Stop complaining about exchanges and help build a massive narrative community.

Daniel Kamara ·
I have only started to get heavily invested in crypto for close to 2 years now. But what I have learned in this short amount of time is that what makes a coin/token succeed is the community. So for the people who complain about when exchange or why the price has gone down, all you're doing is help create more doubt for possible investors. I was definitely one of those negative people who doubted Bitcoin back in 2009. I looked at it as a joke. I had friends and family ask my opinion on It and...

Thanks @Daniel Kamara for a ++ perspective. As we've been posting since day one of the ICO, the value of NRVE is in the active platform. There thousands and then millions will be using NRVE for all fees, rewards tips, advertising and more. It's the economy there that drives value. Those looking for quick returns in the opening days of exchanges, are, with respect, looking in the wrong place! Look ahead. The real question is not so much "when exchange" as it is "when platform?" For that we...

Hear, Hear. well said @Daniel Kamara ... I absolutely agree with you. It is so difficult being on telegram with so many FUD-de-duds, just acting so miserable. I think we need an army of positive people to get on telegram and talk about the constructive things that they do each day to build up Narrative in order to drown out the self-sabatoge that seems to be taking place. Thanks for the great post.

Thanks Emily - I'm easing back. The non-virtual world is demanding a lot from me: I hoped for some down time after this last trip but it just isn't in the cards. Good to 'see' you again!

It is hard to miss that the vast majority of the folks in question are in this for a quick buck. The crypto multi-bagger crowd. It's not pretty, to be honest - that level of greed, but ultimately I think it will cause many of them to pass by one of the sounder investments in the cryptocurrency space - Narrative. The smart money will go to working products, as opposed to pump and dump coins. The gains are less eye-watering in the short term, but the chances of success are higher. I expect...

Sometimes it becomes rather tedious and hard to go in and vote for niches - I notice you need to scroll through all of them (even ones you voted for) and the ones that are "new" or you still need to vote on are sometimes in the middle, and only visible because you have the arrows on them.. Don't suppose we could get a filter of some sort to make it easier to only see the ones that need voting? *Also separate gripe - "Pencils" seriously?

@chrisabdey - the good news is that you can actually see the Niches you voted for (it should show your vote and ask if you want to change). Maybe concentrate on the ones that are on the first page that are expiring.

Not sure if I should start a new topic but a few days ago I suggested Insects....today someone suggested Insects aand Amphibians. ....? What do you think about that sort of thing? It seems like it should be 2 separate niches.

Re: Rock the Vote!

MOLLY O ·
@Crystal . There can certainly be "related niches". See this blog about Niche Relationships . The community will vote to see if this is a duplicate…but I can see how this one is a bit on the grey line. Ideally the first one proposed should get the thumbs up. You can vote the other one down (Insects and Amphibians) and indicate why. Suggest you include a comment that suggest that this focus on just Amphibians….or something to that effect. Others who are voting will then see your note. The...

Goodness....just looking through the list of Niche's that need votes and it is a bit overwealming....not to mention time consuming. Could the @Narrative Network Team make the ballot box sortable, so at the very least I can see the Niches I haven't voted for yet on top? I'm wondering if we should incentivize Niche voting from a community perspective....I know reputation will be affected if you are voting against the majority, but I don't think it takes a hit if you aren't voting...which makes...

@BANTER. Thanks for getting in there and trying to vote. Right now, I don't anticipate any changes to Chaucer on the ballot box. Our developers are heads down right now and focused on the beta. We do recognize that Niche ballot box voting can be a bit overwhelming. The good news is you can actually see if you voted so skip by those. Some of us on the Narrative Team who spend a lot more time in the Niches have been going in there and adding comments (e.g., there is already a niche with...

Redundant/invalid niches - report them here

Malkazoid ·
Redundancy anyone? As you all probably know - Narrative niches need to be unique, clear, correctly spelled, and to not violate the Terms of Service . To coordinate down-voting of redundant or invalid niches, rather than creating dozens of threads, we can alert the community here in one place. Bookmark the thread for easy access, and follow the thread to be alerted via email when there are new posts. Remember - voting to validate or invalidate niches under review, builds your Narrative...

A couple of redundant niches to get us started - help avoid these going to the Tribunal for determination (which chews up energy the @Narrative Network Team could be using to build the platform)!

@Malkazoid . Thanks for starting this thread. I have a handful of potential duplicates identified that have already been approved by the Community and being sent to the Tribunal. So, the earlier we recognize the duplicates the better. Also, beyond this thread (which will be very useful), remember to put comments in when voting. I think it really helps. People can agree or disagree with comments, but they are still helpful and will get voters thinking.

