This IP has been removing readings of Vietnamese Han characters (mostly chữ Nôm readings) - More than 200 entries are affected. Can an admin revert all edits that are revertable? I will check and update these readings using this format, but it will take some time. KevinUp (talk) 22:40, 19 May 2019 (UTC)[reply]
I'm on it, though there don't seem to be any of these edits outside of the /20 block, and I'm only going back to February, which is when this started. Chuck Entz (talk) 01:08, 20 May 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Done, and blocked. I reverted all the edits I mentioned that weren't followed by any one else's edits, except for a few that showed no net removal of characters (slight tweaks in spelling, capitalization, etc.). It's quite telling that almost none of their edits added to or maintained character counts, but there were lots that left the entries with fewer characters- in one case, 133 characters fewer.

Thank you for dealing with this issue. The 3 month block gives adequate time for me to look through all 206 entries that are affected. @Suzukaze-c Perhaps it is time to convert deprecated {{vi-hantu}} to {{vi-readings}} (4815 entries). The older template has limited functionality. KevinUp (talk) 17:09, 20 May 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Chuck Entz This IP is once again removing readings from Vietnamese Han characters after the previous ban expired. KevinUp (talk) 02:20, 8 September 2019 (UTC)[reply]
And I once again reverted everything I could and blocked them. This time I went further and undid all of their edits that couldn't be rolled back but could be undone- that was most of their edits. Chuck Entz (talk) 05:17, 8 September 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@KevinUp: what about (talkcontribswhoisdeleted contribsnukeedit filter logblockblock logactive blocksglobal blocks)? Chuck Entz (talk) 14:41, 7 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Chuck Entz: Yes, same pattern of removing Vietnamese readings without explanation. I've reverted the edits made. KevinUp (talk) 16:34, 7 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Chuck Entz Same activity (removal of Vietnamese readings) from these IP: KevinUp (talk) 00:05, 28 December 2019 (UTC)[reply] (talkcontribsglobal account infodeleted contribsnukeedit filter logpage movesblockblock logactive blocks) (talkcontribsglobal account infodeleted contribsnukeedit filter logpage movesblockblock logactive blocks)
I had already reverted most of (talkcontribswhoisdeleted contribsnukeedit filter logblockblock logactive blocksglobal blocks). I've now reverted, undid or fixed by hand all of the other removals by both ranges, and range-blocked for 3 months. I left their capitalization edits alone.
