Thanks - will share with our design team! Here is a breakdown of what's next from Brian's blogpost : Here’s what you can expect leading up to beta launch: December 2018 Network Stats Overview This release will add a section to Narrative HQ that features the following stats: number of members, monthly active users (MAU), Network Rewards pool balance, purchased Niches, approved Niches, and number of Niche Owners. Post beta release, we’ll continue to build out this section to include additional...

Re: The Updated Narrative Alpha is Here!

Congratulations on the fine work - design and execution. So much of the usability is improved now: it was a pleasure to suggest a new niche and vote! And I chuckled at this phrase on the profile page: "Existentially this is who you are. Whoa." I was lucky and had no log in issues. Everything has been fully functional so far: I'll be sure to let you know if any weirdness pops up. I think it is official now... For the past couple of months it was tangible that you have assembled a great team.

Feedback from a niche owner I introduced to Narrative

Malkazoid ·
Over the past 12 months, I've been wavering about whether the current execution of the platform is of a standard to warrant reaching out to people about Narrative. After the recent release, I've reached a conclusion - trying to involve other people with the project currently is almost certainly a waste of time, and a waste of that precious first impression. Denis Wallez became aware of Narrative when I started posting about the project on G+. I've had a number of exchanges with him on G+...

Great post @Malkazoid . As the second most active person on the BOTH Narrative platforms, I very much concur with what he has said. One, only has to immerse themselves in another burgeoning community similar to Narrative, to understand immediately, how it is universally understood that pay-to-play or specifically pay-to-say, is not the way to get to mass adoption, in the early stages. @Narrative This isn't a game. It isn't am experiment. Many of us gave you real money out of our real lives.

@malkazoid I appreciate what you’re saying and respect your opinion, but I don’t agree with your assessment of the project. I’ve been involved with a number of start-up projects, from apps to non-profits to large websites to video games and am not at all dismayed by where Narrative currently is. I think it’s important to acknowledge that we are in ALPHA. Obviously development stages are somewhat arbitrary, but when I think back to when, for example, I was alpha testing one of my currently...

Finally, I got around to reading the discussion. Denis does make some good points, despite going too far in his accusations. Like @Banter , I don't get the flak over paying for validation. It's a minor issue compared to other user experience issues. Some things could change on that end perhaps, but unowned niche content is a much bigger issue, IMO. Bigger than that even, is not listening to your Alpha testers. It seems like there are quite a few early Alpha testers who are upset about some...

Hi Mark, Useful feedback thank you!

Re: IMPORTANT - Get on the "Voted for Narrative on Kucoin" List

Malkazoid ·
Yes, that's a fair summary I think. Right now, with scant trading options, there is no way for Narrative to reach a healthy volume of trading, which leaves us stuck at this point of low valuation, anemic volume and the need for new alpha users to be able to purchase NRVE. Beyond stability, it offers visibility, and a positive confidence boost for the project for those who operate in the crypto sphere. Unlike you and me who see primarily the value of the project itself, with the currency as...

Cost of niche renewal

Paolo Ciccone ·
Hi. First of all, thank you for setting up Narrative and the alpha program. This is an exciting initiative and I'm honored to be part of it. I was reviewing the rules for niche ownership renewal. Can we discuss the fee system? The way it's structured now, the owner will pay either the smaller price, for a niche that is preactically dead, or 20% of the revenues generated the previous year. This is a bit steep. The renewal is practically a 20% tax on income. Considering that the owner will...

DASH NICHE

MiguelIglesias ·
I've been a bit disconnected from the Narrative ecosystem, so I'm sorry if something I say is redundant or incorrect. I have seen that there is a lot of activity on Twitter aimed at the owners of niches and their relationship with the moderators, but I am not very up to date and I am not sure what it is about. If there are volunteers to moderate my Dash niche and the term is already open, I will happily accept the suggestion. See you in Narrative!

Re: How Narrative Beats Minds by a Mile

Slaz ·
Highly unlikely. Narrative’s Alpha was initially built upon a closed-source codebase (of the Hoop.la platform used here) for which people pay subscriptions to use. The only situation for when I believe the team might consider going open-source is when Narrative is on the edge of failing, but of course we’re all hoping for it to succeed.

Re: How Narrative Beats Minds by a Mile

Malkazoid ·
I hear you Slaz. I suppose it depends upon the potential Narrative sees in the platform. If they see in it the potential to become a much bigger business than their previous activities, and if they recognize that open source can help fulfill that potential, they may recognize the value of going open source at some point in the future. We are often faced with the choice of letting go of things we once valued, in order to make room for things that will suit us better going forwards and outpace...

Re: Everyone In Narrative Should Buy Atleast 1000 NRV Token.

New Social Media ·
Dear Malay, I think that we should focus on advertisement and the quantity and quality of the content first, then the value of NRVE will increase automatically. And I am also very bullish on the longterm value of NRVE (some reasons: https://community.narrative.or...-ahead-for-narrative ) So in my opinion what we all should do now in the remaining two weeks before and also after the launch of the Beta: 1. find as many new users for the platform as possible, using other social media platforms...

