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!

Hello, I'm frequently recategorizing images, and I guess AWB will be making the task less tedious (even though I always double check before triggering any task, like with HotCat). Thank you. LeZibou (talk) 21:12, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

I come across a great many file names with very ambiguous/misleading names or errors in naming, and rather than go through the time-consuming process of rename requests (as I have just done with a number of dress files simply named Number45, Number32, Number15, etc...), it would be handy to be able to just do the rename/move as I see them. Thank you. Mabalu (talk) 10:35, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
