My Personal Data

Note: if personal data is being stored using a secret database, then it is only visible to the user and to administrators.


Scent Marking

I fully respect, that some important contributors in the community argue, that small changes often "scent" like a Self-Marketing-Activity. I am somebody, that often changes things in pages. I add a dot where needed or just a line or a sentence, without having a "real" and significant input, that truly adds value. I am just kind of catalyzing, what others did.

I do not plan to change this, but invite you to erase my name from the statistics instead. Please address me directly if you want to offer advice on that issue. I am open for your suggestions.
