Narrative and NEO a beautiful combination

Jeroenski74 ·
Hi all, I know Narrative is for anyone who likes to read and write quality content. So crypto knowledge is definitely not mandatory, actually your you don't need to know anything about it and still get all the benefits of it. But even though you don't need to know anything about it to use it (you will get paid via this mechanism) it is fun to read a little bit about it just as background information. I want to thank @Ted for his contribution on medium about NEO vs...

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.

On Narrative: The Need To Go The Way Of Medium

Ogochukwu Onyema ·
Hello Everyone. This is my first narrative post and I wanted to use it to address the core concern that I have for this platform. Blockchain platforms have been hailed as those which has come to democratize the opportunity that online platforms provide people. The joy of blogging on a platform where you are free to express yourself to the fullest is one that we have all enjoyed over the past few years starting from Steemit. Don't waste your time online, spend it on Narrative This is a quote...

Narrative is Changing How You get Paid for Your Content

ericnovak ·
Just finished writing this, can't wait until I can publish links to Narrative instead of Medium! https://medium.com/@ericnovak/narrative-is-changing-how-you-get-paid-for-your-content-fadff85d711d
Suggestion

The Cost of Publications - Honour the Narrators who funded Narrative

Malkazoid ·
( A more detailed description of this suggestion can be found on the platform here - the comments may hold important info there too ) Narrative Publications cost $125 USD per year for the basic option, allowing for only 5 writers. If you want to feature content from more than 5 writers, the cost jumps to 299 USD per year . This pricing is an issue. First observation: publications on Medium are free . Medium is a far more established platform already delivering much higher quality content!

31 Social Media Projects Utilizing a Blockchain

Garden Gnome Publications ·
I hope this isn't inappropriate to post, but if it is, @Narrative staff can feel free to delete it. I wrote a post about social media projects utilizing a blockchain and included Narrative on the list. I tried to find as many as I could, and it took a long time to research it. But you can read it on Medium . It's also on Steemit and my business blog. It will soon be on Trybe, and, of course, I'll post it to my personal journal here on Narrative so it can go live during the...
Suggestion

Import Content

Garden Gnome Publications ·
I couldn't find the post someone started about posting features we'd like to see. I was going to add this one. Medium has a feature that allows you to import content from another URL. I'd love to see that. Having to re-format the content once it is imported is fine, to some degree, but being able to import content from Medium, Steemit, or my own professional or personal blog so it can reach a new audience would awesome.

Fantastic post, Ogochukwu. Welcome! You might be reassured to know several voices are pointing towards Medium as a good standard to hold ourselves to. As I understand it, there may still be some disagreement as to how that standard will be attained on Narrative. I think the Team puts a little too much faith in the wisdom of the crowd, and the reputation system they are crafting. Both have their merits, but if Narrative achieves superb quality this way, they would be the first to manage such...

Thoughtful comment filled with Insight @Malkazoid This reminds me of a saying I love so much: You don't achieve goals by pushing power up. you gain more by pushing authority down. Just like you said, I believe that everyone has a role to play, maintaining the integrity of this platform is not something that can be achieved by the Narrative Team alone. Every Niche owner and Content creator have a role to play.

You should be seeing a social share toolbar at the top of this page....or is that not what you're talking about? Watching this conversation has been exciting for me, seeing the level of commitment, passion, and insight that you guys show. Knowing that Narrative will be self-governed, it inspires confidence to know this is the foundation we're building from.

@Gord When I say "quality content" It must not be like a those research topics or projects in schools. Quality content to me is any form of content that uplifts the reader and makes the person enjoy every moment they spend on this platform.

Re: The Cost of Publications - Honour the Narrators who funded Narrative

Vico Biscotti ·
The idea seems only fair and positive, in my opinion. Anyway, the cost of publications is quite high in all cases. The basic option suffers the competition of Medium, at least. I don't see many reasons to pay for a publication on Narrative when I can have - for free - a publication on a platform with a much larger community and no limits in terms of editors and writers. The business option, the only viable option for anyone who's serious about their project, has a stellar price. I don't...

As a qualifying 10-niche owner, I have to say that this is the only way I could own a publication. I cannot afford to throw more money at Narrative when I can't be sure the NRVE in my wallet will even cover the initial cost of my niche investments when I decide to cash some of it out. I would love to run a publication and have real editorial standards. I could get people to join to write for a publication while I can't get them to join to post in the current nichesphere. They might...

Re: The Cost of Publications - Honour the Narrators who funded Narrative

This sounds like a good proposal @Malkazoid I'm feeling a bit silly now, because in my latest article I wrote, I advised Editors (Owners, was my way of thinking in my mind at the time) should not write in their Publication very much. But now it seems that would be the only way for a Publication owner to earn anything is by writing in their own Publication and posting to a niche. So I feel a bit foolish, and embarrassed, and I'm wondering at all now if Publications are even meant for us as...

Hi @Antimetica ! We're all newborn babies when it comes to all of this: the features are not here yet, and we only know the broad lines of what they will be like. The Team plans to include monetisation paths for Publications, so once that is in place, your comments about Editors/Owners will probably be very wise, and in some ways, they already are. Because niche owners benefit when they publish great content in their publication, that drives people to their niches. So they can indirectly...

@Garden Gnome Publications - thanks for sharing some very interesting reading. Since you posted this, I hope you're open to questions/discussion. I read your article on Medium, as well as a previous article you referred to, "The Evolution of Social Media." Frankly, I don't see the connection between blockchain technology and social networking. In "The Evolution..." you state that "What makes them special with regard to social media, in my opinion, is the potential to reduce invasive...

Robert, these are all great questions. For efficiency, I'm going to copy/paste your questions and format them with Blockquotes followed by my answers. Of course! True. No special technology needed to perform any of those functions.

Re: 31 Social Media Projects Utilizing a Blockchain

Hello - great to get into this in earnest. I completely understand, and in part share, @Robert Nicholson 's concern about blockchain and crypto. In order for them not to be a liability, Narrative should not flaunt them as a central asset to the site, at least not on the front page (they are doing a good job of avoiding this so far). As a sales pitch, I agree mentions of crypto repulse as much as, or more, than they attract. With a platform like Narrative that has broad appeal, there is no...

I agree. I am looking forward to you becoming a moderator of the niche, to help me promote the usage of the phrase. I think it really describes us all, and others as well. I cannot take claim of it. @Michael Farris is the one I first was introduced to the term by, I just had the good sense to recognize that is what we all are in this community, as well as other communities and jumped on the niche.

Re: Import Content

I've been manually copy/pasting some of my old blog posts and updating them for this platform for the past two days. It would be SO much easier if we could import from our original URLs. I started with my very first blog post (which was not worth bringing over here) and have been paging through in chronological order to find content worth bringing over, and I'm still only up to 2010. (I'm determined to help the Top 10 Niches list look less spammy.) This is tedious to do manually, since it...
