As of about 5 minutes ago I put the finishing touches on code to allow people to make changes to the location data.
This includes being able to move locations between regions, adding and deleting locations and adding and deleting regions.
If you delete a region it will also delete any locations hanging off it.
So those making changes should only use deletes as a last resort as this has implications for users that have selected a location for their location.
Moving a location between regions will not have any impact on users as the region will be updated for all users etc.
The plan is to also replace the current system of listing yourself, you will simply be able to type in your location and hopefully the system will be able to narrow it down so this should be a lot quicker and more efficient. Also finding assurers will gain the same ability to type in a location and the system will in turn the system will display the closest 100 assurers.
Currently people store their location against their user record, I’m planning to split this off into it’s own table so users can store multiple locations.
