Narrative Blog Moved to Community Platform

MOLLY O ·
Happy Friday everyone! We just migrated the Narrative Blog to this community platform. Previously, we were publishing directly on our Medium site. Moving forward, we will publish on our own site first, and then import it into Medium. As of today, if you click on Blog on this Community site, you will now see the blog on our Community platform. The link to the Narrative Alpha (currently linking to Medium) will be changed in a future release. Of course, when "publications" are ready, Narrative...

Narrative Network Team - Releasing posts on Medium

Banter ·
This is just a suggestion. Can the @Narrative Network Team please create a topic in the appropriate forum whenever a new article is released on the Narrative Blog (Medium)? This way we can easily have a discussion about it here, rather than having to create a new topic from scratch each time.

Tips for Getting (Readers) Engaged with Your Content

Melanie Mathos ·
It's Valentine's Day, and love is in the air! But how do you get readers to share the love for your content? What exactly is “engaging” content anyway? Many use vanity metrics such as likes or favorites as a baseline metric. Some dive deeper to quantify by shares or comments. Others actually look at conversions that resulted from a piece of content. (Follows, signups, sales, etc.) The definition of engaging can encompass many factors. One of our favorite takes on the meaning comes from...

Cheating on "Inside Blogging" and strolling trolls

Vico Biscotti ·
Inside Blogging , a niche I had suggested, has two absurd bids from two clearly fake and brand new accounts, obviously coming from the same person. It's clear revenge for my appeal on BLOG. I was not going to buy the niche anyway, seen the unreliable scenario, but please stop this madness. There are already several fake accounts that can do anything and that we all know come from the same person. I can't believe they're still allowed to stroll around and sabotage. cc:...

BLOG niche description unchanged

Malkazoid ·
The Tribunal members overwhelmingly voted to keep the BLOG niche in order to give the owner a chance to change the description. https://www.narrative.org/hq/appeal/46776834475244075 Six weeks have gone by, and the description has not budged... So what happens now? Is a community member supposed to appeal the niche again ? That started a very unfortunate chain of events last time, and many Narrators are now much more reluctant to be involved in community governance activities as a result (it...
Issue

Writing Niche

Garden Gnome Publications ·
The Tribunal recently ruled that the BLOG Niche should be rejected , a win for all Narrators. However, there is still an issue with the Writing Niche , owned by the same Niche owner. I'm inclined to make a similar appeal, but the last time that happened, with the BLOG Niche, Tribunal members rejected the appeal to give the Niche owner time to make changes to the description. BUT, he didn't, which is what led to the second appeal. The problem now is, this Niche owner is Conduct Negative.

We may have our first troll!

https://www.narrative.org/m/Shepard/activity Brand new member who appeared just after the owner of the BLOG niche changed his name and avatar and deleted the thread he started on the platform about the issues the community sees with his niche. This new member (who if innocent, has my sincere apologies), bid immediately on the niche "Inside Blogging". Coincidence - maybe. This new member's other inaugural action: to appeal one of my niches (Nonprofit). Coincidence - or someone's idea of petty...

Re: Reputation Formula Transparency

With this system, a group of users can make a vendetta against another, voting it negative. My reputation goes down because I do not spend 24 hours here or I do not like someone, because of something I said. Apparently, they do not want me here.

Re: Reputation Formula Transparency

Melanie Mathos ·
You won't have to worry about that. Reputation is actually the key to prevent mob behavior from having influence. Bad actors will have little impact as the impact of voting and rating is influenced by Reputation, and that must be earned. And, content rating is just one aspect of determining your score: https://blog.narrative.network...rrative-e43c2b0e9fd2 .

Re: Cheating on "Inside Blogging" and strolling trolls

Bashar Abdullah ·
Seen them too. The issue here I think is there are no clear terms to ban a new low reputation account for bidding on up to 10 niches at the time. And no control over how many times or how high they can bid. And I'm seeing genuine users trying to outbid them on other niches they really want. This is why I don't think bidding is wise right now, until Narrative can control the situation. It's unfair to decent bidders.

In the meanwhile, the bid on Inside Blogging has been run and won by fake identities (at 60k...) of the owner of BLOG. I wonder what should I do. Congratulate him?

Well, if they truly do pay the 60k? Then yes. And if they don't, as we expect? In a few days it'll be back up for auction again.

