Will trolling Comments be able to be deleted by Moderator or Niche owner

Emily Barnett ·
Hello @Narrative Network Team I hope to have a Niche that may (hopefully not) have the occassional Trolling commentor. I know that there is other Niches in existence that also may suffer similar intolerant negativity. I know that it has been clearly stated that Narrative is not interested in censorship, but what is the policy of Hate speech and comment harassment. Is there a way for us to delete mean spirited comments in the way the a channel owner on Youtube can delete what they do not...

The wonderful world of comments

Malkazoid ·
Hello all, my take is that comments should be considered a big part of the life of a niche. I’d love to see our platform implement them really well: this is where people interact publicly... I’m a fan of the way Disqus has implemented its commenting system... the discussion threads are clear, and it is easy to search through one’s commenting activity. I think it would be great to be able to promote really good comments to be visible at the top - a great tool for presenting newcomers to the...

Activity - views and likes

Malkazoid ·
Dear @Narrative Network Team I have a question regarding how activity is measured. Since this measure is the foundation of the network rewards attributions, it would be great for us to look at it in a little bit of detail. Right now, from what I have understood, this measurement is based purely in comments, and likes. A) Do likes on comments constitute extra activity for the content, and niche? B) Do views amount to anything, even if the view does not lead to a like? B is of interest to...

Let the Chaucer voting comments shine!

Malkazoid ·
Hello all, This is a reminder to the @Narrative Network Team that comments on niche ballot boxes are still unnecessarily hidden from view in a tab. This is becoming an urgent consideration as we ramp up participation in Chaucer, and is already causing problems. There is a redundant niche underway (please take a moment to vote NO on it): https://alpha.narrative.org/ballot/8352348105331322 Two members of the community have taken the time to comment ( @Emily Barnett and me )...

Deleting a comment on a niche approval page can cause the broken robot of doom

Malkazoid ·
Trying to access that niche's approval page after a comment has been deleted, or even trying to access the page of listed approvals on which that approval sits... brings the robot of doom. This problem tends to resolve itself after a while: I don't know if it is because the @Narrative Network Team are fixing the issue as it arises, or whether some aspect of the system periodically corrects the condition that causes the error... Either way, I thought I would make sure that the Team is...

LGBTQ / LBGTQ niche issue - and comments disappearing

Malkazoid ·
Hello @Narrative Network Team A Telegram member (Rose Lavender) posted today with concern about the LBGTQ niche that has been rejected, and gone to appeal. The appeal cites concerns that the niche has been rejected because of discrimination, so naturally, Rose had concerns about this. I cannot know what is in the heart of every voter, but I do know that I, and several others, took the time to leave comments on the ballot that explained that the niche name was misspelled. The correct...

FORCE users to add a comment when down-voting

cara ·
Why is commenting optional when down-voting a post? This makes no sense at all. We need to know why people are down-voting, otherwise they can speed-vote without really having much of a reason. Most people are followers by nature, if they see a negative voting percentage they will be more likely to click down-vote, even if the Niche should be upvoted. Hold users accountable, don't allow for laziness to be rewarded.

Cover songs niche

Malkazoid ·
Hello all A niche proposing for people to post covers of songs was recently rejected. There were a lot of diverging approaches in the comments, so it might be useful to continue community engagement on the topic here (thanks Denis Wallez, for alerting me to this). This is a good example of the grey areas that arise when copyright and the TOS come into play, so it is important for us to become savvy on how to vote in these situations! The rejected niche (and associated comments): ...
Question

Downvote comments by known trolls as AUP violations?

Malkazoid ·
A question for the community. @MOLLY O suggested we downvote their content and comments as low quality if they are trolling posts. I'm wondering if AUP violation is a possibility too? After all, the troll is violating the AUP (or should be seen as such) by using a dummy account to cause disruptions and malign the network. Thoughts?
Suggestion

Display number of comments with direct link to comments section

Chris Savadge ·
When browsing content there appears to be no way to see the number of comments. When opening a post, there's no quick way to reach the comments section. Suggestion: As a Narrator (post author and reader) I would like to see the number of comments displayed per post (both on an overview page, like "Discover" and in post view) with the link to jump directly to the comments section. This will avoid scrolling and provide a quick way to engage with other users via comments.
Question

Can you turn comments into their own posts?

