How to add "College" information to NFL Players Database?

Sat Jan 12, 2019 5:51 pm

Hi! I'm a new contributer here ans I was wondering how I can add what colllege a NFL Player went to. Some players have their college in their json response but some don't, and I don't see a GUI or user interface to add College information. Please help! Thanks

Hi!

This can be done by using the "History" button at player level. If you find that some college teams are missing, you can ask to be added to the DB on the next post: https://www.thesportsdb.com/forum/viewt ... f=4&t=1808

The College data is actually probably from some import I did a while back. I will need to think about if there is a better way to add this info in the future as not all colleges are listed as Teams unfortunately. I've been thinking the same for soccer with the "Academy" they trained at and how to list that in the database.

For now I think its best to concentrate on getting the rosters up-to-date and player images. We can work on college and other data after that.
