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...

This is very true! However, being an amateur website creator myself I sometimes find it relaxing to push out little features like #1 for instance, when I find myself working on a big and tedious feature. Anyway, this thread is only meant to be a reference/inspiration for the devs if they do have time for it further down the line. Appreciate your comment!

I agree. Number one especially. I think it is important for people to read comments. Some downvotes provide a context for their response...sometimes these are very easy fixes for the suggested niche to result in a upvote. Some people may not even be aware that they can comment on the ballot box or that their votes are transparent. But I am also aware how much work the team must be under right now...little tweeks may need to come much later.

Hi @Andreas Hauser , nice suggestions! I am definitely for number one! It would be good to see straight away if there are any comments or not . As you mentioned @Emily Barnett , it is a little unclear at first sight that you can click on the Niche names to get further info. I agree with number three as well. It would be nice to see clearly who suggested a Niche especially if we aim for transparency. Also I was thinking that perhaps it would be good to have a possibility to modify a Niche...

I think a little pop-up for clicking on the downvote to select the reason for rejection would simplify approval process—and educate participants on what they are actually supposed to be doing. Options for rejection are: redundant violates terms of service Any others? (Notice, " I don't understand how someone would use this. " and " I don't like this subject. " were not options.)

Awesome, thanks! Any chance this variable could be posted to a central place alongside the other metrics? Having them centralised would be key to understanding where we are at, at a glance.

Fantastic suggestions so far - that would reap immediate benefits for the process. Forgive me if this is already there and I'm just no seeing it: could we have the following centralised metrics: - a tally somewhere of how many Validated Niches there are - a tally of how many Niches under Evaluation there are - the number of members signed up for the Alpha - Niches Proposed per Member figure, that tells us exactly how well we are doing in terms of member participation in the process I feel...

Awesome to see so many good suggestions! I'll add a few more: Nested comments (basically just a copy of Facebook's comment system to make discussions less chaotic) Ability to edit posts but with an "edited" tag if the post gets edited.

Re: Wanted Features

Hi again, I just thought of other features that might be interesting to see. 1) for a niche a ratio of founders (or in a later period members) who voted to all founders (or members - later) who registered in alpha so far. I suppose it would be nice to see it in the summary section of each niche, but it is just an idea. So each member would see how many other members voted for his niche compared to total number of people registered in. 2) another ratio: number of founders (or members) who...

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...

Madhanic ·
Is there a limit to the number of moderators? Bigger niche = more moderator assuming that there is more views and hence more income, otherwise it would not be attractive to be a moderator in that bigger niche. Guess that we need to find a balance and optimal number of moderator for each niche?
Reply

Re: Features to help our Moderators do a great job.

Emily Barnett ·
Good question @Madhanic ...I considered this too. I guess it may depend on the moderators if they are willing to divy up the 6%, but i guess the functionality would have to be in the programed to allow 2 moderators to get paid. Perhaps we could make an application to have 2 moderators share the work load should our niche become big and profitable. I could see that happening with Crypto.

Thanks, @Emily Barnett for opening this topic, again an interesting one! I was actually assuming that there would be more moderators for popular niches because there will be more traffic and therefore more people necessary to regulate it. I also had the impression that all moderators of a certain niche will receive the same amount from that niche regardless of how much they are moderating. Maybe I got it wrong because it seems to me more logical to have the moderator payout directly...

So Excellent. As much as i am involved as a Niche owner...I see that role for me as the smallest of my roles. I am interested in moderating and very interested in being a content creator. Very much looking forward to what the team rolls out next for moderators.

"Moderators" is the sleeper feature of Narrative. What I mean is that the functionality sounds pretty "to-be-expected" but the way they work will be distinct from content managers in FB or Twitter. I've been digesting this article: Content mods would solve an urgent problem if anyone were willing to pay them and thinking about the long-term effect our moderators will have on the new content economy. A few distinctives: Niche moderators are known to and voted for by the niche community Niche...

I'm wondering how customizable the dashboard of a moderator will be. In relation to Emily's original question, if the moderator can customize their dashboard, then the actual number of tabs and folders will depend on each moderator. I imagine everyone organizes their work differently and would want flexibility in this regard. Do we know if this will be the case?

Thanks for this clarification @Rosemary I am glad that the functionality to have multiple moderators is already built in. Will our Niches have tabs or sections, for About, and Submission criteria?

I'll post this other comment in here because I'm not ready for a full-on post about moderators. @David Dreezer found a great article on what FB and YouTube do for content moderation "at scale." Since they handle millions of items, it's eye-opening. See the Techdirt article called First Steps ... . They mention an upcoming second Content Moderation at Scale Conference in Washington, DC on May 7. Representatives from a wide range of tech companies both big and small will be talking in detail...

@krill we haven't thought that far ahead to a UI yet but we will work back from the toolset moderators will need for their job. A fast way to organize "what's new" will be #1 followed by a suite of the tools you may need (move, block, moderate etc)

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?

Re: Why Narrative?

Emily Barnett ·
Good post @RobbyCannard For me it is a few things. Like you, the aesthetics played into it for me. The comparison to Medium which has a very clean interface was appealing. How advertising is brought in will be critically important. Also like you the Niches was a big factor. The internet is in desperate need of curation...people whom demonstrate consistently, an ability to present quality, selected from quantity, should be rewarded with social currency. This saves so many people time, which...

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.

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.

The difference will be between launching with a couple thousand, somewhat weary members, or launching with thousands of people who...

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...

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...

Interesting. I'll probably love that niche if it attracts intelligent discussion that can be politically neutral while trying to solve a problem or situation. The current level of friction in society, one might assume, is a symptom that our current structure of democracy is extremely inefficient.
