Narrative support niche vs Narrative 411 niche

Malkazoid ·
Hello... So the fine tuning saga of niche creation and appeals continues. JR brought this to my attention - the same user that proposed the Video Games niche, despite there already being a Gaming niche, has proposed a Narrative 411 niche, despite there being a Narrative Support niche already. In both cases, the questionable new niches were approved by the community. Both new niches now have appeals against them. For the Gaming vs Video Games, the case is pretty clear cut. Almost nobody...

As we head into future releases of the Narrative platform, we want your opinion about your experience thus far using Chaucer from a design perspective. While Chaucer is only focused on niches, we want to understand your experience to date. Tell us about.... Your initial impression of Chaucer? What actions feel confusing? What do you feel is lacking and could be improved? What do you like about the current Chaucer platform? What wouldn't you change? Our own @Matt Brooks...

A long list of Features that we would love to see in the future.

Now that we can type our content into the platform, we can get a bit more of a peek into the elegant look of the site, but also start to see the User experience design. This thread is not a complaint thread, but rather a constructive place to put your ideas in one area, of features you would like to see once the team rolls out the beta, and the designers have time for fine tuning I will start. I would love to see a built in photo editor, at the very least the ability to do final cropping...

Oh, now I'm trying to remember the THING that was missing when I was working on some drafts last week... and I can't remember it. This is may or may not be it, but one thing that's really needed is when choosing three niches for our content, we need search to look at niche names and descriptions. I've had to open two separate tabs when drafting content so that I can use the search bar to look for appropriate niches because some niches do not have intuitive names and the relevant information...

This is awesome, and helpful (especially since some of the suggestions get buried inside long, intense discussions and are hard to surface). Another way to make formal feature suggestions is to use the actual "suggestion" feature in this community. If you do that, then it can actually be "voted up" by other community members and it may help surface ones that are popular. To make a formal "suggestion," click the big green POST button. Then choose "support topic." On that page, for topic type,...

How about a niche suggestion tool? Just look at the content I wrote in the box and tell me which niches fit. Also, why only three niches? One of my frustrations with Steemit is I can only have five tags for a post. Why? If my content matches fifteen different content categories, why can't I tag it for all fifteen categories? I tend to write long posts so five tags doesn't cut it. On Narrative, a post may only fit into one niche. Fine. But what if it fits into six or seven? What harm would it...

@Garden Gnome Publications I think that the three niche limit might have something to do with rewards, not necessarily for the content creator, but for the moderators and niche owners. At least, that's the most likely explanation my brain could conjure. Publishing content in too many niches would dilute the rewards for each niche the same content appears in. If it was just about tagging, I would agree that there would be no good reason to limit how tags to just three. But because of the...

That makes sense. I wonder if the end user who is not a niche owner or moderator will understand that. That's the kind of thing that needs to be communicated at the user level. Knowing that, as a user, I can choose the owners and moderators I want to reward.

Yeah, the thought literally had never occurred to me until you asked the question, and then I realized what a responsibility it is as a content creator - and as an owner and moderator - to build relationships to foster mutual success. Those of us here in the alpha who actively post here in the community forums (or at least commenting on suggested niches) have a bit of a head start on the whole thing. If I was torn between several niches for my third niche for any given piece of content, I...

I think it could be argued that as a user experience, having too many tags means the same content can just end up getting plastered everywhere, and the platform could look quite repetitive. Especially in the early days.

Yeah, then you run the risk of creating user silos where early adopters support other early adopters and leave the rest behind. We certainly wouldn't want to create an aristocratic echo chamber. I don't think it would serve the platform well. @Emily Barnett , that's a good point. I think it could end up looking like a content farm, especially early on, if we're not careful.

Re: A long list of Features that we would love to see in the future.

Christina Gleason ·
@Garden Gnome Publications It's human nature. But I don't think the risk of an echo chamber is really that high. We all have a fixed limit on the number of niches we can own, and most of the time, we're probably not going to have the luxury of "knowing" the relevant niche owners, even one out of three.

With regard to photos, I'd like to be able to right and justify them. Also, the ability to include tables would be nice. And a place to include a footer so that all personal journal entries can have the same footer material without having to copy/paste it every time. In fact, being able to store multiple footers (one for each different type of post, for instance) would be nice.

I'm not sure if this has been addressed already, but if it the system doesn't, I'd love to see a Narrative Original Content checking tool. I'm sure a lot of people might re-upload content from their own blogs, and while I don't have an issue with it (as long as it's still relevant) I'd also been concerned if people are uploading content from other people's blogs or online articles and claiming that content as their own to earn NRVE. I imagine some moderators will do plagiarism checks, but...

