Draft an introduction of yourself for the Narrative launch platform

Malkazoid ·
Hello! One of the most significant things we can do in preparation for launch is to each write a post introducing ourselves. Many of us did this here on this forum, but when the actual platform launches, those posts won't be visible there. Seeding the relevant community-oriented niches with Community-oriented content before launch is a key part of kickstarting the life of the Community on Narrative proper - and what better way to start than learning a bit about each other? There are at least...

Default Niche for Posts

Osita ·
I noticed that after publishing your post in your desired niches, at the confirmation page, the niches are placed in alphabetical order, rather than a prioritized order. I was thinking the niche selection will be prioritized, and your default/base niche is displayed first followed by the other two (2). The post editor does not allow for choice of default niche by the way. I hope this will be properly displayed in Beta as the posts go live.

Find some Etsy treasures for the Best of Etsy niche before launch!

Malkazoid ·
7 days to launch... Feeling like you don't have enough content ready for the big day? Yeah, same here. Then I discovered creating content for this niche is really fun and easy. You can create 5 pieces of great content in about 30 minutes... Example 1 - Go to www.etsy.com and browse the dizzying array of treasures there. 2 - Pick five that really stand out and open them up into separate tabs. 3 - Open Narrative in a second browser window and create your drafts The format I've been following...

What was the first piece of Narrative Content you liked after Beta Launch?

Malkazoid ·
Hello! Sharing content with other Narrative users may or may not be part of the initial functionality of the shiny new Beta we are about to have revealed... Either way - it will be fun to hear from everyone what the first piece of content is that we discovered on Narrative, that we liked. Just three hours to go!

What were you doing the day Narrative Public Beta launched?

Malkazoid ·
Here's to hoping this will be memorable enough of a day that we'll all remember what we were doing, the day Narrative Public Beta went live! But if your memory might need a nudge a few years from now, tell on this thread so you can refer back!

Second round of NRVE disbursements for activity pre-beta

Emily Barnett ·
We haven't heard much about the second disbursement for pre-beta activity points. Just wondering when this will be calculated and disseminated. I assume the calculations go right up until beta launches?
Suggestion

Niche followers - we need to know.

Emily Barnett ·
Hi All! I am sure there will be a cornucopia of suggestions...before that happens remember, people seem very pleased. My first suggestion is to list a niche's number of followers, and possibly even who they are. I really think this is important for every level. Owners need to understand their investment. Moderators need to understand the time commitment. Content makers need to evaluate where they want to spend their time and energy creating content. It isn't just about how a niche fits your...

Niche shortcuts/bookmarks

Malkazoid ·
Forgive me if this has already been suggested, or if it is possible already and I just haven't discovered how it is done. I logged in on day 2 of the Beta (today), and immediately wanted to jump to the Narrative Community niche to read Community activity. That's when I realized I could not find a short cut to get there. I think the only way is for me to create bookmarks for niches in my browser, or search Narrative for the niche every time. Sometimes I might get lucky and the niche I want to...

Mention of Beta somewhere?

Malkazoid ·
Hello Just noticed that folks landing on the Beta have no indication that it is in Beta. We're sharing our content - a person clicks a link and lands on a post, and nowhere does it indicate Narrative is in Beta. This may be deliberate, but it may be an omission. I think it might be helpful for people to not judge the current platform as final...
Question

Stop all bidding until better controls are inplace

Bashar Abdullah ·
Following recent events, and seeing as everyone agrees bidding is being overtaken now by fake accounts with sabotage motives, and as it's clearly pushing away most legit bidders who care about the platform, or ending having them pay a much higher price, and as it's understandable going to take time until Narrative team can implement proper solution, I hereby call for Narrative to put halt on all bidding until a proper solution is in place. It's Beta anyways, and the goal is to test things.

Narrative Beta Walkthrough video stops early?

Re: Default Niche for Posts

David Dreezer ·
No sure what you mean by - prioritization. If you select 3 Niches then your content will be posted to all 3 of them. There isn't going to be an "if this one and if not then that one" scenario. Eventually (after beta) it will be up the moderator of each Niche to determine whether or not your submission fits the Niche, but either way the content will be equally submitted to all 3 Niches. Can you give a further explanation of your concern if I did not address it?

Re: Default Niche for Posts

Osita ·
Prioritization... Case in point. I have a content, written specifically for FinTech niche. I am fine with selecting only the FinTech niche, but because I can select up to 3 different niches in order to give the post more exposures, I go ahead and select Monetary Innovation and Finance niches. I am of the view that FinTech niche should have priority when it comes to search results in Google and within the Narrative ecosystem; secondly, payout royalty to niche owners, FinTech niche should be...

Re: Default Niche for Posts

David Dreezer ·
I see. This isn't something that is displaying improperly, as what you're describing is not currently part of the spec . There is no notion of a default Niche or weighted search rankings within the spec. Which Niche gets the payout? It isn't a one post or one page view = 1 point type of thing. Doesn't work that way. I'd refer you to the Spec again. For more detail please read the section that I linked to. The submissions to the 3 Niches will weigh into those Niche's Niche Content Score.

