My problem is that I have added many (about 200) images with a wiki bot to our company's wiki, a MediaWiki.

Now I want to delete all the images I have uploaded. I gave them all a name with a specified prefix. I planned to use the prefix to delete them. The problem now is that MediaWiki doesn't provide a function for deleting multiple articles.

My idea was to use a wiki bot to do this task. But before I'm starting to write an, own I want to ask: Is there such a bot already? I'm looking for a wiki bot that could delete articles in MediaWiki based on a regex. Does anybody know such a tool?


Start with an apprefix query from the mediawiki query API. Then see the mediawiki delete API command.
