Before anyone messages me about disambiguation pages...Edit

Yes, I am aware that I made 100+ edits removing {{long comment}} from disambiguation pages, but I had good reason for it. This is because disambiguation pages with the footnote (i.e. those footnotes that produce the default disambiguation editnotice) do not appear on Special:ShortPages. The issue of these pages littering the ShortPages list was resolved at this Phabricator ticket. Jalen D. Folf (talk) 02:28, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Your Recent Edit about Dilshad PageEdit

Hi, JalenFolf, If a person name is Dilshad... Is it okay to edit that page and Put new person details { i am just clearing my doubt }.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dilshad002 (talkcontribs) 06:42, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

@Dilshad002: Yes, so long as a Wikipedia page exists for the person. If no such page exists, the alternative is to link a subject that mentions the person in connection to that subject. See MOS:DABENTRY (I find this applies to set indices too). Jalen D. Folf (talk) 03:47, 13 September 2019 (UTC)


Hello. You have recently reverted my move on Gazipur which currently redirects to Gazipur City. Can you move Gazipur City to Gazipur as an uncontroversial move per WP:BDPLACE? Za-ari-masen (talk) 04:05, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks. Za-ari-masen (talk) 04:09, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Dilshad Page Recent EditEdit

I am closing this discussion before it gets out of hand. As of writing this, there is an open sockpuppet investigation regarding the user who started this thread and previous related threads on this Talk page. Jalen D. Folf (talk) 00:48, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi JalenFolf, I recently add a person article on Dilshad Page.. Please check the page.. if you give me any suggestions.. it's more helpful for me — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dilshad002 (talkcontribs) 05:20, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

JalenFolf, Dilshad002 did this by once again hijacking the existing Dilshad article, the disambiguation list that you'd created. The substituted article appeared to be self-promotion as well and, seeing that he's been blocked for hijacking that page before, I just submitted another block request. Largoplazo (talk) 10:59, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Jalenfolf,Largoplazo as per checking from my side the Dilshad002 the article he posted person has major news links and also a well known person — Preceding unsigned comment added by MikkiModified (talkcontribs) 11:41, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Your comment reflects a failure to read and understand the explanation I gave for the reversion and the reason for the block. Largoplazo (talk) 22:17, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

@Largoplazo: JalenFolf said these exact words while we talked earlier... " It is not a problem to just overwrite the redirect with the content of the article you want to create." This is why I overwrote it. Please do not outright block me again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Asnavava (talkcontribs) 12:22, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

"Ms Nina" listed at Redirects for discussionEdit

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Ms Nina. Since you had some involvement with the Ms Nina redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you wish to do so. From AnUnnamedUser (open talk page) 02:29, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

Deleted History after page move "List of compositions by Johannes Brahms"Edit

Hi! When you made the page move from List of compositions by Johannes Brahms by opus number to List of compositions by Johannes Brahms, you inadvertently deleted the existing History for the move-to page. Before this move, the move-to page contained a redirect from a split in 2011, and contained extensive history up to that point. Now it just contains the History copied from the move-from page, which begins in 2011, the date of the split. I don't think that's supposed to happen.

Guam v Syria FIFA Second Round AFCEdit

Actually, about your self revert, I found some Syrian sources (which were written in Arabic), which stated that the fixtures have been reversed because of Visa Policy Issues of USA to that of Syria. That's why Syria has probably asked to play their home match first so that the necessary paperwork and Visa's can be sorted out till the reverse fixture.--Anbans 585 (talk) 14:50, 23 September 2019 (UTC)

@Anbans 585: Thank you so much for finding this. I will remain unopposed to you restoring the original swap with the inclusion of this source.   Jalen Folf (talk) 15:06, 23 September 2019 (UTC)

Here is one such link, though I am not sure about its authenticity.--Anbans 585 (talk) 15:15, 23 September 2019 (UTC)

Want to change the title and content of one page to anotherEdit

Hi, Can you please explain why you are redirecting my one page to my another? Both (MANI INC. and KAGLA VAPORTECH CORPORATION) is owned by me and now I don't want MANI INC. Please suggest an easy way out. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hitomishirirana (talkcontribs) 02:06, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

@Hitomishirirana: The best way to do this is to create an entirely new page for KAGLA. Simply overwrite the existing redirect with the content you intended. As I described in your message to you, do not move MANI Inc. to this title while the article is up for deletion. The reason I say this is because a move like this messes up the system and prevents closers from doing their job more efficiently. Jalen Folf (talk) 02:28, 27 September 2019 (UTC)
@JalenFolf: You said I can create an entirely new page for Kagla but I find it more difficult now. What can be done now?

