Reply to "Confusion Over Niche Voting"

@Soňa, once you have won the auction for a niche, you can submit name and description updates, which are subsequently voted on by the community according to the same criteria used for new niches (not redundant and no TOS violations). Thus, the name and description is not locked in, so I wouldn't let it stop you from bidding on a niche that isn't quite phrased the way you like.

Thanks Brian. The clarification about revisibility of both the name and description is helpful. 

In light of this,  I don't think it will depress niche or overall value to have some arguably (and arguable not) optically imperfect names or descriptions transiently hanging about pre-beta. Folks can just all help each other out with descriptions.

Even though we're just carving up an idea space, or perhaps precisely because we're carving up an idea space, descriptions and labels traditionally impact perceived value which is I believe the root cause of some of the negative votes. 

but revisibility on the near horizon I don't believe this is a concern.

I'll be flipping some of my votes with this in mind.

Don't think there's really a need to impose a justification menu.
