  1. App for PC

    I think power thesaurus is fantastic sometimes I go through several different Thesaurus' starting with one word, in search of just the right alternative but when I found power thesaurus I found that wasn't necessary. The only problem is, I do most of my writing on my PC or with pen and paper. If I need to look up a word my go to is either my personal hard copy dictionary/thesaurus or my PC. However, as anyone with wifi knows a stable internet connection can't always be relied on. So, I just wanted suggest I'm not the only one that…

  2. Just wanted to say I love Power Thesaurus ♥

    Its so fantastic to have a no nonsense site aimed at power users.
    I have since installed the app and Chrome extensions and will be promoting to my friends!

  3. Please please focus on the quality of the results

    I'm an old user for PowerThesaurus where I use it to get fancy words for my research papers since English is NOT my first language. However, It is very clear that the quality of synonyms the past couple of months is getting worse. It's like Trump is suggesting the synonyms for me.

  5. Help to understand how strong a word is

    It would be really useful to know how synonyms are sorted in their "seriousness". Sometimes I'm just not sure if the word is too strong or too weak to use.

    Having some system (labels, numbers) to know would help.

    For example, I would arrange from weakest to strongest:

    Sympathize > Like > Adore > Admire > Love

    Chilly > Spooky > Worrisome > Scary > Dreadful

  6. Have shared entry for alternate spellings of the same word.

    It makes little sense to me that American and English spellings of the same word have separate entries with different results. For example, behavior and behaviour, or colour and color. These entries should be combined in my opinion.

  7. Reconfigure Parts of Speech

    The Noun and Verb filters should automatically include expressions, idioms and phrases (and phrasal verbs). I shouldn't have to click and review the list 4 times to cover all the possible verb or noun synonyms. If necessary, you could add "one-word noun" and "one-word verb" filters. Another option is to allow more than one filter at a time.

  8. Allow accounts so can keep track of upvoted words

    I love this service but sometimes I'll find a word I want, move on, and then have a hard time finding it again

    It would be nice to have accounts (optional) so users can:
    - view all upvoted (and, I guess, downvoted) words

     - this also encourages users to be more proactive about upvoting because it also acts as a bookmark (which helps the site's content)
    
    - Could possibly be connected to word maps which would be cool because it would encompass all the user's favorite words and even show connections

    • have an easier time adding new words because they…

    Jonah, thank you for your suggestion! The new version has most of the features you mentioned. The points system is being developed too, however it will not be public with more focus on actual user’s contributions.

    In regards to “have an easier time adding new words” – we will fix this right now (name and email should be saved in cookies and shown once you are back on a form).

  9. Allow users to suggest a definition that you might not have heard

    A "new" definition would have to be reviewed to make sure it's not bogus or just very uncommon.

  10. Create a page for each word that displays some top synonyms, top antonyms, and the definition

    Create a page for each word that displays some top synonyms, top antonyms, and the definition so you can see everything on one page.

    The new version which supposed to be online within a few weeks will have an opportunity to have an account with just one ad unit, search history, suggested terms and ability to mark synonyms as favorites moving them to the top for this user.

  13. Instead of having numbers for multiple pages show it as A-Z, and put it at the top.

    Sometimes I can't remember a word but I can usually remember what it starts with. If we could go to a page by letter instead of number it would be faster. Or at least expand the range of numbers so I can jump to like page 11 instead of clicking on each one.

  14. Include the ability to add topics to pre-existing words

    I know you can re-add the same word with the topics appended, but this is unintuitive and is also unclear as to how it should work in corner cases.

    I suggest an edit button appended on the right hand side of the column for each word, so as to allow the topics to then be corrected more intuitively.

  17. Place word definition on the same page as synonyms

    As it stands users need to follow a link to view word definitions. It'd be nice if the most common definition of a word could be placed on the same page as the synonyms.

  18. Include a “Combo Word Search" Feature

    Searching for 2+ Words Together
    would be great! I'd love to be able to search for COMMON synonyms between two related words. Perhaps you have this feature available and I have not yet discovered how to apply it successfully. I was looking for Ablution(s) synonyms, and hoped that by including/combining 1(or more) synonyms in my search, may add CONTEXT, FOCUS et al … Narrowing the search to more relevant, precise result(s) which is my goal. Example : Search <-Ablution & Purification -> Together for Common synonyms - Thank You for your time and consideration. Great Site!

  19. Remove or give the option to pagenate list

    Months back you were not pagenating and now you've reverted to old scripting. It was better when scrolling would generate new output. Having to click on the next page is lame.

  20. Automatically show the "quick view" of the first word, in the search suggestion.

    Currently, you have to hover the mouse over the word on the dropdown to have the quick view of this words synonyms. By automatically opening the quick view of the first word (which is most of the times the preferred result) makes the search lighting fast and real time, without the need to grab the mouse or press the "down" arrow.
