Use special extensions and CMS maintenance scripts for mass delete edits and inactive users. Use following in several passes:

Special pages:

  • Special:Nuke - tool allows for mass deletions of pages recently added by a given user or an IP address
  • Special:Statistics - view current state

Run commands of CMS maintenance scripts (terminal/console only):

php maintenance/deleteArchivedRevisions.php --delete
php maintenance/removeUnusedAccounts.php --delete

Common service in end of work:

php maintenance/purgeOldText.php --purge
