My edit of February 28, 2014[edit]

The quick comment space was not really sufficient for the explanation of the change, so I am writing a bit here. While the press report citing Logan attending AA meetings is a legit cite, it is not really necessary to note that she "attended AA meetings." Alcoholics Anonymous itself (as an organization) asks that its members remain anonymous at the level of press, radio, and films. While that policy does not mention TV or the internet, it predates the invention of both, and anonymity at the level of the internet can be safely presumed. While Wikipedia and it's contributors are not responsible for maintaining this policy, it costs nothing to go along with it, and is courteous to avoid anonymity breaks where possible. (The reasoning behind this appears to be a desire that no one become "the public face of AA," and then lead to damage to the AA program's reputation due to a well-publicized flameout by a 'known' member. Since it is always up to the individual to work and develop their own way of following the program, any individual failure is not the fault of AA per se, but simply the nature of the problem of alcoholism. AA decided early on to try to avoid this trap, as it would lead to the program being less helpful, and opted to follow a policy of anonymity.)

Put more personally, as I am a member myself, if I flame out, it was a lack in my own working of the program, and should not reflect on AA itself. AA has had remarkable successes, and anything that might be a threat to possible future success should be avoided, if possible. — Preceding unsigned comment added by FrRob (talkcontribs) 03:04, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Lindsay Lohan Personality Disorder[edit]

UCLA doctors diagnosed Lindsay with a personality disorder in 2010. [Two links removed.] (talk) 06:42, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Supposed private medical information, cited to an anonymous TMZ source? (Note that the Foxnews URL is just a republishing of TMZ, not independent reporting.) This is what WP:BLP and WP:REDFLAG were made for. (In other words, including this in the article would be against Wikipedia policy.) Siawase (talk) 12:52, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
In fact, including the information on this talk beyond what is necessary to discussion the question may be a violation of WP:BLP, so I removed the links. -Sigeng (talk) 09:17, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 30 June 2014[edit]

While in negotiations for her role in Speed The Plow, Lohan quietly signed on to play the role of Feathers in the upcoming horror film Six Gun Dead, directed by Darwin Brooks<>. JackGuthrie15 (talk) 00:10, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

We don't cite to IMDb. Perhaps you have a more reliable source?--Bbb23 (talk) 00:18, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 1 July 2014[edit]

You forgot to mention an entire role in the movie My Scene Goes to Hollywood. She had a speaking role and was one of the major characters.

Inconceivable removed[edit]

Lohan was set to start filming Inconceivable in March. It's now July and nothing has been heard of it since the January announcement, and she is working on other projects now. As such, I'm doing a WP:BOLD removal.(diff) If the project is picked up again down the road, we can re-add it then. Siawase (talk) 13:55, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Layout changes[edit]

I reverted the change of section headers here (diff) but my revert was reverted (diff.) The changed layout gives the impression that aside from the "early life" section the rest of the prose only speaks about her professional life, which is entirely incorrect, since personal life material is interspersed in the entire chronological prose of the article. Also, we could perhaps wait until her stage show has actually opened before adding it to the header, see WP:CRYSTAL. We could even wait until we have some idea of what lasting career impact it will have. Siawase (talk) 10:49, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

I agree that her personal and professional life are combined. I feel like we should separate the two and create new sections that cover her personal life and public image. As for her theatre debut, the show opened on September 24. DantODB (talk) 15:18, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Her personal and professional lives are deeply intertwined, hence why they're told as one chronological narrative here. Previous attempts at separating the two have not gone well, including causing WP:BLP and WP:NPOV issues, see previous discussions here [1] and here [2]. The show didn't actually open on the 24th, critics just reviewed a preview, not something they usually do, see: [3][4] Siawase (talk) 16:44, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
