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!

Former admin, have recently returned to active editing but was never approved for the checklist since my inactivity desysopping. Thanks! –Juliancolton | Talk 02:23, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
✓ Done It's worth to mention that Juliancolton Alternative also had been granted the right. Which, I believe, has no effect because this account has been renamed to Juliancolton Alternative~commonswiki. --jdx Re: 05:05, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you Jdx! I forgot that my alternative account had been approved. You can probably go ahead and remove that one, if you get the chance. :) –Juliancolton | Talk 14:01, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
OK, I have removed Juliancolton Alternative from the list. --jdx Re: 15:17, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
