A big thank you to all my friends, who keep my niches alive in these times! I don´t want to name the persons, but i really appreciate your help to keep my niches alive. I can´t post, comment or change anything at tne moment, but I am still alive through you :-) PS: When I read all the discussions about plagiarism, downvote, behaviour and so on, I am a little disappointed, because my articles, which I added to narrative at the beginning phase in April with good values are a peanut problem...

So I just keep it short because someone asked. And I know it's been issued before. I just sent my last article; https://www.narrative.org/post/there-will-be-blood And it received immediate downvotes in less than 3 mins! and it's just 7 people. I think there is an abuse going on the platform. And somehow some automation, like a bot. If you want to know more and track those 7 downvote you can check this post, which my post refered to it;...

First off, I'm perfectly aware that a working formula is already there for the purpose but, inspired by what @Brian Lenz and @Slaz said in another post , I give my 2c on this. In order to have a "smoother" disappearing of trending posts from the Discovery panel, I suggest that the post position could be proportional to at least three factors: rating, upvotes, time span. To be more precise, I imagine something like this: rating * upvotes * (1 / (1 +...

This morning, one of my posts was at the top of the discover panel. Just a few minutes later it was completely out, replaced by pieces with only a fraction of that engagement. I get that this panel is intended for discovering, and that the age of the post can have a weight, but a sudden disappearing, from top to out, seems just wrong, since the article which was on the top was recent and still trending. Before: A few minutes after:

I just spotted a couple more stolen articles this morning. It's ridiculous for community members to have to waste time on this - and who knows how many stolen articles slip through the cracks and earn rewards? Universities routinely run anti-plagiarism checks on student papers. This is standard, off-the-shelf software that does require running manual searches. All posts should be screened for plagiarism.

Having made 1 or 2 mistakes when removing posts from one of my niches in the past, and not being able to correct my mistake, it has occurred to me that a moderator with bad intentions could effectively destroy a niche by removing all posts from it, immediately removing the niche owner's 10% rewards for those posts that month and forever after. It's not enough that we can petition to have a bad moderator removed from their position; we need to ensure that the damage they could do can be...

I can't believe this niche name was approved. This was approved in May 2018. I'd like to think that, today, such a niche name would be rejected, but I have no confidence in the wisdom of the crowd. Limit niche names to 60 characters. This just looks ridiculous. It looks even more ridiculous at the top of a post when you're reading the post.

An idea, After reading the announcement that Travala is partnering with Priceline: https://blog.travala.com/trava...-provider-priceline/ I think Narrative would be a good match for a content feed within Travala. Since Narrative has travel related niches, and beautiful photography of destinations, these niches could be imported into Travala's site and product as a kind of widget or feed. A referral tag, distinct for Travala, could be appended to the narrative post links on the Travala site,...

There is a lot of real estate not being used on the Niche profile page. Right beside the Niche owner photo, there could be a Niche owner bio. There's enough space there for 250-300 words, probably. It would make a nice addition to any Niche to be able to get the know the Niche owner a little more personally by seeing a bio with potential links to social media and web properties they may own. When Niche moderators are elected, their bios could be added to the page, as well.

If you want to support this post effort and engage in discussion on the platform, you can upvote and/or comment here . Reviving an idea I think I first saw voiced by @Garden Gnome Publications: fire sales for less popular niches. a) $75 minimum price tag kills subjects which will not be hugely popular b) $75 minimum price tag excludes some people from niche ownership, who would otherwise purchase less popular niches c) excluding less popular subjects can have a very big negative impact on...

Community Site Ranking has recently been removed. I know it may raise (and have raised) some issues, but I think that the upsides are much more, and that it's worth having it. Just removing it sounds a rough and unfair solution, especially disrespectful toward people who contributed till now. I know we're here to help and ask, not for a race. Nevertheless, having a ranking - like many other large and popular communities - it's worth for a number of reasons (some of them already mentioned by...

I've down-voted many posts for AUP violations (copyright violations). Sometimes it's hard to see the original source. The violator may have cut sections from several different articles. They may have slightly changed the wording to frustrate searches. They may have stolen an image and altered it. I think it would make life MUCH easier for the Tribunal if I could include an explanation of the violation, along with links to the original source(s).
