    Hi everybody, I thought I'd give you all an update on this one. 

    We've done a lot of work on this over the last couple of years, but this is the sort of project that is going to be ongoing pretty far into the future.

    Things that have been done:

    • Added the 'Report Issue' functionality to the website (in the navigation) where users can report duplicates that they come across
    • Added admin tools to merge duplicate Bands/Venues/Locations/Concerts when we find them or when a user reports them.
    • Created 'aliases' behind the scenes for Bands/Venues/Locations so that any duplicates that we merge won't pop up again in the future as duplicates.
    • We now verify locations against the external Geonames database to standardize them.
    • Implemented a location verification step after a concert is created to prompt the user to verify and standardize the location that they entered.
    • Reviewed all of the locations…

    Love this site so far! Great job overall with plenty of room to grow. Here are a few ideas from a design/UX standpoint.

    1. Generate a universal list for band names, venues etc so that when you enter new concert details the dropdown menu suggestions aren't the same band in 3 different spellings. For example, a band like St. Paul and the Broken Bones has a second instance as St. Paul & the Broken Bones. The only difference is the ampersand instead of the longform "and". It shows up like 2 different bands.

    Thanks for reading. I really do think this is a great website overall! Keep it going.
