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!



I would like to request to use Flickr2Commons toll, but the system tells that i'm not a authorised user Thank you. AmandaLemosNeuroMat (talk) 18:06, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

AutoWikiBrowser access[edit]


Initially I would like to be able conveniently to update a quantity of illustration file descriptions, but later perhaps also category page text and gallery text. Essentially this would be for fungus illustrations, fungus species categories and fungus gallery pages (please see my recent manual contributions; it would help me to accelerate some of this work). Thank you. Strobilomyces (talk) 13:25, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

To be able to undo non-constructive edits with ease. Thank you. Fenikals (talk) 16:04, 17 August 2017 (UTC)


I have been active on Commons for several years and have ~7000 edits under my belt. I'm also a rollbacker on enwiki and I understand what is and is not vandalism. Thank you. Sportsguy17 00:31, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

B dash[edit]

I have been ion commons for over 3 years, and I am a rollbacker on zhwiki. I can distinguish if the edits are vandalism or not. Thank you. B dash (talk) 02:42, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question per COM:Rollback, it's "for users who need the tool"... looking over your last thousand or so edits, I can see a few uses of the "undo" function, but could you clarify why you think you need it? Note that I'm not necessarily opposing that you get the rights, I just don't really see the need (most of the time) on Commons. In fact, I operate with rollback artificially turned off most of the time. Storkk (talk) 13:39, 17 August 2017 (UTC)

Fight vandalism will be a priority for sure. It would be very helpful for my upcoming project Commons Orientation Workshop and also for the other ongoing projects such as "Nabodebalay" and "The Netherlands and the world/Chinsurah" Thank you so much in advance. - IndrajitDas 14:06, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question I've looked at the last couple thousand of your edits, and was unable to find any instances where you undid an edit (though I just searched for the automated edit summary and may have missed them if you changed the summary)... could you please spell out in more detail how Rollback would help you? Storkk (talk) 14:39, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
@Storkk:Thank you so much for asking me. You are right because you missed nothing as I didn't changed my summery. Till date, I have tried to exercise my rights honestly, which was given to me. Now I want to fight against vandalism for sure. Presently, I am associated with three projects. Part of one recent upcoming project will be on uploading session by the new users. There could be a situation, where need to be undone the destructive works. If you have any further queries, Please feel free to ask me. Thank you. - IndrajitDas 17:33, 17 August 2017 (UTC)

I sometimes encounter files with bad or useless names, and it would be helpful to be able to correct these myself. Thank you. Guanaco (talk) 14:55, 6 August 2017 (UTC)

NatigKrolik 3[edit]

Request for the rights of Filemover. I have done several successful rename request. I hope to contribute the Commons. NatigKrolik (talk) 12:17, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
You were told multiple times to stop requesting this right for a month. As this was on July 21, I suggest a block of this account for at least one week. --Didym (talk) 12:38, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
Stop. NatigKrolik (talk) 13:05, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
@NatigKrolik: That post by Didym was directly in response to your action, requesting a third time. Once you stop requesting so frequently, responses should stop.   — Jeff G. ツ 13:12, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
 Not done and blocked per warning on users talkpage. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:07, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

A veces encuentro archivos con nombres inapropiados o no muy descriptivos, y sería útil poder corregirlos yo mismo. Gracias. Thank you. Jcfidy (talk) 06:17, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

I've made over 4000 edits on Commons, of which about 500 have been criterion-2 rename requests for files that have the default filename from Geograph Britain and Ireland. There are about 1000 more files to rename, and I think some existing filemovers may be getting fed up with all my requests. Thank you. bjh21 (talk) 16:14, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
