Hello I Just browsed through the "Ballot box" and can´t help to wounder, that when more "niches" is being suggested, and the approved ones disappears from the "Ballot box" how will the community know if a proposed niche is overlapping another niche? I would suggest that niches must contain at least three tags, which describes the topic (niche). The tags could be created together with the community. An example: the niche "New York Jets" could have the following tags applied: "Sport",...
Yes, we definitely surfaced that as a potential challenge. Some indicator in that interface that will help the voter see potential duplicates would be helpful. Not sure if that turns into tags, or just some way to see names of similar Niches...
I think it could also be valuable to have a category of niches that get approved by the community but then unbid on. because it was approved it should not have to go through the approval process again which may get flagged as a duplicate. This category could be a pre-approved niches area. Just because someone changes there mind on a suggested niche doesn't mean that someone new to the platform won't want to purchase it. Even just in the patron level I see niches that have no bids on...
I may be wrong, and I don't think it is described anywhere how this works, but I assumed those niches that are not being bid on will stay there until someone bids on them? I haven't heard anything about them expiring...
well the bidding time is only 48 hours. yes you could be right maybe the 48 hours starts from the time of the first bid. But why would you suggest a niche and then not bid on it. seems like a waste of the community's time.
Agreed. They might be dummy niches that they are in fact not interested in? A fear of their niche being bought up by someone with more means than them could lead them to hold on to the important niches until people have spent their budgets on the first and second rounds. Then the coast is clear for them to have a fighting chance to get the niches they really want?
Hello @Rosemary , I wanted to ask you if the tags or any other niche classification is already in the process? I understand it is probably not easy to implement it in such a short period but it is getting harder to keep all the topics in the head when I compare them and look out for similarities. Thanks a lot !
There is a lot going on behind the scenes, yes! For now, one thing you can do (although it will be tedious) is to use the little search box (the magnifying glass icon in the toolbar) to check the Niche name against existing Niches if you think it might be a duplicate. Thanks for being an active participant!
I agree with having the ability to edit a proposal, but I don't think you should be allowed to retract it, because it is necessary for bad suggestions such as duplicates and those that violate policy to end up rejected so that in the future they can not be proposed again. Otherwise we will constantly have to revisit failed ideas over and over as those proposing them retract their suggestions.
Good suggestions! I think this will save a lot of precious time for everyone. Retracting a suggestion sounds also good, with a score below 60% it's clearly a signal of little confident. I see little comments though what could be improved to stem the tide.
Hello all I have been thinking on ways to improve the voting process regarding Niches. Currently the feedback (comments) received during the 48 hours voting process, can´t be implemented to the Niche. And there is a 7 days penalty involved if your Niche is not approved. Therefor I have a few suggestions to improve the Niche suggestion and voting process. Between the first 12 hours and 24 hours that a Niche is active in the Ballot Box, Niches receiving less then (an example: 60% YES votes)...
Great suggestions and something I definitely see implemented over time. I think the Personal Journal Platform can also act as a Social Profile and everyone can add each other there. Don't quote me on that but it would make the most sense. Personal Journals will have a lot of components to them that are not quite detailed yet but I assume there will be plenty parts of that platform you can make private and public. Niches will always be a huge part of the platform but Personal Journals will be...
Private messaging is important. given that many people on here remain anonymous it is important for us to have a way to connect with niche owners, moderators and content makers. This feature would be good to have asap. I know there are people already whom would like to speak more privately about purchased niches and intentions to moderate or contribute. Although I have nothing to hide, I don't always want to speak through a bull horn. You know what I mean?
@Alex Shepherd it is true that private messaging is very standard, but currently we don't have it, and I am already finding that I need it. I don't mind the small forum within a niche, but again the private message is important when moderators may need to reject content that has been submitted. This under no circumstances should be public. So although it seems obvious to ask for private messaging....i think it is very important, as well as a priority feature.
