    I'm not sure who to summon. If others should be summoned, I'm guessing one of you guys would know.

    Can we get rid of this list and go back to the very old way of doing this in which we simply typed the name of our team into the field?

    Because the menu seems like a tremendous pain in the ass for everyone, and at this point it's inadequate and dysfunctional.

    We haven't even been able to add all the teams for which BigSoccer has forums. We can't add all the new MLS teams. Nor most USL and NASL sides. That's crazy.

    I assume you can change or add fields to the profile page.

    Why not do this:

    1. Keep the existing club pull-down menu.
    2. But add a second blank club field that users can fill in themselves.

    Position that second option so it appears under the avatar where the existing club affiliation appears.

    --

    Can we do this? Is this a viable option?

    A better, if incomplete solution than the inconsistent one we have now.

    That.

    This system supposedly goes back to when each team had a Wiki-style page here.

    I agree. Time to dump it. Just allow people to add 2-3 teams as they want. This way, people could also add any NCAA team they wished.

    Yea it's kinda sad we can't get all the NASL or USL teams here so we might as well just go back to that.

    What am I doing here?!

    I agree, maintaining a proper list isn't working @Knave - let me see about changing this. I can't remember if there is a reason for setting this up the way it was, but I don't think so. The only nice thing about it is that it's a great way to spot spammers because they always select something ridiculous.

    In the meantime, I'll go through and try to get caught up - if anyone is jonesing, feel free repost your request below.

    Anyone else notice that mini-crash? I blame you people. I tried to add Atlanta and Minnesota and failed. I'm going to see about changing to user entered field.

    Talk to @Huss about it.

    I believe it had something to do with when each team had a wiki-style page, or at least that was the grand idea which was never fully implemented. Yes, at one time, each team had a wikipedia-style page with schedules/results, rosters and facts about each team. I believe this was circa 2008 or 2009. There was also a way to "kick" a thread which replaced the traditional 1-5 star system of voting for favorite threads, but I believe the "kick" was unrelated.

    So, uh, when I can change my club to Sacramento Republic FC?

    To make my defection complete.

    Right, @sitruc?
