Delete Topics within a date in a specific category

Hi! Currently I use the #plugin:voting plugin. The main downside of this plugin is its sort by vote feature as it still shows closed and old topics in the at the top of the voting list.

I am not very familiar with Rails so I was hoping someone could help me out here with a query that I would be able to have 2 dates. And delete/archive(preferred) any topics that are in a specific category in between those dates. This would help immensely because I would be able to remove old content. Thanks!