@Dennis is Lbry a blockchain token earning platform. I didn't see anything eluding to that. I know of this one. MITH I haven't taken the time to read the white paper. there is also Civil and I started a thread about Civil that you can read here
I think making edits to the Niche should have a couple effects: Restarts the Niche's voting timer/clock. Resets existing votes for the Niche (notifying previous voters that it has been updated—with clear explanation of what has been changed—and that the voters will need to resubmit a vote).
@Bryan , niche edits can’t be made until after a niche has been approved (by vote) and subsequently purchased. Then, the new owner can make edits. Edits are going to be voted on by the Tribunal instead of the community in order to ensure the edits are not materially significant, which should eliminate the potential scenarios where someone buys an obscure niche and tries to repurpose it later to something completely different.
One of the winners of Microsoft dApps competition: https://github.com/ANDIT-Solutions/neo-esignature to mark your content to prevent misuse later. Wouldn't solve the misuse of content already existing immediately, but could be useful to secure your.
Oh that is interesting...Are they expecting people to upload a jpeg of their actual signature though? Or an avatar perhaps? Not sure how comfortable i would be putting my actual signature all over the internet.
I think it is safer than that. The straightforward way of identifying documents on Blockchain is to create a hash of the document - which is a code that uniquely identifies that document by performing some math on the bits and bytes that make up the document. That identifying code can than be stored on the Blockchain in association with your wallet, proving that you submitted the document to the chain and when.
Oh well that is interesting. You mean it might not be based on the timing of posting it, but rather who has a better rank. Hmmm I see the merit for that but also the pitfalls. Steemit is so top heavy advantaged it is so difficult for newbies to get started with a huge drop off rate for prolonged participation. maybe there is a way to split the difference and let the moderate have a star per day or week or something, that they can highlight posts as exceptional content. that way we are both...
It would be nice if we could create a hierarchy within each Niche of preferred Narrator content from those who are consistently putting out excellent content, allowing those users to gain greater exposure in that Niche. Qualification could be based upon reputation and amount of previous content contributed, reducing the potential for favoritism from Niche Owners to users.
lbry.io is not blockchain based. But most of it is completely reusable. Before every content is in a blockchain file system we are 10 years further. We will have a hybrid for a long time. But blockchain is generally only for ledger and payment purposes. The real digital assets can always be encrypted on a different centralised storage. Blockchain / ledger just keeps track of the references.
Here's how I would solve it. The comments should be directly beneath the New Ballot description box, not hidden in a sub tab. The summary tab can be thrown out too: all that data can be included in the New Ballot description box, in a smaller font so that it is nice and compact, right under the words "BALLOT (NEW NICHE)". Result - the main page for voting on that niche has the comments right in front of you, impossible to miss. Hopefully his is an easy fix for the @Narrative Network Team
This is not a major flaw, but it would be easier and more user-friendly if the ''reply with quote'' is directly below ''take action'' I don't think ''report reply'' is commonly used (I hope not =x), it would be better if it replaces ''reply with quote'' position. Have any other feedback for improvement? Share it here!
I completely agree too, the "take action" gives the impression of reporting a post for something inappropriate ! I only stumbled across how to reply to a particular quote by wondering how others had replied and started clicking around !
Understand please that these forums are not Narrative, and while we can change some of the wording via the control panel, substantive changes such as the order of the wording or placement of items are not things that are within our control. Hoop.la is produced by a sister company of Narrative and any changes made to it would be a change that would effect all of the Hoop.la customers, not just this one forum. I'll be happy to relate these comments to the Hoop.la team though.
Thanks for the clarification @David Dreezer . I think we all just want to make Narrative as good as it can possibly be. Its an advantage that Hoop.la is a sister company so we have more opportunity to suggest ideas on how to make their platform better too.
It would be great to relate these feedback! After all being user friendly and user oriented are important factors in making this platform a success. Can I ask, since this forum is not Narrative, would narrative have it's own forum? Thanks!
When you block a person, they can no longer invite you to a private message or post to your profile wall. Replies and comments they make will be collapsed/hidden by default. Finally, you'll never receive email notifications about content they create or likes they designate for your content.
Note: if you proceed, you will no longer be following .
