All the pages with newsNN should be checked and reverted to previous versions.

Does anyone have a script for this. It is very tedious to do it manually, but I don't know how to write scripts to modify the wiki.

Here's a script I hacked together. It only reverts to the previous version, so if two vandals have modified a page, the result is not what you want to see...

(3 to: 8), #(10 11 13 16 17 19 21 22) do: [:id |

doc := (url, '.history') asUrl retrieveContents.
parsed := HtmlParser parse: (ReadStream on: doc content).
body := parsed contents at: 2.
form := body contents at: 15.
button := form contents at: 2.
version := button getAttribute: 'value'.
