A question about redirecting pages

Hello, sorry for bothering you but I have a question about redirecting pages. I know I should have asked you before but I saw you redirecting Sohee and Minju's pages, then I remembered that some months ago I redirected Goeun (LXIA) page to Goeun (LAYSHA) (I created the LAYSHA'S Goeun profile and then later I realized both Goeuns are the same person ugh). However, Goeun (LXIA) still shows on Korean Girl Group Members category. My question is: when redirecting pages, should I delete all the content of the page to be redirected (leaving only the # redirect) or just leave the page as it is? Thank you!

No worries! It depends on what page is being redirected and if it's linked somewhere else. Generally for artist pages, I redirect and don't delete the former page if it's going from a full name to a stage name (ex. Kim Sihyeon to Sihyeon, Jo Serim to Onda). For Sohee and Minju, their pages have been redirected quite a few times, so I went back and directed older pages to the most current page. It's possible to delete older pages or interim pages as long as the original post where they are found is modified (ex. Sohee is first found on KPOP STAR's page as "[[Kim So Hee (HUNUS)|Kim So Hee]]". "Kim So Hee (HUNUS)" can be deleted as long as her name is directed to her current page, [[Sohee|Kim So Hee]]).

For Goeun, she appears on a category as "Go Eun (LXIA)" because that page has not been cleared of everything except the redirect. If you go to the "More" tab to the right of the "View History" tab of the page, you can redirect by simply using the "Move" button, which will carry all information from one page to another and leaving the redirect behind automatically. In Goeun's case, since the new page is already created, you just simply need to remove all the information from that page except the redirect you added.

Here's "Go Eun (LXIA)" after being cleared. I've deleted "Go Eun (LAYSHA)" as a duplicate page and directly linked Go Eun (LXIA) to Goeun (LAYSHA).

I hope that helps, it may be a bit confusing. D:

Merging labels and probably disbanded group

Hello! Recently was announced that ONO Entertainment and NOS Entertainment are going to merge and form a new label, Star ENT. To keep it updated, should be created a new page for this label or just edit ONO Entertainment's page?

Also I wanna ask about Secret. I just found news of Hyosung leaving TS Entertainment and a lot of disband rumors, which makes sense because only Hana is still in the group. Should we consider Secret as a disbanded group?

I finally learned how to edit pages and profiles properly and I'm making less mistakes, so to keep things clean I prefer to ask you guys before moving or editing things that I'm not 100% sure. I always do a lot of researches before editing something. Sorry for anything!

You can redirect ONO Entertainment's page to Star ENT.

We generally don't claim any group as disbanded unless there is confirmation, i.e. an official announcement is made.

I can try to let you know when I edit things, but I'm sure sometimes I will forget as I edit a lot of pages. So I apologize if for some reason you're not notified of an edit. You can always just periodically check any pages you've created.