Re: Wanted Features

Fantastic suggestions so far - that would reap immediate benefits for the process. Forgive me if this is already there and I'm just no seeing it: could we have the following centralised metrics: - a tally somewhere of how many Validated Niches there are - a tally of how many Niches under Evaluation there are - the number of members signed up for the Alpha - Niches Proposed per Member figure, that tells us exactly how well we are doing in terms of member participation in the process I feel...

Re: Wanted Features

Hi again, I just thought of other features that might be interesting to see. 1) for a niche a ratio of founders (or in a later period members) who voted to all founders (or members - later) who registered in alpha so far. I suppose it would be nice to see it in the summary section of each niche, but it is just an idea. So each member would see how many other members voted for his niche compared to total number of people registered in. 2) another ratio: number of founders (or members) who...

In some ways it hugest social study, ever. It's been a fun to see how people discuss all of the principles behind Narrative, and then each little detail - in great detail. It's been a blast to see how people attack their niche decisions. Before the Alpha I was wondering will they go as huge and broad as possible, or do they narrow it down as tightly as they can? Will a lot of people jump in as soon as possible and try to nail their niche? Or wait on it and wait till the founders run out of...

It is very exciting @Harj ! I am finding myself constantly checking in on the niches and conversations. I hope there is some sort of posting version in the alpha version that will allow us to begin writing some content for our niches. It would be great to harness this enthusiasm while having some content in place when the beta version opens in the 4th quarter. I am sure the core team has thought of this already.

Re: PORN NICHE

Michael Farris ·
Very astute comments here. @Malkazoid in particular voices the variety of issues in play. It's not breaking any secrets to say the team is talking about the issues and will draft a default set of guidelines to get us started. Ultimately, the community at large will have a say in such matters and for now, I am telling people to vote as they want in the Alpha because that is the one place available for registering an opinion.

Re: DASH NICHE

Hi @MiguelIglesias . Welcome back. We launched the Moderator Center today and so I am glad you are seeing this on Twitter. People can self nominate for purchased niches starting today. Official voting/elections will not occur until the Beta. As an owner, you can select how many moderators you want for your Dash niche. The default is set to 2 now. To do this, feel free to browse around in the Alpha or simply read this blog post: The Moderator Center is live!

Re: PUBLICATIONS

You can create and post content in Narrative now to both your Personal Journal and Nches. The public won't be able to see this until we launch in March this year. If you are referring to the "Publications " channel we talk about in the Spec, that is not available in the Alpha at this time.

Re: Marketing and exchanges are they connected?

Don't worry... we have plans for promoting Narrative, and more specifically niches, since that is the focus of Chaucer. We need to get the word out about the purpose and value of niches and we plan to do so. Our goal is to have lots and lots of niches that have been claimed in advance of the launch of the beta so that users have a plethora of subject areas to express their interest in (and post to). As for exchanges... the primary purpose now is to provide liquidity so that people can use...

Confusion Over Niche Voting

Hey everyone- Just wanted to give a quick little (informal) update for the community. Things are really starting to come together on the platform. We've got personal content streams (based on niches you follow) working very well, as well as the Discover page (where you can see good content from across the network). Still wrangling a bit with niche content streams (and more specifically how we organize all of the components of a niche). Here's a little sneak peak of a working "Discover" page...

Re: Confusion Over Niche Voting

I noticed this pattern in voting. What can I say. Humans are fallible. We must be extremely careful to include safeguards in our processes, and not leave them entirely up to the wisdom of moderators, or even tribunals of elected members. We need something akin to a constitution that delineates that actions contrary to it can be overturned. PS I too have approved every niche so far. They all meet the criteria.

Re: Confusion Over Niche Voting

Thanks @Malkazoid , I think you're right. If Ted hadn't voted to reject my Niche, I think I would have just chocked it up as "confused voter syndrome"... But Ted did vote, and he's supposed to know this stuff.

Re: Confusion Over Niche Voting

Hi Bryan, I noticed this too. Seemed odd to me as well. But don't fret too much...When i voted for it, it popped you up into 63% with that one vote. There is hardly any members there yet. I am sure you will have more than enough votes from this small community as it begins to log on.

Re: Confusion Over Niche Voting

Thanks @Emily Barnett I'm not too worried about the voting, just the Ted part of it. It's also surprising that @Rosemary 's proposed Niche, Beach Life, is also getting some serious hostility. Just shows people are voting with their affinities and aesthetic preferences! I need to remember this is the very first Niche voting experience. The team will sort it out.

@mrgoodsett Thanks. I tried to be as succinct as possible in the description. But, after getting downvotes, I pasted the text into a Flesch-Kincade text analyzer and it registered as an 19th-grade reading level. So, maybe the downvotes were really just confused votes? I dunno. It's definitely more complicated than Dogs.

Oh man @mrgoodsett I shudder to think what my grade is at.. I abhor the idea of dumbing down writing.... I like the notion of evolving not devolving... but I get your point. Simple language leads to less confusion. I must keep this in mind when it is my turn to suggest a niché.
