I really like the website layout and frequently use the sites online dictionary. While working on my story I bumped into a few Dramatica Terms that seem to have errors concerning their definition.

Here’s an example of some the possible errors I found in the sites online dictionary.
1. For the term Conceptualizing it says:
Type Developing a Plan ↔ Conceptualizing.

Isn’t Developing a Plan a layman’s term for Conceptualizing? Should Conceptualizing’s dynamic pair actually be Conceiving?
2. For the term Speculation the definition is listed as –
an extension of probability into the future
Should not the definition for Speculation be an extension of Possibility into the future?
3. The term Result is listed as a Class.
Class Process ↔ Result

Shouldn't the term Result be listed as an Element?
Also the synonyms seem to be omitted for this term.

These possible errors are minor. But, the errors cause a break in my workflow because I check to see if it is my misunderstanding of the term or an error in the definition.
The first time I ran into an error I let it go. But, in continuing my work, I bumped into a couple of others. There may be more errors. I don’t know because my goal is not to find errors on the website. However, I thought it best to bring it to your attention.

Lastly, Could you add a search bar to the website?

I really like Dramatica and its new website, and looking forward to the PC version of Dramatica Story Expert.

Thanks for catching those errors. We'll fix them as soon as possible.

We're working on a search tool and hope to have that available in the not too distant future.
