[Feedback] To improve current forum

Madhanic ·
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!

HI, Suggestion: A feature to resell a niche using NRVE. The would allow a niche owner to put a niche back up for auction and to sell privately . -Auctions would need a minimum bid option* Reason_ Life Things change and perhaps an owner looses the time needed to maintain a niche. The ability to unload to a willing person is key to keep the "narrative" engaged and vibrant. Whit

Suggested niches trapped in review limbo

Maelstrohm Black ·
Greetings, I suggested two niches, respectively "Industrial Music", on July 21st, and "Magick, Aleister Crowley and the Law of Thelema" (this not a typo, the word "Magick" is spelled with a "k" and the word Law, spelled with a capital "L" in the thelemic context), on July 22nd, and ever since, they seem to be caught is some kind of "review limbo", as the timer has reached expiry, then been reset, on both. Isn't the review period supposed to be 48 hours?

Niche Suggestion Limitation Process

Ted ·
Hi everyone- Currently, we only allow members to suggest one niche per day. The reason for the limitation is that we wanted to prevent spamming and because the reputation engine is not in place yet. Our plan though is to refine that model a bit for the beta. One idea we had was to charge a small non refundable fee each time you make suggestion (approximately $5 in equivalent NRVE). However, if and when the niche is purchased at auction, you would receive 10% of the purchase price. Thus, you...

How do I search for the niche?

Mass ·
Hey there, I submitted the niche, and though the suggested similar submitted niches — while trying to submit niche — didn't match my suggested niche, I submitted my niche suggestion. Since I am still skeptical, I am wondering if there is any way I could search the niche check if my suggested niche already exist? Thank you!

Suggestion for niche suggestion: Most search engines make a good "quick" spell checker.

Verona Williams ·
I've noticed a misspell or two in suggested niches today and just wanted to mention that Google and DuckDuckGo make good on-the-fly spell checkers if you are uncertain about the spelling of a word. I use them every once in a while for those words that would win you the spelling bee if you know how to spell them.

Niche descriptions where the suggester talks about him/herself

M ·
Hello! @MOLLY O - there is a niche you have voted to approve, that references the suggester in the description: https://alpha.narrative.org/hq/approval/26509572804797087 Up until now, we have quite consistently voted down such niches - and I think it is optimal to do so. Users, especially new users, could easily become confused about what the niche is for: is it a public space where everyone can submit, or is it some sort of private space dedicated the niche owner has...

Is it CURRENTLY possible to edit the name/description of a niche you submitted?

Christina Gleason ·
I'm asking because of the Drinking Alcohol niche I suggested here: https://alpha.narrative.org/hq/approval/25946601693388838 I added a line about the legal drinking age specifically to avoid the "encouraging illegal activity" part of the TOS, but others find it problematic, which is pretty much the opposite of why I included it in the first place.

Now that Rep is here, Is the 7 day block after a rejected Niche still relevant? and other issues.

Hi All, So I made a small mistake in a niche, I wrote security when I should have wrote insecurity, and rightly so it made my nice description confusing. It got voted down. It could have been an easy fix after voting. Perhaps if I had of noticed the trend of down-voting early enough i could have commented about my willingness to fix the small error if approved. But a last I was at a funeral and needed to leave the Narrative community for a week. I am not upset. This was my error. But I have...

Welcome to the latest round of invites, and the niches y'all are suggesting and bidding on!

Christina Gleason ·
Niche suggestions were becoming stagnant, and it's really exciting to see new narrators getting right down to business! Here are a few quick tips for suggesting niches and voting to approve or reject them: Use the search function to make sure the niche you want to suggest doesn't already exist. Search for synonyms just to be safe so you're niche suggestion doesn't get rejected for being redundant. (Don't feel bad if this happens. There's a bit of a learning curve here.) You can also check...

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.

Suggestion: Add the ability to create a "picture library".

Heidi Hecht ·
I think if a lot of us have some pictures that we're going to use frequently in our posts, it might be a good idea to allow the creation of personal picture galleries so Narrative can save some space on its servers and the rest of us can save some time uploading pictures all the time.

When choosing niches to post content, search should look at names AND descriptions

This was a suggestion I made in the forums, so I'm going to copy my forum text: One thing that's really needed is when choosing three niches for our content, we need search to look at niche names and descriptions.

Poetics Niche (Please Don't Let It Die)

Poetics is the study of poetry-writing techniques.

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.

This will avoid scrolling and provide a quick way to engage with other users via comments.

I thought it would be useful to have the functionality of automatic suggestions. for example: when I insert a comment and I want to tag some users, putting the snail and starting to write a letter, it doesn't even suggest me some user who wrote the post or commented previously or in any case another narrative user. what do you think?

Focus Niche suggestion rewards on ones being bought

Bashar Abdullah ·
More and more niches are being suggested on Narrative, which is great. However many of these niches as I see, while valid, are of no real value, and no one is likely to buy them. The result is this becomes overhead for Narrators to vote on and create unnecessary noise. Some people might be suggesting niches hoping it will boost their reputation. For example, I could be suggesting every city in Kuwait, and all are legit. But in fact, Kuwait country as a whole is not a thriving niche. So these...

