Nuke Extension

Is there access by you to the configuration php files of the MediaWiki installation? This version of MediaWiki comes with the Nuke Extension that just has to be enabled. I'd really appreciate that addon being enabled. It'll let me delete the entire in a couple clicks... DeathCamel57 (talk) 21:29, 5 November 2016 (UTC)


Hi, how can I help you combat spam? --Marko (talk) 08:06, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

By convincing the LXDE people they need to start with a new installation of MediaWiki (the wiki system) and MySQL database - this one contains a lot of rubbish (deleted spam), making the search go very slow. Further, we need some anti-spam tools to be installed. It would be far easier to have FTP access, but I don't know if that's doable.
I am deleting the spam with a script for Actionaz. This is semi-automated. I use Multi Links to open 100's of tabs at the same time. Once they're loaded, I click run in Actionaz and the spam pages get removed. Some fail (for several reasons) to be deleted. These must be deleted manually. It does not take that long.
Since I am limited in my technical way of doing things (see above what I need), these days just consist of removing Spam. Since we don't have a unified logon system (for the German wiki, for example) I also have to login and logout several times for different wikis.
I assume you are running Linux, have a look here to download and install actionaz:
To obtain the script, you can contact me at any time:
Kind regards,

I've been using PyWikiBot to put spam pages into before I go through and delete it.
Check it out if you haven't looked into it. DeathCamel57 (talk) 21:29, 5 November 2016 (UTC)