There is a problem with this David, which you may not be taking into account when saying yes , we should congratulate a member who has started serial trolling the site in multiple ways, for winning a niche with a dummy account, as part of a campaign of spamming well over a dozen niches with bids. Other bidders understandably stop bidding when faced with this sort of scenario because otherwise they will pay more for a niche that the person bidding up across from them probably doesn't intend...

Re: Cheating on "Inside Blogging" and strolling trolls

Disagree. He probably won't pay, but he MAY pay, and still acting just for revenge, and then sabotage the niche. And if he doesn't pay he's still there altering bids, delaying purchases (even delaying is part of his scheme), and giving a confusing picture to new users. We wait for the team to solve but, IMO, the thing is serious. cc: @Malkazoid

Should we make any assumptions about intent until or unless the Niche is paid or not paid?

Let me temper things here - we are aware of the activity going on and are examining the best path forward where we can utilize (and adjust as needed) the system/rules to automatically take care of behaviors. We want the system to do the work as it is important moving forward. We expected some things to be tested. While it doesn't seem like we are acting as fast as you would like, it is important to look across a bunch of behaviors and patterns so we can best adjust.

I don't think this individual intends to pay. @Vico Biscotti , yours is not the only niche he bid on and won. He's targeted multiple niches, including one that was being bid on by a member of Narrative staff, @Rosemary . https://www.narrative.org/hq/auction/9197106484215445 This type of behavior is clearly intended to be disruptive and nothing else. He targeted several niches being bid on by another user, with a rep of 59, named Shane Andis. This Narrator is fairly new to the platform but...

Thanks for the reply, @MOLLY O . It helps to hear from you, and we all know you need time. I'm just worried that without human intervention, malevolent behavior can have a long life, and do damages in the meanwhile. We need a safe and fair environment to publish and connect. Hope you reach that point. Good work.

@MOLLY O I'm not concerned with the speed of response: it was the weekend and this is the first work day dealing with the situation. I am concerned when it is suggested we should congratulate the troll if he pays for the niche. He shouldn't be able to get the niche at all, no matter how much he pays, because he cheated to get it. He applied a chilling effect on other bidders, by creating troll accounts and spamming many niches with bizarre bids. The predictable effect was for serious bidders...

@Garden Gnome Publications , yes, he's doing that on several niches, I know. And yes, he's succeeding in demotivating people, like me, that's why his action already had an effect. I'm not going to invest, with this scenario, and this is what he wants. I may be overly prudent, but I'm not alone. I don't think it's a competitor. The guy was quiet until the appeal on his niche. Everything started there, immediately, as direct revenge to me and a few other users, first, then as a challenge to...

Must disagree also. Some people are serious about inflicting damage, not about nurturing the community. And as others said, he has basically been bidding on as many niches as he can, and also appealing all niches possible. Disrupting operations and pushing away real members. He's at an advantage now of picking whatever he wants to actually buy, and leave all others to rest. And I've seen genuine users outbid him and probably end up paying very high price. I'll post my suggestion in separate ...

Thank you @Bashar Abdullah - we have a duty to care for the people who have been impacted by this troll's vendetta. People have potentially been caused considerable extra expense, and others have decided not to buy niches they wanted. In the case of at least one person - I think he would have made an excellent niche owner: his dedication is already manifest... and I only mention him because he's the one I've talked with. There may be others. He is sitting it out now - he'll miss the niche he...

The first benefit I can see is that Narrative is new and inspiring, with a new direction of ownership and creating content that is different to Steemit. I like how Narrative has a larger focus on community, Steemit on the other hand is a bit like tweeter and users do come and go fast. It will be great to see how this develops and how the community sticks together on Narrative. Ted has many many years in Social media and I can see he has thought of this when building Narrative.

As a Steemit user also, I can tell that is very hard to advance and earn something without investing money in Steem power and SBD for promotion. Even if you write great blogs, nobody will see that on Steemit and with money and without bringing any good content to Steemit, you can be powerful and earn a lot. With Narrative that can't happen. In Narrative you can have a lot of NRVE but your reputation and earning will depend of content that you are bringing to Narrative. This model is much...

My own two cents to add here: I have a blog and, to expand my reach -and because everyone was pumping Steemit because "You can make so much money on your content"-, I opened an account on Steemit and started republishing some of my original content in the platform. Soon after, I got bored. It's full of bots and the only content that actually makes money is crappy, copy/pasted-ad-infinitum articles from different media. Also, have you looked at the Trending content of the Lastest Posts at...
