Definitious is an online dictionary whose definitions are submitted and voted on by the online community. The community can "like" and "dislike" definitions that they read, allowing users to easily find quality definitions. Furthermore, the community can vote on definitions as being "helpful," "funny" or "poetic," giving users the flexibility to find definitions based on their mood or taste.
