I'm putting this here because I don't know how feasible this thing is. So, what I want to ask if it is possible to grant some "veteran and reliable" members the quick reversion power, which I think only admins have presently. This would help us dealing with vandalism more quickly even if we are unable to ban him. The current reversion process is long anyway. By the time someone without this power reverts a vandalism, another two gets added because adding stuff is easier than reverting. - TopAce 13:56, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

  • This isn't easily done: it would require changes to the MediaWiki code which the Wikia developers would have to implement. Besides, as jSarek said in this old CT thread, if we can trust a user with one admin power, we should be able to trust him or her with all of them and put them on RfA. —Silly Dan (talk) 15:35, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
    • I thought the idea was for the user to first warn the admin, so they would cut off the vandal by blocking them, and then handle vandalism. I would say the real issue is not quick reversion, but quick admin response to minimize any damage to our site. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 16:11, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