Reward Niche Suggestions Based on Approval Rating and Market Value

Garden Gnome Publications ·
Instead of rewarding all niche suggestions with a rep bonus, how about rewarding niche suggestions based on their value to the community as gauged by approval rating and whether or not they are ever purchased. If a niche suggestion is rejected, the suggester should see a slight negative reward based on the weight of the approval rating. The same for approvals. For instance, if a niche suggestion gets a 45.7% approval rating, the niche suggester gets a very slight negative hit to rep, but if...

Limit niche name suggestions by character count

I can't believe this niche name was approved. This was approved in May 2018. I'd like to think that, today, such a niche name would be rejected, but I have no confidence in the wisdom of the crowd.

Darker Shade of Gray in Narrative text

Nuno Moreiras ·
Considering the now months-long discussion about content in Narrative, I assume Narrative was not designed primarily for long-content posts, but one suggestion I'd like to make is changing the color of normal text to a darker shade of gray, because when reading long texts (example: The Science of Fairies or The devilish theatre ) the reader really starts to strains the eyes after some time. Another solution would be a night-mode (maybe that's easier to implement?)

Hey @Ted Lots I like about the idea, but the deal breaker to me is that many niches simply won't get bid upon. And it won't always be because they are not good ideas. I can't think of any situation in which the suggester should lose $5 just because nobody else wanted to use up one of their 5 slots on a good niche suggestion.

I really like the incentives at play here. This 'skin in the game' approach makes a lot of sense to me. In my opinion, and this may no be very popular, if you are going to suggest a Niche, but not bid for it (even if you weren't maxed out on Niches and could), then it shouldn't have been suggested in the first place. I also see the view that maybe you see a gap in the 'Niche Web' ....and have no desire to be an owner / promoter..but would just like to post content there...I guess that could...

I can see someone suggesting an "out of the way" niche, not bidding on it right away, then picking it up for 50% later. I'm not sure that I see a reason to worry about a bunch of niches that were suggested but not bid on, but If there is, then once the reputation engine is fully in place I'd think that making a niche that nobody bids on would give your reputation a hit of some sort, and that would all but solve the problem. Even better, a reputation boost for suggested niches that are...

Re: Niche Suggestion Limitation Process

Thanks for the input, @Banter . I think the issue of the number of niche without bids will be solved (or at least improve) a bit once we allow anyone to register. Keep in mind that the number of participants in the alpha is pretty small currently. Still a valid point you make in that regard, but the fact that we are restricting access to the alpha is also a major factor.

This ^^^. Best of both worlds. Nice! I'm not really in favour of anyone ever taking a reputation hit for suggesting a niche. That just feels like it would inhibit people.

I myself am pretty attracted to the "skin in the game" model, as long as the "once a day" free suggestion option remains. However, there could be a selection of "investment premiums" available, as an added incentive. For instance, there would be an "entry" level premium at 2$ worth of $NRVE for 3% return, an "intermediary" 5$ worth level for 10% and a "top tier" 10$ worth level for 25%. I also share the idea that the maximum niche per owner cap should be raised from 5 to 10, this would...

As much as I love the idea of paying a small increase upfront for any Niche to bypass an auction, I don't think that fits with the spirit of Narrative. I think the auction system is the most fair, and would certainly make the most money / rewards for Niches in the system going forward, which is what I think we want. We already have a mechanism to guarantee ownership of a Niche...just bid the highest I kind of like the neglected Niche Lotto idea...it aligns a bit with my idea of offering...

I agree about concern for when the floodgates open. I try to vote on every proposed Niche and am finding that even with the small number of members, there are a lot of duplicate / sloppy submissions and it takes quite a bit of effort to search the DB for similar ones. I can't even imagine what the current system would result in as the user base expands. +1 for a small fee that could be turned into a larger win.

I agree with @Crystal - there should be no penalty for suggesting a niche that does not get bought. Only a reward if someone does buy the niche. I also agree suggested niches should persist.

By calling them the Boneyard, we’re forcing ourselves and others to look at them as valueless. With only a few thousand active members on the Alpha, we simply don’t...

I'm late to the discussion, but I have a few ideas. 1. Once Narrative software is released and used, what used to be an over-supply of niches will probably turn into scarcity. It's very early in the game to call anything a boneyard. I see a lot of value in almost every niche, because for any subject you can imagine, there'll be an audience. 2. Narrative is an incentive network, and it can easily incentivize the cleanup of redundant, confusing, or overlapping niches. I suspect there will...

@Michael - the cleanup bounty is an interesting idea! Reputation rewards for positive interactions are one thing, but I don't believe the system will function optimally without a financial reward in place as well.

As you pointed out, the rewards don't have to be big. Some people enjoy this type of work, and for those of us who believe in the...
