Looks cool Smile
Please include an entry to alternative names or keywords such as a list: arsenalfc,arsenal-fc, arsenal fc, arsenal football club, gunners etc. Having these keywords present I guess it will be easy later to match the teams correctly Smile
Keep us posted

As this is under heavy development get the feature requests in now Wink

Some questions:

How many fanarts are required?
What facts about the stadiums do we need?
What sports do people want?
Is live scores wanted?
How should the data be scrapped? (by week? by tvshow? by event?)
What artwork do people want for each team?
Different Language support?

For other sports football (soccer to those of you accross the pond) etc

Fanarts - at least 2, with the ability for users to add more
Stadiums - history, seating capacity, build date, previous stadiums.
Live scores - personally i'm not bothered about this, but if you have a reliable source they can be taken from for each sport.
Update / scrapping - probably once a week, don't want to overload the hosting.
Artwork - fanart, poster, logo etc or if you mean more like, stadium, club logo, players, etc
Fixture lists?

Formula 1 support please.

f1 as the show, each race season as a season and each event i.e australia as an episode (practice, quali, race etc as the same episode number). Basically the way it's currently set up if using the nfo's from the f1 thread.

Fanart, banners, posters, logo, thumbs, etc

If possible...
* Circuit info - description, history, images,
* Drivers - description, history, images,
* teams - description, history, images,

I have a shed load of f1 content nfo's / artwork etc, i'd be happy to upload to the site.

I'm a football (soccer in the 3rd world Tongue) addicted. For me I'd have to point only the main sports at first: Football,NFL,NBA,NHL,motorsports(?). Later, depending on the success and further tools developed I'd extend it for other sports.

City location and capacity should be enough. As a bonus maybe a history plot, gps coordinates (for integration with external map's applications in the future) and a small gallery.

(2014-12-23 17:51)zag Wrote:  How many fanarts are required?

I'd say 1 or 2 by sport and 1 or 2 by league. I'd love the possibility to have custom fanarts by competition such as the ones present in the zerozero (zerozero.pt) website/database (in small size unfortunately Sad )

They are but possible too hard to implement for now. I'd prefer, at this point only fixtures and next matches by competition/team

(2014-12-23 17:51)zag Wrote:  How should the data be scrapped? (by week? by tvshow? by event?)

Something like ~/Sport/Season/Competition (League vs Cup)/Round(a bit boarder than week/event as it can be a week fixture, group fase, a semi-final, a final)

(2014-12-23 17:51)zag Wrote:  What artwork do people want for each team?

Logo/badge,Home/away jersey, 3/4 fanarts max per team (one general - logo/stadium/Slogan), another historic (e.g. Historic team or club event), another more related to the present (e.g. Real Madrid fanart with Cristiano Ronaldo).

I would leave an entry for the team/competition anthem.

(2014-12-23 17:51)zag Wrote:  Different Language support?

Its a plus. I would only consider alternative languages to anything plot related.

Thanks for developing and starting the project. I'm open to develop some automation scripts to get info from various sites to feed the database if needed.
Please have also a look at this site: http://www.footytube.com/openfooty/
It can give you the info about the clubs/matches/videos in xml or json format

Cheers

Soccer is where I started and pretty easy to find information but can someone explain the League structure of American Sports to me please?

Specifically I am looking to include American Football, Baseball and Basketball. Googling for information has got me going round in circles Big Grin

How are the USA sports leagues structured? Do they have different divisions?
