I understand your points. My changes were just something I did for
myself, as I don't want to edit the config files every time I change the
interval for testing purposes. I'm not an usability expert, so creating
good UIs is difficult for me.
Same with me.
I someone tells me exactly what the UI
should do, I can probably code it.
I can see whether our designers have an idea. I wouldn't hold my breath
for too long, though, it might take a while.
