This was brought up as a proposal, but all policies are under suspension until the convention is over. Plus, user rights reviews will concern bylaws, which will not be discussed under proposals. Still, I saw the issue as important enough to discuss.
Should rollbacks be included in the scheduled user rights reviews (which user to be referred to as administrator reviews, but are now more inclusive as far as the title), whether they are 2, 3, or 4 times per year, depending on the outcome? — AMK152 (Wall • Contrib) 15:52, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
After thinking about it, I would support. Even though rollback is appointed, a scheduled user rights review would justify whether or not the person should have been appointed. — AMK152 (Wall • Contrib) 16:11, January 3, 2018 (UTC)
Rollbacks are so small. Rollbacks are almost like regular users. The only advantage they have is to rollback edits without it appearing in the wiki activity. If you check "all activity", you will see that a revert has been made. Rollbacks don't need to be reviewed as the revert button is almost like an undo revision button. It's completely unnecessary imo. If you want to discuss whether a rollback should stay as rollback, maybe just include rollbacks in user rights reviews. They don't need to be in administration reviews. Or perhaps, the admins can vote on demoting a rollback if a rollback shall be demoted. So I oppose the idea. SB29WallContribsE-MailPredated
