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.
  • When requesting rights that need support by the community (e.g. administrator) please go to Commons:Requests and votes!

Hi! I'm a regular editor of Wikimedia projects since 2008. I'm an administrator on Hungarian Wikipedia and in recent months I became very active on Commons too. Now I have more than 20000 edits here. I have already made many file requests and I'm planning to upload some Flickr sets to Commons and I think this will require a lot of renamings, but I would also be interested in other user's move requests. Thank you. Einstein2 (talk) 19:40, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
