Ad Revenue and Content Item Score

MichelleG ·
So, this is a post where I'm trying to get clear in my head the relationship between ad revenue and what the narrative organization, content creators, owners and moderators etc. will actually get paid. The owners and moderators payout is parasitic on the content creators' so we can just look at that. I'm new to all this so if somebody could correct any egregious errors, please please do so. In advance , the TL;DR for this post is as follows: How the reputation system works is going to...

Hello Michelle, Your story lost me a little - forgive me if I've got this all wrong. But I don't see the concern with the Cake guy subsidising the Lord Ruler? In what way is he subsidising him? As far as I've understood, the Lord Ruler simply commented on the Cake guy's content. That comment is the Lord Ruler's contribution - his content. In so far as it is liked, and commented upon in turn, it would represent activity attributable to the Lord Ruler? If the comment is useless and...

So, first of all. THANK YOU for wading through that long, unwieldy post. In this case, I can defintely say - It's not you, it's me. There are several different cases I'm interested in, mostly just for the purpose of thinking about how REP will be calculated and play into content score. Here are two: CASE ONE) Before CAKE hits the big time, the Lord Ruler is potentially dragging CAKE down with his negative reputation. (Lord Ruler is not being subsidized on CASE ONE ). a)If we keep adding...

@MichelleG I too am trying to keep up...but I think I get the gist of the questions here, and they are good ones. A major reputation change on a major content provider has more impact that just that person, but also involved moderators and niche owners stand could also stand to loose out, depending on how the rep system works. I want to ruminate on this for a minute. I just woke up and my brain is still foggy...but something tells me it doesn't have to have an effect. caffeine will help me...

Haha - no worries. I'm guilty of the same on a regular basis. Understood. @Emily Barnett homed in on the simplest solution I think. Increase recomputing frequency. Another approach would be to apply an average at the end of longer periods. The trade off is processing power vs storage. Taking an average at longer intervals requires more data storage to compute the average from. Increased recomputing frequency requires more cpu power to bake in weekly, or daily, or even hourly changes in...

There's a whole science to building the software for ads (or using someone else's) which basically has the local baker adding geographical location specific keywords so she can get ads seen just by people in her area without getting outbid for that combination of keywords. So {"Santa Monica", "Cake"} will usually be cheaper than {"Cake"}, for example. And that makes sense because the Santa Monica person might be interested in buying cakes made in their area, but not someone in Boston.

Niche membership privacy

Malkazoid ·
I was asked the following question by a G+ user today, about Narrative: That's G+ speak for: will everyone be able to see what niches you are a follower of, and will everyone be able to see all your posts by looking at your profile? That's an approximate translation, considering G+ circles are a social networking component that Narrative has no equivalent for, and apparently no plans to implement. (This lack of a strongly social component to the Narrative paradigm may prove to be...

Hi Malk, In Narrative all posts are public. There is no concept of private posts. Everything you post is out there to be seen. Now, as to which Niches you're following, that's different, and is part of your Member Profile. Right now there is no way for anyone to view what Niches another individual is following, what other Members they may be following. As we move along though, visibility of some of those things will become options that you as a Member will to able to decide. You'll be able...

Question

What Initiative We create To Attract And Guide New Users In Our Platform

MALAY BANERJEE ·
Its great that Narrative Beta will go live on 03 th April . I want to ask our community members and administration that is there any special steps or initiative narrative taken to monitize new user's creative contents as a special gift to attract new user in our beloved narrative platform. I think narrative should give some special gift to early creator. Narrative should creates new attractive agenda for benefiting every new creators initially to attract new user's in narrative platform .

I'm promoting Narrative on Twitter and Linkedin. Unfortunately, since 99% of my friends on Facebook have no crypto interest/knowledge, it's harder to promote it there. It will be much easier if I on-board them by sharing my sex stories exclusively in Narrative before hitting my blog. I have a lot of traction with my dirty existential writing among my networks

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

Yes, great stuff indeed. But, jokes aside, I think exclusive, quality content, is the key to make Narrative hit the ground running. Medium has done it, to great success. Whereas Steemit has failed to accomplish that, plagued with multiple copy/pasted duplicated content and low quality, mindless chatter. Let's be Medium, but better. And free.

Agreed, and I think Narrative will probably quote in fiat whenever appropriate, perhaps similarly to the way Steemit does... or perhaps differently. There is a discussion to be had about obscuring NRVE too much though. It all depends on what the goal is for the currency. If the idea is that we will design incentives to hold NRVE because it benefits the community in major ways for it to appreciate, then NRVE can't be hidden away like an embarrassing cousin who drools and gropes his relatives.

I think the whole argument of "owning my content" and "being paid for my content" are great selling points, specially if we bash Facebook for their inmoral data exposure and trading practices. Though, my main concern -and one of Narrative's biggest challenges- is, hands down, filling the gap between crypto and fiat. We need to offer our users a fiat gateway, for probably at least 50% have no idea what crypto is, nor they will see the use to it. So saying "we'll give you XXX tokens" will...

