There are 46 images in the slideshow. How do I delete them all at once instead of doing it one at a time? --Rayous Talk 13:38, October 30, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure if there is a way to delete them all at once, but if you have a bot, you can grant it admin rights, and you'll be able to delete the images quicker. --Dser (wall | email) 13:41, 10/30/2011
Lol, I don't even know how to use a bot. --Rayous Talk 13:44, October 30, 2011 (UTC)
To use a bot , you create an account on wikia , maybe called RayousBot . Then you download either
the following , Pywikipediabot or AutoWikiBroswer . Then you do bot edit's using the one you have
downloaded . If you need more help , contact me here . Thanks . * ~Happy65 Talk My Amazing Blogs ! 13:49, October 30, 2011 (UTC)
I downloaded AutoWikiBrowser last year and till this day I still dunno how to operate it. --Rayous Talk 13:55, October 30, 2011 (UTC)
You'd need pywikipediabot for a deletion task, AWB doesn't do that, fairly simple task, I can do it if you'd like -- RandomTime 14:05, October 30, 2011 (UTC)
That will do. --Rayous Talk 14:10, October 30, 2011 (UTC)
Done -- RandomTime 14:15, October 30, 2011 (UTC)
Randomtime, AWB does allow you delete pages. --Dser (wall | email) 14:16, 10/30/2011
Not in an automatic fashion, you have to click the "delete" button for each page -- RandomTime 14:18, October 30, 2011 (UTC)

How did you delete all 46 images at the same time? --Rayous Talk 14:19, October 30, 2011 (UTC)

(Reset indent) I used pywikipediabot -- RandomTime 14:20, October 30, 2011 (UTC)

Oh crap, I wanted the 46 images in the slideshow deleted, not the entire gallery page. --Rayous Talk 14:21, October 30, 2011 (UTC)
Restored -- RandomTime 14:29, October 30, 2011 (UTC)
There are 3 more images left to be restored. --Rayous Talk 14:31, October 30, 2011 (UTC)
All the images in the gallery are there for me, what are the other ones that aren't there for you? -- RandomTime 14:37, October 30, 2011 (UTC)
