Rollback

Rollback is a component of the MediaWiki software that runs Everything Food & Drink. It allows the last user's edits to a given page to be undone with a single mouse click. On Everything Food & Drink, rollback is used to undo problematic edits such as vandalism.

A user who has rollback rights sees a rollback button next to relevant revisions on their watchlist, in page histories and in certain other places. A single click on this button reverses the edit in question, as well any other consecutive preceding edits made by the same user.

Rollback is available to all Administrators and can be given to other users on request. Currently, 11 administrators and 0 other users have rollback.

Standard rollback may only be used in certain situations – editors who misuse standard rollback (for example, by using it to reverse good-faith edits in situations where an explanatory edit summary would normally be expected) may have their rollback rights removed.