Yes, a simple list of niches you follow would be VERY helpful. Reddit does this with a dropdown box in the top nav bar, but it could also be a link to a separate page to start with before the team gets around to coding another solution.

For me, the navigation of the Narrative site is at best frustrating. And the search function is weak. And the default view is depressing. So many issues. But the default response is, well, it's beta.

I posted an article on Medium recently and I already earned $19. I purchased my niches way back when... and been trying my best to get selected as a moderator for a niche, and also tried getting content creators with no luck. I'm profoundly unimpressed at this point. The concept of diminishing returns is solidly displayed here.

We are only 24 hours into this platform. New content will grow and be posted to all of the Niches. There are people posting to Niches now that were not expected. You can't compare us to Medium on Day 1. Moderators have not be elected so I am not sure what the issue is there. We won't hold moderator elections until member reputation is earned. As you can see on the platform now, Member reputation is beginning to really notch up base d on their actions. You may have missed it, but right now as...

It is the nomination page. You'll see where it says " Nominate yourself, and make your pitch." at the top. It is in preparation for when there will be elections. Makes sense to get people to nominate themselves and be listed as available to vote on BEFORE the election, does it not? It wouldn't make sense to open nominations after the elections start.

When Malkazoid asked for people to comment about initial impressions, feedback, I initially refrained because I didn't want to upset the sensitivities of some people. I suppose I was right and shouldn't have expressed myself. Molly said, "We won't hold moderator elections until member reputation is earned." which is not a date, or even an expected date in the future. It also brings up more questions about what the hold up is on reputation. I appreciate Molly's responses because she doesn't...

Hi Erik - I'm sorry this is a rough patch in the ride for you. I've had a couple along the way too. As I understand it, the Team is being prudent when it comes to reputation. The reputation system is very young still - which is not quite the same thing as concluding it has 'problems' beyond those one should expect from a young system designed to respond to a living, evolving system. It needs to be put through its paces, and for live experience with the algorithms to shed light on whether it...

Haha! You're very welcome! Here's to hoping moderator elections can be held sooner rather than later. In the meantime, I've happened upon a silver lining for the wait for moderator elections. People will now have the time to present much more detailed candidacies on the Narrative Elections and Leadership niche. I'm hoping this provides the basis for a more vibrant democratic process on Narrative, with candidates being challenged to really represent themselves, and voters being challenged to...

True, but having been an Alpha member for several months previous, not all the niches I've followed were followed or interacted with recently. There's no way for me to find niches I may have followed at the end of December without sifting through pages and pages, not even knowing what I'm really looking for.

Sadly, I agree. I wish there was another way, but we should do the right thing and prevent further damage, unless the fixes are literally as swift to be implemented as a halting of bidding is. I trust the Team will evaluate the swiftest route honestly.

Awesome! I didn't know this niche even exists. I have something I LOVE from Etsy - sadly unavailable anymore but this artist has a whole array of beautiful and inspiring items and I'd love to advertise her. Also, I'm going to sell my poetry zines on Etsy, once I finally get to finish them, so... good that this niche exists

Poetry is one of the most underrated forms of expression in our times - I LOVE that you plan to sell your poetry in zine form... That takes a kind of courage that resonates with me. I'll look forward to buying one.

Thank you for posting an example format. Not knowing what to expect makes my spidey anxieties tingle, so I very much appreciate having a set format or visual guidelines to follow. I own the Makeup and Vanity Rooms Niche, I know there is relatable products on Etsy so it could be a double win.

I am so excited about beta launch of narrative today. I want to hear a speech from Narrative CEO or Head of Narrative staff as the first piece of content that we discovered on Narrative. I want to some address from Narrative administration about present and future goal of Narrative. Let's celebrate today. Cheers to everyone here. Thanks for great community to be alive very soon.

Me too @MALAY BANERJEE - this is a day that has been long awaited by the community, and even longer for the @Narrative Network Team . I think we can share a little in their sense of giving birth today, but ultimately, their focus has been far more intense and unrelenting... all building up to a couple of hours from now! A bit of pride is in order: if we look at startups - many fail before this point. Lots of hurdles ahead... but quite a few big ones behind as well!

I think I'll remember this day easily enough... Not only is our public Beta going live, but for our film, this is the last day with our editor, on a project that represents an eleven year journey for me, and up to eight years for some folks on our team. If you'd tried to tell me eleven years ago that I would bring a project to fruition that would require such unwavering and long-lasting commitment, I would not have believed it. So there's a strange and fun confluence of the symbolism of this...

This is a great idea. I always love those articles that capture the web as it was, say, 20 years ago. Things like Amazon and Google looks so quaint in hindsight. Even the first Microsoft site was simply terrible from a web design point of view (did they build in FrontPage?). So it's going to be enjoyable someday going to the Wayback Machine and looking at narrative.org as it is today. I expect to smile. But this is where we start. Like those geeky pictures of us as a teen, they nevertheless...
