Is it possible to use AWB to delete unused files in a wiki? --源田幸次郎 ビーストファング！！ 06:48, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
AFAIK, AWB cannot delete pages. You're going to want to look into PyWikipediaBot instead. Rappy 06:49, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
AWB certainly can delete pages. However, it's kind of difficult to generate a list of unused files. I find that the easiest way to do it is to view the source of Special:UnusedFiles and do a little bit of Regex formatting to get the file names. ʞooɔ

I honestly have no idea what Regex formatting means. Is there an easy way to explain to me what I should do? --源田幸次郎 ビーストファング！！ 07:00, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
Really? I'll have to look into that. Rappy 07:07, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
If you point me to your wiki I could make a usable list of the unused files on it that could be fed to AWB for deletion. ʞooɔ
