If you request the rollback-right, please read the how-to first.

Admins and anyone with global rollback don't need to request rollback.

How to make a request

  1. First make sure you clicked the correct edit-link and you are actually requesting the right you want.
  2. Copy the following and append it to the text-area:
    {{subst:rfr|{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}|2=reason}} Thank you. ~~~~
  3. Replace reason with a rationale based on the rollback guideline, renaming guideline or the patroller guideline
  4. Press Save page


  • Please check back periodically so you can respond to any queries.
  • If your request has remained unanswered for several days, consider personally asking an administrator.
  • Administrators, please welcome users granted a new right with an appropriate message.

Highway Route Marker Bot[edit]

I run a bot that does updates to highway route signs. Occasionally the signs change to a brand new format. The old signs have value so I do not just want to overwrite them. I want the new signs to have the same name as the old signs as to not break templates. An example that I want to do soon is Category:Alberta Highway shields which need to be updated to File:Alberta wordmark 2009.svg Thank you. Svgalbertian (talk) 13:01, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
{{done}} I think commonsense applies here - if any admin opposes, feel free to revert my action and ask botmaster to open new BRFA. — Revi 13:06, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
Self-reverted, as I (afterward) thought this may require new BRFA. Please file a new BRFA for filemove task. — Revi 15:26, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
Hmmm, not sure how to do that. When I go to Commons:BRFA and make a request, it takes me to Commons:Bots/Requests/Highway Route Marker Bot which is locked. Suggestions? --Svgalbertian (talk) 16:35, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
You need to create a new request. --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:22, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
Okay, done: Commons:Bots/Requests/Highway Route Marker Bot (2). Thanks for your help. --Svgalbertian (talk) 18:09, 22 November 2014 (UTC)


I'd like to perform 576 renames stated on Commons:Batch uploading/Wigman/Renames, the script for this is ready. The current file names are the archive Id's of the images, I will add the image description (or a shortened version) and the archive/photographer name to the titles. I only need the right on a temporary basis. Much apriciated. Basvb (talk) 15:48, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
✓ Done. Trijnsteltalk 16:20, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
