1) is a coding issue, therefore nothing i can do
2) My collaboration with SI is to update the playable divisions ONLY (1st, 2nd, CP). Since i become HR, 4 years ago, i created every single regional division (20 x 18/20 teams- and i try to keep them updated until the database lock, on early September) and created hundreds of new teams, stadiums, cities, referees etc, added league histories since the regional leagues were created, even though i didn't have to do it, and actually advised not to do it, because it's a very time consuming, and only one person from the entire research team, can do all these tasks, the one in charge of the database, and that's me.
Suddenly a 8k people database became a 26,5K people database
I'm also the researcher for 90% of the premier league teams, more than half 2nd league teams and dozens of CP teams. My weekends are basically being on a bus/train going north to south watching games, with expenses/tickets bought with my own money.
All this, even though i have a job (we- research team - aren't SI employees) and not having holidays since i became HR.
My summer holidays from my job is to be sitting on a chair updating the FM database, on most deadlines, i stay awake 26-28h straight updating the database, not even sleeping. I've had a burnout 2 years ago, never complained, kept working like nothing was worrying me, just to provide all the best possible database to FM fans, because i like what i do, but i don't have time to do anything else in my life.
Last year, i was asked to add youth leagues. I could only have added the1st and 2nd tiers, and it would be more than enough, after all, regional leagues are never going to become a priority, there aren't even youths created from those levels.
I added a few regional leagues, some aren't even with the correct structure, like Porto, because it is not a priority. This year i didn't even have the time to update u19 regional divisions, only updated the 1st and 2nd league leagues.
Plus, most u19 regional division structures are published after my database lock.
So, i'll keep focusing on my priorities, the playable divisions. The rest, i will update IF i have time It's not laziness, or even discrimination. I'm doing way beyond the agreed collaboration with SI, but i do have personal life and professional life besides Football Manager
PS: Besides the research work we do, we also coordinate a whole team, we make tests, teach hundreds of candidates, and correct their flaws. Then we need to take a closer look on how they are doing, to avoid mistakes like Tó Madeira.
Helping 50-80 people, including 30 new guys every year, also slows us down (HRs). All to provide more reliable data of playable divisions.
