I've noticed during the translation that in the BASE section are names of many countries, i.e.

Zimbabwe{text key='base+geolocation_country_name_ZWE'}
Where are they used and what for?
Could they be used for
specifying the names of the countries during registration/signing up process of members?

Best regards, Mike.

Michal Nowak, this list of countries belongs to "Advertisement" plugin.

But these entries are not part of advt plugin. These are added to the core during installation.

Thanks for your answer.
Do have any ideas? Can they be used for any useful purpose?

Yes, but it depends on what purpose you wanted it to be used, sir.

Well, I'd like to use it for setting up a profile question for all registering users.
I'd wish to add a single choice, dropdown question, such like: "What is your country of origin?".
AS far as I know there are many oxwall's users who would be interseted in such type of a question.

Thats not the easiest one to be done in Oxwall. Oxwall core is not still suitable for that.

Purusothaman Ramanujam, yes I have noticed that too and  reported to developers. They will move it out from base within one of the next builds.

Michal, currently you can't enter more then 31 values into "list" type of fields. Explanation why this happens this way can be found here : http://www.oxwall.org/forum/topic/379.

We are planning to change this in future, since we understand that having the full list of countries is important.

Thanks for your time. I hope that the Oxwall team will be able to manage with this task.
