How do you stop hyperventilating?[edit]

It says in the text that she was given supplemental oxygen when she hyperventilated, that would kill her. Treatment for hyperventilation is to restrict oxygen by holding breathe or breathing in and out of a paper bag, thus breathing less and less oxygen. This was marked as a quote so should be double checked for accuracy and then perhaps, if it is correctly quoted, a statement of it not being accurate. PetePassword (talk) 11:52, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

An explanation[edit]

I would like an explanation as to why my edits aren't welcome to this page. I don't know if the user who keeps reverting is a fanboy who doesn't want anybody editing the page but him, but I would like answers. As I've explained on the edits summaries, I included the two sources of her televison credits and I don't know why there has to be separate columns for the same show? Just cause she played two different characters on Medium doesn't mean there has to be two columns. Her other SNL appearance is just plain redundant. There have been many celebrities who have made cameo appearances on the show and aren't included because it's not note-worthy. If she was the host, musical guest (which is unlikely), or made an apppearance on a sketch than fine, but it was just herself in opening. Cameos in the show isn't new. I would really like to know as to why my edits aren't welcome here. This is a first for me. Film Atom (talk) 07:22, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Can't say I know all the answers, but this page definitely isn't run by any controlling fanboys. Snuggums (talk / edits) 12:16, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
@Film Atom: I have restored your changes with some additional tweaks; see this. FrB.TG (talk) 12:25, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
I don't see how saying "if the user who keeps reverting is a fanboy who doesn't want anybody editing the page but him" helps the situation. While I do think your edits are valid, I disagree with the summary. It wasn't a lie. The source could have easily been misled regarding Jennifer's education.

Semi-protected edit request on 22 February 2018[edit]

News outlets [3] and social media users[4] ruminated on whether her choice, a Versace dress with a plunging neckline and thigh-high slit, was appropriate for brisk London weather[5]. Lawrence responded to criticism on her Facebook page, that she was “extremely offended” over the controversy, claiming "That Versace dress was fabulous, you think I'm going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf? I was outside for 5 minutes. I would have stood in the snow for that dress because I love fashion and that was my choice. This is sexist, this is ridiculous, this is not feminism. Over- reacting about everything someone says or does, creating controversy over silly innocuous things such as what I choose to wear or not wear, is not moving us forward. It's creating silly distractions from real issues. Get a grip people. Everything you see me wear is my choice. And if I want to be cold THATS MY CHOICE TOO!".[6] Webintegrity (talk) 12:42, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

 Not done: Per WP:RECENTISM. Almost 200 words on a micro-"controversy" based on a 5-minute photo call is vastly unnecessary and not compliant with WP:NPOV or WP:BLP. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 20:37, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

Jennifer Lawerence edited her own Wikipedia page[edit]

Hello everyone. I just wanted to let everyone know that the following video from GQ (here) shows Lawrence editing her own Wikipedia page. I am not sure if it is relevant here, but I thought it might interest some of you. Aoba47 (talk) 03:24, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

It's a fakeout, at least wasn't done with the "ActuallyJLaw" account when checking the article history, but was inserted by "WhiteDove". Snuggums (talk / edits) 03:39, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
  • That is what I thought. It is still pretty lame to do a fakeout. Aoba47 (talk) 03:56, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

It is only fake insofar that the creators of the youtube video reshot the edits using autocapture after main shooting of Lawrence, for whatever reason. The video represents a primary source, which is applicable to the living persons policy WP:BLPSOURCES (she is challenging contentious material), and the publication of the video by GQ is a secondary source with has equal weight as the original Vogue interview. 1.202.54.72 (talk) 09:54, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Pity that it’s a fake coz it was really funny. Krimuk2.0 (talk) 10:01, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
@Aoba47: I saw that video immediately after it was published and rushed to check the edits. But there were none. LOL. BTW, the writers of this article should be proud that she actually read the article herself. That's a huge compliment!Krish | Talk 15:00, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
