What Kind of Contributor will you be?

Emily Barnett ·
As we get closer to the launch of the Narrative platform that enables us to publish content, accrue or dissipate our reputation, and earn financial compensation for our creativity, I pose the question to you all "what kind of contributor will you be?" Will you build a content-maker brand for yourself? Both aesthetically and subject wise? Will you be a generalist... writing about what ever strikes your fancy and find the appropriate niche to present your work on? Or do you plan to be a...

Just Curious. Are we just Niche Owners here, Or Moderators & Content Makers too

Emily Barnett ·
No that we are starting to get a real view of the many different topics coming to light, I am curious if everyone in the community now, is just focused on being a Niche holder, or are there some future Moderators in the house as well? Or maybe some people just plan to focus on being a Content Maker? Is there anyone intending to be all three? Let me know...I am interested.

Re: Moderators – responsibilities

Emily Barnett ·
This is good to know @Rosemary Happy that the content cannot be edited by someone else. The onus should be on the content maker, and therefore they also maintain complete control over its context. Good plan.

Huh... for some reason I just got a daily digest email about this thread... I don't remember ever subscribing to it as its a year old. That being said, I plan to focus on being a moderator in order to earn enough to buy a couple niches while casually posting as a contributor.

Invest. Put $1,000 into this brick and you'll earn 20% in 90 days. At the end of those 90 days, you'll get a pay out on your investment and I'll give you the brick. Ooops. Someone just did that to me. I give them a brick rebate--through the front windshield of their car. :-) I like this niche. It sounds like fun, @Christina Gleason .

Re: What Kind of Contributor will you be?

Emily Barnett ·
I too am not fully decided. I definitely want to hone in on my given topics of expertise, but there are so many interesting Niches being proposed that I do feel I may stretch my creative wings a little bit. I guess it kind of depends how much I am doing this to earn financial gain vs creative outlet. I may find I like writing and producing imagery for a format that doesn't support much rewards, and have to determine if it is worth the investment of time, or if the creative richness is enough.

Re: Buy some niches, y'all! What unowned niches do you have content for?

Emily Barnett ·
But if the community approves a topic, but Narrative demands to be paid before allowing people to post on that topic, it will not be a draw to the platform at all. It feels very, very restricting. And that is not a good thing. Narrative Team, please reconsider let the niche have a moderator, defer the 10% owners rewards back into the rewards pool, and let people get their feet wet in the ecosystem, that allows them full access to approved topics to choose from. Moderators can still be in...

Re: Stop Rewarding People Just for Posting

Serroc ·
As someone who actually has posts that have no likes/comments, I can say I would not mind in the least to earn nothing until someone has read and either liked/commented. It is like the proverbial tree falling in the forest, if no one is there to hear it. I like to EARN my rewards . I didn't even realize that I had earned on the posts until I saw this issue. Then I went back and looked. :-( It seems like a loophole that could be easily exploited as @Gardengnomespubs describes.

Re: We can't rely on Narrators to contact rights holders when there is copyright infringement

Quick note intended for the person who has been posting the youtube videos: your niche can still be hugely successful. Just invite the owners of the content to join Narrative and post their own content. This way, they earn the content creator rewards for their own work, and your niche becomes more active. This is how all niche owners have to proceed: we can't go around posting other people's work for them, without permission or attribution, and pocket the rewards for their hard work.

Re: Tweak algorithm to favor longer content

Garden Gnome Publications ·
If I hear you correctly, @Robert Nicholson , you're saying that simply notifying readers that a post is a short read or a long read will encourage more long-form posting? I don't see how. The reason some post shorter articles is because of the perception that shorter articles earn more rewards. Therefore, since it doesn't take as long to read a short article and Narrators can upvote/downvote it, earn their activity rewards, and move on, and creators can write shorter posts and have them seen...

