You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Silkski. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period. Additionally, users who perform several reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. When in dispute with another editor you should first try to discuss controversial changes to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. Should that prove unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. Please stop the disruption, otherwise you may be blocked from editing. Boleyn2 (talk) 19:47, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
Hello....excuse me if I seem to have started an editing war. I was not trying to. I was only correcting the mistakes you suggested and adding what Mr. Silkski asked me to. I am his publicist and was trying to only make the page better. I do not know who else was making changes. It seems like I was the only one, so I do not understand how I was engaged in a war with someone. You stated that the article is written like an advertisement, I was hoping that I could correct that so that the page would be more appropriate. I am kind of new to this so give me a suggestion. Again my intentions were not to be involved in an editing war...sorrry. --L. E. Evans 02:00, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Hello. The main problem was the removal of the tags, which still apply. To address the orphan tag, see if Silkski is mentioned in other articles, and create a link to his article in them if he is. Once there are five or so, then the tag can be removed. I'm afraid the language throughout sounds like it's written by a publicist (no offence, it's well-written!) and doesn't sound like an objective, dispassionate encyclopedia article. To address this, read through some articles on other musicians. There's still a lot to be done in this area, not just the odd tweak. The inline citations tag shouldn't be removed, as there aren't any as yet. If you have trouble adding them, just put a source for the information (newspaper name with date, book, website etc.) in brackets after the fact, and I'll correct it. I know this might be difficult if your source is the artist himself, but there needs to be verifiable references. In terms of the notability tag, please see WP:MUSIC and WP:Notability (people) and put on the article's Talk page how he meets the criteria.
Apologies for not explaining this fully earlier and I hope you continue to edit on here. The reason I've been keeping an eye on this article is that after a couple of years on here, it was kind of obvious that this was written by the artist himself or someone close to him, and although there isn't an outright ban on this, it's highly discouraged. Bear in mind that the tags are there to show what needs to be improved, and not as a deletion notice; they are meant only to be constructive.
Hi....Well I wanted you to read the article Silkski over to see if it still sounds like an advertisement. I have made a lot of changes since you added that tag. I am hoping that its sounds more neutral. If it does, would you please so kindly remove that one tag...I would try to correct the other mistakes also.... I am still collecting strong resouces. (have not added them yet)
Thanks, --L. E. Evans 08:40, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Silkski_promo_'09.png
Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Silkski_promo_'09.png. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? feydey (talk) 14:31, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
File copyright problem with File:Silkski_promo_'09.png
Thank you for uploading File:Silkski_promo_'09.png. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.
If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.
