Hello ladies and gentlemen, ScrewYouDinkleberg talking! Dad's worst enemy decided to make this page, explaining why he deserves to be a rollbacker.
First of all, let's see the requirements:
1)Must have been active on the wiki for two months.
I am active since the day I joined the wiki, May 18th. Today is July 28th, if I'm not wrong.
2)Must have 200 article edits or 25 cases where you have undone vandalism.
Well, I don't have at least 200 edits on articles. However, I'm almost there, and if there's a case of vandalism, I learned by myself how to remove it.
3)Must know the wiki's naming conventions
I do know. The, for, that, an, a, etc. are written in lowercase, unless it's the first word from the title. Normal words have their first letter capitalized.
Now, outside the requirements.
I think I should be a rollbacker because I'm often active on the forums and on the overall website, including the afternoon, when I can notice not many admins are used to be active. By being a rollbacker, I can at least help them more efficiently.
You might think "Hey, but what if you get the rights and then later ragequit because of a random Emilio?".
Well, I'm pretty sure I'll be active on this wiki for a very long time, even when more important stuff on life knocks my door. Also, I'm not really into getting mad on new users. I was a noob like them before, and so everyone was once, so I think it's not fair criticizing them, unless they're harming the site and the community.
And now, other might think "For Al Chapé's sake, why don't you actually edit something? I only see you placing "Marked for Review" and "Delete Now" categories!".
Well, when I mark something for review, I try to review it, but most of the times someone does that faster than me, and well, when I put something to be deleted, it's pretty obvious why. Notice that I only put something to delete when the user didn't fix the formatting, made a wall of text or the story is abysmal.
By the way, I have an unique ability to understand Portuguese, allowing me to correct pastas written in this language, if needed.
So, I think that's pretty much it. Let's see how everything goes. Let's just hope Marconi doesn't play his mamba again, and I won't be listening to the radio.

Support - You don't fully meet the edit count, but it's clear from your activity in both the Writer's Workshop and article edits that you've made some great contributions to the site. I think you're ready for it. A picture is worth a thousand words, but I'd rather write a thousand-word story. (talk) 22:51, July 28, 2014 (UTC) CassistRabbit
Support - While he does not fully meet the edit requirements, he has been putting in a lot of work in the writer's workshop, editing in the M4R category (which is always nice), and quality checking and tagging problematic stories in M4R. I think he'd make a good edition to the rollback crew and pick up some of the slack caused by ResidentDeVir, Wolfenmaus, CreepyMoreFedora, and Indefinitesilence's absence. Side note: Jesus we have a lot of inactive roll backers. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 02:48, July 29, 2014 (UTC)
Support - It can't hurt having another rollbacker around who makes positive contributions. I just hope this one stays active. As Emp pointed out, we have a lot of inactive ones. Mystreve (talk) 12:19, July 29, 2014 (UTC)
