Wanted Features

Andreas Hauser ·
First of all I want to congratulate the Narrative team on the successful launch of Chaucher! Please pardon me if such a thread already exists - if so I couldn't find it. I believe it would be beneficial to the developers and community to establish a discussion of features we want to see -- small or big, short-term or long-term. (if such a forum already exists, please point me toward it!) I have some features in mind already: 1. A " Join the discussion (3) " button below the niche votes for...

Features to help our Moderators do a great job.

Emily Barnett ·
I was thinking about how busy moderators may get on popular niches, as the platform grows. A moderator of a popular niche like cryptocurrency may have too much suggested content to review each day. It got me wondering if the Niches will have a tab or section for the moderator/owners standards for which they accept content. (ie. original photographs vs stock photos...or the opposite...a certain amount of words per submission etc.) I thought I would pose the question, to see if the community...

Why Narrative?

RobbyCannard ·
As the Exchange listing nears, I was thinking about the question "What sets Narrative apart from its competitors"? Why would someone choose Narrative over the competition? For me, I love the Niche's and from a purely aesthetic feel, it looks fantastic. I was interested in people's view on what they see as Narratives Flagship Feature which will bring the masses?

Accelerating the news cycle for Narrative

Malkazoid ·
In this thread, I'd like to put forth some suggestions, and invite others to put forth their suggestions, of efficient ways for Narrative to gain a broader and higher profile out there , starting now. So I think by now everyone is on page with the necessity of giving more information about development and aspects of the project, to the people out there who want to see signs of life. The @Narrative Network Team have been gradually upping their game in this arena - with the Newsletter,...

Niche Organization / Map Feature - Discussion

Banter ·
Here is a link to the Article @Ted posted: How Narrative will Map Niches . First off....I love the idea and think it is a step in the right direction when it comes to organizing / finding Niches. While I do think a hierarchy is important, I think this should ultimately become a graph. We need the ability to relate Niches that don't have a parent child relationship. Just as a random example, I might want to link a Niche on Steroids to an MLB or Baseball Niche. Obviously...

M's featured niches

Malkazoid ·
Hey, So just for laughs, I'm going to start featuring some niches I think hold a lot of potential to become very interesting places on Narrative. Feel free to join in with any exciting niches you may have noticed. I want to start with: https://alpha.narrative.org/niche/the-difficult-conversations This comes across to me as a sort of community dialogue hub where topics and sections of society that generally do not get aired/combined can deliberately enter a process of learning about each...

Suggestion: Activity Search/Sort

Billy Mild ·
As users do more and more, their activity history grows larger. If someone wants to find, for example, what Niches they suggested, they have to sift through all their votes and nominations as well. While that's not too hard right now, it will get more difficult. I'd suggest implementing some kind of sorting and search feature to this area.

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

Emily Barnett ·
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...

Narrative Alpha is now hunted/featured on Steemhunt!

Hi everyone, I am returning here on Narrative after quite a long time. However, here's a piece of extra news to you, guys. Narrative Alpha has been featured/hunted on Steemhunt . Ta-da Well, there might arise a question on your mind what exactly Steemhunt is, if that's that, let me explain it to you in simple words; Steemhunt is Product hunt , but on the blockchain. And if to borrow the exact words from the Steemhunt themselves; Everyone can support and contribute to taking Narrative Alpha...
Question

Reputation Score

Garden Gnome Publications ·
I noticed that reputation scores have changed since implementing the certification feature. Interestingly, mine went up before I submitted my certification. I see that some others went down. The weight for behavior and quality have been changed. It was 40/40. Now it's 10/60. Why the change? Also, I'm curious if there is a way to see users ranked by reputation? If not, that might be an interesting thing to see on the stats page. Maybe a top 10, or something.

Need for a few niche categories (organization), with in the draft page.

Emily Barnett ·
On @Rosemary's request I am taking the features from my thread of long list of features wanted and posting them as individual suggestions so that they can get voted for in popularity and marked as in progress, or completed by the @Narrative team. Some of us will need to stock pile posts, especially niche owners, therefore it would be great on the draft page if we could have a few category separators in order to have some file management systems. For...

