Description listcaster 2007-10-20 03:09:57 UTC
As an en.wiki admin, I would like to see a feature that allows admins to rollback all edits of a user, or all edits of a user in the past X hours, or the last X edits of a user.  It should also permit us to leave a common edit summary for all of the rollback edits.

We often see subtle vandalism-only accounts that manage to vandalize many pages before being detected.  These edits have to be rolled back one at a time, and we have to use "undo" if we want to leave an edit summary.

Also, I have been in communication with a Commons admin who declined approximately 100 speedy deletion requests by one user.  If he had this feature, he could have just rolled back the user's last 100 edits with the summary "declining speedy deletion, please list at COM:DEL".

Thanks.

Although this is not a software fix, you can add this script to your monobook to easily do everything you have asked for in a software change: <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Voice_of_All/Useful#Admin_rollback.2Fdeletion_tools_and_backlog_bar_.28Requires_Addtab.29>

This is not only relevant to enwp or commons, But almost to all wikis.

Would it be possible to add the option of deleting instead of reverting (i.e. as tick box?

Not a Wikimedia bug, tweaking product etc.

Also: there's a maintenance script for this, but that doesn't really help people in userland.

Note that with the API rollback module in place (for quite some time now), this can easily be done with a gadget. In fact, I'd be surprised if gadgets like Twinkle didn't already provide this functionality.

For mass deleting, there is mw:Extension:Nuke, currently enabled on all WMF sites.

As of right now, there doesn't appear to be any gadget that does this. Twinkle doesn't.
