I could, but that would make the problem go unnoticed. Also to have it set its
own color could cause it to make extremely similar colors. Making the pi chart
harder to read. I'd like to ensure the pi chart could be read by setting my
own colors and making sure that they are different from each other. When the
edit counter was still on toolserver, error suppression was switched on,
suppressing all error messages. Hardly anybody noticed any issues. The edit
counter was really broken though. So keeping error suppression off is the best
way to make sure things are fixed and programmed correctly.
