Improve search, regarding double letters
One of the commonest spellings of names which contain double letters, such as my surname, Mabbett, is to omit one if the letters.
Search for neither "Andy Mabbet" nor "Andy Mabett" finds my ORCID record.
The search algorithm should handle such cases.
Thank you for your suggestion to improve the ORCID registry.
We have submitted this iDea — improving fuzzier searches — for consideration in our next round of projects and will update you when we have further information on it going forward.

Yes, exactly so. Thanks.

Thanks for your idea.
To clarify, your suggestion is to offer fuzzier searches so that either "Mabett", "Mabbet", or "Mabet" may return "Mabbett" as a possible result -- is that correct?
