I would suggest you to remove this shitty GEO location tool from your service. More than 80% of the current set locations are wrong, country flags mostly get’s flagged (or set as unknown) and the staff there is just preposterous and Incompetent.
Newly some User did had a problem with their location. And everytime when I try to change a IP location by contacting them, they’re giving my data’s to other companies for some reasons.
Well I had some experiences what many of the locations are just set wrong, so it’s not even close to be on the real location for some reasons. Literally I tried once to update an location but it didn’t really go well.
how about updating an location? They’re mostly not even responding to you, always hits an update every month and suddenly, many wrong ones in this case. Just like they’re giving your data to other companies, when you try to reach the support out there.
Didn’t you think about other services like MaxMind, neustar, IpRegistry or RIPE?
I bet they’re way more profesional.
I think you don’t really know how the assigned system at IP2LOC actually works. If there’s a new IP address spotted on IP2Location, then they’ll set it “automatically” to the location. But suddenly, most of the location are not even close to the GEO locations somehow.
After the IP range was set to an location, then you need to contact them manually to update it.Well I also had some worse experiences there, that’s why I would also remove this service.
Nah… I’m talking about the geo location including region & city. The country is mostly correct, that’s right but many server administrators have the problem, that their server is wrong located into another country, city or region (e.g. teamspeak weblist, which does show many wrong entry’s). That’s kinda annoying to “try” fixing an location. I also don’t really understand why the region & city is included in teamspeak, that’s not even useful. However; I’m just trying to get this fixed.
Fine to hear
I’m having some trouble to EU locations
The main reason is, because the Servers are also addicted to IP2Location.com (check this thread) and you can’t disable it. That’s the main IP locate tool which is used by TeamSpeak and there’s no way to “disable it in my client”, however you’ve invented that.
Agree, it can’t be 100% accurate. But from my experience it has been good enough.
I still wish that if a client connects to a public server using non-route-able IP (like 192.168.x.x) the server would auto assign their region/country based on that of the server’s public IP. I’m not a fan of user’s seeing that someone is likely on the same local area network as the server because of unknown region indicator.
