Add rollbacker role on Rusyn (rue) Wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublicRequest

Description

If possible, please add a rollbackers role to rue.wikipedia. This is a small project yet we have had a long-term vandalism issue (anonymous, varied IP addresses). Rollback is available to me as an administrator but since vandalism happens on a daily basis, other editors are often the first to react with manual reverts. Currently I only have one user in mind as a potential rollbacker - they are highly active and could use a more time efficient process.

@Engelseziekte, In my opinion, it's always a good idea to discuss locally the requirement for users to be eligible to request this kind of user rights.

I'd really like if your community went forward and granted sysop rights to trusted users, because it can boost small wiki development. However, given rollbacker is pretty standard group, I'm going to enable it anyway.