Requested draft feature: something to indicate completed.

Emily Barnett ·
Along the same lines as my other suggestion of needing some organization mechanisms, here are two things that can really help make the draft management nice and tidy, and easy to determine what to work on. 1. implement a completed check mark: this very simple feature would just make the user experience, much more appealing, and somewhat satisfiying for when you return back to you posts page. 2. A date box. Even if it isn't an automated post feature, just being able to put in as a note, the...

enable re-organizing posts in our personal journal's Featured tab

Gosia Rokicka ·
Hello, first, I'd like to apologize if this is possible to do - but I can't see how... If not, here is my suggestion: It would be ace, if we could re-arrange our personal journal so we feature things in order we want to see it displayed. Of course, "recent", "quality" and "trending" are beyond our control but I would love to be able to customize my personal journal so it feels more... well, personal. By the way, this is the feature (or the lack of it) many people complain on Medium about.

Featured Thumbnails Cropped Terribly

E3 Productions ·
I have no idea where to post this so it will be seen by the Narrative developers but one thing that's driving me nuts is the inability to control how our thumbnails appear in the Featured section of Niche home pages and the Discover page. It's automatically cropping to the top of an image so for artwork we're seeing a lot of the tops of characters heads and nothing else. It looks like a mistake.

New Feature for Niche Owners/Moderators

Garden Gnome Publications ·
Let's say I'm a niche owner or moderator and I see a post that wasn't tagged into my niche, but I think it would make a great addition. If I had the ability to reblog that post and tag it into the niche I own or are moderating, it would give that post and its author wider visibility on the platform and improve the content in my niche. It's a win-win. If content creators don't want that, you can add a feature to their settings allowing them to opt out of reblogging (or re-Narrating?). As a...
Suggestion

Giving users a choice between algorithm and human curation

Malkazoid ·
Niches currently have tabs: Featured, Trending, Quality and Recent. We could have a tab in which the content is human curated to some degree. This idea was born from the need to mitigate the Team's qualms about the 'centralized' nature of human curation. The best choice is usually to let users decide what they want. So offer them both algorithm curation and human curation, and let them choose which tab they prefer. You could have the initial default be the algorithm curation tab, if you feel...

Remove Vote and Editing Notification on Post/Comment

BloggerKrunal ·
Remove Voting on Post or Comment Sometimes accidentally we might vote on any post or comment which we don't want to. Now current voting system is irreversible, so either we have to leave it as it is or someone might prefer to down vote it later on. (depends on whatever they want to prefer) How about to have a remove vote option by clicking on it again? For both, upvote and down vote on post/comment.

Re: Accelerating the news cycle for Narrative

Mark Horler ·
At the risk of pointing out the obvious, the platform is called narrative, so you could hardly have a better reason to tell your stories! A true community is, to my mind, a collection of people who want to be part of something greater than themselves, and greater than the sum of its parts. Whether it's sustainability, decentralisation, community ownership, creativity or whatever else, you want people to want to be part of the tribe. Similarly, they want to be part of what they perceive to be...

Yes - could not agree more, Mark. Narrative is a very conducive name for a lot of reasons, and yes, it is showing us the way towards its own success, through its very name. Share the journey with the world. What you are doing is exciting, ambitious, and full of potential: those are the primary ingredients of a great story, a great Narrative. So tell it, please. The difference will be between launching with a couple thousand, somewhat weary members, or launching with thousands of people who...

Hey Banter! So it is early days and probably there are some things that will become clearer as time passes, but with the understanding I think I have, I agree with you! I think internally, the technical representation of the map may already be a graph, and perhaps what is not yet determined is how that will then be represented to the user: maybe there is the thought that representing the graph as a tree to drill down through might be more intuitive from a user-facing perspective? I don't...

Can you repost this please, as a suggestion in our ticket system so that it doesn't get lost/buried? Just click Post, then Support ticket. And choose Suggestion as the topic type. There's no guarantee we will implement it, or if we do, in the exact form as posted, but it makes a lot easier for us to track good suggestions and ideas when they are entered into the system this way. It really helps. Thanks!

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.

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

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.
