Optimizing finding moderators

Malkazoid ·
Hello all, I'd like us to put forth some ways to help the @Narrative Network Team increase niche moderator uptake. There are a relatively small amount of moderators nominated for the niche elections at present, and we want as many niches as possible to have moderators when the platform launches, naturally. Moderator scarcity could be a strong limiting factor for platform growth once the Beta launches. Reporting Page First item: please add the number of moderators, and number of open...

NICHE MODERATORS

MiguelIglesias ·
Hello. I have a niche of Dash and I have postulated myself to moderate it. I would like it to be someone else who performed that function and, as I understand it, should be the owner of the niche who nominates moderator candidates. Is that the process? If so, how can you name a moderator? Thanks for the response.

Issue with Moderators Election area

Emily Barnett ·
So happy we have this. But I see a pretty big problem arising. Almost nothing that is listed in the moderator election from page 5 onwards has nominees. I don't think this has to do with the quality of the niches, but rather people's lack of interest to scroll past 3 pages of anything. (i think search engines prove this). Given that they are listed first come, most of the Founders have moderators and will therefore collect payouts, and almost nobody from the patrons through to this summer's...

Question One about Moderator Center: certification and self nominations

Emily Barnett ·
Hi, I see that we can no longer nominate ourselves, unless we are paying for certification. I am not going to jump to the conclusion that this means you cannot be a moderator unless you certify, because we do still need the Nominate a moderator put in place. I will say this though. This is going to impact the ability to get the best moderators, and in some cases even activate your niche. If an owner does not comply with the certification, and they do not have a moderator yet, then they...

Moderator Nominations - how to find mine?

Serroc ·
In the early days, I admit I was very ambitious, and self-nominated on many of the niches in the 170+ pages of niches for "sale". I would like to remove myself from some of them (in case they are purchased and we get to the moderator stage of the platform) but alas, I cannot recall all of those that I was interested in moderating. And no, I didn't keep a list. I can see no way to do a search for where I might have nominated myself (or, gasp, if someone else nominated me) - so am I just...

Hello Miguel, Currently you can only nominate yourself. In the future you will be able to nominate others as well. Other users can nominate themselves for your niche, so get busy recruiting! Here is some reading on the entire Moderator process: https://spec.narrative.org/doc...ion-niche-moderation

Solid suggestions. I agree, these would be great measures to implement.

Yes, those suggestions are great. For attracting moderators, a clear flow chart showing what they do and what they get for doing it will help. That flow chart should show single or multiple moderators paths. Rewards and responsibilities work well for most people.

Re: Issue with Moderators Election area

I second this. I read somewhere that the Team was going to implement something to remedy this, so hopefully we'll see an improvement in the next update. I think it makes sense for some aspect of this to favor the early adopters, but not so much at the exclusion of others. Not sure what the most fair balance is. Something that would help is to have, alongside the current list, a prompt to enter some interests, that will then surface some suggestions of niches to moderate. The focus should be...

Haha - me too... I think Narrative will probably be collecting a little bit of data on people's interests at sign up time, so this can be one of the first applications of that data - show them the niches they are interested in subscribing to, but also potentially becoming moderators of.

Good on you both for scrolling through. I got to page 11 and then needed to get some stuff done. Honestly i think for the short haul providing the option to see them all categorized alphabetically is the best bet. ( the members list on the community board has a similar feature to restructure how you view the list) In this way people can get to their interests quickly. And if they want to get to the Founders 1st position picks they can click right back to the way they are listed now. But i...

Re: Issue with Moderators Election area

ok, an update to my original post. I just read in a recent blog post from @Ted that one of the new changes to the moderator elections is the following: "Because the system always tries to fill open moderator positions, we would no longer exclude niche owners who do not have moderators in place from being paid their “niche owner” network reward allocation". This is a massive improvement, at least for while the platform is growing. So it does make my initial concern, null in void with respects...

To quote the Co-Founder and CTO: "We built Certification as a multi-purpose tool to accomplish a few goals: ... 2. Determine the user's age. The user's age is used to grant access to restricted/18+ content when the user is 18+ years old. ... For purposes of Moderator requirements, item #2 is the reason Certification is required. It's not at all about proving how good of a Moderator you might be..." It comes across that getting the best moderators may not be the most important thing,...

