YOUR REPUTATION GOING UP : ) OR NOT : (

Harj ·
A important part of your experience on Narrative is your Reputation. Your have a Reputation Score that is based on all of the actions taken by you a bit like in The good place (On netflix!! love it). : ) remember Eleanor Shellstrop! Anyway all content is rated based on your opinions, your reputation always influences Content Ratings. And how your content is rated impacts your reputation. (Still with me ?) This way your reputation reflects the actions you make, as well as how others perceive...

Improving Narrative messaging - we're being outdone by the competition

Malkazoid ·
Hello, I want to take a hard look at the core message being delivered by one of our main competitors: Sapien network. Their slogan, front and centre on their website, reads as follows: BOOM. Ours? CRITERION 1 : take away points Sapien gives multiple, strong takeaway points in one gulp. A) "Take back your Social Experience" is a call to action that immediately infers there is something to gain/retrieve from switching to Sapien. In comparison, "Welcome to the world's journal" gives us a word...

As a follow up, bonus consideration - Sapien has, right beneath it's tagline, a very effective boast of current activity that gives the immediate sense of an already active product. The following is elegantly and compactly laid out on a single line on their page 7860 POSTS CREATED 10855 COMMENTS MADE 2769 ACTIVE USERS 1070 ACTIVE BRANCHES 152 ACTIVE GROUPS 2324918 STAKED SPN ------------------------------------ We can't directly compete with this because we are in a limited functionality...

I hadn't heard about Sapien, but this is quite the detailed and enlightening read! I pretty much agree with your analysis of taglines. As for my 2 cents, I believe the whole line "The Content Economy" gives the impression that Narrative is aimed towards investors hoping to gain money in some way or another. I think Narrative should be marketed foremost as a democratic content platform that spreads it's revenue among it's contributors and in that regard, the term "Economy" may easily imply...

I agree @Slaz - the Content Economy is an attractive phrase in certain contexts. But not for mass appeal. It is too abstract, and doesn't make the content creator feel like it is immediately relevant to them. To us who understand the concept already, we get it that it means content creators will be part of an economy that they will benefit from. But for a newcomer, that phrase does not convey all that meaning at all. Instead, as you point out, it sounds like it is something for investors,...

All of this said, and messaging aside - from a aesthetic perspective, we're smoking Sapien. Their home page is not polished. Despite a slightly retro feel that may not appeal to everyone, the Narrative homepage has a distinctive style and speaks of attention to detail.

Agreed. While a bit abstract looking, Narrative's homepage layout feels unique and is easily distinguishable. For example, just looking at Narrative's newsletter header without reading the title and context of the email, will easily tell you it's from Narrative. Sapien's homepage on the other hand just looks like a dozen other crypto-related sites that try to be modern. They're even including those swirling vector thingamajigs on a dark blue-ish background in their header. It just screams...

Thank you both - we are in the midst of messaging refinement, so this couldn't have come at a more valuable time!

Hi all, I just wanted to drop in and add a bit of background from a technical perspective. In order to provide context, I need to first reiterate that the platform we are using here ( Hoop.la ) is an online community platform. It's really nothing like what Narrative is going to be. What we are using here is a traditional discussion forum to discuss ideas and share inspiration, which is quite different from the long-form content platform Narrative will be. Hoop.la has a primitive points and...

I think that you meant to post to the bitebtc topic.... Not sure what email address you are using. Those of us using GMAIL got immediate responses. Those using HOTMAIL never got a replay at all. Not sure which you use if either of them. Can you post over to the appropriate topic and I will continue to help you.

I think this makes a lot of sense. Thanks for taking the time to illuminate some of the details about reputation going forward. The people contributing a ton right now will reap the benefit through the 200k NRVE rewards....I think that is more than fair.

@Brian Lenz I appreciate you taking the time to explain this perspective. I appreciate what you are saying but here is another perspective to consider from the user's end, which imo is pretty important. 1. Yes, myself and others may have made an assumption that this forum goes to our reputation. But I have not come across where you communicate that it does not. Likewise I looked for clarification from the team on a thread that most of the core team had already posted on, so there really...

Thanks @Emily Barnett . You are voicing this in a way I believe represents the very natural concern every person who has been engaged in helping Narrative probably feels at this point. @Brian Lenz - thanks for the in depth explanation. It is helpful to know these things. Unfortunately there is a flaw in your approach. Fortunately (for me), it is a very easy one to communicate, so I won't have to expend too much effort doing so. I earn more money in the real world than any NRVE reward that...

