Narrative support niche vs Narrative 411 niche

Malkazoid ·
Hello... So the fine tuning saga of niche creation and appeals continues. JR brought this to my attention - the same user that proposed the Video Games niche, despite there already being a Gaming niche, has proposed a Narrative 411 niche, despite there being a Narrative Support niche already. In both cases, the questionable new niches were approved by the community. Both new niches now have appeals against them. For the Gaming vs Video Games, the case is pretty clear cut. Almost nobody...

In my opinion, the two niches are completely different. One is "Narrator Support", which is clearly about support for anyone using the Narrative platform (Narrators). This can include readers, content creators, niche owners, moderators, etc. "Narrative Niche 411" is focused purely on niches. As such, I think it clearly qualifies as a sub-niche that can stand on its own.

Brian, I understand your reasoning, but then I have to ask, what occurs if the sub-niche starts providing support outside of merely Niche support? Do I then have a claim to the tribunal? And does this mean that the Narrator Support Niche can also be used for Niche Ownership support?

Re: Narrative support niche vs Narrative 411 niche

Brian Lenz ·
Hi @JR , that could technically be a concern for any niche. There would be nothing to stop someone from cross-posting a piece of content to both niches, as well. Keep in mind that content creators choose the niches, not the niche owners or moderators. Content creators will likely centralize and focus their content on the more popular niches over time, so this is where good niche promotion comes in. If your niche is successful, it will stand tall as the obvious place to post Narrative support...

Hehe - I must be tired: I completely overlooked the word 'niche' in the title. I agree, that does make it a sub niche.

JR, my guess is that the broader niche wins out in this sort of scenario, in most cases. Because a post about with a niche tip is very likely to post to both the niche 411 niche, and your Narrative Support niche? Especially, as Brian mentioned, if you do your promotion well and everyone gets into the reflex of posting all Narrative information to Narrative Support.

@Brian Lenz Is it possible to withdraw a niche appeal? I know see that there is no conflict between these two niches.

@Malkazoid , there's not a way to withdraw an appeal, but no worries. It'll just get approved by the Tribunal again.

I know that this is kind of resolved but maybe it would be advantageous for the second one to just be called Niche 411. I think both these niches will make for very busy moderators and as we grow, one may just not be enough. I think this sub-niche is very important to the community.

Chinese support in Telegram

Malkazoid ·
Hello all, We've seen quite a few Chinese people arrive in Telegram asking if there is anything in Chinese language on Narrative. Understandably, but unfortunately nonetheless, the admins have had to let them know there is no Chinese language support right now, on the channel. Peter Kellerman, who has been an active and positive presence on the Telegram channel, contacted me to discuss what might be done to help Chinese people buy NRVE. It seems that we have identified that their interest is...

We have had steady interest from Chinese speaking people, which is awesome! I'm pretty sure we had a mini version of the white paper translated into Chinese, but not sure if where it is right now. Let me check on that and see if we can make that available (it may need updating). The challenge is that we haven't identified (yet) a Chinese speaking community member who wants to answer follow up questions, and we're a bit worried about how to support them after they approach and read the document.

That's great that there might already be a document in Chinese that just needs a refresh... I can totally understand the worry about what to do if you suddenly have dozens of folks clamouring for more info in Chinese. I wish I could help but but I don't have the language skills! I suggest you select some candidates, perhaps from nearby universities, and put them on standby to see if they are needed. It would be possible to train them up in a day with the important knowledge about the...

I will check into it. I do note that you used "Narrative" which could cause a situation where others would think you are a company official. I think it might be reasonable to change that but as I said, please hang tight while I check into it.

We did in fact change your name because you were using "Narrative". Eventually (prior to beta launch), the system will automatically prevent anyone from using "Narrative" as a name, but for now, we deal with them as they happen. (Also, once we get to beta, we will not be able to edit anyone's name.)

Ongoing patronage

Malkazoid ·
Another helpful suggestion from a certain Edward Morbius on Google+ (he moderates on the Google+ Mass Migration forum): ongoing patronage. I agree with him - this is something I think the @Narrative Network Team might want to take a close look at. I know we have plans slated for tip jar functionality already. But if we take it a step further, and allow people to pledge regular support to their favourite content creators, we'd be really taking it to another level, and replicating part of...

I've started a folder containing Word documents of what I plan to publish on Day One. One source I've found really helpful for things that can easily be edited for Narrative is social media, specifically things I've posted on Facebook. Many of us go on rants or write long posts regarding things relevant to our lives and the lives of loved ones. The drawback is that Facebook's post history is really lacking, and it can take a lot of time to search for old posts worth revamping while waiting...

Great topic @Malkazoid ! The thing that I have always admired most about social media is how it has opened the flood gates for people to explore their creative side. This goes for many people who used to say the cliche "No, I am not artistic. I can not even draw a stick man." The fact that social media has given way for people to have a platform to explore, photography, writing, drawing, and film-making either amateur or professionally is remarkable. I look forward to seeing how people...

First a reflection that is probably most relevant for members of the community who have been around for a few months, but perhaps interesting for others nonetheless.

I'm happy we can start to pre-publish content WOOT! I wish we had a bit of a dispersal in the pre-launch stockpile, instead of releasing a gigantic wave of content at the same time as it allows readers a better chance of seeing topics Of course there is a good argument to have it filled with a lot of content for new users to browse on day one, a lighter release with a 24 hour delay between content would be nice to make a time series.

Hey @freedom I suspect a lot of people published just to race to get their topics show up on the top 10 list for extra visibility (self-admittedly she winks), and have plans to re-do it as a draft closer to launch day, which allows you to self determine a more staggered publishing plan. Just my theory, anyways.

If you save something as a draft you can send it out in stages afterwards. You'll have to manually determine when to send it, but you do have the option of holding something back as a draft.

Hi @Jayme Soulati I just want to give you a heads up. When Content Marketing came up I voted it down because I felt it was redundant to my own niche Content Entrepreneur ( I wasn't alone in my voting nay either, based on redundancy). I decided to not put in an appeal to the tribunal at the time, until I saw the direction that the niche actually goes first, because marketing content could technically have some slight differences to the person who makes content for a living. Because you bought...

You're probably right; I've mostly been adding content whenever I can get a free half hour in a row without really caring much which niches will be in the Top 10 when the whole thing goes live. My main thing, though: Will Narrative include plagiarism checkers? I've been pulling some content off my personal blog but I could see some dishonest types ripping content off other sites they don't own just to boost their numbers.