Re: Question One about Moderator Center: certification and self nominations

Slaz ·
Same mixed feeling here. Not so much for the certification requirement but more so for users below 18 not being able to become moderators. If someone posts NSFW content in a niche where it isn't appropriate, any user browsing that niche could see it (unless niches get to approve tagged content first). An underage moderator with a lot of time may see and remove it quicker than an adult moderator who only gets to see and remove it after 5'o clock.

Re: Question One about Moderator Center: certification and self nominations

Emily Barnett ·
@Slaz yes my main concern of mixed feelings is the +18 for moderators. One question I wouldn't mind clarification on is @David Dreezer Does content get published instantly - then a moderator makes sure the content is copasetic. or Does it go into cue, until the moderator has a chance to review to make sure it is copasetic, THEN it gets posted after it has been cleared. I am not a fan of the idea that moderators MUST certify to become moderators. I just think this is adding too many barriers...

Re: Question One about Moderator Center: certification and self nominations

Malkazoid ·
Just chiming in on the part I think I can answer. Pretty sure content enters a queue, and only gets published once a moderator has reviewed it. I agree it isn't ideal that under 18 year olds will not be able to moderate. But I'm ok with certification for moderators being required. I don't think this will be a barrier for mass adoption. The platform will have a lot value beyond moderation, and those who want to moderate will generally accept there is a small hoop to jump through in order to...

I can't imagine content not getting published until a moderator approves it if we can't elect moderators until the Beta goes live. The site will go live, but there will be no content for several days while elections take place? That's ridiculous.

I believe the owners will moderate the contents of their Niches on Beta +1 until elections. Likely one of the reasons we can't push content to un-owned Niches.
Reply

Re: Question One about Moderator Center: certification and self nominations

Malkazoid ·
Yes, that is one of the reasons. The Team would have to develop functionality for a General mod pool, of folks who act as floating mods, and get sent content from unowned niches to either approve or reject. We gave them the idea for this functionality a long time ago, so they must have made the decision to not pursue it at this time, considering their lack of response to it and lack of pronouncement on whether unowned niches will ever be able to receive content.

Re: Question One about Moderator Center: certification and self nominations

David Dreezer ·
@Christina Gleason and @Gord are correct. Niche owners will moderate until Moderation elections are able to be held. For the initial period of the beta, content will go live and if they deem it necessary owners/moderators will be remove a piece of content, though the mechanism for that might not be polished looking. It is during this period that moderation tools are being built. We can't hold back content from going live while those tools are being built as it is necessary to get the content...

Re: Question One about Moderator Center: certification and self nominations

Well I don't want to be discouraging, but yes, it isn't ideal. And it is surprising. The roadmap merely mentions that the moderation centre would be up and running in November but of course it didn't include any moderation tools. Moderation tools weren't mentioned explicitly anywhere in the road map. I'm pretty sure that in this vacuum of information, most of us were thinking there would be enough in place at Beta launch for the owner/default moderator to screen content before it goes live.

Re: Question One about Moderator Center: certification and self nominations

Emily Barnett ·
@David Dreezer obviously you guys know, this needs to be a fast turn around to build the tools. You are right this isn't ideal. It is one thing to preemptively block a post from making money on a niche that it isn't properly associated with. It is another to remove it. Especially if it weirdly does start getting upvotes, and the owner has to now remove it. but i certainly understand the position the code team is in.

So do I - everyone knows what it feels like to have a deadline. But sometimes the best thing one can do is just push it back a bit. The Narrative team is lucky in that the deadline is self-imposed. There is no parent network breathing down their backs. The desire to release something half-baked is entirely self-inflicted. I say this with compassion: I've been there before, many times.

I, too, am weary about the content of some of those 'top' Niches and what will happen at beta. Maybe the tribunal will have some sort of veto power until things are running smoothly?

I find the Activities scroll meaningless. It's not friendly at all. I'd like to be able to search my own activity for a post, a comment, or any of my actual activity. I think the Activities channel itself is a misnomer since comments don't get listed there. On the moderator search feature, yes, I should be able to see a list of niches I've been nominated for and, when elections are done, actually elected for. I presume this will ultimately land in Channels. Perhaps there should be a separate...
