Thank you very much for the detailed information and feedback.
The search looks at information in the event Heading, Details and Keywords. "Space" did seem to turn up the correct results. I updated the Keywords for Small Press Expo to include "SPX" and it now turns up in the search.
Unfortunately, the search will only be as the good as the data entered for each event. In this case we entered the basic event information that didn't include the acronym. We will add some information around this point to the FAQ. Good Idea!
Regarding your final point, yes anyone can submit any event at this point. We can't control who enters what event, as long as they are a registered user, but we can and do monitor and will remove "bad/inaccurate" events. Currently, the claim button will only appear if Geekcal.com staff enter the event. For other events that need to be claimed users would need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
. We will add this to the FAQ as well.
Thank you again for all the detail and feedback.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
