Q: Are you Matt Skiba?
A: No. I am in no way affiliated with Matt or anyone in any of his groups/sideprojects. This is a fan site with content found on the web.
Q: Do you know where I can find the real Matt Skiba?
A: His twitter account is @MatttSkiba
Q: OMG You totally stole that photo/Erased the watermark on a picture you posted/Are generally a bad bad person!
A: Please be advised that all content you see on this blog was found on the internet. In the unlikely event that I am posting my own personal photos, I will tag them as such. Otherwise everything I post, you too can find on the internet. Sometimes credit is removed from photos, or absent entirely, but that is the way the web works. I do not personally remove credit. I do not photoshop off watermarks, I do not crop off artist logos. If you do not like the way my site is run then I urge you to A) Stop looking at it and B) Don’t follow me.
Q: I see the photo of a photographer/fan I know and there is no credit/I see my photo and there is no credit!
A: Message me. My inbox is currently set to you needing a Tumblr account to message me, but rest assured if you contact me about this in a civil manner, it will be handled respectfully. I can either add credit, replace a photo with credit on it, or I can remove the offending post entirely. But please note that the way Tumblr works means even if I remove something, the reblogs will still be there. Please also be advised that I will obviously require proof of the photos source.
Q: Do you follow back?
A: Not always. When I have time I browse through the followers of fyeahskiba and follow back the ones with content I like. This does NOT mean I saw your blog and disliked it. It probably means it got lost in the sea of new followers I get each week (and am grateful for, as a sidebar.)
Q: I sent a question and you didn’t reply to me!
A: I only answer Alkaline Trio/Heavens/The Hell/Matt Skiba related questions publicly. If you send me a compliment or a critique I will often send back a private thank-you or reply, but sometimes not. Please try and understand that I have a life outside of this blog and I don’t always have time to respond. But I will always try my best.
Q: Why didn’t you post my submission?
A: It was bad quality. It was a link to your own post/blog. It was a really ugly tattoo or you aren’t following this blog and I won’t advertise for you if you don’t have the common decency to at least be following me before asking for a favour.
