*I created an article "Robin Cook (entertainter)" (one t too much) on the English Wikipedia.
*I realized I had misspelled the article and moved it to "Robin Cook (entertainer)"

*I added a {{hangon}}-tag
*I moved the page to "Jonas Ekfeldt" and edited some more

I should perhaps also mention that the original article with the misspelt name "Robin Cook (entertainter)" was deleted at 11.23 on 2 July 2007:

Now there is no history of who added the tags {{db-band}} or {{Notability|date=July 2007}} (or any other history before I added the {{hangon}}-tag) and if you look in Hu's contributions ( there is no record there of him adding the tags to "Robin Cook (entertainer)".
