This is the page where users can request Administrator and Rollback rights and vote on other users who are requesting rights. Please read the following regulations and instructions completely before voting or placing a request.

In the event that an Administrator or Rollback is being unruly or breaking the rules, a request for their demotion may be placed below in the Requests for demotion header. The same voting rules apply for this as well. The vote totals required for their demotion remain the same as those for promotions as well.

Energy X (rollback)

So, hi! My name is Jakov (aka Energy X) and this is my request for rollback. As most of you know, I edit the anime articles - usually KidProdigy corrects grammar (Special thanks for him!). What I am really annoyed at is that vandals cause trouble - once I even saw one vandalising a template (!), so reverted it. The reason for the rollback is that I want to deal swiftly with reverting the vandalism. That and the fact I want to become an admin to deal with vandals on spot. In any case, I think I have written an essay of this request, so this is it.

Oppose Oppose: It appears that what you want is administrative rights. You even admitted that you were going to ask for admin straight out. This is a no. Perhaps when your motive isn't just to be an admin. – EnemyPeacemaker 23:55, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
Oppose Oppose: For the same reason that Jäzzi stated.   Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  18:45,2/10/2013    4,183  


Comment Comment: Well, it is not that I want admin tools. It is only the reason that I want to deal on vandals when nobody is around with the ability to do it. We need more admins and I can tell you already I know what the duties of the admin are - deleting unnecesary pages, blocking vandals and be helpful to others. If you are not convinced either way, then see this. Energy X 10:37, February 10, 2013 (UTC)
Comment Comment: We don't exactly need another admin, and we may get vandals when others aren't on, but the admins we have are capable of doing the job. – EnemyPeacemaker 13:38, February 10, 2013 (UTC)
Comment Comment: I never said that any admin here is uncapable, it is just that there aren't many active ons. Still, if you think that this site has got many (active) admins, why voting no on the rollback request as it is not an admin request? Energy X 16:51, February 10, 2013 (UTC)
Comment Comment: the only reason that you are asking for rollback now, is because you couldn't directly get to admin, which cuts you short from the power that you wanted.   Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  18:45,2/10/2013    4,183  
Comment Comment: I might have used the wrong words in the user request, but I think we all miss the point here - to enable for me to deal more swiftly with vandals. Energy X 19:32, February 10, 2013 (UTC)
Comment Comment: Undo works fine. – EnemyPeacemaker 20:34, February 10, 2013 (UTC)
Comment Comment: Maybe so, but takes certainly more time then pressing one button. Energy X 20:42, February 10, 2013 (UTC)
