Idle curiosity, which I hope Michael or someone else may be able to satisfy; how does the database or site assign the primary team shown next to a player?
Clubs are listed in descending order of “activity”.
I’d better expand on that. By activity I mean the number of games you’ve played for the club in team events, plus the number of games you’ve played in its internal competitions.
If only it were so simple. Congresses come into it as well. Congresses don’t have to report your club, but they often do, and when one does your games in that congress will count toward the club’s activity. This is a bit arbitrary if you belong to three or four other clubs, and downright misleading if the club reported is one you haven’t belonged to in the last eight years. (This happens.) So activity counts aren’t entirely reliable.
To keep your list of clubs reasonably up to date, the system applies a cutoff. Clubs are shown only if they have appeared in your record in the last two or three years.
