I confess to also having downvoted Beach Life and "Oil or Life", however after reading this post I can see that we need as many niches as possible to accommodate as many different views as possible - so I have now changed my vote. Thanks for changing my mind :-)
I imagine that each person is going to come up with their own voting habits, but hopefully everyone will give Niches benefit of the doubt and only downvote sparingly, when necessary. I'm anxious to see what patterns emerge.
@Andreas Hauser thanks, yeah—I did the same thing with Dogs (which I love). I was thinking it has to be "unique" as in "interesting"—not "unique" as in "distinct". And like @ClosetCrypto said, regardless of whether or not I even understand what the Niche is, I'll vote for it if it's distinct.
Currently, there are 44 Niches, and NO redundant proposals. However, only 10 of the 44 have a 100% approval score. This means 77% of the proposed Niches have met with resistance by the voting community. Clearly we need some voter education ! I have two solutions which are completely agnostic to the level of effort required to implement! Force rejection votes to select WHICH reason they are using to reject a Niche. (a) Redundant, or (b) Violates ToS Exclude members from receiving community...
Don't know if I agree with this. I haven't voted for a few of the Niches because simply I do not think the subject is well described nor I fully understand what it is. If we vote "Yes" for every single Niche just because "We are a supportive community," then we should just skip the voting altogether. My 2 cents
I think that is the problem. Just because someone doesn't know what Darning Lore is, doesn't mean the one who submitted it isn't deeply connected with content creators from the sock-darners subculture and the seedy back-alleys of underground knitters & stitchers. The Niche proposer is the one who sees its potential. The community is here to vet redundancy and violation of terms. Language is important—similar to the Niche "owner" fiasco... "voting" is presenting its own set of...
@EDUARDO HERNÁNDEZ , I totally agree. There are so far several niches where the description could be done better. The "oil or life" niche is a good example. Although I voted for this niche, since I suppose I know what the topic should represent and it is generally ok for me, I would really like to see some possibility to modify the niche description (only by its creator) after it was proposed and possibly discussed by other members. At the end, there could be people who are also interested...
I would have to disagree. Voting is not mandatory. If you don't feel like something deserves a Yes vote doesn't automatically mean you have to vote No. The 3rd option is to just not vote at all on that Niche. Just because I don't understand something or think it isn't properly described is not justification enough for me to cast a No vote. As always, just my thoughts.
@Soňa , once you have won the auction for a niche, you can submit name and description updates, which are subsequently voted on by the community according to the same criteria used for new niches (not redundant and no TOS violations). Thus, the name and description is not locked in, so I wouldn't let it stop you from bidding on a niche that isn't quite phrased the way you like.
Thanks Brian. The clarification about revisibility of both the name and description is helpful. In light of this, I don't think it will depress niche or overall value to have some arguably (and arguable not) optically imperfect names or descriptions transiently hanging about pre-beta. Folks can just all help each other out with descriptions. Even though we're just carving up an idea space, or perhaps precisely because we're carving up an idea space, descriptions and labels traditionally...
Hi Brian, thanks for your reply ! I understand that it is probably easier to solve the problem with niche names and description after the whole auction is finished and there is enough time and space to deal with that. On the other hand, what if I buy a niche where I am not really satisfied with the description and then I would not be able to change it... saying differently, I would be buying an unfinished product where I am not certain how it will turn out. Well I suppose that niche...
I'd say don't worry about percentages. If your niche is appropriate, it will make it to the next round (you only need 50+% approval rate, after all). I was miffed myself at the beginning because my suggestion was CLEARLY unique but got over it once I realized it'll pass anyway.
HI Bryan I have been re-adjusting some of my votes and listening to the conversation here and like your point on If someone proposes a Niche, there's a good chance that they do so because they believe there is content to support it. thanks for the better undertanding this really helps me and I can improve my voting approach. thanks bro
Great suggestions and something I definitely see implemented over time. I think the Personal Journal Platform can also act as a Social Profile and everyone can add each other there. Don't quote me on that but it would make the most sense. Personal Journals will have a lot of components to them that are not quite detailed yet but I assume there will be plenty parts of that platform you can make private and public. Niches will always be a huge part of the platform but Personal Journals will be...
Private messaging is important. given that many people on here remain anonymous it is important for us to have a way to connect with niche owners, moderators and content makers. This feature would be good to have asap. I know there are people already whom would like to speak more privately about purchased niches and intentions to moderate or contribute. Although I have nothing to hide, I don't always want to speak through a bull horn. You know what I mean?
@Alex Shepherd it is true that private messaging is very standard, but currently we don't have it, and I am already finding that I need it. I don't mind the small forum within a niche, but again the private message is important when moderators may need to reject content that has been submitted. This under no circumstances should be public. So although it seems obvious to ask for private messaging....i think it is very important, as well as a priority feature.
@Dennis is Lbry a blockchain token earning platform. I didn't see anything eluding to that. I know of this one. MITH I haven't taken the time to read the white paper. there is also Civil and I started a thread about Civil that you can read here
One of the winners of Microsoft dApps competition: https://github.com/ANDIT-Solutions/neo-esignature to mark your content to prevent misuse later. Wouldn't solve the misuse of content already existing immediately, but could be useful to secure your.
Oh that is interesting...Are they expecting people to upload a jpeg of their actual signature though? Or an avatar perhaps? Not sure how comfortable i would be putting my actual signature all over the internet.
I think it is safer than that. The straightforward way of identifying documents on Blockchain is to create a hash of the document - which is a code that uniquely identifies that document by performing some math on the bits and bytes that make up the document. That identifying code can than be stored on the Blockchain in association with your wallet, proving that you submitted the document to the chain and when.
Oh well that is interesting. You mean it might not be based on the timing of posting it, but rather who has a better rank. Hmmm I see the merit for that but also the pitfalls. Steemit is so top heavy advantaged it is so difficult for newbies to get started with a huge drop off rate for prolonged participation. maybe there is a way to split the difference and let the moderate have a star per day or week or something, that they can highlight posts as exceptional content. that way we are both...
It would be nice if we could create a hierarchy within each Niche of preferred Narrator content from those who are consistently putting out excellent content, allowing those users to gain greater exposure in that Niche. Qualification could be based upon reputation and amount of previous content contributed, reducing the potential for favoritism from Niche Owners to users.
lbry.io is not blockchain based. But most of it is completely reusable. Before every content is in a blockchain file system we are 10 years further. We will have a hybrid for a long time. But blockchain is generally only for ledger and payment purposes. The real digital assets can always be encrypted on a different centralised storage. Blockchain / ledger just keeps track of the references.
Here's how I would solve it. The comments should be directly beneath the New Ballot description box, not hidden in a sub tab. The summary tab can be thrown out too: all that data can be included in the New Ballot description box, in a smaller font so that it is nice and compact, right under the words "BALLOT (NEW NICHE)". Result - the main page for voting on that niche has the comments right in front of you, impossible to miss. Hopefully his is an easy fix for the @Narrative Network Team
Love this. Would it be possible to have: - One 'super' vote every 24 hours to use on Niche voting? You could choose to use it on one niche where it would have double the weight as a normal vote? - Leaderboard of top voted Niche's every month - When the Niche's are live, a Leaderboard for top activity niches - On-line shop to sell merchandise Not sure if these have already been suggested or if the are valid, I'm new to this so please be kind
When you block a person, they can no longer invite you to a private message or post to your profile wall. Replies and comments they make will be collapsed/hidden by default. Finally, you'll never receive email notifications about content they create or likes they designate for your content.
Note: if you proceed, you will no longer be following .
