I've got a question. From what I understand, there are 5 main divisions/sections. Hence, why Hayate's group was Section Six. So has it been said anywhere in particualr what those sections/divisions are?
I'm guessing at the following:
#1 Ground army forces
#2 Naval Ship forces
#3 Disaster Planning and Humanitarian Division
#4 Engineering division?
#5 - ??? (Maybe there is a division for Enforcers/Agents ?)
If there is no canon for them, has anyone dealt with this in a fanon way?

Remember that the TSAB/Administrative Bureau is basically an interdimensional security force formed by several administrated worlds.
1) Air force
2) Ground force
- Battalion 108 belongs here.
3) Sailing Force - It seriously says that, but we all know they mean the navy.
- Fate works as an Enforcer under the Interstellar Navigation Bureau which is part of the navy part of TSAB iirc Three aces of the ground, sea and sky, so I'm assuming Teana [in Force] would be here.
- Subaru [in SSX] is part of the reallylongtitlethatiforgetexactly uhhh Security Harbour Force Disaster Rescue and Relief Second Team, which sounds like it belongs here. Or my brain is frying and thinking that Disaster Management is something else.
4) Medical Center - sup Shamal
5) Database -> Infinity Library - Midchildan, but affiliated with TSAB, I think....
6) Intelligence Department - Woops, forgot this. Sorry, Verossa!
I guess the engineering thing could be a different section, but it seems only willing higher ranked mages or special cases would be able to get a special device made specifically for them. Or they could be pro like Subaru and Teana and craft their own devices. Then there's, uh, Shario [s]who likes to create/tweak WMDs.... Anyway, the majority of TSAB uses Storage/Armed Devices now, depending if you pick Belkan or Midchildan magic, so you get the standard/mass produced models. :V

Actually they kind of did explain it at the end of the A's anime, too, when she was telling Zafira that her smaller puppy form didn't drain mana as much. Makes sense if you apply it to her human child form, really.

This was a timeline I put together from the anime, manga, and the Japanese wiki. I haven't included Sound Stage information yet. The Japanese seem to have a few extra ways of telling specific dates, via some timelines in magazines and sound stage material.
For the most part, this should be roughly accurate, although I made a few educated guesses here and there. I tried to only really include the more important information, leaving off minor stuff. I also tried to break it into season chunks, as it made a bit more sense to me
If something seems a bit off, or you have a source that better identifies something, let me know. I'd eventually pretty it up and add it to the Nanoha wikia and/or FAQ thread.
462 (Old calender) - Dimension dislocation that devastated several worlds
225 BC - Age of Ancient Belka, the age of the Saint (analysis of Vivio's DNA can tell time!?) And yes, it's BC as this was stated to be 300 years ago, so 225 before the year 0, approximately. Would be nice to know what year the old calender ended at.
75 BC - TSA is founded, begins to root out mass-based weapons and regulates Lost Logia (Fate says that was 150 years ago in StrikerS ep14,) This founding is in response to the Mid-Childan wars that utilized mass-based weapons, as a way to switch over to magic-based civilization.
0 - TSA establishes their main branch in space, and ground HQ on Mid-Childa (3 old admirals critical in this time)
15(or earlier) - Gil Graham saves an Administration Bureau clerk
29 - Clyde Harlaown born (assuming the A's sketch that he is 25 at death is correct)
33 - Lindy born
32-34 - Alicia born? (she could be 5-7 years old; JP wiki tends to think 5)
35 - Regius joins the TSAB (Auris to Hayate "he's been in the TSA for 40 years")
39 - Precia is the 3rd director of Central Science & Development Bureau when she is exiled due to failed experiement; Alicia(5-7 years old) is presumably killed

62-63 - Fate born as a 7 year old girl?

64-65 - Yuuno finds & loses Jewel seeds, goes to Earth and seals one, gets injured on second (he meets Nanoha
First Season - Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha
Season 1 and 2 take place entirely with the year 0065 (Nanoha, Yuuno, Fate 9, Chrono 14 depending on birthday? I'm assuming everyone goes up an age sometime during these two seasons)
65 - Caro, Lutecia Born; technically could be Erio, but he was a clone, so his true birth date is unknown.
65 - A woman (Due in disguise?) seduces a priest to steal the shroud of the saint; genetic experiments begin on it
67 - Zest, Quint Nakajima die, & Megane Alphino captured
67 - Reinforce Zwei born, Hayate meets Carim shortly after that(ep4, "8 years ago")
67-68 winter - Nanoha's is seriously injured (2 years after she came to the Bureau), Hayate spends some time in the hospital with her as her own legs recover
69 - Teana's brother, Tiida, dies (Tiida 16, Teana 10)
69 - Vice accidentally shoots Laguna, his sister
69 - Vivio born in a lab (same clone problem)
69 - Fate gets S rank, Erio is taken from his family by some group; might be TSAB or someone else
71 - A's Epilogue (6 years later)
71 - Caro kicked out of her tribe, she's taken in by a TSAB shelter some time after
71 - Fate finds Erio locked up in a straight jacket, takes him to a housing facility, becomes his guardian; although technically Lindy is Legal guardian ("became guardian not too long ago" with a note about Erio's 6th birthday)
72 - Fate becomes Caro's Guardian
72 - Chrono and Amy are married, waste no time in popping out kids (the picture in Strikers makes the two kids appear to be at least 3; shotgun wedding?)
73 - Zest and Lutecia rescue Agito
73 - Erio is at the Main office housing facility until age 8, but it sounds like Fate's been teaching him magic for awhile ("Since before I can remember, she would do a lot for me")

Don't know where else to turn but here, considering the old wounds still festering amongst the Nanoha Fanfic section.
I hear that someone, somewhere released official height data for Nanoha & company. Is this merely an unfounded rumor?

I do not know whether or not it is official. The art style looks pretty close to the manga art, so it could very well be. When it was posted in the image thread, there was a small discussion about some heights seeming off and whatnot. I personally feel that even the image is unofficial, it's a pretty good estimate as to the character heights. While some people are missing, it shouldn't be too hard to guesstimate the height with visuals from the anime and manga. Just be careful of perspectives.
