Rollbackers
Rollbackers can quickly revert all edits made by the last user who edited a particular page.

Rollbackers have the ability to quickly roll back the edits of the last user who edited a particular page. This is particularly helpful to revert vandalism on a certain page. Non-rollbackers may also use Twinkle for pseudo-rollbacker abilities.

Appointment and Revocation[edit source]

Rollbackers are appointed by administrators at their discretion. Users may request the right at the Administrators' noticeboard. Likewise, rollbackers may have their rights revoked at the discretion of an administrator.

There is no set list of criteria that users must fulfill to be appointed to rollbacker or have the right revoked. Each administrator has their own criteria for appointing or revoking a rollbacker's flag though revocation is rare if the right is used correctly.

Usage[edit source]

Rollback is primarily used to combat spam and vandalism. When such are detected, rollbackers can quickly revert all edits made by a certain user on the page. A button labeled "Rollback" appears on the latest revision of pages and when clicked, reverts all edits made by the latest contributor.

Note that you can only rollback the edits of the latest contributor to a page to the last revision not made by them. If you wish to revert multiple revisions made by multiple editors, you will need to do that manually.
