Clickable Birthdays?[edit]

Why are dates (as in birthdays) always made clickable? Do people really want to know who else was born or what happened on that day that much? Is it possible to make something clickable without making it look like it is clickable (reserved exclusively for things like dates)? A sentence where the majority 5tare good, thx.

I think the date linking thing might be for the convenience of the people sex who maintain things like the daily anniversaries and the pages on years. Wikipedia has a "what links to this article" function, so if you want to find things that happened in a given year, you can click on the "what links here" at that year. I agree that excessive linking is often distracting, btw. Isomorphic 07:18, 6 Jul 2004 (UTC)

why is the picture her with a crazy expression? There must be better ones to use/ more flattering. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.196.14.187 (talk) 02:23, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Citations[edit]

Why is it that some things require citations and others do not? Things like whom she has dated and attributable citations need nothing yet things I've read and seen with my own eyes get blotted out. Let's at least be consistant. If you don't like the blunt "she's a heavy smoker" then at least say she is purported to be so or "eyewitnesses have said..." Fyunck(click) 07:00, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Trivia[edit]

What is Shannernanner's problem with Lauren's height? It was moved from "Private Life" to "Trivia" and yet still Shannernanner edits it out. Trivia seems a good place for it along with her smoking. Heck, if we find out her shoe size it could go there also. Fyunck(click) 21:45, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Placing non-notable and unverifiable comments under "Trivia" is not encyclopedic. Shannernanner 02:46, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
But someone Like Lauren Graham would never be in an encyclopedia in the first place if not for gossip and trivia, otherwise all you have is she's an actress on Gilmore Girls. I think you need a little more leaway on the borderline stuff when it comes to celebrites. When people come to a site on Lauren Graham they want to know facts about her, even little details... If she dyes her hair they want to know it. If it's some lesbian rumour, sure, dump it. if it's a dating rumour, dump it. If people magazine interviews her and she mentions her first kiss, people want to know that... put it in personal or trivia. Fyunck(click) 07:33, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
She is in the encyclopedia because she is notable as an actress, not because of unverifiable trivia regarding her. Shannernanner 12:38, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
Which would be 5 sentences of info if you don't include somewhat trivial items. And who said they were unverifiable? You called them non-notable before. Her height can be found in almost any magazine, she talks about liking belly buttons on a National tv show in front of millions of viewers, in multiple interviews she has said her favorite thing to wear is a pair of jeans. Trivial yes, true yes, but when a reader comes to the Wikipedia to look up Lauren Graham it's what they want to see.
Her article has sufficient information without resorting to unverified and non-notable items (which I did say in my first reply). I never said her quotes were trivial. Shannernanner 15:04, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

TooMuchTrivia[edit]

Who is this that added the toomuchtrivia item? Wikipedia police? I just want to know since a lot of people vandalize and are allowed to do so because of ignorance on our parts. It should be discussed first and then added. Fyunck(click) 02:07, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Height[edit]

Moved from article:

"standing 5' 9" (1.75 m)"

Please establish notability, verifiable source, and proper context. Shannernanner 20:58, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

obviously it's still there and I have no problem with it, nor do I have a problem with a few other known tidbits. They are in the same ballpark of obscurity but they are things that people want to know. 72.129.83.125 00:41, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

trivia[edit]

Who is responsible for the irrelevent trivia section. she 'likes bellybuttons'?, give me a break. this is an encyclopedia, if people want the sort of information found in 'people' magazine as noted above, they can read people magazine. People come to wikipedia for verifiable relevent information. period. Lucastheory 07:25, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

i wonder if she is as annoying in real life as her character on gilmore girls.

part italian[edit]

another wikipedia page says she's part italian...

Future Projects[edit]

I'm jsut covering my bases here, because one of my friends got "yelled at" on the Pete Wentz discussion page for something that was "irrelevant" and I'm not sure if I need a source for this.

Lauren has confirmed upcoming projects with Matthew Perry, Laws Of Motion, and Greg Kinnear, Flash Of Genius. She has another project lined up, set to start after Flash of Genius, but no word has been given as to who it is with and what it's called.

The last thing about Lauren I heard was she was with Matthew Petty. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.141.15.30 (talk) 01:00, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Fan page[edit]

Much of this reads like a fan page. Hyperbole like "finally launched her to stardom" and references to her "memorable" roles are definitely subjective. There is little here that is encyclopaedic and a lot that would work well for Entertainment Tonight. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.0.133.120 (talk) 21:09, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Singer?[edit]

Is she classified as singer based on only one (?) musical? Actually there is nothing about her singing, apart from header which states she is also a singer. Or is the Broadway a musical-only? The play is not stated as musical in this article. 82.141.72.97 (talk) 17:31, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

I concur, and have removed "singer" from her lead. Qwyrxian (talk) 21:44, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
