So our community has started up a new wiki, and one of our users created some 200+ empty pages, the majority of which he has not marked as stubs, with maybe about 20 that are actually relevant to the wiki. Is there any way to mass delete a certain user's articles, and then undelete the ones we want to keep? Some have already been modified by other members, so it would be better if we didn't lose those. Thanks in advance! --Soaringaegis 22:51, September 17, 2010 (UTC)
- I'm sorry, there is no way to do so manually, but I recommend setting up a bot here and using either AWB or Pywikipedia to delete these articles. If you need help see this article on Bots and the basics. I also recommend blocking that user if it were spam articles. -- (Talk) (Contributions) (Email me!) 22:46, September 17, 2010 (UTC)
- Ooh, Python. :D Alright, thanks a lot. I'll see what I can do. --Soaringaegis 22:53, September 17, 2010 (UTC)
You could use Batch Delete:
importScriptPage('User:Grunny/bdel.js', 'firefly');. —Manyman (talk) 00:11, September 18, 2010 (UTC)