Speedy DeletionsEdit

You have deleted two articles that we are in the middle of editing while they were being edited for an event. We have been attempting to add to these pages, and would like them returned to do so.

Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by PoetryPerson1 (talkcontribs) 17:47, 28 September 2019 (UTC)

(edit conflict) @PoetryPerson1: They have been moved to draftspace by RHaworth, who has acknowledged that you are working on the articles for the event in which you are hosting. Feel free to work on them there. Jalen Folf (talk) 17:49, 28 September 2019 (UTC)

Kim FloresEdit

Hi JalenFolf. I removed your tagging of Kim Flores as WP:CSD A7, because I think the sentence about the subject being a "World Champion in the Singing Category from World Championships of Performing Arts" is a claim of notability, so this doesn't quite meet the criteria. I had thought about tagging it as CSD:A7 myself, but in the end went for BLP:PROD because of the claim of notability. All the best, The Mirror Cracked (talk) 21:00, 28 September 2019 (UTC)

Similar name and edit filter hit queriesEdit

Hi, have you any knowledge of this account I blocked (JaidenFolf)? I also noticed an edit filter log hit by SharabSalam here, which matches this hit by you to Religion in China. Any thoughts? N.J.A. | talk 14:23, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

@NJA: After looking at it carefully, I believe the account is a sockpuppet of Kidhackr, who had been making similar disruption on the articles that this account targeted as well. The linked sockpuppet investigation should have some context.   Jalen Folf (talk) 14:36, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for the info. Thought I’d ask, N.J.A. | talk 00:36, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
Just to be clear, I was reverting while JalenFolf was reverting but JalenFolf edit was saved and mine was not. I don't know what happened to the edit filter and I don't know much about edit filters.--SharabSalam (talk) 14:54, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
That makes sense and no worries. Good job both, N.J.A. | talk 00:37, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Record label editsEdit

Hi, I saw you have started on what looks like a systematic effort to remove artist rosters from record label pages. I'm not sure that this is the best way to handle such lists. There's longstanding precedent that lists and categories of the same things can coexist (this used to bother me, too, with lists like List of pop punk bands, which I always thought silly when a category would be much more manageable, but I lost that war many years ago), and there is certainly longstanding precedent for including artist lists on record label pages - this is done on almost every label page, and is in many cases the chief reason for the article to exist (to inform readers of the label roster in a list form). While categories for record labels would be a nice addition to many of these pages, almost none of them actually have categories at this point, and those categories would be "unsourced" in the same way - categories don't have citations attached to them, and label affiliation is generally pretty trivial to verify; it's rather matter-of-fact and generally uncontroversial, and it doesn't strike me as a particularly good use of editors' time to preemptively stud such lists with four hundred citations to discographical resources. If we were going to convert to category form, we'd want to point readers to the existence of this information - in the "roster" section, we'd want an anchor to the category so they could find it easily, but this hasn't been done. Lastly, if we are embarking on a wholesale removal of artist lists from label pages...I think we ought to have a consensus that that is the best way to handle the information, so I think it would merit the opening up of a discussion, perhaps at WT:MUSIC, before continuing. I'm restoring these lists for the time being, but I wanted to leave you a note so you weren't alarmed and understood my rationale. I'll put this page on my watchlist in case you'd like to discuss further. Chubbles (talk) 03:42, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

Tagging of User:Miggy72Edit

I recently removed a speedy delete tag that you had placed on User:Miggy72. I do not think that User:Miggy72 fits any of the speedy deletion criteria  because This user has made a number of edits to mainspace articles about hurricanes. Information from one of these deos not seem "unrelated to Wikipedia" nor to justify a U5 Deletion. I request that you consider not re-tagging User:Miggy72 for speedy deletion without discussing the matter on the appropriate talk page. DES (talk)DESiegel Contribs 19:40, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
