Additional Administrative function.

Rollback is a feature of the MediaWiki software that runs Encyclopædia Dæmonica. It allows the last user's edits on a given page to be undone with a single mouse click. On Encyclopædia Dæmonica, rollback is used to undo problematic edits such as vandalism.

An editor with 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 as 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, subject to the approval of an administrator. A user who has been assigned this right explicitly is called a rollbacker.
