The Request for Rollback Rights process is comprised of 4 distinct steps which will be outlined in this article. Every request must go through these steps.

- This step begins the process and shows the user's commitment to begin the process.
Nominee's second comes forward
- A Second must step forward explaining why they support the nomination.
- A Second must have been a member of the Wiki for 3 months, with consistent edits in the prior months and may not possess sysop rights.
- This step is intended to illustrate that the Nominee possess initiative and community Support.
- The current sysops hold a vote.
- In the case of a tie vote amongst the sysops, rollback users are asked to join the vote. In cases where no rollback users vote within 1 week, the tie ends with the RfR nomination being unsuccessful. Rollback Users are never eligible to vote in their own RfRs.
- This vote indicates support of the current sysops and is intended to establish a consensus amongst people with experience with the tools and rights being given out before bringing the vote before those without experience with these tools.
