Collecting skin information

Heiya, there is no need to change the setting to collect the skin information. As long as it is set to "auto" BumbleBee will do this automatically if the MW is capable of providing the information. Skin collection does not work for MW <= 1.17.x in any case. Thank you and cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 19:07, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Changes to data collection intervals

Is there a special reason why you change the data collection interval of website to values which appear more than peculiar at first sight? I bet there is a reason but currently I do not get the magic. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 22:48, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Editing high use templates

It's cool you've taken an interest in template editing, but I'd like to suggest you use /test templates to play around with them rather than editing the main template directly. Editing a high use template causes all the pages it's used on to be rebuilt and clutters the edit log as well as sometimes breaking a lot of pages, which is not a very big deal, but it's better to test somewhere safe. I've moved your changes to Template:Skin/test, you can edit there and use preview on a few pages with {{Skin changed to {{Skin/test to see how your changes work. --ete (talk) 22:23, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Please stop manipulation settings for skin collection

Thank you. While we are at it: You are welcome to answer in case someone communicates with you. Avoids blocks and crocodile tears. --[[kgh]] (talk) 20:48, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

What's up with your edits to skin data? [1]. I see now that you have been warned before. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 16:31, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
I doint really know but I thought we can edit and change it it. should I stop turning it on and leave it to admins to do it. Paladox2014 (talk) 16:33, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
I ask because I've reverted that same edit a second time. If you added it the first time, and I reverted it giving a reason as of why it was wrong, there's no point in adding it back again. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 16:46, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

User page?

Could you please add some content to User:Paladox2014 to introduce yourself? 🐝 thingles (talk) 12:49, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Ok I have now done that. Paladox2014 (talk) 16:53, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
Admittedly, I just had a jolly good laugh. :D --[[kgh]] (talk) 16:55, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