Hehe, I do indeed see what you are doing there... Yes, I'm glad you're mindful of the Crypto focus that many early adopters inevitably have. From what I can see, there will be a fairly broad array of interests represented in the first niches, and then it will be up to the niche owners and their early adopters to create an attractive space and content that embodies their niche successfully. Crypto may be somewhat overrepresented initially, but as long as the platform is well designed, this...

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

I'm on board with that. It's not my intention to obscure our token in any way, but I think we have to educate our users about crypto through the token. But, as I said, the token in itself might not be important, in the beginning, to the average content generator. Also, I'd hate Narrative to become just another Cryptocurrency subreddit. Crypto should be just another niche, and never the main focus. That's the only way to thrive and survive in this competitive medium (see what I did there? )

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

Same here. I think the true value of Narrative lies in quality content and democratic participation of authors of all walks of life, with their own points of view and beliefs. Crypto is fascinating, but we shouldn't narrow down our focus an be secluded in such a small niche.

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

As @CryptoPhil points out, there is still a big lack of knowledge of crypto, from what it is to what you can do with it. It'd be nice if the platform offers a real world case for the use of the token (ex. buying Narrative merch with NRVE,) and also if it displays the token balances in your account with their fiat value, so less crypto savvy people still gets an idea of what their tokens are worth (which is what steemit is doing.)

This is awesome, and helpful (especially since some of the suggestions get buried inside long, intense discussions and are hard to surface).

Then choose "support topic." On that page, for topic type,...

How about a niche suggestion tool? Just look at the content I wrote in the box and tell me which niches fit. Also, why only three niches? One of my frustrations with Steemit is I can only have five tags for a post. Why? If my content matches fifteen different content categories, why can't I tag it for all fifteen categories? I tend to write long posts so five tags doesn't cut it. On Narrative, a post may only fit into one niche. Fine. But what if it fits into six or seven? What harm would it...

That makes sense. I wonder if the end user who is not a niche owner or moderator will understand that. That's the kind of thing that needs to be communicated at the user level. Knowing that, as a user, I can choose the owners and moderators I want to reward.

@Garden Gnome Publications I think that the three niche limit might have something to do with rewards, not necessarily for the content creator, but for the moderators and niche owners. At least, that's the most likely explanation my brain could conjure. Publishing content in too many niches would dilute the rewards for each niche the same content appears in. If it was just about tagging, I would agree that there would be no good reason to limit how tags to just three. But because of the...

I think it could be argued that as a user experience, having too many tags means the same content can just end up getting plastered everywhere, and the platform could look quite repetitive. Especially in the early days.

Yeah, then you run the risk of creating user silos where early adopters support other early adopters and leave the rest behind. We certainly wouldn't want to create an aristocratic echo chamber. I don't think it would serve the platform well. @Emily Barnett , that's a good point. I think it could end up looking like a content farm, especially early on, if we're not careful.

Yeah, the thought literally had never occurred to me until you asked the question, and then I realized what a responsibility it is as a content creator - and as an owner and moderator - to build relationships to foster mutual success. Those of us here in the alpha who actively post here in the community forums (or at least commenting on suggested niches) have a bit of a head start on the whole thing. If I was torn between several niches for my third niche for any given piece of content, I...

@Garden Gnome Publications It's human nature. But I don't think the risk of an echo chamber is really that high. We all have a fixed limit on the number of niches we can own, and most of the time, we're probably not going to have the luxury of "knowing" the relevant niche owners, even one out of three.

With regard to photos, I'd like to be able to right and justify them. Also, the ability to include tables would be nice. And a place to include a footer so that all personal journal entries can have the same footer material without having to copy/paste it every time. In fact, being able to store multiple footers (one for each different type of post, for instance) would be nice.

This is a great suggestion. Some niche owners may not want duplicate content even if the content creator owns that content. This would give them the ability to check it quickly and reject content that doesn't meet Niche guidelines.

Having used Copyscape in my work, it's untenable to expect owners and/or moderators to run every piece of content through Copyscape - which won't help with visual content that requires a different online tool. Some people already own 5 niches - and may soon own 10 - and have applied to be moderators on even more different niches. Not to mention that many of us intend to be content creators as well, and have actual day jobs too. Copyscape also isn't perfect, especially if you're writing an...

Agreed. If someone sends a DMCA notice for stolen content, Narrative will act on it in whatever manner they've determined, which likely won't involve the niche owners or moderators. It is not within the scope of owners or moderators to run plagiarism checks.

How should a normal niche owner be able to check if the content creator created the content himself or used someone else's? It's simply impossible to do within an acceptable amount of time. In my opinion every content creator must be held responsible for every upload, there is no other realistic option.

I agree there need to be safeguards for blatant plagiarism but pictures have a lot of contingencies such as art curation.

I agree with the sentiments above about needing a copyright check for content / images. It should definitely be high in the priority list since it seems like a ripe opportunity for abuse since people can easily earn rewards off of other peoples content. Along with that, if someone is found to have plagiarized, their reputation should take a serious hit to discourage it from happening again.
