Hi there, I'd like to use my bot to delete some pages in a certain category, however, I'm not sure how to get it to do this. Is it possible? And if not, are there any alternates? Because deleting over 2,000 images & pages is a very difficult task.--Technobliterator 21:50, July 13, 2011 (UTC)

Delete is in the toolbar which can be accessed under the view menu.--GodPray  21:53,7/13/2011 
I see, I found it, how do I make it delete multiple pages I put in a list?--Technobliterator 22:18, July 13, 2011 (UTC)
Still can't find a guide online that says how to do this. Anyone who can help?--Technobliterator 11:46, July 14, 2011 (UTC)
I think AWB can't delete a number of pages automatically. I'm wondering about that too. If you should find a way, please let me know. --Weas-El  12:44, July 14, 2011 (UTC)
Nope, there's no way to delete a bunch of pages at once. But the summary saves, and you can delete ~30 pages a minute with AWB. Unless you're deleting more than a thousand pages or something, it shouldn't take too long. Cook Me Plox 01:45, July 19, 2011 (UTC)
If you need an automated bot, try Pywikipediabot instead. It's more difficult to use though, as it has no GUI. - Tjcool007 (Talk) 21:57, July 19, 2011 (UTC)
