and Rollback will certainly help me in that endeavor.

- Not done -- You need to edit the mainspace a bit more before I give you the tool. In addition, I see not one undo in your contributions; whilst you are a good editor, the fact that you've not used "undo" once shows me that you don't have a clear need for rollback at this time. -- sactage (talk) 20:12, February 7, 2012 (UTC)
I would like to request for rollback for acouple reasons, I actively patrol the Recent Changes night and mostly day time, I actively undo many Vandalisms, and many of the mainspace edits I have are from undoes of bad edits. Thank you for putting me for consideration.18:45, June 17, 2012 (UTC)

I would like to request rollback for the following reasons: I have undone a lot of vandal edits, I am making an editing comeback, and I check the Recent Changes a lot. I have been on this wiki for a long time and I have seen vandal edits ranging from page blanking to removing letters to messing up the entire template for the page, to replacing page content with random things. I usually undo vandalising edits unless the edit has already been undone. Thank you! Rampantlion513 Wanna Talk? What I have done 23:54, July 14, 2012 (UTC)

Hi, I am requesting rollback because I have 357 Edits, and around 25+ are undos. I check Wiki Activity hourly for around 2 months, undoing any bad edit, I also check the details of any edit done by an anonymous user. I have been on the wiki for half a year, and I do my best to support and edit the wiki at the best of my abilities. Thank you!08:27, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

Hello, I am requesting rollback as I have 129 edits within the Mainspace which most are purely reverts of vandalism or stuff of the sorts. I have had prior experience with Rollback as having it on RuneScape Wiki so I know when to revert and when to rollback. Thank you. 09:06, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

Hi, i would like to request for Rollback. I was inactive theese days because of the school, but when i have free time, i edit. Also, when i see some bad edits or some vandals spoiling the Wiki, i undo their ,,edits", also i have about 880 MS edits. Thanks for reading. -- SlavTalk 16:34, September 18, 2012 (UTC)
- Passed - remember that rollback is only used for vandalism, and bad edits should be undone, not rollbacked. 17:30, September 18, 2012 (UTC)
I would like to request for rollback as since the release of Black Ops II, I have undone many edits that are considered vandalism. Over my history I have also undone edits, and watch Recent Activity whenever I am online (Usually 3-10 PM EST). A majority of my mainspace edits are also undos.

I was told that this feature is much more useful than simply undoing vandalism (including getting edit conflicted by two vandals) and would like to request for this feature. My computer is almost always on the recent changes page and I have a large amount of undo edits. This would help a lot, and I definitely have the time to put it to use. 17:50, December 23, 2012 (UTC)
- Passed consistently good edits 18:41, December 23, 2012 (UTC)
I have seen quite a number of people who reverted edits by vandals and I myself have ran into a few, and unfortunately, those few usually edit multiple times, making undoing their vandalism quite a hassle. Even though most of my edits are just correcting or adding trivial info, I also undo vandalism when I see one, and if it has yet been undone by other users. Even though vandalism is somewhat uncommon in my eyes, for now, I feel this feature would be extremely useful for me in the near future. Thank you for reading.

I would like to request rollback. I check wiki activity hourly and have 250+ edits. With rollback I think I could undo vandilsm the moment it comes up. Even though I don't have many edits for vandalism, I ALWAYS check wiki activity and whatch some of my favourite pages (Zombies mode/story and others) constantly. Capt.

- Declined - Only about 100 of your edits are mainspace. I'd prefer to see you edit a bit presently. The "Undo" tool should suffice for any vandalism you come across for now. 13:14, October 16, 2013 (UTC)
I would like to reapply for rollback. I watch wiki activity hourly and have 450+ mainspace edits. I have been on the wiki for around 3 months now and I think I can use rollback effectively. I will undo vandalism with this tool when it needs to be used. Capt. Miller · talk 13:19, November 25, 2013 (UTC)
- Declined Between your last request and now, I have not seen you actually revert any vandalism. I see no real reason you require this user right that a basic "undo" command cannot achieve. 18:52, November 25, 2013 (UTC)
