Helena, revised? was created by ulph
Hello! Upon browsing Amaranth, I notice Helena has the following card text, on the actual card as well as the "revised" tab:

"revised"

Name: Helena
[CE:V, BSC:X]
Cardtype: Vampire
Clan: Toreador
Group: 3
Capacity: 10
Discipline: obf pre tha AUS CEL DOM
Camarilla: While Helena is locked and ready, she can burn 1 blood to wake, but only for reaction cards requiring Auspex [aus]. +1 bleed.
Artist: Rebecca Guay

"official"

Name: Helena
[CE:V, BSC:X]
Cardtype: Vampire
Clan: Toreador
Group: 3
Capacity: 10
Discipline: obf pre tha AUS CEL DOM
Camarilla: If Helena is locked and ready, she can burn a blood to be able to attempt to block and/or play reaction cards that require Auspex [aus] as if unlocked for the remainder of the action. +1 bleed.
Artist: Rebecca Guay

What is this "revised" card text on Amaranth to begin with? Pending changes? Some unofficial rewording?

If pending official it is quite a significant nerf unless I misread - ie, cannot wake/block without playing a [aus] reaction card?

Correct.

This here is the only official card text source:

The revised tab card text is from here:

This is useful to spot errors in upcoming card text.

Why are there any kind of unofficial rewordings in services that common people regularly use?

It helps to pick up and correct issues in forthcoming card text / revisions. The more eyes the better.

For example the revised text of Huitzilopochtli currently has a typo; this was reported by an Amaranth user; Vincent has been notified and can then correct the source file.

But it confuses normal people what the correct wording actually is, in a game thats already way too confusing. This comes up regularly with new local players who have no idea multiple wordings exist, or that the errata is "unofficial". It is very misleading.
