How to delete many draft files at once

I'm a simple user, with no database access.

I want to remove-delete all my draft files, almost 100. I didn't check the drafts tab since years.

Currently, the best course of action is to vote and watch the report. Voting helps to increase the visibility given to the report and by watching the report you will be kept up to date with everything posted there.

Please also consider voting for this to be fixed: CONFCLOUD-70244

And perhaps add a comment there also pointing out your use-case (that, as a user rather than an admin, you want to clean up your own drafts).


Thanks for pointing this out @Mykenna Cepek 

I stumbled upon my (large) pile of draft pages today (most of them being empty and untitled) so I have voted for
