This code adds new field to Django user model. It must be executed early as much as possible, so put this code to init.py of some application.

sberlotto:

manage.py sqlall and manage.py syncdb creates new column properly.

What is your problem? If your column doesn't exist aleready, write an ALTER TABLE command.

I don't understand the negative score, since this snippet is working well.

Hi, while this worked fine for adding a new field, I would like to go forward and know how to make this new field appear in the admin section.

If somebody give me an approach I'll be thankful! =)
