Currently, it isn't possible to bulk delete messages that are over two weeks old using the API, however I did notice that bot developers could delete them individually as a workaround. I don't think this would be the fastest way to delete messages, since I have to delete one by one instead of purging them almost immediately as if they were made before they passed the two week barrier.
Sure the bot can delete faster than I can click, but I think it would be nice to have the two week restriction removed, or at least increased if I didn't want to delete the entire channel. To me, it looks weird to see a channel being used while a message purge is still happening.
