TheSuave--

In response to your reversing my removal of the THEATER section from the "Jenni Blong" page, I humbly ask you to consider the guidelines from the "Wikipedia: Biographies of Living Persons" under the heading "People Who Are Relatively Unknown":

"Many Wikipedia articles contain material on people who are not well known, even if they are notable enough for their own article. In such cases, exercise restraint and include only material relevant to the person's notability.... Material that may adversely affect a person's reputation should be treated with special care."

First of all, Jenni is listed as an actor "who has worked in American film, television, and theater", when in fact she has never been paid to work in the theater, and she is not presently nor has ever been notable (or even known) to anyone as a theater actress. She has not even pursued work in the theater since she started getting paid to act. And yet when a person comes to this page, the first things they read about her, directly under "Career", are a marginal and a bad review from two semi-professional theater productions she appeared in when she was a student. If she were a more famous actor, a "public figure", these reviews would likely not appear or if they did they would be buried among a long list of reviews from actual noteworthy productions. Don't you think? While these obscure theater productions did happen, they are clearly not Wiki-noteworthy in and of themselves, and they also, while being true, have at best minimal relevance to the Wiki-notability of Jenni Blong. Yet they seem to be the lead story here, and are the only reviews present because the roles for which Jenni is actually known don't get reviewed, as they are not huge leads.

As a living television and film actress trying to get some more notability as such, and not having done any theater for over ten years, can you see where it is not very encyclopedic, and possibly damaging to her professional reputation, to have her page begin with talk about obscure semi-professional theater productions from 1998? Might it be in order to "exercise some restraint" and "treat with special care" the way Jenni is presented here, so as to keep it focused on the things for which she is actually notable, which are her actual professional and notable acting performances in film and television?

Thank you for your consideration.
