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 > Dreadful8 votes
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.4 votes
Some users have experienced issues with infinite scroll, hence we had to roll-out a quick fix with pagination.
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.7 votes
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!15 votes

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.8 votes
At the moment our position is that American and English spellings have different usage based on demographics and locality. Hence the choice of best suited terms might be different. Please discuss…
Which application do you refer to?
Web and apps have part of speech filters. The extension doesn’t have it simply because we didn’t want to make too complicated for users.

Could you please send the screenshot of misbehaving ad to email@example.com?
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.4 votes
Have an option for 200 words per page. Flicking over the short 20-word pages to find one of 3,000 words is just daft!1 vote
The number of items per page has been changed from 15 to 50.
Please note that you can also use part of speech and topic filters to narrow down your word hunt.
When I search a word I often come across repetitions of the same synonym, which adds to my search time. I think it would just streamline the process to remove repetitions from a given search. That said, this is by far the best thesaurus I've every come across and I love it!1 vote
Thank you for your feedback! Unfortunately, we are not able to replicate the issue on both website versions. Could you please provide more details/steps that show the problem with repetitions in search log? Thank you!
