I am trying to remove pages (all 344 of then plus templates) that are a result of me importing too much at one time, is there a way to revert my wiki to its original empty state, and start over, and a little more careful this time. —This unsigned comment is by JLNicholsonII (wallcontribs) .

You can use a bot to do it or request bot assistance on the Support Requests board. Sovq 07:23, September 14, 2011 (UTC)
As far as me using a bot, where would I access that? Or is it a paid feature? Or would I need to go to the Support Requests Board anyway? Thank you for the help. JLNicholsonII 12:56, September 14, 2011 (UTC)
Most editors use Pywikipediabot or AutoWikiBrowser to perform menial tasks on wikis, like mass deletions. Both of them are free, stand-alone applications which you can download and use. Sovq 13:02, September 14, 2011 (UTC)