Christina Gleason ·
Is it possible for you to copy or move a comment I made on another thread to make it a suggestion? https://community.narrative.org/support/topic/17786016704209756?reply=17786016704296747#17786016704296747 If you can't, I'll have to do it the hard way and make sure the image attachment shows up in the right place.

Include in Notifications the ability to follow a post's comments

Malkazoid ·
Hello all, Right now, the only way to know there has been a new comment on a post, is if you are tagged by it. It seems intuitive that Notifications will include a post's author being able to receive notifications if a new comment appears on their own post. While Notifications are still in the design and development phase, I'd like to suggest we include the ability for any Narrator to subscribe to be notified of new comments on any post. This will greatly increase engagement and facilitate ...

Possibility to give a reason for the removal of a post from a niche.

Vico Biscotti ·
Removing posts from niches can be controversial, and you usually have only two options: removing without giving a reason for it or leaving a public comment. But the comment section is not a proper place for this "service" communication. I would be useful to give an optional reason for the removal, which is notified to the author, and available in the details of the activity item.

Niche suggester name on approval page

Malkazoid ·
Hey, When voting to approve niches, the page we land on when we click on a niche from the list of niches voting page, is a page with the following: - Niche name and description - Vote yes or no section - A summary of stats about the niche's approval - List of current votes for and against - Comments The username of the person who suggested the niche is completely lacking from this page. It makes it difficult to address comments directly to the niche suggester, which is something we often do...
Issue

Broken links in comments

Vico Biscotti ·
It happens that correct links, put in comments, become broken (saw that happening in posts too). What seems to happen is that "..." is inserted in the middle of link, but - occasionally - the original link is not kept. Instead, the shown link, with "..." is used, which is of course broken.
Suggestion

Paragraphs spacing in comments

Vico Biscotti ·
I noticed that many users (myself included) have to insert blank lines between paragraphs, especially in long comments, because spacing between paragraphs is not there. But those lines are an unnecessary excessive spacing, and also a bit confusing, because the excessively "split" the comment. Like it happens with posts, it would help if paragraphs had spacing - by style - between them. No extra blank line would be needed.
Suggestion

Nested Comments

Joe Varadi ·
Nested Comments - like we see on Facebook, Reddit, Medium, and every other mature social medium platform. I see a few other users have mentioned this, @Andreas Hauser, @Malkazoid, @Colleen Ryer, @Christina Gleason, but there is no dedicated thread to this topic and so it may have gotten lost in the whirlwind of Other Wonderful Suggestions.

Automatic Suggestions

Dotman ·
hello narrative community! 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?
Suggestion

View of like and unlike and key answer comments to comment in sub-folders of comments.

Dotman ·
Hello, it would be appreciated to have as a feature the ability to see who put like or unlike in narrative posts. This is because it creates more transparency on those who comment in a way and provides different feedback (Example: "How nice the post I liked it very much!" - Unlike on the post). Furthermore, being able to respond to a comment in particular with a nice "answer" button under the comment would not be a bad thing ...

Comment url

Vico Biscotti ·
As you may want to share links to stories, you may want to point at a specific comment, maybe to share it (it just happened that I wanted to share a comment as the attachment of an issue here, for example). It would be useful to be able to get the url of the comment (which probably also requires a single page view for the comment, with a link to the story).
Issue

Links doesn't work in post comments

BloggerKrunal ·
I recently added a comment with some links on this post . The author said on one of my post that the links are broken. So I checked again and discovered that it got shortened by having some dots in between. Now I tried to replace it again in that comment so it works well but the last link of community site I left it as it is. So we can fix it. As it's still broken.

Possibility to see comments in the author's profile

Vico Biscotti ·
It happens to me of wanting to check one of my past comments or one of another member. Comments can be an important part of a member's activity. It's content anyway. On Medium, you can see the list of the comments of any member and it's very useful and often used. When you follow a person you may also want to follow his or her opinions around. I see this suggestion in two parts. Certainly, I'd like to see my comments in my profile (even privately, if public is not judged ok). But I'd also...
Question

Why don't my votes and comments show up in my activity feed?

