Current requests for rollback[change source]

User:N1TH Music[change source]

I may not have been editing here fore long however I have been very active and have done over 600 edits. Many of my changes involve reviwing new pages and small stubs so I think rollback rights would be very useful for me. I have never vandalised or acted in bad faith and of all the 30+ articles I've created only one has been deleted so I believe I'm a competent editor who can be trusted with these rights. My changes have been respected and positively received and I haven't caused any issues or been rude ever. In short I see a use for myself having rollback rights and I believe I deserve it.

@N1TH Music: You have done a lot of great work here indeed, but looking in your contributions, you only have two undos that are reverting vandalism. While both undos are fine, I would expect quite a few more undos before giving rollback out, so I'm going to mark this as X mark.svg Not done for now. Please don't let this discourage you and keep up the good work :) --Ferien (talk) 19:33, 11 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ferien Alright then, I thought lack of undoes may be the only reason I could be denied and I was, eactly how many should I do before we can consider it? N1TH Music (talk) 20:06, 11 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There's no set exact number, but I think 40-50 undos is a reasonable amount as you have a good amount of experience in other areas. --Ferien (talk) 21:26, 11 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ferien Wait really 50? I know I haven't done many undoes but I was hoping I could be trusted with rights just in case I come across a time I need it even though it's not in my typical line of work. N1TH Music (talk) 15:02, 14 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
N1TH Music, Wikipedia:Rollback feature#Getting rollback says You should have made a lot of changes, with experience in anti-vandalism work. For rollback, you need the experience in anti-vandalism work to show you know when/when not to use it. --Ferien (talk) 17:16, 14 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ferien Alright well one thing I have got experience in is Partolling but I can't find where to request it on Wikipedia:Requests for Permissions how do I do that? N1TH Music (talk) 17:18, 14 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
N1TH Music, you can request patroller at Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Patroller --Ferien (talk) 17:19, 14 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have some reasonable undo(s) in my recent contribution. And having my rollback ability, it will help me to revert multiple edits which are either vandalism/unconstructive/other reasons. DMK-C5 (talk) 14:56, 15 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
 Done I've checked some of your undos and they seem to be ok. I don't think there's any problem in giving you rollback. Good luck! :) --Ferien (talk) 14:02, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@DMK-C5: Just remember that rollback is only for vandalism, not for "unconstructive/other reasons". -- Auntof6 (talk) 15:25, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sir, I will keep that in my mind. DMK-C5 (talk) 15:44, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have a lot of vandalism reverting experience and I really think that rollback will help me in the future with quickly reverting vandalism. SoyokoAnis - talk 16:33, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Auntof6 It's been almost 2 weeks, and I wanted to make sure my request was being seen. SoyokoAnis - talk 00:49, 4 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • To start, a question. Why do you think the rollback tool would help your anti-vandalism efforts? I'll be honest, the above comment is the second time you've pinged an admin for this request, and it feels a little like shopping around for an admin that will just hurry up and approve the request. That sort of thinking doesn't make me more likely to grant any right, especially rollback, where taking the extra time to review an edit could be the difference between accidentally reverting a good faith edit or not. Quickly looking through your contributions, I don't see any reverts that concern me, but I think I'd like to hear in your own words how you think this tool will help. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 01:28, 4 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