Once again @Malkazoid we see things from a very similar vantage point. Thank you for taking the time to write this. As I said earlier in this thread, this is content. all of the community board is content. I believe your suggestion is very smart! If it is possible technically, all of the posts should be preserved as its own Niche and Narrative Genesis is an interesting name for it. I think you reiterate my points and expand on several of them very well. I am deeply insulted that no...

To the @Narrative Network Team , on a constructive and technical note, I think there is probably a way of analysing the data from this discussion forum, and translating it into one or more facets of Narrative platform reputation. The easiest, and I think smartest way, is what I proposed above: porting all of this content into a special archive niche, perhaps called Narrative Genesis. Then run the reputation algorithm on that niche in a 'historic' mode, to compute a reputation effect from a...

@Malkazoid , as a fellow founder, I never thought that we were currently accruing reputation points during this phase. My understanding was always that reputation will be important once we officially launch. To be honest, I thought you and @Emily Barnett were just going after the NRVE rewards during this trial period based on all of the activity I've been seeing / and were just super pumped about the project. Please try not to take this the wrong way, but I feel like what is really coming...

@Narrative Network Team , @Brian Lenz A simple proposal for a Narrative Genesis niche. 1) Each first post from this discussion forum site could be set up as a post in the niche. All subsequent posts in that thread could be ported as comments to that initial post. 2) Posts and comments could be likeable by members after launch, whether the likes from this forum are included in the ported Narrative Genesis niche or not. The ultimate, if technically feasible, would be to have historic likes...

Don't worry - I'm not taking it the wrong way. I know in my case, and I strongly suspect in Emily's case, that you are simply incorrect. Being wrong is not insulting to me I think I've articulated already that the important thing is to properly motivate people, to not miss good opportunities for the network, and to act in accordance with Narrative principles. Actions speak louder than words, in the end - and the actions of doomed ventures, in hindsight, always herald their demise, regardless...

Hi, Reputation: All the founders and patrons have spent months building the base layer-the core--the niches. Those that were most involved rose in the ranks and lead the way--The top 10-15 really did this. Harj, Emily, Malkazoid, and a few others really have given it their all. NOW I see we won't get this hard earned reputation, it will not transfer to the final edition of narrative. The newbie should not factor in this decision because they did not give money to narrative. They did not give...

Thanks Whitmal - I think I can safely say we all want to see Narrative succeed, and we've simply understood that that success requires our hard work, not just when the platform launches, but just as importantly, now. I'm glad you feel the same way! Thanks - this is valuable information and hopefully will start a good conversation on the matter. May I suggest you paste that into a new thread so it can be fully explored there? I know very little about crypto exchanges, and there are no doubt...

Well done @Malkazoid i would also like to add that there is plenty of money raised in both the initial ICO and the niche purchase that the team could hire someone on contract to actually port this content over to his suggested ownerless niche, prior to the launch of beta. And a further suggestion -- the money that is raised from this ownerless niche could be set aside as a contingency fund for any legal costs that arise, or for the first Narrative Conference. Honestly, the teams stance that...

Just looked at Bitebtc again. They want you to send a picture of a recent bill. NO GO! I can't stress this enough people. If you send all that information to them then you are trusting a No name exchange with all the information a hacker would need to steal your identity. Edited due to oversight. Apologies to team. I think Switheo is soon. Just wait.

Dear @Narrative Network Team I have been waiting for a response from you on this important thread. I have even attempted to prompt a response, over on telegram. Time is ticking on this thread; the reset is imminent. The team's radio silence is deafening! This raises even bigger concerns for me. Given the likes and comments on this page, the articulate commenting, and the private messages I have been receiving, I think it is fair to say a strong cross section of the community is not happy...

My guess is the Team is discussing this. With the intensity of feelings about this matter, it may feel as if more time has elapsed than actually has - @Michael Farris only posted 2 days ago that reputation would not be earned. And I introduced the idea of porting these discussions to a niche on the definitive platform, only 2 days ago. Add to this that about 80-90 percent of that 2 day period has been over a weekend, and I think there is a pretty good chance that the silence is still within...

I guess that's the other awesome thing about porting all this content to a niche on the platform: the decision to do so can be made well after any reset might take place - with no harm done. As long as all of this isn't thrown away, the reputation algorithms get applied to it at launch. Any reset of current activity points needs have no bearing... Every way I look at it, using all of this formative content on Narrative is an intuitive solution to multiple problems, including the difficulty...