Re: Organising niche content

Malkazoid ·
Understood. I personally don’t see too much of a problem with this (aside from something outlined below) but some cases might arise where an owner will argue this wasn’t clear enough to them when they purchased their niche. It might be a good thing to put this information front and center in the niche purchasing procedure. Who is the niche community? Can anyone declare themselves of a niche’s community, or do they earn that by reaching a certain threshold of activity on that niche?

Re: Organising niche content

Ted ·
Re: The niche owner has no control over content in the niche. The white paper makes it clear that niche owners have no curation/moderation role in niches and cannot hold a dual role in that regard. There is an intentional separation of powers between owners and moderators. We view niches as essentially public resources (subjects) and would never want one person to be able to have total control over the content. After all, owners cannot be evicted by the community, whereas moderators can be.

Hey Michelle - I know a reply from the team is probably what you are aiming for, and mine might not be so interesting to you. But here is my two cents. I'd be interested to know what it is that is not convincing about the 'canned response'. From where I sit - having a person with a chief financial interest in growing the niche is an important part of the economic theory of niches. If that's the canned response you are referring to, it certainly makes sense to me. We enter less clear...

Well done @Malkazoid i would also like to add that there is plenty of money raised in both the initial ICO and the niche purchase that the team could hire someone on contract to actually port this content over to his suggested ownerless niche, prior to the launch of beta. And a further suggestion -- the money that is raised from this ownerless niche could be set aside as a contingency fund for any legal costs that arise, or for the first Narrative Conference. Honestly, the teams stance that...

Re: Organising niche content

Malkazoid ·
That makes good sense but I think our question isn’t so much focused on the owner, but rather whether niches get organized at all. By moderators for example? The real questions are: can a broad niche have its contents organized and if so, is the overlap with more specific niches a problem, and can that problem be managed elegantly? Who does the organizing is not so concerning to me. And is a niche a recognizable locale in the experience of the user: a place they can land and think ‘I’m on...

No usage of scripts or script-generated content to create or contribute to posts. This is necessary due to the following explanation in the comments of this post . The AUP currently reads: "No usage of bots to post content, manipulate votes, and/or ratings. Prove that self governance works without game playing!" Technically, what Atom Collector Records is doing, and encouraging its members to do, is not bot posting. However, it is game-rigging as they are using a pre-generated script to...

Hi @MOLLY O ... I was referring to the videos recently posted. By policy, I mean what has been told to Narrators to date: that you will only act if you are contacted by the rights holder, and meanwhile, Narrators can contact the rights holder to alert them. I don't think it is realistic to rely on Narrators to do that leg work because of the asymmetry between the ease and financial motivation experienced by the transgressor, and the difficulty and lack of financial motivation experienced by...

I would like to add that posting music to a site compatible with Embed.ly is not an unreasonable ask, as the crypto would be earned HERE for making quality music posts. I am still of the opinion that self-promotional posts that lead users off-site for the actual content are low quality. Yes, it would be nice, as a musician, to double dip the crypto rewards from being able to embed music from Choon on here, but in the absence of that, you earn crypto from Narrative by embedding music from...

Hi All, With beta launch on the horizon, I'm finding myself stressing a bit about writing content so I thought it might be nice to have a list of 'easy' Niches-- ones where those of us who aren't prolific content creators can cut our teeth.

I think the misconception you have is that "Science" can't be a fairly lightweight topic. Science is a broad enough topic that it could include articles on the science you remember from 8th grade science class alongside the latest peer-reviewed research. But on my end, I could use some decent content for "Literature", "Libraries and Museums," and "The Lord of the Rings."

I kinda agree about science. I think if somebody says they don't like science, it could just be that they were bored out of their skulls by the rote memorization in K-12 science class. But if they could do an ELI5 kind of article that makes science easier to understand and kinda interesting, that might be helpful for students trying to play catch-up with their science class.

I guess any niche could be "light weight" if approached the right way. It could be why I didn't list my one niche. I'm not sure it would qualify as "light weight" considering its specialization. I own the Speculative Fiction niche, which can be light weight or heavy depending the author's approach.
