I've noticed that the search seemed to have regressions with the changes that were put into place roughly 2 weeks ago. The full-text search for organizations that was previously working no longer works. 

Here is an example (easy to find more if you have some sort of autocomplete selectbox)

Searching for "moovw" or "moovwe" will not find "moovweb"

Here's a search for "moovw"

vs the full search for "moovweb"

Hi Kristjan, the full text search can be delayed a bit sometimes. We regenerate changes(Deltas) every hour.

We're continuing to experience issues with searching for organizations by name. Two examples:

MiniBrake - https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/minibrake#/entity
Voodoo - https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/voodoo#/entity

The API yields no results.

can you check now? We changed a bit the schedule and the refresh task.
Now http://api.crunchbase.com/v/3/organizations?name=voodoo&user_key= should return the voodoo (and other companies).