VC Nickels ·
There's a post that I commented on that I wanted to go back to and for the life of me I can't find it. I looked in my activity feed thinking it would show there but it doesn't. I'd have thought that votes and, or at least, comments would show up in my activity feed. If I'm missing something, please point me in the right direction. If I'm not and they don't show, please consider this a suggestion.

Notifications on comments

Vico Biscotti ·
We can currently miss all of the comments to our posts, if users don't pay attention to mention us. I get a notification if they mention me in a comment, but only in that case. That's inconsistent and a missed opportunity of engagement. The "someone commented" (my post or niche submission) feature is more than a suggestion, considering that every other platform has those notifications and that there's no other way to systematically check those comments.

So after some discussion yesterday about Reputations feeling like on Pause and not going up, ironically I noticed mine went down few points today.

Problematic post deletion - potential solution

Christina Gleason ·
Perhaps posts could be "archived" instead of "deleted" - a sort of Post Purgatory for things people want to delete but are still visible to @Narrative Network Team. This would prevent members from posting problematic content (both posts AND comments) and deleting it to avoid negative consequences. I am not a programmer, so I can only explain it in the terms of what things would look like to moderators and admin. When a member hits "delete post" or "delete comment," it does not instantly...

Since we don't get notified of comments on content we've published unless someone specifically tags our username in the comment, can we do something about that? I don't necessarily want an email telling me every time someone comments on my posts, but if we had something like the community support alerts on the beta, that would be fantastic. If that's going to take a while to roll out, could we get a simple display of how many comments each post has, both when browsing the content feeds and...

Re: Deleting a comment on a niche approval page can cause the broken robot of doom

Malkazoid ·
Addendum - it is Saturday evening so I doubt anyone will attend to this until Monday, but just thought I'd point out the niche approval that is currently suffering from this problem: it is The Beatles. And because that approval currently lists on page 3 of niche approvals, that page is completely inaccessible right now, at least for me. So a pretty disruptive problem since anyone trying to access the approvals on that entire page of approvals, will be whacked with the robot of doom.

Re: Deleting a comment on a niche approval page can cause the broken robot of doom

Malkazoid ·
Another observation. The robot of doom kindly proposes that we submit a support ticket, and I can tell from the URL it points us to that it will allow you to track error data internally and correlate it with the comments of what the user was doing when the error occurred. Right now, clicking that link leads to a "Uh oh, there's nothing there." page. The link I used when I experienced this was: https://alpha.narrative.org/ge...4574-khgxj%3C%2Fp%3E

Re: Cover songs niche

So, I have a question, please: I was looking at niches that need moderators and I came across a niche suggested by a founder called Grand Theft Auto. There is no description of that niche (which I sought), and it was approved. I'm curious; is this niche about the movie, how to do it, how to survive it, how to get away with it, how to do time for it, or...? (I'm sure you don't know, btw.) For me, this niche is somewhat strange because of its 'theft' wording, and I'm wondering about the type...

Re: Cover songs niche

David Dreezer ·
Actually, no, the name of the Niche is GTA. The description is Grand Theft Auto. GTA is a commonly used abbreviation for games of the series. Almost always on game review sites, industry news sites, and sites of that nature it isn't "Grand Theft Auto 4," it's "GTA4." But it's a poor description, I don't know what it meant.... No, it's not. It is a perfectly fine description for people that do know what it means and if you don't know then you're not the Niche's target. And now you know.

Hey Jayme! I was hoping this thread would be about the Cover Songs niche. My take on the GTA niche: it was voted in very early (April 2018), pretty much right at the beginning of the Alpha. I think now, I would have considered the description lacking because the word 'game' should be in there somewhere. @David Dreezer and I disagree on this approach. He feels it is enough for people who know the game to be able to find it, but to me, that's ignoring half of the role of content. Content isn't...

So we still don't have any answers about intellectual property rights and things like the Cover Songs niche . This is an important thing to discuss, with various international organizations making harsh penalties for violating intellectual property rights, like Article 13 in the EU. Twitch, the livestreaming platform, has suspended and banned long-time popular streamers for playing unlicensed music on their channels because Twitch doesn't want to get sued for hosting copyright violations...
