On the Toontown Rewritten Wiki, there's a rollback that has changed his name once, doesn't like it anymore, and wants a new name again. Since he can't change the name of his account with 852 edits on it, he started a brand new account with 7 edits on it. He said the new account was going to be his new main account. He asked a bureaucrat to move his rollback status over to his new account (just before I got my bureaucrat/administrator rights), but when he got no response, he kinda gave up on it and moved to his old account again.
Has anything like this happened before? What should I tell him? Should I tell him to use his new account util his new account meets the requirements for becoming a rollback?
By the way, his old account name has a reference to a videogame named Undertale at the end. The new account replaces that end bit with some numbers so it'll supposedly age better.
I'm not sure I understand the Question, HearthStone333.
This is on the Toontown Rewritten Wiki. On Wikia, people with the "rollback" user right can revert edits with one click. It makes vandalism easier to clean up quickly. And the reason this user got a new account is because you can only rename an account once and he wanted a new username. Today I demoted his old account and promoted his new account.
Thanks for the suggestion, Ozank Cx, but the rollback functionality we already have works pretty well. And I'm not sure how to secure that script yet so vandals can't gain rollback powers. I might have to look into it though, just in case.

Rollback is hardly something people can abuse, it's just a more advanced version of a freely-available "Undo" button. It's not like you can enable that script site-wide, it's personal use only, so it doesn't matter if you try to "secure it from vandals".
The script that Ozank Cx linked is literally just a public version of the rollback user right. There is no difference at all between them.
