User:GeorgeBarnick[change | edit source]

I haven't been active much until the past day or so, but I look to continue being more active on Simple English Wikipedia. I have experience in countervandalism globally on Wikimedia (and other networks), am a member of SWMT, have rollback rights on enwp (verify) and have administrator rights on MediaWiki.org (verify). I keep an eye on this wiki's Special:RecentChanges and in #cvn-simplewikis, therefore I will likely be able to see vandalism quickly, and having rollback rights will make my countervandalism efforts on Simple English Wikipedia faster and easier. --GeorgeBarnick (talk) 07:13, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
Not yet, but welcome to this Wiki. I'd rather see you doing anti-vandalism work for a while before we give you this right, so we can see that you are used to the way we do things. I've seen new editors here undo changes as vandalism when the change had actually been made in accordance with some of our standard procedures for making things here simple. With the experience you have, I'm sure you'll catch on quickly, but for me it's a little soon to give you this right. Let me know if you have any questions! --Auntof6 (talk) 03:17, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

I've been pretty active in reverting vandalism here. And I have rollback on the English Wikipedia. JV Smithy (talk) 02:54, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
As I don't see problems in his reverts, I'm inclined to grant this request.  On hold for sometime to see whether another user objects. --Glaisher [talk] 09:42, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
 Done Has rollback on en so automatically qualifies. -DJSasso (talk) 13:33, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

I came here (on this page) almost one year ago and the admins said to come back later. Now I think I am ready as I have done a lot of reverts since then, even if I was inactive for 1 or 2 months I came back active and hopefully will still be a lot active but if not I will still come on this Wiki once or twice a week to help reverting vandalism. I have experience in reverting vandalism with Twinkle but rollback will help me do it faster and more efficiently (if I am not sure I will use TWINKLE).

I also add that from now on I will be more careful when reverting with any tools. If I am not sure I will leave it to other users. --Reception123/Receptie123 (talk) 04:43, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done User has done some good reverting, but is also still doing things that he/she should be leaving to admins. User also doesn't show good understanding of policies and guidelines. Although those things aren't directly related to reverting, they make me uncomfortable with the idea of giving any rights to this user. I'd like to point out that a person can be sure of something, but still be wrong: it is things the user would be incorrectly sure of that concern me. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:31, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
Ok. I understand. I will come here later or even next year. Reception123/Receptie123 (talk) 13:12, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
