I noticedEdit

I noticed you remove birth-dates without reason, especially on Iris (Japanese band). How and Where should they be written?CuteDolphin712 (talk) 04:34, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

@CuteDolphin712: Please see the Talk page discussion I linked in the edit summary of all of those removals, and consider contributing to the discussion. Jalen D. Folf (talk) 04:36, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
I know ... but could they be moved to other pages like Talk Page?CuteDolphin712 (talk) 04:54, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
As far as I'm aware, the birthdates are already on each of the individual members' Wiki pages, so there's no point including them again. Jalen D. Folf (talk) 04:56, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
These are now redirects, all but one. There are good reasons for excluding the dates anyway. Drmies (talk) 14:29, 23 August 2019 (UTC)


If you are going to post warnings on other editors’ talk pages, I would recommend taking extra care to make sure that you identify the correct editor. Thank you MapReader (talk) 17:03, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

@MapReader: Thank you for informing me. It seems like Twinkle doesn't do a good job at that either. The message was meant to go to Rob Kam, who had difficulty trying to move a page to an uncontroversial title. This has been completed since. Jalen D. Folf (talk) 17:06, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. I don’t see the expected apology, but I will do you the courtesy of imagining that it is there. MapReader (talk)

Luenha RiverEdit

How to do else? The redirect is wrong. Mazowe River is a tributary of Luenha River. regards Peter in s (talk) 04:54, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

@Peter in s: However, you also made it correct by including it as part of the Mazowe River article. A redirect makes the most sense if the page it targets contains an accurate description of the subject in question or if the connection is accurately described. However, if you are looking to write an article, I advise reading over the contents of WP:YFA before proceeding. Jalen D. Folf (talk) 04:56, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

Rejected request of Punch Coomaraswamy (Judge) for G7 deleteEdit

Hi JalenFolf, my request to delete Punch Coomaraswamy (Judge) was rejected by you and your reason was that I am not creator. Please kindly check the page history of moved article (Punch Coomaraswamy (judge) ) by user:Nigos as it shows that I am the creator of the Punch Coomaraswamy (Judge). Once you have seen my message, kindly reply if I still need to add the G7 request again. Thank you. Flipchip73 (talk) 09:35, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

@Flipchip73: Hi. Yes, the creation log does show you as the creator under the title, however the entire edit history was moved to the new title, including your creation credits, which Nigos picked up on the old title when he left a redirect behind. For some reason, the creation log does not reflect this. If you would still like the page deleted, please consider following the instructions at WP:RFD or see if another deletion criteria applies. Thanks. Jalen D. Folf (talk) 15:08, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

About Dilshad Akhtar RedirectingEdit

Hai JalenFolf, I like create a new Page In that Redirecting Page.. U can see that both page name different.. Can you please help in this case.. If u give me persmission or suggestion how can i do that.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dilshad002 (talkcontribs) 08:32, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

@Dilshad002: Hello. It would help me if I knew what you wanted to write about (obviously something relating to the title). It is not a problem to just overwrite the redirect with the content of the article you want to create (please see WP:YFA for tips on writing an article), however articles and mainspace redirects should not be blanked.

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)

review guidelinesEdit

Thanks JalenFolf

You reviewed an article I submitted and rejected my article because - All citations need to be made inline. See WP:REFB. - I would be more then happy to comply with Wiki standards. Can you give me any helpful suggestions. I saw the Visual Editor and it looked good.

Rwdepalma (talk) 20:28, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

@Rwdepalma: As I have linked (twice) in the message posted on your Talk page, the help page on referencing for beginners is a start. You may also look at other resources for efficient references via WP:CITE, which describes what a citation on Wikipedia means and examples on proper citing, and WP:RS, which describes how to identify a reliable source. If there is anything else you are confused about relating to this, you are welcome to reply here or start a thread on your own Talk page using the {{help me}} template with your question. In the case of the latter, someone patrolling the category related to this template, usually an administrator, will point you in the right direction. Instructions on how to use the template are located in its documentation. Jalen D. Folf (talk) 20:36, 11 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)
