Hi, yes, I think this has been done, but assumed you meant to stat scores

Correct.  A high score list for each country is still the idea.  I was just thinking to speed up the process of collecting location data, some usernames/names are dotted on Google Maps that another member made a while ago.  I'll try find the thread..

I think the most important thing here is the scores, so this proposition will probably go to the way side. I think after awhile everyone knows where everyone is.

I know us Aussies would have a field day with an AU-based score list. There's already a lot of friendly competition between us, so that would only bolster it!

I'm with fippi and as an Aussie I have been been playing the who's who in the high score list trying to understand where I would stand in an Aussie high score list.
I have been thinking of suggesting something simpler though which is adding a country flag icon after the players name in the high score list. A point of interest in the diversity of the community from around the globe.
Perhaps this concept could be expanded to include a filter to order by country as well as by score, this way there is no maintenance of multiple high score lists, but provides a view by country grouping.
Just a thought
The code screws everyone equally

That sounds like a good iea! It could be an option in your own bio that you can manually add, and the database could just pull from that field. Saves the admins a load of headache

SMF (the forum software) has an extension that allows this. Should be very straight forward to pull this from the database and into the high score list also (depending on how the high score list is being build currently). Happy to help with any dev work if needed
