Bug Description

The list of teams is getting longer, we need some way to categorise them. Continents might be a good start.

Or maybe break them up along the same lines as the regional membership boards

I think this is going to be pretty hard as I don't think that this data is currently stored anywhere..

we could regroup the team list by countries. What do you think? That's very easy and does not need a db-schema-change.

The only problem is that almost all teams are from a different country… if you leave out the US, Spain and a very few others. I'm not opposed tough to implement this as a first step.

Thomas Bechtold (toabctl) wrote :

so let's add a continent-field to teams/models/.py and regroup the team-list by continent. if the team has no continent, there will be a category "unknown continent".
What do you think?

Only problem is that every team has to set the continent.

No objections from me. Teams will set the continent over time. Shall we make it a choice field?

Let's go for adding a continents list and a ManyToMany field, so teams that are on two continents (or regions) can add it easily.

Why should we use a manytomany db-field for continents? Do you think there will be more continents in the future?:-)
Or do you want to a list with regions (and continents are also regions)?

Michael Hall (mhall119) wrote :

I think the idea was to allow a team to list more than one continent. Though with the exception of Russia, I don't know of a loco that this would apply towards.

Turkey too, maybe others, I don't know.

Looks like probably more than 30 countries are split over several continents: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_spanning_more_than_one_continent

Michael Hall (mhall119) wrote :

Most of the ones on that list are predominantly in one continent, and have only a small amount of territory in another. But certainly there are at least a half dozen that do not easily fall into a single continent.
