Hi guys. I am founder and administrator on Farthing Wood Wiki and somebody has uploaded 45 images which are completely irrelevant and inappropriate to the wiki. Is there a way to delete all 45 of these images in one go or will I have to go through each one individually? Thanks. Christophee (talk) 15:46, October 4, 2011 (UTC)

You can have a bot do it or if they are inappropriate, talk to VSTF and ask them to clean it up for you.--GodPray  15:49,10/4/2011 
They're not offensive or anything, but they are completely irrelevant. Sorry if this is a stupid question, but how do I get a bot to do it for me? Christophee (talk) 16:03, October 4, 2011 (UTC)
Bots are run by people so you need to find someone with a bot account. Only issue is you will need to give them admin powers so they can delete the pictures, unless its staff or someone with global powers. I can do it for you if you want but you will have to make my bot a temp admin on the wiki. Gracey91 16:51, October 4, 2011 (UTC)
Don't worry, I got VSTF to do it for me in the end. Thanks for all your help guys. Christophee (talk) 12:22, October 6, 2011 (UTC)
That was probably the best course, anyway. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 7 Oct 2011 5:07 PM Pacific
