  • Some edits by a vandal (now undone) at 百川 may have to be hidden, they appear to contain personal information. ←₰-→ Lingo Bingo Dingo (talk) 10:57, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

    • They seem to have taken the hint after you reverted them the second time. The IP geolocates to the same city as the person whose exploits they lovingly described at great length, so I hid their edits and blocked them for "adding nonsense/gibberish". I use that block-reason a lot anyway in order to make the block log as boring as possible (that's also why my blocks are almost always the same duration), but it's particularly satisfying when people vandalize the dictionary to promote themselves.

  • 171.97.47.201 (talkcontribswhoisdeleted contribsnukeedit filter logblockblock logactive blocksglobal blocks) I think this is the same guy who has been adding Spanish BS throughout the year. He has also made some edits to Chinese, Arabic and Sanskrit entries. — Ungoliant (falai) 13:15, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
    • Yes, we've been fighting them for a while. They've been most noticeable in Chinese and Arabic, but they'll edit anything, and they always find some way to screw things up. They have a fondness for adding language-specific IPA templates and inflection templates where they don't belong, and they, sadly, seem to honestly believe they know what they're doing. It wouldn't surprise me if they're incompetent in their own language as well, but I have no way to tell. I've been blocking Thai IPs any time I see them editing Arabic or non-English European languages, but they're very persistent. Chuck Entz (talk) 18:34, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
