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...

So pages 27-29 touch on this but might not be explicit enough on this particular question. There is this on page 28 under the Human Moderation subsection: "2. Human Moderation All Niche and Brand channels have their own moderators, responsible for policing and curating the content within their channels. Each Narrator also acts as personal moderator for their own Journal, allowing them to remove or disable comments. " I take policing to implicitly include what you are talking about and the...

@MichelleG thank you for this. it is very helpful. I agree I think Tribunal will have to really work for their 3%. But i think it would be interesting. It would be nice if tribunals got a recognition that always remained on their profile. Like a Tribunal 2018 that always stayed, as I think there is a respect not only for the year you put into the job, but also how early on that you did it. Or if you served multiple years.

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...

Thanks for posting this. Comments are important! They are the foundation of making it engaging. I do like how this comment system allows you to quote someone. It makes it very easy to follow along. I don't like how some platforms post hierarchy is based on reputation. Comments need to flow as they come in. I would like to think that we don't need to implement a reward system for comments, in either monetization or just reputation, however I am not sure if people will engage otherwise. As an...

I agree. I've noticed that the comments section in the voting is very under used. It could be very useful if people have suggestions to the proposer or want to explain why they voted a particular way.

Could a comment when voting be made mandatory or is that an overkill? It would prevent people voting without giving any consideration?

NP...happy to help. One thing to remember is that voting down something should only be based on whether something is redundant. There is no personal preference. Also Micro-niches or sub-category niches are allowed, even if the Niche owner of a broad topic doesn't like it. When something is redundant legitimately, usually someone has left a comment saying so. Hope that helps.

Hey @RobbyCannard there already is an option to leave your reason for why you voted down something. And it is very helpful to the person suggesting the niche. I think no votes should include a mandatory reason to why you are voting it down so that we can reduce trolling and/or profiteering.

I'm not sure about mandatory. It might discourage people from voting but if someone votes no, it's probably a good idea to explain why. I've noticed one or two of the same people who seem to down vote the most innocuous topics again and again.

Fair point, I agree with you though, it would be good to have the option to provide some reasoning behind the vote. Maybe not mandatory but encouraged

I really like the TAKE ACTION feature on Narrative. I have had to edit a few posts due to rushing and typing on a phone.

Indeed! Sub-niches are an important aspect of the ecosystem of tags that are niches. To embrace this, I suggested a sub-niche (US Politics) to one of my niches (Politics) as a way of embracing this reality. If there is a sub-niche to one of your niches that you don't want to have stealing too much thunder from it - buy it if possible.

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...

Re: Activity - views and likes

Hey @Michael Farris I guess I should have been more specific. I was referring to activity measurement on the launch platform of Narrative. Hence the mention of advertising (of which there is none here), and of network rewards (as opposed to community rewards). I'm very grateful for the community rewards, but that has never been a focus of my posting here: 99 percent of my interest and energy for these forums goes to contributing what I can to Narrative as a platform. Here, I'm interested in...

Michael Farris ·
It's a pretty simple activity algorithm suitable for building traffic and content. Yes, likes and shares and similar social activities have an effect. That's why we use it for this phase of the community rewards. That's also why it doesn't even come close to how reputation will work in Narrative. We don't publish the exact algorithm or the rolling point tally because of human nature AKA gaming the system is hard to filter out from genuine contributions. PS. This forum software scoring system...

I ditto these concerns. After being away from Narrative for the past 8 days or so, I was surprised how many new redundant niches had been suggested. I left comments but I know it is such a mute issue, as it is hard to find them. Especially for newbies.

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 )...

I'm always looking through possible comments when I see a niche with less than 100%, and am posting them myself. But yes, I'd suggest the comments to appear as a javascript pop-out box by clicking a little button near the 2 vote buttons, or something.

Yes we're definitely on top of the comments visibility issue...something that will be addressed in the future UI. I agree it would be helpful to surface those better. Tagging our @Matt Brooks

Another means of tightening the voting/commenting process would be to send alert emails to anyone who has voted on a niche, if a new comment is made on that niche ballot. Of course people could opt in for this, but I would suggest the platform should strongly encourage opting in to this. Remind people that how they vote becomes part of their reputation, and if new comments shed light on niches that helps them change their votes in the right direction, over time this will have a significant...
