I have on a few occasions wanted to rollback other people's posts after suggested edits have been approved when they shouldn't have. For example; two hours ago I edited the title of a question just seconds after coleopterist had made all kinds of edits to it, and, because it was approved, all edits to the actual question was overwritten. If I could, I'd rollback to coleopterist's version.

When do you get to rollback other people's posts? Or, is that kind of action restricted to moderators?

Rollback is part of the 'edit questions and answers' privilege - which you can gain with 1,000 reputation on this beta site. You are only 21 points away from this already.

I think the logic is that if you can be trusted to make unreviewed edits, you can be trusted to roll back revisions.

    "You are only 21 points away from this already." - Oh, much less to review then. ;)
