  • Able to undo bad edits with one click.
  • Rollback edits are marked as minor edits.

For Good

Rollback can be used to revert bad edits made by a vandal, or misleading edits.

For Bad

However, Rollback in the wrong hands causes more bad than good.

  • It could easily be used by a vandal to go on sprees of mass reverting random contributions, also they may well go unnoticed for quite a length of time, and therefore cause damage much quicker than a normal user.
  • Rollback edits are marked as minor edits, meaning that it doesn't show up in all Recent Changes.
  • It can be used in edit warring, which is reverting someone else's edits in particular.
