Description

Feature request: bulk action for revision deletion on user contributions on enwiki.

At present, admins have access to a bulk action via tickboxes and a "delete/undelete selected revisions" box on page histories, but to revdel multiple edits across multiple pages from Special:Contributions the only option is to do them one-by-one, which is extremely frustrating during sprees of obscene vandalism (see, for example, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/186.93.73.187). Given the function already exists for page histories, and that the 'hideuser' right (part of the oversight package) has a very similar function, I'm guessing it shouldn't be too difficult to make something like this.

The same holds for editing (especially removing) tags now. Special:Contributions should use the same system as page histories and logs.
Edit : to clarify, tags can't be edited directly from Special:Contributions since it doesn't have the checkbox system that histories and logs have. It should also use this checkbox system for revision deletion, and tag editing should be added.
