Bug in tribunal display for completed ICOs review

Malkazoid ·
Hello, The new alpha rocks! So this is the first little glitch I've seen: if you go to the tribunal page, then click to display the 'Completed' appeals, you'll see the ICOs appeal listed. The ICOs niche was rejected by the tribunal as a clear duplicate of the existing ICO niche. Yet the phrase: "Voting has ended. 0% of the Tribunal voted to reject the Niche." ... appears beneath this listing on the completed appeals page. It looks like it is just a logical error in the phrasing, and probably...

Throw your name in the Narrative New Member Section niche moderator pool. We need very patient moderators to deal with all the new question new members will be asking. You will be one of the first Narrators new members will meet. Check us out in the NARRATiVE NEW MEMBER SECTION niche pool.

Before the Alpha redesign release

Malkazoid ·
Hello! Thought I'd share a couple of thoughts as the time approaches for the redesigned Alpha. First is that the influx of new members has slowed to a crawl, and it might be advantageous to push advertising into new fronts to coincide with the launch of the redesign? Second is that it might be nice to save some screen grabs of the old Alpha and make available, in some way, a Before and After. It is so easy for people to take all the hard work for granted when they don't know what was there...

Rate of opening up new rounds on Alpha!

Emily Barnett ·
Anybody else noticing how exponential we are opening up new rounds of 500 members to Alpha these days? A month ago it was taking about 10 days now we are getting closer to 4-5 days before we reach 500. This is so great, and very exciting. Niches are getting approved much faster because we are usually reaching quorum in the three days set aside for voting. Good work everyone who is spreading the word about Narrative!

Re: Before the Alpha redesign release

Hi Molly, I guess what I could suggest then is perhaps that when you email current members to announce when the new Alpha is to go online, to engage us to spread the word through social media. I've only done a couple of rounds of posting about Narrative on social media because I'm sensitive to not spamming friends, colleagues and followers - besides sparse infusions maintain credibility. But this would be a genuinely worthy item to broadcast, and you could find many of us willing to do so.

We are pretty pleased with the amount of people who have signed up in these early days-it takes a lot of vision and a touch of early adopteritis to help build something. (As you know!) We've taken this opportunity during the Alpha period to strategically test out some marketing channels in preparation for our beta launch. We've been able to prove and improve upon our Cost Per Acquisition, which has been great. When we launched the Claim Your Spot campaign, we committed to email smartly and...

Accelerating the news cycle for Narrative

Malkazoid ·
In this thread, I'd like to put forth some suggestions, and invite others to put forth their suggestions, of efficient ways for Narrative to gain a broader and higher profile out there , starting now. So I think by now everyone is on page with the necessity of giving more information about development and aspects of the project, to the people out there who want to see signs of life. The @Narrative Network Team have been gradually upping their game in this arena - with the Newsletter,...

Re: Accelerating the news cycle for Narrative

At the risk of pointing out the obvious, the platform is called narrative, so you could hardly have a better reason to tell your stories! A true community is, to my mind, a collection of people who want to be part of something greater than themselves, and greater than the sum of its parts. Whether it's sustainability, decentralisation, community ownership, creativity or whatever else, you want people to want to be part of the tribe. Similarly, they want to be part of what they perceive to be...

Yes - could not agree more, Mark. Narrative is a very conducive name for a lot of reasons, and yes, it is showing us the way towards its own success, through its very name. Share the journey with the world. What you are doing is exciting, ambitious, and full of potential: those are the primary ingredients of a great story, a great Narrative. So tell it, please. The difference will be between launching with a couple thousand, somewhat weary members, or launching with thousands of people who...

@Melanie Mathos , here's a good article from the Atlantic, perfectly relevant to the fake news problem with Facebook and Google. https://medium.com/the-atlanti...iled-us-61b526beb817 The author, Alexis C. Madrigal , has 31000 followers. In his article, he did not know it at the time, but Narrative's human community moderation is an answer to the problems he spells out.

The Appeals area is definitely still a work in progress. We have some improvements already in the works for that area. Because only the Tribunal has to actively use that area, it is has been a lower priority. Agree though that the current language is quite convoluted.

A Few Tips for New Members starting in Alpha

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.

Method: Kicking the Facebook habit Category : broad on-boarding strategies I don't think it will be difficult for Facebook users to become curious about Narrative - there's a lot to be curious about, perhaps most prominently: - owning your content - getting paid for your content These are very simple notions that can be communicated quickly and effectively. It is once that curiosity is there that the obstacles come up. To name the biggest I can think of: - inertia ("all my stuff is on...

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

Eduardo Hernández ·
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...
Reply

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

Malkazoid ·
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.
Reply

Re: How can members help Narrative grow rapidly after launch

Eduardo Hernández ·
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

Malkazoid ·
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

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.

Wow there is alot of content in this thread. All great ideas. I for one will use my social media platforms to get the word out as most of you have stated. I plan on using both business and personal venues. Realistically, I have very few business associates and family that are Crypto Enthusiasts other than my boys. So I will be just talking about how the content within Narrative will drive the success. And the compensation for good content will be in the form of tokens that you can exchange...

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.)

@Malkazoid . We are aligning marketing activities with upcoming releases - and great idea to capture some screen shots. I will do this week to preserve the look and feel of before and after.

I'm all in for the idea of preservation. It's nice to look back on how things were after Narrative has been active for years. As for advertising, I believe member to member advertising will takeoff by itself by the time when content publishing is actually implemented.

I noticed the same thing! I came in on round 13 in Oct and we're already in round 25. So in 4.5 months at 30 days, we're signing up around 42 new people each day. But according to network stats we have 6,760 total members, which would mean each round of 25 didn't contain 500 members.

Re: Rate of opening up new rounds on Alpha!

I noticed that too!! The conversion rate from signing up for the next round, to the actual unlocking of Narrative, to setting up the actual profile needs to be improved upon. Perhaps more marketing on the email reminder to build more hype that people are about to be let into the platform. Something needs to be enticing to get people to actually come to the platform once the round has opened up to them. @Melanie Mathos ??