This is a great suggestion. Some niche owners may not want duplicate content even if the content creator owns that content. This would give them the ability to check it quickly and reject content that doesn't meet Niche guidelines.

How should a normal niche owner be able to check if the content creator created the content himself or used someone else's? It's simply impossible to do within an acceptable amount of time. In my opinion every content creator must be held responsible for every upload, there is no other realistic option.

Re: A long list of Features that we would love to see in the future.

Agreed. If someone sends a DMCA notice for stolen content, Narrative will act on it in whatever manner they've determined, which likely won't involve the niche owners or moderators. It is not within the scope of owners or moderators to run plagiarism checks.

Having used Copyscape in my work, it's untenable to expect owners and/or moderators to run every piece of content through Copyscape - which won't help with visual content that requires a different online tool. Some people already own 5 niches - and may soon own 10 - and have applied to be moderators on even more different niches. Not to mention that many of us intend to be content creators as well, and have actual day jobs too. Copyscape also isn't perfect, especially if you're writing an...

I agree with the sentiments above about needing a copyright check for content / images. It should definitely be high in the priority list since it seems like a ripe opportunity for abuse since people can easily earn rewards off of other peoples content. Along with that, if someone is found to have plagiarized, their reputation should take a serious hit to discourage it from happening again.

I agree there need to be safeguards for blatant plagiarism but pictures have a lot of contingencies such as art curation. I've seen the power of much more popular pages crediting and re-posting another persons art that resulted in real world sales and commissions for that artist. I for instance, own a high end fashion niche. Unless I'm flying to Fashion Week or get invited to every personal showing there's no way to take only original pictures. In fact, I've had designers thrilled I posted...

Yes, that's a good idea. This would also go a long way to recruiting academics. Being able to cite a source with a mouse click and choose the style (Chicago, MLA, APA, AP, etc.) would be an incredible add-on.

@MichelleG Very informative. Thanks! @Bryan I want to avoid potentially influencing anyone’s feedback.

I also believe that the brand needs more consistency, as many of the CTAs and elements are visually competing for attention. I’ve already put...

Hello, I appreciate you adding the "already voted on niches.". It is very important for people to quickly and clearly see what ideas have been voted down or accepted. As it is now you have to click on the "already voted niche" to see if it was rejected or accepted. Id like to see them different colors or text to show which have been Rejected and which idea is a current niche.

The inconsistent breadcrumb use should probably be taken care of. The niches screen should have some filtering and sorting, perhaps with an inline search always present in the filter bar. The up for auction / active / under review could probably be replaced with some nice looking distinctive icons and have a legend at the top of the page. When you look at a niche and see the various statuses like ballot (new niche), auction (started), auction (ended), etc. I think the time stamp for every...

My experience comes not only from being a social media user (which most of us can wave our hand to lol), but also from working in the design industry for over 10 years.

In my opinion, Chaucer was a great prototype for the extremely basic functionality of the bottom layer of Narrative. As we work into beta, I think...

Re: Narrative support niche vs Narrative 411 niche

Brian Lenz ·
In my opinion, the two niches are completely different. One is "Narrator Support", which is clearly about support for anyone using the Narrative platform (Narrators). This can include readers, content creators, niche owners, moderators, etc. "Narrative Niche 411" is focused purely on niches. As such, I think it clearly qualifies as a sub-niche that can stand on its own.

Re: Narrative support niche vs Narrative 411 niche

Brian, I understand your reasoning, but then I have to ask, what occurs if the sub-niche starts providing support outside of merely Niche support? Do I then have a claim to the tribunal? And does this mean that the Narrator Support Niche can also be used for Niche Ownership support?

Re: Narrative support niche vs Narrative 411 niche

Brian Lenz ·
Hi @JR , that could technically be a concern for any niche. There would be nothing to stop someone from cross-posting a piece of content to both niches, as well. Keep in mind that content creators choose the niches, not the niche owners or moderators. Content creators will likely centralize and focus their content on the more popular niches over time, so this is where good niche promotion comes in. If your niche is successful, it will stand tall as the obvious place to post Narrative support...

JR, my guess is that the broader niche wins out in this sort of scenario, in most cases. Because a post about with a niche tip is very likely to post to both the niche 411 niche, and your Narrative Support niche? Especially, as Brian mentioned, if you do your promotion well and everyone gets into the reflex of posting all Narrative information to Narrative Support.
