I really like the Dramatica.com 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 dyn.pr. 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 dyn.pr. 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.
