Thanks[edit]

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I've blocked the user and deleted the pages it created. I guess some bots can still get past the captcha. I still have about 100 spam accounts to delete, but believe it or not there's no way to mass delete users without risking the integrity of the MySQL database. I've been putting it off but I suppose I should really start looking into it again... ITEM-3 (talk) 17:41, 2 February 2014 (EST)

Made some macros to mass delete pages and block users. You have to open each page/user on a new tab, but it doesn't take too long. Use iMacros, delete pages:
TAB T=1
TAG POS=1 TYPE=A ATTR=TXT:Delete
TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:TEXT FORM=ID:deleteconfirm ATTR=ID:wpReason CONTENT=
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SELECT FORM=ID:deleteconfirm ATTR=ID:wpDeleteReasonList CONTENT=%Spam
TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:SUBMIT FORM=ID:deleteconfirm ATTR=ID:wpConfirmB
TAB CLOSE
Block users:
TAB T=1
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SELECT ATTR=ID:mw-input-wpExpiry CONTENT=%infinite
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SELECT ATTR=ID:mw-input-wpReason CONTENT=%Spamming<SP>links<SP>to<SP>external<SP>sites
TAG POS=1 TYPE=LABEL ATTR=TXT:Prevent<SP>user<SP>from<SP>sending<SP>email
TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:CHECKBOX ATTR=ID:mw-input-wpDisableEmail CONTENT=YES
TAG POS=1 TYPE=LABEL ATTR=TXT:Prevent<SP>logged-in<SP>users<SP>from<SP>editing<SP>from*
TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:CHECKBOX ATTR=ID:mw-input-wpHardBlock CONTENT=YES
TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:SUBMIT ATTR=*
TAB CLOSE
