Proposal talk:Give Rollbackers some blocking rights

I would say that when I personally assigned rollback rights to people, I never had in mind that they would have the block button. There are people that I trust to rollback that I would not trust with the block button. I personally would want some sort of confirmation process first, not a single administrators' discretion. -- Philippe 00:40, 22 October 2009 (UTC)Reply

Moreover, if you trust a user enough to let him block users, please make him a sysop. --Nemo 19:29, 22 October 2009 (UTC)Reply
What I am saying is that there are people who don't have time to be a sysop, but are still making quality edits, and have been entrusted with rollback rights. If you let them revert vandalism with the click of a button, and let them give warnings to IPs, why not let them block them? --15lsoucy 23:25, 5 November 2009 (UTC)Reply
Wouldn't it be better just to make sure that there's a working, ideally automated mechanism for the rollbackers to complain to admins and get instant service? And if there's not enough admins for that, make more? After all, this proposal still involves every temporary block getting reviewed by an admin - just do it right the first time!
