Please see the discussion page of that article, where I gave links and explained everything I did. I am not some random vandal.

Toby Keith[edit]

I have responded on Talk:Toby Keith.

I checked the links, which only go to Wikipedia articles. There are no 3rd party references to this interview for verification purposes, which is required in accordance with Wikipedia:Citing sources. Thank you.--Startstop123 (talk) 18:16, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 18:14, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Articles about living people[edit]

Your edits on Toby Keith are concerning. Articles about living people are held much more strictly to the principles and policies of Wikipedia. Generally, we should only report what reliable independent sources have published about the subject. Self-published works by the subject and interviews should only be used if they are not contentious. Please review our policy on such articles for more information]]. Please also be aware that if no one has taken note of the incident and given it coverage in reputable sources that it would be improper to include it, even without considering the rules about biographies. I sincerely urge you to reconsider your approach and take the time to become a familiar with the issues involved. Further reinsertion of the claims will be reverted and if you continue to push the issue by edit warring that the article may be protected from editing and/or you may be blocked. Thank you for your time and understanding. Vassyana (talk) 19:48, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
