Current requests for rollbackEdit


It has been nearly a month since my last request, and I would like to request this right again. I would use the right to help fight off the long-term abusers that attack this wiki, and just also to combat the ordinary vandals. I understand that I may not be considered trustworthy due to my socking on enwiki, but I promise that I will be trustworthy with this right. I understand that if I abuse this right, it will be removed. I promise to only use this right in cases of clear vandalism; I will use Twinkle for everything else.

Considering SithJarJar's history on enwiki, he faces a mountain to climb to earn trust with this community. His conduct on that wiki was problematic. However, this user's conduct on our project has been reliable, dependable, trustworthy, and they have so far kept their promise to be an upstanding member of the community. I feel that the correct option for the community in this case is to help them climb that mountain. I'm not awarding this user right as I'd like for other sysops to share their thoughts. That being said, I'll support this user's request for rollback and monitor their use of it, should it be awarded. Operator873talkconnect 18:40, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
Support per Operator 873. This is what we want people who've had socking issues to do. Darkfrog24 (talk) 18:49, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
@SithJarJar666: Question. Looking through your last 5 undo, which of them would you have used rollback for? And, do you intend to use a script that would allow adding a custom summary? The edits I'm asking about are #1, #2, #3, #4, and #5. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 19:34, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Well, #1 and #2 might have needed an explanation, as it is not obvious vandalism. #5 was one of my own edits; I would not have rolled back that, as it may have needed an explanation. #3 was an LTA known as The Suix; definitely rollback. #4 may have been rollbackable, but I can always use Twinkle if I am not sure. Regards, --sithjarjar666 (my contribs | talk to me | email me | see my enwiki profile) 19:44, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
So you would have only used it for #4? --DannyS712 (talk) 19:46, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Yes. If I am unsure about an edit, I will use Twinkle and an edit summary. I will only use rollback for LTAs and obvious vandalism. --sithjarjar666 (my contribs | talk to me | email me | see my enwiki profile) 19:49, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
Okay, I'm inclined to grant the rights temporarily and see how it goes. Leaving open for other admins' comments for a bit --DannyS712 (talk) 02:35, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