Ok, so don't hate on me. I like pandas. But the Panda niche has a problem. https://alpha.narrative.org/ballot/10464048070848469 The description says it is about the Giant Panda, but there are several types of pandas out there. So either the niche name needs to become Giant Panda, or the description needs to be changed to include all pandas. As it currently stands, the niche needs to be down voted. When the beta platform launches, how well presented the niches are will have a very direct...

https://alpha.narrative.org/ballot/10323310573468737 This niche is a mouthful: BITTUBE - MONETIZE YOUR CONTENT & FREDOM OF SPEECH & DECENTRALIZED MEDIA PLATFORM . Should we perhaps enforce a character limit for niche names, @Narrative Network Team ? The niche should really just be called Bittube, with the rest of the information placed in the description... For now though, there is a spelling mistake in the current name, so we should vote to disapprove of it in its current state.

Re: Redundant/invalid niches - report them here

Michael ·
Agreed. Besides, 'The Video Vault' already exists, and that's the function this Niche would serve, albeit with a different name. These spelling mistakes and other simple fixes in names should be able to be changed without having to go through a week of waiting. Either way, duplicate by function.

If it's an external website or platform, that's called a link. I'll have to let @Ted or @MOLLY O respond to this one, because if Narrative wanted external links, they'd probably just use Google. If we don't know what it is, needless to say, it will need to be specified.

Re: Redundant/invalid niches - report them here

Agree with you @Malkazoid . I voted down for misspelling. @Michael This would be a valid niche assuming it is not just a link. Assuming this niche is to be about posting content related to that platform.

Re: Redundant/invalid niches - report them here

Malkazoid ·
Hello Michael Bittube appears to be a streaming platform but it is external to Narrative, and so should be allowed to have a niche dedicated to it. The Video Vault is a Narrative niche that I think hopes to be the home for videos people post to Narrative directly. I may be wrong, but I think that if the person who proposed Bittube makes a reasonable niche name, devoid of spelling mistakes - it should be acceptable.

Good questions! Niche creep may well be a thing, and it is difficult to predict how many resources will need to be devoted to keeping it in check. Before reading the full length of your post, I was of a mind that the niches are both valid and can coexist, because I saw the distinction that you mention: that Shopping seems to be all about shopping, and Shopping Haul seems to be specifically about sharing what got bought on the last shopping trip. (Neither are very interesting to me so I have...

Yeah @Michael , I don't know what the endgame regarding similar Niches is. It seems even the Tribunal doesn't care too much if Narrators have to 'duke it out' for content. I know I'm preparing for a 'fight' with at least one of my Niches

I'm not sure what the difference between "Shopping" and "Shopping Haul" would be. Shopping: https://alpha.narrative.org/niche/shopping Shopping Haul: https://alpha.narrative.org/ballot/10041739938077770 Hard to say, but if niches are very similar like this, their owners might end up fighting later on as to who has the valid space, it also might end up confusing members as to which niche to post in. Technically, they're different, but really they're not. My thought is, why have a niche for...

Talent acquisition phrase is used in two Niches. As someone that hires others on Upwork on a contract-basis, these two terms are interchangeable. Any thoughts?
Reply

Re: Redundant/invalid niches - report them here

Malkazoid ·
Yes - I agree they are interchangeable. Worse still: there was a recruiting niche approved before either of these cropped up. https://alpha.narrative.org/niche/recruiting So please downvote the Talent Acquisition niche if you agree they are redundant. https://alpha.narrative.org/niche/talent-acquisition Technically, the Recruitment Process Outsourcing niche could be considered unique because the niche name makes clear its focus is specific to outsourced recruitment - that's my take.

Done. Yeah, I think Narrative will have to incentivize people to go through these. I'm a pretty busy father, and don't *usually* have the ability to spend half an hour searching through previous Niches or their synonyms. Thanks for your attention to detail, @Malkazoid .

On suggestion I am reposting here. Hi Folks, Lots of people are voting for Vintage Glamour but as the existing owner of Vintage Style I see this as way too redundant. The suggestion is trying to be a broad Vintage catch-all, for which i already own. case in point: the dictionary term for Style: . a distinctive appearance, typically determined by the principles according to which something is designed. "the pillars are no exception to the general style" a particular design of clothing.

The fact that there are "related niche's" allowed is the reason I would not purchase a niche right now. I don't see why someone would pay for niche's today the prices are outrageous. Niche's only have value if Narrative is a success and assuming it will be, tokens are a better investment. Paying thousands of tokens for a Niche is ridiculous. I would rather save up tokens and buy popular niche's. The only reason Narrative can get away with such high prices is because the typical above average...

Thanks for raising the issue of poor descriptions again Bryan. I feel like this has not been clearly addressed by the @Narrative Network Team . My sense from Tribunal votes is that niches with seemingly viable names, but imperfect descriptions, seem to get approved by the tribunal? Which in turn forces me to vote in a similar fashion, because I don't want the rep penalty for voting out of step with how the Tribunal will finally vote - even though I suspect it would be better for us to reject...
